ABOUT THE BOOK
Mindful Somatic Awareness is a gentle guide for those looking to transcend their fear and worry and awaken to their true nature through mind-body discipline. The pages of this book provide you with a basic, yet detailed understanding of the extraordinary relationship between the mind and body and highlights how deep emotional wounds embedded in the interior landscape of your mind-body consciousness point to the origins of your chronic fear and worry.
With each chapter, you are given exercises to expand your understanding of how early fear-based experiences shaped you and how they are linked to your present anxiety and emotional overwhelm. The exercises also provide you with a blueprint for healing these emotional wounds so you can move through your fear and engage life authentically and with an open heart.
“Understanding anxiety through the somatic lens is to see that anxiety is a state of present-moment fear based on past experiences that are informing your expectations of future events.”
