"[E]ssential for anyone seeking to reconnect their body's needs with their minds and daily routines, relieving some stress in the process." -- USABP Journal "This book is a rare work in its crossing of two worlds: the intricate, technical world of psychological and biomedical research, with its increasingly sophisticated technologies and languages; and the lived world of becoming mature adults. Alan Fogel succeeds in weaving together these disparate worlds with his lucid writing grounded in his thorough understanding both of the importance of embodied self-awareness in our ordinary lives and the sciences that make sense of that dimension of our being. It is an eminently practical book, providing many clues for how we might expand the benefits of embodiment in negotiating the challenges of our lives and, at the same time, gain a familiarity with the scientific basis for their efficacy, thus counteracting inevitable tendencies toward self-doubt and cynicism." -- Don Hanlon Johnson, PhD, professor of somatics, CIIS and author of Everyday Hopes, Utopian Dreams: Reflections on American Ideals "It is a truly revolutionary act to render our vague, instinctual knowledge about the body and self awareness into something understandable, urgent, and applicable to everyday life. In so doing, Alan Fogel has laid a solid and comprehensive foundation for far-reaching changes in psychotherapy, medicine, and everyday life." -- Daniel Stern, MD, Honorary Professor of Psychology, University of Geneva and Adjuct Professor of Psychiatry, Cornell University School of Medicine "Fogel draws widely on multidimensional research...all the while addressing these processes with great understanding and ease...Fogel goes further than understanding the complex neurobiology of the human mind by bringing a wealth of information and understanding to the neurobiology of the body and its interconnectedness with the mind. He skillfully shifts the domain of conversation from processes of the mind/brain to the felt sense of the lived somatic experience." -- Rosen Method International Journal "[U]ses recent research in developmental neuropsychology and biology, blends in research with applied therapy and offers insights on alternative medical practices." -- Bookwatch
