Dr. Stanley H. Block helps people see their mind as never before by helping them recognize their identity system and then guiding them through simple mapping exercises to teach them how to bridge, which rests their I-System so that they can unblock their potential to deal with their career, health, or anything.”

Transform your life in a matter of ten days. I did.”
Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
Mind-body bridging is a new body-mind language that allows people to reconnect with their ability to function effectively. Since I have directly witnessed the power and efficacy of Stan’s work, I am very ready to state that the approach of mapping and bridging can be an adjunct to spiritual practice or it can stand on its own.”
Charlotte Joko Beck, bestselling author of Everyday Zen

This mind-body medicine-based workbook guides readers back to their inner reservoir of self-empowerment by showing them how to override a learned stress response and faulty brain network and regain access to their natural executive functioning. The mind-body mapping exercises outlined within teach readers how to reduce stress and develop a set of personalized, powerful, crisis-management tools. Moreover, since these exercises are quick and easy to do, they’ll become a welcome staple of your lifelong health regimen. But don’t be fooled by their simplicity. I’ve witnessed their powerful impact personally and in my work with cancer patients and their caregivers.”

Sit at a comfortable distant in front of your 52" high def. television, on the TV is Sharp vibrant colors and beautiful scenery, however there is a grey film covering the picture and things are not clear enough to distinguish the exact nature of what's in front of you.
IN 21 years of professional experience working with developmental disabilities. STRESS is as natural as involuntary reflexes, so over time you adapt to stressful situations and deal with them accordingly to make the best available life you can for others. By utilizing the teachings and specific maps and the practices in this book you lift the grey film, have an extremely brighter clearer view of what it is you are looking at in front of you, And with your God given talent you are aware and simply handle things you thought once too difficult.
Best of journeys!
After using these principals in my own life, I have successfully shared them with others, thanks to the systematic process spelled out in Dr. Block's books. I have also used these new found tools (awareness practices, thought labeling and mind mapping), to help me understand and implement suggests I have found in other teachings, such as, Be in the Now, and Don't Take anything Personally, etc. This is great advice, but difficult before my regular use of mindfulness awareness practices, and mapping my thoughts to find my underlying "Requirements" (which had previously been the cause of my personalizing things). This book helps to look at the root of stress and address the issue there, instead of distracting or treating the symptoms. I highly recommend it as well as Dr. Block's book,Come to Your Senses: Demystifying the Mind Body Connection
I hope this review is helpful
The workbook is very clearly laid out. The skills are laid out in a way that are easily understood and implemented into daily life. I have recommended this workbook to many people.
I use it in my life and recommend it to my coaching clients. Once you begin to recognize your story lines and stop them life is more peaceful. I know I can handle anything with a thought map and my bridging practice. Just like with most things - you have to do the work. The pay-off is amazing!
