NEW SCIENCE / NEW AGE
“An insightful exploration of the powerful capacities of the mind-body connection and its inherent link with perception.”
--Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Healing and Natural Health, Natural Medicine
“The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion is truly connective, bridging the disciplines of biology, neurology, immunology, psychology, and spirituality. This is a book for the 21st century that will open and enlarge our minds, hearts, and spirits.”
--Miriam Greenspan, author of Healing Through the Dark Emotions
Contemporary science holds that the brain rules the body and generates all our feelings and perceptions. Michael Jawer and Dr. Marc Micozzi disagree. They contend that it is our feelings that underlie our conscious selves and determine what we think and how we conduct our lives.
The less consciousness we have of our emotional being, the more physical disturbances we are likely to have--from ailments such as migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and post-traumatic stress to anomalous perceptions such as apparitions and involuntary out-of-body experiences. Using the latest scientific research on immunity, sensation, stress, cognition, and emotional expression, the authors demonstrate that the way we process our feelings provides a key to who is most likely to experience these phenomena and why. They explain that emotion is a portal into the world of extraordinary perception, and they provide the studies that validate the science behind telepathic dreams, poltergeists, and ESP. The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion Challenges the prevailing belief that the brain must necessarily rule the body. Far from being by-products of neurochemistry, the authors show that emotions are the key vehicle by which we can understand ourselves and our interactions with the world around us as well as our most intriguing--and perennially baffling--experiences.
MICHAEL A. JAWER is an emotion researcher and expert on “sick building syndrome.” He lives in Vienna, Virginia. MARC S. MICOZZI, M.D., Ph.D., is adjunct professor of physiology and biophysics at Georgetown University School of Medicine. He edited the first U.S. alternative medicine textbook, Fundamentals of Complementary & Alternative Medicine. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland, and Rockport, Massachusetts.
I got this book in a very timely manner and it is a very good book.
My views differ substantially from those of Jawer (and I presume those of Micozzi as well, though his voice is nowhere explicitly evident in the book).
Very well written, easy to read and helpful as a resource for those with emotional intensity, physical sensitivities, and spiritual strengths.
