Author Sarah Peyton, a certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication, explains what recent research in neurobiology and neuroscience tells us about our need for connection with other people and our abilities to witness ourselves and love ourselves with compassion. She provides exercises so that readers can harness these abilities to find inner peace and self-love. Opening chapters explain the importance of how we talk to ourselves, outline the goal of emotional regulation, and introduce the concept of the resonating self-witness. Subsequent chapters give directions for meditations and other exercises for calming anxiety, healing old wounds, conquering fear, returning from dissociation, healing self-hatred, and letting go of addictions and compulsions. The final chapter gives advice on connecting with others from a new-found place of compassion. The appendices offer self-assessments, a glossary, online resources, and recommended reading. The book also contains simple b&w diagrams of brain structure. Annotation ¬©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
