"While we have learned during the past few decades the importance of emotions and beliefs in health, the body has too often been neglected, or regarded as a mechanical object that sooner or later is doomed to fail. In A Guide to Body Wisdom, Ann Brode gives the body its due by showing how it can function as a source of wisdom and strength in total harmony with the mind. Brode's perspective is long overdue, offering a holistic, balanced view of what it means to be human."—Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind
"This book includes a myriad of everyday ways to awaken and experience the body's innate intelligence. It is full of interesting facts, intriguing exercises, and useful strategies."—Risa Kaparo, PhD, somatic psychotherapist, creator of Somatic Learning, and author of Awakening Somatic Intelligence
