More Description from Internet Sources--
We've long known that changing mental or emotional focus can help change physical state. Think of doctors prescribing stress management to patients at risk for heart attack, or consider athletes who visualize performances in order to make it happen. It's mind over matter, and it's something we readily accept. Less well explored is the fact that the bodymind link is reciprocal: Change your physical state, and you can change your mental or emotional focus. Change the way you move in deliberate, carefully prescribed ways--repattern your body--and you can repattern your mind, emotions, and spirit in ways that let you live the life you know you can live, the life you've always wanted to live. Every Move You Make gives readers the practical tools for making these changes. Each chapter addresses a different aspect of life that may need modification: self-image, relationships, sexuality, career, creativity, stress, and anxieties and compulsions. The chapter then presents the author's proprietary four-action process for repatterning body movements to "fix" the problem. The process includes a specific sequence of movement exercises--based on Taiji, Qigong, and Shintaido and illustrated in photographs--plus complementary practices for intention, visualization, and vocal affirmation.
