Publisher's Summary

In these turbulent times, just about every solution you can think of has been put forth by someone, somewhere, as a way to calm the waters and live with more happiness and ease. But the fact is you cannot think your way to a better life. Change isn't something your mind can accomplish alone. It calls for mind and body to work together in a deeper unity than you may ever have imagined.

Neuropsychologist Mario Martinez is a pioneer in the science of the mindbody - his term for that essential oneness of cognition and biology - and a passionate advocate for its power to reshape our lives, if we work with it consciously. In The MindBody Self, he builds on the foundation he laid in the critically acclaimed MindBody Code to explore the cultural conditions that coauthor our reality and shape every aspect of our lives, from health and longevity to relationships and self-esteem. Then he offers practical tools we can use to shed outworn patterns and create sustainable change.

You'll learn about:

  • How our cultural beliefs affect the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of disease
  • The difference between growing older (which we all do) and "aging" by our culture's standards (which we can learn not to do)
  • What happens when we move "beyond the pale" of our tribe's expectations
  • How to navigate adversity using uncertainty as a guide
  • Biocognitive tools for a healthy life

The MindBody Self presents groundbreaking ideas derived from rigorous scholarship - but you don't need a background in science to use what you find here. Each chapter concludes with exercises and experiential processes that make complex scientific discoveries not only accessible but applicable. The result is a paradigm shift in which the myths of doom are shattered by the science of hope, survival takes a backseat to meaning, and fear gives way to love.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Age doesn't determine ones health

I turned 40 and was told by my family to get reading glasses because I was now 40. At 44 I still don't use reading glasses. My siblings all now over 40 or right at it all have them and refuse to believe I don't need them. I was taught like so many others as I grew up what aging was like. Then I went around the world learning from people about their cultures. I stopped believing what I was being told. I could take you through all I learned. However, the author of this book does it so much better than I could do it!
I enjoyed this book because it looked at aging as form of programming rather than from the prospective actual biological process. Here you will be shown how people are programmed from day one to believe something as well as how hard it was for them to change it. The answer is really a simple one with a complex set of steps. You first have to see the programming which is where the body comes in to say when the body is really having an issue or just responding to programming. There is a difference between the two. Read the book and you will what I am talking about.

Chapters

Have the mind body code and love it . Bought the mind body self and while I'd give the content a 10/10 from mario I was a bit disappointed there is no breaks between sections and chapters it's one continuous stream . I know you can select the chapters manually but it's hard to even know where your up to . Much preferred the breaks between the chapters on mind body code
