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 ... 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 read 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.
