(excerpt from the book):
Each week at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, I see patients struggling with challenges to their physical and emotional health that sometimes seem overwhelming. Although coping with problems such as depression, cancer, and heart disease can be exhausting, I’ve found that if people are willing to look at the story behind their illness (including core beliefs, toxic emotions, and painful memories), and healing and transformation can occur. Free to Love, Free to Heal is a step-by-step guidebook that helps readers identify and release their painful stories and beliefs, reclaim their health, and write a compelling new chapter in their lives.
