Mental health expert and trauma therapist Dr. Anita Phillips reveals how boldly embracing your emotions is the key to living your most powerful life.
We know our emotions are powerful. Yet all too often we've been taught to view our emotions with suspicion, seeing them as something to be suppressed, managed, or mastered. But what if we stopped fighting our emotions? What if we understood that the heart is not a battlefield but a garden to be cultivated?
Blending spiritual insights, the latest discoveries in neurobiology, and her own research and work as a licensed therapist, mental health expert Dr. Anita Phillips offers readers a revolutionary way of seeing the connection between spirit, heart, mind, and body. Just as gardens flourish in good ground, the abundant life you've been seeking is rooted in the soil of your heart.
Unearthing links between cutting-edge scientific inquiry and Scripture's ancient use of gardens to reveal what it means to truly flourish, Dr. Anita seamlessly integrates the spiritual, psychological, and biological dimensions of the human experience.
The Garden Within will equip readers to
- resolve the battle between their heart and mind once and for all,
- identify personal pain and trauma and begin their healing journey, and
- flourish by learning to cultivate their unique inner garden.
This book provides readers with the tools they need to nurture parts of themselves that have been misunderstood for too long, setting them free to live just as the Creator intended. Authentic. Fruitful. Powerful.
