Breathing, sensing, and moving—the ways we know our body—carry tremendous contemplative potential, and yet, we often move through our days unaware of, or in conflict with, our physical selves. Feeling human again is catching on, though. A gentle revolution of returning home to the body is happening. The movement has begun and every BODY is welcome. In The Flesh distills decades of embodied exploration with a unique blend of reverence, wit, and humor. Drawing on cognitive neuroscience, it offers insights and practices that help us recover our lost physical wisdom—to integrate our bodies with mindfulness, to regulate emotions, and to develop attuned relationships.
Part provocative eBook and part workbook, Brain, Incognito navigates the mysterious underpinnings of emotion to illuminate its surprising depth—and challenges conventional ideas about the connection between emotion and rationality.

Brain, Incognito offers unique insights into how to align your beliefs with your highest values, transform fear into inspired action, and purge the self-defeating thoughts that are holding you back from living your healthiest, sexiest and most vibrant life.
