What was the idea, or spark, that first set off the need to write Hidden Within Us: A Radical New Understanding of the Mind-Body Connection?
Startling observations from conversations with patients that indicated that they were unaware of emotions related to prior severe stress or trauma, and noticing rapid resolution of medical conditions among those patients who gained awareness of long-repressed emotions.
How much research did you undertake for this book and how much time did it take to put it all together?
Research over many years of clinical practice. About 4 years to write the book in my spare time.
Did you find anything in your research of this book that surprised you?
I did not put fully coalesced thoughts into the book. It was the process of writing the book that helped coalesce the thoughts.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
That they will understand the concept of repression of emotion, understand it as a gift of evolution, and trust that they can tolerate emotions that their unconscious allows to come up, and heal.
