What it takes to heal : how transforming ourselves can change the world / Prentis Hemphill.

Hemphill, Prentis, (author.).


"As we emerge from the past few years of collective upheaval, are we ready to face the complexities of our time with joy, authenticity, and connection? Now, more than ever, we must learn to heal ourselves, connect with each other, and embody our values. In this revolutionary book, Prentis Hemphill shows us how. Becoming the People of Our Time argues that the principles of embodiment awareness-the awareness of our body's sensations, habits, and the beliefs that inform them-are critical to lasting healing and change. Hemphill, an expert embodiment practitioner , therapist, and activist, who has partnered with Brene Brown, Esther Perel, among others, shows us that we don't have to carry our emotional burdens alone. They demonstrate a future in which healing is done in community, weaving together stories from their own experience as a trauma survivor with clinical accounts and lessons learned from their time as a social movement architect. They ask, "what would it do to movements, to our society and culture to have the principles of healing at the very center? And what does it do to have healing at the center of every structure, and everything we create?""-- Provided by publisher.
