An expanded take on traditional Embodied Self-Awareness therapy, ideal for practitioners in all areas of body-focused work, including yoga, meditation, and somatic psychotherapy.

Embodied Self-Awareness (ESA) is a somatic approach to treat trauma and other mental health concerns by helping people connect directly to thoughts, sensations, and emotions as they arise within the body. Here, psychologist Alan Fogel introduces Restorative ESA, an expansion of traditional ESA that incorporates three new and unique ESA states: Restorative, Modulated, and Dysregulated. Using a research-backed approach, Fogel explains their underlying neuroscience with concrete examples to illustrate how these states impact our personal and professional lives.

Fogel shows that wellness is more than the ability to moderate one's inner state by regulating and tolerating emotions. By shifting from states of doing to allowing, from activation to receptivity, and from thinking to felt experience, we can access the expansive power of the restorative state and heal the body, mind, and spirit.
