Oh, the mind-body connection. It’s something I know well, using DBT and cognitive therapy in both my professional and personal life.

The Source dives in to this very connection in both psychotherapy and neuroscience capacities. There is a deep connection in the way we think and the way we act, and The Source gets to the root of all of it.

The way we think has a lot to do with the way we both behave and the way things actually turn out, reframing intention and interaction in a completely new light.

Tara Swart shares her personal story of coming to a place of desperation and making a change. Her backstory of hitting her ultimate low, resonated with me, though her bottom was the catalyst for a huge breakthrough.

That breakthrough lead to advances in brain scan technology and clinical practice, exploring the imaging of our darkest and deepest thoughts. Naming emotions, recognizing feelings, and actually putting action plans in to place all come together to make a tapestry of forward positivity for the road ahead.

She ropes in modern film and current events to pave a path even the greatest skeptic can follow.

More than a self help book and more complex than a simply instruction manual, The Source is the every-person’s guide to loving a better life.
