THE POWER OF STORIES
So many misunderstandings, hurts, and little fault lines that may grow into bond-shattering earthquakes can be minimized or even fully eliminated if only we practice more mindful, compassionate, and open communication-first with ourselves and then with our partners. You can change your story. You can repair your relationship. You can change your brain at a neurological level by rerouting elemental neural pathways that are associated with those stories that you made up to explain and face reality when you were younger. --Dr. Linda Miles
Dr. Miles' new book "Change Your Story, Change Your Brain for Better Relationships" combines essays and mindfulness practices to strengthen your relationships and provide healing for yourself and those close to you.
