Shift Your Mood provides an easy and active form of mindfulness to calm reactivity. Rik includes stories from real people’s lives that show how you can soothe anxiety and stress, overcome obsessions, and tame your inner critic. As you release emotional tension, you will naturally shift to the source of your own love and inner wisdom. “Rik Isensee has done a masterful job of integrating scientifically-based yet cutting edge material from psychology, brain science, and spirituality into a comprehensive collection of practical tools you can use every day to feel better, happier, and more loving. Rik's sincerity and warm-heartedness make each page glow. This book is a gem.”—Rick Hanson, Ph.D. Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom.
