Penelope Andrade shows how to tap into rich personal resources during those times we find ourselves adrift, frightened, or overwhelmed. This book is a wakeup call reminding us our lives may depend on staying closely connected to ourselves.

“I have read dozens of books in this genre and frankly didn’t expect to find anything new. But I was pleasantly surprised. The unique information in this book taught me when to let go–when to stop feeling the emotions–as well as how not to get wrapped up in the story, but rather, listen to my body. Furthermore, I was amazed how the author weaved in concepts from Nondualism, Advaita Vedanta teachings, Byron Katie, Vipassana and other traditions without any religious labels. A person could be an atheist or agnostic and enjoy and benefit from this book. It is loaded with tools, tips and insights that have helped me.”

Susan Schenck, LAc author of Beyond Broccoli: Creating a biologically balanced diet when a vegetarian diet doesn’t work.

Emotional Medicine Rx is fantastic! It’s so accessible, on the mark, so clearly, simply written and boiled down. When I was half finished I thought the author must be done because she’d already put out so much relevant, well organized material.  I can’t keep my single copy in my waiting room library long enough because people borrow it as soon as it returns. This book is clearly the culmination of a lifetime of experience. Bravo!”

Heather MacDuffie PhD, LCSW 

Emotional Medicine Rx is a wonderful book, beautifully written. The synthesis of the author’s many years of work as a therapist, meditation practitioner, and her commitment to deepening relationships translates into a profound understanding of emotions. In this book, she offers an elegant, simple and effective way of using attention to rapidly relieve emotional pain and restore well-being. I highly recommend Emotional Medicine.”

Nicolee McMahon, MFT, American Zen Teacher

“Emotional Medicine Rx has greatly helped my Science of Mind practice. I’ve learned to name and embody the physical sensations that accompany any emotional upsets. Further, I’ve learned to trust that experiencing my emotions this way leads to feeling really good. With this embodied and peaceful perspective my affirmative prayers are now more effective — Recognition and Unification steps flow effortlessly. My fondest wish is that all Science of Mind Practitioners have access to this healing book.”

Evelyn Eads, Human Resources Executive, Science of Mind Practitioner (RscP)

“Written from the heart, this book connects with many of the processes research is showing are helpful to human growth and the alleviation of human suffering. Facing the challenge of difficult feelings and thoughts is important for every human on the planet and this book is an aid in that process.”

“I was engaged from the first sentence.  Making and integrating all the personal examples from your own life connects me instantly to you. I feel as though you have written the book just for me.”

Doretta Winkelman, Director of Binational Education, San Diego Natural History Museum

“This book is a gift — a gift of love, experience and an enduring belief in the healing power of the mind/body. Thank you, Penelope, for your focus on the body and on the movement of emotions through the body. This is a wonderful contribution to the evolution of personal healing and psychotherapy.”

Barbara Thomson, Ph.D., MFT, CBT, Bioenergetic Analyst

“Reading this book was a pleasure. It is excellent — didactically sophisticated, scientifically informed and based on grounded experience. As your reader I trust you, the author, because while you are ‘selling’ me an extremely simple method for attaining well-being, it becomes clear that your concept of well-being is not a superficial happy-go-lucky one. Emotional Medicine offers peace and integrity in the face of difficult experiences, even facing one’s own process of dying.”

“Emotional Medicine’s unique approach combines Penelope’s heartfelt personal experience, her 40-plus years of clinical experience along with scientific information to support her theory. As in Feldenkrais, readers discover how to cooperate rather than coerce what is happening in the present moment to restore functional living. Emotional Medicine Rx offers the reader numerous easy ways to practice healthy emotional expression, thus creating a healthy lifestyle.”

Emotional Medicine Rx is an intimate reminder to listen to the wisdom of our bodies. Penelope Young Andrade gently guides readers out of mental over-analysis and into a sacred relationship with their true self. The peace and healing that results is an absolute gift. Highly recommended.
