Banyen's Description: 

As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients—and for herself—she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical and spiritual wellness that equips people with the interdisciplinary tools necessary to heal themselves. She began to share these resources on her Instagram account—and soon "The Holistic Psychologist" (with over 2m followers) was born.

In How to Do the Work, she offers both a manifesto for the SelfHealers movement and a guide to creating a more authentic, joyful life. Drawing on the latest science from a diversity of scientific fields and healing modalities (epigenetics, polyvagal theory, microbiome research, and more), Dr. LePera presents an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to mind-body-soul wellness that's unique.

SelfHealing requires a daily commitment  to small, sustainable actions that cumulatively lead to lasting change. She shows readers how to recognize their core beliefs, identify conditioned thought patterns, and tune in to their own intuition to reconnect to their true Selves. Throughout this process, readers may recognize the lasting impact of past experiences and traumas on current relationships, beliefs, and hevaviors. These behaviors can keep people stuck in frustrating, painful patterns of codependency and self-betrayal. In How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera offers wisdom and practical resources that can help create meaningful change and break down destructive patterns. Nothing short of a paradigm shift in mental wellness, this book celebrates the power of individuals to heal themselves and reimagine their potential.

This is what this work is all about: the empowerment of being able to choose. We can choose how we treat our body, how we show up in relationships, how we create our realities and envision our futures... There are no road maps, no directions, no gurus, no sages. There are no checklists that will fix you or magical pills that will cure you... There is always an opportunity to grow, evolve, and inspire, which trickles out into the collective. The point of this book is to return us to our authentic essence, our pure awareness, the embodiment of who we were before conditioning took hold. We want to reconnect with the collective We and in doing so access the deep well of Self-empowerment within us all... This is what healing is about: developing choice and trust in the tools we use to truly live our impermanent life, no matter what may come.
