Banyen's Description: 

Sophrology was created 60 years ago in Spain by Alfonso Caycedo (1932-2017), a neuro-psychiatrist searching for a gentle practice to ease the physical and mental stresses of daily life for his patients. He sought a simple, easily taught way to develop harmony of body and mind, a way that did not require years of study, radical lifestyle change, or dramatic alterations to diet. Sophrology or dynamic relaxation addresses the inevitable stresses of contemporary life—and the challenges individual to each of us. In 10 to 15 minute practices, readers learn to cultivate resilience, confidence, and clarity. They utilize relaxation, meditation, and visualization in ways designed to support their personal needs and goals. Sophrology is widely practiced all over Europe in schools, hospitals, maternity clinics, community centers, rehab centres, and is often prescribed by doctors. Many athletes use this technique too.

Sophrology offers the chance for you to pause, to connect with and clear stress today, and to channel your resources for a better tomorrow, true to your own self.

As author Dominique Antiglio writes, one appeal of the practice is that rather than providing cookie cutter solutions, sophrology recognizes that happiness means something different to everyone. Her goal here is to give every reader the sophrology-based tools to find that happiness by and for oneself.
