Over the past 15 years, psychiatrist Dr. Anna Yusim has made a startling discovery that flies in the face of most modern medical teaching, including her own. Her patients' primary complaints, ranging from anxiety to depression to sexual dysfunction, often coincide with spiritual neglect--an all too common problem in Western cultures that champion intellectual development over spiritual care.
Medical research is now substantiating what Dr. Yusim has known to be true for many years: spirituality is a powerful path to healing. Drawing from the best in Western medicine (and her training at Stanford, Yale, and NYU), as well as teachings from Kabbalah, Buddhism, and South African shamanistic traditions, Dr. Yusim has developed a program that marries empirical science and spirituality for true healing. Using the techniques Dr. Yusim has used to help over 1,000 individuals realign with their higher purpose--authenticity, empowerment, meaning, and connection--FULFILLED tunes readers in to the voice of their soul and teaches them how to live happier, more fulfilling lives.
Filled with practical wisdom, interactive exercises, and fascinating research, and integrating the best of Western medicine with Eastern philosophy, FULFILLED will appeal to skeptics and seekers alike, and to readers who are looking for more meaning, joy, and happiness in their lives.
