Overview

Build a Natural Foundation of Emotional Wellness
with Dr. Andrew Weil

Just as the body is designed to heal itself, so too are we wired for emotional well-being. With The Spontaneous Happiness Prescription, you'll learn Dr. Andrew Weil's most effective strategies for overcoming anxiety and depression while cultivating a lasting "sea level" of contentment, comfort, and serenity—naturally. Day by day, you'll raise your "happiness baseline" by making simple dietary and lifestyle changes, calming your senses, improving your sleep cycles, connecting more deeply with others, and utilizing other practical strategies emerging from current medical research.

The Spontaneous Happiness Prescription includes one instructional CD narrated by Dr. Weil and two practice-filled CDs where he and his colleagues guide you through:

  • Powerful breathing exercises to help refocus both mind and body for calm and resilience
  • Mindfulness meditation for increasing awareness and presence—two states found in our most fulfilling moments
  • Practices for fostering gratitude, forgiveness, and loving kindness
  • Laughter Therapy, and more

This is a companion program to the book Spontaneous Happiness—also available as a seven-hour unabridged audiobook read by the author, available online or at bookstores.
