Great book on neuroplasticity. Really important to realize how our brain is a healing machine and how we can participate in optimizing the health of our brain.
A General Theory of Love
This is a wonderful book that explores the biological foundations of love.
The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are
The title speaks for itself. Much more readable though less comprehensive than Allan Schore’s work.
The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion in the Making
Great book. Not an easy read. Really wrestles with the brain-mind conundrum in a most nuanced way. Still falls back on a biologistic solution.
The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit
Fabulous book that explores the relationship between brain physiology, culture, and spirit. Some of the science may be a tad outdated. Still a great and inspiring read.
Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self: The Neurobiology of Emotional Development
Now a classic in the field. Really tough read. Psychoanalytic underpinnings to a rigorous examination of the neurological dimensions of emotional development.
