For two decades, David Gershon and Gail Straub have taught thousands of people how to make their dreams come true--and Empowerment builds on that real-life experience. Gershon and Straub believe that our thoughts and beliefs create the actual conditions of our life; to change things, we must first alter our consciousness and our thought processes. That's what this book helps readers do, through practical techniques, inspiring stories, visualizations, and exercises for self-evaluation. It covers seven areas of life: relationships, sexuality, money, work, body, emotions, and spirituality.
