A persuasive argument for hope! Learn to build the sections of the brain that protect us from depressive slides and slow down the sections that foster them. Allow the brain’s natural anti-depressants to emerge, grow stronger, and facilitate the ability to enjoy the good times, survive difficult times, and open to lives of greater resiliency and well-being.
