a cognitive mind that emerges from the brain, a somatic mind centered in the body, and a field mind that emanates from our connection to and relationship with larger systems around us.This book describes the neurolinguistic basis for each of these minds and presents a variety of practices, exercises and techniques through which people may improve their lives, work more effectively with others and grow personally.
