Ruslan Zhukovets is a psychotherapist who has been practicing for more than fifteen years. Working with patients, he was convinced that each emotion is experienced in its own way by the body. For joy, literally "bursting with chest" (diaphragm opens), for offense – "everything shrinks in my chest" (breathing problems), because of shame I want to "burn out" (burning sensation in my body), and because of fear – "my legs weaken" (diseases of the legs ). And if the emotion remains unmanifested, then it “gets stuck” in the body, and later it turns into diseases and wears out the body.
Ruslan has developed his own method of working with emotions, which is described in detail in this book. You will disassemble each emotion separately and learn how to “tame” it.

“In this book, I tried to give answers to many questions concerning the spiritual quest, outlining them according to the situation in which we are.
The method of presentation – in the form of chapters, each of which is devoted to a separate issue, sometimes creates the impression that they can be read in any order. However, many of the questions posed by me are internally interconnected, and often isolated reading of one or two chapters does not give a holistic view of their essence. Therefore, for a better understanding, I would recommend a consistent reading of the chapters in the part that you liked to get all possible benefits from this reading. ” Ruslan Zhukovets
