    Hi Folks,

    Here is piece on gratitude.

    I place gratitude in the same area of experience as pleasure and connection with self and others. These are powerful treatments for TMS because these experiences soothe the nervous system. I tend to object to "gratitude exercises" because they seem forced, and this article addresses this objection. The polyvagal theory of regulating physical disregulation is discussed too.

    Love is another feeling/awareness in the same group of soothing experiences. It is easy to love love.
