Embodied Mental Healthcare
(By Amy Wheeler)
We humans all share a universal need: We want connection and well-being, and we want to perform in life and work to our highest potential. We want to feel good mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually, so that we can become the best version of our selves.

In this book, I share with you the life secrets I have found most helpful in three decades of deeply transformational work with my clients. I want to show you that it is possible for you to feel emotionally stable and physically healthy almost every day of your life. I want to give you tools to manage anxiety and depression and show you how to live in a more balanced mental space. I want you to feel the powerful nature of Spirit as it moves through you. I want to tell the world that it is possible to live the life of your dreams! It doesn’t matter if you are a teacher, medical professional, first responder, full-time parent, teenager, high- level athlete, or retired—we can all live a more fulfilling life. 

Attaining your Optimal State® can be a life goal for people of any age, any race, any religion and culture, any socioeconomic level, and any gender or sexual identity. Although we all want to be happy, free of pain, and living our best lives, you may be asking yourself how it is possible that one method can work for so many different types of people. The foundation of the Optimal State® Method comes from India’s ancient yogis and includes universal truths that go beyond time and space. The wisdom of these sages, or rishis, has been passed down for thousands of years and withstood the test of time and context. There is no reason to believe these techniques will not work for you, just as they have for so many others.

Amy Wheeler delivers a concise and moving blend of eastern philosophy and western science in her book The Gold Zone. With an emphasis on lessening suffering for individuals and the potential for entire populations, this is a must read for many people. Not only is it personal, but informative for clinicians of all types, policy makers, industry leaders and anyone interested in more innovative methods to manage health.

Amy’s work as a Sport Psychology Consultant to the collegiate golf teams that I have coached has made a huge difference during our 25 years of working together. The Optimal State Method has helped my players in handling stresses and anxiety in all aspects of their lives. Now able to recognize when they face stress and can cope with it at the outset rather than having to deal with it when it starts to get overwhelming. I highly recommend The Gold Zone Book to anyone wanting to reduce stress and live a more balanced and happy life.
