Written over 20 years ago, this book is still one of my very favorites on holistic healing and positive psychology. Pearsall integrates traditions and teachings from the Polynesian cultures with scientific and medical research, especially in the area of psychoneuroimmunology, to encourage us toward a way of living that is deeply joyful, meaningful and connected to all beings and to our planet Earth.
He declares pleasure as our Seventh Sense which is "...an intuitiveness composed of all the basic senses. It directs and employs the other senses to detect what is true, healthy pleasure. Consider it an evolutionary sense for bliss and an enchantment with living."
