I'm Janet Ware Doucette, a psychotherapist with over twenty years of experience in counseling. I'm also the author of Getting to Gamma: A Journey for Those Who Didn't Expect to Take One. It combines the science of mind-body approach to wellness and biofeedback with the wisdom of meditation. This book is for anyone struggling with life-related disappointment, frustration and chronic stress. It’s also for those who already have everything, but still feel empty inside. Readers learn to manage stress, discover inner strength and, ultimately, reinvent their lives on their own terms.
Getting to Gamma teaches readers how cultivating 12 specific key insights can lead to personal growth, true life contentment and successfully balancing both a career and personal life in the post-pandemic world. It includes 35 guided exercises that teach practical techniques and tools that anyone can learn. Additionally, the workbook format offers case studies revealing knowledge gleaned from the wisdom practitioners experienced while using these contemplative practices.
Getting to Gamma not only offers advice on effectively managing life stress but also on navigating a world of uncertainty amidst all the post-pandemic challenges we now face.
The funding goal is to self-publish this book and distribute it through my website and other direct consumer channels, such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. My ultimate goal is to share these same successfully proven therapeutic techniques used with high profile celebrity and business clients with everyone else.
I‘ve currently written ten of twelve chapters which have been professionally edited and reviewed. Reaching my funding goal will facilitate finishing the final two chapters and developing the book’s companion self-help website which can be viewed at Janet Doucette .com. This portal will feature membership access to all thirty-five audio recorded exercise techniques.
Funding will also cover the cost of an attorney's "opinion of counsel" to review the completed manuscript for any copyright issues.
This book is intended for people trying to balance work, a personal life and relationship stress while developing optimal wellness of mind, body and spirit. It combines Buddhist psychology, western psychological traditions and evidence-based knowledge from neuroscience, psychoneuroimmunology and the mind body approach. I teach readers how to apply practical meditation techniques for navigating life’s challenges the same way I have taught my clientele of elite learners.
Getting to Gamma successfully bridges the gap between ancient wisdom traditions and practical coping techniques within a scientifically proven matrix for the complexities modern life. This book benefits anyone directly impacted by those challenges who wishes to live a more connected, purposeful life.
