C.L.E.A.N.S.E is an acronym featured in the book Emotional Detox, Simon & Schuster. Emotional detox is a mindful method (using C.L.E.A.N.S.E) for purifying undigested and over processed emotions. Each letter represents a mindful tool. Once you learn all seven tools, the C.L.E.A.N.S.E practice becomes a three minute daily practice for digesting your emotions. It is the reactivity (not the emotions) which can lead to feelings of instability, disconnection and bodily strain.
