You have to enjoy life and the sciences Lowen and Reich brought forward when Freud could no-longer allow himself and his students to conceive of a "libidinal" energy. I have recently been reintroduced to Lowen and Reich's work and I have to say they make me laugh and gain my serious interest in equal measure. I have Lowen's text on Bio-Energetics and this text struck me a great deal and a positive read when considering longterm health gains and interests in keeping my energy up by having a go at the exercises. The photo on the front says it all. LOL

I tried more times to do some of exercise, but I did not get the result expected. Lowen is great, but maybe I need more practice to get it out of me the energy that he's talking about in his book :-(

HASH(0x996eea98) out of 5 stars Not your typical self help book 5 Dec. 2005
By Steven Soren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The idea that there is a physical component to every psychological problem has always intigued me, and I had previously read a number of Alexander Lowen's books, and found them fascinating. Recently, I became very depressed over something in my life, a failure on my part to achieve something which on the surface level I could say to myself it's understandable, but beneath the surface I was judging myself very harshly. I went into therapy and also bought a number of self help / psychology books, nothing seemed to help much. I was having some pretty extreme physical tensions, and I remembered about Lowen and Bioenergetics. So I got this book, and what I can say is that doing some of the exercises in the book, in particular some of the exercises dealing with expressing anger, helped considerably. And it helped where the normal self help books did nothing. If you are having difficulty in your life and you find yourself interested in this approach, I recommend this book. It certainly won't cost you much and you might be surprised at it's impact.

HASH(0x9813627c) out of 5 stars If you want live in your body this will help 7 Jun. 2009
By Kunzang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was very helpful in grounding through one's body. The instructions are simple and images easy to follow. The effects were felt almost immediately as a feeling of relaxation and pleasure in both body and mind.

HASH(0x98133924) out of 5 stars If One Tries These Exercises, Lowen's Ideas are More Understandable 18 Jan. 2011
By Passionate Therapist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One thing about Alexander Lowen's ideas of feeling better, is that they can seem unusual. That is because the average person today is so disconnected to real feeling that we cannot recognize the sense (pun intended) in which he talks about feeling, desire, grounding etc. The only way to come to know it is to work the body. Not work the body to make it greater for the ego but to become comfortable in our own skin. This book is a generous gift of such exercises worked out by decades of trial and err. Just do some. Your feeling will increase. What you do with that greater, more real feeling is the subject of his other books.

HASH(0x98133630) out of 5 stars EYE-OPENING and LIFE-CHANGING book! 11 July 2013
By Danny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm amazed at how much this book has changed my life. I've read circa 20% of the book yet but the information opened my eyes and showed me how unbelieveably tensed I am. Thank God I found this great book at the age of 20. Doing the excercises and learning new things about how I hide myself (contract different parts of the body, especially chest and stomach)from the assumed rejection and disapproval is really EYE OPENING and LIFE-CHANGING experience.

Clarity, straightforward approach and delivery of informations make this book really easy to read. If you stumbled upon this book by accident or if you are thinking about buying it, do it. You won't regret.
