4.0 out of 5 stars A little gem, 24 Mar 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Holding to the Center in a Time of Confusion: Writings on Place, Community and Body (Paperback)
I bought this because I am interested in mind-body approaches and the idea of centreing in both psychology and martial arts. This is a nice, thoughtful and insightful collection of essays around the theme of embodied knowledge. If you practice Aikido, Tai Chi (my art), yoga or meditation I think you will identify with the author's approach and enjoy the book. I have knocked off one star because I think the book is expensive and also the author does not include any references. I can appreciate he may take the view that giving references might detract from his idea that knowledge needs to be embodied to be useful, but some of the concepts in here could do with a little more context. Nevertheless a worthwhile book which embodies some uncommon wisdom.
