5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding the connection between mind and body, 25 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness (Paperback)
As someone who works within the mind/body industry, I find this book to be priceless. We still have a long way to go to catch up to what Levine is proposing as a very real connection between our bodies and our emotions, unfortunately. After having read it I am left wondering, how did we get to the point where, as a society, we came to believe that our bodies where simply these appendices we use for locomotion and nothing else?

The evidence Levine presents is very compelling, leading us step by step in a journey of understanding how exactly the body stores emotions, and in particular trauma which more the emphasis of this book, and how that will have such a strong impact in our lives. It changes our common perspective from the typical couch therapy purging out of past experiences, to one where the body is also seen as part of the experience itself, and as such is integrated in the healing process.

It also explains much of what I have seen through my own work in dealing with people's bodies on a daily basis.

Highly recommended.

Responding to your observing that we treat our bodies as appendices, there's a great cartoon in Michael Gelb's Body Learning to the effect that the body is a machine for moving the head to where it wants to go. I spent 30 years in that illusion and since then exploring the reality of embodiment (through Feldenkrais) has been a delight.
