Book Overview

A habitual movement as common as nail-biting or toe-tapping can be the key to pulling out addictive behavior by its roots. These unconscious movement "tags" indicate the places where our bodies have become split off from our psyches. When brought to consciousness and confronted they will often tell us very plainly where our psychological suffering originated, showing us where to begin reconnecting body and soul.

Insightful view on how we deal with emotions and our bodies

This is worth studying deeply. The author frames issues of addiction in a way that speaks to those of us who are don't appear to have deep addictions but who are always feeling something isn't right. She deconstructs the drives we have and helps put in perspective the ways we create addictions to cope with stress in our lives. Only she digs deeper, and helps me understand how profound this coping mechanism is and why we do it.

Body Psychotherapy in the 1990's

An excellent example of how body psychotherapy has develloped during the 1990's. The book is agreable to read, full of interesting ideas and examples, and the author obviously knows what is happening, not only in her field but in neighbouring disciplines.

A little gem...

I don't know if it's simply because I read it at the right moment in my life, but this book had and is still having a profound effect on me. A magical effect on me. Reading it feels like being home and every discovery it leads me to is so intense that I cannot read more than a few pages at a time. An alternative title for this book could be "Recovering our Aliveness". Recovering our desire to expand our chest and welcome every single oxygen molecules that keep us alive. Recovering our ability to feel. Happiness isn't in the content of our life, but in the very process of being alive. Why are we so afraid of it ? Why do we distract ourselves with addictive thoughts and body movements? Christine Caldwell guides you in your search for an answer, and offers concrete tools to finally walk hand-in-hand with your life force.I send her my gratefulness.

Getting our bodies back

This book by Dr. Caldwell is one of greatest books I have ever read. Although easy for any reader this book is a page turner that captivates the mind as well as the imagination. I can honnestly say that this book is among the very few that I have pulled off the shelf and read more than once, and would recomend it to anyone.
