Body approach in China and Japan

Dear Ulrich,

 I read your report on Psyche and Körper in Ost und West with great interest.

 The differences between China and the west seem much greater than between Japan and the west.

 I never worked in China, but went many times to Japan.

In Japan at first every client in a group expected to behave like others in the group.

There was a lot of social mask and group conformity.

When I was able, through somatic interventions,  to get below this “tertiary layer” of personality, and could reach

the primary layer, I found a lot of emotional health, vitality and spontaneity coming from  the early pre school years.

 The secondary layer of anger, fear of sadness could only be contacted when trust from this primary layer had been established.

 Wishing you all the best in your intercultural research

 Warm greetings

 David (Boadella)
