Please feel invited to have a look and communicate the book if you think ist worth.

Cultural difference in mother-infant-communication

There’s a lot being said about mother-infant-relationship. There’s also a lot to be said about the possible cultural differences or similarities.

Now it’s proofed that there’s a big difference in the embodied intersubjective engagement in mother-infant-tactile communication. ………..

Body-Psychotherapy

Body-Psychotherapy is a distinct branch of psychotherapy and has a long history and a theoretical position which is proofed by scientific research. It is theoretically and practically based among others on psychoanalysis, attachment and movement  theory, infant research and neuro-psychology.

Body-Psychotherapy involves an explicit theory of mind-body functioning. The common underline assumption is …………….

Italy the country of vital body language

I am just back from my short Holidays in Italy, from the Island of Sicilia. It is a wonderful place in the world. Green and fertile especially in spring. We lived in a private house and had wonderful conversations in the morning with Danilea, an Italian Lady who explained to us many interesting things about the Country, the culture, the Mafia of course and the people.

While listening to her we could watch her body language. In fact it is a great joy to experience this. The Italian Body lives while talking. German, Chiense, many peolpe in the South of America talk and prefer the verbal Expression. In contrast to that Italian People would probably feel this to be a punishment to them. They have to be their Body Language while talking. Talking seems te be Music. And words are always embodied words. No word without the Body.

Here is a very little Pictures which shows the normal radius of movement of the arms of an Italian man while talking (ref movement). In contrast to that you have the green line which shows the radius of arm movement of a South American man.

If you get curious just have a look at old Italian films. You will really enjoy what you hear AND see.

Moving patterns are like a finger print

Each person has a distinct way of moving that is constant, like a signature; this pattern can be observed and identified through disciplined analysis; and the resultant Movement Pattern is a reliable predictor of how people will behave in a variety of situations.

Warren Lamb was the pioneer of Movement Pattern Analysis which is mainly based and originated in the works of the choreographer and movement analyst Rudolf Laban.

Lamb worked for all kinds of organisations, fot the industry and in the field of politics. His Approach to Body language is of course very different to the main stream, more instant like body reading concepts.

The energy concept part 2 (Bioenergetic Analysis)

These emotions, feelings and physical sensations are the perception of internal movements of the “energetic body associated with its natural rhythms and vibrations. These “inner movements” are referred to as motility of the body. For a baby, this can be easily observed when one follows the constant interplay of movements like waves on a lake. These are caused by internal forces, without being subject to the arbitrary interference. All voluntary movements always have an involuntary component, which can be understood as a basic motility of the organism. The involuntary and voluntary activity are integral components of liveliness and spontaneity of human actions and movements. If it is missing or it is reduced, the body movements are mechanical and lifeless. Expressive movements always include elements of feeling, which always turn into involuntary components. These components …………..

A hesitating gesture

Chinese, especially female Chinese, like to expose themselves being photographed. They place themselves right away in front of the camera and wait for the relieving pic to be taken. Often they face something around themselves in order to give an impression of being related to this or that. Just like the little girl being related to this beautiful lotus flower.

Two aspects strike my mind almost always when I am aware of such a scene. First they expose and relate but in a more or less hesitating gesture. If you look at the hands or arms of the little girl you will see what I mean. She reaches out, or better to say remains ………

Dancing in the sunset, in Berlin

Perhaps you remember, some days ago,what I explained about my really striking experiences watching Chinese people dancing in the park.

Let me tell you something about an experience which I had in Berlin, in Germany. If you watch the little video you can get a similar impression which I got in the park in Beijing or elsewhere in China.

It is not so often, that you see people dancing outside somewhere in a park in Germany. It is really seldom and if you watch the people dancing you’ll get an impression of nice movement, joyful dancing and smiling faces. But in contrast to ……….
