I feel like










What does it mean: “I feel like”?

The phrase “I feel like” is part of a more general evolution in American culture. We think less in terms of morality – society’s standards of right and wrong – and more in terms individual psychological well-being… more

Emotionally strong people

Sometimes people want to be emotionally strong, sometime they have to be. But what does this mean to be emotionally strong and how can you judge a person`s internal state of feeling by what you see on the outside. Often people think emotionally strong people are quiet, never complain or don’t show too much emotional Expression. In contrast to this any signs of emotional ‘leakage’ (i.e., expressing emotional distress in any way) or tears (especially in men), is often viewed as evidence the person has difficulties coping and is emotionally weak.

This often is not correct and…………..

Trust your own body and not a diet

A diet makes you slim. You can read this headline and the additional concepts in every magazine, every week and every month. Mostly women, men increasing, believe in this. This of course is one big motor in the diet-market, every month a new diet. If you really have a look on this pattern of diet-market, you find out by observing that the proclamation of every new diet implicitly evaluates those which were presented before.

This is the one aspect to look critically on …………

Faces of soldiers: you cannot NOT be touched

It seems that war rules the world at many places. War is done by people. People have faces, faces which mirror the state of feeling before the war, during the war and after the war.

The photographer Lalage Snow has shared powerful series of photos showing the transformative faces of service men who had been in Afghanistan. The photos show significant differences in the three states of being. They show personal and psychological differences. Interesting is that the face by itself just look. At one face you don’t realise important differences. But when you put the three faces together you’re overwhelmed and even deeply touched by the relevance of these differences.

Lalage Snow does not have a special message as he said, but he said maybe the photos and the faces speak for themselves.

Look at those attractive and mysterious faces. They will make you want to keep looking.

Pet or Child?

Last week I was told a story which is not so unusual I think. A colleague of mine visited Germany for a training course. Her mother was supposed to come to Germany right after the last day of the training course. Mother and daughter then wanted to travel around in Europe and have a nice time together.

Unfortunately it did not happen to be so!

Without any obvious regret ……..

Relationship between nightmares and a tight jaw

More and more people suffer from their tight jaw. One result causes teeth problems. So people visit a dentist `cause they are aware of these problems and not of the chronically tensed jaw. Mostly the dentists don`t know the reason for the teeth problems. So they call this syndrome “bruxisme”. People feel some kind of a respect towards such a diagnosis and follow the dentist`s indication for a while. But as there is no real change they stop.

By the way “bruxisme” only means teeth crunching. Using a Greek labeling the diagnosis sounds important. But ………..

Practical work part 1 (Bioenergetic Analysis)

The BA as a body psychotherapy therefore works with the physical tension, the breathing, the shaping of the body and personality by the life experience / history, the individual mind and the relationship constellations in childhood and in everyday life today. The BA explicitly and specifically works with the process of respiration, the differentiated (body) perception, the physical (self-) expression. This is supported either by specific exercises / settings or by looking at this process on the level of transference and countertransference. (Lowen 1981, 1984, Koemeda-Lutz 2002)

The “grounding-concept” probably is the best well-known concept of BA. It shows …………

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 …………..
