As humans we are cognitive beings, and yet we experience our world primarily through our body. Not only do our sensory organs continuously tell us what they observe; we often also have a direct “gut feeling”, we feel how our stand is or we sense if something is getting too close. In addition to all its other tasks, our body also always acts as a bridge: a bridge to experiencing, to our next impulse, to expression and to learning something new.
Just when our thoughts are going around in circles, or we thought about it all and thus feel like we are stuck, our body can show us new ways and open the gates. The work with the body often is also more immediate than staying purely on the verbal and cognitive level in psychotherapy.
In the course of the process we can learn to experience more fully, feel more connected to our body, feel more secure and trust our body again, to draw from its wisdom and strength again and thereby become whole again.
