Somatic Experiencing

“For growth and development, any live organism and its supporting environment must be in intimate contact, However because of our cultural conditioning, as well as frightening and aversive events from the past, we have learned to block this organic flow.”

“Perhaps the most concrete reason to pay attention to your body is that it is a ready tool to resolve various physical, emotional and psychological symptoms.”

“…’simple’ awareness, along with a fortified tolerance for bewildering and frightening physical body sensations, can seemingly, as if by magic, prevent or dissolve entrenched emotional and physical symptoms.”

Peter Levine (2010, pg.290-291) 'In an Unspoken Voice'
