Psycho-Peristalsis in the Shared Body - By Shlomit Eliashar & Yael Shahar
"Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow...” (A.W. Tozer, 1948)
Relational Body Psychotherapist
Relational-body psychotherapy invites us, you and me, for a meeting between minds, hearts and pulsating bodies.
As a therapist, I’m invited to meet you and to see you with your deep, multidimensional complexity; a complexity of mind-body-spirit that cannot be separated.
Cutting The Edge
This paper addresses the sensitive issue of male circumcision and its psychological ramifications, so seldom mentioned in conversation or addressed in the literature. It explores the emotional significance of circumcision from the standpoint of body psychotherapy. Using a single case study, the author discusses the paradox inherent in circumcision which, on the one hand, claims to be an act of devotion and surrender, but, on the other, implants mistrust in the newborn baby. Finally, the author examines the implications of a lack of dialogue about circumcision and considers how therapists might deal with the issue in their work.
