In a healthy body, movement, feeling, and thinking are integrated in grace and harmony. This book includes bodypsychotherapy techniques and exercises aimed at alleviating muscular tension and restoring the body’s natural grace. This spiritual grace involves a sense of connectedness to a higher order. In this state of grace we feel a kinship with all living creatures, and recognize our connection to our environment and to the world.
