Body of Knowledge: An Introduction to Body/Mind Psychology

Marrone, Robert

 Psychologist Marrone’s premise is that one cannot fully connect with other people and the environment until one can consciously experience the lived body. Oneness of mind-body results in oneness with the world. He points to the need for a shift in consciousness that involves a "change of heart, a revisioning of the very ground-of-meaning upon which each of us establishes our sense of self" (p. 8). He explores the theoretical underpinnings and historical roots of the emerging Body/Mind psychology. Next he develops a holographic view of "body/mind" and perhaps, the human spirit as well" (p. 62). In this model "each and every part embodies and contains the whole" (p. 62). He then reviews ways in which this body/mind holistic paradigm is being applied in psychotherapy and in clinical research, with case profiles and session notes taken from a broad range of counselors and therapists whose aim is to bring "the individual’s awareness to the experience of lived-body" (p. 119).
