  • What Real-Life Case Histories Teach Us About Somatics

    Mary Ann Voorhiessubmitted by Mary Ann Gray Voorhies

    The following was taken from the book Somatics: Reawakening the Mind’s Control of Movement Flexibility and Health by Thomas Hanna:

    1. These problems are functional, not structural

    The problems which on the surface look to be irreparable breakdowns of the body, are instead malfunctions of the nervous system. Viewed externally, they seem to be about bodies that are degenerating; but viewed internally, these are brains that have lost control of their bodily functions. To use my own terms, these are somatic problems — not bodily problems. They are functional problems — not structural problems. These are problems solvable by the patient — not by the doctor. These are problems reflecting loss of control from the inside of the human system — not a deterioration of bodily parts at the outside of the human system.

    2. The functional problems are cases of sensory-motor amnesia.

    People who come to me are suffering from non-medical problems. They are outside the reach of medical help, whose services they have exhausted. They are not suffering from infectious diseases, or physical lesions, or biochemical imbalance. They are suffering from a loss of memory; the memory of what it feels like to move certain muscles of their bodies, and the memory of how to go about moving these same muscles.

    Their memory loss is, to be specific, sensory-motor amnesia (SMA). I know this to be the case simply because their being shows how certain muscle patterns feel, and how these contractions are accomplished, resulting in an end to their problems. They regain their normal functioning and normal bodily wellbeing without any need for antibiotics for infection or surgery for lesions or drugs for biochemical imbalance.

  • The Pursuit of Happiness

    Wake Up, Grow Up, Show Up Series with Lisa Engles and Marc Gafni

    In this sixth installment of our series, Marc talks about joy and happiness as a byproduct of the passionate pursuit of your Unique Self.

    Your Unique Self is your unique plug into the energy of reality, of all that is. By living your Unique Self you plug into the joy and energy that you need to commit your unique acts of Outrageous Love.

  • What Does an Outrageous Lover Do?

    Wake Up, Grow Up, Show Up Series with Lisa Engles and Marc Gafni

    In this fifth installment of our series, Marc elaborates on the outrageous acts of love that the Outrageous Lover commits.

    First of all, it is important to understand that the Outrageous Lover keeps every boundary that should be kept and breaks every boundary that should be broken. The boundaries that need to be broken are the boundaries of our contraction, our smallness, of living our beliefs, the belief that we are irrelevant, that we are an extra on the set.

    The Outrageous Lover commits the outrageous acts of love that are the function of his or her unique perspective and quality of intimacy.

    Evolution awakens in and as me in person. That is another profound shift in identity from Unique Self to Evolutionary Unique Self.

    As Evolutionary Unique Self I am enlivened by all that is. This allows me to live a life of joy – the joy of purpose, of delight, and of being needed – which is unlike any other life.
