John Prendergast Ph.D: The Profound Wisdom Of The Body – 010
By David Newell
Beyond what we can understand with our rational minds, our bodies have an innate, natural sense of wisdom and truth. We can deeply feel authenticity in ourselves and in others and as we slowly learn to trust this bodily wisdom we settle deeply and peacefully into ourselves. This innate wisdom though is most often obscured by our conditioning, in particular the core limiting beliefs we hold, our reactive feelings and our somatic contractions that fuel our sense of struggle and veil who we really are. That’s where John Prendergast Ph.D., one of the foremost experts in somatic healing and psychotherapy, has bridged the latest findings in science and psychology with spirituality to present an enriched compass of our inner senses. In his book, In Touch, John peers deeply into this deeper dimension of wisdom that we all have access to. He speaks about the need to first pull back from excessive thinking and look to tune into ‘resonance’ as the launching point into this felt-sense of our lives. At the heart of his work is the message that our body is an exquisitely sensitive feeling instrument and as we learn to tune into its subtle signals, the gifts of greater clarity, healing and inner knowing await for us.
