Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0710211457, Paperback)

Lifestreams is an introduction to biosynthesis, a method of somatic - i.e. body-oriented - psychology. Using principles derived from prenatal development and from the biopsychiatric work of Wilhelm Reich, David Boadella unfolds a 'psychic embryology'. He describes how ways to deepen the therapist's work with stress and emotional problems can be found-beginning with life in the womb, and crucial drama of birth, as primordial shaping events to our psyche and soma. These ways include the importance of correct breathing, the use of techniques involving eye contact, voice and language, and methods for re-toning muscles and 'grounding' posture. A final section looks at the areas of existence and death from the perspective of somatic psychology.
