The Babel tower of the body
Body language in holistic therapeutic dialogue
This article follows the idea that our body offers a unique language to read our personal history; our physical body remembers everything and is ready to tell all. We just have to learn the language it speaks. The purpose of this article is to examine how body language allows us to read the presence of conflicts between the body, mind and emotions and resolve them. In this article, I will deal with the following questions: What is the significance of the signs that the brain has imprinted on the surface of the body? Why does our body preserve these signs? What is the body’s role in communicating between people and within themselves?
Keywords: Dialogue, Conflict, Balance, Brain, Map, Repression, Pain Networks, Signs
