    Colorado seems to be a hotbed of body-based therapy. Sensorimotor, Hakomi Institute, and the SE Trauma Institute are all within a few miles of one another. Would have loved to hear more about what distinguishes Sensorimotor from Hakomi, and even SE.

    The earlier writers did not build bridges between earlier psychotherapies and Mind/Body because Freud followed Breuer and Janet and then rejected them, and Freud left his mark on everyone, even those who later rejected Freud. Why don’t you have Peter Levine on? His earler writings were rather exotic and vague but his more recent writíngs are very clear. And David’s slip of the tounge was great! Please get Stephen Levine on. He is an expert on Zen, Sufi,and Yogi medataions-that is the old Schools of Mind/Body. I met Stephen at his home in NM. 26 years ago and was amazed at not only his knowlage of tradional Mind/Body practices but, he had actually read Freud, unlike many of the “professionals” one meets today.
