...HMW says so.
Besides, I keep bracing myself, waiting for someone to post something along the lines of, "A.S. Neill and Reich molested students at Summerhill." (Although, not much would surprise me anymore.)
I like where Erosoplier said, there must have been some "...advantages to growing up in a family that can't afford therapist bills..."
lol, agreed. I think we may have dodged a bullet there.
Anyway, I would be interested in discussing the body/mind therapies that may have been inspired by Reich, not only the ones mentioned in the article above (bio-energetics, primal screaming, etc) but, also rolfing, feldenkrais and other popular techniques.
Hellerwork is a form of deep-tissue therapy on the new-age market fast track that embraces Reich's work. I went to the website of Joseph Heller, so I would be able to tell you more about it. Well, only you guys could appreciate what I read there:
"Joseph Heller was born in Poland in 1940 and received his early education in Europe...In 1962 he graduated from Cal Tech, and spent ten years as an aerospace engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
in Pasadena, Calif, where he gained extensive experience of structural stress." [I bet.]
"Heller became involved with humanistic psychology and eventually left engineering. He became the director of Kairos, a Los Angeles center for human development, and participated in year-long training programs in bioenergetics and gestalt, as well as shorter workshops with Buckmister Fuller, John Lilly, and Viginia Satir. He became a Rolfer in 1972 and continued to study through 1978 with Ida Rolf, the originator of structural integration..."
There is an interesting bit in Levenda's "Sinister Forces" about the Eslan Institute I would like to bring up here also, but maybe you all have already "been there, done that"...idk.
Anyway...permission to hijack your thread, Sir.
Or should I start my own?
