9780025758711: Spirituality of the Body: Bioenergetics for Grace and Harmony
From Library Journal:

Lamenting the split between mind and body that has scarred Western spiritual life, psychoanalyst Lowen claims that spiritual and physical healing happens in a state of grace, when the ego and the body are harmoniously reunited. Lowen argues that repressed emotions cause muscular tension, more often than not stretching this argument too far. For example, nearsightedness is presented as an emotional rather than a physical condition: "When feeling is expressed through the eyes, vision always improves." Broad generalizations abound, conclusions are drawn on slim evidence, and much of the content is a rehash of Lowen's Bioenergetics . The latter chapters dealing with love, faith, and graciousness are refreshing and insightful, but as a whole this work is recommended only for the most ardent adherents of alternative healing.
