9780140040333: Pleasure: A Creative Approach to Life

Psychiatrist Dr. Alexander Lowen states, "Pleasure is the only force strong enough to oppose the potential destructiveness of power. Many people believe that this role belongs to love. But if love is more than a word, it must rest on the experience of pleasure. In this book I show how the experience of pleasure or pain determines our emotions, our thinking, and our behavior. I discuss the psychology and the biology of pleasure and explore its roots in the body, in nature, and the universe. Through the use of Bioenergetic Analysis and its tension releasing exercises, we can regain our body's capacity for feeling joy and creativity."

Product Description:

With pleasure, life is a creative adventure; without pleasure, it is a struggle for survival. For most adults the struggle for power competes with the striving for pleasure, undermines creativity, and causes muscular tensions. Dr. Alexander Lowen offers a way out of this dilemma. Defining pleasure as a bodily experience - "there is no such thing as pure mental pleasure" - he offers a series of bioenergetic exercises, each outlined in easy-to-follow detail, which can help your body regain its natural freedom and spontaneity. The result is a release of both pleasure and a joyous creativity.
