We're used to recognizing that people have different ideas of what constitutes a nation, an organisation, one's self, etc. But the human body? Surely that's a more solid and tangible thing? In fact, people in different cultures and at different times in history, have held radically different ideas about the body. Understanding these differences is an essential step for anyone trying to understand different approaches to medicine, dance, theatre, psychotherapy, sex and ecology.This book presents nine lenses through which the body is conventionally viewed: The body as object (Descartes' approach, linked to modern, Western individualism and as usually viewed by Western, allopathic medicine); the body as subject (with reference to physical theatre and the work of directors and writers like Peter Brook, Jerzy Grotowski and Eugenio Barba); the phenomenological body (the view that the body holds its own meaning - this is the idea of the 'lived' body as discussed by Husserl and Merleau-Ponty, amongst others); the somatic body (familiar to Feldenkrais, Body-Mind Centering and somatics practitioners); the contextual body (paying attention to self-reflection and self-awareness in the context of the body's surroundings - here are the beginnings of ecopsychology); and, the interdependent body (as reflected by matching, guiding and kinetic mirroring in movement work and by the growing field of kinaesthetic empathy).The environmental body (as discussed by Maturana and Varela's Santiago theory of cognition; this approach looks at incorporated habits and the effect of moving in nature); the cultural body (here there is an awareness of culturally specific, daily-life movement and close links with Csordas' view of embodiment); the ecological body (drawing on Suryodarmo's Amerta Movement, on Buddhist mindfulness and on notions of 'interbeing'. An awareness of being 'among' rather than 'at the centre of'. Dr Sandra Reeve's groundbreaking approach to the ecological body and ecological mo

Product Description:

This book presents nine lenses through which the body is conventionally viewed. The body as object, the body as subject, the phenomenological body, the contextual body, the interdependent body, the environmental body, the cultural body and, finally, the ecological body. Designed to be a guide and stimulus for teachers, students and practitioners of dance, performance, movement, somatics and the arts therapies - and for anyone troubled by the idea of a brain on legs.

Review:

Sandra Reeves' Nine Ways of Seeing a Body is a delightful, readable set of beginning points or lenses through which to constantly consider and reconsider embodied practice. Sandra's perspective is informed both by her years of professional practice as well as her more recent in-depth exploration of how to reflect on her practice. I am already looking forward to the second book.
--Dr Phillip Zarrilli

In this compact and accessible book Sandra Reeve invites the reader to engage with `the body' through nine different lenses. The ensuing thought provoking journey will be of particular value to psychotherapists, arts therapists, and those interested in new ways of being.
--Anna Chesner: London Centre for Psychodrama

This book is a delightful, readable set of beginning points or lenses through which to constantly consider and reconsider embodied practice... I am already looking forward to the second book.
--Phillip Zarrilli: Artistic Director, The Llanarth Group
