I believe the best therapy is holistic therapy that is feeling-heavy and thinking-light. As I (and other primal and primal-related clinicians) see it, people become false lives in their heads. This is because we had to give up our child life, our “blueprint,” when we were hurt or otherwise directed away from it. We become blinkered People of Thought, seeing ourselves and the world high above the quicksand in which we’re rooted, so out of touch with our birthright and essence that we may as well be someone kidnapped early and thrown in a prison tower for the rest of his days.
The moment I completed the reading, my client fell into the longest and deepest bawling that the thin walls of my mental health center could abide. Afterwards, a surprised person, she felt different. And better.
