Centered and Connected presents body-based techniques that integrate practices of self-reflection and non-judgmental awareness in order to foster healing, build self-esteem, and develop a stronger connection to one’s body. Author Rytz explores the disconnection between the mind and body, which can create alienation, lack of self-acceptance, and more serious emotional problems. Some of the body areas explored include the head, heart, hands, feet, stomach, and pelvis, as well as body-related phenomena such as the breath, gravity, and the voice. Each topic is followed by four simple and enjoyable activities meant to improve the body-mind relationship. There are 128 activities in all. More than 250 photographs and illustrations help readers visualize and utilize the exercises described.

Centered and Connected: A Therapeutic Approach to Mind-Body Awareness 2011-06-03 01:34:07 Lamisha Serf
In Centered and Connected, author and therapist Thea Rytz provides an easy-to-understand overview of sensory awareness and outlines specific exercises for practicing being more aware and in tune with our bodies. While most of us have probably felt less than satisfied with our bodies at some point in our lives, many people struggle with this dissatisfaction on a daily basis, sometimes to the degree that it creates physical and psychological issues. Rytz assists her clients not only to accept the body they’ve been given but to experience it through “body awareness therapy,” drawing from her considerable knowledge and experience with clients struggling with eating disorders, depression, stress, and many other related ailments.
