The Atlas of Mind, Body and Spirit by Paul HoughamThis beautifully illustrated, holistic view of human anatomy makes graphically clear how consciousness and spirit are manifested and revealed in the physiology of the body. The in-depth coverage is both accessible and authoritative. In large full-color diagrams and photographs, we see how organs, nerves, bones, and muscles connect with the meridian lines and chakras used in ancient therapies, and come to understand how the principles of alternative medicine relate to the discoveries of science. By gathering together for the first time the wisdom of acupuncture, yoga, kabbalah, and shamanism with the practices of conventional medicine, osteopathy, and the Alexander Technique, the atlas gives a vivid overall picture of everything we know today about the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit.

Wisdom of the Body Moving by Linda HartleyThis comprehensive guide introduces Body-Mind Centering, the internationally recognized field pioneered by dancer and occupational therapist Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. Devoting thirty-five years to a systematic investigation of the relations between bodily experience and the anatomical maps of science, Bainbridge Cohen independently discovered many of the principles that underlie Feldenkrais work, cranial osteopathy, Rolfing, dance therapy, and Zero Balancing. Experienced BMC practitioner Linda Hartley demonstrates the basic philosophy and key elements of Body-Mind Centering. Drawing on animal and infant movements, she takes readers through the wondrous realms of Bainbridge Cohen’s pantheon—from the 'minds' of the skeletal and muscular systems to the quite different inner lives of digestive, lymphatic, urinary, respiratory, vocal, circulatory, endocrine, and reproductive organs. Her choreography ultimately brings us into the states of consciousness of skins, cells, blood, fat, cerebrospinal fluid, nervous system, and brain. Hartley’s explorations of the images, feelings, sensations, and intuitions of the diverse organs and cells lead to exercises that gently guide students in ways of discovering and integrating their bodies’ multidimensional aspects.

The Future of Post-Human Health Care by Peter BaofuThis title offers an better way to understand the future of health care, especially in the dialectic relationships between mental health and physical health in the context of mind and body - while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favouring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other).

When the Body Displaces the Mind by Jean StoraCan the mind really generate a physical disease? Conversely, can the body cause mental illness? What do we know today about their interaction? The relations between body and mind are the source of many problems that are currently treated separately by psychoanalysts and doctors because of the compartmentalisation between their disciplines. Despite differences in clinical practice, we all stand to benefit from a common understanding of the reciprocal influences of the mind and the body and the ways in which these are interrelated. It is time to stop treating the body in isolation from treatment of the mind and to understand that where the psychic apparatus fails in its key task of managing the excitations generated by the tensions and frustrations of everyday life, it is the body that takes over. With a wealth of clinical examples, the author proposes an innovative theoretical and clinical approach that seeks to break down the barriers between biology and psychoanalysis; he also demonstrates its benefits for the health and recovery of patients and its implications for disease prevention.
