People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.Joseph Campbell
Functional Analysis is the meeting place between psyche and soma. The body and mind always work together – in both health and in illness.
Through focusing words, we guide the cognition to a deeper consciousness to enter into a clear experience of one's self. We then use this self to self relationship as the basis upon which to build all our other relationships.
Somatically, we do the same. By gentle touch, we mobilize the bio-energetic properties of the connective tissue bringing the person deep within to meet himself, his essential self, and then, with this secure knowledge, he can move safely out to the world again.
In Functional Analysis, through both touch and words, we contact and explore that profound center in each of us where all our emotions, thoughts, movements and dreams flow together and from which all our life experiences spring.
