Emotional Anatomy DVD

Keleman, Stanley

Personal Growth
Emotional Anatomy DVD In this DVD Stanley Keleman presents an animated update to his seminal book Emotional Anatomy which after 30 years continues to be a foundational text in the field of body oriented psychology and body based therapeutic methods. In his unique style, Keleman has created a kinetic visualization of the story of our life as a pulsatory process. By gathering images and - in an original way - giving them motion, he illustrates behaviors of the human organism that do not yet have a common cultural language. His biologically based Formative Psychology and its language seek to give a foundation for understanding a next step in the evolution of human development which is the voluntary shaping of our lives.

This update presents the human being as a pulsatory continuum of biological shapes and emotional behaviors which, through the interaction of voluntary and involuntary anatomical processes, organize our body shapes, and illustrates how body shape, in turn, profoundly influences our emotions, feelings and actions.The video is not only an educational experience that includes recent developments in Keleman's thinking, it is also a statement of a body philosophy and a credo for living. As a pioneer in the field of Somatics, Keleman is posing the question, as well as, offering a practical method for answering: "How do I want to organize an embodied life and form my future?"

Emotional Anatomy is a pioneering accomplishment, conceptually and practically, to make visible the pulsatory and formative process of behavior, including thinking and feeling. For those who know Keleman’s work it is a tool to deepen one’s understanding of personal experience. For those who are new to his teachings the video can be a creative start to a different learning experience. It contains many elements of art, for instance, the overlaying of image upon image in combination with an original music score create an intense rhythm and pulse that is intended to convey a felt gestalt of our own body and of the morphology of our anatomy. The viewer will almost certainly be stunned by the power of the pictures in combination with the music. For more understanding of the clinical background of the video, the accompanying study of Stanley Keleman’s books Emotional Anatomy and Embodying Experience is recommended.
