Example text

Biodynamic psychotherapy was developed by the Norwegian psychotherapist and physiotherapist Gerda Boyesen. She was inspired by Wilhelm Reich, the psychoanalyst who became notorious in the 1930s for his use of the “orgone accumulator”—a box in which a patient would sit in order to absorb cosmic energy. Even before the invention of the “sex box”, Reich was viewed with some suspicion due to the fact that he touched his patients, who would take sessions in their underwear, and, if things went well, experience “orgasm reflex”.

The general drift of this type of therapy is to get the person somehow back in synch with themselves and to give them the sense that all their parts fit together. If they are falling back on strange coping mechanisms developed in childhood, while at the same time holding down a job with huge responsibilities, there might be the idea that they need to catch up with themselves a bit. By gaining some insight into their unsettling behaviours, they could gradually give them up and start acting more in keeping with the healthier parts of themselves.

Maslow concluded that peak experiences were very good for people and were generally to be encouraged. Unfortunately, the most reliable means of bringing them about is by taking ecstasy, LSD, or magic mushrooms, and not everyone’s that way inclined. But if you just happen to have such an experience and are undergoing psychosynthesis, then your therapist will no doubt be very pleased for you. Psychosynthesis is clearly an exciting option for people with an interest in cosmic balance. It’s a very openminded, open-ended approach that really lets people develop in their own idiosyncratic way.
