The Thompson Method of Bodywork

The Thompson Method of Bodywork

Cathy Thompson, Tara Thompson Lewis, The Thompson Method of Bodywork: Structural Alignment, Core Strength, and Emotional Release
English | ISBN: 1620556642 | 2018 | EPUB | 336 pages | 26,4 MB
An illustrated manual for using physical movement and alignment to resolve chronic pain and tension and work with the emotions
Includes 90 exercises to work with emotions through the body and support the neck, shoulders, lower back, feet, and overall posture as well as breathing and voice
Explains how to listen to the body’s signals to discover our physical and emotional blindspots–the weaknesses and misalignments at the root of our discomfort
Draws on Zen shiatsu, Rolfing, yoga, and Gestalt psychotherapy to explain how transformation of physical structure corrects imbalances in the unconscious mind
Developed by Cathy Thompson through her many years as a bodywork therapist, the Thompson Method incorporates Zen shiatsu, Rolfing, yoga, and Gestalt psychotherapy to heal pain in the physical body both through bodywork and by recognizing the emotional blockages that often underlie chronic pain, tension, and poor alignment. In this practical manual, Thompson and her protg-daughter Tara Thompson Lewis provide a deep understanding of body mechanics and how to work with emotions through the body. They explore how to listen to the body’s signals to discover our physical and emotional blindspots–the weaknesses and misalignments at the root of our discomfort–and explain how transformation of your physical structure can correct imbalances in the unconscious mind caused by repressed memories and emotional traumas.
Offering illustrated instructions for 90 corrective alignment exercises, the authors show how to release body tensions, realign the body’s dynamic structure, work with the deep postural muscles, and support the neck, shoulders, lower back, and feet to strengthen the emotional and physical body as well as improve singing, dancing, yoga, and posture while sitting at the computer. They also explore breathing and bodywork practices to release the vocal mechanism and free the voice for more fluid and powerful self-expression.
By recognizing and releasing the deeper emotional triggers beneath our physical complaints, the Thompson Method allows you to resolve chronic pains, increase body awareness and free movement, and create the foundation for good health and well-being.

The Palgrave Handbook of Decentralisation in Europe [Repost]

The Palgrave Handbook of Decentralisation in Europe by Jose Ruano
English | 17 Dec. 2016 | ISBN: 3319324365 | 534 Pages | PDF | 9.55 MB
This handbook provides an authoritative study of European decentralisation, taking into account, from a territorial perspective, the different political and administrative traditions in Europe (Continental, Anglo-Saxon and Ex-communist States) and the cleavages North-South and East-West. While in recent decades most European countries have implemented devolution policies trying to tackle different political, social or bureaucratic problems, some others have instead regionalised their territory, applied federal or pseudo-federal reforms and strengthened the role of subnational governments. This volume analyses decentralisation in these countries using different variables including history, territorial organisation, civil service and financing, and reveals how this phenomenon leads to complex intergovernmental linkages. The evolution of territorial decentralisation, the political tensions between centre and periphery, the autonomy of the subnational governments and their functions and competences, the tools of co-ordination and co-operation, and the features and role of civil service are the main issues studied here with an interdisciplinary approach.

The Making of Anti-Muslim Protest ~ Grassroots Activism in the English Defence League

The Making of Anti-Muslim Protest: Grassroots Activism in the English Defence League

Joel Busher, The Making of Anti-Muslim Protest: Grassroots Activism in the English Defence League
English | ISBN: 0415502675 | 2015 | 196 pages | PDF conv | 2 MB
Activism in any social movement group is, as Deborah Gould observes, a project of collective world-making’. It is about changing the world out there by influencing policy and public opinion, but is also about the way it transforms the lives of participants activists generate new identities, cultures, social ties, rich and varied emotional experiences and interpretations of the world around them. Movements are more likely to be able to attract and sustain support when as projects of collective world-making they feel compelling to activists and would-be activists.
In this book Busher explores what has made activism in the English Defence League (EDL), an anti-Muslim protest movement that has staged demonstrations across the UK since 2009, so compelling to those who have chosen to march under its banner. Based on sixteen months of overt observation with grassroots activists, he explores how people became involved with the group; how they forged and intensified belief in the EDL cause; how they negotiated accusations that they were just another racist, far right group; and how grassroots EDL activism began to unravel during the course of 2011 but did not do so altogether. Providing a fresh insight as to how contemporary anti-minority protest movements work on the inside, this book will be of interest to students, scholars and activists working in the areas of British politics, extremism, social movements, community relations and current affairs more generally.
