The Alexander Lowen Foundation
The Alexander Lowen Foundation (TALF) aims to advance the contributions of Alexander Lowen, M.D.’s Bioenergetic Analysis into mainstream health-practices and the consciousness of the world.
Bioenergetic Analysis recognizes the ability of the body to heal itself, and promotes that process. It differs from other forms of therapy in that it combines analysis of personality and character with body techniques and physical exercises to recognize and release chronic muscular tension – a necessary step in liberating feelings and changing patterns of behavior. This form of therapy has helped people achieve good health – in body and in mind – for more than half a century, and it continues to be state-of-the-art psychotherapy.
Online Bioenergetic Psychotherapy and Consultation
Therapy sessions integrate body work and exercise with talk and cognitive work, psychology with physiology, and body with mind to enhance therapeutic effectiveness and outcome. Bioenergetic body-psychotherapy is uniquely effective in healing the mind-body split. The mind-body split is a disconnect between what we think and how we feel. It appears to be fundamental to psychological disorder and dysfunction. Online sessions make Bioenergetic and body-psychotherapy available to everyone worldwide and can work surprisingly well for clients and practitioners.
Alexander Lowen, M.D. (1910 – 2008) was a pioneering American psychotherapist and father of Bioenergetic Analysis, an innovative psychotherapeutic modality. It integrates work with the body and the mind to help people get back in touch with their body, resolve their emotional difficulties and conflicts, and live a healthier, more fulfilling life.
Dr. Lowen authored 14 books which reflect his seminal contribution to the development of body psychotherapy. His books, including The Language of the Body, Narcissism, Depression and the Body, The Way to Vibrant Health, Fear of Life, and Joy are translated into a dozen different languages. As relevant and meaningful now as when written, the publication of the Lowen books continues to grow worldwide. To purchase the books visit our online store or any major bookseller.
