The Body and Emotions

The following video is an interview with Raja Selvam, one of my teachers, who teaches a program on Integral Somatic Psychology.

In this interview, he talks about how traditional psychology has focused on the brain as the source of emotions and uses talk therapy as a result of this belief. He makes an argument for shifting the focus from the brain to also include the role of the body in generating emotions.

The video is 50 minutes long. But start at the 3:30 mark to get into the discussion.
