Product Details


“As a trained philosopher, Rolfing instructor, and Zen monk, Dr. Maitland travels far in this book—from the breadth and depth of philosophy’s elegant language and arguments to down-to-earth plain-speak that often surprised me with words that quickly turned complexity into what is simple and relevant.”
—from the Foreword by Judith S. Freilich, MD

“Jeffrey Maitland has explored the pivotal fusion of mind, body, and planet, as he provides keys to the underlying meaning and context of somatic therapy. Beyond concrete mind and body are subtle mind and subtle body, and that’s where Maitland lands in his work.” —Richard Grossinger, author of Planet Medicine and Dark Pool of Light

“In this important new book, Jeffrey Maitland discloses the fallacies behind such perennial conundrums as metaphysical dualism and the mind-body problem. Engaging the metaphor of ‘homecoming,’ Maitland reveals the transformational potential to be realized in transcending the false dichotomy between consciousness and somatic experience.”
 —William Dabars, PhD, associate research professor, School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies, Arizona State University, and coauthor of Designing the New American University

“This book provides a guide to skilled perception for manual therapists. It is not so much a ‘how to’ training manual, but is a more philosophically based ‘why to,’ from symptom to self discovery.”
—Thomas W. Findley MD/PhD, professor in Physical Medicine at New Jersey Medical School and physician at VA Medical Center, East Orange, New Jersey
