Giving oneself to body and to life


  • Ana Lúcia Faria



giving oneself, body, life, Bioenergetics


This text contemplates both my own personal issues and a theorization about giving oneself to body and to life, while taking Bioenergetic Analysis as the main reference. The issue around giving oneself, that is, of giving to one’s self and to life is fundamental in the work of Alexander Lowen; I also consider this topic to be a determining factor, since it has traversed and given sense to my life at both the personal and professional levels.
