Introduction
As a clinician working with DFA Somatic Pattern Recognition, my research focuses on the way experience shapes the body, in particular during preverbal and pre- and perinatal development. This includes the effects of emotionally charged contents in progenitors' psyches and/or the family field in general (family secrets and denial of guilt). By sharing my results I hope to find scientists of different disciplines who research the mechanisms by which these processes seem to take place. Many thanks

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Clinical observation, backed up by subject feedback and literature research, suggests that myofascial hypertonicity reduces oxygen in hydration water at a greater rate than can be replenished, even with adequate water intake. The excess of involuntary tension seems to be literally burning oxygen through an increase in charge gradient, rendering hyd...

Water hydrating the tissues of our bodies is exquisitely sensitive and responsive to the orientation of our attention. Most adults habitually function in an incisive mode that overrides perception of sensory information about their relationship to their inner and outer environment. An instantaneous shift in tissue responsiveness involving the whole...

An incipient understanding of the interaction between myofascial tone and water has proven to be helpful in restoring the flow of sensations that allow recognition of the somatic patterns that interfere with sensory awareness. It has also been helpful in introducing new information into the system. A fuller understanding would help to protect healt...

Ever since I learnt to work with belief systems in the shape of the body during my training as a DFA (Duggan/French Approach) practitioner, I had wanted to understand how beliefs arise from experience and literally shape our bodies. First of all I looked at the interactive events taking place in the nervous system that lead to selective coordinatio...

In the Body Water Reflects Not Only What Is But Also What Was Clear perception of sensory experience reflected in coherent water allows higher order consciousness to recognize these patterns and develop a meaningful relationship with the dragon. Sensory neurons are by far more numerous than the motor neurons which hold behavior captive in unconscio...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper I would like to present Dr. Conforti’s archetypal field theory, without going into his background in Jungian and Langsian psychoanalysis, through discussion of some concepts emerging from the new sciences he acknowledges. I will comment to some extent on the work of biochemist Mae Wan Ho, her concept of coherence, and the importance o...

In this paper I would like to present my understanding of how the Duggan/French Approach (DFA) to Somatic Pattern Recognition fits into the family of Structural Integration and of the aspects that make DFA work different from the original SI as developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf. I will try to describe our intervention, called shake-and-bake 1 by some St...

Question
Some years ago I saw a videoclip of an astrocyte laying down a pathway along which a dentrite or axon was growing. I have not been able to find it. The person in whose presentation I saw it gave me all the links he had, but that one was not among them. Has anybody seen it an can give me link?

Project
Habitual holding patterns keep muscles and fasciae in conflict with the gravitational pull. They create an illusion of separateness, as if it was possible that human beings could exist outside of nature, leading to numerous disorders, both of the body and the mind, in individuals as well as the collective. This project aims at creating tools to educate as wide a public as possible about how to allow the natural movements of breathing as a means to be able - to perceive the mostly unconscious patterns that restrict these motions - to release part of the holding - to manage the flow of sensations these patterns hold at bay - to understand the meaning of sensory information conveyed by these sensations - to distinguish the meanings that require action from those that belong to the past or have been adopted from other people
