The conceptual, thinking mind is a wonderful tool as it can help people to understand the source of their difficulties, to gain new perspectives and to see clearly which habits to let go of and which new habits to develop. If all the therapeutic work is done only on the intellectual level, however, the value of therapy can be diminished. By gradually tuning into the bodily sensations, the clients gain access to a whole range of valuable information that can be described as somatic knowing. Our bodies have their own wisdom and when we start listening to the silent language of sensations (such as the signs of bodily tension or relaxation, or the quality of our breathing), we increase both our insight and our ability to respond authentically. As a therapist, I might invite clients to gradually shift their attention to their bodies, so that they can connect to their own somatic knowing and use the body as a place of comfort and ease of being.
