DESCRIPTION

Your body has a natural sense of truth. We can feel authenticity in ourselves and in others. However, this innate wisdom is obscured by our conditioning—the core limiting beliefs, reactive feelings, and somatic contractions that fuel our sense of struggle and veil who we really are.

In Touch is a groundbreaking, experiential guide to the felt-sense of our “inner knowing”—the deep intelligence available through our bodies. Each chapter presents moving stories, helpful insights from spirituality, psychology, and science, and simple yet potent experiments for integrating the gifts of inner knowing into every aspect of daily life. Join pioneering psychotherapist and teacher Dr. John J. Prendergast to explore:

• The phenomenon of “attunement”—how we accurately sense and resonate with ourselves and others—including an introduction to attachment theory, mirror neurons, and interoception (the ability to sense into the interior of your body)

• Felt-sensing and the subtle body—our ability to have a whole-body sense of reality and how the seven major energy centers relate to common psychospiritual issues

• “Shadows as portals”—how our dark and painful feelings and sensations can point us toward an essential radiance within

• The art of identifying and undoing our core limiting beliefs

• The four somatic qualities of inner knowing—relaxed groundedness, inner alignment, open-heartedness, and spaciousness—and how these subtle signals, once recognized, can guide our choices and help us to navigate life’s challenges

• The fruits of inner knowing—the realization of who we are in our depths and the great intimacy with life we can all enjoy

“As we tune into our deepest nature, our body relaxes, grounds, lines up, opens up, and lights up,” writes Prendergast. “So far this extraordinarily useful subtle feedback has been largely overlooked; almost nothing has been written about it. We need to both sense and decode these signals if we are to benefit from them. These bodily markers are here to be seen and used as guides to enable us to more gracefully navigate life and to awaken. They are part of our birthright, available to anyone.”

Here is his invitation to start listening in a profound new way, deeply in touch with reality and our shared journey of awakening.

Same Old Song

Not a lot of new here. I think there is not much new here. The author seems to reduce awareness to physical rather than the other way around.

Timeless

Grateful for the opportunity to connect/reflect/meditate on most of my morning commute. Every word/experiment/experience shared by John resonated with me and my life journey. The book title "In Touch" made me a bit uncomfortable when Rick Hanson recommended it on his weekly email JOT. I didn't know what to expect or where this book would take me. But my inner knowing guided me to trust and open to a new experience of self. Truth is, I do not want to finish the last chapter, and this is a book I will cherish and revisit. I felt connected, safe, and trusted encountering JP in this honest and timeless journey. Like someone else shared in a review:

"John is the most gifted and humble psychotherapist I know.

His heart and presence match his infinite wisdom!"

Thank You, John.

Re-enlisting the body

“In Touch” has had a powerful impact on my sense of where I am on my spiritual path and how to proceed. In particular, it has helped me to open to present awareness at any moment by making somatic contact with my body. John identifies for the first time a set of “somatic markers of inner knowing,” specifically; a relaxed groundedness, inner-alignment, openheartedness and spaciousness.

Each of these experiences has become very familiar to me over years of practice, but I had never focused on them as practices in themselves. Doing so has had a powerful impact on my ability to use my body to make contact with the moment, and with awareness itself. The experience, for me, is one of falling out of my mentally constructed world and into a sweet and open presence. I feel a deep gratitude to John for his work here and I recommend the book to anyone who is on a spiritual path to inner knowing.

Great read!

In Touch addresses the process of tuning into your inner guidance and learning to trust and move from it in a fresh, clear, grounded way. It's challenging to approach something so relative and subtle as 'discovering your truth,' let alone learning how to tune in to your body, and sift through the plethora of information it gives us. John Prendergast walks you through this process in a holistic way - from the science of attunement and attachment systems to sensing the subtle body, and more. I especially enjoyed the last half where he describes the four markers of being in touch with your inner guidance. They resonated with me as trustworthy and true to my experience. He makes something that could easily slip into the realm of abject relativity and unclarity (finding, and then acting from, your truth) seem very doable, solid, and reliable. Highly recommend!
