The Third Body: Personalising the space between
"This 'work', to remain aware of the third body, is to me a daily discipline. I see few 'models' in the everyday world of popular culture that help. Rather a continual reification of the individual.
I have been drawn repeatedly to the notion that there is a body that lives in the between. Connected to, and made by, the partners in a relationship, yet more than the sum of their parts.
It is my experience that awareness of this third body makes much more sense of relationship difficulties, whether they be in the consulting room, in individual or couple psychotherapy or outside.
I propose an experiential exploration of this subject. A consideration of what we all might know of 'third bodies' already, out of the corner of our eyes."
We look forward to seeing many of you online,
