I watched her write it. Observed the the early mornings and late nights she spent pouring over notes and research, and writing, and later giving careful consideration to feedback from trusted colleagues and friends.
Suzanne does not do anything half-way. I watched her pour her being into this, her second book, to make it as full and accessible as it can be to as many people as possible, so that these concepts and practices can help as many of us as possible to get a leg up (pun intended!) on reconnecting to the quiet wisdom of our own bodies -- a native instinct that we've collectively droned out and taught ourselves to ignore on a cultural level, to the point where most of us aren't even aware these powerfully wise resources within us are even there.
This woman practices what she preaches. She writes from her own grounded, full body presence, and the result is a down-to-earth style that speaks directly to us and meets us where we are. The stories she offers are real and relatable. Her clear, thoughtful descriptions of the practical exercises of this book -- known as Explorations -- are simple enough for those new to her work to begin and see immediate results, and deep enough for her most dedicated students to sink their teeth into.
These are not fly-by-not practices, but ones that she had made a part of her daily life, connecting with her own fully body presence during quiet moments and leading others into theirs, multiple times a day.
How do I know this? I see it. I see it every time she stops to take a long, slow and deep breath between calls, meetings and appointments. I see it when I walk in early on Monday mornings -- her personal time, her slow time, much of it she spent writing -- as she looks out over the lake, her back straight and face relaxed, fueling her being from the resources around her. I see it when she leads clients and good friends into their being, and that same day leads groups of students, or halls full of people. This is her life, absolutely everyday.
It's why I love working for her. And ultimately, it's why I highly recommend her work, particularly this new book. Suzanne knows something instinctive to us all that we've conveniently culturally forgotten. She's made it who-she-is, what-she-does, and her life is about showing it to others. Everyday, all day, this is her mission: Awakening everyone to their natural inheritance, their full body presence within.
This mission is at the core of Reclaiming Your Body. If it speaks to you, check out what Suzanne has to say. See if this work is right for you. It's one of the best decisions I ever made.
Personally, I have long believed the body can communicate a ton of valuable information to us — as long as we’re in a position to hear it.
What I didn’t understand was how different parts of the body actually send us different kinds of messages. And when you fully understand the specialization of each of these “wisdom areas,” you can get a depth of information I never knew was possible.
I also love the explorations the author guides us through to get to a state of full-body presence. I can tell you, from having worked with the author’s processes in the past, this alone is life-changing. When I get into this state, I’m literally able to perceive things I never could before. It feels grounding and nourishing and powerful. And I LOVE the warm and moving stories that bring the concepts to life in the book.
If you've suffered any kind of trauma — or help clients who have — I highly recommend this book. It's a gold mine.
In RECLAIMING YOUR BODY she gives us examples of individuals who were putting themselves last and how she was able to help them correct the path they were on and start living a more enjoyable life. This book has many layers for me, and one of the most important ones is to realize how what we carry can affect us. Suzanne reminds us that we have to be willing to recognize the things around us that might be causing us harm and then to take the steps necessary to change. That will probably be the most difficult thing for some as we are used to just going on and not carrying so much about ourselves until it's too late.
If you are willing to do the work and recognize the trouble areas for yourself this book can definitely help you to heal and and live a happier, healthier life.
I use Suzanne's work daily, both for myself and with my clients. This is a book I highly recommend.
