This book presents nine lenses through which the body is conventionally viewed. The body as object, the body as subject, the phenomenological body, the contextual body, the interdependent body, the environmental body, the cultural body and, finally, the ecological body. Designed to be a guide and stimulus for teachers, students and practitioners of dance, performance, movement, somatics and the arts therapies - and for anyone troubled by the idea of a brain on legs.

In this compact and accessible book Sandra Reeve invites the reader to engage with 'the body' through nine different lenses. The ensuing thought provoking journey will be of particular value to psychotherapists, arts therapists, and those interested in new ways of being. Anna Chesner: London Centre for Psychodrama This book is a delightful, readable set of beginning points or lenses through which to constantly consider and reconsider embodied practice - I am already looking forward to the second book.
