space), protruding breastbones (pushing
yourself forward in life), tense jaws, braced
knees and weak lower backs indicating a
lack of self nurturing and self support.
Social and parental influences show up
in control issues and the many ways in
which we seek to get recognition, love and
acceptance. We may put our hearts out
for others, stick our necks out to get what
we want, or dig our heels in and refuse to
Hermann spends time with each of us
and sheds light on some of our patterns.
To some extent, we have all been bent
out of shape by our thoughts -- the body
never lies -- and as we come face to face
with ourselves, the truth is somewhat
confronting. Standing against the
plumbline, I am an impressive 80 per cent
out of my body -- and we are not talking
the bliss of a light filled trance. I am,
however, in good company; this is very
much the headfirst, mind-first shape so
prevalent across both the developed and,
increasingly, the developing world. No
wonder it hurts!
At this point, Hermann tells us the
amazing story of Canadian John Morgan.
Born with McCune-Albright Syndrome,
a bone disease that deforms the body,
John's bone structure in his skull and upper
chest grew to such an extent that by the
age of eight it had destroyed his optic
nerves and damaged the muscles around
his eyeballs, rendering him blind.
Interestingly, John did not inherit
his disease genetically, but as Hermann
explains it, John's soul journey and past
life experiences are manifested in physical
form by his top heavy shape: he has an
enlarged brain, small pelvis, narrow legs
and twisted feet. John, now 28, grew
up with such strong determination to
overcome his disability that the focus of
mental effort enhanced the distortion in
Working with Hermann and his
students as a study body two years ago,
John experienced an extraordinary
transformation. At the start of the day,
he was slumped in his wheelchair, his
eyes dull and his breathing shallow. By the
end of the day, breathing deeply into his
chest area and, for the first time, through
his nose, he came to understand and
acknowledge his special purpose in life
and to communicate his experience to
"We are blessed and honoured to
have worked with John," says Hermann
with great gratitude and respect. "He is a
master teacher and a living example to all
of us how an inflexible mind can damage
the flexibility of the body."
Rather than fighting a perceived
imperfection, John has learnt to use his
hands to connect with his heart centre
and feel and sense his body, softening the
mental dominance to reintroduce softness
and create more flesh on his bones.
In psychosomatic therapy, the bones
represent our formation and the flesh
on our bodies how we perform in life.
By extension, the mind and the bones
stand for the male aspect and the flesh,
the creative, life giving feminine aspect.
We need a balance between the two to
nurture not only our own bodies, but also
humanity as a whole.
Hermann draws a parallel with top
heavy business models where those in
power neglect the needs of those in
supporting roles underneath.
