Post release

That's great - thanks for the links! I can think of a few other body-focused therapies which also look for the same outcome - the release of the deep stress. When some come to mind I'll post them here. So interesting that the adrenally charged world often doesn't even KNOW that these treatments are available -I imagine that these therapies help people as does the B.C.I., although they seem to require more involvement by a facilitator than does B.C.I.. Nevertheless some of these therapies may bring on a deeper (read: physical) understanding, leading to the possibility of getting in touch with the lost 'feeling' level of life again.

This new thread seems to go very well with the thread under the title "UFO'S AND RADIOACTIVITY" regarding 'Fear and/or Acceptance'....

here is chapter #1


immobility or freezing response = playing possum

Also I associate medical reports of heart failure/death due to shock/grief,for example:

A 70-year-old woman with no past cardiac history was admitted for near collapse and chest discomfort that occurred when she was informed that her husband of 45 years had died in our hospital of congestive heart failure and refractory ventricular arrhythmias. The ECG revealed minor anterior ST-segment elevations and inferolateral ST-segment depressions, which resolved after intravenous nitroglycerin was administered. Cardiac enzymes were minimally but definitely elevated.

The patient underwent cardiac catheterization, which revealed normal coronary arteries. The left ventriculogram showed anterolateral akinesis and apical hypokinesis, as depicted in Figure 1. The patient was discharged on aspirin and amlodipine. An echocardiogram repeated 3 months later was normal. She has no memory of the entire hospitalization but continues to grieve for her husband.

How did you come across this somatic experiencing subject/Waking the Tiger?

I am still on some sort of listsev for the old Jung page. Someone posted there saying they did somatic experiencing/studied with Levine.

I did a search on somatic experiencing and levine on google and I got the hit on the book "Waking the Tiger"

Why a Tiger instead of a snake (kundalini) ?

Here is another broken heart abstract:
broken heart syndrome or Takotsubo cardiomyopathy

Title Transient left ventricular apical ballooning after cocaine use: is catecholamine cardiotoxicity the pathologic link?.

Source Mayo Clinic Proceedings. 81(6):829-32, 2006 Jun.

NLM Journal Name Mayo Clinic proceedings. Mayo Clinic.

Abstract We describe a patient who developed acute chest pain after using cocaine and had ST-segment elevation in the anterior leads on electrocardiography with mild elevation of cardiac enzymes. Cardiac catheterization showed normal coronary arteries with no coronary vasospasm. Left ventricular angiography revealed typical ballooning of the left ventricular apex during systole with an estimated left ventricular ejection fraction of 25%. The symptoms improved during the next few hours, and follow-up echocardiography 4 days later showed complete resolution of the left ventricular dysfunction. Transient left ventricular apical ballooning (LVAB) was diagnosed. To our knowledge, LVAB (also known as Takotsubo cardiomyopathy or "broken heart syndrome") has not been reported previously in association with cocaine use. We discuss the possible pathophysiologic link between LVAB and cocaine-induced cardiotoxicity.
