Why an American Body Psychotherapist Preferred Europe is an insightful look at the connections between intimate relationships, personal growth, and professional development.
From the Author: Writing this book amounted to a vast liberation from my family roots and wasp patterns of social behavior. I freed myself from any kind of obligation to them from the age of fifteen onwards and I was able thereafter to live a solitary life style as if I never had grown up in any particular family. I held them all in such low respect thereafter that it became a pleasure to depict them all as inconsequential beings who had no influence over me whatsoever. It required another fifteen years of living to recognize the high price I had paid interiorly for having shut my family of birth out of my life. This book describes my pain at realizing I could never shut them out. I had to reconcile them both with who I really was as a unique person. I had to recognize how they had tried to make my life during my adolescence agreeable by paying for my singing lessons with three different local teachers of voice and my piano lessons over a period of nine years and half of my tuition fees for being in an well run episcopal boy's summer camp called Camp O-At-Ka on Lake Sebago, Maine. My intimate relationships with women my own age then had to be faced for the failure that they all were because I could not open my awareness to who they really were when I projected my mother onto all of them more or less.
