“BodyTalk very often provides that missing piece, that subliminal information or tipping point, which some of our more stubborn cases require. For example, I recall the cases of patients who had stubborn foot lesions, because of on-going diabetes, which, once they appeared, would take many, many months to heal. Once we introduced BodyTalk into the formula of their care, without abandoning the more conventional approaches to diabetes, including diet and some insulin management, these people would respond in a matter of days, or perhaps a few short weeks, rather than many months of recuperation.” – Nancy Werner, M.D., Mexico City

Written from the perspective of Western intellect, “Beyond Concepts” unravels concepts in a way that can leave readers questioning every belief they have ever held about life and their existence.

Who Am I: The Seeker’s Guide to Nowhere by Esther Veltheim, co-founder of the International BodyTalk Association.

This book shares a seeker’s journey. It uses a deconstructive method of self-inquiry to explore what it is to be human. We are reminded of what it was like to be a child full of questions instead of an adult full of answers. The path is challenging and the work is disruptive. It will leave you questioning all your assumptions.
