A habitual movement as common as nail-biting or toe-tapping can be the key to pulling out addictive behavior by its roots. These unconscious movement "tags" indicate the places where our bodies have become split off from our psyches. When brought to consciousness and confronted they will often tell us very plainly where our psychological suffering originated, showing us where to begin reconnecting body and soul. Christine Caldwell, a pioneer in the field of somatic psychology, has created an original model for working with body wisdom called the Moving Cycle. She describes how this form of therapy has worked effectively in her own practice, and she provides practical techniques to show how we can learn to listen to what our bodies are telling us, confront addictive habits, and learn to celebrate our inherent wisdom and elegance.

A professor of counseling for 21 years in the school of education at the University of Colorado, Gay Hendricks earned his doctorate degree from Stanford University in 1974. Originally trained as a traditional psychologist, a life-altering experience caused Hendricks to rethink his approach to healing patients. Adopting a body-mind integration theory, Hendricks opened the Hendricks Institute to teach people core skills for conscious living. Hendricks is the author of over 20 books in the field of education, transpersonal psychology, and centering, including Conscious Breathing, The Centering Book, Learning to Love Yourself, and At the Speed of Life. His work has also been mentioned or reviewed in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Self, GQ, Psychology Today, Yoga Journal, USA Today, and the Edmonton Journal.

Kathlyn Hendricks has been a pioneer in the field of body-mind integration for thirty years. Her explorations of the catalytic power of the creative arts in psychotherapy and organizational systems have been featured in magazines, journals and books such as Transpersonal Approaches to Counseling and Psychotherapy, Chocolate for a Women's Soul, Getting in Touch, Personal Transformation and the Handbook of Workplace Spirituality. She received her doctorate in psychology in 1982 and has been a member of the Academy of Dance/Movement Therapists of the American Dance Therapy Association since 1975. She has consulted and taught in the graduate programs of many universities, including the University of Colorado, Union Graduate School, Antioch University, Naropa Institute and the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute. She has an international reputation as a seminar leader for health and business professionals. Kathlyn also consults regularly for corporations and organizations such as AT & T Bell Labs, Motorola, Dell, and Monsanto. She is the co-author of ten books, including Conscious Loving and The Conscious Heart, and the author of a book of poetry, A Waterbaby Contemplates Dry Land.
