He graduated from the Chiropractic Institute of New York in Career[ edit ] Early career and mentorships[ edit ] During his early years as a chiropractic clinician, starting in he focused on stress reduction and began to observe the relationship between emotional conflict, organismic movement and distortions of body posture.
This education balanced the characterological approaches of Lowen, Freud, and Reich. He also started leading emotional expressive classes at this time to explore the relationship between movement patterns and psychological expression.
In working with her on her research he came to see how physical actions are at the base of the emotional organization of a person and not the other way around. Action precedes emotion and is its creator; action is not the result of emotion.
Durckheim offered an approach that used the human form to reveal the relationship of man to his own nature and to nature in general.
From these experiences Keleman evolved from an instinctual and social emphasis, adding a phenomenological and existential orientation which he felt was a missing philosophical perspective. There, he established his unique form of working bodily, with the all important concept of evolution providing the underlying context for his work and world view. He met Joseph Campbell , the mythologist, and began a fifteen-year association, teaching an annual program in which they developed connections between myth and the body.
These workshops evolved into the annual programs taught by Keleman in Berkeley and Solingen, Germany that connect dreams, body and the formative process. Along with his vision and philosophy of Formative Psychology, he has developed an original methodology for teaching individuals how to participate in their own formative process. Spectrum is a member of the international formative psychology community and its professional supervision and study program.

A perspective that sees our lives as embodied formative processes, voluntarily self-influencing our patterns of action. Stanley conceptualizes our human experience as embodied and grounded in our anatomy—from the simple structure of cells to the shape and movement of our entire body. Now, some 30 years since the publication of Emotional Anatomy, Stanley has added a DVD of moving images from Emotional Anatomy, to bring the internal dynamics of the body to life and make the theory more experientially available. The new DVD follows the core of the book, while including more recent principles of Formative Psychology. Stanley says that people do not always think of the body as the source of our psychology, emotions, and even values. Any interaction, form mom-to-child to woman-to-man, the activity is there and subject to lesser or greater amounts of voluntary differentiated influence.

Emotional Anatomy: Sensational Illustrations To A Somatic Life
An attitude is a bodily set. Your body speaks. Accordingly, our emotions and thoughts are intimately connected to our muscular gestures. Our postures and form, our mobility and motility recount our emotional and cognitive history. We therefore organise our own emotional and mental realities. And here is the nub of it; if we organise our realities, we can disorganise and reorganise our muscular emotional pattern.
