Love Matters
Love Matters. It does indeed. Love enables the intregration of psychology, politics, spirituality in our approach to life and work. And not least, I want to argue, therapy work.

The Love Matters strand here in eIpnosis provides a field, maybe more accurately a meadow, in which I hope a variety of versions of the notion of love as a pre-eminent aspect of the human condition will take root and flourish.

The mix of material relies on me and people close to me at the moment and may seem somewhat haphazard but then so is love when the wildness and jouissance has not been squeezed from it.

As a reminder, if we needed it, of what we are about, I recommend the Breast Crawl Video

If you have anything you'd like to contribute, do send it.

Initiation of Breast-feeding by Breast Crawl
Every newborn, when placed on the mother’s abdomen, soon after birth, has the ability to find its mother’s breast all on its own and to decide when to take the first breastfeed. This is called the ‘Breast Crawl’.

'...An action research inquiry into living and working from love. So far as love is defined as the active mutual pursuit of flourishing with Others — it requires the absence of coercion and force. In other words Dominance is the antithesis of Love.

Learning to love, learning to live from love, thus requires that we also confront our inner tyrants, that we move to eliminate our use of force and coercion and work to build the skills and emotional competence that negotiation, cooperation and mutuality require...'.
