The Dreaming Body:
An Interview with Julie Diamond, Ph.D. (Part I)


This facsinating interview was originally published in Rolf Lines, the professional journal of the Rolf Institute. Julie Diamond worked together with analyst/physicist Arnold Mindell (author of Working with the Dreaming Body, The Shaman's Body, Sitting in the Fire, etc.) as one of the original founders of Process Work (or Process Oriented Psychology). In this interview, which is the first part of a longer conversation that took place on January 3rd 1999, Julie talks with Til Luchau about some of the basic ideas behind Process Work, and gives examples of how they might be applied to working with physical symptoms or posture issues.

Rolfing, Welfare Reform, Addictions, and Change:
An Interview with Julie Diamond, Ph.D. (Part II)


In recent years, the writings of Arnold Mindell (such as The Leader as Martial Artist, The Shaman's Body, Sitting in the Fire, etc.) have generated considerable interest in fields as diverse as organizational development and shamanism. Mindell's original work was with body symptoms and dreaming, as detailed in books such as Working with the Dreaming Body and Coma: A Key to Awakening. In this, the second part of an interview conducted on January 3rd 1999, Julie Diamond (a senior teacher of Arnold Mindell's Process Work) talks with Til Luchau about several topics that will be very interesting to practitioners who work with the body.
