This volume's central belief is that by working on the spinal reflexes of the feet, hands and head, the formative pre-birth period can be brought back into focus, so allowing healing to take place. It puts forwards the beliefs of Robert St John's whole-body approach to healing.
The founder of this whole-body approach to healing, Robert St. John (who author Gaston Saint-Pierre trained with) gave it the curious name 'Metamorphosis'. Yet the analogy with a caterpillar is apt - for, just as it metamorphoses into a butterfly, so, as this books explains, we as human beings have the capacity to transform and heal ourselves. The technique's two leading exponents present its principles - the central one being the belief that during the nine months between conception and birth our physical, mental, emotional and behavioural structures are all established. By working on the spinal reflexes of the feet, hands and head, this formative period can be brought back into focus, so allowing healing to take place. This positive, life-affirming book is a fascinating and uplifting work, and conveys a powerful message - that we can leave behind patterns of psychological or physical 'dis-ease' and move forward, re-energised.
Gaston Saint-Pierre was born in French Canada and has lived in England since the early 1960s. After 14 years in finance, he trained as a Montessori teacher. In the 1970s he trained with Robert St John. In 1980 he founded the Metamorphic Association, a charitable foundation, and now lectures and teaches worldwide. Debbie Shapiro (formerly Boater) was born in England, but now divides her time between there and America, teaching and practising the Metamorphic Technique and healing therapy. She is the author of The Bread Book and co-author of The Healer's Handbook. Her husband, Eddie Shapiro, is a Western Yogi.
