Über diesen Titel
My Female, My Male, My Self, and God, A Modern Woman in Search of Her Soul, is a dramatic and moving piece of spiritual writing from the innermost experience of an amazing woman, Anneliese Widman. The former Broadway dancer and chirographer turned psychotherapist takes the reader on a breathtaking journey from a psychologically abused childhood to a series of failed relationships. Widman shares with the reader her confusion and pain as a child trying to figure out what she had done wrong. Her story of a tyrannical father and an abusive mother grips the reader and compels interest like a character in a Kafka novel -- except this isn't a novel. It's true. Unable to figure out who or what was wrong, she began a life long search for peace and meaning. In her quest, she shares with the reader her innermost secrets, loves, fears, hopes and joys.
Widman's judicious combination of prose and poetry makes her reader an intimate partner in this compelling journey of an amazing modern woman. Escaping from a childhood which plagued her, Widman takes the reader on an thrilling journey of self discovery from a dance career, shattered and frustrating love affairs into therapy. She becomes an early convert to Bioenergetics with its emphasis on a free movement to release the real inner self. Converted to this new way of release, Widman became an early pioneer in the use of bioenergetics to train dancers. Unfortunately few of her colleagues in dance shared her radical viewpoint. Undaunted, she pursued her spiritual quest until she, like all others who walk the path of spiritual discovery, learned to look inward for the answers. In the best tradition of quest literature, Widman shares how she applied what she had learned in an attempt to help others heal themselves. As she realized that truth lay within, she began a second career as a psychotherapist. All who have sought inner wisdom and peace will find My Female, My Male, My Self, and God, a book that they simply can not put down until finished. Then they will want to pick it up again as a guide to use on their own personal path.From the Publisher:
The Journey...to Spiritual Awakening and Wholeness began for Anneliese Widman in Germany. She emigrated with her parents in 1921 to the US. The land of hope, of promises, of opportunities, and dreams fulfilled....it would be that for Anneliese too but only after perseverance, hard work and faith over many years. The tough questions kept coming at her... all revolving around the critical one...who am I?
She discovered early on that she had been born to a tyrannical mother and a sadistic wimp for a father. Events in her early life kept reenforcing this. She escaped while still in grade school through dance but they had left their mark early on. The result for her was many failed relationships. She would learn later, much later the "why" for this too.
But she had her dancing. And dance she did with full energy and perseverance. Her dance became her dance career, an amazing dance career. With much hard work she rose to prominence and danced with Marlon Brando in "A Flag was Born" and E.G. Marshall in "Dear Judas" and shared the marque with Mort Stahl in "The Next President." She also danced with the New York Ballet Co and overseas in "Up In Central Park. She continued her work in the Yiddish Theater and taught and performed with the Israeli national dance troupe.
Yet the questions persisted WHO AM I? She could escape through dance for a time. But the personal life was still in shambles and Anneliese continued her searching for answers. She entered into therapy which led to her discovery of Bioenergetics. This deals with the body as a mirror of the mind. This discovery was the second formative experience in her life. Through Bioenergetics, Anneliese learned that frustration and angst produce musculature armoring and that, in her case, this armoring was preventing her from becoming a fully realized dancer. With the help of Dr. Warner, Anneliese learned to experience the real joy of movement. Bioenergetics motivated Anneliese to challenge conventional dance theory and to revolutionize the dance world.
This discovery also led her to unlocking the other mysteries in her life. Like all others who walk the inner path, she learned to look inward for answers. She realized more fully the role of her parents...the important role they had to play so she could journey to personal and spiritual wholeness.
Now, Anneliese Widman shares with others what she has discovered. Through her psychotherapy practice she helps equips others to pursue their own personal journey to wholeness.
And through her just released book MY FEMALE, MY MALE, MY SELF, AND GOD she tells her story, taking the reader on an emotionally charged, breathtaking journey...her journey to self-discovery and wholeness. She shares her innermost secrets, loves, fears, hopes and joys using both prose and poetry to make the reader an intimate partner in this compelling, spiritual and psychological journey. Her life-long quest...through dance, Bioenergetic therapy and persistent question, WHO AM I ...brings answers to what went wrong and creates new peace and meaning.
In the best tradition of quest literature, Widman shares with the reader what she has learned from her own therapy and Bioenergetics. She does this in a way that will be useful to others who are seeking to heal themselves. It is her journey...but this dramatic and moving spiritual writing becomes a guide for the reader's personal path.
And finally, Anneliese Widman firmly believes that everyone has a unique role to play and that hers is to help explain the mysteries of the female/male energies and to explore the complexities of the human personality.
She has come along way since the girl who emigrated from Germany...she has unlocked the door from "Not I", traveled through the "I" and now understands and encourages others to discover the "I AM."
