“My experience with Chernobyl, Ufa, and Baku war survivors reinforced and solidified my understanding of the immense role sensory-motor reflex patterns and ‘stress axis’ had in survival… I came to a deeper understanding of the importance of specific reflexes in protection, spatial orientation under stress, and why visual and auditory processing and decoding becomes limited. Watching children get better through specifically organized motion and kinesthetic anchoring, the effect of techniques I had designed, I understood the immense possibilities for helping people to transmute the experience of overwhelming grief and tragedy to that of a sense of ‘safe here and now’ with unfolding possibilities using their neurodevelopmental patterns- reflexes.”
