ANOTHER WAY...

Posted by Betty on Sunday, May 26, 2019, In : somatic therapy 
When I woke up this morning, I suddenly had a new idea about somatic therapy.

When I am frustrated, irritable or in a bad mood, I have begun going to a gym and moving or do exercising, rather than just talking with someone. This action supports my theory of somatic therapy (emphasizing first correcting the body with the mind following - Dr. Wilhelm Reich's version) verses somatic therapy (which, being largely regarded as a form of psychology, emphasizes correcting the mind through talking with...

TIMING, TEMPO AND RHYTHM

Posted by Betty on Thursday, January 10, 2019, In : Betty's Blogs 
My husband (and dance partner) and I talked about how to explain rumba today. Our instructor, Mr. Albert Franz, always said what made a dance particular was foot position, rise and fall, sway, contra body (Modern or Standard Ballroom) or Cuban motion (Latin), timing and rhythm, direction/allignment, turn, footwork, and finally, precede/follows, but it is timing and rhythm that seems to give the biggest problem and cause the most confusion in dancers. In my book, IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY (...

REAL SOMATIC THERAPY!

Posted by Betty (Setsuko Tsuchiya) on Monday, January 7, 2019, In : Betty's Blogs 
Happy New Year!

It is already Jan. 6th. Time goes so fast.

My husband and I went to Hawaii Kai Retirement Center to host a monthly dance. It's strictly volunteer, and I love it!

This is the first event of 2019. We hold it on the first Sunday of every month. This month was New Year's Party!

From 6:00 pm, retirement center residents gathered at "The Ice Cream Parlor" in the Center next to the dining room in Phase Two. We danced to Glen Miller's music for 20 minutes, then we did a Tango performance,...

More ENGLISH! もっともっと英語を!

Posted by Betty on Monday, October 1, 2018, In : Betty's Blogs 
今、彼のブログを日本語に訳したんだけど、すごい時間を要して疲れた!と同時に、もっと英語、勉強しなきゃあ!って思った。

英語での本を出版してから、英語トラウマと、仕事柄、日本語が多い!そして日本語での日々の生活が多くなった。
だから、必然的に、脳みそは日本語。寂しい!!

時々、日本語での夢をみたあさは、あっ!日本語の夢だった!とちょっと...

RENEWING THIS BLOG. AGAIN.

Posted by Betty on Saturday, October 28, 2017, In : Betty's Blogs 
Aloha. Recently, I have been thinking of renewing my life and this blog. When I read my last blog entry, I was so busy finishing my master's degree in somatic therapy and publishing my book, IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY (Savant 2017), I couldn't find time to continue blogging, and I was afraid I'd have to end Futari Blog. Gladly, I have now finished my master's degree (yay!) and had my book published (double yay!), and now have time and interest. In fact, I've entirely changed my thinking abo...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Posted by Betty on Wednesday, January 14, 2015, In : Betty's Blogs 
Happy New Year!!

It has been so busy a new year.  I went to work on New Year's Day.  After working, Dan and I attended my editor's wedding in the evening on January second (my editor, David, is editing my upcoming book, IN SEARCH OF SOMATIC THERAPY).  The weather was heavy with rain but the wedding had so many people and was a very relaxed ceremony.

It has been three years since Dan injured his knee and his doctor said to forget about dancing. He recommended surgery and said he had a 75% chance...

PLAY!!

Posted by Betty and Dan on Saturday, July 20, 2013,
Aloha!
My husband  asked me that why and how people play.  I said, what? I didn't know what to reply. He asked me another way how to play. How to play, I wondered?  Do you play alone? he asked this time.

I said that people play with other people, not alone.  For example, a husband and a wife go to someplace together and hold hands. That means when people play they often like touch, skin-to-skin, that is like somatic therapy (my definition of somatic therapy involves breathing and touch).

When pe...
