Dr. Arthur Janov,  founder of Primal Therapy died last month in Los Angeles. 

As regards to his development of Primal Therapy, I feel ambivalent. On the one hand, thank you for having the courage to  develop a revolutionary approach to  therapy and not just stay stuck in the status quo. Thanks for your intuitive sense and emphasizing feeling and expression.

On the other hand, thanks, but no thanks for your misunderstanding of Orgonomy and Reichian Therapy and your not acknowledging Reich or others. No thanks for your disgarding and minimizing the all important sense of transference and the therapeutic relationship and not being more open to genuine spiritualiy (A criticism that holds for Reich as well).

I plan to write a longer exploration of Primal, orgonomic and their overconnection to medical models and "cure." The concept of "post-pimal" is similar to Reich's "genital character." Perhaps our great grandchildren, if we survive, can speak of "cure."

At any rate, rest in peace Art.

Diagnosed With Diabetes and Want To Help Others

Brian Leggiere

Greetings    to    all.    I    have    been    diagnosed    with  Type   II   Diabetes.    It    has    been    a    very    stressful    time    for    me.   I    have    had    to    make    many    life-style    adjustments    and    modofications.    It    has    been    hard    to    accept    this    diagnosis    and    I    have     grown    immensely.    I    am    planning    to    do    a    monthly    group    in  Woodstock    for    people    who    are    challenged    by    this    disease.    If    you    are   interested,    please    contact    me.    Thanks.
