The Memory Palace of Bones: Exploring Embodiment Through the Skeletal System is an unprecedented exploration of the anatomy of the bones of the body, and a unique set of reflections on the role each individual bone plays in our lives, looking at both its physical and energetic contributions.
Written and presented in an imaginative and highly readable style, the book describes each individual bone and, where appropriate, the surrounding joints. It combines the anatomical expertise of the authors with their appreciation for the beauty of the body, presenting a unique perspective that values extensive clinical expertise as well as imagination as a source of wisdom and depth.
Seeing and discussing bones as a wisdom source is a topic that until now has never been systematically covered. The Memory Palace of Bones will be read and treasured by practitioners and students of massage therapy, bodywork, movement professionals, Zero Balancers, chiropractors, osteopaths, Rolfers, body-centered psychotherapists, students and teachers of yoga, performing artists and other health professionals as well as by laymen wanting a greater understanding of and connection to their bodies.

Press Reviews

  • Kevin Frank and Caryn McHose, authors of How Life Moves, Explorations in Meaning and Body Awareness

    The authors guide us on a rich and intimate journey to the heart and meaning of our bony skeleton. Somatic practitioners of all kinds can benefit from taking this journey and making it their own--so as to feel the breadth and depth of what the bones have to tell us, physiologically and psycho-emotionally. An impressive achievement.
  • Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, author of The Biology of Belief

    A source of wisdom that offers readers an opportunity to manifest a personal transformation, one that can restore health and reignite one's passion for life.
  • Elizabeth Larkam author, Fascia in Motion

    The Memory Palace of Bones celebrates the musicality of cellular communication emanating from the resonant marrow of our being. Poetry and prose illuminate unexpected associations, evoking marvels of motion, sensuality of touch and delighted satisfaction. When the sirens of trans humanism scramble subtle signals of deep wisdom and artificial intelligence disturbs the delicacy of complex living systems, recalibrate, and attune with the experience of this book.
  • Tom Myers

    The most poetic journey through our innerness since Deane Juhan surprised us all with the soaring and elegant Job's Body. Like Deane, David Lauterstein and Jeff Rockwell are very experienced bodywork therapists and teachers. And also like Deane, they are artists with a deep appreciation of history, exploring the skeleton's subtle nuances and obscured meanings. Pure pleasure reading.
