EMDR in the Amazon rainforest
I recently traveled to the South American Rainforest whilst on vacation as I had heard reports that some native peoples use eye movement in healing rituals (e.g., Australian Aboriginals and some South American Indians). As the author of EMDR self-use tapes, I am interested in other applications of REM type stimuli. I was curious to find out first hand whether native people utilize eye movements and how. I was also interested in investigating native approaches to pain and healing because of my work with chronic pain sufferers.
