Alexander Lowen

Fear of Life

Fear of Life is an in-depth study of the human condition within modern
culture. Alexander Lowen challenges conventional thinking and contends that
neurotic behavior stems from a fear of life, and represents the individual’s
unconscious effort to overcome that fear. But one cannot do so. One can only
suppress or deny it, at the cost of spontaneity and being at ease.
Lowen explains that being a person requires that one stop their frantic doing,
and take time out to breathe and to feel. If one has the courage to accept and feel the pain and hurt, despair and sadness, and inner emptiness or anxiety
in one’s life, one can heal trauma and gain pleasure, fulfillment, and joy….the
object of Bioenergetic Analysis.

    The neurotic individual is in conflict with himself. Part of his being is trying to overcome another part. His ego is trying to master his body; his rational mind, to control his feelings; his will, to overcome his fears and anxieties. Though this conflict is in large part unconscious, its effect is to deplete the person's energy and to destroy his peace of mind. Neurosis is internal conflict. The neurotic character takes many forms, but all of them involve a struggle in the individual between what he is and what he believes he should be. Every neurotic individual is caught in this struggle.
