Reflections on Gerda Geddes

What is it about?

This article uses a couple of books by and about Gerda Geddes, who was very influential in bringing Tai Chi to the UK. However, in "another life" she was part of the "Golden AGe of Body Psychotherapy" that existed around Wilhelm Reich and his partner, Elsa Lindenberg, in Oslo, Norway from 1934-1939.
