The Gesture of Becoming: an Interview with Jaap Van der Wal

Jaap Van der Wal M.D., Ph.D. is a Dutch phenomenological embryologist, teacher, and author who provides a counterweight against the reductionist scientific vision of human existence and the embryonic journey that each of us has taken. Exposing the dogma of anatomy as false, Jaap reshapes our mainstream objectification of self to expose the truth of being human as a lifelong process performed. Liz Koch and Jaap Van der Wal met in the Netherlands informally at the kitchen table to talk about the embryological model for understanding core integrity, the expression of psoas, and the importance of changing our perception of body.

Welcome to Core Awareness™

Liz Koch is an international educator and author who seeks to dissolve the objectification of “body” in order to re-conceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Liz redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal.
