Body of lies

What is the lived and embodied experience of deception? How does lying show up in the body? What is the impact of a body full of lies?

Nora Alwah offers that to answer these questions “one must begin with the truth, and the truth is, ironically, that everyone lies”.

This paper explores the somatic defenses when coping with untruth and misrepresentation, and the somatic impact of deceptive behavior in the body.
