The chest, the house of the heart, is an important center of a person’s being. I may locate my consciousness in my head, but my self, my existence as a solid person in the world, starts from my chest, from which I feel myself rise and radiate ([28] pp. 22–27; [13], Ch. 27). At least in Euro-American culture, it is to my chest, not my face, that I point when I signify myself. In Hindu philosophy of the body the chest is not the only center, but it has the integrative power among them ([11], pp. 132–135).

Catherine Long, artist and co-founder of Practice in Dialogue, leads a guided reading in the context of her own recent experience of breast cancer.
