In the western world we have come to believe, since the sixteenth century, that the body and the mind are two separate entities - that the mind "thinks" and the body "feels". This split in the western concept of being has implications that reach into every corner of our social, personal and private lives. This PDF begins by looking at the issue of what has been called The Imposter Syndrome - the feeling of being an imposter that many successful people from humble beginnings feel. It suggests that this ontological insecurity is based upon deep childhood learnings that are locked into the bodyʻs own structure.  The issue is explored in a Gestalt Therapy session involving the design of a school in which the designer discovered deep and hitherto experiences and feeling which were shaping the content and form of the design in remarkable ways. We compare this western view of the body with an eastern conceptions and discover interesting parallels in the work of some western psychiatrists. The discussion has deeper implications, indeed, for indigenous peoples who have been the recipients of what may be entirely inappropriate forms of counselling and psychiatric treatment and raises the demand for a model of indigenous psychology.
