solar plexus (Lawrence)

In the psychology of D. H. Lawrence, a "sympathetic centre" on the lower plane of consciousness:

  • "the center of primal, constructive consciousness and activity"
  • the "primal affective center"
  • "the centre at which this consciousness lies and spins"
  • "the source and clue of the living unconscious, the origin"
  • "the powerful, active psychic centre in a new child"
  • "the first seat of our primal consciousness"
