The Mind in the Body,
The Body in the Mind
Biodynamic Psychotherapy is a Body psychotherapy. Its precepts are that we have created a body shape which acts as a structure to contain and control our life force.
Our childhood experiences having caused us to design the nature of our physicality.
While this kept us safe and acceptable to our environments/family systems,it meant denying the truth and beauty of our True natures.
We shall be exploring the basic tenents of Biodynamic Psychology and the varied ways we work to liberate the Life Force and reduce the Trauma patterns being carried in the body and hence enabling an Expressive Sense of Self.
An experiential workshop of Biodynamic Massage and Breath Work. Excellent as an introduction to this type of work or as Continual Professional Development.
Bodywork, be it conventional or complementary therapy, can spark emotional responses in the client. The touch seems to re-awaken forgotten emotional realities, positive and negative. Practitioners should be sensitive to the emotional impact of their touch and changing breathing patterns, understand it and interact with them.
Biodynamic Massage is often used within Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy, but can also be used as a treatment in its own right. It is designed to help us literally digest our emotional and physical stress, not just in our minds but also in our bodies. Biofeedback of the 'psycho-peristalsis' is used to help guide the massage.
