This workshop introduce the profound connection of body, mind and emotions and the language of the body, the world of sensations, energy, breath and movement . . .
Touch is a language. Touch communicates directly with the body. It is between verbal and non-verbal levels. Touch creates an immediate wholistic experience felt in the body and with it an emotional response arises.
Biodynamic therapeutic touch techniques is a psychotherapeutic tool i.e. Biodynamic massage. It allows us not only to communicate, build and support the healthy aspects of self, (*Primary Personality), but as well to address the physical manifestations of the defences, (*Secondary Personality).
In this workshop we will learn and experience basic biodynamic massage techniques as well as exercises and their affects on our body/Mind and wellbeing. We will explore how, for example, by working on ourselves we can reduce stress and anxiety and bring a greater sense of security and balance. The same biodynamic massage techniques are taught as part of the four years diploma course and are an integral part of Biodynamic Psychotherapy as in one on one therapy.
8 hours CPD - Certificate Issued
*The Primary Personality and the Secondary Personality are two fundamental concepts in Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy. The Primary Personality being the unique potential of each person inviting a wholeness of body-mind-spirit. The Secondary Personality being the defence (armour) structure which even though may serve us in some aspects it as well limits us.
