CEO/ Direktør, Bodynamic International ApS

Hadi Adam Bahlawan Marcher – Danmark

Hadi er 3-die generation efter hans mor Ditte Marcher og mormor, grundlæggeren af Bodynamic, Lisbeth Marcher og som stadig er aktiv i systemet. Han har været diretør i Bodynamic International siden maj 2019. Han arbejder på at gøre dette system mere kendt og anvendt over hele verden. Det er hans drøm, at bodynamic’s metoder vil blive brugt i forskellige områder af livet.

Hadis karriere startede i en pædagogs stilling i en integreret børnehave. Senere udvidede han sit arbejde med at arbejde med unge. Han har arbejdet med organisationen ‘Røde Kors’ i flygtningelejre ved hjælp af sine bodynamic færdigheder. En del af hans ansvar var at tage sig af flygtningens uledsagede børn og unge og flygtninge, der tidligere havde været tortureret.

I 4 år har H. Marcher arbejdet med mennesker med Autisme Spektrum forstyrrelser ved hjælp af Bodynamic metoder og fået gode resultater. Disse mennesker adskiller sig med hensyn til, hvor godt de er tilpasset livet. Et af resultaterne af hans arbejde var, at Hadi blev bedt om at undervise andre pædagoger i, hvordan han arbejder med mennesker, der har autisme i forskellige institutioner i Danmark.

Han har også arbejdet med patienter, der lider af personlighedsforstyrrelser som skizofreni, bipolar lidelse og PTSD, samt med mennesker, der lider af spiseforstyrrelser og seksuelt misbrug ved hjælp af Bodynamic tilgangen. Inden for den Bodynamic International organisation havde Hadi været assistent træner og medlærer i ‘Chok Traume uddannelsen’ i Brasilien, Ukraine, Danmark og Grækenland. Samt deltaget i kropspsykoterapeutiske konferencer i Europa.

H. Marcher får sin energi ved at bruge alle sine bodynamic færdigheder i hans daglige liv, i sit forhold til sin familie og venner. Han er utrolig glad for at lave yoga og tilbringe tid i naturen og spille fodbold. Spiritualitet har en stor plads i Hadis liv såvel som at holde fast ved ønsket om konstant at genopbygge mere viden omkring de forskellige traditioner fra hele verden. Han elsker sit arbejde, og læringen stopper aldrig

Hun har præsenteret sit arbejde og undervist i mange lande og på mange konferencer siden 1970’erne. Et af hendes vigtigste bidrag til det Bodynamic Systemet er forståelsen af ​​den hypo-responsive reaktion i folks måde at være på, og hvordan denne adfærd repræsenterer sig i musklerne i kroppen, som hypo-responsive muskler i modsætning til den normalt accepterede beskyttelsesreaktion – hyper-responsive muskler. Hun udviklede denne forståelse ind i en Bodymap og et Karakterstruktur system, som kunne undervises i. I slutningen af ​​1980’erne var hun en del af udviklingen af ​​den bodynamic’s tilgang til løsning af choktraumer – og udvikling af nye ressourcer.

Mange artikler om systemet er blevet offentliggjort, ofte af hendes kolleger – men med hendes deltagelse i formuleringen af ​​teorien. Hun har arbejdet med at færdiggøre en bog om systemet i mange år – og har kæmpet med sin dysleksi for at få det til at ske – The Body Encycloedia – købes via Amazon på engelsk og på dansk “Bodyencyklopædi 1 + 2” via info@bodynamic.dk.

I dag er Lisbeth en del af det internationale Bodynamic undervisningsteam og rejser til Grækenland, Brasilien, Tyskland, Holland og Danmark.
