The Foundation Training is a one-year introductory program in the Bodynamic System. Throughout this foundational course, you will delve into character structures, character positions, and the fundamental concepts essential for understanding contact and communication as presented by the system. These concepts include mutual connection, dignity, boundaries, centering, and grounding.
The detailed breakdown of the various developmental phases during childhood, paired with central developmental issues and their association with evolving defense mechanisms, offers a framework for comprehending human expression. Through this training, you will sharpen your skills, enabling you to be more present and accurate in your professional endeavors.
What will we cover in this training?
During these 20 days of training, divided into 4 modules, we will present lectures on fundamental psychological and physiological development and how these two are interconnected. This unique combination will provide information about the formation of character and its various defense systems. You will learn how your character affects your body and why your physiological body appears as it does. You will understand the reasons behind your unique preferences and biases, and we will explore what has been helpful to you in those tendencies and what obstacles they can create in your life.
Moreover, you will become acquainted with different Bodynamic techniques that will teach you how to support someone in changing their behavior. These techniques can be applied to people of all ages, including children. Additionally, you will become more skilled in reading the physiological body and interpreting this information in psychological terms by identifying areas of a person’s strength and areas needing more attention. This knowledge will offer new perspectives on how to act and help you determine what would be most beneficial in contact with others. Lastly, you will familiarize yourself with the short version of the Bodyknot, a technique we teach for maintaining dignity and mutual connection in difficult situations with others and oneself. It is a valuable tool for conflict resolution and developing an observing ego.
