There have been many workshops in the past and new ones are constantly being created on various subjects. This page gives you an idea of subjects covered in the past and that may be offered again in the future. Check the bottom of our main training page to see an updated list of workshops currently being offered.
- How do you create archetype personality towards others and the world?
- What you are showing others and what you want others to see can be two different things.
- Which core decision are you protecting that is more important to you than being met and feel connected?
- How do you protect these inner core decisions and how could you find the door to get into these deep places within you?
Decisions are like burn marks deep within your system that do not only lie in your coding system but in your deep imprint. Both the external presentation and the internal wishes are illusions but constantly take you out of balance. So how do we start finding the path of not being seduced to heaven or hell but keep the balance not in innocence and ignorance but in wisdom and surrender.
On these two seminars, four days each, we will work with the outer and inner personality archetypes that we have created through all our ego-states and travel to find one or more of our core decisions and our illusions to overcome ourselves. We will do this by body exercises, cognitive work and group work.
Centering – Boundaries – Grounding
Several decades of research have led Bodynamic Analysis to distinguish eleven categories of psychological function, which we call the Ego Functions. Each muscle in the body, and groups of related muscles, embody a highly specific psychological content that is associated with one Ego Function, and occasionally with more than one.
The responsiveness that the therapist observes by palpating a particular muscle offers information about the client’s patterns of Ego Functions – and at the same time information about the Character Structures and the respective stage of development in childhood. Combining those two layers of information offers valuable new cognitive understanding relevant to the therapeutic process, while working with the muscles in question – either by hand or through movement – helps bring to the surface the psychological content of the particular muscle, and a host of correspondences to specific Character Structures and Ego Functions.
Come and get a sense of Bodynamic. How by using your body you can increase your psychological capacity.
Boundaries vs. Limits
After many years in working with clients and teaching people in workshops and trainings to body psychotherapy, I have realized how many people use phrases such as, “you inviolate my boundaries”, “I can’t keep my boundaries”, “people do not respect my boundaries” or “no one sees my boundaries”. But what most people are speaking about is not their boundaries, it is their ability or lack of ability to understand or handle or being aware of, their limits. Your lack of ability to handle your inner limit will give you the illusion of being inviolated in your boundaries even if it has nothing to do with your boundaries in itself. In my experience that’s why people can work with different boundaries issues for years without making any radical change, except using their boundaries for disconnecting instead of keeping the connection.
The boundaries define our physical and personal space and a physical violation of them puts us in fear, where neither dignity nor connection has a place. On the other hand the limits have to do with our energy management, the ability to manage our energy when someone else is triggering different layers of feelings and sensations in our body and how well we can contain or manage these different inner states of being. When we realize our limits we can pause, put a stop or we can bodily activate muscles that supports us, so that our ability to stay connected without falling in the illusion that someone is attacking our dignity or the right to our space, increases tremendously.
In this two days will be a bodily experimental workshop where we will work with the two principles, limits and boundaries. You will get a clear inner sensation and knowledge of your boundaries and your limits. You will gain awareness and strengthen your resources. You will come to realize how important it is to be able to distinguish the difference between boundaries and limits in order to get a more successful life.
Dance between Mutual Connection & Dignity
The core belief of the Bodynamic System is that the human being is a social being motivated by a deep drive towards contact and connection with others, without losing pride and dignity, seeking what Lisbeth Marcher has termed as Mutual Connection.
Just like I can maintain or break Mutual Connection, I can either maintain my individual Dignity or relinquish it. To maintain my individual Dignity in an interaction with others, I must respect my own self so that my way of being, my feelings and my actions are consistent with my authentic self – my actual needs, impulses, preferences, wishes and views.
? person would choose to preserve Connection at the expense of Dignity – to remain in contact with a person or a situation that he/she really can’t tolerate, because in that instance losing Connection is too frightening while losing his/her individual Dignity is more preferable of two undesirable choices. And conversely, every person has at some point withdrawn from contact that was too challenging in order to be able to preserve his/her individual Dignity. This explains yet another extreme of the human condition that we often witness: No mutual Connection but a lot of individual Dignity in utter loneliness.
Come and sense how you experience mutual connection and dignity in your daily life and learn new skills to balance them.
Work with your own Greatness
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
When Marianne Williamson wrote this she didn’t know that neuroscience would prove her so right.
This is a two days workshop devoted to work with our greatness. We will do that in connection, with our dignity, through our body and by challenging our cognitive skills and our fear of being divine.
Access more of your Power in a time of Challenge
How to find the middle ground, replace your guilt with free choices, hold your direction and reach your goals.
Access more of your power, so you can express it and use it in a time of challenge. This is a four days workshop in which we will work with different layers of our will structure through our body, with our minds, in connection with our dignity, using life demos as examples.
Hope vs. Hopelessness – Miracles of hope and the destruction of hopelessness
This training will be presented into what layers of feeling are connected to hope and hopelessness. How can we move through our body from hopelessness into hope. From dreams to reality, from being who we are instead of running from ourselves.
This workshop consists of lectures, exercise and group work.
