This a Special Skills Workshop/Training. It is open to all BioDynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release trainees and practitioners, as well as anyone wanting to broaden their understanding of Character Structures and how to work with them in sessions.
Join us on this special journey through the formation of important mind-body patterns known as “Character Structures”. We all carry the story of our early life experiences, and it is written into our emotional and physical body. It’s been discovered that there are five basic Character Structures that form in response to how we are attached, loved, received and related to as children. These Structures are held particularly in our muscles and get “hard-wired” into our body in the form of “armouring”, shaping our bodies and restricting the flow of vital life energy within us. This armouring also strongly affects our behaviours, beliefs and personality – beyond conscious awareness – like default programs shaping how we live our lives and relate to others.
This ‘armoring’ of the body blocks the flow of bioenergy and limits the natural expression of feeling, connection and essence. In this group, we will connect with the language of our bodies, exploring the Character Structures as a pathway for healing and personal growth. We will embody the underlying emotions and energetics of each structure, while also learning methods and techniques to “de-armor”, build resources and free up contracted energy. As energy begins to flow freely and naturally we can experience tremendous aliveness, together with feelings of relaxation and well-being. This enables us to ground and center ourselves, dissolve blockages and body armor, and open our hearts. This workshop will also enable us to compassionately understand and work with the various Character Structures within ourselves and others, allowing us to reclaim our heart and vital life energy.
This highly experiential workshop is rooted in the theory and practices of Wilhelm Reich, Bioenergetics, trauma healing and somatic psychology. We will use breath, meditation, self-inquiry, movement, and partner exercises, giving you a chance to discover more about yourself and to practice these techniques with others. You will also be introduced to the essential elements of trauma healing, containment, grounding and the felt sense.
This group is designed for breathwork practitioners, those working in the field of trauma therapy, healers, coaches and therapists of all types, as well as anyone wanting to increase their self-awareness and gently free the constrictions of their mind and body with trauma healing techniques. This workshop is a special skills event for those willing to deepen their knowledge of how to approach body oriented therapy. The focus is on working with Character Types by using the BioDynamic Breathwork and Trauma release System.
