Introductory workshop⎮Postural Integration® ⎮ Energetic Integration®⎮9-10 February 2019
With Dirk Marivoet, MSc.
Trainer/Supervisor for Postural Integration®, Energetic Integration® and Pelvic-Heart Integration® – Teacher/Supervisor for Core-Energetics®
During the weekend you will be introduced to the Postural and Energetic Integration® Therapy Model. During these two days we work with a synthesis of Reichian Breathwork, Gestalt, Body Reading, connective tissue work, bodymind drama and character analysis. Participants will have the opportunity to experience this work – focussing on “Posture” (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) and on “Energy Economy” – in a safe and inviting environment under the guidance of an experienced teacher and supervisor. This is an opportunity for personal work and development in a group context. Given the integrative discipline-transcending character, this workshop is open to interested students and professional therapists. Bring especially your curiosity, your willingness, and your desire to move with you so that you can experience your body, feelings and emotions. For people who are interested in following the professional training in 2020, this Workshop gives you a sense whether to train yourself in this modality. The contents and working methods that are provided in the training are adequately covered.
What is Postural Integration®?
Postural Integration® is an approach that supports a growth process of the whole person, based on his posture. Your posture tells a lot about who you are. By profoundly liberating the myofascial tensions in your body in combination with simultaneous work with breath, movement, energy and the interpersonal relationship, the different body areas can be made aware individually and in relation to each other and the surrounding environment. Unprocessed and unconscious – possibly traumatic – experiences from your personal history can thus be integrated. Energetic Integration® works with the model of Jack Painter’s Energetic Cycle to improve “Energy Economy” and transforming stress, fatigue and blocked energy into flow and pleasure.
You can experience in this workshop the many ways in which you yourself prevent yourself from living deeply and fulfillingly. By learning to move the blocked energy and the associated emotions in a targeted way and to bring them into interaction, you come into a positive lifestream. You will find out how your body and your feelings are an important guideline for change in your life.
You will experience how in this process your entire body begins to change visibly and tangibly. In the work we do, we integrate Reichian insights and practices, Gestalt work, Acupressure (based on 5-elements theory), Bodymind Drama (Embodied role playing, Triangle work (Child, Father, Mother, Ancestors, other placeholders), etc.
People who have experienced this work firsthand, tell us that they become livelier, more powerful, joyful, courageous …. Postural and Energetic Integration® are creative, dynamic and ultimately enjoyable ways to fully experience the creativity, dynamism and joy of your own life force.
