The uniqueness of the International program in Bodymind Integration (Transdisciplinary approach incorporating Body Psychotherapy, Deep Bodywork, Eastern & Western Philosophy & Spirituality)
This training brings together the knowledge and skills of groundbreaking psychological and body-oriented (psycho)therapeutic methods of the past 70 years along with the ancient psycho-energetic, spiritual, philosophical and health systems of systems of East and West .
This training is a cross-fertilization of knowledge and years of practical and educational experience of the pioneering teachers and guest teachers. The research and knowledge of the listed ancient traditions is combined with forms of psychotherapy (integrative and body-oriented) and the sophisticated bodywork used in Postural Integration®, Pelvic-Heart Integration® & Energetic Integration® (as developed by Jack W. Painter, PhD). This training is a quite exceptional, extraordinary and irreversible integration in the training field of today.
The growth process from child-consciousness to fully mature open-consciousness is explored in a profound way and methodologies are taught to promote this development. You will learn a wide range of views and methods as well as the integration or synthesis of these.
Are you looking for both a subtle and powerful way to become a therapist - able to guide people in a professional way towards deep transformations of consciousness - then this training is for you.
- Yourself as the object of investigation
We believe that the profession of therapy is an inner art-form. In our view it is the task of the therapist to make all the barriers and non-clarities present in his or her own psyche, the subject of self-examination and a major task in the process of becoming a therapist. This training is the start of a dedication to the profession of therapist, which we know it is a path of life and awareness. Even after your training you continue to walk the path of consciousness at the most appropriate route.
- The freedom of man
Despite the fact that the program offers many insights and ways to look at yourself, as a student you learn to know little by little your own personal qualities and working style. Through the synthesis of all offered disciplines we make clear that there is no single vision or dogma for therapy. You learn from each method the essence and the relationship to process work. This will make you bright and clear in communication with your clients, and teaches you truly to see with the heart and gives you the ability to help them in all freedom to explore their own process and through that to know themselves. Our trainers are qualified professionals in the fields of psychotherapy, psychology, physiotherapy, psychomotor therapy, social work, psychiatry, tantra, yoga, etc. We find each other in the trans-disciplinary field and cross-fertilize each other.
- Therapy only works from the heart
The love of the client for him/herself, continually increases as pain, stress, fear and blockages are transformed. The therapist, thanks to his skills and his openness, helps the client to acknowledge his/her tensions, blockages and fears in order for transformation to take place. In the client all the resources for transformation are always present and in therapy we see the person behind all problems and blockages, a completely free and whole individual. The client can thus, fully live his/her personal Aliveness & Embodiment in life.
We want to demonstrate and experience the synthesis of body psychotherapy, hands-on and hands-off bodywork, trauma counseling and all the latest insights herein, as well as elements of the psycho-spiritual energy systems of East & West like TCM (5-elements).
We also collaborate in two-yearly international conferences and publications on this subject. We find that man, as a whole, as a holistic system is at once earthy and spiritual, and develops him or herself from less to more clear consciousness. We honor and support those processes in agreement with the universal principle of growth and expansion and indeed consciousness.
