After an introduction to the key concepts of working with the body, all participants will be invited to do some bioenergetic exercises to experience the value of this technique. Participants will be asked to describe their experience.
The subtle body is the bridge between the physical body and the spirit. There will be a brief discussion of Embodied Soul and its use with addictions, eating disorders and co-dependant relationships. Then, in this experiential personal development program, participants will work with the transformation of personal dream images to "open" the body. It is recommended that participants bring a blanket or coat for simple meditation exercises that will be conducted lying on the floor.
The Mind-Body Healing Experience (MHE) is a standardized approach to therapeutic hypnosis by facilitating gene expression that has been documented in peer-reviewed clinical research since 2008. Beginners use it as an easy way to bypass resistance in people who wish to solve their own problems privately in their own way.
Facilitating the RNA/DNA epigenetics of creating new consciousness is the next step in the evolution of psychotherapy. Restricting psychotherapy to the limitations of the cognitive-behavioral level is becoming a disservice to psychology. We must embrace the bioinformatics of the new technological devices that make it possible to assess and facilitate the dynamics of gene expression and brain plasticity economically within a single session of psychotherapy.
EP13 Topical Panel 01 – Mind-Body Issues - Robert Dilts, Stephen Gilligan, PhD, and Francine Shapiro, PhD
Moderator: Richard Landis, PhD
Compare and contrast clinical and philosophical perspective of experts.
Together, we will explore the implications of Body-oriented psychotherapy and recent findings in the neurosciences, on how the brain and body deals with emotional information, while also providing an understanding of effective therapeutic action. This training is geared for psychotherapists of all types, as well as for physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, bodyworkers, and educators.
EP17 Workshop 10 - In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Released Trauma and Restores Goodness - Peter Levine, PhD
Traditionally, therapies have attempted to change perceptions of the world by means of reason and insight, with conditioning and behavior modification, or with drugs and medications. The trauma response is a set of defensive bodily reactions that people initially mobilize in order to protect themselves, both from threat, and then later, against feeling the crushing totality of their horror, helplessness and pain. However, as time goes on, this avoidance keeps them frozen and stuck in the past, unable to be fully present, in the here and now, and unable to go forward in life. Fixed in the defensive trauma response, the shame, defeat and humiliation, associated with the original event replays itself over and over again in the body.
