Biodynamic Touch Foundations

September 6 @ 9:00 am - September 8 @ 6:00 pm


9a-6pm Each Day

This foundations course is for anyone who is interested in the healing power of presence. Refine your ability to be present with yourself and others. This practice supports bringing about an enhanced quality of embodiment that can enrich the quality of your life & the practice of therapeutic touch.

Biodynamic Touch is a practice of embodied presence. This study and practice is a tool for the student of life to access their connection to source energy, with Nature. In its essence, Biodynamic Touch is not limited to being solely an applied technique or modality. This practice serves as an evolutionary path of healing for both practitioner and recipient.

The study and practice of Biodynamic Touch acts as a powerful tool to promote homeostasis and encourages compassionate connection. Both of which enhance the skills of the professional and function as an invaluable support for achieving and maintaining personal well-being.

The Biodynamic approach emphasizes that health is inherent in the body and explores how health expresses itself in every living process.  The therapeutic container supports a returning of the body to a greater relationship to this inherent health. Centered at the heart of the Biodynamic approach is a held understanding that it is the inherent resources available that support change and that given the right relationship and resources, the intelligence in the body will choose the best way to transform and heal.

In the study of Biodynamic Touch we use the relational field created by physical touch to amplify our experience of connectivity. The joining of the two fields provides greater potency of life force and also provides opportunity for us to practice being with ourselves while also being present with and for another. In the workshop container there is opportunity to examine oneself with the support of the feedback that is delivered byway of relational touch. For the attentive observer, the feedback loop that is created offers a gateway into greater understanding of ones inherent nature.

Biodynamic Touch is helpful in relieving body-mind symptoms that result from life stressors and traumatic events (including physical &/or emotional impact). The nourishing presence offered helps the nervous system come into a resting state that supports the self healing mechanisms to restore balance and calm. Restoration of movement in places of inertia supports the release of life force that can be then utilized throughout the whole body system in support of systemic health.
