Bali

The land where I hold classes is a primordial importance and factor in my decision to offer workshops. 

This class will be held in Ubud, Bali, where I've spent 13 years of my life. This land is sacred to me.  It has taught me more than I could ever imagine and it is a blessing to be held by Bali during our healing journey. 

You can easily find accommodation around Penestanan, where the retreat will be held. 

A vegan lunch will be provided, prepared by chef Made of Moksa restaurant.

If you feel the calling to be on one of those classes you are welcome to join us for this journey.

Level 3    February 18-22nd, 2023

“All works are being done by the energy and power of nature, but due to the delusion of ego, people assume themselves to be the doer”

 

— Expressed by the Bhagavad Gita.

what is it ?

Biodynamic Touch is a blend of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Symbolic Language. It is for anyone interested in learning about healing, holding space, enhancing your perceptive skills & your therapeutic posture, and learning about the power of non-invasive touch.

 

Level 1 - Sacred Space: (6 days) We refine our awareness of space. Developing perceptual and relational skills, anchoring your awareness in the biodynamic approach and discovering subtle energetic anatomy and the principles of healing. We create a non-invasive field I call "sacred space" where we contact the first boundary of the patient, his or her space. We will learn how space is the first boundary and the principle agent of healing forces within a person's field. 

Level 2 - Inner Space: (6 days) Awareness of Fluids. Module 2 brings us on a journey through physiology, integrating within ourselves our own inner space through the ventricular space in the brain and the cerebrospinal fluid. We will learn to apply touch and listen to the fluid of the body, through the mid-tide and long-tide. We cover the foundation of Craniosacral therapy. 

 

In Level 3 - As above so below (5 days) We develop awareness of structures, we work more deeply with embryology, venous sinuses and the language of the body, living anatomy and it’s symbolism.

Graduates of module I and beyond can take part of our online student community called "Symbiosis"

Theses 6-day classes start with centring and listening practices intended to create a sacred space for us to explore the dynamics of healing, to deepen into the stillness of presence, and to enter into contact with the body by allowing its inner wisdom to guide us through a treatment. 

We will also cover the principles and anatomy of craniosacral therapy such as the fluid tide, diaphragms and membranes, and look at stages of embryology through a combination of theory, practice, group sharing, demonstration and Q&A periods.

The intimate space created within the group is of primary importance. 

Spaces are limited to 8-12 students and the group field will be shaped by each of us. Feel into your heart if this is the class for you. 

This course is designed for anyone interested in healing, whether you are a practitioner or if you take this class for your own personal healing. It is an invitation to gently immerse yourself in the stillness centred in your heart, and grounded in the mountains of Norway or in the tropical jungles of Bali.

I invite you to join us on this inner journey.

We will cover

Perceptual skills
 

The field is highly complex.  We will learn to perceive the body on multiple levels of organization -- physical, fluids and energetic. In turn, these skills will become foundationsfor therapeutic use. We will familiarize ourselves with mid-tide, fulcrums, primal orientation, embryological forces and living anatomy.

 

Contact skills

 

To facilitate a session, we position ourselves in relationto a patient. This position, although neutral, is enhanced by the ability to be present and is applied through perceptual skills andthrough touch. In order to listen to subtle motions and information contain within the body mind, we need to develop presence and body awareness. Knowledge of physiology and anatomy will enhance your awareness. Learning how to listen with your hands while creating a safe touch enhancesthe relationship with physiology.

 

Relational field

This work is relational in essence and therefore developing the presence we bring  into the  treatment space is of the utmost importance. We will learn the steps required todeepenour presence, hold space, to listen and to be. 99% of the work happens through the unseen and the unknown. Yourability to remain present while in the unknown is the essence of this work.

 

Therapeutic skills

Being a compassionate skilled listener is something we can all develop. We will explorehow to respond to the variety of situations arising in aclinical setting, from relational issues betweentherapistandpatient to handling trauma release.

Moksa  

plant based restaurant

Over the year I have become a good friend of Chef Made from Moksa plant based restaurant. His dream is to create a community between the founders, the staff, the farmers, the expat community and everyone visiting Bali. 

I came to eat at Moksa even before the restaurant opened, their warm welcome and the intuitive spontaneous cooking of chef Made touched me deeply and created a lasting connection with them. 

Since, I've dreamed of the day where I'll hold classes on their land. 

Located in Panestanan, you can easily find accommodation nearby and walk to class everyday. 

I'm looking forward for you to meet Chef Made from one of the most acclaimed new vegan restaurant and garden in Bali

What a day look like

Class starts on the morning of the first day at 10am and end around 6-7pm.  A typical day will see a lecture on different topics, practical exercises, demonstration sessions, exchange practice, sharing and questions & answer.  

 

The retreat also includes a vegan lunch.
