Traditional psychotherapy works toward congruence in a person’s thinking, emotions, actions, and life choices. Body-oriented therapy understands that the body is also profoundly affected by our life experiences. Identifying and releasing attitudes and old images held in our physical structure adds an important component to therapy. This promotes lasting change, allowing for free flow of life energy from within us so we can more fully realize our life, our joy.
This experiential workshop will give participants the opportunity to experience the basic premises of Body-Psychotherapy that originated with Wilhelm Reich and now integrates Core Energetics and contemporary approaches including somatic approaches, current neurobiology and trauma therapy. The workshop combines lectures with movement and experiential opportunities. I also bring my understanding of many other approaches to employ creativity and spirituality to enhance the journey.

During a recent evening class at Seattle School of Body-Psychotherpy we were experiencing a little creative relief from the more difficult Core Energetics curriculum we were learning during the day. We were exploring the healing potential of the Imaginal Realm through Dream Theater. One of the students volunteered her puzzling dream of teaching yoga in the military where her students were dressed in army uniforms and donning military behavior. Through a dramatic re-enactment of the dream, a whole lot of laughter, and some feedback from the players, we were all able to experience the magic of tapping into larger forces of healing potential all around us.
The last day of the week another student brought our yoga teacher an extraordinary gift. More than 6 months previously he had seen a crowd funding campaign quite out of the range of his normal interests that he ended up contributing to. Although he had no idea what he would do with it when he received it, for many months he wondered when he would finally get the merchandise that he paid for in supporting the new company. When our yoga teacher chose to work on this particular dream in class he had a hunch it would be coming soon and sure enough, when he got home that night there was a package waiting for him.
The student had invested in these wonderful, joyful and kind of ridiculous “Yoga Joe’s”. Yep, you read it right! On the last day of class he gave our yoga teacher a quirky gift that reinforced the concept I was teaching of the Golden Thread, the “attentive noticing of the Soul” where we seek to follow the inspirational patterns that run through our lives and beckon us to live our truest self.
I think we all found this to be a perfect synchronicity, an inspiring and playful nod from the universe for our time together!
