Alchemical Alignment: Bodywork for Trauma Resolution and Embodiment of Spirit
Next training begins in Silver Spring, MD, May 2018.
There is a new paradigm in working with health and trauma. Join our three-level training program, Alchemical Alignment: Bodywork for Trauma Resolution and Embodiment of Spirit, to learn a leading edge healing system that works.
Are you a bodyworker or other healing arts practitioner working with people who say that they have had a trauma, like an accident or a surgery, or interpersonal difficulty, and things have not been the same since then? When working with people, do you find underlying body history issues pop up, but you are not sure how to proceed? They might be experiencing any number of hot or cold, charged or flat, subtle or intense symptoms, or an underlying sense of not feeling like themselves.
We work with undigested life experience which is creating difficulty in present time. This can have occurred at any time: from before conception through gestation, birth, early attachment (pre and perinatal times), childhood, teen years and adulthood.
Now that cutting edge science and therapeutic processes are all proving the body bears the burden, consumers are turning to those who work with the body to find relief. Training in theory, verbal skills, and hands-on application, however, is at the leading edge of understanding, and is not so easy to find.
The body expresses its story in present time -- this is not a regressive therapy. We consciously create conditions for change, and the body brings unfinished issues to the foreground to transmute them. The body has its own innate wisdom, and capacity, regarding the pace at which this happens.
You as a student practitioner learn to work with the felt sense of health first, and then the waves of information that the body provides -- among which are fight, flight and freeze symptoms.
In class we practice specialized touch and attention skills, and unique verbal skills.
The subtle yet profound skills of this course will change your perceptions of healing work. Powerful in its simplicity, Alchemical Alignment brings a potent new paradigm to the world of trauma resolution and embodiment of spirit.
Once we have worked with the symptoms on a causal level, the body shifts. Often people experience light, warmth, or vibration moving through their bodies, ending up with a feeling of fluidity or wholeness. We witness "Embodiment of Spirit." For example, it is possible to feel areas of chronic physical and emotional pain and tension melt away, the body balance itself right to left, top to bottom, back to front, or to have empty parts fill in again. Alternately, people report inner awakenings, like an increase in sensory and felt sense awareness; feeling Self, more insight, spiritual awareness, compassion and clarity; finding their voice and boundaries; letting go of shame and grief; connecting with peace, relaxation, grounding and vitalitylike never before; finding an embodied understanding of health and connection, and more. It is such a joy to witness the spirit and the body come into alignment.
We move from solid form to fluid, to Original order, to a new solid form, into new potential. This work changes Law of Attraction set points. For your comfort, you will want a foundation in some skill before you come to this intermediate to advanced-level class, whether it is mindfulness, intentional work, self-development, bodywork or other therapeutic skills. Stillness practices and high-level self care greatly enhance your learning.
Join us if you are on the path to becoming more regulated, embodied and empowered, and interested in the science, art and magic of this kind of practice.
*Each participant will be asked to continue to work within the scope of their current practice.
All practice work in class will be done with bodies clothed, while standing, seated or lying on treatment tables.
The first level of training is appropriate for practitioners working with the health of the body, mind and/or spirit. Students have mostly been bodyworkers who would like to explore and develop verbal and hands-on craniosacral/fascial/polarity skills, and mental health practitioners interested in
touch, spoken bodywork (verbally working with physiology) and autonomic nervous system skills. For Levels 2 and 3, a minimum of one year in full-time practice (2-3 years part time) is requested.
Somatic Experiencing students and practitioners will benefit from touch skills and pacing skills unlike those taught in SE trainings. Biodynamic Cranial students and practitioners will benefit from learning to work with activation on purpose.
