Body Security System Repair Classes and Retreats




Your perception and your physiology

are at the foundation of your creation of reality.


Learn how to change your life through somatic practices.


Brigit has learned very many healing principles and exercises in thousands of hours of health- and trauma-related foundation programs, continuing education, bodywork practice, and martial arts training.


So far they have only been shared with private clients, or students in her professional training program. For the first time now she will open class doors to all interested in healing.


Due to the intimate nature of the work, the number of participants is limited in each of these 1-2-day gatherings. Please sign up for the next round if the one you are hoping for is full!


This is presence and awareness-oriented somatic practice.  You will want a foundation in some mindfulness, stillness and self-development before attending.

**If you don’t want to be touched by a classmate with these simple bodywork or Aikido-informed practices, no problem, feel free to invoke spirit to be your partner for the exercises. Alternately, you can work with a partner in the class, and request not to be touched. Attention, used well, can be as powerful as touch. We will have some assistants and Alchemical Alignment students and graduates in the room, but cannot promise one will be available to work with you individually.
