Since 1985, London Radix Workshops have been providing an Education in Feeling. No longer based in London, we have been reaching out, in 2013 to Sardinia, and now to the New Forest, to Edinburgh, and most recently to Derbyshire .
Michael Randolph and Michael Gavin, are the workshop leaders.
The workshops include work in the group, in pairs and in individual intensives within the group.
We work with all aspects of movement and feeling with a particular focus on breathing and vision.
Our aim is to connect with what is real and alive within, and to enable you to release it and to release yourself and your potential.
Wilhelm Reich developed the concept of the muscular armour, patterns of chronic tension in the body built up over long periods of time, that block the flow of life and mutual connection.
The muscular armour represents all of our significant conflicts. It is our unexpressed grief, rage, fear, love, joy and trust, blocked and held in our musculature.
Charles Kelley, research psychologist and student of Reich, developed Reich’s ideas as "Radix Education in Feeling" adding visual energising and relaxation techniques to create Radix as a system of emotional education and body psychotherapy.
Kelley developed the unique Radix Intensive as " an adventure in feeling, an expansion of awareness, an opening of consciousness.
...The goal is growth in the capacity to experience and express deep feeling, to connect up with oneself and to contact others..."
Radix (root or source) is his term for the vital energy or force whose flow is disrupted by the body armour.
