In these sessions we will begin to explore, through talk and through experiential work, some of the fundamental concepts of Radix work in particular, and of Body Psychotherapy and Therapy in general.
These are among the topics we may touch on. The list is not a curriculum or lesson plan, more of a Tapas menu.
What these sessions are NOT
They are not for teaching you to be a Radix practitioner.
They are not teaching you techniques to apply directly in your own work with clients.
They are not sessions devoted to your own personal work, though personal issues may be touched on of course. The workshop is wholly for the personal.
What these sessions are.
They are for getting a cognitive and experiential grasp of the ideas of Reich, and his followers -especially Charles Kelley- as we use them in Radix.
They are for deepening your informed body awareness, both as a person, and - if it applies - as a practitioner.
They are for making clearer how emotional and relational processes express themselves in the body, and between bodies.
They are for exploring and expanding the ways you already think about psychological, emotional and relational issues - and even transcendental issues - in the context of embodiment.
They are for case discussion and role play - a potent form of supervision.
What we bring to the task
The two Michaels have more than twenty five years each of involvement in the London Radix Workshop programme. Each has many more years of working with people individually and in groups in a variety of ways. With a truly integrative approach, we bring training and experience from psychodynamic, humanistic, and transpersonal perspectives, as well as body focussed disciplines. We are committed to teaching by enabling experiences, rather than by just telling.
