Radix Education in Feeling and Purpose

More than thirty years of continuing experiential workshops - leaders Michael Randolph and Michael Gavin

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE September 15th 2020

Our May and July and October workshops have now been cancelled because of coronavirus .

We have not formally cancelled the December workshop,

but it is hard to imagine that conditions and regulations will have changed sufficiently by then to allow it to take place.

We are examining exploring ways of offering at least the understanding and wisdom of Radix

if not - for now - the collectively lived experience of our workshops.

To find out more

Come to a Radix Workshop if you want to:

"Reach the parts” that talking therapies haven’t reached,

Wake up to the life in your body,

Enjoy heart-felt, full-bodied connection with yourself,

                                          in your relationships, and in your work.

The workshop leaders

Since 1985, London Radix Workshops have been providing an Education in Feeling. No longer based in London, we have now settled near Bransgore in the New Forest, and our Radix on the Road Programme has taken us to Edinburgh, to Derbyshire and most recently to Milton Keynes..

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.

Our inspiration

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.
