We (Jon and Elara) are delighted and honoured to have been invited to teach the Bio-Energetics Year Long Training for The Paths of Transformation in the Czech Republic. It is a particular honour as this is one of less than 5 year long Bio-Energetics trainings worldwide.
The Path of Energy – Bioenergetics
How we embody and express our energy makes our psyche and our patterns of reactions to life visible. We hold in our bodies the energy we dared not express when we were vulnerable children, both as a tension in the muscles and as a charge of energy in the organs and connective tissue. This fixed form of expression and defence is called our character. It is our social, adapted self, and blocks and represses our spontaneous flow of life energy, our wildness, including large amounts of our sexuality and creativity.
The energy path, inspired by the work of Wilhelm Reich and the therapy developed by his students, such as bioenergetics and biodynamic psychology and massage, seeks to release old trauma, habits, and unconscious defensive attitudes and to liberate our life energy for aliveness, pleasure, and for self-actualization. It seeks to change the base of our existence from an attitude based on fear and unconsciousness to a mindfulness of our choices and an ability to express ourselves from our heart, our sex and our spirit. It includes an analysis of our own character and patterns, which we respect as a necessity for survival, an understanding of the biographical causes of our stuckness and limitations, and strategies for healing our trauma and our fears, and to find freedom of expression and creativity as an autonomous human being.
The ability to read the energy and character of others and know how to support their energy will be taught, as well as an understanding of energy movements such as contraction and expansion, penetration and enfolding, density and diffusion. As such it is an invaluable training both for oneself and as a professional resource for those working energetically with others.
The training occurs at The Centre of Transformation which is approximately 1 hour away from The Centre of Transformation where the training will be held. The nearest airport is Prague airport.
It is possible that we may be able to arrange some transport to the centre or put you in touch with others coming so that you can share taxi fares or come by public transport together.
The cost included in the ticket is just for the teaching fee. You will need to organise your own transport to get there and pay for accommodation and board in Euros at the centre when you arrive.
More information regarding how to get there, and accommodation and board charges can be found here
The training starts at 19:00 on the Wednesday night and finishes after lunch at 14:00 on the Sunday for each block. If you are booking flights then you should aim to land in Prague by at least 15:00 on the Wednesday and your return flight from Prague ideally should not be earlier than 18:00. These guidelines are provided to support you in ensuring you do not miss the start of your training or miss your return flight home.
