Bodies of Inquiry:  Body-Centred Therapy Certificate Course
Instructor demonstrating body-centred psychotherapy

Our body is the vehicle through which all of life and relationships are experienced. It also acts as a great library, storing everything us; from our past experiences and habitual life patterns, to our beliefs, hopes and fantasies. Our body’s form and movement are shaped over time by all our experiences. Body-orientated psychotherapy seeks to access all of the self through the form and movement of the body.

Our bodies always convey the truth of us. Through body-oriented psychotherapy, the therapist can more directly and effectively access the full person while gently challenging and helping to transform the habitual ways of being that can keep us stuck. This course focuses on the use of inquiry with touch and movement techniques to accomplish this.

Through this comprehensive course you will expand on the knowledge and skills initially established in the Spiritual Psychotherapy Training Program.

Emphasis will be placed on:

  • Theory and philosophy supporting body-oriented therapies
  • Practical techniques to help deepen our relationship with our bodies
  • Effective inquiry through the vehicle of the body
  • Use of breath, mindfulness and touch in the therapy session
  • Learning the language of the body
  • Grounding and manifesting to help anchor our healing
  • Practicum-based learning for students
