The Impassioned Body-Mind Workshop: vitality, eros and health.  Join us on an adventure to discover your innate vitality , eros and pleasure through the practice of mindfulness, embodiment, and the energizing element of disturbance.

This highly experiential workshop provides participants with an in-depth exploration of our fundamental need as human being s to grow beyond our limited sense of being, and to recover the zest for life we once had.

Most of us have learned that our exuberance , our joy and curiosity were not received well by the adult world, which did not grant us the love and care we needed. We therefore found strategies to adopt, to hold back, and to restrain in exchange for feeling loved and cared for.  We now often exchange vitality, curiosity and eros with the functionalities of daily activities, and thus find ourselves lacking passion.

In this workshop, we provide participants with a meaningful and practical body-mind approach to working through and healing these issues, which keep us from stepping into the fullness of our embodied vitality and Eros. We will do this through the deep and d irect experiencing of the awakening Body Self.

We will explore the healing function of energetic disturbance and how to make use of it. Living systems need to be disturbed in order to change. Disturbance comes through the ability of the individual to feel and think differently from others, and to bring this different-ness into relationship.

The ability to be a disturbing force for another provides the client with a sense of support through being seen and directly engaged, while at the same time being challenged to take risks, and lean into new potential, in ways that are unlikely to come from within themselves.

Throughout this workshop, participants will be introduced to various methodologies of PsychoEnergetics , our uniquely crafted body-mind approach to process work and depth facilitation. 

Our work is designed to engage practitioners in the depths of their psyches while having a lived, energetic experience in the body.   We do this through embodiment experientials, mindfulness meditations, p resencing e xercises and depth facilitation dyad sessions.

We will also explore ways to work directly with the Body Self of another, and intervene on the constraining nature of our limiting belief systems. Most importantly, practitioners will have the opportunity to develop a sense of their own ‘ embodied mindfulness’ as a healing presence.  

This workshop is for professional practitioners and therapists from various healing modalities, as well as those with a sincere interest in furthering their own personal development.

PSEN Training has helped me to get in touch with both my vitality and humanity. Through depth encounters, I have learned it's safe to be vulnerable and take in nourishment in relationships. This has been a precious jewel that has been informing my life in new ways ever since -  John W, North Carolina, US 

“This training helped me to grow bit by bit, own my authentic power, hence become more of my true self in the softest and kindest way I could imagine of. Being held in compassion and kindness thought these four years of PSEN work was especially what I needed, and it is the reason why I could allow my self to learn and grow the way I did. I am extremely grateful to the team, to the work and my wonderful friends. We did it all together  - Asli Atay, Istanbul, Turkey
