Educational Workshops

Radix® Educational Workshops teach participants, in an in-depth way, about the energetic viewpoint of psychological and physical dynamics (and their interrelationship), the functional identity between mind and body and the role of the body in the process of personal growth.

The curriculum includes the history of the energetic concept, basic bioenergetic principles, reading the body, techniques for mobilizing energy and expressing feelings, and understanding the developmental process in relation to character structure. Teaching methods will be experiential, didactic, and individual study.

The goal of training in Radix is to give workshop participants the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Radix® Bodywork, and to incorporate the theory and techniques their own practice. The excellence of the training is dedicated to the premise of the underlying unity of the mind and body as it reflects our personality and our unconscious, and that strong transformation is rooted in working with the body.
