Radix Institute

Educational Training Workshops

Radix® Educational Workshops teach mental and physical health professionals, 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 healing and personal growth.

The curriculum includes

  • The history of the energetic concept from its European origins in psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich.
    Basic bioenergetic principles as developed by Reich and his students.
  • Reading the body – observing physiological and behavioral manifestations of the life force.
  • Techniques to mobilize energy and expressing feelings or, in people who get overwhelmed by their feelings, to ease their emotions to a tolerable level.
  • Understanding the developmental process and attachment style in relation to character structure.
  • Working with trauma and other specific issues.
  • Teaching methods are 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 healing and transformation is rooted in working with the body.

The Radix Institute offers a series of intensive training workshops in a modular format.
Modules are offered in 4 levels.

Level 1 is a 5-day introductory workshop (Module 1) designed to give a broad perspective to the various ways in which Radix views the physical, emotional and energetic aspects of a person.

Level 2 (Modules 2-6) provides more depth in understanding and application of the basic concepts to oneself as an individual and a practitioner, and to one’s clients.  The modules can be taken in any order and all are a pre-requisite for Level 3 modules.

Level 3: (Modules 7-10) This level applies the basic Radix concepts to common therapeutic and personal growth concerns with the goal of deepening one’s understanding Radix processes and ability to apply Radix theory, and to and build a bridge between Radix and other somatic and non somatic psychotherapy and personal growth approaches. A minimum of fifteen personal Radix sessions is a requirement to attend these workshops.
