|The Inner Attitude: Bodywork in the Framework of Transpersonal Psychotherapy|
Facilitator: Rainer Pervöltz
All human beings live with a basic polarity of motion and tranquility. If this polarity is in balance, life is mostly experienced as good. With many of us, however, the balance is disturbed, so that, on the one side, tranquility can turn into lethargy, depression, and lack of drive; and motion into stress, effort, restlessness, and fear.
Around this distorted polarity, every person develops their own story, which follows its own and often strange logic. The story expresses itself continuously in physical postures and attitudes (in German we have one word for both: Haltung). Since we incorporate those Haltungen automatically, we are, most of the time, not conscious of them. Surprisingly enough, it is not so terribly difficult to make them conscious – and this will be the subject of the seminar.
Once you understand with the cells of your body that it’s not what happens that constitutes the quality of your life, but the attitude by which you encounter what happens, you start to step out of your personal story and its endless repetitions. The seminar will be a combination of body and transpersonal therapy.
