A Bioenergetic Experiential Workshop at the Newport Beach Resort
April 6 2012 - April 8, 2012
This workshop will be held in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Bioenergetic Analysis offers effective tools in our therapy endeavors to work with and resolve our conflicts and to connect to our Authentic Self. By exploring our mind-body split, we are able to contact and to express our deepest emotions, fears and wishes in a powerful manner. This process is deepened through the presence of a safe, respectful and supportive group, united in the pursuit of greater joy and peace in living. Through our willingness to explore ourselves and to experience our vulnerability, we grow stronger.
This workshop, offered to both mental health professionals and individuals interested in Bioenergetics, will focus on the physical dynamics of a person's personality struggles, character structure and frustrations in living. Bioenergetic Analysis offers an additional approach to verbal psychotherapy and psychodynamic science with which to understand and treat emotional problems. When woven together with psychodynamic intervention and analysis, greater opportunity exists to be of help to others in their quest for self understanding, freedom, and in their capacity for joy and contentment.
Bioenergetic Analysis was pioneered by Dr. Alexander Lowen in the late 1950's. It represents his personal understanding and development of Wilhelm Reich's unique contribution to psychoanalytic theory and technique including character analysis and physical interventions. Reich included the body as a part of the treatment process in his further development of Freud's energetic concepts. Reich viewed internal conflict, narcissism, lack of self hood, and impulsivity, as examples of conditions of health and dysfunction expressing themselves in our somatic functioning. Chronic muscular tensions, poor breathing patterns, and fixed overall attitudes of holding lead to reduced capacity to surrender to feelings, and life. Reich and Lowen’s expansion of Freud’s energetic point of view offers new ways of understanding psychotherapy treatment.
The workshop will be held at the four star Newport Beachside Resort at 16701 Collins Ave Miami Beach, Florida. The Newport Beachside Resort is on a beautiful white sand beach, has a heated exquisite pool, and gourmet dinning.

The three day format will give participants many opportunities to experience bodywork Bioenergetic psychotherapy as pioneered by Dr. Alexander Lowen with emphasis on group processing and individual work with learning opportunities.
