FSBA – Florida Society for Bioenergetic Analysis

An Invitation to a
Weekend Bioenergetic Workshop:

Beyond Mindfulness:

Self Possession

with Leah Benson Ed.M.

October 27-29, 2023   |   Alachua, FL

Open to All!

About this Workshop

In bioenergetics, we call mindfulness self-awareness. Self-awareness is the foundation of making the changes you want to make in your life, but it is only the beginning. 

Beyond self-awareness comes self-expression, and finally, the ultimate goal of self-possession. 

Self-possession is your capacity to move and/or hold your physical and emotional energy at the right level of intensity for the moment you are in. With increased self-possession, you can efficiently achieve your current and future goals.


This experiential workshop will increase your capacity for making the right movements at the right intensity. The tools you gain will enhance your self-possession, and the rich connections you make with group members will enliven you.

Self-possession is the capacity you want to grow – Join us for an expanding, meaningful, and fun weekend.

SAFETY POLICY: At this trying time, we must limit to attendees who show a negative Covid test 2-3 days before the event, and also test negative upon arriving to the event.
