Our highest concern is to accompany people on their way of growth. Growth happens through working on our consciousness: on perceptions, thoughts, feelings and the individual shadow - the unconscious part of us.

Integral Bodywork

Integrales Zentrum Schauenbrug

CHF 20.00

We feel both pleasure and hurt, well-being and pain by means of our body - it grounds us in the world. In this course you will learn to get in touch with the natural intuition of your body in order to resolve muscle blockades interfering with the flow of energy. By this you will become more alive and gain a healthy feeling for your body. The role our body plays in everyday life is usually negligible. We perceive it mostly as a cause of stress: it doesn't look as good as we'd like, it hurts, stinks and so on. Our main way to navigate the world is by means of our mind or emotions, often without realising their relationship to the body. On the other hand, you've surely already experienced that physical exercise generally has a profound effect on your state i.e. your mind. In fact, body and mind cannot be separated - they are like two sides of the same coin! Integral Bodywork is based on exactly that insight. Accordingly, our body expresses our personal history and how we are currently grounded in the world in a straightforward way - physically as well as mentally. Posture, muscle tensions, mobility, power, endurance and vitality all correspond to the flow of energy throughout our body and are the result of behavioural patterns that we have been repeating for years: How we move, deal with resistance, aim for our goals, get into contact with people or touch them, how we feel and so on. By learning to listen to the wisdom of our body-intuition we get access to the most powerful compass that is available for our needs in the here and now. Our body knows exactly what it needs and wants in this very moment. However, in our culture we tend to have lost or even suppress contact to this kind of intuition through our upbringing. The goal of this course is therefore to get in touch with your body-intuition to gain more vitality, clarity and energy. We will lay out the groundwork for your own personal practice in order for you to learn sensing which exercise or activity you need at this moment. For that, a broad spectrum of techniques and exercises taken from all the major schools of gross to subtle body practices - from Bioenergetics to Hatha Yoga and Qigong. The course can be attended by anybody, no prior knowledge or experience is expected. Bring comfortable cloths in which you can move freely, as we will be mostly practising i.e. doing exercises.

Integral Sunday

Integrales Zentrum Schauenbrug

CHF 50.00

Our highest concern is to accompany people on their way of growth. Growth happens through working on our consciousness: on perception, thoughts, feelings and the individual shadow - the unconscious part of us. On the 4th Sunday of each month we take one day to get in touch with each other from the here and now in order to give space to the process of personal growth. The four modules of the Integral Life Practice: Body, Mind, Shadow and Spirit, which we will all practice on this day, will point the way. If you pay real attention to all these areas in your life, you will find it easier to stay in balance. In summary, it is about unifying all aspects of our being in a life-changing practice to find a fulfilled and meaningful life. Structure of the day (rough) 9:30 Bodywork 10:00 Coffee 10:30 Shadow work (we use techniques from Circling, Gestalt therapy, Constellation...) 13:00 Lunch 14:00 Spirit block (each with a different focus) 15:30 Bodywork 17:00 Closing time The Price includes Lunch and drinks. It's the minimum to cover the costs of the room and food. If at the end of the day you realize it's worth more to you, you're welcome to give so much more. Course instructors: Nicole "I have been practicing intensive shadow and mind work for almost three years. I started with Integral Bodywork relatively late, regular meditation has only been part of my practice for a few weeks. The effect the ILP had and have on me, my experience, my actions and my being is almost indescribable. I came to shadow work at a time when I was always struggling with depressive moods. I also went into dissociative states again and again, so as not to have to feel what was there at the moment. After an intense time I am now at a point in my life I never dreamed I could be. I have found the way to my heart. I feel love, joy, anger, sadness, pain and fear. I remain present in the here and now and enjoy life to the full. After this growing up process the way is free in the moment to venture into the depths and ups of waking up..." Reto "With good will, I can still describe the state I was in before my practice as dreaming, but definitely I was asleep. My life was mostly determined by lack of drive and orientation, avoiding my fears, droning and switching off from the world. Thanks to ILP I feel more alive and have been able to develop a holistic perspective. My path has changed from the least resistance to the successful search for abundance, energy and love. Today I can call my friends my family and have the feeling that I can finally find my place in the world". Gradlon "My search began in my mid-twenties. At that time my suffering became more and more intense. I longed for fulfillment, depth, and of course for women. But at the same time there was so much fear that paralyzed me and left me living below my potential. On my search I tried a lot from Tantra to NLP. My search ended when I came across Integral Life Practice. I can still remember the feeling very well when I signed up for the first retreat. The thought of living with strangers in a house for 6 days made me shudder! It was clear to me that it was the right thing to do, but at that time I did not know where this path would lead me. That was more than 6 years ago. I am still afraid, but I am not withdrawing anymore because of it. I have learned to accept her and to listen to what she wants to tell me. The integral approach does not conjure up problems away from you. But it gives you the tools to deal with the problems of human life in a healthy way".
