What is Bioenergetic Alchemy?

Bioenergetic Alchemy™ is a body-mind approach to psychological, physical and emotional health and well-being. These classes are a unique movement experience, where we begin to soften the muscular tension and chronic holding in our bodies through a series of gentle stretches, grounding and self-expression exercises. Relieving stress, enhancing our emotional well-being and sense of self and beginning to open our heart to life.

"My classes follow a format of checking in with the body, warm-ups, grounding and building the body's energy, then discharging the energy through movement and expression. This is followed by relaxation. The immediate result is a felt sense of security, vibrancy and exhilaration." - Seth Newman

In our classes you will earn to ride the waves of feelings and emotion without getting lost in the rapids...

At the personal level, the highly experiential nature of Bioenergetic Alchemy™ is a catalyst for transformation, as participants work in the laboratory of their own process and their relationship to others. The work opens the heart, brings grounded empowerment to the personality, and a deeper connection to the Core; centre of your authentic self and Divine essence.

More about Bioenergetic Alchemy™
Bioenergetic Alchemy™ uses energy, movement, breath and inter-personal relationships to create consciousness about who you truly are. You become aware of the ways in which you hold yourself back from living a deeply fulfilling life. One way we all inhibit ourselves is by blocking our energy - and our emotions - in parts of our body. By learning how to move the energy in your body, you learn to free your emotions (e-motions) and to get in touch with all your feelings. When you loosen these local blocks, your experience of your entire body changes.

Clients say they have become more alive, powerful, joyful, daring…

Bioenergetic Alchemy™ is a creative, dynamic and very fun way for you to experience fully the creativity, dynamism and joy of your own life energy!

Our Trance Dance Journeys are an opportunity to bring awareness to, and transform any limiting patterns or fears that are causing blocks to you living "the life you dream to live"! It is a path to vitality & health and creates a space for you to release and transmute any patterns that prevent you from living life to your fullest potential! "WHAT IS TRANCE DANCE?" Traditional Trance Dance has its roots in ancient shamanic traditions, it has been practiced for more than 35 thousand years in various tribes & cultures around the world as a medium of altering consciousness through dancing to powerful rhythms that help connect to our deep creative unconscious. This 'trance' state of the creative unconscious, is naturalistic and can be compared to the fluidity of play or dreams. This is where we can tap into the ocean of infinite possibilities, where true healing and clarity can take place and where insights can be found. Our Trance Dance Journey is a modern adaptation of more traditional rituals, designed for a generation of people that are part of a fast-paced world that so often gets us lost amongst its numerous distractions. We use a variety of methods to induce a creative trance state and to help deepen us into an expanded state of consciousness: 1) A Blindfold 2) A transformational breathing technique 3) A Positive intention 4) Spontaneous Dance and Intuitive body movements. Schedule: ◈ 7:30pm-7.45pm Getting Online & Welcome ◈ 7:45pm-9:15pm Trance Dance Journey ◈ 9:15pm-9.30pm Relaxation & Closing What to Prepare: 1. Loose-fitting clothes that let you move your body and free yourself. 2. Dance barefoot 3. Water and a water bottle. 4. A blindfold (Essential!) “Each of us is a moving centre, a space of divine mystery. And though we spend most of our time on the surface in the daily details of ordinary existence, most of us hunger to connect to this space within, to break through to ecstatic states of consciousness, to be swept away.” - Gabrielle Roth Come and Drop into the Dance... We invite you to drop your comfort zone and dance into the more unknown aspects of yourself! Allow yourself to go beyond the world of the five senses and open new doors and possibilities within your being. 'Dance until you shatter yourself' as the Persian poet Rumi says, surrender to the dance and trust the journey... Every time you will step into the unknown darkness you will gradually learn to surrender to the expanded state of consciousness and are likely to attain deeper experiences. Every journey is a new journey, a new opportunity to ride into yourself and beyond. With Love, Seth PLEASE NOTE: ◈ These online sessions are facilitated and DJed by Seth Newman, Seth is the pioneer of Ecstatic Dance in the UK, who with his band Urubu & Ecstatic Dance London. has been running conscious dance & sober rave events for many years. ◈ His inspiration for these events come from many sources including Humanistic & Body Psychotherapy, the Human Potential Movement, 5 Rhythms, Active meditations and from the teachings of the Indian Mystic Osho whom he grew up within India in the 1970s. Seth brings a wealth of experience holding heart-centered spaces.

Shaking, rocking, vibration and oscillation are natural human reactions to: Stress, Trauma & Ecstatic states. We inherently use oscillation as a tool to calm our nervous system. for example, think of why we rock a crying baby to sleep. The practice of Shaking is known by many: Quakers, Gnostics, Taoists, Yoginis, First Nations peoples, Sufis, Druids, Zen Buddhists and more. Shaking Medicine™ is a Self-Healing body response to trauma as it can help to clear and release blocks that cause dis-ease. After a shaking the session, the body naturally shifts to a higher vibration and the shaking brings all of the body systems into balance. Shaking Medicine™ is a wonderful way to let the body really move, shake up and release stress & tension, and bring in new fresh energy - revitalising yourself Body Heart & Soul. Shaking Medicine™ is both 1) a contemporary somatic therapy practice for grounding and mobilising the Body-Mind.

What to bring: - Loose comfortable clothes - A reusable water bottle - Yoga mat to rest on - Blindfold What to expect: This is an active meditation. It is about self-discovery, embodiment and relaxation. In our work, meditation is not concentration, but relaxation. You will simply relax into the shaking. Simply relaxing into yourself. The more you relax, the more you feel yourself open and flexible. Relaxation means falling into such a strong state where you are not doing anything, you simply relax into the shaking. The music will support the experience. We end with a relaxation stage where you are invited to lay down, relax and let your whole Body-Mind system rest. Please bring a yoga mat with you to rest on. Thank you We are inspired by teachers such as Peter Levine, Bradford Keeney, Osho, Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen, John Peirakkos, David Bercelli. The Health Benefits of Shaking One of the easiest ways to help the body release tension & stress is to shake. The simple act of shaking your body can produce a multitude of health benefits. Although it may seem simple, it is a very powerful technique. The main purpose of our Shaking Medicine classes is to relax the body and release tension. When we shake the body, we are relaxing all our joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, helping us to loosen up and feel relaxed. Shaking gently bounces our organs and stimulates our lymphatic system. Our lymphatic system is like our bodies draining system and is responsible for the removal of waste material from every cell in the body, in addition to regulating the immune system. Maintaining a healthy lymphatic system is critical if we want to be radiant and healthy.

It has really shifted something for me. This morning I keep bursting into giggles! Thank you so much to Seth and everyone else who held the space.” “Powerful stuff. Highly recommend giving it a go.” “What an incredible time I had last night! When I arrived, I was feeling very low and in my head. The Bioenergetic Alchemy session brought me back to my body and allowed me to connect to some suppressed sadness. The ecstatic dance afterwards allowed me to express my joy and freedom. I feel alive, connected and expanded. I cannot put into words my deep gratitude for this experience!!: “Really loving the sense of a developing community that’s forming from these classes.” “That was such a lovely way to spend a few hours. I feel sooo chilled out today, and the sun’s out, and it’s feeling like spring, and I’m still broke but it doesn’t feel so bad any more. It’s amazing to laugh with you all and to be part of something special. Thanks everyone, and thank you Seth xxx” PRACTICE SYSTEM The foundation of the Bioenergetic Alchemy™ 4-weekly practice system is based on the archetypal elements and the four basic feelings. Earth – Fear, Water – Grief, Fire – Anger & Air – Joy. Interwoven within these are exercises that work with our relationship with our body, and with loosening and bringing awareness to the 7 segments of body armouring. This is grounded in the theory of the 5-Character structures developed by Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen.
