Thus, if a person is depressed with thoughts of despair, helplessness and failure, his body will manifest a similar depressed attitude, evident in decreased impulse formation, reduced mobility and restricted breathing. All bodily functions will be depressed, including metabolism, resulting in lowered energy production. Of course, the mind can influence the body just as the body affects the mind. It is possible in some cases to improve one’s bodily functioning through a change in one’s mental attitude, but any change so induced will be temporary unless the underlying bodily processes are significantly changed. On the other hand, directly improving bodily functions such as breathing, moving, feeling and self-expression has an immediate and lasting effect on one’s mental attitude. In the final analysis, increasing a person’s energy is the fundamental change which the therapeutic process must produce if it is to reach its goal of freeing an individual from the restrictions of his past and the inhibitions of the present." - Alexander Lowen (Founder of Bioenergetics) Feedback from Seth's Bioenergetic Alchemy™ Classes: "This was one of the most powerful things I have done in ages. 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 in words my deep gratitude for this experience!!: "What a release. Feeling all light & open by the end!" "Highly recommended: felt tensions slip away" "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" _______________________________________________________________ If you would like to stay on for the dance/movement meditation class (8:30-10pm), you can pay just another £5.

Welcome to Bioenergetic Alchemy™

Increase your joy and pleasure and become more alive with 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

"Learn 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!
