    Frederic Lowen, Executive Director of The Alexander Lowen Foundation PresentsFear and the Mind-Body Split: Fundamental to Dysfunction


    The Mind-Body Split is a term that has been around the body-psychotherapy community for decades. It refers to a disconnect between how we think, and how we feel. It describes the nature of our relationship with ourselves. If our thinking and cognitive activities, including our self-image, thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, ideologies, and behavioral motivations, do not reflect how we feel; and/or if we do not know how we feel due to repressed fear obscuring anger, sadness, hurts, humiliations, etc., that are outside our conscious awareness, then we are cut off from our own truth.

    Denials, rationalizations, over-charged mental processes, and cognitive or verbal ‘streaming,’ inappropriate acting-out, or the need for control are all symptoms of a disconnect between mind and body, or between thinking and feeling.

    My thesis is that the mind-body split is so pervasive and wide-spread, it is has become normalized, and is thereby virtually unrecognized, although it is fundamental to many, if not all psychological disorder. Not only widespread and fundamental to disorder and abnormalities. It is also fundamental to much ‘normal’ behavior, and the cumulative social dysfunction: the insanity of our culture as the exploitation of the population, and the natural resources of our beautiful world, is celebrated and championed in the name of ‘jobs and a strong economy,’ while in truth we exacerbate an unsustainable and destructive culture, and face a frightening future.

    This webinar will examine the mind-body split as a phenomenon best understood energetically, how to recognize it, and how it may effectively guide the process of body-psychotherapy as therapists work cognitively and physically to heal the disconnect, helping clients discover their own truth. Without one’s own truth, one cannot effectively judge and engage the falsity and insanity of our modern culture. The dominance of ‘fake news’ is an indication of how widespread the mind-body split is, affecting not only our clients, but our political, educational and business leaders, our friends, our families, and ourselves.

    Topics for learning and discussion:

    • Basics of the Reich energy model in psychotherapy
    • The unique role of fear in trauma
    • How to recognize the mind-body split
    • How to heal the mind-body split
    • How the mind-body split is fundamental to social dysfunction
    • Responsibilities and opportunities for body-psychotherapists


    My Bio: 

    Frederic Lowen, son of Alexander Lowen, M.D., is Executive Director of The Alexander Lowen Foundation; manager of the Lowen copyrights; and a certified bioenergetic psychotherapist, CBT.

    Living with and raised by Alexander Lowen, founder of Bioenergetic Analysis and student of Wilhelm Reich, Frederic has long term and extensive experience in Bioenergetics and Bioenergetic therapy, from workshop and training attendance since 1966. Frederic seeks to expand the visiblity, appreciation, and use of Bioenergetics and body-psychotherapy. Bioenergetics offers a powerful and unique way to heal the widespread mind-body split, the fundamental goal of psychotherapy. Largely un-recognized, the mind-body split afflicts individuals and populations around the world, creating individual and social dysfunction. Frederic brings his varied problem-solving skills to the task.

    As a Bioenergetic psychotherapist with a unique background in small-business, Frederic integrates economics, business, psychotherapy and Bioenergetics to understand and mitigate individual and collective dysfunctional behaviors and attitudes in his clinical therapeutic work, and as Director of the Foundation’s efforts to promote Bioenergetics, body-psychotherapy, and social healing. In addition to operating the non-profit Alexander Lowen Foundation, Frederic is Manager of LowenCorp Publishing LLC, a holding company for the Lowen copyrights.

    Aylee Welch, founder of the Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy, Presents, "The Body’s Cycle of Learning And The Use Of Expression in Body-Psychotherapy: A Clinical Approach To Addressing the Split in the Somatic Community."

    Since the birth of the field of psychology in the west practitioners have investigated the role of the body in creating and maintaining psychological difficulties and the patterns manifested in people’s lives.

    For the last 90 years body-inclusive approaches to psychology have been fringe and controversial, but through persistence we are now seeing somatic psychotherapy become "cutting edge". Yet many in the field today, even those without experience with what they are addressing, are disparaging of the history and practices of cathartic expression and the work that that brought us here.

    Outlining clinical details you can apply to each therapy session, this webinar explores the role of energy in the body and in the patterns of people’s lives and addresses important questions of the what, when, where, how and why regarding the use of expression in somatic work. This workshop will bring together essential understandings from both the provocative ways of working and the contemporary sciences of neurobiology and trauma theory.

    About the presenter:

    Aylee Welch, LICSW is a master therapist and the Director of Seattle School of Body-Psychotherapy.  Her teaching and supervision emphasizes Core Energetics that incorporates contemporary neurobiology and trauma theory. 

    She has been a therapist and educator for over 30 years working in many settings and with a wide variety of populations, and in private practice with a focus on combining group and individual work.  Her unconventional life path and her experience as a  community herbalist & a Ceremonialist inform and enhance her work and inspires and shapes the program at Seattle School of Body- Psychotherapy.  Additionally, she is a regular contributor for Somatic Psychotherapy Today.

    Shame and Aging
    with Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP, BCC

    Saturday, July 20, 10am–6pm & Sunday, July 21, 10am–5:30pm

    In Berkeley, just off the I-80

    $350 full price / $325 with full payment by June 15

    Special price for interns

    13 CE Credits — CAMFT CE provider #134393

    We all go through it. No one is immune. And nothing produces more universal shame in our society than aging. Whereas many societies have deep respect for people as they age and see a vital role for elders, our society still worships youth—still idealizes the Pepsi generation.

    In this workshop, we will explore and learn to be more comfortable with our own aging process. And we will explore ways to help clients talk about, explore and heal their own shame around aging. We will:

    • Discover ways to help clients become aware of the many messages they received and continue to receive about aging and body image from family and society.
    • Learn ways to help clients cope with the shame of not being able to do all that they once did.
    • Understand counter-shaming techniques to help ourselves and our clients find pride and joy in the new reality—seeing that there are real gains as well as losses in this new stage of life.
    • Work with the shame that can cause and result from sicknesses and injuries.
    • Identify challenges in being looked at as unimportant and “not up to par” by a youth-oriented society and the layers of shame that can occur.
    • Discover how to make the necessary adjustments so we can regain access to the life force and creativity that we still have in a grounded and embodied way.

    Click here to register. Or please visit the Schedule page at www.CenterforHealingShame.com.

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    For details about our complete training program in Healing Shame, visit our website. You can also check out articles and free Healing Shame webinars.

    NARM Practitioner Training – Evanston, Illinois MODULE 1

    July 24, 2019

    Heartwood – Evanston, Illinois

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).  

    For more information: www.narmtraining.com


    Course Objectives:

    • A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).
    • How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
    • The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.
    • Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.
    • Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psychobiological symptoms.
    • How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.
    • When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.
    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.
    • A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.
    • A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    ISP PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, MODULE 1

    Still Waters Retreat - Austin, Texas

    Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training, Module 1: The Physiology of Emotions. One can take module one before committing to modules two and three.

    The Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training (ISP):  Improving outcomes and shortening treatment times in all therapy modalities (including those already body-oriented) through greater embodiment of a larger range of emotions.

    What is ISP?

    Are you interested in improving outcomes and shortening treatment times in your practice?

    New evidence-based theories of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive psychology and neuroscience offer the possibility of improving outcomes and shortening treatment periods in all therapies including those that are already body-oriented such as Somatic Experiencing (SE).

    Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP), has been developed by Dr. Raja Selvam on the basis of findings in these emerging and exciting scientific paradigms, on over a hundred years of research on the physiology of emotions, on findings from multiple body psychotherapy approaches on various physiological defenses against emotions, and on principles of energy psychology.

    ISP offers therapists in all modalities a complementary approach to improve cognitive, emotional, behavioral, physical, energetic, relational, and spiritual outcomes in all therapies through fuller embodiment of a larger range of emotional experiences including the always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions that can be readily found in almost every clinical situation.

    Who can benefit from ISP?

    ISP is for experienced clinicians engaged in psychological work with individuals or groups in therapeutic practice or teaching. If you are a psychologist, psychiatrist, marriage and family therapist, social worker, professional counselor, psychiatric nurse, or art, movement and breath therapist, coach, bodyworker, energy worker, psychology trainer and educator, clergy, meditation and spiritual teacher, you will find the training valuable in your clinical practice or professional education work that involves psychological processing.

    What is covered in ISP?

    We will study the findings on how cognition, emotion, and behavior depend not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment; how cognition, emotion, and behavior are inter-related in the physiology of the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment; and how emotion and the body’s involvement in emotion are important for improving cognition, emotion, and behavior. We will also study the older and newer findings on the physiology of emotions in depth in relation to the physiology of self-regulation in the brain and the body. We will study about defenses against emotions in the quantum body of the individual as well as in the connections between the individual and collective psyches. We will study and practice clinical strategies that can potentially help all therapies to improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in their work by involving the body more in the embodiment of a broader range of emotional experiences (primary, secondary, and always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions).

    Module One will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature of the legs, the arms, and the head and neck areas in the body. In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, introductory work with two layers of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named ether and air, will be presented.

    Module Two will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature and diaphragms in the torso as well as through the autonomic nervous system and the organs, glands, and blood vessels governed by it. The topic of inter-personal resonance, its scientific basis, how to use it, and its value in emotional embodiment as well as attachment work will be covered.  In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, how to work with four layers of the quantum level subtle body introduced in part one, metaphorically named ether, air, fire, and water, will be presented.

    Module Three will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the physiology of the brain, spinal cord, and the structures that surround and protect them (cerebrospinal fluid, membrane, bone, fascia, tendon, ligament, muscle. An optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, how to work with another layer of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named earth, will be presented. Another optional topic for the consideration of participants, how to work to connect the individual psyche to various levels of the collective psyche to further improve emotional embodiment, will also be presented.

    ISP Module 1 Objectives:

    1.    To be able to describe the ways in which cognition, emotion, and behavior have been found to be dependent not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment.

    2.    To be able to describe the ways in which cognition, behavior, and emotion have been found to be inter-related in the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment.

    3.    To be able to describe the importance of emotion and the body’s involvement in emotion for improved cognition, emotion, and behavior.

    4.    To be able to describe how the greater use of the body as a container for regulating emotions can improve cognition, emotion, and behavior.

    5.    To be able to describe the major findings on the physiology of emotions in the brain, the body, and the body’s relationship to the environment.

    6.    To be able to describe the different ways in which the muscular system has been found to be involved in generating as well as defending against emotions.

    7.    To be able to describe specific tools (awareness, intent, expression, movement, breath, etc.) that psychotherapists can use to expand and regulate the brain and body physiology to expand and regulate emotional experience.

    8.    To be able to describe the different types or layers of emotional experience (primary, secondary, and sensorimotor).

    9.    To be able to describe the seven basic feedback patterns in the model of regulation used in the ISP approach to facilitate blood, nervous system, and energy flows in the brain and body physiology to improve physical and emotional regulation.

    10.To be able to describe how to work with the musculature in the arms, legs, and head and neck areas to expand these areas to foster greater emotional regulation.

    The Embodied Consciousness Immersion is a six-day deep dive into exploring consciousness through the lens of somatic psychology, social justice, and spirituality and is led by world-renowned somatic facilitators and leaders of applied spiritual wisdom including: Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Dr. Scott Lyons, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Dr. Rae Johnson, Dr. Theresa Silow, Rev. angel Kyodo Williams, Tara Judelle, Dr. Judith Blackstone, and Sally Kempton.

    This immersion invites participants to move beyond the research and theory of consciousness and to step directly into the felt sense of it. 

    Join us for a week of movement, meditation, lectures, yoga, and dynamic practices in both group and partner work. Throughout this immersion, we will address developmental, socio-cultural, and psychosomatic dynamics that impact our ability to experience wholeness and aliveness throughout our life. We will introduce and utilize a range of tools from Body-Mind Centering®, Somatic Experiencing, Focusing Technique, Nondual Tantric Philosophy, Embodied Flow™, Life Visioning Process, Breathwork, Realization Process®, and Hakomi method to attune to our inner landscape and help cultivate self-awareness, agency, resilience, and purpose. Ultimately, these embodied practices create and cultivate bridges of interconnection to others, ourselves, the environment, and beyond.

    This week will provide you with practical tools in working with yourself and others towards living a life in deep connection and relationship, moving us ever closer to a world that is beyond false division — one that is consciously embodied. 

     

    WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS EVENT?

    Unlike a conference, this immersion is an experiential journey, from start to finish, to guide you in working with yourself and others in this profound mind-body-spirit medicine. This world renown faculty is working together to co-create a journey for you through the processes of embodying consciousnesses. 


    ENROLLMENT

    Enrollment is limited to around 100 people to make it a really intimate event. If you enroll by June 13th, you can benefit from the early bird rate. If you would like more information about this event, please email immersion@embodiedflow.com.

    NARM PRACTITIONER TRAINING – PHOENIX, ARIZONA MODULE 1

    Wednesday, October 23 - Sunday, October 27, 2019

    Hampton Inn & Suites  – Scottsdale, Arizona

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs). 

    For more information visit: www.narmtraining.com

    NARM Practitioner Training Course Objectives:

         A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).

         How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.

         The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.

         Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.

         Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psycho-biological symptoms.

         How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.

         When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.

         How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.

         A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.

         A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    The Center for Mindful Body Awareness is offering a 6-day intensive Level 1 Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT) course.  MABT teaches therapists how to facilitate their clients’ ability to learn and develop interoceptive awareness (awareness of internal body sensations) and related skills for self-care and emotion regulation.  MABT is an evidenced-based approach that is particularly helpful for clients who are disconnected from their bodies due to stress, pain or chronic physical or mental health conditions. 

    This course is limited to 12 participants so that we can give a lot of instructional support throughout the week. Please click on these links to learn more about the Level 1 training, and registration information.
