Structure of the training:

After successfuly completing the basic training trainees can sign up for the advanced training (third year, 3 blocks, with certification to work as a professional).
Content of the Training Program:
The basic training consists of three stages:
First stage: “Opening“
This firs stage is an introduction to the art of touch.
By touching each other we becom aware of out holding patterns, and often of our lack of touch. We will also be introduced to basic techniques of deep bodywork, such as deep tissue work, joint-release and breath-work.
We open up and relax the superficial layers of our body-mind armor. We will get to know our breathing-pattern as our main source of life energy. We will experience, how we limit our aliveness and joy of life by restricted breathing.
While our breath deepens and the energy-leve begins to rise, we work with releasing and integrating our legs.
We experience, what it means to become more grounded, to gain a deeper
“under-standing” of ourselves.
Rooted in our grounding we work the sides of the body and open up to our feelings and their expression through our arms and hands.
We become aware of our patterns of how we relate to the world around us, in particular our (in)ability to give and receive.
- basic knowledge in structural and functional anatomy
- principals of bodyreading
- anatomy of the shoulder-girdle, ribcage and legs
- open group-sharings to process what comes up
- bodyawareness training
- Introductory exercises to train our “hara-awareness“
- Introduction to active meditationstechniques, which support integration of changes into every-day-life.
Second stage: “ Discovering The Core“
While we have been working with the superficial layers(“sleeve“) of the body in the first stage, we are now able, to contact deeper structures, which we call the “core”.
In here we discover our emotional, cognitiv and energetic patterns, which were formed mostly by early-childhood conditioning.
The outer, “extrinsic” structures of the body, surrounding the core relate to so-called
“action-function”, as opposed to “being-functions” of the core, such as inner strength, aliveness and alertness.
- Learning extended techniques of deep bodywork
- structural and functional anatomy of the core-structures
- understanding the core-sleeve-relationship
- theory and practise of the neoreichian approach
- basic principles in working with the “inner child“
- releasing and balancing the pelvis as a base of structural and functional balance
- exploring our sexual energy via the breath and activating the core-muscles of the pelvis
- understanding our relating-patterns
- deepening the experience of “Grounding”
- Connecting our center of gravity to the „inner Line of support“
- open group-sharings to communicate and deepen our experiences
- further developing our “hara-awareness“
- deepening meditation
third stage: “Integration“
In the previous two stages we were working with opening the “sleeve” and got in touch with our “core”. In this last stage we are introduced to the integration of the core-sleeve-relationship. We explore its structural, functional and energetic aspects.
Integration is the experience of being “whole” and is rooted in perceiving yourself in your totality: feeling with an open heart and being the master of a clear, quiet mind.
An integrated body is like an open channel, allowing a harmonious flow of energy to pass through.
- refining and deepening methods of deep bodywork
- body-awareness and movement-education
- working with specific structural-functional imbalances
- the therapist-client-relationship
- beyond technique: finding your own style (intuitiv integration)
- contacting the „inner healer“
- Feedback sharings
- applying hara-awareness in our work
- integration of action-and being-functions and energetic integration
While the basic training teaches the trainee all necessary technical abilities and skills to practise Osho Rebalancing® the advanced training aims at professionally applying this in the work with the client.
Working successfully and responsably demands a great deal of self-reflexion on the part of the therapist in order to reach a maximum of clarity in the relationship with the client.
- Basic principles of R. Kurtz` Bodyoriented Psychotherapy
- The therapist-client relationship
- The mechanism of „Transference and Countertransference”
- Theory of R. Kurtz` Bodytypes and its practical application
- Working with specific structural-functional dysfunctions
- Communication with the client
