ONE DAY WORKSHOP

Alfred Adler described Intimacy as a key life task!  Intimate relationships can be both the source of our greatest joy and our deepest distress.  Paradoxically it can be with the people to whom we are most attached that we find it hardest to maintain intimacy. The aim of this workshop is to: provide a basic…

THE CONCEPT OF BODILY ENERGY

INTRO The idea that the human body possesses a kind of invisible force field (which can be described as energy) is not a new one.   We can feel energy in certain parts of body if we breathe fully, using deliberate bodily tension to ‘open’ ourselves.  Bio-energetic exercises were invented to liberate some of these physical…

SEXUAL ENERGY AS A FREEING PROCESS

There exist, today, entire schools of ‘therapy’ built around the concept of body energy.  The roots for these lie in ancient Taoistic practises where routines such as the Sets of Nines and Injaculation revolved around the concept of the body being in possession of points of energy – meridian points.   I write the word ‘therapy’…

FINAL PAGE – THE MORALITY OF LIVING FOR AGES

If men and women look forward to a future where healthier living conditions, improved medicine, and surgery allow them to live out their natural life span, (guessed to be at around 120 years,) where does that leave the human race?  Picture a world where thousands of people live till 120 and imagine the deaths and…

Over two thousand years ago, in China, Taoist philosophists perceived that the deer, noted for its long life and strong reproductive activities, exercised its anus when it wiggled its tail.  Putting two and two together they developed a ‘tail-wiggling’ concept for man – which they called the Deer Exercise.  These movements are believed to rejuvenate…

CHAPTER TWO

At this, our second meeting, the women flock in and already the atmosphere is lightening up.  After years of running small groups I know now that each group possesses an individual flavour.  Very occasionally there will be one that seems tremendously difficult and I end up feeling as though I’m wading through treacle.  It only…

THEORY

FACTS ABOUT GETTING OVER DEPRESSION A third of all people with depression get over it spontaneously with no outside help In comparisons between depressed subjects being treated with drug therapy or with talking therapy, both groups responded positively.  CHECK If there are indications that hormone problems may be involved, many gynaecologists would prefer that the…

CHAPTER ONE

The best groups I’ve run have met in my workroom.  This lair is a mixture of  playroom, work station, television viewing room, guest room.  It lets the women who attend such meetings feel a lot more comfortable than at some impersonal hall which is too big for intimacy.  Feelings of comfort are at a premium…
