Reich & Lowen Workshop
April 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm£35
at Essence, Hove in Brighton
Sunday April 25th; 2pm – 5pm; £35 in advance (£45 on the door). 10 Maximum Participants
Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen between them stand as the two giants of the body-based therapy scene in the Western world. In this 3 hour workshop we will do two sessions, one devoted to each.
The Lowen Session will feature an hour of Bioenergetics. We will put our bodies into a variety of different stress positions, breathe and feel and get a nice release that leaves us feeling open and grounded.
The Reich Session will be based around Reich’s theory of Segmental Armouring. Reich believed that the human body has 7 rings of tension in specific locations, each going right around the body, from the eyes to the pelvis. These rings had to be worked from the top down to allow the person to begin to experience full-body release of tensions pent-up from infancy. Lying down on a mat, I will guide you through a process of working with each of these rings in sequence.
There will be time for questions during this workshop.
Please note that this session will be socially-distanced and will not have screaming and shouting in it.
Please wear loose clothing, bring a yoga mat plus water bottle and come prepared for a deep experience.
Venue: Strawberry Room, First Floor, Essence Hove – 86 Church Rd, Hove BN3 2EB.
