Biodynamic Psychotherapy is so wide-ranging that words alone are not enough to convey its flavour. The best way to get the “feel” of biodynamic work is to experience it for yourself.


This two day workshop is designed to give you a taste of some of the ways we work, including elementary massage, and the biodynamic approach to group interaction. We also introduce some of the fundamental biodynamic concepts underlying our work. The facilitator may offer some individual work with a volunteer participant, to give further insight into the biodynamic approach.


It is a safe, friendly and helpful environment in which you can begin to explore some typical ways you respond to other people, understand the emotional significance of what is going on in your body and develop your capacity for joy and pleasure.


No previous knowledge or experience of psychotherapy is required.​
