Biodynamics | Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy –
Method and Training

Our training is aimed at all those who have a sincere interest in human beings, a deep respect for their uniqueness and a willingness to enter into real contact with other people.
It is based on the psychological principle that we can best absorb and integrate knowledge through our own experiences, insights and insights.
We have therefore deliberately chosen a form of learning process in which our students are alternately both “clients” and “therapists” from the very beginning. This creates a constant interaction between experiencing and understanding, between outer knowledge and inner awareness.
The training at our Institute is the original and only training in Biodynamic Psychology, much of which is conducted personally by the co-founders and long-time training directors of the method, Ebba and Mona Lisa Boyesen.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Individual Therapy

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy works holistically on the mental, psychological and physical levels.
Many psychological and physical problems are not accessible through conversation alone, but can be made conscious through access to the body. This enables a reconnection to the original feeling and the related conflicts from childhood. Better body awareness and increasing clarity set in. Only when we know where something comes from can we change it in a sustainable way.
Both physically and mentally, we work with what is current for the client. We use perception and body exercises, breathing techniques, inner images, therapeutic massages, work with the inner child and with inner conflicts – and of course also the therapeutic conversation. In this way, stressful events can be gradually processed. Feelings of relaxation and aliveness set in. We feel at home in our own body again and with it the feeling of well-being returns, which is the right of every human being to live.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Deep Muscle Work Deep Draining.

What happens in this posture “Hard shell, soft core” Our feelings are locked in the core and our muscles strengthen and harden into a hard shell. The aim could be to create balance between inside and outside so that a permanent change in posture can take place. Through biodynamic massage and body psychotherapy according to Gerda Boyesen, the individual layers are melted through deep muscle work. Impulses that have been held back for a long time come to the surface and make vitality possible. One could say that with a muscle armour I am not so vulnerable, yes that is true, only the feelings petrify, like the outer costume in which they are stuck. If we protect the inner parts through the muscles and the tissue, you experience a permanent tension and a strain on the whole system. In today’s society, the realisation is coming closer and closer that it is precisely the soft core that is being given more attention again. We can also assume that our supposed weaknesses are actually our strengths.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Reflections on Stress

We often hear of stress in connection with feelings of being overtaxed, and more recently also of stress due to being underchallenged – boredom. Stress can occur due to pressure of expectations and looking to the future. Biodynamic psychology meets stressed people lovingly, mindfully, processually and accompanies people on their way to the fullness and serenity they long for.

“There are only two days in the year when you can do nothing. One is yesterday, the other tomorrow. This means that today is the right day to love, to believe and, first and foremost, to live.” (Dalai Lama)

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Boundaries

As a rule, we all have a sense of our private and intimate sphere and thus of what we feel comfortable with in our immediate environment, or what comes too close to us or where coherent boundaries are crossed. We can feel these boundaries, they relate to the three-dimensional space around us. They can be thought of as a bubble, and depending on how big or small this bubble is, the space it encompasses represents our personal space of well-being. The boundaries of this space act as a buffer between us and the outside world and help us regulate our interactions with other people and the world.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Relationships

In our relationships with other people we live out what we have learned and experienced ourselves in our previous development and history – both positively and negatively.
If old hurts and offenses from our childhood have not been processed and healed, they can become very obstructive in our relationships.
Biodynamic therapy can be very supportive here.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Loneliness

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy addresses important current issues. More and more people in our society feel lonely and suffer from a lack of contact with other people and with themselves. In our work we show possible ways to re-establish this contact.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – About “Nourishing”.

In our work there is a very important principle that we call “re-feeding”. Anything that we did not experience or learn in our childhood can leave us with feelings of lack. Or that we simply cannot do something because we had too little or no opportunity to practise it. The biodynamic principle of re-nurturing enables clients to relive and integrate missing experiences in a safe and secure environment.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Self-Regulation

In our work we pay a lot of attention to the theme of self-regulation, because this is our innate ability to be able to behave physically, emotionally, and socially at any time without becoming unbalanced in the long term. Sometimes this ability may be buried, but still present. Often it is enough to feel very consciously into the body in such moments and thus give it time and opportunity to regain its balance. If this is not enough, there are many other good possibilities in biodynamics to work with it therapeutically.

Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy – Resources

We as human beings need sources of strength that nourish and strengthen us and help us to deal appropriately with the challenges and hurdles of everyday life. What we draw this energy from are our resources, which usually feel good and supportive. Anything can be a resource as long as you perceive it as such: e.g. motivation, goals, beliefs, values, knowledge, skills, etc. as well as physical characteristics, financial possibilities or interpersonal relationships. There is a general distinction between inner and outer resources and often we are not aware of the abundance of our resources.
