Reclaim Your Gifts of Childhood: Joy, Trust, Curiosity, Connection
with Prema McKeever
No previous experience is required. This group is designed for those who wish to heal from early life experiences and to release the most unconscious layers of their personalities.
Join Prema on a unique journey to heal early-family-life conditioning. You will discover one of the foundations of BBTRS®®—how critical mind-body patterns, called “Character Structures,” imprint the story of childhood into our emotional and physical bodies. With this understanding, you will gain valuable practices for helping your clients to release trauma and create real change in their lives.
Wilhelm Reich, an Austrian psychoanalyst, identified five primary character types or structures within the human psyche that he believed dominate our personality. Each of us exhibits aspects from all five types, yet one dominant Character Structure helped us survive the challenges of our childhood.
Healing Developmental Trauma
Healing Developmental Trauma is a deep exploration of these stages of our development, and the Structures formed when our core needs were not met in childhood: safety, trust, healthy boundaries, respect for our needs and individuality, and emotionally attuned connection and support. The resulting developmental disruption or trauma is “hard-wired” into our body and nervous system. This wiring creates an energetic and somatic “armor” that shapes our bodies and obstructs the flow of life-force energy. This hard-wired program strongly affects our behaviors, beliefs, and personality—all beneath our conscious awareness. The armour becomes a default program operating in the unconscious background, informing us about how to live our lives. But we operate from a posture of trauma.
In this experiential group, we will re-connect with the language of our bodies, exploring each Character Structure as a pathway for embodiment and personal growth. We will take a profoundly loving look into our childhood experiences to witness how our needs were met and not met, what we learned about boundaries, autonomy, safety, trust, connection, shame, and self-worth, and how all of those are held in our bodies. We will also explore different methods to safely support the nervous system to release layers of flight/fight/freeze impulses, so that we can live in our bodies with greater ease and presence.
You will experience:
To facilitate your understanding of the character structures and the physiology of trauma, links to pre-recorded background lessons will be sent to you approximately two weeks before our group starts. They will allow you to learn the foundational material at your own pace, and will allow more time in the classroom for experiential exercises. Please come to our training having watched these videos.
DISCOUNT: 150 EUR if you combine this training with the BBTRS® In-Person Workshop in October.
