Beyond the mind - A five-day Workshop of Biotransenergetics

10 - 14 October 2019

What it is

A Psychology of Presence: here, now, and all around.
Shamanism, Mindfulness, Spirituality & Psychotherapy.

This workshop will cover both the theory and practices of Biotransenergetics (BTE) including the Passage from the Zero, Persistency of the Contact and Mastery of the Transe.

According to BTE, the transe is that state or field that allows one to have direct contact with the Self through the felt sense, that is, our true nature and its spiritual dimension. The word transe describes a non-ordinary state of consciousness, which from a psychological perspective can be seen as an integral state of being on each of the five levels of experience: physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual.

By persisting with contact and letting it flow, our mind is emptied and false needs disappear. At the same time, different roles and masks we have built for ourselves vanish and, finally, we find ourselves again. The light appears at the end of the tunnel, just as the darkest night is always followed by the dawn.

By persisting with contact and letting go, chronic tensions in our body, depository of past traumas and current conflicts of the Ego, dissolve and life starts pulsating again in our body so that biological pulsation and healing occur.

By mastering the transe, we can "make one from two", namely, we become the other instead of working with the other, and we become the problem instead of working on it. Becoming the other creates the conditions to overcome any conflict - which is just the contraposition of two opposite forces. When we master the transe, we develop the capacity for transforming any enemy into an ally, any symptom into a message, any force into our own force.

Moreover, we can access Transpersonal Consciousness, as well as experience archetypal forces such as earth, water, air and fire, and finally harmonize with them. When we master the transe, we can find our place within the forests and the ocean, with the animals and stones, waterfalls and the moon, and experience everything as a manifestation of Unity, of God, the Big One, The Great Spirit, the Supreme Consciousness, the Matrix, The Field – however one wants to call it.

Each day of the seminar will include lectures, group discussions, in-depth experiential practices and supervised work with Biotransenergetic methods. All of these will help you learn how to effectively incorporate the use of BTE as Self-Mastery Soft Skills in your daily life or within your psychotherapy or counseling practices.

The workshop will provide:

  • Lectures on the theory, development, and practice of Biotransenergetics, maps of consciousness, non-ordinary states of consciousness, the five levels of experience, and theoretical models of psychotherapy
  • Lectures and group discussions on the Dreaming Body – a sequence of corporal practices the client performs guided by the psychotherapist, the theory of the transe state, the beneficial use of psicotranse in psychotherapy, captation (a modality of listening into the field), auto-captation, emphatic identification, and the structure and process of verbal and non-verbal communication in the practice of Biotransenergetics
  • Experiential practice of archetypal movements to improve personal awareness of proprioceptive, visceral, and kinesthetic signals, and symbolic, archetypal, and imaginal processes accompanied with drumming and breathing to intensify sensorial experience
  • Passage from the Zero, Persistency of the Contact, Mastery of the Transe, Freedom from the Known.
  • Integration through group sharing of the weekend insights, experiences, and learnings
