Acoustic Body Experience
Deep listening, body awareness, nature connection and self-expression
Are you longing for things to change or evolve, but don’t have the energy necessary to feel into what you really need or like?
Are you wanting to learn skills and tools that personally support your uniqueness and at the same time transforms your relationship with others and the work you do?
Then this can be a week for YOU… away from the demands of everyday life, and in a safe and supportive environment, helps you to reconnect with your inner truth and intuition and embrace your uniqueness.
This is a 7-day experiential learning retreat. It’s a hands-on experience to restore balance back into your life and let your creative juices flow by providing you with information about new research in the fields of somatics and neuroscience.
You’ll learn easy strategies for:
Reducing the overall stress response of your body, which automatically turns on the body's self-healing and relaxation response.
Helping the body digest and integrate unprocessed experiences, resulting in diminishment or resolution of symptoms.
Recovering the connection to your natural source of guidance and by doing so improve the crucial skill of decision-making.
Accessing a door entry into the subconscious and work with what has been hidden, which can assist you in reaching your whole potential.
We will take many of our practices outdoors as a way of cultivating an embodied, sensory awareness that supports insight and growth as well as profound connection with the natural world. This deepening of awareness opens us to profound experiences of interconnectedness and wholeness.
The Retreat Syllabus
Self-care — foundational work of understanding our psychosomatic needs and attending them.
Attention — learning about the brain’s default mode network and understanding attention as a gateway to the rest of the cognitive processes associated with the human mind (decision-making, memory, emotion, etc).
Interconnectedness & connection — experiential understanding of the interconnectedness of all things and beings, and the importance of cultivating conscious connections.
Silence — self-contemplation of silence.
Wholeness — claiming back and integrating lost or unknown parts of the Self.
Self-expression — trusting and daring to be authentic.
Limits & boundaries — respecting, accepting and honouring life’s limitations and boundaries.

TESTIMONIALS FROM the LAST RETREAT
For professional interest
This 7-day retreat can be taken as a stand-alone course for those who would like to go deeper into their inner being but it also is the Module I of the Acoustic Body Practitioner Training. This retreat does not qualify you to practice the Acoustic Body approach yet as a certified practitioner, but it is the first step towards achieving the certification.
If you would like to move on to the second module of the Acoustic Body Practitioner Training after completing the Acoustic Body Experience retreat, you must complete and send to the co-directors of the training the following within 3 months after the retreat:
Written, recorded or video tapped report of your experience of the Acoustic Body Experience retreat in great detail.
Documented practice sessions of 3 given assignments.
Written, recorded or video tapped report of your vision on how, where and with whom would you like to use the Acoustic Body approach.
The Module I certificate with the additional tasks and support costs 270€ on top of the retreat cost. It includes a 1 hour private video call to discuss the assignments, feedback and answer any questions. In this way the practitioner can best integrate the Module I and start preparing for the consequent Modules II and III.
