The Biodynamic Clinic offers low cost treatments, with a qualified supervisor present, from apprentice practitioners who enter a Voluntary Service Agreement during training. Apprentice biodynamic practitioners can work under supervision in all Biodynamic Clinics.

After practitioners have gained adequate experience in this model, and have been seen to fulfil professional standards of practice, they can apply to register a place of practice, which can be in their own home if a clear space is provided, or in an established centre, in either case, approved by the Professional Standards Committee. They can then begin to practice independently, and meet in regular supervision groups.

Testimonials

"My training helped me to feel my emotions, allow them, articulate them, and clarify my position in staying with them. I began to feel connected to the world in a new and energetic way. It helped me to get beyond my neurotic self. It facilitated my experience of energetic pulsation and rhythm."
