“There is a healing mechanism in the body that dissolves nervous tension in the muscles and resolves emotional conflict on the organic and unconscious level ”. Gerda Boyesen, Founder of Biodynamic Psychology


This is an experiential two-day workshop for those interested in finding out more about the scope and benefits of the biodynamic approach, and for those who are interested in training on our 1 year or 4 year courses.

The biodynamic model is non-critical and non-judgemental and is based on a profound understanding of the natural health of the “primary personality”. Completion of cycles on the psychological and physiological levels leads to the circulation of life energy (bio-dynamic) in the cells and tissues and out into the bio-field and subtle body.

This life enhancing flow nourishes the body, building capacity and zest for life. It also nurtures the mind and spirit - which ignites our passion and renews our sense of meaning and purpose.

The biodynamic approach is a holistic and gentle, straightforward approach to health and well being on all levels. Recent research has indicated that the gut and brain are directly connected and each play a crucial role in recovery from trauma and stress, howsoever caused.

The aim of the biodynamic approach is to restore this vital relationship to its optimum function if for any reason it has become frozen. We will introduce the concept of ‘psycho-peristalsis’  - the healing mechanism in the body, and demonstrate how this function can be activated and monitored in everyday life.

Bio means life – dynamic means movement. We need to understand what happens if life energy becomes stuck or trapped for any reason.

By exploring ways to free trapped energy, we can access deeper and more satisfying experiences in everyday life. When the life energy within us (bio-energy) is liberated, it meets with the energy around us (cosmic energy) and brings a new sense of natural connection.

In this workshop there will be a gentle exploration of what our true needs are, how we can build our capacity to live wholesome and satisfying lives, and balance our work and home life. 

During the workshop we will demonstrate the use of the loudspeaker stethoscope. This monitor is used to listen to the sounds of the precise workings of the body’s healing mechanism known as ‘psycho-peristalsis’. Different sounds come in response to the application of specialised biodynamic skills.

These skills can be learned by other practitioners and applied within their current practice, or learned as part of the whole biodynamic philosophy and approach that offers a exciting new dimension in health and natural medicine. Participants will have the opportunity to experience this work through exercises in pairs and small groups.

Participants on an Introductory Weekend had the following to say:

"I learned to trust myself and to listen to the wisdom of my gut, its okay to speak my truth, to experience true freedom." "This has been a very special two days for me. I leave here with a very thankful heart."

"I found the workshop delightful and inspiring. While challenging at a personal level at times, it was very worthwhile. I would highly recommend this workshop to others."

"I experienced the workshop as very moving, very informative, very creative and at all times interesting."

"Brilliant, what more can I say."


"I travelled from the USA to avail of the specialised biodynamic sessions with Mary Molloy in Killala. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work in-depth and intensively over 5 days rather than weekly sessions, and for someone like me, who does not have this facility, such a service is a god-send. Thank You. I am still feeling the positive effects of my sessions with you some months later."

JS Client

"It was good to meet everyone I know and some I had not met before. All of the speakers affected me in different ways - inspiring, exciting, moving, loving, sadness."

IL IoBM Licensed Biodynamic Psychotherapist

"The summer school is where I first met the extraordinary and gifted Mary Molloy. Mary is a true genius in her field. Through her help I have moved into a different space in my life and dealt with things that I didn't even know that I needed to deal with. I have become a much more spiritual and self aware person because of this."

GM. Participant

"The best part of the conference was listening, being accepted and safe, hearing other people speak from the heart, and being able and happy to speak."

DQ IoBM Licensed Biodynamic Psychotherapist

"I was diagnosed with lymphoma in 1993. I am certain that through my therapy, I experienced a clearing on all levels-physical, emotional, mental and spiritual which was healing and life-changing. I experienced my life energy, and I felt my connection to something greater than me. I was surprised to discover that therapy was not all about problems or trauma, but could allow the experiences of joy, love, pleasure and flow to emerge."
