ABOUT THE INTRODUCTORY WEEKEND
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 feel fate had its hand in leading me to the biodynamic work and finding this work has completely changed my life.
For some time I had been in a very difficult place in myself. I had a great job, fantastic family and friends but felt I was not really living my life, just going through the motions. I was working relentlessly, denying any need and unable to relate. I had become very isolated, frightened and very good at putting on a front, that life was ok. In fact I had experienced many years of panic attacks and anxiety and was hardly functioning properly.
The biodynamic blueprint encapsulates all aspects of the self; the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sides. Being a spiritual being in a world where others were sceptical of that side of life - it was also important for me that I felt I had found a place that I could bring all of me to, and be understood on every level."
"I know of Mary Molloy through a patient who I saw before and after she went to Killala, Co Mayo, Ireland and received a week of 'block therapy' treatment from Mary at the Biodynamic Clinic where Mary works and teaches. It is one of the most profound cases of healing I have ever seen.
I had the good fortune to do a thorough history, physical exam, laboratory testing, and review extensive medical records prior to her leaving and then to repeat those tests and exams afterwards. It would take a lot of space to recount the many manifestations that confirm healing happened on multiple levels in this letter, but let me say for now they were present when she returned to such a degree that what she and I have been working on since is how to integrate the return of so many abilities into her life.
Working with Mary completely transformed her options for living, and I am in awe of the scope of what I have seen and felt with my own eyes and hands."

"I benefit from biodynamic massage. I feel very relaxed and soothed afterwards and haven’t as much pain from arthritis in my joints. I am learning to cope with the challenges of old age. My husband and I have taken a couple of courses in massage at a Quaker meeting centre and when I worked in therapeutic care with the Red Cross. The body is designed to heal itself and biodynamic psychotherapy assists this process. The therapists I have met have all been very helpful and can be contacted by telephone. I can testify that this therapy improves the quality of my life, for which I am thankful."
SB and RB - Clients and 'Friends' of IoBM
"Now as a practising biodynamic psychotherapist and Full Professional Member of GBII I am building a thriving psychotherapy practice. I have the backing of the Institute in setting up the premises, insurance, continued professional development, marketing, case studies and research. To add variety to my psychotherapy career, my next steps are to look at gaining a qualification in teaching biodynamic exercises in my Aikido classes where I can teach some grounding, relaxation and communication exercises to participants."
K N. GBII Licensed Biodynamic Psychotherapist
"Based on the amazing discoveries of Gerda Boyesen, this therapy was a completely new, holistic understanding of the physical and emotional workings of the body. No drugs or medications are used, just this deep knowledge and gentle massage techniques of releasing compromised energy channels, in order to re-establish the original free-flow of energy functions-returning to the original activities of cellular relationships throughout the body. I can recommend this work most highly to any age group."
