Pelvic-Heart Integration workshop in Villers-en-Prayères France

25 > 31 May 2023
Villers-en-Prayères (France)

Living the Mystery
of the
Masculine and Feminine

Beyond Attraction-Rejection, Happiness-Frustration,
Joy- Heartbreak

Are you longing to create and sustain healthy, dynamic relationships? Would you like to experience your full sexual energy and pleasure? Are you able to harness the innate action energy of your masculinity and tap into the receptivity and intuition of your femininity?

Pelvic-Heart Integration (PHI) (also known as “Heart in Sexuality”) is a complete practice of Bodymind Integration, developed by Jack W. Painter, PhD. PHI helps you to consciously integrate the sexual energies associated with your pelvis with the emergent qualities of your heart (e.g. feelings of trust, love, caring, sensitivity, compassion, …).

We “wear our hearts on our faces” and also express connection through our voices, gestures, and touches. Central in the PHI model is the “Energetic Cycle” (consisting of nine well defined stages). This map offers a stepwise learning and therapeutic process around the different “stages of love” of childhood development, integrated in the adult.

Role play is part of Pelvic-Heart Integration training

Program of the workshop in Villers-en-Prayères

In this workshop we will discover how our characteristic breathing patterns, thoughts, emotions, and body armour block the free flow of our life force and inhibit our capacity for sensual pleasure and orgasmic release. We use breath, movement and mindful touch to feel the unity of love and satisfaction. Psychodrama, imagery and role plays are helping us to explore the sexual and heart energy from our ancestors and our inner triangle (father, mother, child) which becomes a template for future relationships. Experiencing the spiritual presence of our ancestors is powerful and helps us to heal old wounds carried through generations.
Pelvic-Heart Integration is helpful and supportive in creating a new wave of consciousness in all of us.
What can you learn in this workshop?
  • How to use the heart-pelvic connection to release trauma and find or increase orgasmic pleasure
  • Learn how your body organizes male and female energy
  • Learn to embrace and unify both sides.
  • Learn to use the breath to reach new levels of excitement with or without a partner.
  • Learn to identify patterns and blockages for the free flow of orgasmic energy
  • Learn how to identify how these blockages relate to body types and personality types.
  • Identify the origin of these sexual blockages and how to release them at the physical, energetic and emotional levels.
  • Learn to free yourself from your old dysfunctional patterns, self-regulate your autonomic nervous system and become a confident individual.

Through individual and group practices, you will be able to experience how your entire body, energy, feeling and attitude start to change subtly. People who have experienced this work firsthand, tell us that they become livelier, more powerful, more connected, satisfied, joyful, courageous.
