Come join us this Sunday 14.08.2022 at 8:00 PM CET in this FREE webinar where Dirk Marivoet, Founder and Director of IBI will discuss the “Energetic Breath Cycle” a cornerstone map – originally developed by Jack W. Painter, PhD. –  for creating ‘agency’. Are you interested in our programs in body psychotherapy and bodymind integration?  This cornerstone map shows how we humans are made to be able to be happy in an imperfect world that is endlessly evolving and in which we are the agents of that cosmological unfolding.

What will be covered?

  • The 5 basic developmental needs for growing connection, satisfaction, hope and consciousness: Place, Nurturance, Support, Protection, Loving Limits
  • An overview of the 9-stages of the energetic breath cycle.
  • The application of this model for self-regulation, improvement of relationships, and collective healing.
  • The role of the Masculine and Feminine polarity.
  • The conditions for reaching higher levels of energy and find pleasure
  • The role of Polyvagal theory
  • The place of Trauma.

Dirk Marivoet will start with a talk on the topic and afterwards there will be time for questions, answers and future developments.
