Announcing the formation of the 5th Bioenergetic Training Group in Massachusetts
We are pleased to announce the formation of a Massachusetts Training Group in Bioenergetic Analysis. The training is sponsored by the MA Society of Bioenergetic Analysis, under the auspices of the International Institute of Bioenergetic Analysis (IIBA), and will begin in December, 2010, in Somerville, MA. Trainees will meet for 5 three-day weekends per year for four years.
Trainees are asked to sign up for one year at a time.
While learning to be a bioenergetic therapist is the primary teaching of the program, we offer a focus on personal growth as well, especially in the first two years. The teaching is both didactic and experiential. While in the training group, as part of the requirement for certification, trainees are expected to partake in their own bioenergetic therapy.
The material covered in the first year is based on the writing of Wilhelm Reich, Al Lowen and Phil Helfaer. Character, trauma, early childhood wounding, grounding, breathing, energetic blocks, and sexuality will all be taught and experienced from from a body-mind, and an energetic point of view. Trainees will be asked to read and to discuss relevant theoretical material.
The teachers for the group meetings during the first year will be Dr. Phil Helfaer, PhD, Dr. Peter Fernald, PhD, and Susan Kanor, MA. In future years of this training group, we will bring in other international faculty members to our teaching staff.
The tentative schedule of the weekends is:
December 3-5, 2010, February 4-6, 2011, April 7-9, 2011, and May 6-8, 2011.
The fee is $2500 for the first academic year. Some partial scholarships are available, based on need. To apply for the training program, Year I, please fill out the attached application with a $25 application fee.
Mail your check and application to:
MSBA, 11 Hickory Street, Gloucester, MA 01930.
We look forward to hearing from you, and will respond promptly to your application.
