Training methods:

This training does not only impart scientific knowledge and clinical and practice-oriented skills, but also provides opportunities for personal experience and growth.
All students experience the work on themselves. Therefore the learning occurs largely via observation and exploration. It is from this inner learning and knowing that we can then share the work with others.

The training methods include:

•       Teachings and lectures
•       Awareness and perceptual exercises
•       Visualizations and meditations
•       Movement exercises and creative expression
•       Use of visual aids
•       Session demonstrations
