Body, Self and Soul


An introduction to Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP)

IBP is a complete system that combines verbal work with breath and body wisdom for the systematic integration of body, mind, emotions and spirit.

It is a gentle and powerful way of confronting one's deepest patterns, which are located in the body and unconsciously control our lives. Real change comes with insight, but only when awareness permeates the entire being – body as well as mind. IBP emphasizes the importance of relationships and focuses upon awareness at all levels, resulting in profound life-enhancing transformation.

This program is intended for:

  • Anyone seeking more awareness and aliveness in their personal lives and relationships
  • Professionals wishing to incorporate the most advanced somatic approaches into their practices. CE credits are available

The introductory program includes presentations, demonstrations, experiential opportunities, group discussions, individual sessions, and breath and movement work for sustaining integration and well-being. Take-home resources are included.

This is a great way to experience the power, sophistication and elegance of the IBP system. For many people, it is the first step toward IBP professional training. With applications considered on an individual basis, 200-hour IBP foundational programs are offered. This 200-hour program can be extended to an additional 200-hour (3-year) professional training for licensed, or licensed-eligible mental health, or allied health, professionals.
