10-Bodywork for Women, Reichian Therapy, Bioenergetics & Understanding

The combination of Reichian Therapy, Bioenergetics and Bodywork and it's importance for women specifically, is that it is a way for women to experience the depth of their feelings and their true power without the subtle pressure of partner, family, and social expectation.

A womans body is at the center of creation and life flows through that center as an open expression of the fullness of creation. Understanding this and living as the most central pivoting point of the creative forces of the planet is the most powerful aspect of humanity. The position is unconditional, for a woman does not have to do or perform anything to be in touch with the deepest driving forces of life, she just needs to be in touch with herself. Unfortunately, the expectations of the society and the conditioning meted out to women as they are growing up, tends to minimize her position and as a result many women are expected to play a secondary role in life. A life where her main job is as a support mechanism for what society considers to be more important. The minimizing of women is the minimizing of the center and this is one of the reasons why the world is immersed in disharmony and war and why poverty of spirit and ill health are the norm and has been the norm for many thousands of years.

When  women are upheld and loved by the society and when women are able to touch on their true power through the understanding of their depth and to trust themselves within that, society will change. Until this happens, we will only ever see a replay of the history of humanity where women are persecuted for the depth of their knowledge, through restriction and limitation. 

The starting point of change is for a woman to find herself, to touch on her power and to understand the real position she holds as the center of life. The power is both loose and strong at the same time, it is flexible , knowing, adaptable and has a level of perception that is unique to the state. Limitation, social expectation and control of female expression are power reducing forces within the society,  power reducing for both men and women.    

Bodywork is about touching on the " knowing" of the body. The body is not satisfied until it is living at it's full potential and the body knows how to achieve that. The process is unique and individual for every person. No two people do the same thing in regards to finding themselves. Your  journey is your own and has a unique history, only your body knows how to resolve the problems that have arisen on the journey. No one else can tell you what you need to do and how you need to do it. The answers are contained within yourself and given the right opportunity your body will heal all of the ills that hinder the process of you finding your power.
