Mind Body Bowen

What is Mind Body Bowen?

Margaret, in conjunction with Anne Schubert, also a Bowtech Senior Instructor, has been instrumental in developing the Mind Body Bowen Workshop. They have taken this continually evolving practitioner workshop around Australia since 2002, the U.K. and Europe from 2004, N.Z. from 2005, U.S.A. from 2006, Canada from 2007 and Singapore 2009.

The Mind Body Bowen Workshop explores:

Bowenwork links with the field of Mind Body healing, the ‘when less is best’ principle, priorities for treatment, components and post-traumatic stress aspects. Addressing links to the subtle anatomy of the body (e.g. muscle/meridian correspondences) the holistic nature Bowen therapy linking the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual can be explored.

Utilising Mind Body Bowen a client’s session is individualised for them.

Please note that while Mind Body Bowen is not part of the nationally recognised training, it is Bowtech-accredited and eligible for Continuing Education points with Bowen Association Australia.

The Mind Body Bowen Workshop

This 2 day workshop is ‘practical hands-on’ with full involvement of participants as they directly experience all aspects from both a client and practitioner perspective. Interspersed with the practical work will be short sessions to introduce theoretical aspects, together with time allocated for further discussion, feedback and review.

Workshop notes will be supplied.

Bowtech/BAA CEU’s: 16 hours

Explore and experience:

  • How sensations as the language of the body indicate priorities for treatment and causative components
  • Bowen links with the field of mind body healing | Bowenwork and post traumatic stress | The ‘when less is best’ principle | The purity and depth of each Bowen move
  • Links between the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual as they relate to the holistic nature of Bowen therapy
  • Links to the subtle anatomy of the body, muscle / meridian links

Throughout the workshop the following will be addressed in relation to a Bowenwork session:

  • Body ‘Memory’ relating to sensation, tension, contraction and armouring.

‘Only when muscle tensions and armouring release can a state of wellbeing and relaxation follow.’

  • Innate Self-Healing Intelligence which uses signs and symptoms as a means of communication and provides access to ‘cause’
  • The ‘felt sense’ related to awareness and its role in release of post traumatic stress
  • Direct links via the sensations to the subtle anatomy of the body, including energy flows, meridians, muscle / meridian links
  • The enduring effects of birth trauma including prenatal and post birth issues. Working with babies and children, plus adults with residual associated physical, emotional and behavioural patterns will be explored.
  • The importance and relevance of the practitioner component in practice, including: intention, provision of a ‘safe’ environment, ethical and safety aspects, plus networking and further resources.
