Dirk Marivoet & Elisabeth RennerPelvic-Heart Introductory Workshop in Nijmegen (NL) March, 25-28, 2016 with Dirk Marivoet & Elisabeth Renner. We often resign ourselves to repeating cycles of being attracted to and then rejected by the opposite sex. This pattern of finding a short lived happiness and joy often leads to a plunging again into unforeseen frustration and heartbreak. We can first become intrigued and then often times overwhelmed by the mystery of the opposite sex. Yet when we really feel both, the masculine and feminine sides within us and then letting these parts of us interact with each other... we can find our way to a sustainable excitement, deep love and even ecstasy. Our sexuality then comes from the wonderful mystery from within and guides us in our relationship with the self and ultimately our relationships with others.

In this workshop we will introduce Pelvic-Heart Integration and discover how our characteristic breathing patterns, thoughts, emotions, and body armor block the free flow of our life force and inhibit our capacity for sensual pleasure and orgasmic release. We use breath, movement and mindful touch to feel the unity of love and satisfaction. Psychodrama, imagery and role plays enables us to explore the sexual and heart energy from our ancestors and our inner triangle (father, mother, child), which becomes a template for future relationships. Experiencing the spiritual presence of our ancestors is powerful and helps us to heal old wounds carried on through generations. Pelvic-Heart Integration is very helpful and supportive in creating a new wave of consciousness and body mind awareness within us all.
