    Embodiment Birthshop Level 1 Oakland Hills

    IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO HAVE A HAPPY BIRTH

    This two day Level 1 Birthshop is for: 

    • Anyone who wants more love, connection, and purpose in life and who feels that there is something holding them back.
    • Expectant parents, especially Mothers and Fathers who want to give their babies a head start in life by not passing on their own traumas to them.
    • People in the helping professions such as therapists, counselors, doulas, midwives, bodyworkers, coaches, etc. who want to gain insight into themselves and to learn new tools to support their clients more effectively.
    • Parents of children who may have had difficult or traumatic births. By clearing their own experiences of their births and their children’s births, parents are able to support their children’s well-being by providing a more neutral and supportive nervous system for their children to access.
     
    BIRTHSHOPS WILL HELP YOU TO:

    * CLEAR traumatic residue of early experiences from our nervous systems.
    * SET A NEW BASELINE of wellness and belonging.
    * GIVE you the important missing experience of being deeply welcomed to your life in safety and love.

    Instead of trying to fix the old “programming” (by re-living the initial shock of being born), it’s most effective to just acquire a whole new vivid, rich, and wonderful birth experience!

    The Birthshop combines powerful somatic visualizations, meditation, somatic re-education, breathing exercises and one-on-one work supported by the group.

    It’s deep, it’s profoundly healing and it’s fun!

    WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING: 

    “This workshop was very profound for me in two different ways: one as a preparation for our baby’s birthand the other as a woman in the world. I experienced the way i would like my baby and all babies to feel when they come to this life. I also discovered a lot a bout my self I had not known. I learned from Matthew as a facilitator but I also learned about him as a real person, as a husband, father and individual being.”
     -Paulina

    “I am 61 year old male with children in their mid 20’s. Attending abirthshop would seem a little late… but I found it to be a very effective and powerful method. Matthew creates a safe place for connecting with my feelings and is a wonderful guide in this process. I would recommend this work to anybody and especially young couples. ” -Rhoads

    “Matthew is an extraordinarily skilled facilitator. He is wise, sensitive to participant’s individual needs, funny, humble, non-judgmental, helpful and a very good listener. On a technical level I was incredibly impressed by the fluid versatility with which he skillfully wove and transitioned between a wide variety of therapeutic modalities. My wife and I felt totally safe and comfortable doing some very vulnerable work with him, and we got more than we expected out of the workshop.” -Scott

    Birth into Being Level 1 & 2 - with Kiria Vandekamp & Stefan Oesterlin-Vandekamp

    Birth into Being

    ist eine kraftvolle, körperorientierte Methode um Blockaden aufzulösen, die uns daran hindern wirklich ganz im Leben anzukommen und unser Potenzial zu leben. Es geht dabei nicht um einen weiteren "Selbstoptimierungswahn", sondern um ein tiefes Loslassen ins Sein, aus dem sich unser Handeln ganz natürlich und unangestrengt entfalten kann.

    Elena Tonetti-Vladimirova begann diese Methode zu entwickeln, als sie in den 80er Jahren Geburten in Camps am Schwarzen Meer begleitete. Was hält Dich zurück? ist eine Frage, deren Antwort sich während einer Geburt sehr deutlich als Hindernis manifestiert. Sie merkte bald, dass dies jedoch für all unsere Lebensbereiche und für Frauen und Männer gleichermaßen zutrifft. Daraus entstand die heutige "Birth into Being"-Arbeit, die sie überall auf der Welt angewandt und gelehrt hat. Sie lebt mittlerweile in Kalifornien. Infos über sie und ihre Arbeit gibt es aufwww.birthintobeing.com.

     

    Methodik

    Mit Worten zu beschreiben, was in den Prozessen der "Birth into Being"- Arbeit geschieht ist ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit. Nimmt man daran teil, ist erstaunlich schnell klar, um was es geht.

    Wenn man jemandem erklärt, wie etwas schmeckt, wird derjenige danach immer noch nicht wissen, wie es wirklich schmeckt. Ein Bissen sagt da mehr als tausend Worte.

    Trotzdem ein paar Worte für den Verstand:

    Die Grundlage der BIB-Arbeit ist unsere neurologische Struktur. Die tieferen Schichten unseres Gehirns können eine Erinnerung nicht von einer Erfahrung und nicht von einer Vorstellung unterscheiden. So können wir also auch im Rahmen eines Workshops neue Erfahrungen machen, die unsere Prägungen relativieren und nachhaltig neue Wege eröffnen, unser Leben zu erfahren. Die BIB-Arbeit kann man in drei Bereiche unterteilen:

    1. "3er-Prozesse", das sind sehr fokussierte "Mini-Aufstellungen", bei denen ein/e Teilnehmer/in arbeitet und zwei andere sie dabei unterstützen. Mit dieser Art Rollenspiel fängt man einerseits bestehende Dynamiken ein (Blockaden, Polaritäten und Dilemmas, etc.), um sie dann sehr schnell so zu verändern, dass sie für die jetzige Lebenssituation Sinn machen. Es geht darum, sich zu trauen, das zu erfahren, was Du jetzt wirklich willst, statt die alten Dramen zu repetieren.

    2. Geführte Meditationen, vor allem das sogenannte "Limbic Imprint Recoding (LIR)", bei dem es darum geht, Deine eigene Geburt als die wunderbare Erfahrung zu erleben, die Du Dir wünschst - ganz egal, was Du wirklich erlebt hast. Dass das funktioniert, liegt wie oben erwähnt an der Struktur unseres Nervensystems - und es ist tatsächlich einfach eine Entscheidung, die in der Regel sehr leicht fällt.

    3."Core Crys", eine körperorientierte Prozessarbeit, bei der über gezielte Fragen direkt angesprochen wird, was Dich im Leben zurückhält. Die "Blockade" darf sich einerseits konstellieren und kann im Hier und Jetzt der direkten Begegnung aufgelöst werden

    Der Atem und die Bewegung aktivieren in allen Prozessen unsere tieferen Ressourcen, von denen unser mit dem Denken identifiziertes Alltagsbewusstsein keine Ahnung hat.

    Vielleicht weißt Du jetzt auch nicht wirklich viel mehr, oder? Es gibt die Stimmen der Teilnehmer unserer Kurse und wer will kann auf YouTube "Testimonials" über die BIB-Arbeit ansehen. Die beste Möglichkeit, zu Erfahren, um was es geht und dass es geht ist jedoch, es selbst zu erleben :

    Birth Into Being Workshops in Lörrach

    Was würdest du tun, wenn nichts dich zurückhielte? Lass deine alte Geschichte los und gebäre dich selbst neu ins Sein. Stell dir vor du würdest dich selbst beschenken mit der inneren Prägung einer ekstatischen Empfängnis, einer zutiefst beglückenden Geburt und dem Gefühl wirklich und wahrhaftig willkommen zu sein.

    Birth Into Being beschäftigt sich im ersten Level mit deinem eigenen Eintritt ins Leben und hilft dir, Muster und Strukturen zu lösen, die dich daran hindern selbstbestimmt zu leben. In einem sicheren und geschützten Rahmen schreiben wir zusammen die Geschichte unseres Lebensanfangs neu, erobern unser angeborenes Glückspotential zurück und erschaffen Verbundenheit, Erinnerung, Absicht und Heilung unserer Emotionen. In diesem Workshop geht um das Neuprogrammieren deiner limbischen Prägungen, um das Lösen von Blockaden, die mit deiner eigenen frühen Prägungsphase zu tun haben, also deiner Zeugung, Zeit im Mutterleib, Geburt und frühen Kindheit. Die Blockaden unserer Lebensenergie, die wir hier erfahren haben, kreieren wir uns im späteren Leben unbewusst immer wieder. Sie zu verändern oder zu lösen kann dir helfen in deiner vollen Kraft zu Leben, zu Gebären, zu Arbeiten und deine Schönheit & Bestimmung in die Welt zu bringen.

    Dieser Workshop ist für alle Menschen geeignet, die an sich selbst arbeiten wollen, besonders auch zur Geburtsvorbereitung für werdende Mütter und Väter - aber auch für alle anderen, für die es nicht darum geht physische Kinder auf die Welt zu bringen, sondern eher sich selbst :-).

    We invite you to:

    • Gain new reference points in your nervous system for greater ability of intimacy and creativity
    • Fearlessly birth a new project, a new baby and a new You!

    We share an understanding that within each cell of our bodies, we carry an imprint from our formative period. If our emotional body was overwhelmed during that period, then a lifetime of ineffective coping strategies and outdated behavioral patterns may occur.

    Birth Into Being Method offers a very effective approach to transforming a less than blissful Limbic Imprint to a highly functional and enjoyable one.

    Our multisensory, multi-generational approach, informed by epigenetics and neuroplasticity, focuses on the formative period from preconception through the early adolescence and is geared towards both men and women. The full 16-day program consists of 20 processes and 18 exercises, each designed to further facilitate alignment with the intelligence of Nature’s creative Power.

    Watch the video:

    Course Description:

    The full Birth Into Being Curriculum consists of 20 processes and 19 exercises. During the 8 days (4 Levels) of the therapeutic portion of the course, the participants will have enough time to  experience most of them to address all the main issues in a powerful, transformative way. Yet, within the limited time of 8 days, it is not possible to experience all of them, that's why we offer the additional 8 days, which will include also the training portion. The exact curriculum, order of presentation, and the depth of coverage depends on the group dynamic and the specific facilitator. There is no rigid structure or order of things in this work. Spontaneously responding to the needs of the participants is part of the training and establishes healthy relationships with the Vortex of the Birthing Field.

    Also, interwoven into the tissue of the course are journaling, sharing in a circle, dancing, massage circles, tea breaks, heartfelt connection with other participants, etc.

    Same with the topics covered: in a free flowing, storytelling format, the facilitator has a long list of  important issues to address, depending on the specific needs of the participants.
