IBT - Integrative Body Trauma-Therapy in Auroville

Dealing with Trauma in Therapy and Bodywork

IBT - Integrative  Body Trauma-Therapy - Foundations and Module Body-Awareness


Wednesday, Feb. 14th to Sunday, Feb. 18th 2018 at Quiet Healing Center in Auroville,, Tamil Nadu, South India



Human beings are vulnerable, many of us experienced harmful life events, from birth trauma to negligent or abusive caretakers, from experiences of violence and war to surgeries and accidents or catastrophes. Unresolved stressful and traumatic memories tend to block the natural flow of energies in our body, our mind and soul. Dealing with old, still sore wounds costs a lot of energy and can cause somatic and psychic symptoms. Compensating helps to survive and function, but symptoms and crises are constant reminders of an underlying chronic Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).



Bodyworkers and Therapists have to deal with clients who are often suffering from deep, hidden and underlying PTSD symptoms that cause all sorts of comorbid disorders. They 

are challenged especially by „difficult“ clients to develop their skills, knowledge, clarity and consciousness and to unfold in an ongoing self awareness process.

In this workshop you will learn

  • basic knowledge about Trauma and its aftermath
  • to identify PTSD Symptoms
  • to build up resources and stabilization
  • to deal with overwhelmed clients and dissociation and how to reorientate the client
  • to stop the trauma vortex
  • to learn how to reorientate the client 
  • to identify the right point of time to refer the client - and yourself - to a clinician, trained in trauma release work
  • to move and dance along a healing path
  • to open body and mind gently within the natural movement that emerges from everyone who dares to move with awareness and passion


This takes place in the safe and supportive space of appreciation and respect for each other. The work will be done within the entire group, in small pods, and in one-on-one therapeutic sessions in the group.



IBT - Integrative Movement Trauma-Ttherapy, supported by Soulrhythms Conscious Dance and Bodywork

This workshop counts as IBT

Module 1: Basics, (Introduction Day) and 

Module 2: (Body- and Movement Awareness for Psychotherapists)



Bodyworkers and therapists who

  • want to gain basic knowledge about trauma and posttraumatic stress 
  • are open for „learning by doing“, which means „learning by processing“ some of their own unresolved traumatic memories
  • are ready to move within a group of colleagues, with and without music, guided by a teacher
