IBT - Integrative Body Trauma-Therapy in Auroville

Dealing with Trauma in Therapy and Bodywork

Dive deeper and fly higher in a group of international moving people! Connect roots and wings!



People are vulnerable, many of us have experienced traumatic events, from birth to negligent or abusive care, from experiences of violence and war to operations and accidents or disasters. Unresolved and traumatic memories tend to block the natural flow of energies in the mind, body and soul.

Dealing with old, open wounds costs a lot of energy and can cause somatic and psychological symptoms.

Compensation helps to survive and function, but symptoms and crises are constant reminders of an underlying chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


Bodyworkers and therapists are confronted with clients who often suffer from deep, hidden, and underlying PTSD symptoms that cause all kinds of comorbid disorders. Above all, they are challenged by difficult clients to develop their skills, knowledge, clarity and awareness, and are challenged to undergo an ongoing self-awareness process.



IBT - Integrative Moving Trauma Therapy, supported by Soul Rhythm's conscious dance and bodywork.

With the body and movement-oriented approach of IBT resources are built up and the affect regulation ability is increased.

Practical exercises make it easier to recognize dissociation and the transgression of the tolerance window of the nervous system at an early stage. Client security and mindful approach are in the foreground.

The work will take place throughout the group, in smaller groups and in individual therapy sessions within the group.


This workshop counts as IBT Module 1: Introduction Day and Module 2: Body and Movement Perception for Psychotherapists



Bodyworkers and therapists who want to acquire basic knowledge about trauma and post-traumatic stress and are open to learning through action.

Willingness to learn by processing one's own unresolved traumatic memories as well as moving within a group of co-workers, led by a teacher with and without music.


Contents and goals:

Every morning there is an introduction to IBT for those who work therapeutically. The basics and impact factors of process-oriented trauma therapy and practical exercises from the repertoire of IBT are taught and practiced.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • "The safe place in motion"
  • feel boundaries in the body - building relationships with movement,
  • finding a resource or stress movement
  • commuting between resource and stress movement
  • "Moving Journey Through the Body", building a moving therapeutic space
  • basic knowledge of trauma and its consequences
  • to identify PTSD symptoms
  • build up and stabilize resources
  • dealing with overwhelmed clients and dissociations
  • to stop the trauma
  • how to reorient the client
  • identify the right time to refer the client to trauma experts
  • to move and dance on a healing path
  • gently opening your body and mind to the natural movement that emerges when you dare to move with awareness and passion
  • fully inhabit the body and find joy in the movement (again). Dancing into the unity of body, feeling and spirit. To refine one's own language of movement and to further develop one's own dance, dance off, sweat, enjoy moving encounters and so on
  • gaining a basic understanding of mental trauma and the consequences and dynamics of trauma sequelae.


Every evening, those who want to engage in free, guided movement in a group will have the opportunity to use dance as a self-experience.

The two "Concious Dance" styles, 5 Rhythms and Soul Motion will support you with their respective maps and frames.


All of this happens in the safe and supportive space of appreciation and respect for each other.
