This group is aimed at those who wish to work in an embodied way – exploring the body-mind connection, within the context of a small therapeutic group (approximately 8-10 individuals).
Four Elements DMTM uses the Transpersonal Psychotherapy model based on the elements: Earth / Water / Air / Fire. In helping people to connect with these four outer elements, they are encouraged incrementally to re-connect with the inner landscapes:
As we explore and move through these four aspects of ourselves, various techniques are utilised to process and release emotion, blockages and constriction that are held within the body-mind.
