Part III: The Body Types of Alexander Lowen and Opening up to our Essence

with Vedanta Aspioti and Nick Athanassakis

on the island of Ikaria in Greece

In the third part of the training, we reach a deep experiential understanding of the defensive structures within the personality. We uncover the way in which our conditioning appears on a physical level, as powerful armoring which encases our body and keeps us imprisoned in a cage of tension. As we are enclosed in our ego shell, our life energy shrinks, our senses and emotions are deadened and we are cut off from our Essence. 

During this training, we experience the five bodytypes of defense of Alexander Lowen and their psychic and psychological dimensions. We will acquire contemporary and applicable knowledge about the different types, for ourselves and for working with people therapeutically. We also learn body reading as a tool for channeling. We deepen in our meditation, coming in touch with the “Luminous Black” as the nature of the psychic channel. This is the true space of channeling.

In becoming conscious of, experiencing and gaining distance from our defensive patterns, we learn to let go of what does not truly belong to us. In this way we come closer to our Inner Being.

This training takes place on the magical Greek island of Ikaria, in Nas which is just above the ancient temple to the Goddess Artemis. This part of the Power of Light training is the continuation of POL II, but is also open for those that did not join us for the last part.
