Bioenergetic Alchemy Intensives
Bioenergetic Alchemy Intensives
Learn about Embodied Self Awareness:
These Bioenergetic Alchemy weekends are for individuals interested in their own self-development and/or healing processes. Intensives offer deep experiential learning about the body-mind, and students are encouraged to develop skills in present-moment listening, sensing, and emotional/feeling awareness related to the body-mind.
This Bioenergetic Alchemy™ weekend intensive is Water – Boundaries & Opening to Feeling on March 10th 12 pm – 6 pm, & March 11th 10:30 pm – 6 pm.
We think of the body as a vessel providing support, grounding and containment for our life energy, much like a cup holds water. And without appropriate boundaries, the water flows out and the cup runs dry, with excessive boundaries however the water cannot flow and becomes stagnant and dull.
Identifying and setting clear boundaries is vital for anyone who wants to become more confident and assertive, improve their relationships, and prevent victimization.
When you create boundaries you take a stand for yourself and your life, and you communicate your worth to others in a real and practical way.
Opening to feeling
Just as releasing emotion frees the body, we can move the body to consciously free emotions. Encouraging movement where the body is frozen helps to free the emotions and restore aliveness.
This Bioenergetic Alchemy weekend intensive will give you the practical embodiment exercises for Grounding, Centring and Opening to Feeling. We will be also be exploring Artwork, Dance/movement and sharing circles.
“Emotion is the chief source of all becoming conscious. There can be no transforming of darkness into light and apathy into movement, without emotion” — C. G. Jung
“Thank you, Seth. The weekend was an exceptional experience of deep healing, awakening, and opening. I feel so light, peaceful, and full of Love. Through the journey we took, I touched some of my wounds, gently but deeply releasing and healing what was ready to be alchemised. Thank you to all the other lovely participants. Please organise the next one soon :-)” Tanja

“Like the Bioenergetic Alchemy classes, but better. The weekend gave me the opportunity to go deeper into my body and discover new experiences which I hadn’t been able to tap into before. It was a good mix of different exercises, and I had a really blissful experience with the breathwork.” Vijay
Over the course of these Bioenergetic Alchemy intensive weekends, we will explore these powerful humanistic embodiment exercises that work with our relationship with our body, and with loosening and bringing awareness to the 7 segments of body armouring.

Limited to 8 participants. Please note that previous experience of Seth’s work is needed to attend. Seth runs weekly Bioenergetics sessions in Highbury and Islington and attending one of these events would qualify you to attend a weekend.
The weekend is facilitated by Seth Newman who brings 20 years experience of group work, Bioenergetics, humanistic psychotherapy and active meditation. Seth brings a holistic approach to his work with groups and individuals.
“My classes follow a format of checking in with the body, warm-ups, grounding and building the body’s energy, then discharging the energy through movement and expression. This is followed by relaxation. The immediate result is a felt sense of security, vibrancy and exhilaration.” – Seth Newman
If you have not attended any classes with Seth before it is recommended that you attend one of his weekly Friday evening Bioenergetic Alchemy drop-in classes before signing up.

About Bioenergetic Alchemy™:
Bioenergetic Alchemy™ is a body-mind approach to psychological, physical and emotional health and well-being. These classes are a unique movement experience, where we begin to soften the muscular tension and chronic holding in our bodies through a series of gentle stretches, grounding and self expression exercises. Relieving stress, enhancing our emotional well-being and sense of self and beginning to open our heart to life.
“Learn to ride the waves of feelings and emotion without getting lost in the rapids…”
At the personal level, the highly experiential nature of Bioenergetic Alchemy™ is a catalyst for transformation, as participants work in the laboratory of their own process and their relationship to others. The work opens the heart, brings grounded empowerment to the personality, and a deeper connection to the Core; centre of your authentic self and Divine essence.
