Come join us for this extraordinary and transformative training

Postural Integration® is a Western way to overcome the split between polarities like left-right, above-below, inside-outside, back-front, sexuality and love, the masculine and the feminine within the person and through trans-generational work.

The Method was developed by Jack Painter, Ph.D. and auspiced by ICPIT (The International Council of PsychoCorporal Integration Trainers, founded by Dr. Painter in 1988)

Throughout our lives we separate below from above, we split our sexuality from the feelings of our heart over and over again. We also split left from right, separating our sense of unity, connection, relationship (right) and sense of linearity, autonomy, consistency. We CAN have both together and coordinated in one bodymind. Other dimensions like back and front, representing vulnerability and power/protection, and inside-outside (feeling-doing), etc. are being brought together with Postural Integration® and Core Strokes™.

While we run away from our deep feelings of one side of ourselves, we are investing a lot of energy in the other side The way we separate one from the other, is reflected in our body. The connection between the head and the rest of the body, back and front, inside and outside, allows us to see our natural rhythm of pleasure and excitement, thus connecting our polarities, our "male" and "female" side, our "receptive" and "active" side in us. The simultaneous work with breathing, touch, movement, feelings and thoughts brings the energy between the each polarity to flow and opens us to love ourselves and others.
