Testimonials for Body Transformation Practitioner Training
'Life continues to amaze me as I am confronted with myself and the echoes of the training. The stories in and around my being are compelling me to find love and to feel love. I went to the walk across the bridge for reconciliation in Sydney and it was no coincidence that wind spirit blew over the whole east coast, inland Victoria and NSW.
I understand that I am to forgive myself. The joy and sadness in being alive sometimes overwhelms me. It's very difficult to put into words what has been the most conscious, transformative experience of my life.
My capacity for love has increased, the wellspring within me is more accessible, the picture is bigger and my points of reference have changed. I am more here, my love is deeper and my orgasms are better. I am much more at ease with who I am; a level of tension that was in my body has gone.
With knowledge of myself has come wisdom, and with wisdom a lightness and laughter that has always been there with me on my remarkable, magnificent and beautiful journey on planet earth.
My sincere thanks to The Centre and my love and gratitude to Daricha and Rachana for yet again another amazing training. To my life-long colleagues, thank you, thank you, I love you all.' Peter Worboys
'My journey through Modules One to Three of Body Transformation with Daricha, our mentors and my colleagues in the groups I worked with, has been a time of great change and healing in my life. I have been able to see the perfection of timing, as events in my life unfold the steps towards my greater healing. I have been witness to a flowering in myself and can understand how our healing happens when we are ready and how events the universe throws up happen at the most appropriate times.
My body is very different now from the time when I first discovered Body Transformation and as a consequence so is my life. I have greater ability for clarity, communication and navigating through life's events. Now when I am offered challenges I am able to deal with them in a more wise and mature way, to recognise the lows and the highs of life as just that living!
I can now take responsibility for my own stuff and be more clear on what is not mine. I now trust myself and am confident of my abilities as a healer. I have grown up during the last 18 months and now I am able to see myself becoming the woman I always knew I would be.
Many, many thanks for the care, support and loving encouragement that I received during the three levels of training. I would recommend this work to anyone who wants to heal themselves.' Georgina Nebe
'The training opened my heart. It opened a new compassion within myself, for myself, and for the vast and unmappable nature of human experience in a totally experiential way. It stretched me physically and my consciousness inter-dimensionally beyond all I had remembered.
Over the three modules I opened again and again to the bigger picture. I learned to change perspectives continually. The space was sacred, and filled with integrity, abundant love and challenge. I benefited from the way the training was structured in three two-week intensives over eighteen months. During the spaces in between I was able to birth myself into the world with my newly found insights and skills; to grow with this, to be overwhelmed by this.
I felt the support of my group when we were meeting again, sharing our journeys, challenges and successes. Each module made my experiences more concrete and my passion for the work expand. I was able to experience my true nature of surrender and ease, to feel embodiment unrestrained, magnificent and full.
Every time I sit at the end of the bodywork table, someone's head in my hands, ready to begin a session, I am blessed with the reservoir of knowledge, healing energy and love to which I was attuned during the training. In this lifetime the Body Transformation training is the most exceptional experience I have been blessed enough to be involved in. Thank you.' Suzy Gavey
'Through the Body Transformation training, I've learned an enormous amount about the deep ways in which our experiences live on in our bodies and affect us and the opportunities we are able to take advantage of.
Through the sessions I have come to re-member experiences of this and other lives in a way that allows my body-wisdom to integrate their impact. I have learned through the course how to access that body-wisdom and how to let the energy of healing and change move through my body and soul, releasing the holding, denial, and fear.
As a result, areas of my being that I have been unable or unwilling to explore have become available to me again, so that my life is much fuller and richer than ever before in this lifetime. One enormous area is that of intimacy. Since starting the course, I first realised how much I longed for deep intimate relationship with a man, then connected with many experiences of wounding in relationship to men, as if there were some deep place in me that needed re-visiting.
Eventually I was able to find this pain and allow its healing to take place. As a result, the father of my son has been drawn back into loving appreciation of me and we have been able to renew our marriage after four years of separation. What had made our relationship impossible was the backlog of unexpressed pain held in the body that the strokes of Body Transformation released.
As a transpersonal psychologist, I find the techniques are extremely effective for my clients, who report being able to move quickly through profound changes in the way they are able to live their lives. Recent research in the area of trauma by Van Der Kolk and others substantiates what Body Transformation has taught for more than a decade: that the effects of trauma that is not appropriately processed when experienced, are held in the body until they can be released at some later time.
The strokes of Body Transformation allow the re-working of the effects of trauma, allowing the experience to be re-lived in a safe environment with all the feelings and effects reverberating as appropriate through the body and soul. The person can find his or her own power-full response and gain insight into how being denied appropriate expression in the situation was the cause of the holding in the body. With this comes release into new possibilities for the present and future.
Module Three I found very difficult because it was so powerful. The work took me back to re-examine the very basis on which I have constructed my life in this body. This has meant that I have had the opportunity to re-design habits that have given my life the very structure I am familiar with. This is not easy, it is frightening, and I feel that I am not able to bring about the deep changes as quickly or as thoroughly as I would like. On the other hand, it is an immensely rewarding and pleasing outcome, for I feel that many of these habits come from deep impressions that I have been living with for many lifetimes. It is amazing grace to have the opportunity to be rid of them.
For that I thank you, Daricha, and the work you teach.' Renuka
