Logosynthesis and Health
An Online Experiential Seminar with Dr. Willem Lammers
Painful experiences with the environment are stored as rigid energy patterns in the field of the body, especially in childhood when there is a lack of opportunities for emotional processing and rational understanding.
Disturbances in the structures or functions of the body can lead to suffering: a diagnosis of serious illness, accidents, surgery, and chronic illness can upset your mental state.
Society shapes the way the body is treated from cradle to the coffin: how it looks, how you care for it, how you move and nourish it, how needs are expressed and met.
In the philosophy of Logosynthesis, your body is an instrument of Essence, an outfit for this earth – similar to a diving suit for the underwater world. It is a complex energy system, a dynamic interface between your Essence and the Matrix you have chosen for your task in this world. It is at your disposal for your task, often unconsciously, without problems.
Your entire body perception is constantly developing – from human evolution, your genes, your social programming and your personal experience. It is integrated in your body image, a “specialized, internal, analog data center for information about the body and its environment”, according to Mardi Horowitz . Your body image helps you to assess your options and limits. It determines what you expect the body to do, how much you suffer or how you feel about your health.
We will work with the whole range of Logosynthesis methods. Short content presentations may support your learning and processing.
Each session will consist of a number of Logosynthesis applications to an issue brought in by a member of the group. Themes can be sent to the trainer before the session or brought in on the spot. After each sequence, you can ask questions about the method, the theory and the philosophy of Logosynthesis, to deepen your understanding of what you have perceived and experienced.
