What to expect in your Foundational Level 1 training:

Everyone in this training will be fairly new or completely new to this work. In BBTRS we believe that before we can truly hold space for others, we must apply the work to ourselves first. We can better support others once we have experienced the depth of our own inner world and become better acquainted with our own physical body. Through applying the work to ourselves we create a solid foundation from where we can become evermore present with ourselves, others and the moment -to -moment experiences of everyday life.

In this training workshop, all students will fully participate in the 8-day experiential journey. You will be safely supported by Natalie & Daniel who will guide you on a beautiful & intensive journey of opening up the breath & body. Day by day we will work with each of the belts of tension in the body through active meditations, sound, movement, group & partner exercises, conscious connected breathing and more. There will be laughter, play, tears, connection, release and expansion.

You will also learn and embody the fundamentals of both receiving and holding space for a BBTRS session- Felt sense, Resource, Resonance, Touch, Presence, Integration, Charge & Discharge, Somatic Experiencing, Trauma Release exercises, Titration, Pendulation & Grounding to support us in moving into the deeper realms of trust and surrender, exercising boundaries and gently moving beyond our comfort zones. We will explore authentic expression through movement and voice. We will look at the interruption and armoring formed around the heart and begin to open up to love, connection and feeling once more.

The location

The Flor das Águas center houses a community that aims to integrate universal ethical values with a simple life where thinking, feeling, speaking and acting are aligned and integrated into everyday life. Together we meditate, practice Yoga, pray, sing and praise, carry out planting and harvest efforts, cook and celebrate life.

Living in community means choosing to be reminded of your purpose daily, seeing the other as a mirror of yourself and an opportunity for growth and learning. The Flor das Águas center is magnetized by people who opted for a common life, aware that the primary link of this union is surrendering to the path of self-knowledge.

In order to receive everyone who feels the call to be here, we have accommodation options with greater infrastructure or simpler, which meet the various possibilities of contribution. All the available options are located within the Flor das Águas center. The meals served at Espaço Flor das Águas (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are vegan, with the option of honey from our beehives.

The BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release System (BBTRS)

The BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release System (BBTRS) is built on a new revolutionary approach to trauma release. It skillfully combines specially designed breath techniques, conscious movement, touch, sound, gentle-cathartic emotional release and meditation.

This fully experiential training is designed to break through layers of body armoring; releasing mental, emotional & physical resistance and stress from your nervous system and cellular memories. You will intimately re-connect with your true self and your longing to live with an open heart.

BBTRS enables you to feel the full range of sensations and emotions available, while expanding your capacity to contain and support the free flow of your energy. This work restructures at a cellular level, supporting the opening of your spine, and ultimately transforms you into being increasingly present and conscious in your life. You open up to acceptance of yourself and others, celebrating life in its fullest.

BBTR guided me to an experience of going deeper than anything has taken me in over 20 years of frustrated seeking for relief from deep trauma. Giten’s incredible love, sensitivity, wisdom and clarity guided me to touch a place I couldn't reach. I feel tremendous gratitude for this work.

Compared to other modalities I've studied that use passive techniques, or the conscious mind via talk therapy, BBTR cuts through it all to go deeper.
