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

This training will take place at The Mandala Goa. A beautiful retreat center nestled amongst a tidal lake, coconut trees and the stunning beaches of Ashwem in North Goa. The Mandala has been created with love and artistic vision. The buildings are constructed of natural materials to harmoniously blend with it’s surroundings. It is located away from the hustle and bustle, yet walking distance to local amenities. The Mandala is home to many retreats and healing modalities. It has a home-away-from-home feeling, where staff are welcoming and friendly, food is healthy and delicious and the surrounding environment is lush and alive. The perfect setting to support the process of BBTRS, returning to our true nature. Accommodations vary significantly in style and price.

Please note that due to the nature of the local infrastructure there may be occasional power cuts etc. We ask you to be understanding and patient in such moments until the situation is rectified. The Mandala Retreat space is set in a natural environment, which means you may experience visitors from the natural world from time to time.

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.
