When we take medication for one illness it can often be needed at the time, but the medication in itself changes our brain chemistry and can create an addiction and second illness.
Once we cure our original problem, for example: depression. When we come off the medication we may then feel depressed again and go back on it. But often it is not our psychology or natural brain chemistry that is the problem, but the medication itself.
By learning how to energise and stimulate our own glands with simple breathing practices and clear intentions we can reduce medications, such as antidepressants, as we rebalance our own brain chemistry, while coming off any medication.
We can also use these same breathing, energy and body practices to help us take trauma out of the body. Trauma that often creates the emotional imbalances that lead to the psychological illnesses and depression in the first place.
This 10 week course includes:
- Eight three hour evening sessions in a small group maximum of 12 participants.
- The basics of Masculine Feminine Polarity Work, using the maps to gain fresh insights and perspectives for life.
- Shaking, breathing, and self bodywork to release trauma, emotions and change our brain chemistry.
- Creating clear intentions for each participant.
- Light email support during and after the course.
- Work sheets for breathing and body exercise to practice at home.
- On-line Facebook group to keep each other motivated during and after the course.

This course is for designed for people who are coming off medication responsibly and who are in communication with their doctor, but it is open to anyone who feels this type of continuous work in a group setting can help. Feeling depressed and considering medication, or just generally interested in the course for their all round health. No medical or advice about medication is given, and it is participants own responsibility to communicate with their doctor before reducing medication.
Everybody is different but as a general rule, starting these breathing and movement practices before adverse symptoms occurs is best.
Starting because adverse withdrawal symptoms have arisen is not advisable, and you should consult your Doctor.
The workshop and all communication is in English. Basic English is needed and informal translation of larger words and concepts is encouraged during the sessions.
It is best to commit to and attend all 8 sessions, but if for unforeseen circumstances you do miss a session you will be emailed and invited to come slightly earlier to the next session to catch up.
