Formative Embodiment (FE) is an integrative approach providing key yet under-appreciated elements of successful therapeutic practice. It was developed by Dr. Jim Feil based on influences from the ‘Formative Psychology’ of Stanley Keleman, Craniosacral Biodynamics, Polarity Therapy, Pre- and Perinatal Therapies and Focusing.

Formative Embodiment has three main pillars:

  1. Formative process - starting with conception, this process actively continues throughout one’s lifetime. The development of effective forms to survive and thrive is a priority for the organism. This formative impulse is at the heart of FE.
  2. Somatic orientation - there is no real understanding of our experience without direct listening to the body. FE evokes untapped bodily resources, organized around homeostasis, to support healing and competencies in life.
  3. Energetic foundation - the human being is powered by an energy circuitry. This has been mapped in several ancient traditions and has its modern version in quantum science. Energy is the body’s currency, and vitality is its great joy.

This (r)evolutionary course is being offered for the first time in the UK and is designed to enhance your skills by providing:

  • A simple, yet operative understanding of how brain and body work together, creating our foundational, orienting memories and internal body maps.
  • An acknowledgement of the centrality of action and behaviour in structuring our lives, taking into consideration our biology, genetic inheritance, survival needs, social and cultural contexts, and our personal goals, desires and dreams.
  • Tools to equip practitioners and clients with skills, forms and behaviours to competently and satisfactorily handle critical life situations.
  • An effective language, both verbal and somatic, that helps to access our deeper life processes.
  • A path to coherent embodiment.
