About this event

Drawing on Radix®, Embodied-Relational Therapy, T.A., Counselling, possibly also voicework, this residential weekend workshop will be experiential, with a combination of larger and smaller groupwork, pair work, and individual work within the wider group.

What is Radix?
Radix® is a powerful body-centred therapy that promotes change, growth, and healing. The word Radix means “root” or “source” and here refers to the flow of the life force underlying our thoughts, feelings and movements, our mind and our consciousness or spirit.
We will work with breath, movement, sound, touch, and vision to help restore the rhythmic flow of the life force throughout your being. To feel more alive, to express yourself authentically, and connect more deeply with others. Radix is a body centred approach and unlike other psychotherapies that are somatically informed, Radix has the body as the central focus with the emphasis on the somatic unfolding.

The Structure of the Workshop

After checking in on Friday 6th September, and having had dinner, we will begin that evening with an orientation to the workshop, getting acquainted with workshop participants and facilitators in your first group session.

On Saturday and Sunday, you will have opportunity to take part in both larger and smaller group work, paired work, and individual sessions within the wider group.
You are welcome to stay over on Sunday night.

Timings: Friday: arrive from 3pm, session time: 7pm – 9pm
Saturday: 9:30 to approx 7pm       Sunday: 9:30 to 5pm

Cost: Including all facilitation, 3 nights accommodation in twin shared rooms, breakfasts, and Friday evening meal: Between £500 and £370 – You choose
(Between £500 and £300 if booked before June 7th 2024 – You choose)

If you are able to pay higher up the scale, this enables us to keep the lower price available for people who need it, many thanks. Payment by instalment is welcome if this makes it easier for you.

Food: We will cook a simple meal for the Friday evening from ingredients provided by us (feel free to help cook if you wish!), and we will also provide the ingredients for a simple breakfast for Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings.
Lunches and evening meals on Saturday and Sunday can either be at a local pub, or bring food to cook or/and share. Our experience is that this works well.
