Umbilical Dynamics: Relationship Begins in the Womb

With Matthew Appleton and Jenni Meyer

A four day residential course, explores how our first relationship, which is mediated prenatally by the umbilical cord influences all subsequent relationships. The course is largely experiential, supporting participants to explore how their experience of what came through the umbilical cord prenatally and at birth set up survival strategies that still operate unconsciously in later life. This is especially evident in our relationship with food, money and intimacy. With an emphasis on safety and containment participants are supported to research their own unique experience through regressive exercises and find new possibilities alongside the survival strategies they learnt prenatally. The experiential work is supported by some theoretical teaching. Dates for the next Umbilical Dynamics course in the UK will be announced soon. For more details please click here. For details of the Umbilical course Dynamics in other countries please go toInternational Courses’.
