ARTS 2: Regression Through Body Work
CLA is proud to announce its second mega event !!
The theme this year is “Regression through Body Work” and introduction to the world of Shamans.
It is with great respect that we will pay tribute to one of the most significant contributors in the field of Regression Therapy– Roger Woolger!
ROGER J. WOOLGER, PH.D, was a Jungian analyst, regression therapist and lecturer with degrees in psychology, religion and philosophy from Oxford and London Universities. Training and teaching since 1975, Roger used everything from Sufism to Western mysticism to Shakespeare–-teaching with humor through poetry, music, story and meditation. He found a therapeutic and spiritual value in this method, which entails trauma release, psychodrama, deep body therapy, Tibetan "bardo" work and shamanic spirit release. This synthesis is today called Deep Memory Process (DMP).
He was the co-founder of EARTh with Hans Tendam, Marion Boon and others.
He has authored many books such as Other Lives, Other Selves: A Jungian Psychotherapist Discovers Past Lives, The Goddess Within: A Guide to the Eternal Myths That Shape Women's Lives, co-written with Jennifer Barker Healing Your Past Lives: Exploring the Many Lives of the Soul and Body Psychotherapy and Regression: The Body Remembers Past Lives. He was one of the contributors to Regression Therapy: A Handbook for Professionals, by WInafred B Lucas
The world lost Roger Woolger in 2011 before we could meet and learn from him. However, ARTS 2 presents an opportunity to have the following 4 presenters who have at various times worked with Roger Woolger in different capacities.
What does the term SHAMAN mean?*
The actual term, “shaman” refers to medicine men or women who are the healers, teachers and sages. It is an ancient spiritual and healing practice found throughout the Americas and all traditional cultures in the world – India, Tibet, Russian, Central Europe and practiced most actively today in the Americas. It’s interesting, that shamans walked the earth for more than 5,000 years when they did not have any means of communication or connection with other medicine men or women on other continents then, yet they all practice very similar spiritual and healing traditions even today!
“Shamanism is not a course but a life journey.
It is a schooling which focuses on experience, not knowledge.”
Shamanic healing practices help us reconnect to the earth and to our own inner nature because they are founded on dis-inhibiting the immune system, and exhilarating the body’s ability to heal itself so that we can return to our natural state of wellness and being. In so doing, we discover that we are not walking the world alone, but are fully supported by an inexhaustible resource – spiritually, energetically, emotionally.
Shamans teach us to develop our minds, our own wills, and our own power and bring them into the world – in short, they teach us how to be medicine men and women in our own right.
