INSTITUTE PROGRAMS > INDIVIDUAL HANDS-ON SESSIONS
Hands-on sessions allow for a more precise approach to the individual's situation than in breath and movement groups or classes. Though both group work and individual hands-on sessions approaches can be experienced and processed on their own, these two approaches are excellent complements for one another.
An individual session lasts one hour. We encourage clients to start with a series of at least 5 - 10 sessions to foster process and development that can bring changes leading to balance and improvement of state of health.
Prices for Individual sessions are:
$90/hour with Institute director
$80/hour with Institute staff
If you choose to pay with your credit card through PayPal, there will be an additional fee of about $3.00 payable to MIBE with cash or check.
If you pay in person with cash or a check, there are no extra costs.
In Hands-on sessions - also called Breath Dialogue - the client lies on a low padded table. The Practitioner works with hands on the clients body to connect with the client's natural breath. The work is experiential and based on the client's physical sensation of breath movement. Through the practitioner's hands the client receives "questions" posed to the breath in its undisturbed state. These questions invite breath to develop throughout the whole body and its being. The client's natural breath answers in its individual way, as it develops in the precise and appropriate amount for the client to understand and integrate changes that occur.
The client recognizes and senses a new form of growth which brings him or her closer to balance and well-being. The measure of substance that is processed comes from the potential of the clients natural breath for healing and balance, rather than from a concept or plan made by the practitioner. Consequently, the responses of the clients breath guide the practitioner to the next "breath question". This way both client and practitioner have the assurance that the clients individual potential for growth and integration is respected and supported.
Although the client's range of expression is unlimited, the practitioner encourages a dialogue that happens through the breath to support an experience that can lead to a new understanding of Self and Self responsibility.
