Welcome to this beautiful journey of learning and growth. This program has been build based in the last 20 years of learning, experiencing and growing. We feel honoured to support your personal journey growing within as well as a facilitator helping others on their breakthroughs uncovering the damaging beliefs that they had carried within for years.

This training, composed by four modules of 50h contact hours and 50h mentored online hours, is for body workers, yoga teachers, therapists, sex and intimacy coaches, trauma therapists, Tantra practitioners, and all facilitators, therapists or practitioners using any other body-based modality in their work or life.

Any facilitator in order to hold space for others must have done the work on themselves.

“In the past 20 years of work and practice, I have known times when a client has left free of pain after a session and myself  waking up the next day with their pain in my body. I know today that this is is a common phenomenon in the healing world and that can happen to you as well.

Because with this work, we expose our subtle energy in order to open the healing process and facilitate emotional transformation for large groups of people or individuals with severe or moderate trauma. Every facilitator who takes responsibility for the emotions of others is going to experience, at some point and irreversibly, experience some form of burnout. Acknowledging this is important, as it is equipping ourselves with the right tools to maintain strength to bring us every time back to the centre.

Through my daily yoga practice and other effective techniques, I have developed over the many years of experiencing this journey, effective ways to heal myself back. With proper grounding, staying centred, focused and present, we can give our best to those to whom we hold space for. A clear, neutral and strong space in which the other can shine and you can stay intact.”

~ Beta Lisboa

We will be guiding you into a transformative shamanic journey through layers of the Self so that you can emerge integrated and ready to hold space for your clients.

the techniques you will learn during this training

Vital Essence Trauma Release Breathwork

The trauma healing VE Breathwork is a profound transformative healing process. In a very shamanic process, the client is inspired to find and awaken the power of healing within. Once old wounds and traumatic events are released and transformed, individuals begin to regain lost soul parts and remember the magic of who they truly are. This process is a true call to one’s full potential to bring wholeness and healing back into their own lives, to the lives of those they love, and to the world at large. In daily sessions, you will have the experience of breathing and holding space for each other. The technique is based on a circular breathing with the use of some TRE postures to support the flow of kundalini energy move throughout the body. We prepare the body prepare the body beforehand with some very effective Fascia release exercises facilitated by Yin Fascial Yoga and Myofascial Release therapy. Once the body is open and ready, the session is supported with shamanic music and all the main elements learned during this training.

Trauma Release Exercise

TRE® is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.

The Polyvagal Theory

For many of us in the trauma world, the focus of treatment had been shifting away from conscious thoughts and cognitions. The final piece of a puzzle appeared with the development of Polyvagal Theory (Porges, 2011). It provided a theory and a biological basis for what was clinically obvious: The sense of danger that overwhelms people with PTSD wells up from below neo-cortex! It is not verbal! Cognitions do not create the perception of danger. The body-based perceptions of danger create cognitions! Polyvagal Theory also provided a solid theoretical and biological framework for the rapid and unusual results of “tapping”. Polyvagal Theory helps to explain the rapid down regulation of overwhelming affect both from the intrapersonal perspective and from the interpersonal perspective.

The Wheel of consent

When it comes to relating, the Wheel of Consent is a model of consent that distinguishes between the ‘doing’ aspect of any dynamic – who is doing – and the ‘gift’ aspect – who it is for. Once the distinction between those two aspects is clear, the entire dynamic becomes clear, which brings ease, sensuality, confidence, self-responsibility and freedom to the interaction. We guide you through somatic activities in which you experience each of the four quadrants of the Wheel of Consent. Your experience then becomes the foundation for understanding the Wheel and using it in your sessions. The Wheel of Consent offers a very important foundation of clear boundary to establish trust between client and facilitator.

Inner Child Work

Inner Child work is a psychological term used to describe the part of our adult psyche or personality that was created from childhood experiences and relationships. It represents the child we once were and it remains with us throughout our lives regardless of our age. For this reason, everyone’s inner child is different – with distinct personalities, needs and struggles. However, at the same time, there are often similar themes and needs for each inner child, such as needing to feel loved and safe. We work with meeting, acknowledging, loving, and integrating these parts of ourselves.

Developmental Trauma

(exciting information coming soon)

Neuro-Linguistic Programing (NLP)

NLP is an attitude, methodology, and technology that teaches how to improve the quality of life. It is an educational tool that teaches people how to communicate more effectively with themselves and others (their clients). It is designed to help people have personal freedom in the way they think, feel and behave as well creating a more safe and clear communication with their clients.

Shadow Work

All disassociations have their foundation in the unconscious shadow. We will work with how to recognise them and reintegrate them into your being toward wholeness. The further we push these shadow expressions from ourselves, the more disassociated we become from them. Compassion is reuniting these elements into 1st person and reclaiming the fractures from the psyche, recognising those parts of ourselves that we project onto others as aspects of ourselves. Using the 3rd, 2nd, 1st person technique, we can directly recognise these aspects and re-integrate them.
