Phases of the Inherent Treatment Plan

Although healing processes may take a multitude of forms, as the inherent treatment plan unfolds, a number of common phases emerge. Within a clinical context, the nature of this unfolding process is dependent upon certain practitioner skills.

Practitioners develop ability to:

  • allow the mind to still, shift out of self-forms and ego states, and enter a state of presence, the being-state.
  • orient to Source and the forces of creation that emerge from Source.
  • sense the presence of primary respiration within and around oneself.
  • sense primary respiration in relationship to the client’s midline, body and arising process
  • negotiate a clear relational field and safe holding environment.

Students of a biodynamic approach learn to:

  • establish a wide perceptual field
  • negotiate the quality of their physical contact
  • negotiate the distance of their attention from the client’s system and midline.

As the practitioners hold a respectful and appropriate listening field, the next step of the inherent treatment plan emerges as the settling of this relational field. Once basic trust is established, the practitioner may sense the conjoined practitioner-client field (the relational field) seems to settle and deepen. This may manifest as qualities of settling, stillness and expansion.

The next phase is what I call the holistic shift, where a shift to resources and primary respiration emerges.

Once the holistic shift deepens, then healing processes naturally begin to emerge. These are not factors of practitioner analysis, but of decisions made by the potency of the Breath of Life.
