Jana Ziman/Guru Bhai Kaur

Jana practices Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) and works with individuals and groups. IBP establishes a deep sense of authenticity and well-being, a somatic sense of constancy, a foundation for inner wisdom, and teaches mental health skills for resolving emotional fragmentations. Somatic movement and breath work release old body mind traumas, outworn beliefs and behavior patterns held in body, and uncovers transpersonal-existential themes.

EMBODIED INTEGRATION OF TRANSPERSONAL EXPERIENCES

A one-day workshop offering practical tools for living awareness and applied consciousness.

Yellowpoint, Vancouver Island

Saturday June 24, 2017 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Transpersonal psychology is a sub-field or “school” of psychology that integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience with the framework of modern psychology. The integration of transpersonal experiences into daily life can often present a challenge to clients working with unconventional modalities or altered states of consciousness and to therapists concerned about the optimum outcome for their clients. Yet it is the integration of the experience and not the experience itself where the real work of healing takes place. Working with somatically based practices of Kundalini Yoga, energetic boundaries, and self awareness, this workshop will offer practical tools for clients and therapists alike.

Your guide will be Jana Ziman/Guru Bhai Kaur, teacher and therapist working with groups since 2003

We will create a sacred space where small objects of special importance are welcome with you, as well as your Spirit Guides and Ancestors. With set intention we will begin our journey of self-exploration. The morning practice will be dedicated to Kundalini Yoga, which awakens vitality and a sense of aliveness in the body. It is suitable for all age, body, gender, state or shape. Known as Yoga of Awareness, Kundalini offers a unique blend of breathing techniques, kriyas, meditation, mantra and deep relaxation.

In the afternoon, we will explore energetic boundaries, using body as a sensor, techniques for grounding, self-awareness, inner peace and stability. Prepare for outdoors should weather permit. Allow flexible timing at the end for the closing circle. Journals, blankets and meditation pillows come handy. Dress in layers, ideally in loose and natural clothing. A water bottle and consistent hydration is a must for an optimal outcome. This group is limited to 12 people.

Jana understands from her own life that illness, major challenge, or shift can serve as a true blessing and become a portal to awakening. Jana holds many degrees and certificates, but nothing bears more value to her than a direct experience, integration of practices into daily life, and a practical ways of walking the talk. She is passionate to share simple approaches in various communities around the world. Her main resources are Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, IBP – Integrative Body Psychotherapy, and Earth based practices. Her studies and experiences in transpersonal field, world spiritual traditions, plant medicines, shamanism, Medicine Wheel, Ayurveda, etc. all confirm for her the same: Life is a somatic experience. The physical body is a very sophisticated tool for the soul to learn how to be a human and live a vital, meaningful and fulfilling life. Everyone is equipped to do so, because our true essence is of Love and Light. There are no enemies, only tough teachers. Jana’s dynamic and graceful style of establishing Body-Home for the Soul under any life circumstances delivers assurance, empowerment, gratitude, and creative spark to invent one’s own user manual for a human body.
