Some Questions About Spiral Praxis
Many people suffer from pain, cognitive dysfunctions, emotional distress, and movement difficulties without realizing why they might be experiencing these symptoms. Usually there is a holding pattern, a block in flow, or a persistent repetitive habit that cannot be easily shaken. But most difficulties can easily be resolved once our basic bodymind processes are understood. All of the activities in Spiral Praxis —whether they relate to bodywork, cognitive re-patterning, or movement exploration— are geared towards awakening the natural healing mechanism within all of us.
With that said, we think that most people will be very surprised to see how fast progress can be. Typically we work 1-4 sessions with people who have minor chronic injury issues; 8-12 sessions if the injury is severe but mobility is still present. Other people wish to work within an area of interest and the number of sessions will be dependent on what they want to achieve. We were able to teach one of our older students how to do the splits in one month and another to achieve his weightlifting goals in four sessions —many things are possible, but it depends on how easily a client can absorb the material.
Training in Spiral Praxis will give you an opportunity to explore a very new way of approaching bodymind-related activities. What we try to teach our students are the fundamentals of internal self-direction with the hope they will bring these principles into the fields of their choice. Beyond this, it is a process of learning which can be extremely gratifying on a personal level—Spiral Praxis can give you a life-time of learning material that can never truly be exhausted.
