BodyTalk Access

The BT Access program is a set of five techniques taught in a one-day class that can be used by any layperson or health care provider to bring about significant improvement in health.    These five techniques include techniques to improve communication within the brain, to balance water distribution in the body, to stimulate the immune system and a Fast Aid protocols to be used in times of emergency or injury.   When used in a weekly routine, these techniques can bolster the immune system and help maintain a high level of wellness.  They can also have a profound effect on everyday injuries and illnesses, and even in first aid situations while emergency personnel are on their way.    By making these effective, simple and safe techniques available in an affordable one-day class, BodyTalk Access is truly “Health Empowerment in 10 Minutes!”

BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness

This is the most essential of the advanced courses: the consciousness work in BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness underlies the foundation of the philosophy behind the BodyTalk System and gives it practical application. BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness covers:

  • Advanced Procedure which facilitates more precise balancing and allows for more sophisticated link formulas

  • Basic Consciousness work which allows energetic balancing to address the beliefs, attitudes, and states of awareness of the client in a simple, non-invasive way
  • Advanced consciousness work which relates to the unfolding personal and spiritual growth of the client and practitioner. Practical use of this knowledge enables the practitioner to balance the right/left brain complex and assist the client towards recognition of their natural state of inner peace and harmony.

BodyTalk: Macrocosmic BodyMind

This course has a wide subject matter but is primarily concerned with the macrocosmic view of the function of the bodymind complex. Earlier modules have focused on the internal synchronization of the bodymind. We must be aware that the bodymind is also a integral player in the macrocosm and must be in synchronicity with all those factors if harmony is to occur. The elements of the BodyTalk protocol addressed in this course are as follows:

  • 21 Minor Chakras: The 21 minor chakras integrate the major joints and sense organs into the consciousness
  • 8th Chakra: Many of the tensions that we experience in life come from the genetic tendencies we inherit. We use the 8th Chakra as metaphorical portal into genetic factors to address a complex of inherited factors:
  1. Cultural influences
  2. Hereditary Influences
  3. Environmental factors
  4. Deep seated habits and trends
  5. Religious influences
  • Life Cycles: An exploration of the relationship of the microcosm and the macrocosm by exploring the relationship of external and internal rhythms
  • Chinese Clock: The rhythmic movement of energy through the acupuncture meridians at certain times of day
  • Houses: The rhythmic movement through different levels of maturation described by the Houses of astrology
  • Planets: Provide a focus for addressing the balancing of various archetypal energies in the BodyMind

Pre-requisites: BodyTalk: Fundamentals is a pre-requisite for this course. IBA membership is required for all advanced modules

BodyTalk: Matrix Dynamics

BodyTalk: Matrix Dynamics continues the model of personality formation introduced in BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness by presenting a model of sub-personality, or mask formation and an associated technique for dissolving these coping mechanisms when appropriate. Differentiation between primary, secondary, and fragmented personality masks are covered. The relationships within a group are also covered under the topic of complex matrixes, with a special focus on family matrix balance.

Pre-requisites: BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness and BodyTalk: Macrocosmic BodyMind are pre-requisites for this course. IBA membership is required for all advanced modules


Advanced Modules Integration (AMI)

This course is designed to integrate all information learned in BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness, BodyTalk: Bio-Dynamics, BodyTalk: Macrocosmic BodyMind and BodyTalk: Matrix Dynamics in addition to including a few new concepts. The emphasis is on:

  • reviewing all the principles and techniques covered in the advanced modules;
  • introducing concepts such as time variables and resource or alternative satellites that will enhance the power of any formula;
  • how all this information fits into the overall philosophy of BodyTalk;
  • how to work in a right brained way; and
  • preparing for the two advanced exams.

The goal for the AMI course is to help students become well-rounded and integrated advanced practitioners.

The practical aspect of this course allows for students to observe a minimum of 3 demonstrations each day, to engage in question and answer periods, as well as to have extensive practice time under the supervision of an Advanced Senior Instructor.

The two advanced exams will be offered on a separate day following the conclusion of the course. These exams are optional. However, both are part of the pre-requisites for receiving the Adv.CBP designation.

The pre-requisites for this course are BodyTalk: Fundamentals, BodyTalk: Principles of Consciousness, BodyTalk: Bio-Dynamics, BodyTalk: Macrocosmic BodyMind and BodyTalk: Matrix Dynamics.
