Non-dual bodywork as a methodology to improve self-awareness was developed in Hungary, by psychologist and yoga instructor Nóra Pecsenka, who created her own style of body- and dance therapy. Non-dual bodywork does not aim at healing mental disorders but endeavours to accompany individuals on their journey to fulfill their fullest potential, in other words, the state of whole-ness. On the level of personality, the processes also allow the embodied mind to be revealed and shaped by the phenomena that come to surface in the here and now.
Non-dual bodywork focuses on the following areas of conscious experience:
Pre- and perinatal stage, which offers somatic insight into conception, fetal existence and birth. These psychological periods of human development are pre-verbal in nature, therefore the customary “talking” therapies promoting cognitive processing are not the most successful in reaching before-and-around-birth patterns. In non-dual bodywork processes, we let go of words and identify the phenomena of the body-mind, thus discovering the innermost workings of our psyche.
Interpersonal, relational dimensions, which allow one to identify their primary and often transgenerational patterns via the movement of body and consciousness.This way we can gain insight into our attachment styles, intrapsychic functions and can identify, rewrite and improve our human bonds. The relational aspect of non-dual bodywork contributes to having a more authentic and freer life.
Developing and integrating inner resources. Naturally, it is important to identify our blocks and traumatic experiences, yet it is crucial to cultivate states of abundant inner resource. In non-dual bodywork processes, we pay special attention to the replenishment of resources, the improvement of inner peace and calm self-awareness.
Transpersonal plane, where our experiences are hardly translatable into words but where we can access our true self and the interconnected realms of existence.
In non-dual bodywork processes the body and mind move freely in a combination of individually or group focused, as well as dyadic and triadic, easy-to-follow practices. The groups and workshops are usually facilitated by two instructors who have had both first-hand experience of the bodywork technique and have participated in group leadership training and supervision. The groups embrace confidentiality and offer a safe environment with clear boundaries for all participants.
