Accessing our Light through our Shadow Self: Wed 1 May

Accessing our Light through our Shadow Self: Wed 1 May

It’s not about denying our Shadow Self, rather about accepting and embracing this part, which will move us beyond the pain of these aspects. We enter the dark and emerge into the Light of our True Selves.

True happiness isn’t a creation of external circumstances. Discover the means to achieve internal happiness, which will reflect in our moment-by-moment experience of life.

During this presentation Greg Villers will share processes that will help us to experience a deeper connection with our Divine heart. We will be given an experience of the “Absolute Still Point” within, where all the chatter and stories disappear and we are simply at peace. We will look at the Shadow Side of ourselves and the importance of embracing those aspects and transcending them.

What does True Power feel like? True Power is a Heart experience and the ability to access and open our Heart Centre determines our experience of our Magnificence.

As we move beyond the grip of the lower mind we access the Higher Mind of the Heart. The lower mind identifies with fear and creates that reality whereas the Higher Mind identifies with Love and creates a Love based reality.

The evening will be about helping you release fear and embrace love. It will be experiential and you will leave with an expanded awareness of your Divine Nature. As part of his presentation Greg will be sharing some of his most recent Soul Light Vibrational Essences that he creates. These are powerful tools to support us on our journey of remembrance.

Date: Wednesday 1 May – 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Koha: $10 per person ($5 residents)

We meet every other Wednesday evening 7.30-9.30pm at the Prema Lounge, Kawai Purapura

Functional Stretching: 6-7 July (Sat-Sun)

Functional Stretching: 6-7 July (Sat-Sun)

An active, multidimensional approach to recovering range of movement

with Prof. Eyal Lederman

OCNZ 13 credits CPD

Traditional stretching techniques, such as passive stretching and MET have limited contribution to recovery of movement range in many musculoskeletal conditions – Immediate: 30, short-term: 10, long-term: 00 (Cochrane Database, CD007455)

Find out why and how it can be resolved

Functional stretching has been developed over 10 years by Prof Lederman to provide a solution to the limitations of traditional stretching approaches. It focuses on active restoration of ROM, using task-specific, functional movement patterns. This approach is informed by original doctoral research carried out by Prof Lederman at the British School of Osteopathy in collaboration with the physiotherapy department at King’s College, London. This approach is also informed by research in the areas of tissue adaptation, motor control and pain and cognitive-behavioural sciences.

Functional stretching can be used to recover ROM losses in various musculoskeletal conditions including post-injury/surgery/immobilisation rehabilitation, frozen shoulder and central nervous system damage. Part of the course will also examine the role of physical therapies in pain alleviation and ROM desensitisation.

The course is open to all manual and physical therapists.

Date: 6-7 July 2013

Managing Common Shoulder Conditions: Monday 8 July

Managing Common Shoulder Conditions: Monday 8 July

A Process Approach

with Prof. Eyal Lederman DO, PhD

A practical workshop exploring the theory and management of common shoulder conditions seen in clinic. In particular, the workshop will focus on frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome and post-operative/injury/immobilisation management of the shoulder. There will be discussion of the aetiology and the pathophysiological mechanisms associated with these conditions and a review of current research findings. Many of the shoulder conditions seen in clinic are associated with complex processes that are not related to postural, structural or biomechanical predisposing factors. For this reason a process approach will be used as a model for management. In a process approach the focus is on how to support the three processes that underlie recovery – repair, adaptation and modulation of symptoms. It also explores the tissue, neurological and psychological processes that underlie the patient’s condition. The management aims to match the most suitable interventions according to these processes rather than aiming to correct structural imbalances or anomalies.

A process approach can reduce the duration of treatment/recovery time of many shoulder conditions from many months to several weeks. In the workshop participants will learn how to develop specific treatment strategies and how to match the most suitable manual techniques and exercise to the patient’s condition. The practical session will include a demonstration and practice of specific manual techniques and exercise.

How to Manage Low Back Pain: Tues 9 July

How to Manage Low Back Pain: Tues 9 July

“How to manage” evening workshops

with Prof. Eyal Lederman DO, PhD

The understanding of chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions has dramatically changed in the last two decades. Structural and postural models have been challenged and eroded by recent research findings. It has been shown that in these chronic conditions pain is unrelated to structural asymmetries, body imbalances or failure in motor control; beliefs that have dominated manual and physical therapies for over a century.

These three hour practical workshops will discuss the current research in chronic neck pain and how it impacts the management of these conditions. It will explore how the new findings/understanding can be integrated into the traditional osteopathic/manual therapy approaches to provide a more effective management.

Harmonic Technique: 12-14 July (Fri-Sun)

Harmonic Technique: 12-14 July (Fri-Sun)

with Prof. Eyal Lederman DO, PhD

OCNZ 21 CPD credits

Harmonic Technique is a classic osteopathic technique which have been researched and developed by Prof. Lederman. It is a passive form of oscillatory, rhythmic techniques that can be applied to different joint and tissues.

Research over the last four decade has demonstrated that passive movement, such as used during Harmonic technique, has important role in facilitating tissue repair and adaptation after injury. Intermittent external compression has been demonstrated to improve tissue healing as well as increasing fluid flow and reducing oedema. Passive motion has been recently shown to facilitate recovery from rotator cuff surgery and help resolve pain in frozen shoulder. These studies suggest that passive motion can be a useful clinical tool in the treatment of different musculoskeletal conditions.

Learning outcome:

  1. Understanding of the biomechanical, physiological neurological processes associated with Harmonic Technique
  2. Understanding of Influence of Harmonic technique on tissue repair, tissue fluid dynamics and adaptation.
  3. An understanding of neurological (pain alleviation and desensitisation) and psychological influences of Harmonic Technique
  4. Be able to effectively apply Harmonic Technique to most joints in the body
  5. Be able to identify conditions which may benefit from passive movement
  6. Be able to apply Harmonic Technique to specific conditions commonly seen in manual and physical therapy practice
