In the embryonic period the human body develops in a continuous metamorphosis of shapes and form processes. The growth gestures of the embryo can be understood as a preliminary exercise to the subsequent physiological and psychological functions.

Course content

The embryo (and thus the human being) appears as a kind of emphatic balance between antipathy and sympathy in relation to the environment and the world. This polarity appears to be essential for humans and suggests the two-unity of spirit and matter.

This phenomenological embryology helps us recognize the true human form, i.e. body shapes and functions are expressions of body and mind. Possible answers to questions like "Where do we come from?" and "What is a human being?" are sought in the human design. The view of phenomenology that is practiced here leads to a process morphology, which overcomes the limitations of the Cartesian anatomy: a true morphology of body and soul with your entire body being an expression of the human soul! Essential for every complementary therapist.

Course aims

  • Penetrating into the spiritual essence of the human being
  • Relationships between spirit, soul and body are investigated
  • Threefoldedness of the human being: microcosm and macrocosm, human development and incarnation
  • Dynamic view of the human body as a living organism
