This fall, we will be offering a course on “Armour, Anger, Health and Happiness” at Dynamis Health Centre.
Course Description: This 8-week course will provide an overview of Wilhelm Reich’s contributions to our understanding of health, sexuality, child-rearing, and political action. Special attention will be paid to his teachings on muscular and character armour: how it develops, the impact that it has on our health and our relationships, and methods for doing away with it when it no longer serves us. Our understanding of muscular and character armour has a direct impact on our involvement in any therapeutic process. This course is recommended for those wanting to assume a more active role in their own remediation and are interested in learning more about the history of dynamic medicine. Each class will consist of a multi-media presentation followed by a question-based discussion and (optional!) take-home exercises.
