WHAT IS VIVRELAN?
Vivrelan™ is a holistic life awareness process that uses somatic education principles. Based on direct experience and understanding that we are a microcosm of the macrocosm Earth, existing in a plenum of vast cosmic context.
Like earth itself, we are water based life forms orchestrated and evolved by an immanent life intelligence, becoming explicit as biological intelligence. It can be conceived as a field (fields within fields) of emergent coherent ordering that orchestrates and is bodily expression of being or physis from ancient Greek meaning “to become” and also “nature”.
Vivrelan™ Practitioners (VIP) use gentle touch to guide clients’ engagement of their innate fluidity and sensory capacities, supporting and increasing awareness of the polyrhythmic and varietal movements of life intelligence as it organizes, conducts and maintains living experience. These movements are non-linear, spiral, wave, circular, pulsing, undulating, fluctuating and effulgent. Vivrelan™ supports movement awareness, self awareness, self-regulation, co-regulation, creativity, resourcing, reorganizing, and renewal which the underlying flow of life intelligently orchestrates.
WHY IS IT A PROCESS?
Vivrelan™ is not a technique applied to someone. Life is an evolutionary, emergent and generative process. Vivrelan honors this by listening and bringing awareness to this process. Doing so supports embodied awareness of the vastness of life. It is a holistic awareness approach to wellbeing based on the practitioner’s soft, listening, gentle touch and awareness of movements that support the client to experience themselves in new, non-habitual and creative ways. Vivrelan can often induce deep relaxation, a by-product can be the resolution of imbalances. It can be considered a form of education. Through experiential awareness it introduces new ways of sensing, feeling, moving and relating. The experiential learning process transforms our relationship and understanding of the body, movement, life experience and perception in a gentle and progressive manner.
We often create paradigms as a way to organize information or understand something. They are a model – a representation. Often there can be a perceptual challenge that occurs in interpreting the model/paradigm for that which is trying to be understood or being guided to become aware of, by the model. This can be problematic. Paradigms can then become a constraint, self and other limiting, static and perhaps entropic at some point, rather than a creative act that supports exploration, discovery and freedom. Humanity is continually generating various paradigms and they can be a wonderful creative act that supports deepening understanding, growth and flourishing. Vivrelan™ is a way to orient with the immanent ground substrate of life and engage the generative living processes that can support a greater sense of well-being.
Why is Vivrelan™ a holistic life awareness process rather than Energy Medicine?
The word “holistic” has come to mean many things over time and to be applied in many ways. Often the various methodologies of touch get reduced – and this achieves a purpose for the aim of the methodology and for creating a model for the world it inhabits – massage or bodywork addressing the tissue and structure, energy medicine working with the subtle energy systems of the body. These have a holistic lens applied to the approach or model that has been reduced to focus on certain specifics. They are very valuable approaches and do much to help people. Often when we try to understand something we apply an existing model or paradigm that we know – to that which we are trying to understand.
To ask if Vivrelan™ is energy medicine or energy healing would be reasonable to ask. Vivrelan™ is a holistic life awareness process as it learns with and observes the various movements of life, evolving in each of us. It engages the implicit intelligence within the movements. Using somatic principles, a creative and exploratory approach to embodied biology is a focus – all the different layers of bodily-being (physis) such as cells, tissues, matrices inclusive of energy, vibration, light and space. It is life that is the process. Vivrelan™ is an approach that supports awareness and engagement with the unfolding process of life and lived experience – without reducing the holistic experience to an existing paradigm. It is simple – yet the learning and understanding to create the simplicity is a journey of complexity. It also honors that much about life is simply a mystery beyond the categorical constructs and language that we use.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION?
A Vivrelan™ session can occur in different settings and lasts between one and one-and-a-half hours. The client is covered in
loose comfortable clothing at all times, and usually lays upon a table or mat. Gentle touch and movement awareness support an experience that releases, relaxes and dissolves conditioned mental, affective/emotional states, body tensions, and patterning. Practitioners often enter a meditative state and with gentle conversation and calm presence support a client in finding their way
to an improved sense of bodily being. Practitioners may have felt-senses and perceptions arrive in them, and may ask orientating questions and provide touch, that may collect impressions and feelings to support their clients in a collaborative relational process.
