Ann Bradney writes, "There is a state in which you are fully alive, authentic, and spontaneous. You are open to all of your feelings, connected to your strength and your truth. You are not afraid to know anything about yourself. I call this radical aliveness. In this state you embrace your creativity and see life in all its possibilities.
"Standing in the way of this are chronic patterns formed in your past to survive. These live as frozen feelings and history in your body and no longer serve you. "Radical Aliveness is a powerful, body-based system that evolved from Core Energetics. It frees the frozen feelings and history in your body by working with the blocked and held energy. It helps you reconnect with deep parts of the self that you disconnected from as a child. It uncovers the power and goodness at the source of your most destructive patterns. It leads you to connection with your deepest essence.
"In this workshop, you will work individually and in groups to understand, transform, and release the past as you deeply explore, experience, and express your blocked and held energy. You will work on your relationship to yourself and explore relating to others in radically alive ways. You will find what stands in the way of your full potential for life."
