IIBA Presents - Rigid Character: Description of Phallic to Hysterical Character

  • 29 Nov 2022
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Online

Short summary

Alexander Lowen believed that our thoughts were so powerful that they formed energy patterns within the body to shape us. Liane Zink will finish the webinar series 2022 teaching about the last predominant character type: Rigid character. 

A rigid character limits the energy flow in the body because as a child she/he was told "no" so often that she/he makes a commitment to control her/his world. Liane Zink will teach bioenergetic strategies to help rigid clients heal and how they can begin to enjoy the pleasure of not having to do anything.  

Learning objectives


1. Understanding the structure of Phallic and Hysterical characters according to Alexander Lowen and other authors.

Presented by Liane Zink
