Innate, safe, organic environment, own pace, no rules, no pre-requisite, excellent results/outcomes.Liz, Surrey, UK Simple, profound, life changing. Amanda, Godalming, UK

I have been in lucky enough to have been in the presence of many great healers and teachers such as the Dalai Lama, Dakalos of Cyprus, Sai Baba in India, Drunvalo Melchizedek, and John Veltheim and I can now say Søren Ventegodt ranks among the best of today’s healers. He has an intuitive insight that is able to cut through the dross and get right to the gold. I have always sought out healers that can go right to the source and give you what is needed to make profound shifts in life. Søren is one of those healers. The session I had with Søren immediately shifted my perspective and I was able to take the direction I needed in life. My body began immediately to shed the rigid holding patterns that were keeping me in the same old patterns. Thank you Søren. Love Terryann Nikides, Canada

What I look for most in a therapist is someone who has strong enough insight to see beyond the facades, the strength to challenge me to live beyond them, and the ability to anchor me in the process of making that change. This description sums up my experience of working with Søren. He wastes no time in getting to the heart of the matter; challenging any and all reasons for staying stuck. Søren has an uncanny ability to anchor with compassion and sensitivity, while simultaneously challenging every aspect of one’s comfort zone. His work is quite remarkable and I highly recommend him. Thank you Søren. Esther Veltheim, Florida, USA

 

Personal development

Going into this, my first course, I was wondering how a few days could significantly improve my quality of life. Very quickly, thanks to Søren’s skillful insight, major shifts started happening. Now, over two months later, these fundamental shifts and yes, improved quality of life, remain and feel permanently anchored. There have been a few major turning points in my life and this first course stands out as a profound catalyst of all that has gone before. If you feel “stuck” in any (or all!) aspects of life, I would highly recommend Søren’s courses as a very efficient way to (re)discover the joy of life. Thank you so much again to Søren, his support team and all the participants: you all contributed to this amazing experience. Brian Mitchell, BodyTalk Practitioner, Paris France June 2012

This work that Janu facilitates is extremely profound and outstanding. It goes straight to the source and cuts through all the crap. Well, we are the truth, the source, the life. It is just to realise this. This approach is so simple and so deep. It hits the nail on the head. I love all the aspects of the process from the talking on a one-to-one, in the group and also the bodywork. There are also a few co-facilitators who are absolutely wonderful and magnificent who also helped me on the journey. I am truly grateful to both Søren and his team of beautiful people. Aoife Hayes, Guildford, UK, June 2012

A safe place to explore aspects of my personality that I would never share in my day-to-day life. Becky Clare, Guildford June 2012. I loved all the support and help that I received from Søren. He is very wise and knowledgeable. The teachings that he has taught me are great and something that I can always use at home. I have really enjoyed my time with him. Eve Franklin, Guildford, UK June 2012

The course left me feeling complete and at one with myself. I thank Søren for his expertise, knowledge in what is considered by many as very ambiguous subject/topic. I would have liked to have had a few written notes/handouts to have taken away – just on things Søren talked about – nothing too detailed. Jane Thomas, Guildford, June 2012

An amazing experience and cannot wait for the next course in April.I cannot describe what happened, but it has reignited my marriage, work and life in general. It’s like having Botox without the needles! I feel younger and free. Would recommend to anyone. Jane Hardy, UK February 2012

Once again Soren’s course gave me the chance to look deeper inside of my self and once again found out how much I have to understand and let go of. It feels that my truth is shining through the cracks a bit more. Alice Najmanova Therapist, UK February 2012

This course cannot be described in words. There is no label or description to be put on it to give it its true value. All I can say is that the 3 days with Søren and the group has changed me and the way I think and feel. I am now comfortable with myself. Something changed within me and I don’t know what it is. I am calm, relaxed and have no worries. I am free from my damaging thoughts and beliefs- I really do feel different! Thank you to everyone involved in this course. Thank you Søren for waking me up! Amy O Mara , Ireland March 2011

This course made my dreams a reality. I am now free! Nothing will prepare you for this course. Arrive with no expectations and will leave without the shackles of life. Finally being free. I wouldn’t change anything about this course but would help make it part of contemporary life! Will Reeves, Ireland March 2011

Freedom, feeling of security and warmth, not following set rules and plans. I loved the feeling of letting go and surrendering to being. Finding inner peace and calmness and knowing I’m safe – truly safe. I have found what I have been searching for, despite not knowing what it is I have found! Michelle Murphy, Ireland March 2011

It allowed me the safety to renew my true self. The support I needed to find this. It taught me to take the doing out of healing and just being is enough – it is everything! Kate Ahern, Ireland March 2011

There are no words to describe this course, only the feelings and that it’s ok to feel, with feelings comes acceptance and freedom. I found myself again. I liked being released from my head and opening up to my sexuality and all the love and joy that it too can bring to me. I am free and safe to love and be loved. I am strong. Just continue to…….just be! Thank you Søren Noelle O Callaghan, Ireland March 2011

I am astonished by Søren‘s work: there is safety, deep peace, softness & playfulness. From the first moment I felt I have been invited to do the real „jump“, and I did it.. I felt me. I feel that Søren is like my teacher, partner and a guide on a spiritual journey. Thank you! I am very grateful to have met you and I am looking forward to the next meeting. Milada Chalupová, Coach, Prague Nov 2011

I enjoyed every word from Sørens heart…. A balm!! The energy of the group was really nourishing. I enjoyed every moment of this weekend. Taranatha Fosca Di Gabriele, Researcher , Prague Nov 2011

Before my three days with Janu, I was juggling all my important responsibilities – being a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend, an employee and a good and likeable person. The juggling act was impossible and I kept on dropping responsibilities within my act, I kept on juggling for over 30 years feeling unsatisfied, I knew I wasn’t doing anything to my full potential. Throwing in many emotions into my juggling act; stress, guilt, fear, anger and sorrow. I suffered from extreme lows and felt as if I was getting nowhere, experiencing only a few glimmers of true happiness. Three days with Janu taught me, my simple, happy, and calm way of living replacing my well practised juggling act. I am now a happy and content, which makes me a great mother, wife, daughter and friend with calm and joy in everything I do. The changes were simple and clear but I needed Søren’s years of experience to show me. I will be back for more. Rebecca, Guildford ,UK Nov 2011

I liked the clarity and directness of Sørens answers the simplicity and usefulness of his work that has no unnecessary extras. A view that nobody has been able to show me till now. David Pavlíček, Manager, Prague Nov 2011

I loved this course. I feel now that I don’t have to keep looking for people and things to “fix” me. Everything I need is inside of me and I am supported by the universe. Thank you Søren. Michelle Moynihan, Ireland March 2011

The course pushed my boundaries and made me re-evaluate situations that I have been carrying around for too long. I came on this course knowing nothing about what we were going to do or come out with and this was excellent as the wonder and awh is what the weekend gave me back. It gave me freedom and a sense of calmness that I didn’t even realized I had lost. I am reborn. Thank you Søren. Kathy Shiels, Ireland March 2011

I felt safe to say what I wanted and needed and not be judged. I would change nothing about this course. To me the course was tough at times because there was no way out of looking at myself deeply. It was a very cosy, intimate place to work in and very safe environment. Even though I will not be able to explain what happened to anyone about the course, something big has changed in me. Geraldine Long, Ireland March 2011

I loved the not knowing what to expect but knew I would get what I needed. The lack of structure was very refreshing. I came on this course knowing I would have insight and learning. I needed them, but with my qualified mind I could not see what I needed. Now after 3 days I see and am melting my need to be proud and I understand that I thought it was keeping me safe but now know it was what was stopping me from having my freedom. Thank you, with much love. Moira Geary, Ireland March 2011

I liked the honesty, intimacy and the understanding. I feel that the course had helped me shed the heavy load of life that I was carrying a load I was quite unsure of. I feel more peaceful and calm now. Diane Hannagan, Ireland March 2011

I came expecting to learn “how to”. I guess I wasn’t expecting it to be about me! (How silly). So, I guess nothing happened and everything happened. I learned nothing but I learned everything. I spoke nothing but I spoke everything! I was and I was not, I am and I am not. So where to now? I don’t know- I have just surrendered. Surrendered to love! Anonym, Ireland March 2011

Simple – profound – transforming! Søren is a breath of fresh air with his kind, generous, sincere and sometimes humorous approach. He creates a secure, safe environment where participants can explore and unfold into. The teachings are simple, yet so utterly profound. This experiential workshop gives participants a reference point to what is beyond words and concepts. Søren reminded us all that living from the heart is natural to human BEINGS, of the power of it and how to get in touch with this blissful state. It has been humbling and a privilege to be part of this. Søren, thank you so much for coming to the UK and sharing your wisdom. Gudrun Wiedemann, Holistic Therapist & Søren’s course co-ordinator, UK Feb 2011

This is the most genuine ‘course’ that I have been on, which brought me straight back to what really matters: LOVE – seeing my true self. From Søren’s example I feel a lot safer to just be myself – I feel a lot more liberated to just LIVE.Margaret Whyte, BodyTalk Practitioner Ireland May 2011 Very intense course – we can learn from each other, there is utter trust which makes it possible to let go and surrender. Ulli Kaiser, UK Feb 2011

This 3 day course was a waking up of my greatness, my divinity, my connection to the universe. When I come from a place within me of love and compassion, I am! All is well, all is good. I feel like a precious diamond, rare and beautiful. It took me 54 years to feel this beauty. God blessings on this beautiful man, may he continue to be in-service to love always. Susan Russell, Ireland March 2011

I have just taken “Defining Holistic Healing” with Søren Ventegodt in Tampa, FL prior to our International BodyTalk Conference. From the beginning you feel there is something different here, a quiet delivery of deep understanding and knowledge and an invitation to work authentically from the heart. I experienced Søren to be so loving with all of the participants and humble in his delivery of what he has come to know. He handled the group with gentleness and expertise and I personally received some wonderful revelations about myself that I know will transfer over to how I work with clients. Søren brings lightness, love and laughter to his teaching that is so refreshing and I highly recommend taking a course with him.” Gilly Atkins BodyTalk Instructor USA July 2011

This course gave a safe space to explore and resolve long standing issues. Søren’s ability to evaluate and direct us to the issues was a gift to experience and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from him. Thank you. Karen, BodyTalk Practitioner, Winchester, UK May 2011

Being in the presence of Søren Ventegodt has been truly inspirational because he simply works from the heart and there is so much power and transformation in simply that. Kat Knecht, UK Feb 2011

It is a gift to experience Søren’s workshop. His intuition and his acuity to see what is really going on, is amazing. His ability to meet each participant where they are at, and giving all the support and help needed so one can move forward. His dedication, patience and love to help everyone, to encourage the participants to aim high so they can grow to the maximum, reflect his full commitment to his work. The participants melted into a supportive and resourceful group where we could share and learn from each other. Søren, thank you so much for coming into my life and sharing your wisdom. Gudrun Wiedemann, Holistic Therapist & Søren’s UK course co-ordinator, UK Sept 2011

I appreciate the simplicity and presence. I understand that behind, underneath and around this simplicity there were many years of self-exploration and study of the world, but coming back to a place where it all becomes SIMPLE is what brings the shift in perspective. Nothing matters anymore besides the lightness, beingness and lovingness that is. Thank you. Juliana Gama, Psychologist, BodyTalk Practitioner, Clearwater, Florida, USA July 2011

I experiences things in the course that were very profound and made me feel that healing self is possible in such a simple manner. I feel free to love and to receive love and also feel that I can be myself and let others be themselves. Thank you for this wonderful course. Chantelle Rodgers, Body Talk Practitioner, Prince Albert, SK, Canada July 2011 I felt like a sculptor and the stone at the same time. I did not impose my idea on the stone but simply let the shape emerge by taking away one chip at a time! Shiobhra Stokes, Ireland March 2011

The essence of the course is presented summarized in less than 1 hour. However the value of the course is in the contributions of each individual and Søren’s comments and guidance. It is applicable to the entirety of life – professional and private. Michael, Banker, Woking, UK May 2011

Søren, you broke through my barriers. I have been trying for years and you did it! Wonderful, thank you! Sue, Woking, UK May 2011

The technique seems to be too simple. I had all the knowledge before I came on the course. I just didn’t realize it. Doors have been opened. Thank you.Julia Plant, UK Feb 2011 This course truly rocked my world. It made me see clearly under what kind of limitations and believes I had been living my entire life, how I have been making my life a very hard experience. Inger Lundberg, Sweden Sept 2011

I appreciate Søren’s commitment in supporting my journey to find the truth. He sees the obvious, when I cannot and he is lovingly dedicated to having me see as well. Petra Tunmar Lundell, BodyTalkPractitioner, Sweden Sept 2011

Søren’s commitment to get resolution for each group member is very admirable. His devotion to break through results is most inspiring. The shifts experienced in the group throughout the weekend were nothing short of ‘miraculous’ in a few cases. My own shift was ‘miraculous’ and went way beyond my perception of what was possible. Margaret Whyte, Artist & Holistic Therapist, Ireland, Sept 2011

Being aware allows me to be myself. As my true self I can give love and freedom, firstly to my life and secondly to my family, my sons, daughters and husband. The course has allowed me to: ‘Be free, feel the wind and dance naked in the rain!’ Becky Clare, UK Sept 2011

This course was a great investment in my personal development. It will be of great benefit to me through the rest of my life. Thank you Søren, you are the best. Oliver Walsh, Motor Dealer, Ireland Sept 2011

The course was beautiful in its simplicity and impact. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in inner exploration and spiritual growth. Janet Galipo, Physician, Miami, Florida, USA July 2011

I came back to myself to discover that I can’t even leave me, even when I try.Brenda Miller, Breakthrough Instructor, Brooks, Florida, USA July 2011

Thank you for integrating so beautifully into this BodyTalk matrix that simplicity and love is all that is required. My continued interest in exploring sexuality professionally and personally has been newly inspired. Pieces of my background and education in medicine, tantra, energy work, Speech therapy, communications… are all stirred up like clouds of dust… Yet I feel relatively calm in the storm and feel very curious how it may settle… “this” time. Thank you, Søren. Kristy Kenny, Free Fall Instructor, Kelowna, BC Canada July 2011

I found this course very helpful. We are unable to let go of things we cannot see. With the love and support I was able to find the courage to look deep and let go of the faulty belief systems that kept me from living the life I want. Tyla Lippai, BodyTalk Practitioner, Clearwater, Florida, USA July 2011

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this course. It really brought all the knowledge and work I have already been doing to a much deeper level – the knowledge is now sinking into more of a knowing. Søren’s facilitation was simple and beautiful.Dionne Bihari, BodyTalk Practitioner, Saskatoon, Canada July 2011

It provided me with the love and safety to open my heart. The memory of this course will allow me to stay anchored whenever I’ll be tempted to floating away. Seeing my partner “blossom”, breaking down the walls inspired me tremendously. I am so calm and happier after this course. I’m looking forward to explore the world without my story and sick/achy body. I now love my “vehicle/body*/myself. Thank you so very much!! xox for this new “lease” of life. Chantal Blommaert, Yorkton, SK, Canada July 2011

I most liked the simplicity in which you presented the material. I feel that you were getting down to the most essential essence of all things. Make-up artist, Anonym July 2011

I liked that this course brought me back to my real self. Kendal Frayer, BodyTalk Practitioner, Edmond, OH July 2011

I found gratitude for something I knew I should be grateful for but was not able. Judi Forbes, BodyTalk Practitioner, Clearwater Beach, Florida, USA July 2011

Defining holistic health allows the student to explore all aspects of the body, mind and spirit in a boundless, free and loving way. This allows changes to occur in all parts of our being. Thank you for this opportunity to experience this deep, life changing process. Anonym July 2011

Very useful and insightful course. It opened a lot of new channels for my feelings, and was very thought provoking and good basis for change work. Tracey , UK

To find my sexual energy and submerge my life in love on Søren’s course has allowed me to live as my true self. To live without fear, limitations and weakness is to be free. Gratitude forever more to the beautiful universe, human beings, love and Søren. Becky Clare, Holistic Therapist, UK May 2011

It is lovely just to be. Alice BodyTalk Practitioner, UK May 2011

Fundamental truth and love! Perhaps fewer people in attendance would have allowed more 1:1 time with Søren, better understanding of each other and deeper personal advancement Bridget McConnel UK May 2011

Opportunity to see the true nature of the body’s ability to heal myself by using love and touch. I feel a major shift in my pelvis and digestive system and all my partner did was give love and recognition to this area. Kat Knecht, BodyTalk Practitioner, Frome, UK May 2011

A phenomenal workshop 2nd time around deepened my grasp of the knowledge and I still learned/reawakened more. Anyone serious about life should take this course – for health, happiness and love. Maria Wilson, BodyTalk Practitioner Woking, UK May 2011

An excellent event for professional and personal development. Bryan Lane, Therapist, London May 2011, UK

The course has opened my eyes to a new me, to be truer and more honest in life and love so that I may be joyful in my new life. Louise, Godalming, UK May 2011

This course is unique in that it can help people to heal their lives in only 2 days. It is able to assist people in self discovery and create permanent change and to lead happier and healthier lifestyle. The course is designed to look at life objectively in a holistic way and questions our belief systems and how they have held us back form living life to the full. Colin, Southampton, UK May 2011 Søren’s ability to honour everybody’s space is true wisdom. Thank you.Laurence Udell, Chairman, UK May 2011

The course achieved everything and more to enable me to go forward and achieve my personal goals. Thanks to the wonderful tuition and support throughout the weekend, I feel a new stage of my life has begun. Helen O’Key, UK May 2011

I loved the flexibility and flow of this course seems to follow. Clearly it had structure but it was not at all ridged and embraced every individual and their personal goals. The knowledge, support and learning from others and their own love and emotions was paramount in helping and supporting my personal journey. I can imagine each course must be different and each creates its own identity and purpose to facilitate the journeys of these attending it. Zoe, UK May 2011

The concept of being love and using it was very enlightening for me and I was able to use it. Shankari, UK May 2011

Søren makes this work look so easy. We are all able to learn from it. Many thanks for allowing me to find the real me. Julia Plant, Therapist Southampton, UK May 2011

I enjoyed letting go and trusting that it will be. I think this will really help me in my practice. I’m not sure where to go from here but I trust all will be revealed.Deborah Cooney, Ireland March 2011

I liked that people had been bringing their own knowledge and support for every one of us to be able to see and learn. Not easy but worth every moment of this bumpy road. Thank you. Alice Najmanova Therapist, UK Sept 2011

I came with no expectations and found the unravelling a delicate but challenging process – with a wonderful outcome. Liz Wenman, UK Feb 2011

I liked the informality and intimacy of the group/instructor which although it was challenging for me, will (I hope) contribute to my development. And I appreciated Søren’s generosity ad and gratitude of Søren’s teaching and sessions. I loved that he laughed a lot and I love the simplicity of his approach. Thank you. Kate Banks, France Feb 2011

I loved the down to earth approach and loving approach Søren had to connect with each student making them more receptive to the material and working through their issues. I loved the strength and humour behind the brutally honest approach to give us insight into what the real issues were in our lives – no matter how hard it was to hear. Effective! Life changing! I particularly appreciated that we all had and individual goad with him to have a life changing shift and how dedicated Søren was to push us to reach higher and do his upmost to help us to get there. Søren inspired me to just be my natural ‘foolish lovely ‘self with clients. Margaret Whyte, Ireland , UK Feb 2011

Wow. A wonderful opportunity to grow as a human as well as a practitioner. Delightful from beginning to end. Eloise Ansell, UK Feb 2011

What a phenomenal experience. Søren is truly inspiring and continues to amaze and humble you. I feel I have changed in such a huge way. My heart centre was always open; I just `needed to get out of my mind to feel it and to live from it. A very big thank you. Any more workshops? I am there 10/10 x Maria Wilson, UK Feb 2011

I really liked the fact that Søren was a student of Mooji. I can see how I can take what I learnt on the course into my own practice. Sally Kingsley, UK Feb 2011

I wasn’t sure what to expect or what I could get out of the course to be honest but I had a knowing I should attend. What have I got out of it? A new awareness, acceptance and the start of more growth and the sight of I! Thank you Søren for your help, guidance, love, support and the relaxed nurturing environment that you create. Nicky Lynch, UK Feb 2011

I told my clients I was going on a course over the weekend but wasn’t sure what it was about. I am still not sure I could put it into words what it was about but I know I have a greater sense of space and peace about me. The propensity to love and the effects of that we love have been mind blowing to me. They say ‘God is love’. I feel I have been able to experience that presence over the weekend – unconditional love to take away with me in my life. Very powerful and liberating. Thank you. Stacey McIntyre, UK Feb 2011

I came on a course not knowing what to expect – it was a life changing experience that will last for a life. Amanda Weller, UK Feb 2011

I would have liked more structure at the start, to get an understanding of what is going to happen. The information and experience will be life changing. Everyone on the course has benefitted in various ways. I liked the new insight into holistic therapy treatments and the refreshing change to be led by an open, honest and sincere person. Anonym, UK February 2011

The course took me away from daily life and gave m the chance to think without the normal rules/conditions. I went home each night which gave me the space to breath and think and process. Staying here all the time would have been too surreal. I think taking the breaks made it easier for me to assimilate the changes that are coming. I felt out of my depth with some of Søren’s actions and recognize that these are my limitations/beliefs/conditioning but it still felt difficult. Talk was wonderful, touch was too much. Thank you for a wonderful weekend, for the time to feel safe and to think. Thank you. Thank you for the memories, I will work hard to make sure I don’t make an energy attachment – except for the laughter. Deborah, UK Feb 2011

This experience can bring the feeling of freedom from ideas which very often complicate our life. This feeling of freedom, freedom to breath – I have experienced the touch of love. What more to say… Karel Daňek, Pensioner Prague, Nov 2011

I really liked this course. I met with lots of very beautiful people and most importantly I found my Self. I feel very relaxed and I can see the difference between giving and receiving. Jiřina Horníková, MassageTherapist, Prague Nov 2011

It was very important to look at and let go of thinking patterns which are harmful for me. Anonym, Prague Nov 2011

I really liked that Jitka didn‘t let me to let go of my goal. Søren suggestion that I need to unleash myself and stop controlling everything. He was correct.. The „snake pit“ was the needed shock to crack my mask open.Anonym, Prague Nov 2011

Having taken several of Søren’s courses, I was wondering how well it will work being presented in English and translated into Czech. I truly feel it worked even better – with fewer words, the meaning was conveyed even more clearly. Some participants only spoke English and some only spoke Czech, yet language was no hindrance for a deep connection within the group. I loved that participants could stay overnight at the venue… very simple’ indoor camping’… the residential aspect just makes this course even more powerful. Every time I am part of one of Søren’s courses it is a gift to myself, simply ‘being’ and anchoring myself more and more in this blissful state. Thank you Søren for having come into my life. Gudrun Wiedemann, Søren’s UK course co-ordinator, Prague Nov 2011

 

Relationships/Couples

A long time before I met with Janu (Søren) I knew my relationship is not working as it could but I didn’t know how or what to change. Thanks to Janu’s wisdom we learned to see our conditioning and embrace a new relationship full of honesty, trust, joy and pure love. Thank you Janu. Alice and Patrik December 2011

Hello Søren. A little reflection on autumn course here on Langeland. Without this course, these insights, I would have missed my opportunity to grow beyond the limitations which until then had controlled a large part of my life. On the course I went all the way to the edge where I realized and understood that if I did not give up my stubbornness (ego) I would lose a deep and genuine love. With your help, Søren, I was able to surrender “me” and I got a new view of myself, my relationships and life in general. Steen’s and my relationship was broken; if we had not seen the old patterns we were stuck in. Now they were exposed quite openly, they were looked into and finally let go of. We grow and we are flourishing. We have a good life together now and take on the challenges that life and love offers us. Many loving greetings Jane, Tranebjerg, Denmark, January 2012

Dear Søren When I signed up for your summer course, it was because Jane wanted it and for my curiosity about why she wanted it. I did not think I had problems; everything went very well for me; there were perhaps some sexual differences between us, but courses were something you took to acquire technical knowledge. I was surprised. No matter how hard I looked up, I could not see the pompous guru I had expected. It took me a full day to realize; and then I began to participate, confident, with peace of mind. Especially what you said about the ego and its importance to our person and the question of who we are if we are not something we can imagine, opened doors to new discoveries. And not only pleasing ones. I saw my ego – the one who does not want any fundamental changes and is very creative to avoid them. In the weeks after the course Jane and I felt like intoxicated; everything could be done…. For the first time I had an awareness of the self’s existence in myself and saw that it does not judge anyone. And for the first time I got a reasonably clear idea of how Jane and I had come entered into an unhealthy symbiosis with each other’s egos, and that was the real problem. We had logged at each other and thought it was out of love. …. Before that insight Jane and I had to go through a slightly comical stunt on the course where we actually said “no” and “never more”, to each other. I left the course with the 5 year olds disdained anger to his mother… Next morning I was awakened by Jane, who crept into my bed, we wept and made love… Weeks after the course we found ourselves in a sort of mental vacuum in which all projections were seen and abandoned. Now, some three months after the course, I know that Jane and I have recovered a respect and a mental and physical curiosity for ourselves and each other through a new and deep understanding of ego and the nature of the Self. …Thank you because you want to use your skills and your kind awareness on others. I could have been alone now, I could have become bitter, in physical decay, but is not. I am better than ever. Love Steen Mechlenburg, Tranebjerg, Denmark, January 2012

My husband of 25 years and I came to this course, for a last attempt to make our marriage work. My hope was that we can renew the expression of our love for each other – a few weeks after the course it was clear, that this isn’t meant to be. There is a sadness of the lost premise of the love we still have for each other. There is the recognition that ‘we can’t make it work’ and that we have to go our separate ways. The insights gained from Soren’s courses is helping me to see our patterns/conditionimg and the resulting behaviours that stopped our love from flourishing. Now having separated, somehow the situation seems surreal. We both have started our new life; there are the challenges of sorting out our affairs and alongside there is a deep love for my (ex)-husband that I know, will never die. We have held each other in the pain over separating and we have cried together – and there is an immense beauty in that. We can share our love for each other – so not in the context of being a couple. There is also a deep contentment of having a new life and the insight, that every moment holds all possibilities. I am immensely grateful to Janu for sharing his wisdom, for providing a safe space to explore and learn, and for his support. Many thanks & love Gudrun Wiedemann, Guildford, UK, Summer 2012

An amazing experience and cannot wait for the next course in April.I cannot describe what happened, but it has reignited my marriage, work and life in general. It’s like having Botox without the needles! I feel younger and free. Would recommend to anyone. Jane Hardy, UK February 2012

 

Practitioner development

The incredible ability of Søren is to name the very nature of the underlying cause of the ‘outward’ complaint is certainly something invaluable to watch and experience. I have worked with many teachers to date but none was able to be as precise as Søren. It is very encouraging that in time more members of the medical profession may be shown this as a way forward. Beata, Rachowiecka, Therapist, Langley May 2011

Watching Søren work so intuitively with people is a great privilege as his individual sessions had a profound impact on people. I like the simplicity of the work he does, some of it which would take years of psychotherapy or some other form of therapy. Anonym, UK Feb 2011

It allowed me the safety to renew my true self. The support I needed to find this. It taught me to take the doing out of healing and just being is enough – it is everything! Kate Ahern, Ireland March 2011

I liked the clarity and directness of Sørens answers the simplicity and usefulness of his work that has no unnecessary extras. A view that nobody has been able to show me till now. David Pavlíček, Manager, Prague Nov 2011

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this course. It really brought all the knowledge and work I have already been doing to a much deeper level – the knowledge is now sinking into more of a knowing. Søren’s facilitation was simple and beautiful.Dionne Bihari, BodyTalk Practitioner, Saskatoon, Canada July 2011

I have just taken “Defining Holistic Healing” with Søren Ventegodt in Tampa, FL prior to our International BodyTalk Conference. From the beginning you feel there is something different here, a quiet delivery of deep understanding and knowledge and an invitation to work authentically from the heart. I experienced Søren to be so loving with all of the participants and humble in his delivery of what he has come to know. He handled the group with gentleness and expertise and I personally received some wonderful revelations about myself that I know will transfer over to how I work with clients. Søren brings lightness, love and laughter to his teaching that is so refreshing and I highly recommend taking a course with him.” Gilly Atkins BodyTalk Instructor USA July 2011

This course gave a safe space to explore and resolve long standing issues. Søren’s ability to evaluate and direct us to the issues was a gift to experience and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from him. Thank you. Karen, BodyTalk Practitioner, Winchester, UK May 2011

Being in the presence of Søren Ventegodt has been truly inspirational because he simply works from the heart and there is so much power and transformation in simply that. Kat Knecht, UK Feb 2011

It is a gift to experience Søren’s workshop. His intuition and his acuity to see what is really going on, is amazing. His ability to meet each participant where they are at, and giving all the support and help needed so one can move forward. His dedication, patience and love to help everyone, to encourage the participants to aim high so they can grow to the maximum, reflect his full commitment to his work. The participants melted into a supportive and resourceful group where we could share and learn from each other. Søren, thank you so much for coming into my life and sharing your wisdom. Gudrun Wiedemann, Holistic Therapist & Søren’s UK course co-ordinator, UK Sept 2011

I loved the not knowing what to expect but knew I would get what I needed. The lack of structure was very refreshing. I came on this course knowing I would have insight and learning. I needed them, but with my qualified mind I could not see what I needed. Now after 3 days I see and am melting my need to be proud and I understand that I thought it was keeping me safe but now know it was what was stopping me from having my freedom. Thank you, with much love. Moira Geary, Ireland March 2011

I came expecting to learn “how to”. I guess I wasn’t expecting it to be about me! (How silly). So, I guess nothing happened and everything happened. I learned nothing but I learned everything. I spoke nothing but I spoke everything! I was and I was not, I am and I am not. So where to now? I don’t know- I have just surrendered. Surrendered to love! Anonym, Ireland March 2011

I appreciate the simplicity and presence. I understand that behind, underneath and around this simplicity there were many years of self-exploration and study of the world, but coming back to a place where it all becomes SIMPLE is what brings the shift in perspective. Nothing matters anymore besides the lightness, beingness and lovingness that is. Thank you. Juliana Gama, Psychologist, BodyTalk Practitioner, Clearwater, Florida, USA July 2011

there be more of us providing “holding” space for the powerful potential of healing from ”within the heart”… Thank you for “BEING ONE”.Loesje, Armstrong, BodyTalk and BodyTalk for animals instructor, creator of “Linking Awareness-intercellular communication” BC, Canada July 2011

Opportunity to see the true nature of the body’s ability to heal myself by using love and touch. I feel a major shift in my pelvis and digestive system and all my partner did was give love and recognition to this area. Kat Knecht, BodyTalk Practitioner, Frome, UK May 2011

A phenomenal workshop 2nd time around deepened my grasp of the knowledge and I still learned/reawakened more. Anyone serious about life should take this course – for health, happiness and love. Maria Wilson, BodyTalk Practitioner Woking, UK May 2011

An excellent event for professional and personal development. Bryan Lane, Therapist, London May 2011, UK

I thought Søren was very tuned into “being present” and gave good advice about how to maintain that state. Also to be fully present to your clients. Give them 100% of your energy gives better results. Mary Grogan, Ireland March 2011

Wow. A wonderful opportunity to grow as a human as well as a practitioner. Delightful from beginning to end. Eloise Ansell, UK Feb 2011

What a phenomenal experience. Søren is truly inspiring and continues to amaze and humble you. I feel I have changed in such a huge way. My heart centre was always open; I just `needed to get out of my mind to feel it and to live from it. A very big thank you. Any more workshops? I am there 10/10 x Maria Wilson, UK Feb 2011

I would have liked more structure at the start, to get an understanding of what is going to happen. The information and experience will be life changing. Everyone on the course has benefitted in various ways. I liked the new insight into holistic therapy treatments and the refreshing change to be led by an open, honest and sincere person. Anonym, UK February 2011

I liked the openness of all participants, the friendly atmosphere, and the helpfulness. I like this type of work using touch. It is really simple and very effective way to look into one self. Jitka Vacková, Nurse, Prague Nov 2011

I really liked the fact that Søren was a student of Mooji. I can see how I can take what I learnt on the course into my own practice. Sally Kingsley, UK Feb 2011
