Integral Health with Ben Calder

  • Interview with Phil Steward of Assessment Led Bodywork on Bowen Technique

    21 JUN. 2024 · In the next of our series of interviews, we are excited to have Phil Steward as our guest. Phil is the brains behind the most recent School of Bowen in the UK Assessment Led Bodywork Training which has been partly inspired by his work with Graham Pennington, who Phil spent time with in Australia and was encouraged by Graham to develop his approach to teaching. We explore why he's taken this approach to training in the interview Phil also teaches the "Fine Tuning the Neck" workshops, a recognised CPD class with both the BTPA and CBS and we discuss the importance of that work in his expression of Bowen. This was another really fascinating interview to undertake and I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

  • Interviewing Ron Phelan on Bowen Technique for the BTPA

    14 JUN. 2024 · In the third of my new interviews, I speak to Ron Phelan, another of the really big names in the Bowen Technique world. In this interview, we discuss how Ron found his way from electrical engineering to Bowen Technique and the similarities between them, how he went on to develop his PASC - Practitioner Assessment Skills Courses and his approach to hormonal work through Bowen Technique that was pioneered by Trevor Rose. Ron talks about what he finds important in assessment and treatment in Bowen, demonstrating how much a multi-disciplinary approach can add to the core work of Bowen, especially the application of kinesiology for assessment, and his interest in using radionics in his work. He also shares with us his thoughts for where the practice of Bowen is going in the coming years and what he wants to continue with. You can learn more about Ron's work via https://pascseminars.com/  https://pascseminars.com/course-schedule/ His hormonal work has more details here https://hormonalreleasethebowenway.com/ There is the opportunity to join David Howells in the UK for the "Hormone Release the Bowen Way" seminars in July and October 2024 in Leamington Spa and details of these can be found here https://hormonalreleasethebowenway.com/classes.htm More details of Bowen practitioners in the UK can be found on our website https://www.bowentherapy.org.uk/ Thanks to Ron for his time and experience in creating this interview

  • Interviewing Michael Nixon Livy NST for the BTPA

    27 MAY. 2024 · I'm really excited to share the first of a series of interviews I'm doing for the the Bowen Therapy Professional Association (BTPA) to talk with some of the major researchers and developers of Bowen Technique to support both students and practitioners of Bowen Technique and for the public to have a better understanding of Bowen Technique and associated developments in body work. In this first interview, I talk with Michael Nixon-Livy, who has developed NST (Neurostructural Integration Technique) and the significant and important Osteospinal seminars that underpin his work. It was fascinating to hear about Michael's history and how his practice developed and was influenced by various fields in his early development. We talk about some of the differences between classical Bowen and NST and where Michael feels the field of body work is going and what we should be looking towards over the next 10 years. We also chatted a little about his upcoming visit to the UK and Europe to teach his Osteospinal seminars this spring and summer.

  • Waking the 5 Element Spirits an Interview with Sai Calder

    20 MAY. 2024 · I'm really grateful to have an opportunity to talk with my brother Sai Calder, the founder of LifeForce Qigong, about his Qigong practice and how it's evolved over the years. We talk about how he has developed LifeForce Qigong and why he felt this was a requirement for his health and well-being, his journey in self-development. We also talk about his 2024 visit to the UK and the residential retreat he'll be holding in Trigonos in Snowdonia, North Wales, entitled "Waking the 5 Element Spirits - A Light of the Inner You" Embarking on an expansive journey through the realms of Qigong and personal growth, my brother, Sai Calder, and I delve into the intricate fabric of Life Force Qigong, a practice deeply entwined with the essence of vitality and consciousness. Sai is set to lead an immersive retreat titled “Waking the 5 Elements Spirits: A Light of the Inner You” from September 2nd to 6th, set against the breathtaking backdrop of Snowdonia in the UK, at Trigonos. This venue promises an enriching experience with its stunning views, organic culinary offerings, and opportunities for lake swimming amidst the natural beauty. Sai’s journey with Qigong has been a lifelong expedition, beginning in his youth, influenced by various teachers and practices including yoga and meditation. This path has taken him across the globe, from the UK and Europe to India, Thailand, and eventually Bali, attracting many to the profound energetic practices he’s mastered. Sai describes Qigong as a life passion that offers holistic benefits, encompassing health, spiritual connection, and personal evolution. This commitment to Qigong, Sai notes, is akin to investing in a lifelong venture that continually enriches his life.
