Module 1: 11th – 13th January 2016

Prana Hall 10:00 till 13:00 / 15:00 till 18:00

Module 2:  2nd – 4th March 2016

Module 2 is for those who have completed Module 1 and wish to continue becoming a TRE® Certified Provider.

We are happy to invite you to this Global Certification Training, centered around self-healing and self-development with TRE® – Tension & Trauma Release Exercises.  New for 2015, TRE, LLC has adopted a standardized Global Certification Training Program valid in 35 countries.

The 3 days of Module 1 will be very practical and is open to anyone – with or without a therapeutic background.  To continue with certification towards becoming a TRE® Global Provider, you will need to attend the Module II Training March 2nd – 4th, or continue on with another Module 2 Training in another country/region – see: http://traumaprevention.com/event/categories/certification-trainings/.  

The goal of Module 1 is to introduce you to the TRE® or tremor mechanism, and move through 6 x TRE® experiences over the three days.  As you deepen into your personal process you will experience the different textures of vibration, as well as a better understanding of the human organism’s experience of the tremors. Each morning and afternoon session you will be supported through the exercises and we will explore the theory behind the model.

TRE® or Trauma & Tension Release Exercises, is a somatic body based practice for anyone suffering with stress, anxiety, trauma or PTSD. It overcomes language barriers as it is a process that doesn’t require talking about the event, feeling or issue. We do a series of 7 easy stretches, stressing the muscles of the lower body, and building up a little shaking in the legs.  We then lie on the floor, and encourage these natural vibrations to move through the body, without trying to control them.  Most people enjoy the sensation; for some, they report a physical or emotional release, without becoming overwhelmed in the process. Many express feelings of relaxation, loosening, relief and pleasure.The TRE® session from start to finish is about 45 -60 minutes.

The TRE® mechanism, or shaking ability, exists in all mammals and humans.  It is the body’s most organic and natural way of unravelling contracted or tight stress patterns, as well as reducing the charge of stress hormones and un-healthy chemical build up, bringing the body back to homeostasis.

It is recommended for anyone who:

  • Feels stressed, anxious or traumatised
  • Feels pain, inflammation or tightness in their body
  • Is exposed to or has witnessed other people’s trauma
  • Is living with health, financial, family, housing, addiction concerns
  • Is being, or has been exposed to war, violence, suppression or abuse
  • Is resident in a country of cultural, religious or generational trauma
  • Is working in a difficult or challenging situation that requires conflict resolution
  • has been involved in a vehicle or work related accident
  • has been involved in a natural disaster
  • has been diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Module I includes:

  • Anatomy, neurology and physiology of stress and trauma as it relates to TRE®
  • Understanding the tremor response
  • Introduction to the Poly-vagal theory
  • Defence reactions as they relate to TRE®
  • Containment and grounding strategies
  • Introduction to basic skills of working with individuals and groups

For those wishing to stay for the full 6 weeks between Module 1 and Module 2, Fiona has created a unique IMMERSION PROGRAMME designed for those wishing to deepen the PRACTICE, UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM OF TRE® – Tension & Trauma Release Exercises. You will get to experience or assist at a minimum of 2 TRE® group classes/workshops per week, as well as practice with friends and fellow travellers. This is a very valuable addition to the regular TRE® training, as you are encouraged to observe the mechanism in real life with real people looking for forms of relaxation. During this time, you will be guided, supported and supervised in going deeper with your own practice, and begin to understand the many textures of this process.  This on-site training offers a deep and transformational journey, whilst enjoying the beauty, serenity and freedom on an island free from noise, traffic and the daily stressors of our normal lives.  Personal reflective journaling is encouraged during this time.

Testimonials for Fiona Leibowitz TRE® Trainer

“TRE® or Trauma Releasing Exercises is a truly unique experience and one that feels connected to the basic needs of our human self.  As one of those busy people who takes on a lot of responsibility, TRE® afforded me the opportunity to relax into the letting go of the excess tension and emotion that builds up in the body. It is a difficult experience to express in words because it speaks to the scientific side of the spiritual self. TRE® offers a quiet moment to travel into the body and release without the need to articulate or intellectualise every feeling. Fiona is a gentle, honest, sensitive and insightful practitioner. She patiently explains the process to your curious side when required or simply facilities your journey to a deeper part of the self. I would highly recommend a TRE® experience under Fiona’s caring guidance.”  Mandy Schreiber – Managing Director

“I am the owner of a nursery school, teaching children between the ages of 18month-5years. I also tutor children with issues across the spectrum.  My work can be highly stressful and at times can cause me some emotional trauma, as can life in general.  I was introduced to TRE® by Fiona about a year ago and often tremor at the end of my day. I used to carry an enormous amount of stress in my back and had knots the size of golf balls, which are no longer there.  TRE® grounds me and has made me lighter both physically and emotionally and has also aided in deepening my intuition.   The benefits have been so profound.  Thank you to Fiona for giving me this incredible tool and gift to work with! ”  Simone Katz     Kidz on Board

“TRE® is the most consistent route I have found to escape negative or debilitating emotions and thoughts. It is my preferred form of meditation as unlike other techniques, I do not need to rely my mind to guide me (when it is actually often the problem), and in fact, it helps to pull me out of the mind.”  Rapelang Rabana, Entrepreneur & CEO

“It was in the middle of a sexistential crisis that I found Fiona.  I had been struggling with strange sexual urges, which were busy haunting me.  My mission was to find the source of these urges.  It was not easy.  I had spoken to all of my friends, done lots of introspection and had tried some professional therapy.  Nothing had worked.  During my first session with Fiona she was able to pinpoint the source of these problems.  They were due to childhood trauma. Fiona taught me TRE® – Trauma Releasing Exercises which helped me to complete the fight/flight process and which helped me feel safe in my own body again.  While there is a lot of healing work still to be done, I can safely say that Fiona helped me put my ghosts to rest and that I am not haunted by the strange urges any more.  I can take my place in society as a healthy sexual being, as opposed to feeling like a perverted outcast. Thanks again for doing what you do.”  Kobus, Student
