What is Organic Intelligence®?
Organic Intelligence® (OI) is both a therapeutic protocol and a way of life. It's based on the sciences of biology, psychology, anthropology and complex systems while integrating mindfulness and compassion within its framework.
OI explains how healing takes place through the recalibration of the nervous system. Under right conditions, our system - body and mind - knows how to heal itself, is able to adapt to new situations and grows to meet new challenges. When we understand what the natural conditions for healing are, we can evoke supportive states and our complex biological system will provide what is needed for system re-organisation, personal growth and healing. This will bring more harmony, ease, authenticity, meaning and simple pleasure into our lives. We can live more spontaneously and compassionately in the present moment.
What might an OI session look like?
The sessions take place within the framework of a free association conversation. This process enables our system's natural resources - thoughts, feelings, sensations, images and unconscious movements - arise. The coach will highlight the client's organic, self-organising impulses while supporting their orientation to the here and now. This process allows the client's nervous system to take steps towards greater organisation.
The client is joined by the coach in an attuned, compassionate and non-pathologising way. Each person is unique and, therefore, each person is met where they are and respected for who they are.
