"If we consider the masculine energy as flowing from the heart downward into the genitals, this heart energy becomes a part of exploring or penetrating male energy – then the genitals are not isolated in what is often temporary satisfaction. If we consider feminine energy as flowing from the genitals upward into the heart, this genital energy becomes part of a warm receptivity – the heart is no longer lonely and searching. Here we are looking at an internal kind of integration which can be supported by special positive re-parenting." (quote Jack Painter, 2007).
Pelvic Heart Integration® engages us directly (not just intellectually) in harmoniously uniting masculine and feminine energy currents. It allows us to discover peace, wholeness, core light, orgasmic bliss and love within us rather than endlessly seeking satisfaction outside ourselves. Through the PHI process we transcend the dualities of male and female, yin and yang, love and sex, upper and lower chakras, individual and
tribe using a powerful combination of Bodymind techniques. These techniques or systems include embodied psychodrama, Reichian breath- and bodywork, Eriksonian interventions, energy work, pelvic release, body reading and work with the inner diaphragms of body balance.

Pelvic-Heart Integration® is a holistic method to support and free the power of sexual energy within us and address the way in which our culture frequently distorts the natural flow of orgasmic energy. Old wounding patterns experienced through generations are transformed in new liveliness. This opens the possibility to find deep contact and connection with your own creative sexual energy within yourself and with others. As a result, it provides a valuable framework for sexual healing – both in the sense of unraveling sexual dysfunction and in the sense of restoring trust and harmony between men and women, women and women, men and men.

Pelvic-Heart Integration® is an original synthesis of different bodymind tools and systems. In order to integrate the relevant aspects of ourselves, work is done simultaneously on many different levels and in a thorough way. Through the step-by-step PHI process we progressively transcend the pairs of opposites of male and female, yin and yang, love and sex, upper and lower chakras, individual and tribe. We use a powerful combination of Bodymind drama (embodied psychodrama), Reichian breath- and bodywork, Eriksonian strategies, energy work, pelvic release, body reading, work with the inner diaphragms of body balance & ritual.
