Bowenwork® procedures are taught in module format with each module consisting of 16 hours classroom training. Generally, one module is held per month on a weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Courses that are a great distance may have two modules back-to-back (ie. Thursday to Sunday), held every second month. Check the Schedule page for precise dates and locations.
The content of each training module is standard in every country where BTAA-accredited instructors teach. Every module includes:
The training program covers the following modules (classes):
Prerequisite: Module 1
Prerequisite: Module 2
Prerequisite: Module 3
Prerequisite: Module 4
Prerequisite: Module 5
Prerequisite: Must wait a minimum of one month after successful completion of Module 6
final accreditation requirements
After successfully completing Module 7, practitioners are required to take a minimum of four days (32 contact hours) of BTAA-approved courses every two years in order to maintain accreditation. These courses are an opportunity to deepen your understanding and skill, and to network with other Bowenwork® practitioners. Continuing education courses include advanced Bowenwork®, international conferences, practitioner days, courses for specific areas of application and practice, or repeating any of the modules 1-6.
In this module you will explore and deconstruct the formal approach of Bowenwork as taught in Modules 1-6. You will practice working in unusual positions as well as new procedures. You will build upon your skills to enhance the art of application of Bowen. We will examine circumstances in which you might choose more minimal prerequisites than those described Modules 1-6 and we will help you discern many appropriate uses of partial rather than entire procedures individualizing the work to each client.
Extensive discussion of case management is included as well as review of procedures depending on the needs of the class. Manual is included.
SPECIALIZED PROCEDURES LEVEL 1
In this module you will learn a total of 12 new procedures that are helpful for more persistent and usual symptoms not fully responding to Module 1-6 procedures. These procedures tend to affect the entire body and may require longer wait times to integrate both during the session and between sessions. This level of instruction emphasizes the principle of “less is best”.
Manual is included.
SPECIALIZED PROCEDURES LEVEL 1 – CERTIFICATION
In this module you will perfect your technique in executing these precise procedures for more persistent symptoms taught in Module 9. It includes a practical and written exam as well as case study submission leading to certification at this level.
Once completed a certificate for SP1 training will be issued.
Energetic Assessment for the Bowenwork® Practitioner
Transform your Bowen practice without transforming Bowen
This course is a two-day training program to introduce the Bowenwork® practitioner to the concept of energetic assessment during a Bowen session. The objective of the program is to increase effectiveness, improve perception and therefore session outcomes for clients as well as improved energetic health for the practitioner and the space they work in.
The course includes instruction in how to experience energetic shifts when working on a client even if you have never felt you had that skill previously. A specialized energy activation designed to increase awareness and skills in assessing the energetic response to the Bowen move, is a part of this two-day seminar. The course will also include techniques for self-care including the power of intention and aligning with the parasympathetic state of your clients during their Bowen session.
