🍀 Somatic sense of moving in reversible ways. To feel and emote in reversible ways


Remaining 3 days:

We will build on the experiences from the first two days, making explicit the theory and principles that Ritual Play have been developed in accordance with. The theory that supports the Ritual Play framework will be woven together with experiential practice.

☀️Ritual Play’s Roots in: Participatory Arts, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Movement Practices, Tantra & Kink, Deep Ecology and systems thinking & Marina’s book Hon som fick Veta (She Knows)

☀️Foundational Relational Nervous system Education

a) How to support a sense of safety in clients, groups and in yourself – through awareness of location & explorative orienting habits 

b) How to support a sense of safety in clients, groups and in yourself – through deliberate social engagement. Understanding based on Polyvagal theory

☀️Understanding Ritual Play’s primary mover, that is tapped into by focusing one’s attention on an ever present undercurrent of felt sense experience. A concrete way to be rooted in curiosity and  “leaning in” is the inquiry of  “Where is my felt sense attention drawn to next, next and next … “ 

☀️Understanding and cultivating the skill of Dual Awareness: your ability to simultaneously witness your situation with a client as well as being deep in own experiencing awareness. Primarily needed as the practitioner in client sessions

☀️Understanding and cultivating a Participatory Mindset for Ritual Play use with 1:1 clients. This approach is developed out of Marina’s Master Thesis on “Sexuality as Art”. Explored through roleplaying client and practitioner offering Ritual Play sessions

☀️Understanding how to move from a ’treatment’ based session approach, with a focus on fixing clients, to a co-creative approach, with a focus on partnering with clients to support them to be in choice. This approach supports autonomy, choice and transformation.

👉This is a the foundational training for those wanting to pursue Ritual Play professionally. As such we have a frame and clear curriculum to present. However, there is also room for a certain amount of responsiveness to the actual dynamic of the group. This can be done by changing the order of how we bring in the various elements and possibly bringing in any of the following:

*Ritual Play influenced by various somatic practices, possibly Feldenkrais lessons, TRE, breath work, Wheel of Consent, BMC

*Evolutionary movement & Movement vocabulary practice.

*Power Hierarchy Awareness

*Exploring Ritual Play’s strong connection to Systemic Constellation experientially

 🌟Feedback from former students, now Ritual Play colleagues 🌟

🌟“This course offered me new ways of thinking, opening windows where I didn’t know there were any. Marina has a big theoretical background she can share from which is profound. Next to that she is very flexible to the needs of the group, offers great exercises that you immediately can implement in your life and sessions. Marina has a really relaxing way of being with the group, which was an eye opener for the very structured part of myself. I enjoyed the depth through simplicity that was offered. Thank you!” 🌟   Mariëlle Spronck www.mariellespronck.com


🌟“ This embodied knowledge is an amazingly powerful tool. I highly recommend Marina’s Ritual Play Professional Training for anyone who wants to be a leader – for individuals, groups or for themselves.


Firstly, the training gave me an in-depth understanding of the connection between Ritual Play and Participatory Culture. Participatory Culture is about persons taking part in culture not having only passive roles as a choice. Instead one can choose to interact and co-create. Our entire civilization is stepping into an interactive paradigm, where we go from being passive consumers of culture and media to being involved in creating the culture we live in. Ritual Play contributes in a fantastic way to deepen and expand that paradigm.

Secondly, I have previously learned on a theoretical plane about the autonomic nervous system – about the sympathetic and parasympathetic, and the interchange between them. Now, thanks to Ritual Play Training, this theoretical knowledge could be transformed into practical skills. Now I notice when a person is within the Window of Tolerance and when they are not. I know exactly what I can do to help my clients, workshop participants and myself back in, If one were to be triggered outside of the Window of Tolerance. This has become a huge empowerment, both professionally and in my personal relationships! 🌟  Tobias Berlin, workshop facilitator in personal development.



▶︎ Important note: Educating Ritual Play to others is still in it’s start-up phase so parts of the Curriculum and how it is delivered might change and evolve. Mentioned parts of the curriculum might be removed and new parts added as I learn, tweak and receive feedback.
