Overview

The Bodhypnosis technique induces an effortless deep meditative state in just a few seconds allowing for instant inner peace, provides tools to find balance and deal with stress and pain, improves sleep and overall health. It is an amazing technique for everyone and a powerful skill for massage or physical therapists and health and wellness professionals to add to their offering.

You will gain a very simple and powerful tool that is calming, sleep inducing, antalgic, anesthetizing and regenerative. It liberates from stress, allowing to reconnect to oneself and to find great inner peace. It frees the self-healing power because neither thoughts nor emotions are interfering with the infinite intelligence at work in the body, in the same way as the placebo effect frees the person from limiting or negative beliefs.

During the retreat, you will learn a full body protocol of around 50 maneuvers, you will be taught the history and the theoretical aspect of the method as to how it works, what it does and what purpose it could serve. You will experience in your own body the extreme subtlety this technique requires so that you can provide it for others. You will also learn self-applied maneuvers to center yourself, empty the mind, free the diaphragmatic breathing, helping to fight stress, sleep better and be in better health. The work will be done in duos and each participant will spend equal time giving and receiving.

Throughout the workshop, you will realise to what extent sensation is salvation because the simple Bodhypnosis maneuvers teach us that the best way to be in the moment is to delight in what our senses are experiencing in their connection to the environment. ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit’ means exactly that. ‘We are not seeking the meaning of life so much as the experience of being alive’, said the great American mythologist Joseph Campbell. The tyranny of the mind occurs especially when the sensoriality is locked because one is not able to savor life through the senses anymore. Bodhypnosis helps to cleanse the doors of perception.By providing an easy access to one’s soul, Bodhypnosis helps to lessen the predominance of the ego-mind to the benefit of the Infinite Intelligence at work within us.

For massage therapists, acupuncturists, yoga teachers, personal coaches, midwives, nurses, sport and life coaches, dancers, meditators and anyone passionate about the relationship between the body-mind and body-soul connection.

Jean Labbé  |  Retreat leader

Originally from Quebec, Canada, Jean Labbé has been living in France since 1999. His early endeavors were athletic and artistic but in 1984, he had a life changing experience when he received his first holistic massage from his best friend. He then realized that one could have a spiritual experience through the body and, fascinated by that, started exploring the relationship between the body and the mind, and made it his life.

Interview: Bodhypnosis with Jean Labbé

Q: What first drew you to body hypnosis?
A: When I was performing very deep tissue massage with extremely slow movements, I noticed that my clients were going into such a deep sleep that I thought there was something abnormal going on! First, they would go into deeper relaxation with light snoring, which soon became louder when I started working on the shiatsu points related to their actual condition.

Interview: Three Questions for Jean Labbé

1. Why Bodhypnosis?
Bodhypnosis came as a reward after 25 years of observing and exploring the relationship between the soul and the body. I came to realize that using hyper slowness and contacting bones were extremely efficient ways to neutralize the mind and alter consciousness. This is a delightful way to achieve a life fully connected to the present moment and its magic.

It’s a mind opening experience that will give you an insight towards yourself & life or will renew your own insight about them. In addition that each part of this retreat is supporting the others, the yoga will calm your mind & soul, and the Bodhypnosis will allow you to free them & release them & enjoy the possible lightness of the Self.

Abeer, Saudi Arabia


A beautiful week full of love, sharing, laughter, learning and special memories that will remain with me forever. Learning this profound technique is a life changer for me and I can’t wait to share it back home in NZ. I’m the first Bodhynopsis practitioner in NZ, wohoooo!!

RETREAT CENTER

Oneworld’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields. And it is probably the only retreat centre in the world with a Palace in its backyard!

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


MEALS

Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, healthiest and most tasteful meals, infused with love. Your special wishes and dietary requirements are taken care of whenever possible. Most of your meals are included and most of them are eaten together with the group in the beautiful jungle dining room but sometimes are also served in the privacy of your own balcony or at an outside location. Your personalized itinerary will inform you in detail.


YOGA AND MEDITATION

The meditation and yoga sessions are a soft approach to what may become part of one’s daily life. Through meditation and yoga, people from around the world and all levels of society have reached incredible results in balancing the body, mind and spirit, therefore achieving more focus and being in control over life’s daily events.

The yoga we offer is Hatha and it combines the precision of Iyengar with the dynamism of Ashtanga. Participants are introduced to Pranayama, Asanas, relaxation techniques and rituals. During the contemplative meditation sessions you watch your thoughts, without any intention to either control or repress them. Just simply watch and be aware of each movement of the thought and see them move without you being moved by them.


SPA

Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapists’ hands. Inclusive are mandi Lulur treatment and choice of Ayurvedic Facial or Relaxing Massage or Deep Tissue Massage or hair treatment. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.
