“The Process”

Klik hier om de Nederlandse tekst te lezen.

The Process is a unique method of physical, emotional and cognitive practice that takes you beyond mere “physical” workouts or “mindfulness” training. 

What if I told you there was a way to change your future? 

Do you struggle with habitual loops of internal dialogue, chronic tensions in your body? Do the same problems seem to block your path over and over again? What if I told you that there are methods that could help you resolve these problems.

I wish someone told me when I was younger, and I wish I had invented these methods myself, but I did not have to. These methods have actually been around for a long time, but only a small number of people have had access to this knowledge, and above all else, the implementation of this knowledge. At the risk of sounding immodest, I have developed a way to make these methods and techniques more available. This is what I call The Process.

Of course you know physical training; you see people train their body in gyms, in yoga centres, in dance, competitive sports, and so forth. You have probably heard about mind practices like mindfulness meditation. However the aim of such practices can be taken beyond the purpose of just training the body or becoming more mindful. Actually very often such exercises where taken out of a specific context and then in a generalised way presented to us by great salesmen as the next thing to do. 

The process offers a series of methods adapted to you, in a way that it will help you to better discover who you are, unravel your physical, emotional and intellectual make-up, and your conditioned patterns, awaken your intuition and support you taking responsibility of your own future and the challenges you meet daily. 

The process presents you with tools and my guidance to take on this journey.

Who am I to be telling you about these things? My name is Olivier Goetgeluck, and I have spent the last 10 years studying and researching the workings of the human body, emotions and thinking. From a young age I became obsessed with training and moving the body through strength training, sports, gymnastics, hand-balancing, dancing, martial arts, and body-oriented therapeutic work. 

In the next phase of my training, I discovered different Eastern and Western traditions that taught me more about how our behaviour is shaped by early imprinting and conditioning and how we can create change in our habitual patterns through practice, or inner “work”. Along the way I met a handful of important teachers who guide me to understand the gist of all these methods that have been around for millennia - and support me in developing my particular craft. 

The Process I am offering is the culmination of these continuing research endeavours in a practical and individualised manner. It has limitless real-world applications and I have used it with individuals from all backgrounds, professions and ages. 

THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS YOU WILL EXPLORE 

The physical training and practices are based on Fighting Monkey Research & Practice where I am one of the few instructors under the guidance of Jozef Frucek and Linda Kapetanea. FM practice will help you to improve your posture, interconnect your whole body to a remarkable degree, and awaken a sense of aliveness and playfulness in your body and bodily expression through myriad movement situations. 

The body-oriented work through VGT or self-regulation oriented vegetative training that I am practicing under supervision of Inge-Jarl Clausen. It is a Reichian bodywork modality that will help you to deepen your experience of the sensations in your body and guide you to trust your intuition more and more as a compass and healing tool. 

Observational practices and exercises that you can practice throughout your day, at specific times or situations to get a better grasp of your conditioned beliefs, attention-focuses and physical responses to life’s problems, challenges and opportunities. 

Recommended resources, texts and books in relation to the practice subjects and your particular questions and interests.

TESTIMONIALS

“I am learning from Olivier to access the courage to allow myself to be more authentic, to find a healthy and dynamic balance of openness and strength. In his utterly honest and quiet way Olivier has made observations about me which have almost startled me in their clarity and insight and which have been gateways to learning and growth. As we’ve continued to have sessions together our work has been branching out to include more ways of exploring the body, mind, emotions and attention.” - Mark Steinberg, professional musician

“I like that it is not Olivier who tells my what to do. Yes he instruct, but the movements come from within and with it freedom. It is hard to explain in words. It is something that one must experience in one's own body. Old habits, injuries, inactivity, phycological processes and cultural tendencies all influence the way we move and what we express with the body. Through Vegetative Training I found some deep hidden tension no other therapist would have found.” - Thomas P. physiotherapist

“I can recommend Olivier - He's a great guide/instructor, and you will really feel how passionate he is about helping people, and that's admirable.“ - Mads Valentin, elite runner 

“The goal of the collaboration with Olivier is not to become better, stronger or more flexible. Rather you are seeking more awareness within you. This ability to be aware of many different things going on in your body, mentally as physically, allows you to understand yourself step by step a little bit more. In the end, you are on a journey of self-discovery. ” - Simon Schmid, manager

“Olivier has introduced many new concepts to me, far beyond what the mainstream fitness community provides. I used to follow along with the trend and just did what looks “cool”. I could never pictured myself practicing stillness let alone sticking to it, I never felt motivated to do mobility, I never wanted to take a day off and “relax”. I have to admit the shift was slow, and I took my time. Throughout the past couple of months, I’ve certainly given a lot of thought into training for longevity. I can’t quite put my finger on it, I often felt more intellectually challenged, I associate the gains I’ve made are more mental than physical. I can’t thank you enough Olivier, I am confident and certain that I will continue to implement your teachings as I move forward in my life.” - Simmy Tan, proud mom and graphic artist 

“I recommend anyone who wants to elevate their game no matter the sport or just someone who wants to enhance their life experience to work with Olivier Goetgeluck. He is an extremely kind, nonjudgmental and charismatic teacher. If you are struggling with trying to keep up to the pace that this world moves, which seems to be moving at 100% every second of the day Olivier will teach you multiple techniques on how to slow down just a little bit.” - Codi Miller, professional basketball player

“Olivier, from the moment we met I have felt deep interest in who I am, my life experiences and the journey that brought me to my essence and personal mission: “making people aware of their own responsibility in life.” It was as if you already the knew the methods I use as an entrepreneurial coach for years, and actually you systematically implement them (un)consciously. Movement is a means, not a goal.” - Jan Adins, entrepreneurial coach


"I feel like I've been bathing in my own breath. But I'm not doing it - I'm being bathed. Of all the therapies/healing modalities I've worked with, this process has had the most immediate and effective results in the quality of my daily life. I'm grateful to have found it and you." - Ananda, yoga teacher
