The Rheichian model of psychosoma unity linked with the association between love, knowledge and work has had a natural evolution in the creation of Bioenergetic Analysis of Alexander Lowen. This symbolizes the integration that the heart makes, as an intermediate point between the mind and sexuality. It is from this point that we often speak, here in Brazil. It is in this point that our Social Clinic of Saberj has rooted itself as the meeting place of our love with our pleasurable work. It is from this place that we hope we can communicate here and now.

Once the study is made of Bioenergetic Analysis, the creation of a clinical treatment space within the study institute is the natural path. The purpose of the study, in the formative process, is to give form and our form of treatment is shown in our social clinic. With our Social Clinic we are able to have a clinic practice, complementing the study cycle.

What needs is the expressive organ serving?

If to understand institutions we take as model what goes on among individuals, we will have to  agree there is in them, as in every person, expressive needs and functions beside the practical ones.
If expressive needs, either individua1 or in institutions, are overlooked there is always the risk of proceeding in an inadequate manner, as if dealing with mechanical systems and not with organisms.
As individuals have energetic processes that need to be expressed so have institutions.

The Sociedade Brasileira de Análise Bioenergetica (SOBAB), founded in 1981, in São Paulo, has been graduating bioenergetic analysts throughout these years, following the IIBA's orientation and curriculum. Three groups have accomplished the training program and three other groups are taking the course. We are 60 members, among us there are 21 CBTs and one international trainer.
The development and growth of our Society has propitiated the creation of other instances besides the training itself, allowing its members to be more involved and integrated.
One of the movements started in 1994, when some trainees and CBTs got organized in order to assist the community, offering psycho-theraputic sessions, exercises classes and lectures at a low fee, making
Bioenergetic Analysis affordable to a share of the population that might not have access to it in a private clinic.
We may not forget about the huge economic and cultural opposites which dominate in our country, where the welfare work has been neglected and most of the population doesn't have private health insurance.
The "Life and Movement Clinic" (Clinica Vida e Movimento) was born with the great support of SOBAB's staff, aiming to integrate its members (trainees, CBTs, supervisors and trainers). The Clinic is based on the commitment with service production and continuous reflection of practices that can lead to change the reality we live in.

The objective of Movement Groups is to lead the participant to a sensibilizing and awareness process of the body in order to improve self - perception, augment the energetic balance and recover self-expression.
The background of Movement Groups is life as an energy flow. Those movements allow us to recover our vitality and well-being.
This work has been done by different Neo-Reichian Therapists since the late seventies.
Such kind of work is available to all the community at the Social Clinic of Sedes Sapientiae Institute in São Paulo, where it has been successfully done since 1990.
