Autogenic training can be seen as self-hypnosis. For the autogenic training, the practitioner puts itself in the “switched” state by auto-suggestion. Under switching Schultz sees the change from the normal waking state into an altered hypnotic state of consciousness.
The basic level
The basic level consists of six exercises:
Experience the severity
Experience the heat
Each of these exercises is based on the suggestion of a quiet body condition. The effectiveness of the technique is based on the assumption that the quiet body condition can cause calming the mental state, that is inverse to the known experience that inner excitement triggers physical tension.
The suggestions made in simple, short sentences. The individual exercises take 3-15 minutes. You can initially be guided by a coach or by a sound recording. The goal is the internalization of the exercises and ultimately bringing about the relaxation without assistant or technical aid.
The intermediate level is used to improve the behavior (or avoid bad behavior) and the third level is used for therapeutic purposes.
Looking forward to seeing you at the workshop!
