How can I help?
If you are reading this then you have already reached a point of limitation for some reason. Something isn't working or moving as it should, you're having difficulty in achieving something you want to do, but pain, mobility, limiting beliefs, confusion or doubt about what route is best for you. The process I work with is there to examine what else is possible. What can we change in how with think, move, behave and act that will make your life easier and freer to be what you want it to be?
What is LifeForce Patterning about?
There is no doubt that life is complex. As we move from atoms, to molecules, to cells, to organs, to organisms; life becomes more complex. We need greater skills to navigate the world if we are to move from the simple stages to the more evolved; In fact as the complexity of each stage increases the opportunities for problems increase. As Ken Wilber has often said: 'dogs get cancer, molecules do not'.
LifeForce Patterning is the evolution of an idea that has been fuelled by Ken Wilber's Integral Theory and the AQAL (All Quadrant, All Level) model, the LifeForce Dynamics Qigong of my brother Simon Calder and with my own discoveries in kinesiology and natural health systems over the last 25 years.
What People Say
Before I had a series of Bowen sessions I had lived with lower back pain and discomfort for over ten years. I had four Bowen sessions each about three weeks apart, after the first session I felt a notable difference in my posture and in the strength of my spine, strangely I felt taller, and as the weeks progressed Ben very skilfully addressed a variety of tension points that were connected to the stress and strain I was unintentionally placing on my lower back; in trying to prevent by back pain I was actually placing overexertion on other areas. By the fourth session I knew that my discomfort had been resolved and I am now able to move much more freely and flexibly without worrying about my back. Like everything in life there are no miracle cures but by working with the body and supporting the healing process through a gentle process of muscle movement, I found that Ben's professionalism and expertise of the Bowen technique worked for me.
Ben is a very knowledgeable, professional and kind. I've already recommended him to so many others for so many different health reasons as his talent is so wide spread. I always leave feeling I've benefited, clearer and positive.
I have found these sessions really helpful, adapting to my needs and helping me to make positive improvements in my life. Ben is extremely personable and I'd highly recommend his services.
I have been a client of Ben's since 2003/4 when I was diagnosed with a fairly serious thyroid disorder. I had been quite unwell with this for a long time and even after diagnosis and treatment, I was still not feeling at all well. From the time of my first visit, my life was turned around. I actually got my life back after living in a fog for such a long time. Then about 4/5 years ago, I was diagnosed with arthritis in the base of my spine. I decided to visit Ben again and I'm so glad that I did. Again, this was a turning point for me. The treatment and advice given by Ben have made a huge difference to my life. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Amazing and talented guy and really warm and professional. Saw my daughter for a Kinesiology appointment and determined several essential vitamins and minerals she was struggling with. With the help of epi-genetic products, she was soon back to full strength and then typically stopped taking the products and fell ill and tired again! Awesome knowledge! Thank you Ben.
Ben really knows his stuff. the Bowen treatment sessions led to a real improvement in the back problems I was suffering with
I have been seeing Ben in respect of Access Consciousness for about 4 months now. I have had just 3 sessions but the sessions and tools provided by Ben mean that I am now moving forward potently, after 3 years of paralysis.Massive changes are occurring for the positive. How does it get any better than that? Thank you Ben for enabling me to know how to get a new life up and running.
I've struggled with my hip for a long time, and following a few moans and groans to Ben, he suggested I come and pay him a visit! Well.. a few sessions later, and a few weeks of rest went by and I'm running better and faster than ever!! It's made such a difference.....in my performance and it's down to Ben. Ben is friendly, super positive, and always greets you with a great big smile but is still very professional. I highly recommend paying Ben a visit, and seeing how he can help!!
I have been a client of Bens for nearly two years now. He is always personable, friendly and professional and I would highly recommend Ben and Bowen practice to everyone.
Ben helped me prepare for a marathon. His advice, training and integral health techniques were a revelation. Not to mention his positive energy and focus. I would definitely recommend Ben for anyone who is looking to improve their health or work towards a specific goal.
Ben is an expert in his profession. I was made to feel comfortable and totally at ease throughout my treatment. I left feeling uplifted, energised and positive. Highly recommend and looking forward to more treatments :-)
Over the past 4 months Ben has guided me to make changes to my diet, breathing and awareness and I am now reaping the benefits. I have controlled my runners stomach, I feel much more awake, alive and I have made life changing decisions which I am not sure I would have made otherwise. Ben has a wealth of experience, knowledge and infectious positivity. Thank you Ben
As someone that has quietly practiced Qigong for many years it was great to join a class and get feedback that fully supported my journey. Great day and will be back for more
Wow! As I left my session with the amazingly knowledgeable Ben Calder I said: I feel lighter! I feel so light because I now know what my body does and does not like. I cannot stop talking to everyone about how amazing Ben is! Everyone should go and see him! What an amazing soul Ben is! Super grateful that our lives crossed
I've been seeing Ben every 4-5 weeks now for around two years. I can't explain Kinesiology but it, and Ben, have helped me travel to a calmer more settled and self aware place. Ben always listens, gives time and space, and has gone above and beyond for me on several occasions. I've recommended Ben many times and will continue to do so. I'm sure just being in the same room as him calms me down sometimes! Try Kinesiology... it'll blow you away!
I initially arranged an appointment with Ben for help with energy levels that I thought might be related to my strict vegan diet. Ben quickly identified some adjustments that made an immediate difference, enabling me to get more focused on my business. I can't say I always understand the techniques, but I do know that they have worked well for me.
I have received treatment from Ben for various reasons, migraines and post-cancer operation etc during the last 14 years. Each time I went to him to start treatment I had begun to feel desperate and wonder if I would ever recover! So I feel indebted to his professional and effective methods that have helped me in so many ways.
I can highly highly recommend Ben , he has helped me enormously over the last year. He is very easy to work with, kind and understanding and has an astounding wisdom and knowledge . He truly helps you to a higher state of health and awareness
Ive been visiting Ben for Kinesiology, to deal with stress and anxiety, for a couple of years now and I highly recommend him - in fact I do, I mention him and the positive impact Kinesiology has on me and my family all the time - and recommend him to friends and clients alike!
Ive been seeing Ben for years now, initially for lack of energy but now I feel he really helps me to be the best me I can be......(he) has so many tools to help tease out issues and solutions. Its always interesting, useful and educational. Mostly its fun too. Ive learned stuff about myself, changed the ways I think and behave and evolved as a person thanks to his skill. I also feel way better than I did all those years ago. I recommend him to everyone for everything. As my old Dad said wouldnt be surprised if he could cure wooden legs !! Thanks Ben, keep doing what you do and thank you
