Salima (Juliana Lara Resende) has been granted the titles of Advanced Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and Access Trainer by the IBA. She is licensed in Clinical Psychology in Brazil. After studying Jungian Psychosomatics in her home country, she got the basic certification as a BodyTalk practitioner in NewYork in 2008, and continued to travel abroad to take all the advanced modules within the BodyTalk curriculum with Senior Instructors. Salima also studied several complimentary modules and participated in IBA conferences, besides having studied the PaRama College Unit 1 .
"Meditation and service to others support the self-development aspect in my life, as well as the work as a BodyTalk practitioner. I continue to explore the possibilities found in practices such as subtle and meditative forms of therapies, including Watsu and Waterdance. They are capable of allowing the patient's healing process to occur at many levels because of a simple and deep connection with the practitioner - via the breath and awareness. Integrated with BodyTalk, it helps me to develop a state of presence and the ability to stay tuned and work with my own body. As well as deeper needs of the person I'm working with.
Currently based in the State of Santa Catarina in the South of Brazil, my commitment is to live a more quiet life and nurture the connection with my Beloved living master. I contribute to frequent spiritual retreats both in Barra de Ibiraquera, SC, and Norway. These beautiful retreats create an unique space for hundreds of people to experience relaxation, love and gratitude, so we may again find an abiding silence inside. My lucky "choice" of life was to live far from the stress of the big cities. I maintain a private clinic in Brasília and also offer sessions in Florianópolis and in Barra de Ibiraquera.
Besides the activities in the private practice, teaching the BodyTalk Access Program has been a source of inspiration for my work. There is a focus on Community Programs and Access Outreach classes. There's a priority to allow as many people as possible, specially from communities with restricted access to health care, to benefit from such simple; effective health maintenance or preventive programs.
With the help of many committed colleagues, I facilitated BodyTalk to be brought to Brasília - and several other cities. I ended up translating most of the new versions of the BodyTalk modules manuals. Also had the chance to work as a translator and organizer for Dr. John Veltheim, Dr. Janet Galipo, Dr. Nancy Werner, amongst other enlightning Instructors. These experiences created an opportunity for me to establish a relationship with Senior Instructors at the IBA, and the creator of the System. It facilitated both personal and educational expansion - which I am very grateful for.
I have participated in the process of making BodyTalk one of the complimentary modalities officially incorporated into all Military Hospitals in Brazil. By supporting projects, providing BodyTalk sessions and/or teaching BodyTalk Access classes in several Public Health Facilities, I've witnessed hundreds of individuals and dozens of families benefiting from these initiatives, only possible because of the good work of many students, practitioners and friends.
For two years I occupied a position as a Psychologist in the Brazilian National Congress. There I co-developed a Project for Integral HeathCare and co-organized a series of lectures with International keynote speakers on Preventive and Complimentary Health Modalities. After a few years of clinical practice, while hosting the founder of BodyTalk - Dr. Veltheim - and other brilliant Instructors including the Quantum Physicist Dr. Amit Goswami, pioneer doctors and scientists, I witnessed the blossoming of good interest for a new approach on the subject of Health and HeathCare, in one of the biggest governmental organizations in Brazil. I quit this position in 2013 - since then I still contribute at a distance to what became the ongoing Integral Health Project".
