Reichian Character Structure
~ 7-day Training with Devaraj ~

Wednesday 17 January till Wednesday 24 January 2024


Do you want to go on a deeply personal, experiential journey with Bioenergetics and Reichian Therapy?

Do you wish to learn all that there is to know about Reichian Character Structure?

Would you like to integrate an understanding of the five Character Types, and how to resolve them, into your existing psychological knowledge?

Then this 7-day residential training is for you…

Each of the five character types originally identified by Wilhelm Reich tracks back to an aspect of our infancy and early childhood. We didn’t get a specific need met, adopted a “workaround” behaviour, and then simply continued on that track throughout life. So much of our human dysfunction, whether personal, social or global, becomes very clear and easy to address when seen through the lens of Character Structure.

This map will allow you to understand the roots of any negative thinking and behaviour, to identify the survival strategies you have adopted, and to become aware of the way that they have shaped your body and mind.

Becoming aware of where our behaviours come from, and working on them on a somatic level, is the most successful way to make positive change and move ahead in life with more spontaneity and presence.



One full day will be devoted to each Character Type – Aggressive, Rigid, Enduring, Oral and Leaving.

Each of these days will include:

  • a theory session, where I will explain the roots of the character type and how it affects our personality and the choices we make in life. I will place each character thoroughly in the context of our world in the 2020s.
  • a chance to ask questions about this character type, either of a theoretical nature or personal and regarding your own life.
  • an interactive session where you act out this character type yourself and interact with others doing the same. This process of embodying the character will start to integrate and release you from the negative aspects of its grip.
  • a session where we work more deeply with the techniques of Bioenergetics, Breathwork and Reichian therapy to fully release and integrate this character type within you.

In addition, each day will also include morning meditation, a group sharing and a gentle evening session.

‘There is so much in this work that is revolutionary and radical. Whether you seek to work on yourself, or are working with clients out in the world, I guarantee this course will give you many “ah-hah” moments, and allow you to create huge change.’



  • A deep knowledge of yourself and others from the perspective of Reichian Character Structure.
  • A real release from your personal past limitations and an understanding of how you can continue to progress in life after the training.
  • An understanding of the life challenges and actual exercises that unravel and integrate each of these 5 types.
  • A course completion certificate from The School of Body-Based Therapy.


This training is for anyone who wants to gain an experiential understanding of Reichian Character Structure and to go on a deep, 7-day journey within themselves. In order to join, you don’t need to have any level of prior experience with Bioenergetics, Breathwork or Reichian techniques. But if you are concerned that you are “too much of a beginner” then feel free to contact Devaraj here and you can discuss. If you are already working within psychology or complementary therapy, you will find this course excellent to expand your knowledge and to continue your own professional development.

Note: if you have ever been diagnosed with a significant mental health condition then it’s possible that this course might not be suitable for you.
