We demystify emotion. Safely.

Emotions are neither good nor bad. They just are.

In fact, each core emotion has a specific, biological function to support our lives.

However, we do not receive an emotion education. This can leave us feeling disconnected from our bodies, confused about what we’re feeling, afraid of emotion and wrapped up in patterns of behaviour/emotional cycles.

We’re here to help you demystify emotion, manage them directly in your body, and to reframe your perceptions. Our work is highly practical and carefully structured to put you deeply in touch with your nervous system, your intuition and your authentic, biological self. The exercises we teach lead to feeling more relaxed, energised, self-assured and grounded.

Take part in our exclusive workshop series, held in the heart of San Francisco, and discover how to free yourself from limiting beliefs about who you can be, and how you can live.

Work with your body.

The rise in popularity for self-development initiatives has led to many of us exploring self-help books, reading papers, trying different cognitive resources, implementing meditation and mindfulness into our daily routines – but two major problems persist:

A disconnection from our bodies.

A lack of understanding of emotions and how to manage them.

This is where we come in. Our techniques have been in development for the past 30 years and are supported by psychologists, psychiatrists and other health professionals worldwide.

Our step-by-step, body-focused methodology offers a structured pathway for you to:

  • Understand the innate, biological purpose of each emotion
  • Train your emotion system safely with structured exercises
  • Release personal story and societal/cultural conditioning around specific emotions
  • Identify core emotions directly in your nervous system
  • Regulate and manage your emotions
  • Harness your emotion system for closer relationships, professional situations and a richer life

Kalliso is coming to San Francisco for an exclusive 3-Part Workshop Series.

WORKSHOP 1

SELF-REGULATION & EMOTIONAL AWARENESS

Exploring Aggression & Happiness while introducing our fundamental exercises, which include practical tools for self-regulation, releasing tension within your breathing system, and how to connect to your intuition and emotional awareness.

Aggression gives us strength to push through hardship, to drive us into the next step we want to make in our lives, and to stand up for what is important to us. Differentiating Aggression from anger or violence is necessary to uncover its true function and potential to support our lives.

Happiness teaches us to relax, let go, and to connect. Truly and deeply relaxing is enormously difficult in a society where we’re always on the go. It’s essential to be able to access happiness easily, so you can make the most of your time off, and sleep deeper.

When: Monday 22nd or Tuesday 23rd April, 2024
Where: TBD, San Francisco City
Time: 6:30pm-9:30pm

WORKSHOP 2

STRENGTH & CONNECTION

Intro Workshop 2 (3hrs)
Exploring Grief & Desire and how they relate to our innate sense of strength and self, which we are often disempowered from. Connect to your drive and curiosities, while simultaneously opening up to connect more with others.

Grief fortifies our will, to fight for what is important to us. Different from suffering or loss, grief is a proactive emotion, and gives us strength to hold onto our purpose, the people we wish to hold close, and what we want from our lives.

Desire reveals what we like, where our curiosities lie, and how we like to spend our time when our other needs are fulfilled. Everyone has different tastes and preferences in all aspects of life. Discovering one’s individual desire is essential to living authentically.

DETAILS
When:
Wednesday 24th April, 2024
Where: TBD, San Francisco City
Time: 6:30pm-9:30pm
Cost: $250 USD

*This workshop must be booked alongside Workshop 1, as the workshop content builds throughout the series.

WORKSHOP 3

ANXIETY & BOUNDARIES

Intro Workshop 3 (3hrs)
Exploring Fear & Revulsion and how they are essential for managing anxiety, regulating our energy levels, and setting boundaries in both personal and professional settings. Learn how these emotions protect yourself and others.

Fear injects us with a burst of adrenaline, and tells us what we wish to flee from. Fear can even be energising when we’re screaming on rollercoasters, but less so when it becomes stuck in our bodies. Learning to release and manage fear is an empowering process for a healthy emotion system.

Revulsion demonstrates what we wish to distance ourselves from. The universally most suppressed emotion, revulsion is how we set boundaries, say no, and walk away from what no longer serves us. Revulsion is often underrated, and extremely necessary to live a balanced life.

When: Thursday 25th April, 2024
Where: TBD, San Francisco City
Time: 6:30pm-9:30pm

*This workshop must be booked alongside both Workshop 1 & 2, as the workshop content builds throughout the series.

About Kalliso Techniques

Kalliso Techniques were developed from its parent program PEM™, the Perdekamp Emotional Method, which is an acting methodology that is currently leading a breakthrough in the Arts, teaching performers how to healthily access emotions.

PEM was originally developed in Germany 30 years ago and is taught at prestigious acting studios and universities internationally. Since it’s development, a number of positive wellbeing effects were observed and thus the techniques were shared beyond the arts to the general public, for autistic people, for PTSD, burnout, anxiety, depression, and for general emotional awareness and personal development. Kalliso exercises have been reviewed by psychologists and psychiatrists who have given their overwhelming support.

There are currently two PEMCentres across the globe, one in Hamburg, Germany and another in Australia with Kalliso. Classes are available online, and an exclusive number of in-person workshops are being launched in 2024.

This is emotion management for everyone.

Professor Tony Attwood
Clinical Psychologist

Before working with Kalliso, emotions were like a foreign language for my client…Kalliso helped us to have a common language – it was no longer purely intellectual knowledge of emotions, suddenly we had an experienced understanding.

Allys Johnson
Clinical Psychologist, Australia

Kalliso is the best technique for emotion management that I have come across.

Dr. Patrick Frottier
Psychiatrist, Medical University of Vienna
