The 24th International Matrix Workshop took place in picturesque Ilica/Cesme on the Again Sea in Turkey this year.
The combination of daily Matrix Rhythm therapy, Thalasso therapy (sea water therapy), warm sea water, morning Yoga on the beach coupled with an exquisite Aegean cuisine – offered by a first class Bio Hotel – once again was in complete harmony with Dr Randoll’s systemic regeneration concept.
Forty participants from India, Turkey, Austria, Switzerland and Germany were present onsite. The advanced training lectures dealt with the Matrix concept from a Turkish traditional healing perspective and with the Matrix Rhythm Therapy itself.
Dr Randoll organized the five training days reflecting different topics. Case studies were presented for each topic, their aetiology-pathogenesis discussed and the practical therapeutic access jointly developed. Participants shared their experience, acquired in part during their 10 years of practice. The case study presentations from India were particularly striking.
It was exciting to see how results from Matrix Rhythm Therapy – which go deep into surgical, orthopedic and neurologic themes – have been achieved given proper application and understanding of the physiological Matrix concept. The results also impressed experts in the fields of radio-oncology, jaw surgery, parodontology and orthopedics present at the workshop.
Practical workshops took place on the specific topographical aspects of the body in the afternoons. Participants could mutually practice the systemic therapeutic approach of the Matrix Rhythm Therapy. Indications were discussed, in particular prevailing process disturbances, which are causal for disease development. By mutually practicing feel and sense the theory conveyed in the morning was put into practice.
In the evenings individual groups ventured to Cesme and Alacati for strolling and dining. Fish-restaurants at the harbor as well as small family operated shops showed their best every evening to curious passers-by.
A Gala-dinner announced on the last day crowned the workshop. The venue was a special place in Urla: the Kostem Zeyntinyagi Muzesi, the worldwide oldest and largest olive oil museum. A festive table was set for us after there, following a tour that covered 3000 years of olive oil production. Turkish specialities cooked from biologically grown produce from a farm nearby, a rarity today, were served for dinner.
The workshop ended on Friday with an extensive tour of Izmir’s historic sites such as the Saaf Kulesi the landmark clock tower, the busy Kemeralti Basar and the impressive Agora ruins of Smyrna. A tour of the Basar with all its delicacies and traditions was not allowed to be missing.
This year too, the international collaboration bringing people together has been a great success. Addresses were exchanged and new friendships saw the light of day. Recovered, the minds filled with new ideas, inspired by the traditions of Turkey, we have travelled full of vim and vigor home again.
We are looking very much forward to the 25th International Matrix Workshop which is scheduled to take place November/December 2023 in Goa, India.
