Membership Renewal

Welcome to The RADIX Institute's website

Radix® is a powerful form of personal development work and body psychotherapy that was originally developed by Dr. Charles Kelley, based upon the work of Wilhelm Reich. It is an approach to personal growth and healing that is:

holistic ~ based on the principles of mind-body unity
body-centered ~ working directly with the body through movement and attention to breath, body sensation and awareness, energy flow and other non-verbal as well as verbal
experiential ~ 'here and now' engaging in your process
client centered ~ based on the unique needs of each client

The term "radix" -comes from the Latin word meaning "root" or "source," referring to that force which gives rise to all movement, feeling and growth in a person and in life. It is the life force...chi...prana...that unites body, mind, emotions and spirit.

The Radix Institute is a nonprofit organization that trains and certifies people to do Radix work. The Institute also provides continuing education and other professional services for Certified Radix Practitioners. As a 501(c)3, donations to the Radix institute are tax deductable.

Founder Charles Kelley received the USABP's Pioneer Award for 2012 for his contributions to the field of body psychotherapy. The announcement read: "Charles R. (Chuck) Kelley, PH.D., was a philosopher of science, an explorer and engineer of the life force, and an applied experimental psychologist. He was a student of Wilhelm Reich, and after Reich's death in 1957 he published The Creative Process, America's only scientific periodical devoted to furthering Reich's work at that time. By the late sixties he developed his own system of Radix® Education in Feeling and Purpose, and he and his wife Erica ran a retreat center in California until 1987, offering residential programs and training professionals from around the world."
