Membership of The Historia Illius Itineris


The Historia Illius Itineris functions as the organisation of practice groups (“lodges”) for graduates of the Foundation levels of Metaphors of Movement.

Lodges typically meet ten times per year and members (“initiates”) can join as many lodges as they wish.  Lodge meetings typically are two hours, with one hour discussion and/or MoM practice and development and a one hour study paper.

The study papers come from “The Body of Knowledge” which represents the core material of advanced techniques and processes that are not taught on the conventional Metaphors of Movement trainings. Additional social and educational events will be organised locally as per interest.

The Historia Illius Itineris is not a training course, therapy group or support group but does however offer guidance for students to navigate the more complex material from Metaphors of Movement.

The material of “The Body of Knowledge” is organised by degrees and each degree typically represents a one year part time study. There is no requirement to progress through the degrees within any minimal time frame and initiates are free to remain at whichever degree they wish for as long as they wish.  Progression however requires submission of key pieces of work to be added to “The Body of Knowledge.”

Entrance to each degree is attained by participation in a psychodramatic event (“initiation”) that embodies key and relevant structures from Metaphors of Movement. Initiates are required to swear oaths and are required to sign a legally binding non-disclosure agreement. Membership is confidential and as such The Historia Illius Itineris functions as a secret society.

The Historia Illius Itineris is structured as an international initiatory organisation. It is elitist, secular, non-political and has no formal affiliation with any other organisation.

    I am very interested in learning more and joining The Movement. I would like to try and attend the level 1 and 2 workshops in Tokyo in June.

    I would like to know the costs of the workshops as well.

    I have heard there may be a workshop in India this year if you could give me that information that would be great.

    I am American and teaching English right now in Bali Indonesia. I will be moving in a few weeks to Chiang Mai,Thailand.

    Thank you,

    My name is Julia Patel

      Hi Julia, for costs in Tokyo, please contact NLP Japan via here: I’m merely the speaker, so don’t get involved in the bookings. We won’t be running a MoM training in India for the foreeable future, but maybe next year.
