The magic of real contact…. in a relationship

Back to the source…. be yourself

Living learning in contact, in relationship. Focus on how you want different? You can realize yourself. Step-by-step. Thinking in terms of limitations. Develop a clear view of the space that is present in the here and now.

In everyday reality you will find, wherever I go, I take myself with me. The whole load of limiting experiences, ingrained responses to these experiences, the indoctrinated limitations to stay in line with this society. The way I deal with frustrations and feelings. The learned thinking patterns or limiting thinking frames as I like to call them after the example of the comics by Olivier B. Bommel and Tom Poes. You can reclaim your freedom if you, with help and support, let your light shine on the experiences that have limited you

in all the possibilities that lie dormant within you.

To be in relationship:

That recurring “conflict in relationship, feeling misunderstood, feeling pain, feeling alone, defending yourself”, have a meaning and that meaning is released when there is attention for each other at heart level. In Gestalt we call this the foreground and background configuration. If the dialogue with your deeper self is disrupted, it is not possible to give clarity and expression to yourself in your living situation. To unveil the negative emotion, loving awareness is needed, so that the balance of positive and negative can be restored and you can choose where you stand.

Relationship training, individual training or group training via video calling.

Feeling that magical moment of contact. When someone in the group has clarity in themselves and in the situation. The tears of emotion flow and everyone in the group can feel the meaning and recognize what is present. I am present and grateful in being aware of being in touch with the wisdom of the self.

In the training we will unveil the whole jumble of emotions, feelings and thinking with pure attention. We practice with dance, movement, expressing yourself, meditation and reflecting on where you are. Exploring and recognizing blockages. With deepened insight and understanding for yourself in the old situation, you can see and let go in the here and now. Become your own master (es) and feel your own rhythm and cadence in contact or relationship. Tune in and move. Perceiving inwardly. Express appearance.

Feeling understanding

 These training courses are for anyone who wants to discover, is willing to experience and wants to reflect on what presents itself here and now. Whether you are a therapist and want to retrain at an experience level, a student or need extra inspiration. If you feel the need to reflect in a nourishing environment on “know yourself” or attention for “the common thread” in your life, then these training courses contribute to that.
