The magic of change, without changing.

Wisdom in a new light?

Each of us has experienced that at one point or another, to feel undermined, to feel lost internally and not know how to deal with a situation. Especially that painful and gnawing feeling of being unwell disrupts the presence in the here and now of contact. Feeling threatened in your security of existence. Feeling fear and upset.  

In Gestalt we work with the dialogue, which gives attention to the different parts (voices) in ourselves. Develop clarity again in the language patterns that you have learned to use. The response patterns that you have been forced to use to survive, that block the free expression and do not correspond to the more deeply felt spirit within you.  

In the Gestalt training I learned to practice with my own reference point from which I perceive the world around me. Reference point refers to “I think”, “I feel”, “I see”, “I taste”, “I hear words”, “I hear the sound of the words”. An eye-opener for me was that I noticed that I was busy with how the other person would see, hear and feel me. At the moment of that awareness, that unique moment, I got the choice of being able to look at myself through my own eyes or through the eyes of the other.  

This point of reference gives the opportunity to develop recovery of support and confidence in yourself? To come back to the source of your self. I am. Give space to energy that has been poured in by looking at yourself with someone else’s eyes. And then being able to choose “I see, feel, hear, in order to be able to come out into my real self. To give my feeling the appreciation it is as a source of pure perception.  

You can again be attentive to your own intuition, your own feeling, and from the layer of playing roles in society back to the perception of playing a role of yourself or expressing in what is really perceived and what is real.  

Being able to do differently towards a new way of being different, emotional, fresh, pure, real.  

In the dialogue, healing occurs when you feel heard and understood. Become one with yourself.  

Listening and share feelings

What do you become aware, what do you feel, what do you hear, what does the experience do to you?  

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

In the training we will unravel the whole mess of emotions, feelings and thinking with pure awareness of the meaning in the life situation now, enter into a dialogue with the different parts of yourself. We practice with dance, movement, expressing yourself, meditation and reflecting on where you stand without judging. Exploring and recognizing blockages. With deepened insight and understanding for yourself in the old situation, it can be seen and released 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.

Your true colours

These trainings are only for people who want to discover, are willing to experience and want to reflect on what is happening in the here and now. Whether you are a therapist and want to retrain at an experience level, a student or need extra inspiration. If you 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.
