  • WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAID ABOUT IT

     

    "I have the impression that it is the first time in my life

    that I go to a school where I learn what I really need for life.

    How do I live in relationship, family, raise my children, take care of the planet?

    We don't learn these things in school or anywhere else."

     

    "Here it becomes evident that alone you cannot find the blind spots in your own personality.
    Regardless of how courageously you investigate your inner world,

    regardless of how deeply you look into your own shadows,

    you will systematically avoid seeing key elements."

    I'm ready

    "I never thought it would be so easy to reconnect to feelings.

    I didn't know before that we actually have only four basic feelings

    My passion and my work are to create and facilitate safe and powerful spaces where you can rediscover yourself, letting go of the usual masks and habits and experience yourself in a different way, more real, more vulnerable. Spaces where the mind can rest and you can allow yourself to feel and discover the beauty of your emotional wisdom. Spaces where your body can express, move, open itself and you can reconnect with the simplicity of life. Spaces where you can rediscover who you are, in all your contradictions and unicity.

    People responsible for logistics to bring this training

    Joana Cruz

    Spaceholder

    I have attended 14 trainings in the last 4 years. I've organized 7 trainings in Portugal. This work helped me to take responsibility for what I want to do with my life.

     

    I dedicate myself to what is yet to discover about the self. Here I experience how different and knowledgeable subjects combine, giving insightful material to continue life’s owned clarity, strengthening intuition and wisdom into the future.

     

    This process worked for me and I have the calling be present for others in their processes too.

     

    I am joyfully creating spaces where people feel safe and inspired to step towards any kind of transformation, it can be physical, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, familial, you name it.

    I want to live in a world where I, my family, my community, are responsible and in control of what's happening in our life. I went through this training and it was transformational to me, so I decided to help organize the next events. I want to give you the chance to participate and it will be my pleasure to contribute to your shift.
