From the top of the “Monte”, we become consciousness of the vast natural space around us, the strength of the elements in the region and the overwhelming beauty of one of the most, or perhaps last, secret places in the world. The Ocean, the trees and hills, the animals and humans, one vision that puts us in the very center of the continuous beautiful and mighty universal cycles. Once a rural tourism center, Monte Velho has grown into its true essence and purpose as an Eco Retreat Center. A space to appreciate and bring to life the natural beauty of the environment and a chance to have a real and empowering experience, our connection to our roots and a way to discover our true nature.

 WORKING with PEOPLE  with RAFIA & TURIYA

Part 4- Embodiment of Power

09 to 13 Set 2015

 

Working with People - A Psychology of Awakening, is a unique approach that creates a bridge between the individual as seen through the understandings of Western Humanistic Psychology and approaches to spiritual awakening with origins in various middle eastern and eastern traditions.

In the training we will lay a foundation of understanding and self-experiencing for those wanting to work with people in a truly effective way. Our perspective is that in order to actually be able to help others we must also work to heal ourselves, understand our own personal psychodynamics and have a committed spiritual practice that deepens the connection to our own Being.
