Self Knowledge Workshops

INTERNATIONAL SELF KNOWLEDGE 2 days WORKSHOP:

REVEALING THE UNCONSCIOUS- from a crossctultural approach:

Todays science estimates that 95 percent of our brains activity is unconscious, meaning that the majority of the decisions we make, the actions we take, our emotions and behaviours, depend on the 95 percent of brain activity that lies beyond conscious awareness.

According to Freud, thoughts and emotions outside of our awareness continue to exert an influence on our behaviors, even though we are unaware (unconscious) of these underlying influences. The unconscious can include repressed feelings, hidden memories, habits, thoughts, desires, and reactions


In these workshops we will explore different concepts within the unconsicuous : collective unconscious, unconscious beliefs, emotions, the shadow...


The shadow exists as part of the unconscious mind and is composed of repressed ideas, weaknesses, desires, instincts, and shortcomings. The shadow forms out of our attempts to adapt to cultural norms and expectations. In other words, the 'shadow' is the side of your personality that contains all the parts of yourself that you don't want to admit to having.  It is only through effort to become self-aware that we recognise our shadow. We will focus on getting to know our shadow and improving our relationship towards it.


We will also get to know our coping mechanisms. Seeing in others what we won’t admit also lies within is what Jung calls “projection.” Although our conscious minds are avoiding our own flaws, they still want to deal with them on a deeper level, so we magnify those flaws in others. First we reject, then we project

For signing up for this group, if you are not my patient you should take this two steps ( if you are or have been my patient, you just need to take step 2) : 


1)  Have a phone call with me . It will be a 10 minutes talk in which I look forward hearing about you, where you come from, your interests, your current life, and if you have ever done therapy before.

Asktoyour insurance about this option. 


 It is important to do the payment when you reserve a spot. Once the payment is done the spot will be reserved for you automatically. The payment can be done by mobile pay ( 73883) .
* The reason why payment is required in advance is for the members of the group to commit to this project ; this bring safety and confidence to the group. If you can not attend to one workshop is totally fine, I firmly believe you can benefit from this experience).
