The Practice

There are three aspects practice: body, mind, and emotions.

This practice involves observation and understanding. You can then incorporate this into your everyday life. So, you gain a true understanding of your life. Positive change occurs organically and naturally. Your authentic self emerges from inside the conditioning. This is the manipulation that has taken over your life and increased over the years. It has held you back and you don't understand why.

This practice has a long and powerful background. It was developed from work by philosophers and psychologists. These include Epictetus, Plato, Spinoza, Schopenhauer, G.I. Gurdjieff, Rina Hands, and Robert Daniel Ennis. In addition, in terms of psychology, this practice uses similar methods to Gestalt. Gestalt is a method of seeing the individual holistically. In conclusion, through this practice you gain power in understanding self, of others, and of what shapes the world.


Unlock the full potential of your well-being through a holistic approach. This approach delves into the interplay of body, mind, and emotions. As your guide, I assist you in unraveling the complexities of your existence, starting with your body. Together, we explore how external influences shape and resonate within you. You shed light on the subtle triggers that impact your well-being. You discover where you are carrying your pain.


Moving to the realm of the mind, we navigate through the labyrinth of false narratives created by your imagination. You direct your focus towards your body and its immediate surroundings. This liberates you from the burdensome illusions that fuel emotional and physical pain.


Embracing your emotions becomes fuel for empowerment. You learn to confront and transcend the paralyzing grip of fear. You pave the way for your personal growth. In this practice, you break through barriers, fostering self-confidence, inner peace, emotional freedom, and a profound sense of personal power. Your journey toward a more enriched and empowered self begins with observation and understanding that define our therapeutic partnership.
