THE BROKEN SELF©
Have you ever felt (or are you feeling) broken?
Even though the difficult and painful situation has already passed, the sensation of feeling broken is still alive.
Have you heard of "heartbreak"?
There is medical research that shows that the emotional pain is transferred to the parts of the body and the body suffers what you feel.
If we reflect on our lives, we can see how many times we have felt lost, or we have lost someone, we have felt unheard, and/or not loved. We have felt fear, sadness, abandonment.
An interesting tool to work with PTSD.
All these emotions have somehow made us feel "split" into pieces - broken.
In this workshop from the Gestalt approach and from the beautiful metaphor of the ceramic technique you will know:
- To identify which are these broken parts of your life
- To find the nutritious part of each experience that has happened to you
- To integrate the pieces of your life in a powerful and transformative way.
We do not seek to "forget" or erase these painful experiences, we seek to accept and integrate them, and from this act we will be closer to healing and transformation.
During this workshop we will explore the main teaching from the Kintsugi as a philosophy and the Resilience theory.
This will be a "hands on" workshop, where the "process" will be the most interesting. The "how" will be more important than the "what" or "why".
The final result is not the objective, although you will be surprised at what you can create and, above all, integrate into your "here and now"
