Emotional healing work is an essential part of the PachaMama experience. Therapy groups and workshops designed to cleanse and heal the emotional body are scheduled year round, and offered as part of the Transformation Cycle.
The purpose of emotional therapy is to explore the buried wounds and pain of the past, bring unconscious patterns and conditioning to light and integrate suppressed emotions into the present. The work of emotional healing allows one to live more wholly, with more presence, self-acceptance and joy; to move beyond passivity and victim hood into responsibility and conscious choice.
Emotional healing paves the way to meditation as it allows one to rest in the acceptance of one’s self. It is not about “self-improvement” but rather about shedding the burden of trauma and limiting conditioning, allowing new ways of engaging with life to be discovered.
In an atmosphere of love and awareness, using different techniques such as bioenergetics and Gestalt, it is possible to pierce through layers of protection. This process allows one to uncover psychological patterns, release primal feelings and suppressed energy and thus return to the essence of who we are. The only way to heal the wounds is to expose them, to bring them to the light.
When the longing to be free is bigger than the fear of being exposed, one can open themself to experiences that re-program the deepest beliefs about the self. This workshop helps the individual to see emotional incidents from the past in order to liberate the flow of energy held in dysfunctional psychological behavior patterns.
The Wisdom of Breath is an invitation to reconnect with our most precious and prosaic resource – the breath. Using simple breathing techniques, its power is revealed by stirring up and bringing into the light of awareness unconscious emotions and patterns of mind. Memories and past experiences that have been stored in the basement of the soul make room for healing and integration. This deep journey is facilitated by adopting a meditative approach while accepting and trusting one’s ability to be present in the moment, whatever may arise. Clarity and maturity naturally manifest in this safe container, allowing past wounds to heal and patterns that are no longer of service to be shed. This results in reemerging anew into deeper acceptance of oneself, one’s history and life itself.
Growing in Love is a gentle and unique 3-day workshop designed to shake the dust off of the heart and give a taste of the Path of Love (which will not be running in 2016). The workshop is about discovering ways to be more authentic and honest, connecting with oneself and others in ways that create trust and joy. All people have a longing for love and to be seen and heard. This work is about awakening that longing inside. Working with honest, loving self-exposure, supports the connection with true strength and value through unique exercises and meditations. From this place of self-love and trust, life becomes an invitation into the unknown and anything is possible.
