Beyond the mask: from the primeval veil of clay to the unveiling of the self
1. Beyond the mask: from the primeval veil of clay to the unveiling of the self
The workshop aims to provide an intense psycho-body experience that allows participants to take an inner journey of awareness into their ego masks. These superstructures are important protective parts of the personality, which need to be known and integrated, in order to reach the most complete knowledge possible of the Inner Self, the place of our elevated Consciousness, free from personal history and related traumas, and consequently the manifestation of our authentic Nature, of our most powerful and true inner resources, of our free, wild and healthy deep fire. The practice will lead participants to discover their own masks, aided by the use of Mother Earth medicines such as clay and essential oils. They will go through the ambushes of the 4 directions of the Medicine Wheel according to the Mesoamerican shamanic tradition. Through work in pairs and groups, the masks are made to speak and unveiled for the expansion of consciousness and authentic dialogue with the Self.
Knowing the masks allows us to move from identification to disidentification in order to transform consciousness and awaken the Self.
2. Yoga and Biotransenergetics: Thousand-year-old Traditions Mixing to Contact the Self
A workshop for a unique experience: combining the power of the millenary practice of Yoga with the techniques of Biotransenergetics through the Orixàs, archetypes of the Afro-Brazilian tradition. The intention is to show how BTE intensifies contact with the transpersonal self also within the practice of yoga. Through psycho-body work, contact is made with breathing, the asanas -archetypes of yoga- associated with the chakras to which the qualities of the Orixàs correspond, contacted through mantras, breaths and movement sequences according to the BTE Dream Body methodology. This integration gives power to maps shared between Yoga and BTE, increasing awareness of one’s functioning on the 5 levels: physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual. The intention is not just to practise for greater wellbeing but to make an archetypal journey to cross thresholds, access the transpersonal realms and enter into authentic dialogue with the Self.
