    “The Art of the Path”- Unveil the mask

     

    By following our inner compass, we will redefine our relationship with ourselves and trust the power of our creative core.

    Our difficulty to blossom in life stems from our fear of losing control. We usually want to have control over situations and things, as this gives us a sense of comfort and security.  In order to protect ourselves from harm and make our way in the world, we place different masks which compose our personality, over our true self.

     

    Our personality, helps us to know and do what we sense is required to please, to fit in and relate well with others, in order to get our basic needs met.This is fine since we were children, but as we grow these masks begin to trap us and prevent us from living out of our authentic self. 

     

    We are afraid of sharing our inner light, for fear that it may be extinguished.

    We are afraid of sharing our inner darkness, for fear that we will be humiliated, hurt, exposed and rejected.

    As a result we hide our true identity and we gradually separated from our own souls. We end up living half-hearted and divided lives.

    As we keep holding our masks we can never really open up and be honest about our true beliefs and feelings, not even with ourselves. 

    So in order to move into life and to explore its infinite possibilities, it is necessary to come into contact with our false self. As we are moving towards acknowledging and identifying aspects of our conditioned character (the ego), we open ourselves to genuine values ​​and to a new creative potential.

    By throwing our masks away is leading us to taste real freedom and allow us to be whoever we truly are.

    Having the courage to acknowledge our limitations, understand our own personality traits, behaviors, beliefs, needs, motives and embrace our own vulnerability,  is the process in which we begin knowing truly ourselves.

    During this two-day experiential workshop we will use several techniques, methods based on art therapy, body-oriented psychotherapy, meditation, group reflection and sharings, which will help us to develop self awareness and enhance our healing process.

    So we will be able to

    ●  Recognize the obstacles that are blocking our creative flow

    ●  Connect with and learn to trust our innate creative potential

    ●  Discover the inner strength and self-confidence that allows our creativity to blossom naturally

    ●  Recognize the potential for change and our capacity to make choices in order to live an authentic and meaningful life.

     

    Intuition is our inner compass, and it can guide us through life’s journey and its challenges. But  in order for this to happen, it is essential to take self responsibility and allow ourselves to explore our own internal and external process, as it appears and emerges here and now, in relation to us and to all around us. This will help us to attain awareness of how we are acting, what we are experiencing and also we will gain an understanding of what prevents us from venturing into life. 

     

    Through this experiential process we will co-create an environment that embraces the uniqueness of each individual, whilst simultaneously integrating the greater power manifested by the unified energy of the group.

     

    By embracing aspects of our personality, the beauty of our Being is revealed whilst it is manifested the power of creativity that is dwelling in us 

    As we are listening to our creative core, a whole range of new possibilities unfolds right in front of us!
