Overcoming Self Restriction through Conscious and Empowered Self Expression
November 9 @ 4:00 pm - November 11 @ 3:30 pm| R2200
Our reality and experience in life is determined by the character position in which we find ourselves. We may live the anxious, self doubting, or mistrustful character. This position may be historically determined through social conditioning, or ingeniously through the character we create for ourselves for optimal security and comfort. It changes constantly through our interaction with the world and with ourselves. But are they the best positions for effective living? Or are they the root cause for unsustainable health and addictive behavior?
Is it a stern voice of your headmaster, a disapproving parent whose voice has become internalized and subconsciously steers your waking days. Are these the best positions for effective living, the voices of others driving our daily flow? Are these imprints, the root cause for unsustainable health? Is the character position of “always wanting to please others” restrictive and limiting? Is the subconscious position of “neediness that quests for gratification” the force that lies behind addictive behavior? Want to replace this imprint with something more encouraging, less judgmental, kinder? We are able to shift our imprints.
“One of the most powerful, accessible and cost-effective psychotherapeutic tools I have witnessed. It can be used for a broad range of conditions both psychological and physical. It enables people to discover the root cause of issues in a safe environment and supports them in participating in their own healing. I believe it would have a revolutionary impact and I hope to see it available to the public.” Dr Shivon Dawson – Integrative Psychiatrist
Dr. Raoul Goldberg will present his approach to Participatory Medicine and Participatory Psycho-development;
We get to see how to step out of our busy minds to observe ourselves in a moment, showing us how we can find out where we are at all times. When we know who we become and in what position we are, we can choose to shift this position and create the character of our own choice for maximizing our life potential. Simply put we learn quite easily to step into our own internalized characters we create that can support our anxious self, or hyper, or angry being. We can begin to unpack the cast of characters in a fun safe creative way and pair them up with one’s own internalized imprints we create; they will begin to show up once you create them and perhaps reactivity is not longer the reflex to triggers.
He is supported by PATH Facilitator Dana Smirin who has been developing the work with him for the past 6 years, herself having come out of a 7year dance with active Cancer which drove her to deeply visit within, meeting the characters that drove her life allowing her to realize how highly reactive and triggered she lived her life. She was in constant adrenal overdrive with a busy type-A professional life. She ignored chronic fatigue and all health signals because her needs to do, prove and please had her blind to the gentle signs of her bodies exhaustion. Smirin is now in Remission and experiences life from a different perspective and is still managing to hold a full life far more creatively driven in her entrepreneurial work.
“The single most powerful experiential technique or therapeutic tool for self discovery. It is safe, empowering and will revolutionaries the need and dependency on psychotherapy because it cuts to the heart of the limiting issue. This has been a profound and moving experience,” Dr Rene Nassen – Head of Child Clinical Unit, Lentegeur Hospital/Stellenbosch University South Africa
Enlightened approach to therapy and healing. It included all aspects of self in a very fluid and practical way. I enjoyed and benefited from the process. Megan de Beyer Eco Pschycologist, UK
