Programul de formare profesională – in lucru

Abordarea Compassionate Inquiry dezvăluie și eliberează bazele traumelor din copilărie, a constrângerilor și a emoțiilor reprimate și menținute în corp, care se află la rădăcina bolilor și a dependențelor.

Cu toții dorim să fim văzuți, auziți, înțeleși și iubiți. Ne vindecăm atunci când ne simțim în siguranță în relație, conectați cu corpurile noastre, cu respirația noastră, cu prezentul și unii cu alții. Doar atunci când experimentăm conexiunea cu noi înșine și cu ceilalți, ne putem deschide către vulnerabilitatea și emoțiile noastre și putem descoperi și exprima ceea ce este adevărat pentru noi. Această exprimare este ceea ce ne vindecă.

Scopul abordării Compassionate Inquiry este de a aduce compasiune, respect, acceptare, înțelegere, vindecare, libertate și conexiune umanității printr-o comunitate internațională de practicieni abili Compassionate Inquiry.

Acest program este conceput pentru a instrui terapeuți și profesioniști din domeniul sănătății și nu este destinat unui cadru pentru terapie personală.
