It is common knowledge that the personality we all recognize as "I" is formed in the first 6-7 years of our life. At this tender age of absolute dependence on our parents, we absorb behaviors and feelings without filtering them.
Whether we had a happy or unhappy childhood we have embraced messages and behaviors from family and education which cause us a split between what we feel inside and what we think we should be on the outside.
In the Primal Deconditioning process you will be accompanied step by step, going back in time, exploring the conditionings received at each stage of development of your childhood (releasing the most unconscious layers of your personality) and recovering the valuable parts of yourself at each stage. By healing yourself at the roots, you will have access again to your potential and you may celebrate the freedom of being that is regained when the weight you have been carrying so far dissolves.
It is an experience-based approach using different therapeutic tools and supported by powerful meditation techniques. It includes both the therapy work needed to find out what is conditioned and non-essential in you, and the spaces of meditation where you can individually reconnect with what is natural and essential in you.
During this exploration:
You will experience the rules and roles that have been imposed on you by your surroundings and how they have molded a false personality around you.
You will recognize the compensations you developed in the hope of being acknowledged, accepted and felt.
You will have full space and support to feel what you would have really needed to express as a child.
You will have full space and support to release tensions and repressed feelings such as anger and pain that block the flow of vitality in your body and integrate them.
You will have the chance to discover inside yourself, as the adult that you are now, the strength and power to stand up for and heal the child inside you.
You will have the unique chance to recognize the true gift of life you were given and take responsibility for it.
The group is residential and creates a strong bonding and support system amongst the participants. For the whole duration of the group the participants will be asked to refrain from any direct contact with the outside world. The group is led in both English and Greek language.
