This workshop is dedicated to becoming aware of your self-image, the dynamics with the inner judge and re-discovering your true identity.
self image and true identity

What is the workshop about?

To be able to grow, to feel good and to experience the subtle manifestations of Being, we need a conscious relation with Space and a clear understanding of our Self-image which is a construct that blocks space itself. Perhaps you have noticed that when you feel good, when you feel expanded, when you feel connected with yourself, you perceive space in a different way than when you are depressed and disconnected.

This relation between how we experience Space (inner and outer) and wellbeing, is fundamental and relates to our awareness of our self-image, the dynamics with the Inner Judge and the re-discovery of our True Identity.

One of the basic functions of the Judge is to hold and protect a particular self-image through habits, judgements and mechanisms of defence and survival. Our self-image exists as a collection of psychic, emotional and physical boundaries which define who is “me” and who is the “other”. Very much like the walls of a castle, they protect and contain what is “inside” and separate from what is “outside”.

Our perception of Space, both inner and outer, is therefore conditioned by these walls, these images and by the Superego and they prevent us from experiencing the real nature of the mind: Creative Emptiness, Space in its absolute purity.

In 2001, I had the good fortune to participate in a seminar on the Inner Judge held by Avikal. During that weekend, a new sound, from somewhere within me was released. A desire to explore what had happened began to move and the taste of a new truth appeared from the depths of the “old” me. Since then, I’ve continued on this path and this has brought me, over the years, an ever increasing harmony with myself and the world around me. At the same time, I feel I am always at the beginning of something new in this art of exploring the vastness of my inner world.
