Embodied spirituality

3 days training in IMT with Asaf Rolef-Ben Shahar

Can we think deeply, connect meaningfully and be grounded in reality and still open to spirit?

New-age religion has contributed to a wider spiritual variety, which is not necessarily bound to religious practice or prescribed dogma. At the same time, to a great extent, it created a spiritual-pop-culture, magnifying the chasm between rigorous psychotherapeutic work and spiritual positioning. Indeed, many methods of psychotherapy have tried to deal with this – including psycho-synthesis, Jungian analysis, Core-energetics and more.

In these three days we will together get lost in the search of the place of spirituality within the therapeutic dyad. We shall explore that with the purpose of finding spiritual connection that is both embodied and deepens the therapeutic, relational, and human connection. We would seek to search for the spiritual dimension in all I-thou connections.

During the workshop we shall look for ways of using those meaningful connections to a larger body for expanding connection with ourselves and the other, and for enabling therapeutic and healing processes.

This is not a workshop of knowledge. While relating to philosophers and spiritual methodologies, we shall not find answers but instead wonder together, in a facilitative way, and seek connection for that which is within us that is, at the same time, larger than us. By the end of this workshop we would hopefully have some clearer, more daring questions.
