Programa de Verão em Jiko An


7 - 10
Family Constellations with Teresa Bucero

Based on Bert Hellinger¹s sistemic therapy, Family Constellations put the individual in touch with a family soul (the deep consciousness directing the destiny of a family) offering the possibility to heal the past and establish a new order between its members. A new perspective on life emerges from the recognition of what is and from the love born out of our experience of unity with all living beings. Possible to attend the course in order just to come in touch with this therapy or to work aspects of one¹s life, family or couple relationships.
Doshin is a disciple of Zen Master Hôgen who trained in Family Constellations with Holistic Therapist Carmen Garcia Pedrosa. With Teresa Bucero directs ³El Vivero², an agrocenter near Madrid dedicated to personal growth and organic farming.

8 - 11
Holotropic Breathwork & Zen Meditation
with Isabel Marquina, Mariano Cruz Fajardo & Shingan (Francis)

Through a slightly faster and deeper breathing, we reach an altered state of consciousness in which starts an exploration work of our psyche. With the help of our ²Ïnner Healer², we get in touch with those forgotten experiences that left their prints in our ways of perceiving and responding to life.
We will alternate Breathing with some Zen Meditation practice, that is, moments of silent inner alertness, in an attitude of complete presence to what the present moment offers us, without choice or preference, opening to the spaciousness of Here-Now. We would like to let you know that the practice of Holotropic Breathwork can give rise to an important physical or emotional activity. For this reason, the therapy is not indicated in case of pregnancy, heart disease, glaucoma, epilepsy, severe infeccious processes, severe psychiatric disorders, bone fractures and recent surgery interventions.
Isabel and Mariano were trained by Stan Groff and his collaborators. Certified by GTT.
