 Mia Leijssen -  Portals of Living Forward in Times of Crisis

Mia Liejjsen

Focusing during difficult times and life-changing events makes a world of difference. A call into awakening can be nurtured and inspired by ancient wisdom of mystics and scientific findings about nature and the universe. This will be illustrated by a few personal experiences and vignettes from therapy. Focusing allows a multiplicity of truths. With experiential invitations and exercises participants get the opportunity to discover fresh bodily felt meanings arising from their personal portals to transformation.
