Aarti Asrani and Anil Thomas

10 days of mindfullness and psychotherapy

Invitation at $1200

Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, represent an ingrained practice aimed at accessing the sacred space, fostering communication from the body and the higher self, all within a state of connectedness. Our work operates on a psychological level, seeking to restore lost symmetry by addressing issues such as the 'not I', enmeshment, and contaminations related to self-worth, capability and identity.

Throughout this program, partcipants will gain insights into:

  • Identifying and navigating enmeshment, fear-based orientations, and control-centric relationships. 

  • Developing an awareness of stress and anxiety buildup and understanding its bodily responses.

  • Cultivating dimensional communication by accessing the ether and building report.  

  • Strengthen Problem-Solving Skills.

  • Practicing presence in the 'now', within the body.

  • Engaging in the practices of cleansing, gratification, connection, and contribution.

Irrespective of your profession, the integration of mindfulness has the potential to profoundly transform your work experience and contribute to the development of more meaningful and enriching relationships with all those you encounter.

Here's what's included:

• 5 days of intense work and noble silence for nearly 14 hours daily, touching deep psychological injunctions and triggers of unresolved issues and         blocks. Accessing the enmeshment that prevents the full presence of self to contribute in a generative space of relations or work.
