Secrets of Human Interaction (Workshop)

Archetypes of the Soul 2 – Archetypical defense mechanisms

3rd – 6th of October 2019 in Berlin (MahaYoga Zentrum) – no previous knowledge required

Chloe Hünefeld and Dr. Doru Bodea will present in this three and a half day workshop insights, with theoretical and practical components, about archetypical defense mechanisms.

This workshop is a premiere, as it is not only the very first time it will be held, but also the knowledge and information have not been presented in any previous seminar, workshop or lecture by Chloe Hünefeld or Dr. Doru Bodea.

About the Workshop

This three and a half day workshop takes place in a relaxed atmosphere of the  MahaYoga Zentrum in Berlin, where you can unwind in the idyllic courtyard during the breaks.

Every human being carries within himself the true inner center of his individual being – his Soul. This center has several qualities that are awake and active to a certain degree. Knowing our own soul and awakening all it’s aspects gives us the opportunity to follow our Heart, which is traditionally considered as the first serious step on the spiritual path.

In the alchemical tradition the Archetypes of the Soul are considered as the key to the elevated levels of our personality that we usually do not perceive consciously.

Working with the archetypes of the soul enables us to get to know ourselves from a transfigurative point of view and to appreciate who we are. Through this loving approach to our own being we raise the frequency in body, mind and soul and can profoundly change our lives. If we look at ourselves from a perspective that allows us to assume that we are endless, beautiful, fundamental, and divine, it is easier to believe (and thus later make reality) what we sometimes thought impossible. For example: I am an endless source of love. In me rests the power of the whole universe.
