Sufi - Life - Death - Inner Child
"Die Before You Die"
A Sufi Centering Through Life and Death

Death is an organic, integral part of life. Because of fear, we create a division between life and death. We cling to the past, our beliefs and memories, and to the future, the desires and dreams, and we experience life only mentally, losing the true reality of what we are.

To die and to be born is a Sufi paradox, the understanding that death and life happens each moment. The death of what we believe we are, in its different manifestations is necessary for recognizing our true nature, so that we can be totally alive.

Sufis are lovers of life, they don't choose which aspects to celebrate, whatever life presents is a reason to celebrate. A Sufi lives each moment as the last, in this way the moment is unique and absolute. Each experience of life becomes a great mystery and a great adventure.

In this Course we are going to experience how the energies can be liberated from attachments and identifications that create suffering in our lives, using different Sufi techniques that help us to wake up our vital energy, to open, to look and to recognize themes and situations where we feel stagnated and tense. We will explore where we stop our energy because of fear of losing somebody or something: the fear of surrender to the unknown. We learn how to create an ambiance of loving acceptance around those fears and tensions through Sufi meditations.

The energy is liberated when the relaxation of surrender starts to happen. We bring this vital energy back to our center using "Zikrs", a Sufi technique combining movement, breath and sound, celebrating the beauty and the mystery of life and death.

to complete our birth.
It doesn't matter how long
you have forgotten,
only how soon
you remember"

Primal Feelings - Healing the Inner Child

Most of the difficulties we find as adults, in relating to people, to life and to ourselves has its origin in the first seven years of our lives. When, at those early ages, we didn't receive the love, care and touch that is every child's primary need, and many times instead we have been punished, not accepted and/or neglected, we create protective layers in order not to feel the hurt. Those layers - that manifests in our physical, energetic and mental bodies - cover our essential qualities and the true potential we are all born with.

In this course, we are going to reconnect our child - that is still living inside of us - waiting to be freed to live its full potential. This process involves going back to the past, consciously, within an ambiance of support and loving care of the group structure. We are going to meet our parents and caretakers from that time, in order to complete unfinished situations. This can be a painful process, as the protective layers have been created not to feel the hurt from situations at that time. And it is also very touching and liberating, to free and regain the energy of the primary feelings and emotions that were our first language as a small child. When we give space and recognition to our "inner child" and its needs, it doesn't need to act out its wounds in our present daily life. This is a process of freeing oneself as well as all the people involved in your past story.

An important part of the work is to contact our "wise adult". This is a part of every human being that embodies the universal love and care of existence, it has always been, and will always be whole. From this perspective, we connect with our "inner child"; we support its process and take care of its needs.

This is a work of initiation into becoming a full adult human being. We take responsibility for our lives and start seeing the experiences from the past as possibilities to grow; and we learn to give space and absorb in our system the aliveness, spontaneity, freshness and creativity of our child's energy.
