Personal Statement about Training Program:
The core of my training program is an intimate perspective of mine, that is, facilitating an intimate relationship between the focuser and his own life, making his feelings and senses be progressively growing in awareness by optionally offering an integration with spontaneous dance and music therapy, bioenergetics and eventually meditation. it is like a great bridge between the before and the after of a breathing space forwards an insideout biospiritual evolution and wellness of body and soul.

A Sample of my Work:
'Tell me and I'll forget
Show me and I'll remember
Let me do it and I will understand it.'
