Life Coaching

By understanding the structure of our subjective experiences, we can learn to create the life we want to live. Through deep analysis and fun exercises, we can gain insight into, sculpt, and modify the nature of our beliefs and behaviour. Neuro Linguistic Programming is a technique which allows us to use our past experiences to transform the present.

Lubka Amigues has an MA in psychology from the California Institute for Human Sciences. She works as a coach in NLP since 2006, and she teaches Paneurythmy during the summer retreats at IDEAL.

Bio-energetic or shamanic care is a method of energy balancing which aims at restoring the circulation of vital energy in the body as well as the proper functioning of the self-healing faculties proper to each individual. Balancing is done by intuitive means, which can be defined as the extra-sensory capacity to apprehend invisible phenomena without the aid of a physical instrument. This method helps to determine the causes of problems by collaborating with the unknown capacities of the human body to heal itself. Energy balancing is a therapeutic method that relies on a holistic approach to the body. It principally consist in neutralizing or suppressing the negative energies that disrupt the etheric body, allowing vital energy to circulate freely by eliminating the causes of many natural problems present or old.

Gael Darandovas discovered Bioenergy with Yann Lipnick. For Gael, Bioenergy is a path of liberation that leads to self- knowledge in our multiple dimensions.
