Want to attend? Sign-up now by completing this form.
Taught by Ibán Bermúdez Betancor, author of the book “When I embraced life (a hymn to hope)” and Expert in Emotional Intelligence through UNIR, and Heidi van Herpen, Reiki Master and Holistic Therapist.
This workshop is an invitation to stop suffering and see disease as an opportunity to bring out the best of ourselves. Instead of seeing disease as a punishment or something we must fight against, we can see it as an ally that has come to heal us. Therefore it would be interesting to listen to the message that it wants to convey and detect the emotional causes behind any disease so we can take actions to live our lives coherently. In addition we will learn; to understand the information our emotions give us, to know the difference between emotions, thoughts and feelings, how to change what we feel and transform limiting beliefs into empowering ones.
- Release suffering / express emotions
- Acquire responsibility / Patterns of emotional response (victimhood, resentment, guilt…)
- Emotional causes
- Meditations with the symptom
- Transform limiting beliefs into empowering ones
- Develop an action plan to live in coherence
In this workshop, Ibán and Heidi share keys and tools for you to find your best version. Feeling prolonged emotions like resentment, anger, sadness, guilt, frustration, anxiety etc. can cause severe damage to our bodies. These emotions can translate into for example: stomach ache, anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue, chronic anger, headache, lack of appetite, or a need to eat.
These symptoms are simply a message from our body. Warning us that there is an “intruder”; an emotion that is not properly dealt with. If we respond to this message by seeing it, listening to it, and accepting it, we can begin to let go of this emotion. Even to forgive and be grateful for it. To ultimately only preserve the wisdom (the lesson) and release the suffering.
Disease is an opportunity to bring out your best version!
Iban Bermúdez Betancor* is a living example. After receiving the unexpected news of his diagnosis, an advanced stage of cancer, Ibán makes the decision to follow his heart and discover the opportunity. With the help of José Antonio Manchado** and applying the keys and tools, Ibán found his best version. Today, he expresses his voice via a daily blog and his book, in a free and healthy state. Sharing wise reflections that inject life and values that need to be spread in this world: gratitude, joy and hope.
Heidi van Herpen, Reiki Teacher and Holistic Therapist has been traveling with José Antonio Manchado for over five years. Accompanying him in all his events, both in Spain and internationally. These trips have brought, and are still bringing, her many learnings from this Master of Rigpa Energetic Healing and Dharma Shamanic System. Through these experiences she started giving the workshop “Stop Suffering” two years ago. In which “emotional hygiene” is applied: letting go of ballast, resistance, conflicts, sufferings.
