Of the masculine and feminine
5-day experiential workshop
2 Holorenic Breathing sessions
Para cultivar la masculinidad y la feminidad eternas en el siglo XXI
WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP?
A human development workshop to discover and experience relationship between the sexes from the point of view of expanded consciousness, forgiveness, acceptance and joy.
In this workshop, discover how to accept the opposite sex with freedom, love, admiration and respect, without fear or the need to control the other. Man and woman will never be able to fully understand each other because they are completely different beings. That being said, it is possible to accept each other in a loving and constructive way, as complementary beings desiring to joyfully walk the path of life together.
Learn how to establish a clean, courageous, sincere, happy, creative and respectful relationship between men and women. One that is without psychological or emotional dependencies.
The focus of the workshop is to discover how Jungian archetypes work from within, and how they determine our behavior.
Practise a friendly and loving relationship with the opposite sex. Learn how to relate without fear, competitiveness or a fight for power. This is what takes place when we accept each other from the heart, even in situations where we don’t fully come to understand the opposite sex. Often, understanding is the dangerous first step towards controlling another person. And control implies the destruction of respect and real love.
Even though the objective of the workshop is not to find a mate but to understand and experience what it means to be a man or woman in today’s world, it is easy for someone who is single to find a partner in this fluid and commitment-based context. Additionally, it becomes easy for those in relationship to find ways to relate to their partners in a more profound way.

WHO IS THIS FOR?
This workshop is for men who desire to learn more about their masculinity while also discovering their feminine side; thus allowing them to be simultaneously virile and sensitive.
This workshop is for women who desire to learn more about their femininity as well as discover their masculine side; thus allowing them to become more feminine and complete.
This workshop is for anyone: coupled or not, married, separated, widowed, single, heterosexual or homosexual. The workshop is for anyone who desires to have a profound experience to transform relationship (with self and others) so that it becomes more kind, creative, loving and profound.
The activities of the workshop include lectures and a variety of fun exercises. Additionally, there are 2 holorenic breathwork sessions which help to foster a sense of comfort amongst the group, to open new dimensions of what it means to be a man or woman, and opens a new frontier for personal relationships (regardless of whether one is in a relationship).
The workshops are run in groups of between 20 to 50 people on our campus devoted to human development, Can Benet Vives, which is 50 kilometres from Barcelona in the heart of Montnegre National Park. There are specialised massage therapists available during the entirety of the 5-day course.
