Why this training?
Being a woman in a hiddenly or not patriarchal society is a difficult condition. We learn from an early age so many things that being a woman should mean, that it is a struggle to be ourselves, and be able to respect and support us.
About me: During my university studies, I realized that being an activist was essential since I wanted to live in a world with peace, justice, and equality.
In gestalt therapy, I found the best tool for self-transformation, and I stayed committed in my social change vision, so I created the combination: gestalt and social change training.
I am teaching the combination of emotional and socio-political combination the last two years, and I really enjoy the transformative, meaningful results.
Last year I was trained under the Gestalt Institute of Barcelona in 'Women sexuality and healing patriarchy' and I had no idea that I was so deeply affected by patriarchy as a woman and a human being.
So, I decided to transmit my knowledge to all of you.
