La por és una experiència purament física. Ens prepara per atacar o fugir.
La por és una de les energies més potents que ens trobem en la vida. Ens empenya a percebre el món que ens envolta. No és agradable, però és part intrínseca de la vida.
Fear is a body function. It keeps us awake and alive, because it makes us react in dangerous situations. Fear shows us that life is insecure: We don’t know what will happen. As we don’t like this, we react to fear. We try to get rid of it. We do huge physical, emotional and mental efforts to avoid fear. Instead of using the energy of fear, we invest our energy in fighting fear. As a result, we get paralyzed, and we are unable to think. We squeeze our bodies and loose our energy. You can learn to recognize what you do to avoid fear. You can learn to stop these unnecessary efforts. And you can learn to use fear as the powerful energy that allows you to face the unknown with confidence. Presentation: Saturday, November 30th, 2013, 19 h in the Open World Center, Moscow (www.openw.ru). Please confirm attendance. Free entrance.
Anger is our natural response to people or situations that threaten us. It makes us sharp, awake, and powerful, so we can protect ourselves. Anger arises spontaneously in given situations, and after dealing with the situation, it vanishes again. However, anger is not always a liberating outburst. Sometimes we get stuck in it. We repeat angry thoughts. We feel helpless. We don’t know what to say. We feel guilty. We get stuck in hate. And worst of all, we become unable to stop the situation or person that attacks us. You will learn in this presentation what you usually do to twist the power of anger. You will recognize different attitudes, ways of thinking and moods that repeat when you become angry. In several practical demonstrations you will learn how you can let them go. And you will see the surprising outcome of using anger naturally. Presentation Sunday, May 11th, 19 h in the Open World Center (www.om-space.ru), Moscow.
Crisis, unclear working conditions, changing family situations… Life is uncertain. This generates in our bodies a big amount of energy. We experience it often as nervousness, anxiety, or fear. We do many efforts to avoid this energy, because we want to live a “safe” and comfortable life. We tense our muscles, we lock our joints, we reduce our breathing – we get stuck in an experience of impotence. You can learn to identify the physical energy generated by uncertainty. You can learn to notice how you block this energy in your body and in your mind. And you can learn to let go these blocks. The retained energy can flow through your body, raising your level of strength and confidence. Presentation: Saturday, March 29th 2014, 19 h, Open World Center (www.om-space.ru), Moscow.
Stuck in fear, guilt or anger? A way to use emotions as power Fear, guilt, anger, joy – emotions often define our mood, our way of thinking, and our actions. Emotions happen in the body. They are meant to give us an additional push of energy in specific moments of our lives. When the situation is over, the sense of the emotion vanishes. Emotions are usually intense experiences. When they are uncomfortable, we try to control and tame them: We try to understand them, to know why they happen and what they mean. We convert the physical experience into a mental one. We twist the natural flow of the emotion in the body, and convert it into an unpleasant and lasting experience. In this presentation you will learn about different ways of how we deal with emotions and get stuck to them. And in several practical demonstrations you can learn to deal with a specific emotion and transform it into power. Presentation and demonstrations: Saturday, October 19th, 2013, 19 h in the Open World Center (www.openw.ru). Free entrance. Please confirm your assistance.
Success is the fulfillment of our will. We focus our strategy on what we want. We need to go uncertain paths, try new options – and we need to dare to fail. When we are scared of failing, it becomes a trap. We focus our energy and intelligence on not failing and forget actually our aim. Thus, our options to succeed sink dramatically. In this presentation I want to give you an overview about how we usually relate to failure and how we unwillingly sabotage our chances to succeed. You will learn to recognize your personal way of dealing with fear. And you can experience in practical demonstrations how to transform this fear into personal confidence. Presentation: Sunday, September 22nd, 2013, 19 h, in the Open World Center (www.openw.ru), Moscow.
The bright side of fear: Using fear as a motivating force in life Fear is one of the most powerful energies we meet in life. It aims us to be aware of the world surrounding us. It is not comfortable – but, it’s an intrinsic part of life. Sometimes we try to avoid fear: We try to control the nervousness in our body. We try to control fear by understanding it. But fear doesn’t go away: We fear to be afraid, to face insecurity, to be in unknown situations. We invest a great deal of our energy in fighting fear – and convert fear into a paralyzing force. Fear is a body experience that can easily dealt with, if we agree to face it as what it is: It is a flow of body vibration, a cold shivering; it’s a kind of energy that runs through our bodies. The more energy we have, the easier we can recover form injuries or heal from illness. The more powerful we are, the easier it is for us to achieve our aims. In this presentation you will see different demonstrations of how you can learn to deal with fear, relaxing with the body experience and being confident with fear. As a result, you can gather all your energy to face whatever situation you meet in life. Presentation August 26th 2013, 19 h in the Open World Center (www.openw.ru).

We judge, criticize and even punish ourselves for not being good enough: We say or think nasty things about ourselves, we feel worthless, we think that we don’t deserve to be happy. We loose respect for ourselves. This attitude weakens us extremely. It binds our attention in repetitive and hopeless thoughts. It awakes feelings of guilt and penitence. We squeeze our bodies and suffer. Self-respect is the ability to look at our weaknesses and failures, no matter how painful or frightening they are. If we manage to do so, we can learn from our weaknesses, and every failure becomes a chance to learn and grow. In this presentation you will see in several demonstrations how you can learn to develop basic self-respect. This will enable you to face difficult situations with more confidence. And you may learn to look forward to what life might bring to you each new day – with expectation and curiosity. Presentation on Saturday, June 8th, 2013 in the Open World Center, Moscow (www.openw.ru).
Fear of failing, need of appreciation, lack of confidence – these are different forces which push us to strive to be perfect: We have to do everything right. Our attention focuses on avoiding doing mistakes, thus forgetting our personal goals and wishes. The more we try to avoid mistakes, the more we get scared of failing, and the more efforts we do to be perfect. We don’t dare to risk in order to win. We cling to proven strategies, loosing our creativity, and with time, our love for life. We become slaves of perfection. To excel in life we need to learn from our mistakes, and thus dare to do them. We need to be willing to be imperfect. This is a fearful experience. In several individual demonstrations you can learn how you cling to perfection, which efforts you do to avoid failing, and how to relax these efforts in order to focus your full attention and energy on the goals and wishes that are really dear to you. Presentation and demonstrations Saturday, April 13th, 2013, 19 h in Open World Center (www.openw.ru), Moscow. Free admission.
