Understanding of the Fixations as Key to Transformation
The primary habits and orientations of the mind, which develop as a response to our core heart suffering, are called the fixations. They're like addictive patterns that keep our life force in an endless circuit of reacting to life and reality unconsciously... rather than seeing what is actually here and possible. Join internationally respected psychiatrist Dr. Claudio Narnajo as he articulates the exact mechanisms and pathways of the fixations — and ways to break out of the "trance" so your energies can be free to be authentic, to love, and to create.
During this important session, you'll discover:
- The central trance and false belief of each type
- How awareness coupled with practice can transform the unconscious compulsion of each type
- Pathways to liberation
Dr. Claudio Naranjo (Valparaíso, Chile, 1932) began his professional life as a psychiatrist in Chile, where he worked in the fields of Medical Anthropology and Personality, and also explored psychedelic therapy with various new substances. Then he became an early staff member of Esalen Institute, and later developed a synthesis of spiritual and therapeutic methods known as the SAT process, which includes the psychology of enneatypes, Buddhist meditation, spontaneous movement as a means of letting go, therapeutic theater, the reelaboration of important life relationships including those in the early family and other elements, and which has been widely applied in many countries to personal development, therapeutic training and to teacher education.
Once a research associate at the Berkeley UC Campus, he was a pioneer in the integration of therapy and meditation, and more generally, of therapy and spirituality. As a disciple and successor of Fritz Perls, he has become a worldwide reference for Gestalt therapy, and the University of Udine in Italy granted him an honorary doctorate in Education for his militancy for a transformation in education that would make it relevant to psycho-spiritual development and to the evolution of society. He was nominated two years ago for the Peace Nobel Prize and he is the author of 25 books.
