Week 1The first week was simply entitled "Helbredelse" - you can translate it into Healing or Recovery, take your pick. The teachers were 3 of the regular teachers this school have. I didn't know any of them when we started, and when we ended I was simply very happy to have met Andreas Nordby, and to have seen the paintings of Irene Mihlendorf. Andreas has "my job" - teaching, writing, healing - doing a lot of the stuff I dream of doing, and making a living of it. Irene simply paint very beautiful, happy, colorful pictures, and I was happy to be taught by her.
The topic of this course was all over the place, and I liked that - being able to sample a little bit of everything, when it comes to the world of healing, where a lot of opinions and techniques exist. Here I will simply tell you about the bits I liked most.
We learned a lot about projection. That what fascinate us in others, probably are sides to our selves we don't want to admit. Maybe we don't want to seem aggressive, and blame everybody else for being it. Maybe we don't think we're intelligent, and praise everybody else for being it! So it's a place to start working, on becoming a balanced human being, where every part of us is expressed - maybe a lot, maybe a little, but not always and not never. That way we'll also be able to see other people for what they are, and not just in terms of (not) being aggressive/intelligent... We learned a simple exercise to straighten things out - I'm not sure the technique is important, but the point is simply to say "I now stop projecting unto you, and I will stop being the target of your projection on me". I intend to work with this.
We worked a lot with colors and paint (guided by Irene, mentioned above). And I learned a lot from this, including that I like to paint! So I'm going to paint some more!
Sometimes an exercise would simply start with some dance, and maybe a song where we could sing along. Again, I'd like do this at home, whenever I feel like I could use some more energy. Such a simple trick!
