The uniqueness of the process lies exactly in the combination of the mind/body approach that was practised by the ancient Greeks more than 2500 years ago: “A healthy mind in a healthy body.”
Throughout human history and across cultures, people have sought a deeper wisdom and understanding of the emotional strains of life. This has resulted in many hundreds of different therapies, practices, rituals and techniques that are all designed to improve our wellbeing and experience of life. The most modern of these is what we call clinical psychotherapy, but it is by no means the first. For centuries, people have pursued all manner of practices such as meditation, yoga and holistic therapies.
Our mission is to unite the mind, body, heart and offer profound healing globally. At The Place and with workshops, talks, events and outreach worldwide we combine the Kundalini practice (body) with meditation (mind), followed by the exploration in individual and group therapy of the thoughts and mind-connections that rule our lives. The secret to a contented life lies in the ability to manage our internal critic (IC), and during the therapy we explore and deconstruct our IC in order to establish coping mechanisms and dispel the myths that this destructive force in our lives can create. We listen far too often to this critical voice in our heads and we start to believe it – leading us into depression, self-sabotaging, self-harming and other destructive behaviours such as addiction, always to alleviate the pain we feel on the inside with external coping mechanisms.
At The Place in London, Bali and worldwide our aim is to change this dynamic by discovering our inner strengths and by solution-building to overcome this inner destructive force. Through practice of yoga, meditation and self-awareness we can achieve a framework with which to calm our minds and learn to become a good parent to our developing souls.
