Course overview
In an age of concreteness and worries, the spiritual dimension present in each of us is often neglected, as well as the important resources that it can offer within a therapeutic path.
Reconnecting with this dimension can activate thoughts, emotions and new awareness that can play an important role both during therapy and in daily life.
The training offers a path of 16 hours of purely experiential nature, aimed at stimulating not only the reflection on the theme, but also the practice on themselves.
