Mastery of the self and circumstances through Raja Yoga Meditation

 

Name of the leader

Jayanti KIRPALANI

Institution

Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (UK), London, UK

 

Topic

In a world affected by crises of different types, people working in telecommunications are often the first point of contact in an emergency. The qualities needed to play such a role are coolness, clarity and the ability to respond with empathy and compassion. Raja Yoga is an ancient form of meditation whose re-discovery in modern times equates to mastery of thoughts, feeling and emotions, a state of peace, truth, stability and clarity. In the workshop, we will focus on understanding the mind and the mechanisms with which it operates, to enable us to attain mastery of the self and the power to deal with our own emotional needs, as well as those of our families and colleagues, and to help others in the world who connect with us at their time of need.  We will use a combination of functional and experiential exercises to explore how to put the theory of meditation into daily practice.

The letter in a bottle in the Internet Ocean: implicit requests for help in e-mails sent to Telefono Amico Italia – Discussion group

 

Name of the leaders
Paola FORNASIER, Luca RUSI

 

Institution

Dept. of General Psychology University of Padua– Italy

 

Topic

The e-mail service provided by Telefono Amico in Italy offers the opportunity to find help when the final and irreversible crossing appears as a possibility. The analysis of e-mail texts - written by individuals who turn to Telefono Amico with an open or latent request for help in handling suicidal intention - intends to study a number of descriptive ambits in order to make inferences about the universe of representations that characterise suicidal thought. In particular, the aim is to analyse the connection between grief and its representations in relation to the coping abilities on which the operator can act to allow the person asking for help to find new routes that can be alternative to the choice of death, as they are already open in the person’s own world of representations.

Self Awareness: Recognizing one’s own Emotions.

An International Workshop – Painting in Silence, without words

 

Name of the leader
Cornelie  Breu

 

TES Organisation

Telefonseelsorge München, Germany

 

Topic

In recent years, an increasing number of experts have come to the conclusion that intelligence is not limited to semantic or mathematic capacities. “Personal” or “emotional” intelligence also determines a person’s standing in life.

The first element of “emotional intelligence” is the area in which we ascertain our own emotions – self-awareness, recognizing our feelings, as they occur. Not being in touch with our feelings allows them to control us and makes it difficult to recognize the feelings of other persons.

Self-awareness requires practice and the willingness to be attentive and mindful of our inner life. Empathy – knowing what others feel - requires emotional self-awareness and is the presupposition of knowing human nature. It is an important part of our work of telephonic listening.

By means of art therapy I invite you to get in touch with your feelings. Using a lot of paint but few words we will try to come closer to our known and unknown emotions.

It would be nice to gather participants of many different nations in this workshop who are willing to delve into the intensity and the pleasure of working together.

Non-violent communication (impact on our body)

 

Name of the leader

Ebrahim Saleem

Organisation

Non violent communication center, France

 

Topic

In these workshops, participants will become familiar with the notion of “needs”, as energy that serves their personal development, and explore the relationship between needs and feelings. Once this relationship is set, a more fruitful communication may be established. Every one is thus induced to pay attention not only to one’s own well-being but also to other people’s.

Some practical exercises in small groups will be proposed, with a few theoretical explanations. There will be particular emphasis on  how to improve one’s quality of presence (for instance when listening to a caller) and the power of an authentic non-judgemental attitude.

This workshop will measure the impact of Non-Violent Communication on our body. Some tests used in “Ki-Aikido” (Japanese martial art) will be practiced, and then put into the context of Non- Violent Communication.

N.B. No particular physical condition is required to participate in this workshop.

METAKINEBIOLOGIE®  “Tool of integration”

 

Name of the leader
Philippe Bertholon

 

Institution

METAKINEBIOLOGIE® 107, rue des ACACIAS  01170 GEX - F

 

Topic

Métakinébiologie® is a concept and a practice developed by Philippe Bertholon. It integrates recent discoveries regarding the functioning of the brain and of the “body-brain” system. It enables us to become aware of an emotional block and to accompany its release. It is an effective method to release stress and strengthen or restore one’s own balance and energy. It is addressed to everybody. The neuro-muscular test is the basic tool of this method. This test is practiced simply by manual pressure: it is questioning the memory of the body. The human being is considered as a whole, a coherent set of interactive elements. This method makes it possible to discover stress factors through muscular reaction. Under stress, a muscle gives in to light pressure; once released from stress, it resists such pressure without a problem. Our body responses are astonishingly precise.

The proposed work consists of managing group dynamics via circularity of communication, the contract aspect of which is underscored.

Topic

TelefonSeelsorge in Germany suffers from the phenomenon of so-called “fake” calls. We know that we all have to deal with this sometimes, when someone is telling us their life history, and even in our own story.  In the workshop we will discuss the following subjects:

truth / sincerity – lie / deception – authenticity / self testing.

We will play communicative games on the borderline of desire and frustration

Befriending or can we find befrienders? (To be friend or not to be?)

 

Name of the leader

Topic

One of our principles is befriending. If it is so important – have we enough volunteers  to  offer  TES 24 h service. In Olsztyn we have  various experiences. Before  we  became a  member  of  BEFRIENDERS INTERNATIONAL  in 1987  we  were  asked ;  can  you follow  all  your  and  our  principles, incl.  24 h service?  At that time  we  were  on  duty 12 hours a  day.  But  we  were  accepted  as  the member of  BEFRIENDING  INTERNATIONAL and they  said  to us : we know you  will achieve this  goal. And we  found  our  own  way of  recruiting new volunteers: we have been offering 24  h service in Olsztyn since 1994.
