It’s All One: Awakening to Reality, Within and Without (Workshop)

IEC Conference: 2023

Although modern psychology and medicine concern themselves mostly with individual suffering and healing, in realty our development and health or illness depend on the multiple interconnections between the person and her/his/their environment. If there is such a thing that Planetary Awakening, where there is a consciousness shift for the whole planet, joining humans with their world, it surely needs to involve people’s inner healing.  This talk, based on Gábor Maté’s international bestseller, The Myth of Normal, will articulate and demonstrate that for a complete view of how we grow, thrive or suffer or heal, we need an integrated perspective that sees past the false barriers set up by the individualistic ideology of our current culture.
