MY LIFE WORK
My life discovery is Psychophonetics, the first practical application of Psychosophy (Rudolf Steiner’s foundation for Anthroposophical psychology and psychotherapy) - out of many years of research, studies and experimental work with transformational theatre, humanistic and transpersonal psychology, Anthroposophy, Psychosophy and my personal journey of healing, development and transformation.
DRAMA AND EMPATHY
I believe that
empathy was originally created in theatre and its further development presents
as the cutting edge in human evolution.
PSYCHOLOGY OF FREEDOM
Psychophonetics – a Psycho-Development of Freedom,
is a creative process for the
conscious cultivation of empathy with oneself
(Self-Knowledge) and others.
I take it as an expression of commitment
to the ideal of
personal evolution of consciousness,
spiritual development and individual freedom.
TRAINING IN PSYCHO-DEVELOPMENT
I try to show the transition from ‘Psycho-Therapy’
as the major application of new psychology.
I see my work in the development and
practical training of Methodical Empathy
as a contribution towards
the unfolding future civilization
of sisterhood and brotherhood with each other
and with nature.
If you can See yourself – You can See the World
If you can Hear yourself – you can Hear others
If you can Know yourself – you can Know
In as much as you can Heal, Transform, Develop, Educate,
Manage & Lead yourself –
you can help others to do the same.
