When I was 16 years old I first read the work of C.G. Jung. I was immediately fascinated by his way of thinking about healing, growth and spirituality. Jung combined insights from eastern and other non-western cultures with the latest insights about psycho-analysis. In this way a complete therapeutic method was created in which conscious and unconscious processes were analysed in order to focus on self-realization and achieving your ‘true self’. Beautiful!
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes”. C.G. Jung
In therapy you learn to look inside. You meet your shadow, you meet old pain. You get to know yourself to the depths of your soul. You learn to live in accordance to who you really are inside. This is becoming aware.
For a psychoanalytical therapist it is important to walk the path of awareness and healing yourself. I started to study developmental and educational psychology and later engaged in Jungian learning analysis. I learned to analyse dreams, about creative therapy, about active imagination and most important: to look at sickness as a path of healing and growth.
In my own analysis I experienced the power of working with the subconscious. Old pain and trauma came to the surface and became conscious. I learned to make the connection between my life experiences and the problems I experienced. A beautiful path of healing that has given me deep insights and literally changed my life.
Working with energy
The ability to work with energy is in my blood. I inherited healing and clair-voyance abilities from both my grandmothers. Dona Marquesa from Peru teaches me to apply these gifts in the Inca shamanistic way of healing.
Every day I study and practice Zhineng Qigong. Time after time it brings me deeper into contact with myself, with the earth and with everything that lives. Teaching in this beautiful form I love to do. Master Yuantong Liu has learned me so much about Zhineng Qigong, the practice and how to work with group-healing.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it wants direct your life and you will call it fate. C.G. Jung
For more than 20 years I have been working with people and helping them recover from old pain, blockages and psychological problems. On Linkedin you can find an overview of my education and training and on www.ardite.org you can find my blog.
