learn about the art of spiritual counseling
A training about the essential principles of working with people from a spiritual point of view, with valuable teachings about traumatic experiences and the real meaning of love.
In this approach, the work happens from a space of inner emptiness rather than from a desire to help. When a therapist is centered, unafraid and without intention, he can become a catalytic agent that helps the client to enter a dimension beyond the mind, a space of acceptance, where problems are not solved, but dissolved.
Based on meditative presence and the spiritual understanding of inner growth, this therapeutic line seeks to help people discover something that already exists inside them. It doesn’t aim to offer a solution, but to act as a means so that people can find the answers within themselves.
“When people go to therapy, they usually think that they are going to a place to fix something, or that they will ask a question, get an answer and their problems will be solved.
That, however, is not the spiritual view of inner growth. In a spiritual sense, you change the dimension from the mind to the body. And it isn’t really about fixing, it’s about finding something that is already inside. The answer doesn’t come from the outside, because it already exists within you”.
— Svagito Liebermaister
An approach that works with the body and the nervous system, where many life traumas are stored. While the successful resolution of trauma is one of the gateways to higher consciousness, an unresolved trauma keeps us in a repetitive pattern of behavior and fixates us in the past, not allowing us to respond effectively to the present.
Often, this is the reason for difficulties in relationships with other people, whether they are family members, partners or co-workers.
This training will develop skills that can be used to identify and heal past traumas and get out of dysfunctional relationship dynamics. We will explore healthy ways of relating and the difference between reacting to the past and responding from our present state of consciousness.

The real meaning of love
Experiencing authentic love is the foundation of all healing.
However, most people have a distorted view of love, the result of conditioning or learned beliefs at some point in life. As a result, they encounter suffering not because love caused it, but because their understanding of love is incorrect.
Throughout the training we will explore the true meaning of love and how we can find this loving space within ourselves. This can be extremely beneficial not only when working with people, but in any kind of situation that involves relating.
This work is based on the understanding that relationship is not the goal of life, but a lesson to learn about the true meaning of love.
Understanding what it means to work with people.
Inner growth and personal development.
Greater presence, rooting and centering in life and relationships.
Clearer understanding of what love is.
Body-mind healing and spiritual nourishment.
Learn to support transformation in yourself and others.
The Zen way of Counseling
On a personal level, we’ll gain insights into life’s issues. On a professional level, we will learn tools that can be applied to a wide range of different sessions, always working with clients seeking to nurture their being and individuality rather than sustaining the dreams, desires and ambitions that are part of their personality.
This approach is unique in that it explicitly teaches “how to be” rather than just “what to do”.
What will be Experienced
The training includes structured and guided meditations, demonstration and practice supervised sessions, exercises and a space for questions.
As it is a social gathering, there will also be time to enjoy all the infrastructure that Osheanic offers and to be with the group.
Furthermore, the training aims to bring spiritual nourishment so that you can connect with your heart and bring fulfillment into your life.
“The whole life … just a training for how to go back home, how to disappear. Because the moment you disappear, God appears in you. Your presence is God’s absence; your absence is God’s presence”.
