Journey Within: Making Sense Of Your Inner Landscape (online)

Teacher: Nicholas Burnand and Sarah Dekker
Cost: Donation
Dates: Tuesday 04 August 2020 - Tuesday 04 August 2020

nicholas burnandsarah dekkerIn many spiritual traditions, the ego is seen as singular. What if we each had multiple egos? What if it was possible to form a relationship with each of these sub-personalities? What if these multiple egos were actually willing to co-operate and collaborate? What if trying to transcend ego is the very reason that ego persists?
In this webinar we will use a combination of theory and meditation practice to explore the multiplicity of mind.

Time: 7:30-9:30pm

Nicholas Burnand was born in South Africa, and currently lives in the North of Belgium. He has travelled the world, exploring different inner transformation and communication practices. His focus as a teacher and therapist is offering workshops and retreats to support people through deeply transformative inner journeys. He combines inner parts processes (I.F.S.) and unified mindfulness with Nonviolent communication to form a powerful trio that support living more authentically and free.

Sarah Dekker grew up in Ghana, Botswana, the Netherlands, Mozambique and South Africa where she engaged with people from many different cultures and socio-economic backgrounds. She found herself looking for connection and building bridges to overcome our stories of separation and steer ourselves towards a common humanity. She studied gender and conflict studies, longing to better understand identity constructs and social hierarchies and to figure out how divides between people might be deconstructed. After university her focus shifted from the academic to the experiential and spiritual, becoming more aware of our inner world and our interconnectedness with the broader web of life. She attended many workshops and trained in various modalities. Nonviolent Communication and Dyad practice have become essential components of her daily life and constitute the most transformative tools she has encountered.
