I would like to improve my overall well-being and quality of life.
Do you want to transform your high sensitivity and everyday stress? Would you like to suffer less from these experiences and learn ways to cope better and further develop yourself within this complex world?
In the Activity-Based Stress Release (ABSR) courses you will reduce your everyday stress and exhaustion. You will learn about the various forms of nervousness, such as forgetfulness and indecision, and learn exercises that address these phenomena in everyday life.
The High Sensitivity as Potential (HSP) courses will help you to accept and affirm your experiences of high sensitivity, which can be frustrating and painful. You will learn exercises that help make your sensitivities manageable for you. These courses support you in growing energetic roots which will strengthen your life forces overall.
In all of these courses, mental exercises, everyday practices and movement exercises are offered to complement each other perfectly. We have received numerous enthusiastic testimonials about these courses. In addition, research conducted with the University of Bern and the Perseus Research Organization confirms the effectiveness of the ABSR courses. The research has shown that participants with and without prior knowledge of anthroposophy or eurythmy achieved an equal improvement in their overall well-being.
