It appears there is more need than just the conventional way of processing situations through cognition. By experiencing, one can gain awareness/insight into oneself and situations. This is experiential rather than intellectual.Intellectual training focuses on knowledge transfer through theories, while experiential training emphasizes learning through practical experience. This methodology allows you to get to know yourself and what happens in your body and mind on a deeper level. It's not just about listening and taking notes; it's about experiencing, feeling, and doing, which brings about change.

Behavioral scientist/Therapist


I really enjoyed the sessions. Shima is an experienced teacher and I was very happy with her ability to explain the purpose of the practice and provide alternatives when exercises where not fitting because of physical limitations



I was positively surprised about the session. The breathing exercises was quite intense but it felt like letting everything go. I noticed that I used a lot of energy during the session but I did feel more balanced afterwards

University teacher


Amazing session, very well-guided and prepared. Sensation after the session was amazing. Totally recommended.
