Femina Magna

Integral Women Empowerment

Course description

FEMINA MAGNA © is a workshop for women promoting the conscious, integral development of the body, heart, mind, and spirit in harmony with oneself, culture and nature.The concept of integral development assumes that we can achieve optimal results only when we take care of development in all the most important human dimensions.

We are looking forward to support you on your way of becoming a beautiful and healthy woman surrounded by love and respect, who is wise, active, developing professionally in the chosen direction and fulfils herself in life by following her own path.

Methodology

In the form of classic workshops with the help of conversational methods – we choose an integral path to ourselves, the path of Femina Magny ©

We use both Ken Wilber’s integral theory and his AQAL model, which introduces order into our experience and allows us to better track the direction of changes and effectively with them direct.

As well as the latest research in psychology, neurobiology, phenomenology, hermeneutics, cultural studies, ethnology and spirituality.

Benefits

The itinerary of our journey together can be described in three points, which to start with is entirely up to you:

    • Create a vision of yourself and your life based on love, joy, well-being and health, and then consistently and boldly pursue it.
    • Learn the ability to live your life happily and positively in every moment.
    • Love and accept yourself as you are, take full responsibility for your life and your fate and do not expect anything from others.

Programme

The programme is flexible and will be tailored to the experience and requirements of the participants.  Each day is dedicated to one of the 4 basic dimensions through which we experience the world:

The first day is devoted to getting to know each other and defining our own needs that we want to work on.

  • Opening and introduction
  • Opening Rounds
  • Getting to know each other
  • Expectations Round
  • Setting up the Agenda
  • Formulations and presentations

 

Local Evening – welcome reception

We work together on the first perspective of perceiving subjectively perceived reality: I-space. Are we analyzing phenomena, phenomena that appear in our space of consciousness?

We learn to observe our thoughts, concepts, energy, body, and learn about the contents of our JA-space, which are often pushed into the shadows and projected onto others.

  • Check in Opening Round
  • Warming Up Exercises
  • Plenary session – Sharing and processing round
  • Cultivating a generative approach – Workouts
  • Formulation of working groups and Journaling

We work on the second perspective of objectively perceived reality. Do I know what my body says about me?
How I encode and process information so that it effectively reaches the recipient. Man is himself a constantly evolving system do you know your “biological software”?

  • Morning Check in Opening Round
  • Flow movement exercises
  • Sharing and processing round for the whole group
  • Practicing ‘Appreciative Conversations’- Workouts
  • Developmental model I ( Ken Wilber & Robert Kegan)
  • Workouts II
  • Processing round for the whole group
  • Sharing

We work on the third perspective of perceiving the collective reality from the inside: MY-space. This internal perspective of community (marriage, family, professional group or community …) works unconsciously in our relationship with others and has a huge impact on our communication. Here it is important to know, among others displaced family problems or traumatic history of one’s own country.

Are you aware of these phenomena? What we believe to be good and appropriate is culturally conditioned and depends on our level of development and awareness.

Do I know these collective values? During the dialogue, do I feel connected, unity with the other person? If so why?

  • Morning Check in Opening Round
  • Mindfulness Exercises
  • Fishbowl process
  • Circling & Flow process

We work on the fourth perspective of perceiving reality analyses the external behaviour of the system as a whole. In order to understand the system, society, company or our own family, we must understand their structure and logic of operation. Both the internal and external logic of a system have a strong influence on us and our operation in this system.

What is taboo in the system and what can be passed on? Why these and not other values lie at the basis of our actions. What is the structure of the system? Am I aware of this?

We will invest the last day of the workshop on the integration of knowledge and experience and evaluation. We will create an action plan for the future in the form of a personal integral life plan that will help you to consistently implement new methods of action and ways of thinking.
