The Healing method that Mrs Denise Kos practice, was created by the Irish Bob Moore in the 70s. It is based on energy movement work, breathing and conscious meditation practice with positive effects on relaxation, stress reduction and energy strengthening. This technique is aimed at anyone interested in personal development. Healing is practiced individually or in groups. No specific equipment or clothing is required. The method is practiced sitting on a chair. Even in groups, everyone works individually. The relaxing and energizing effects are immediate. Each participant performs the exercises, meditations and visualizations at his own pace. However, group work amplifies the power and possibilities for change and transformation of each individual. Meditation in a group, for example, is one of the most powerful ways to change consciousness.

About the teacher, Denise Kos

About the speaker, Denise Kos: Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Mrs Kos has lived in Switzerland for 18 years. An architect by training, she holds a master’s degree in finance and more than 25 years of experience in the banking sector. Passionate about human nature, motivation, sensitivity and behaviour, she began dedicating herself to Healing in 2000. She then felt the importance of listening to the body and paying attention to the signals it communicates. Since 2006, she has trained with Logos Centro in Brazil and Europe to practice Healing not only for herself but also for others. http://www.healingforlife.ch About the organizer: Nassiba Cherif. After an intense career in banking and teaching and a burn-out, I became aware of the importance of taking care of health, since I devote part of my time to helping people to become aware of the importance of health to have a better quality of life. To do this, I work with a network of health and nutrition professionals. http://www.aloetis.com

Is it possible that despite its rapid spread, it is causing cancer? ‘Thank You For Calling’ is looking for serious and scientific evidence of potential health risks and why this research has not arrived in public perception directly. Based on facts, insiders and protagonists, the film reconstructs a large-scale concealment tactic of the mobile communications industry. Do you have a cell phone? Yes?

About the teacher, Petra Diane

En plus de l’enseignement de yoga. Ma spécialité aujourd’hui est yoga nidra qui est la forme la plus simple de la méditation restauratrice. Le yoga nidra n’est ni une technique, ni une pratique…. Le yoga nidra n’est pas une simple pratique mais plutôt une forme de conscience, non pas une technique mais un processus pour entrer dans un état de conscience modifié. Yoga nidra signifie littérairement « le sommeil qui est yoga ». Dans les faits, il ne s’agit pas véritablement de sommeil à proprement parlé mais d’un éveil. Le yoga a pour but la pacification du mental. Son enseignement fut originalement pratiqué pour améliorer la santé physique et vider l’esprit afin de préparer à la méditation dans la recherche de l’éveil. La seule technique utilisée en yoga nidra est celle de visualisation en relaxation profonde très similaire au sommeil lent léger. Cette méthode de relaxation apporte souvent des bénéfices dès la première séance. Pratiqué en position allongée, il permet un lâcher prise autrement, voir plus facilement que la méditation classique.
