CONSCIOUS CONVERSATIONS is a Gestalt Therapy group which offers English speakers in Barcelona the safe space to get together to gain insight into ourselves and help us grow as individuals and as a group. Group work is very powerful: the energy of all its members and their unique, yet, up to some extent, comparable experiences help all us become aware of our limitations, our fears, while offering the support needed to confront them.
We will learn to actively listen and to speak from our hearts, not our minds, expressing feelings and emotions, holding the space for the others to do it too.
Respect and love are key. Respect to honor our limits and love to accept what there is. Sometimes we are so keen to change the things we don’t like about ourselves that we are in constant war inside. This only brings unease and is an enormous waste of energy. It is truly accepting the way we are that we can ultimately bring changes. However, acceptance is not always easy because most of us have been taught that we have to really work hard to change all the “negative” things in us. Becoming aware of this is an important step towards surrendering to what is and accepting ourselves with love.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Carl R. Rogers
