Awareness focused encounter is an inner adventure and a social experiment. Authenticity, empathy and acceptance provide the backdrop to unexpected learning and personal development. Compared to ordinary and habitual ways of living, participants are welcome to explore greater freedom of expression.
During the interactions we explore what Fritz Perls called the topdog vs. underdog dynamics. The topdog describes the part of an individual that makes demands, frequently characterised by "shoulds" and "oughts." The underdog makes excuses explaining why these demands could not be met. In the movement towards resolution and reconciliation empathy is in itself a healing agent as it confirms that all parties in a conflict are recognised, supported and accepted.
