Pratibimba

The Sanskrit word Pratibimba means ‘reflection’. In human life this reflection of ourselves is often not a mirror image, but is instead coloured with our own experiences and perceptions. With the help of the supportive other, we can connect with our own ‘self’ with greater clarity. Pratibimba therefore stands out as the process of exploring and learning about the Self in the light of our own selves.

Understanding the Self is a journey where we learn to make a relationship with our own personal life journey. This relationship goes a long way in living a life that appreciates wholeness. Pratibimba is your opportunity to work on life challenges by learning and integrating the skills of embodied reflection processes.

In this 12-session journey held weekly (1-hour each), you will individually explore aspects of your own life that you wish to work upon. Utilising your current issues as the base, we begin the journey of sustained reflections and experiential explorations.
