Dear friend of Arkadia,

Warm regards,


A Talk With the Unconscious: Continuing The Journey to Become Your True Self by Marc Siles & Ruth Franco 

Our thoughts are interconnected to our future, create our reality. From 60.000 to 70.000 of those thoughts we think in one day(1), 90% are the same thoughts as the previous days, and are located in the unconscious level. We become a set of memorised behaviours, unconscious habits, automatic emotional reactions.  In other words, the world we experience is a reflection of our inner thoughts, perceptions, feelings, values and beliefs. It’s  reflection of what’s going on deep in our unconscious mind; like a move projector reflects the film on the screen. Would you like to become the director of your own film? 

After receiving many requests after last years session, Marc and Ruth will be holding a follow up session. This time we’ll explore the skill of psychological flexibility. During recent years, research has shown that this skill is a fundamental aspect of mental health and wellbeing. The concept has been defined as “the ability to contact the present moment more fully as a conscious human being, and to change or persist in behavior when doing so serves valued ends”. This means that developing those skills that will allow you to be more in touch with yourself and commit to your values, will facilitate your path to reach your full potential and achieve your aims. During this session we’ll explore some basics on this dimension and experience few tools in order to develop committed action.
