Over dit evenement


“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are” - Brené Brown

What would happen if you let go of who you think you should be? Or embrace the parts of yourself that are not always welcome?

Let’s find out together.

In this workshop, we will focus on discovering and embracing our authentic selves. Through different exercises that promote curiosity, compassion and mindfulness, we will turn inward and get to know ourselves on a deeper level. We will uncover the different parts that make up our inner selves and acknowledge the unique role that each part plays for us (even the parts that we or others may dislike). Finally, we will explore how we can integrate all these parts into a harmonious whole.

This 4-hour workshop is the first in a two-part series on authenticity. You can attend one or both workshops. While each workshop is designed to stand alone and provide a valuable experience, attending both will provide you with a richer and more rounded exploration of the topic.

Our workshops are designed in a heartfelt way that helps participants come to profound insights about themselves and connect meaningfully with others. We provide a safe space where we experiment and learn from and with each other through different experiential activities, such as guided individual practices, group experiments, creative exercises, and pair work.

A space where you can come as you are and…
• Create new experiences alongside people who acknowledge and support you.
• Embrace your creative and curious sides.
• Have fun! Discover how depth and playfulness can not only co-exist but also enhance each other.
• Cultivate skills that will allow you to understand and express your true self.
• Become part of a community of like-minded and like-hearted people.

Hello! We are Kim and Ania, two curious minds passionate about fostering genuine connections. We believe that magic happens when we can engage authentically, explore curiously and savour experiences fully. As lifelong learners, we continually seek new ways to explore ourselves, others and the world around us and we are excited to co-create a space with other people who want to join us.

We are both Gestalt therapists in training and we have experience supporting a diverse range of people across different contexts. For more info about us, check out our profile: https://hipsy.nl/contact-on

Workshop - Engaging authentically and meaningfully with the world

Honestly, it's hard to put into words what these workshops do. With a smile from ear to ear, a sense of awe, and a sense of contentment, I left feeling like I was floating in the air. That's kind of magic!

Workshop - Engaging authentically and meaningfully with the world

It was an incredibly deep and tender experience of sensing and finding myself in contact with the outside world and other people. I highly recommend it if you are on your way of self-discovery
