Fabio Freddi is born and raised in Varese, Italy. He is getting his counselor degree at the Integral Transpersonal Institute of Milan. His path of inner growth brought him to work for many years with the Mexican Yok'hah Maya Nahual tradition, the Afro-Brazilian shamanism and the teachings of the Indian Master Baba Bedi: his therapeutic approach unifies these visions to wake up the personal power of self-healing. He also got a bachelor’s degree in Human Communication Sciences and he developed experience and skills in graphic design and promotion fields. He has been djing and scratching records since the age of 15: after years of dj competitions, music production and club djing, he is now leading transpersonal experiences where the bodymind work melts down with dance, music and free expression. Currently he is also working in educational and social projects for young people and adults.
Awakening the Life Force: a Transpersonal DJSET experience
We awaken the Life Force in us trough a series of ritual movements that are connected to the different vibrations of the archetypes. This starting practice is taken from the transpersonal methodology called Biotransenergetics.
           When we "enter the flow", we are ready to surrender to it and to let it be: our journey continue. The DJ will play music exploring the different qualities of the Forces of Nature that we have awaken.
           We create the conditions to shift to Oneness: the contact with other people will be filtered from words, our feet will be free from our shoes, our dancing, free expression and our state of consciousness will be modified just by the power of the field and by the connection with our True Self, because alcohol is not allowed.

Short Abstract
Colour is a silent, yet immensely powerful, universal language that communicates beyond the spoken word; it is the language of the master storytellers and story doers, and whispers stories about love from and of the heart. Colour, by its mere presence, invites the human spirit to flourish and blossom in love. When we engage with and learn to translate our own colour language through action-methods and story we open to the potential of our own innermost being, when actively and consciously step across the threshold, we embark upon our own sacred journey of the heart.

Love is the Resonance with the Flow of Life™
Integrate Your Past • Be in the Present • Shape Your Future

This flow is represented in our Pulsation of Being - from the cellular to the interstellar system. On the physiological level it is moved by the rhythm of the heart which again is influenced by our physical, emotional and mental attitudes which shape our attitudes and personalities.

To experience these energies and understand how you participated in structuring your experiences in life, Siegmar will guide you from intrauterin pre-natal and post-natal conditions, through early developmental movements to intra-personal and inter-personal perceptions, connecting you with a Unity of Being, that enables you to direct your life from your personal and social level into larger dimensions of your transpersonal existence with the Will of Your Heart™.

Free Voice Playground
  Often we seek for love through relationship, spiritual teachers, therapy, meditations, self analysis, intimacy, soulmates, deep connections and other experiences...but at the end everything is much more simple - love exists here and now, it lives in our body, in our ability to connect to this moment and open up, expanding the inner space, relaxing the body, breathing deeper and more conscious, and allowing anything that is there to be.

  In this free voice playground You are invited to play with you body, movement, breathing and most of all - with the sound of your voice, allowing anything that is there to be, to flow, to meet, to play and to be enjoyed! We will be playing consciously on our own voice instrument, naturally melting with the moment of Love here and now.

The essence of presence - Playing for life
When did we stop playing? In modern and civilized world, personality cristallizes as soon as we finish our education processes, and we become adults. And this means relying only on pre existant structures, getting out of the moment,  and forgeting that we are creators. Creators of our own life and destiny.

In this workshop, through practical exercises and experiences that come from clowning, improvisation, meditation, tantra practices and a shamanic guidance, we can re establish the lost connection with our inner child, and help to heal its wounds, in order to bring more pressence, joy and opennes to our lives and hearts.

Awakening Transpersonal Psychotherapy and Love
Awakening Transpersonal Psychotherapy assumes that we are indeed, as the Perennial Philosophy has stated many times, going through the delusion of being a personal self, living a life focused on survival and personal egotistic issues. Its task is helping people awakening to a different state and a different biographical view and changing everything about one's personal identity. It works systematically with identification, de-identification and detachment, establishing a permanent parallel between dreamwork and the work we can do on our "dreamy" state of mind and limited view during "awakened" life. In this workshop, we will work on Love from this perspective.

Channeling - Based -Psychotherapy
This workshop focuses on the  human ability to shift between the familiar, personal state of  consciousness (self)  to a joint quantum one (Self)and utilize it as means of inquiry and data collection in psychotherapy. Obtaining information using higher consciousness is known as channeling.
Along with Jung's concept of the collective unconscious, and his view of intuition as the forth mental force,  this workshop asks: Are we able to contain varied views  of our 'selves' and our reality?  Can anybody channel? 
Channeling in the service of self transformation will be discussed and experienced through personal and group activities.

The integration of transpersonal experience. Mandala and Pneuma Analysis
Pneuma Analysis aims to spread a psychotherapy based on the experience of consciousness expansion in order to tap into information and insights to bring into ordinary life. In the experience of the expansion of consciousness it leads to symbolic and archetypal worlds in which we learn and receive nourishment of light, truth, love and wisdom.
Having seen the transpersonal experience of Pneuma Breathwork a mandala is designed (from sanscrito “essence”) in which the essence of our experience is represented.
The integration is an important step in the process of Pneuma Breathwork. Using the graphic representation of the mandala the experience is crystalized leading to the phase of integration of the expansion of consciousness.

We will listen to our bodies telling our stories, and to the ways our stories are expressed and echoed in our bodies. We will listen to the words stories are made of but will focus our attention also to what maybe, in essence, nonverbal, unverbalized and even unverbalizable except perhaps in poetry.. Doing so we will explore the deep secrets or wisdom our stories may carry.

Inner-Team-Focusing® (ITF) & DeHypnosis: Shadowwork in Relationship
Nothing is so fullpacked with hopes, emotions, ideals, visions and energy as a close relation. And it also brings up to Awareness all the other qualities, which we normally don´t want to have or maybe even don´t feel very much related too: fear, anger, pain, envy, guilt, shame, loss etc. So the Relation is always a risk and a big Chance at the same time. When we see the circumstances under which archetypal or biographical conditions and personal preferences people choose one another deep Relation seems like an "miracle".

Working with the Soul
Unfortunetely in these modern times the people have forgotten about soul which is granted a mere religious conotation. The people are well unchored in the material or fascinated about Spirit, but is difficult to make a conection beetwen.
This is an invitation to speak about soul and how it is different from Higher Self, or Spirit. When we speak about Spirit, we speak about the pure energy that transcends our individuality. It is the divine spark in every one of us. When we speak about soul, we speak about our unique spark, our specificity and individuality. The soul seems to be profoundly related to the way Spirit manifests in us, here on Earth, in the matter.
In our time together we will explore the relationship we have with our soul. How do we manifest the Spirit in every day life? How we are nurturing our soul?

A Word - A Word for Your Horse, Horatio!
Let "King L'Ear and the Power of Love's healing journey continue"- stories emerge around the Fire of Life. The Holy Fool's time honoured "undressing and redressing in re-imagination - mindfulness and divinity makes for «music in the ear» (puns intended :)).  Let Hamlet, Ophelia, Julie and Romeo - whomever - choose again, to BE (instead of not to be). On a Breath of Life, on a Single Word - a dream, a body's gesture's into "one sing-song line with natural healing arts where no drugs are needed. Let defences speak - "that which is being defended has its very own words".

Short Abstract
Love•Death•Redemption - Archetypes of the Light and the Shadow in the transpersonal healing proces.
The workshop - preceded by a brief lecture with a slideshow - will lead the participants to experience some healing practices through a deep contact with the archetypes of the Light and the Shadow inspired by the Greek-Roman and Egyptian-Hindu Mythology.
Years of our therapeutic experience confirm that universal power of the Love-Death Complex was the key of this healing and redemption process. Also the shamanic practices of the Greek sacred medicine and other ancient cultures used this transpersonal work for a renewal process of self-consciousness and healing.

Short Abstract
Overcoming addiction with Bhakti - yoga of love.
Many of us feel an emptiness, a hole in the soul. We sense that something is missing and seek shelter in addiciton.
Some believe that addiction is a sacred disease, a separation from our 'Source' and word 'Yoga' means to unite with the divine. Bhakti offers one of the ways of re-connection. Many regular Bhakti practitioneers, managed to overcome addictions. Instead of running away from themselves, they started running towards the strongest of all - divine love.
But what actually is bhakti yoga and where is it's secret power lies? We will try to untangle  those questions in this practical workshop.

Love and Enlightenment: great Chance or an Illusion?
If you think that you are not in love, most likely, you are mistaken! What we call love, has uncountable quantity of shades and the names used at various times: from lust to bhakti love to a deity, from friendship to the highest synergetic connection, from romantic love to the Tantric union, from parental love to love to all mankind and care of all living beings.
Love - our greatest chance to awakening and freedom, but also and the greatest risk of an overthrows in negative emotions and slavery.

Bhakti Yoga - From human to Divine through Devotion
In Sanskrit the word “Bhakti” has several meanings but the one that it is mostly known for is “devotion”.
The word “yoga” means union. Therefore, Bhakti Yoga can easily be translated as Union (between mortal soul and transcendental existence) through Devotion.
The Yoga system can be practiced in several ways so that every person interested in spirituality can reach their higher existence. This means that one can achieve this through Karma Yoga (Yoga of action) Kryia Yoga (Yoga of purification) Jnana Yoga (Yoga of knowledge), Raja Yoga (The Royal Yoga) or Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of Devotion).
Bhakti Yoga can be practiced by anyone, anywhere as it is not a technique in itself but rather an attitude, an aspiration.

The workshop will present the basic principles in Bhakti Yoga, the history and the tenets underlying this beautiful path as well as the connections between Bhakti Yoga and the art of prayer from Christianity.
The program will include a guided meditation and a Q&A Session.

In the words of Marin Preda “If there is no love, then nothing  is.”
Love exists in so many forms and is expressed in so many ways. When this love is focused toward a higher meaning, then everything becomes elevated.

Lets elevate ourselves în unconditional love.
