~ Understanding and healing the roots of our relationships and bonding. ~
Friday evening lecture and a weekend workshop by Kati Orosz, Hungarian clinical psychologist and perinatal psychotherapist about the psychological foundations of our attachment, bonding and relationships, its roots in our earliest experiences.
We are going on a quest together searching for answers to the following questions that are of basic importance to all of us. We recommend the topics both to women and men, parents (to-be), mental health- and birth professionals.
- How do we form our realationships?
- To whom and how do we attach?
- Where are the roots of our difficulties with relationships?
- How can we heal and prevent early birth- and bonding trauma; as adults or parents, as therapists or birth professionals?
- How can we feel more balance, joy and harmony in our relathionships?
WHEN? 13-15 March 2015

At the INTRODUCTORY TALK (Fri 20:00-22:00), followed by an open discusson, you will learn about how the basic pattern of our attachment and bonding is formed in the pre- and perinatal period of our life: in the womb, during, and after the intense process of birth.
At the WEEKEND WORKSHOP (Sat & Sun 10:00-18:00) you will have various opportunities to recognise, explore and heal own early, perinatal and birth experiences with the help of effective therapeutic tools like imagination and bodywork. The group’s two days carry many situations that help participants digest and process whatever experience emerged in them. Throughout the process everybody has the space to discover and understand as much of their related memories and feelings as they are ready to experience. Participants receive guidance regarding the expected processes and we also recommend methods for further elaboration.
Working with and understanding how our basic attachment patterns are reflected in our everyday relationships, helps to resolve our difficulties and develop further. Going through this journey may lead us to a feeling of reconnection, and enable us to live our life more free and accomplished.
The unique methodology and approach of the group has been developped throughout the past 15 years by Kati Orosz and a dedicated team of professionals, based on therapeutic work with the birth experience of adult individuals. Since the beginnings, over 600 people participated in the workshops in Hungary, Germany, Russia and Holland, and experienced its deep longterm healing impact on the mental-, emotional- and even physical levels.
