Interview with Claudio Naranjo
“Music can be a way into oneself, a mirror to what we deeply feel; or it can be a substitute to fill a feeling of emptiness and avoid deeper issues and connecting with life.…
I think, music has an eternal value, similar to mathematics, it has something intrinsically good…"

SAT IV - Presence and Transformation
The main focus of this workshop will be meditative exercises integrating the Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana practices already practiced during modules I–III. Course participants will be guided to consider and reflect upon their inner journey in order to help them understand and actively live their own psycho-spiritual transformation process. Working with the Enneagram will strengthen their virtues.
In addition, Claudio Naranjo and his Team will be available for any questions concerning every individual's future evolution.
This year, as a special, Claudio Naranjo will take up the potential of classical music for the development of consciousness and transformation and present musical dictates of his German-born teacher Totila Albert.
An advanced form of Authentic Movement will deepend the process, and the work in small groups with a long-time companion of Claudio Naranjo, who has exceptional perceptive abilities that will reveal exciting connections in the life of each participant.

The Enneagram of Personality
Introduction to the psychology of Enneatypes and the SAT Programme
The goal of this theoretical and experience-oriented workshop is to become acquainted with Dr. Claudio Naranjo’s teaching of the Enneagram. The psychological schemata of the Enneatypes allows us to explore our true self hidden behind our everyday masks, and places a useful tool in our hands with which we can discover the pivotal point of our „automated self“.
In this seminar we work with and explore these nine basic character types on the emotional, cognitive and physical levels. Through guided exercises we discover step by step our own character type, with its dominant feelings and thought structures, that steers us more or less subtly through life. Physical and movement exercises attentively support a discerning perception of one’s own personal character structures and release spontaneity and liveliness. For to encounter our essential self is to become conscious of our physical body and to learn to live anew within it.
The workshop is suitable for persons who wish to participate in the SAT programme and want to learn beforehand the basic fundamentals of the Enneagram.

Information and registration:
This workshop is specifically focused on the physical and symbolic dimensions of birth. It allows us to explore the first moments of life on the edges of mystery, treat perinatal wounds and cultivate an acute sensibility that gives sense and centre to our Being.
Birth is our first experience of transformation. It is gateway to the Great Adventure of Life!
How did we experience this transition?
Was it marked by trust and gentleness or on the contrary, by fear and confusion?
What about our future experiences of changes?
Mother’s womb is our first home. In this space of complete fusion and for nine months we share her emotions and circumstances. Our life adventure begins with her, in her! Indeed, she gives us a foretaste of the world that awaits us.
What has the flavour been?
In what atmosphere are the first links between the child, the mother and the father forged?
The first breath is opening towards autonomy and all the world has to offer.
How was this first movement? How does it shape us us?
What is our respiratory plasticity like today?
These milestones are often accompanied by possible traumas that, although unspoken, are deeply embedded in our cellular memory. It is by inhabiting the body with gentleness and kindness that we can free ourselves from them and so reconnect with our body’s wisdom and self-regulatory capacity.
This workshop is also an opportunity to give birth to a new inner family constellation that allows us to become aware of the sense of motherhood and fatherhood and to repair the loving movements interrupted with our origins.
This work is aimed at those who wish to leap with confidence and curiosity into the great waters of life and who aspire to be Born for Being.
Cherif Chalakani works on perinatal experiences by gently integrating emotional and physical self-regulation around the breath, movement and awareness. His approach offers both healing and transpersonal awakening.
He has been facilitating this workshop for over twenty years as part of the SAT led by Claudio Naranjo and in different Gestalt, systemic therapy and body oriented institutes in Latin America and Europe.
He will be joined by Katrin Reuter.

“From this process of birth I have gained the experience of trusting in order to undergo life transformations. An experience that goes beyond the present moment and settles over time, like a memory that I can recall in other situations” (Monika, Mind-Body Therapist)
“Moving from our biological birth to the birth of the heart. Becoming Men, women of love. Becoming love of oneself, of life, of others” (Jean Marie, Writer)

Formation : « The Way of the Clown »
Good for nothing, but ready for anything, the clown is anchored in our hearts as a figure close to childhood that brings to our adult lives a fresh outlook, extremely direct and simple.
By bringing it to the stage we learn to just be there facing the world, at once brilliant and useless, and to receive the audience’s witnessing as a bridge that encourages us to cross into the unknown.
In a space where “I and play” pass the buck, where “child and adult” reconcile themselves with confidence and transparency, we reveal our limitations, our failures, our confusions, our wanderings, and more importantly, our desires to live and to offer who and what we are to the world.
This training, original in its intensive method, takes up the themes dear to Alain that punctuate the ways of the Clown:
Protected by this little red mask, participants will learn and celebrate the different rules of the game the Clown has to offer: availability, fun, imagination, spontaneity, expression, play, contact, etc.
The work proposal will include:
games, performance and contact dynamics
initiation with “the self on stage”
becoming aware of the inner child
the rules of the Clown
listening to one’s body, one’s feelings and one’s imagination
listening to others and to the group
listening to music and silences
opening up and sharing ... Sharing and opening up!
learning to be transparent and simply reveal one’s essence
Alain Vigneau is a clown and theatre director. He was born in France and has been living in Spain since 1989, where he directs the theatre "La Stravagante", and where has worked with the international organisation "Clowns without Borders". For several years, he has been teaching training courses in art therapy and drama therapy, and leading workshops in South America and Europe that combine clown and psychotherapy ("Clown essencial"). Many people, during the SAT Programme workshops have met him and gained insight into his exceptional work that is enjoyed and valued by all. He is, internationally, one of the major representatives of the theatrical work created in collaboration with Claudio Naranjo within the SAT Programme.

“Working with Alain is to stand facing the void, daring to do a double somersault knowing that his tenderness and sensitivity are there to receive us!”
“Alain is an artist who composes masterpieces of hope with the broken pencils of our troubled stories”
“The clown blew on the almost dying embers of a distant creative path. Thanks to its imprint, deep inside, my heart laughs at very high decibels, while on the outside, I breathe more calmly in everyday life”
“The meeting with Alain has allowed us to discover ourselves in the midst of others, and to face ourselves being amongst and with the world, the implacable reality of our childhoods, our anguish, our fears...
The clown link is good for us, so share it with your neighbors, friends and families; it is a long path, so courage to all, and enjoy those much needed moments spent together, a clown friend!”
Ludovic, rural policeman
“Thank you to all your little red noses for your smiles, your tears, your humanity”
"Getting in touch with our child power and send packing our fears, our image, whatever we hold onto.
Getting in touch with our emotions, our childhood experiences, the soft ones and the hard ones, and receiving them, welcoming them, recognising them. Having fun, crying, laughing together, love ourselves in our infinite diversity and in our unity”
“Thank you for these memorable moments, the hearty laughter and the tears expressed or contained... I feel alive, happy to have reconnected with one of my childhood dreams, grateful to have had so much fun with you”
Marie Claire, therapist and coach
“What a wonderful bubble of humanism this clown weekend…”
Meditation unter Frauen
Der Raum der Stille
«Eine weibliche Begegnung mit dem Zen»
Meditationsretreat mit Anik Senka Billard
Sich unter Frauen zusammenfinden und von einer Zen Meisterin, Gestalttherapeutin und Expertin in Frauenarbeit geleitet, verschiedene Formen der Innwendung erforschen - sowohl in der Stille wie im Ausdruck. Vielen ist Anik aus dem SAT II bekannt, bei dem sie regelmäßig mitwirkt.
Ein Retreat, auf das wir uns besonders freuen!
„Im Kreis von Frauen werden wir verschiedene Formen der Meditation erfahren: Sitz- und Gehmeditation sowie Meditation in Bewegung. Wir werden von der aufrechten, vertikalen Achse ins Fließen und Loslassen wechseln. Indem wir unserem Körper erlauben, sich inspiriert zu bewegen, verbinden wir uns neu mit unserer weiblichen Essenz. Wir werden uns im bewussten, achtsamen Kontakt üben und wie wir ihn schenken und erhalten können. Worte lassen wir aus der Stille entstehen, Tanz aus dem Raum und der Weite und das für uns Wesentliche aus dem Moment...“

Review: Retreat 2016
September 21st to 25th 2016 - Bad Meinberg near Hannover, Germany
"Silence, music, surrender and inquiring into the nature of the mind"
Silence is understood as synonymous with peace and quiet in Buddhist practice, and "surrender" in Claudio Naranjo’s vision, is referring to a physical practice of releasing spontaneous expression. During the retreat, these two approaches, closely interconnected through meditation and authentic movement, were be complemented by the Buddhist teaching of Dzogchen to explore the fundamental nature of the mind.
He was accompanied by:
Betina Waissman, international expert in authentic movement, and
Alejandro Torrealba, former Vipassana Buddhist monk and a student for many years of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche of the Bön tradition.
Those books accompany the event:
Die Geburt aus dem Ich (only available in German)
Tótila Alberts Epos „Die Geburt aus dem Ich“
in 5 volumes - from Claudio Naranjo and Sebastian Elsässer, published in 2015
