      "I have the impression that it is the first time in my life

      that I go to a school where I learn what I really need for life.

      How do I live in relationship, family, raise my children, take care of the planet?

      We don't learn these things in school or anywhere else."


      "Here it becomes evident that alone you cannot find the blind spots in your own personality.
      Regardless of how courageously you investigate your inner world,

      regardless of how deeply you look into your own shadows,

      you will systematically avoid seeing key elements."

      I'm ready

    • Principles, Framework and Tools

      "At first, it looks like an ordinary training.

      But pretty soon, during the first 2 or 3 hours, you notice that something is completely different."

      Guided Group

      We are all learn

      from each other


      Empowerment happens when someone opens up and you also feel inspired to open up. The group intimacy is built by all members as we are our accountable partners.



      Value of focusing,

      Play with your attention


      Introducing discipline on focusing on what you really want. You are in control of your emotional, intellectual, physical and energetic bodies. Focus on what's alive in you so you act accordingly.


      Unlock the power of empathy Be present for others


      You are holding space for other people and their communication, acknowledging that you understand by mirroring their words. This makes people overcome resistance and feel safe. You are being heard.


      Tools to communicate


      We practice different kinds of conversations.


      We give you communication tools and you learn how to be creative with your message. Find out your emotional speaking abilities, how to express yourself deeply and with clarity.


      Distintions about feelings


      We draw the line between each form of feeling.


      We compare the outcome of the chosen behaviour. You build your intellectual and emotional vocabulary and how to be responsible for your feelings.


      Instant Feedback

      Learn fast how to Shift, Go!


      This is how you make change possible.


      Giving and receiving feedback is in the core of the activities. Based on the feedback you realise what you can change. The set up invites immediate feedback that starts the change.


      We are all united

      by our stories


      By sharing we expose patterns that emerge when you avoid responsibility. You can learn from other people stories. You are responsible for creating your story.


      Taking Responsibility

      Serve yourself, your family, your community


      We guide you to transform your attitude, and find your meaning by taking the responsibility. Create the best version of your story so it serves your motivation. You commit to grow.


      Deep Process

      Going deeper than ever

      in a safe place


      There are activities that unfold your deepest potential and help you heal the traumas. 90% of participants learn something new about themselves, something that nobody knew before, even their closest friends.



      "I never thought it would be so easy to reconnect to feelings.

      I didn't know before that we actually have only four basic feelings

      and that everything else is a mixture of these feelings.

      That was completely new and interesting to me

      and it helps me use my feelings more consciously when being with other people."

      Participated in 4 trainings ("ETB"), 10 advanced trainings ("Labs"), 5 facilitator trainings. Gave 15 ETB trainings, 1 advanced training, 1 facilitator trainings and 1 educational residency program.


      My passion and my work are to create and facilitate safe and powerful spaces where you can rediscover yourself, letting go of the usual masks and habits and experience yourself in a different way, more real, more vulnerable. Spaces where the mind can rest and you can allow yourself to feel and discover the beauty of your emotional wisdom. Spaces where your body can express, move, open itself and you can reconnect with the simplicity of life. Spaces where you can rediscover who you are, in all your contradictions and unicity.

      Joana Cruz


      I have attended 14 trainings in the last 4 years. I've organized 7 trainings in Portugal. This work helped me to take responsibility for what I want to do with my life.


      I dedicate myself to what is yet to discover about the self. Here I experience how different and knowledgeable subjects combine, giving insightful material to continue life’s owned clarity, strengthening intuition and wisdom into the future.


      This process worked for me and I have the calling be present for others in their processes too.


      I am joyfully creating spaces where people feel safe and inspired to step towards any kind of transformation, it can be physical, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, familial, you name it.

      I want to live in a world where I, my family, my community, are responsible and in control of what's happening in our life. I went through this training and it was transformational to me, so I decided to help organize the next events. I want to give you the chance to participate and it will be my pleasure to contribute to your shift.
