When helping Clients work with protectors, polarizations etc… we are working on the balance of the system which inevitably affects and touches reasons for the protectors and polarizations: The Exiles!
Exiles often carry painful emotions, beliefs or dysregulation from the past. Those events wer could not digest are held by Parts in our inner system. LEARN MORE HERE.
And one element of Exiles is that they are often longing to be seen and acknowledged. Having been split off from the rest of the system, they have been starved for attention and love from the self.

My name is Lucas Forstmeyer. I am trained in IFS, different meditation practices and body-based therapy, and I lead workshops & sessions across Europe.
My background includes studying Psychology, training with a Sufi-Teacher and co-teaching the Holistic-Bodywork.org trainings that teaches bodyworkers how to work with Developmental Trauma (amongst many other things!)

Speaking from personal experience, I can see how these tools have helped me to:
It has changed my practice and I have seen it change the practice of many people who have participated in my courses.
My biggest hope is that more humans can benefit from these wonderful tools and walk this earth with more presence, compassion and personal power.
The 7 Live Calls take place on Thursdays,
19:00 – 21:30 CET (Berlin time).
You will need to invest time and energy for this course. You cannot expect to learn these tools and reap the benefits without practicing, studying and contemplating what we are doing in this course.
So please, only get in touch with me if you know you can invest 2-5 hours each week for study and practice (not per day as some people seem to read…)
