Vila Nova de Cerveira, PORTUGAL

This Training Retreat offers psychodrama, sociodrama and sociometry as tools to experience the Unity of Mankind and to make it visible. This Training Retreat brings to you the existential core of psychodrama and sociodrama, which is Sociatry - Awakening the Autonomous Healing Center - to help heal the World and our own lives.

Sociatry - the Healing of Society and our lives - is at the heart of sociodrama and psychodrama. During this Training Retreat you will receive practices, tools and ideas to awaken to the global realities we all share and a path forward.  You will experience the Autonomous Healing Center - the unity to humankind and all life.

You will come to know the force that separates us from this unity. You will learn the tool of Social Microscopy - which shows the organization of mankind and our unity.  These tools and information are of benefit to social workers, therapists, educators, and other professionals, to see a large global picture and a unique way to help an individual and a group at this time in human history. This Training Retreat is also of value for personal and professional growth.

Sociodrama and psychodrama will be taught as a way to access the Autonomous Healing Center, for finding meaning and active hope. This Training Retreat offers a Certificate from the Zerka T. Moreno Foundation.  The central themes of the Retreat are in the following ideas:

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."       Albert Einstein

"Moreno attributed healing to what is going on silently, mostly invisibly, in the body and deep within the self.  He termed it due to the 'autonomous healing center' within.  Awakening the autonomous healing center, the power to heal oneself, is how I see thevalue of psychodrama and all forms of therapy."     Zerka T Moreno   To Dream Again - A Memoir

"A truly therapeutic procedure cannot have less an objective than the whole of mankind.  But no adequate therapy can be prescribed as long as mankind is not a unity in some fashion and ask long as its organization remains unknown."  J.L. Moreno Who Shall Survive?

We invite you to join us.
