What's BreakThrough all about?
BreakThrough is a system designed to free us from the habit of living life “for the sake of others.” The focus of BreakThrough I is the “inside job”: learning to understand the nature of our defenses and the control they have over us. To strive towards self-improvement is a sure-fire way of disguising the “holes” in the psyche that render life mentally and emotionally overwhelming. The goal of BreakThrough 1 is not self-improvement but the reclaiming of the split off aspects of the psyche that cause us to blame and overreact to life events, and to constantly seek external validation. To break the cycle of victim- and blame-consciousness, the BreakThrough System offers a way of exposing the deep-seated, unconscious beliefs that dictate defensive, driven behavior. The goal of BreakThrough 1 is not to disguise unhealthy beliefs with ‘healthy’ new belief systems, and BreakThrough has nothing to do with “becoming a better person.” BreakThrough 1 is a system that enables us to uncover the rigid, unconscious attitudes that distort our world view and prevent us from living life fully. The Steps system of BreakThrough sets us on the inner journey towards reclaiming what is most natural to each and every one of us – the experience of wholeness.
The focus of BreakThrough 2 is the “outside job” of learning how to interact honestly and defenselessly towards others. We explore the concept of projections; the dumping of unconscious, rejected aspects of the psyche onto others. The concept of “dharma”, or right living, is put into context by exploring the difference between defenses and boundaries and natural versus unnatural roles. The step-by-step system of BreakThrough 2 offers an in-depth exploration of paradox: the outer male/female and inner masculine/feminine principles and how our misinterpretation of them disrupts our sense of self. BreakThrough 1 is a prerequisite to this workshop. Together, these two aspects of BreakThrough bring a deeper understanding of the healing nature of self-honesty.
