“ Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it. ”
Djalal ûd Din Rûmî
Aya Annika Skattum proposes the individual guidance. As a transpersonal therapist, art and dance therapist and whirling dervish, she is enriched by 20 years professional experience both leading groups and individuals, by travelling the world, by attending pilgrimages, retreats and trainings, and by her long-term association with a Fawzia Al Rawi, a female Sufi teacher. Of Norwegian origin, I grew up in Africa and have lived more than 20 years in France
When life presents its’ inevitable challenges, we may feel overwhelmed by emotions or physical symptoms. Perhaps we feel immobilized or life has lost meaning and direction. Then it is time to listen to the soul.
When we go through a difficult time, when we are facing hardships, when we feel stalemated, when we have lost a loved one, the meaning of life or the direction to take, when we are overwhelmed by emotions or physical symptoms, it’s time to listen to the soul.
Our ego will resist this quest for truth and find all kinds of excuses for not going there. That is why it’s useful to have a fellow traveler, who has come a long way, who stands back, who listens with her heart and who is not afraid of the dark passages of the being.
Aya Annika can be this fellow traveller, accompanying you toward the revelation of your soul.
She offers a complete guidance for the body, mind, heart and soul.
Through empathic listening, healing touch, conscious breathing and guided meditation and movement, she helps you to put words to your experience, to breathe consciously, untie knots, release emotions, express your truth, learn to love yourself, transform your relationships and come to know yourself more and more.
She offers guidance but not care taking. The guided person must take responsibility and be independent outside the sessions.
Her guidance is based on her personal journey: at once spiritual, therapeutic and artistic. It comes from the heart and feels both gentle and firm. She listens and holds up a benevolent mirror for you to learn to know and to love yourself.
Free will being our ally, she does not impose anything. She puts you before your thirst for love and your quest for truth, powerful inner engines to go beyond the ideal and unattainable image of ourselves, created by conditioning and social pressure. For the thirst for love is quenched by the ability to love ourselves and the quest for truth through our courage to be true.
