VISION QUEST FOR RECONNECTION WITH OUR PERSONAL GIFTS
With this quest we will be diving on to our collective subconscious mind to observe what are our inner attributes and gifts that were presented to us from the beginning of times so that we could be agents of personal and collective positive change.
There will be a focus on listening to our inner voice and the "sacred word of power" that anyone can express on any moment on any space and any time, this skill of manifesting our wisdom as creators of new realities will be integrated in a way that participants will be able to take it anywhere they go on their future trips
The activation of our inner child is the key for a deeper connection with our personal needs and the needs of others around us and of the planet.
Helder Valente has dedicated his life to support others develop their inner power, by using empowering dynamic exercises were people interact with each other to discover the answers for a new world were we can live in harmony with mother earth and with other human beings and preserving the planet for the future generations.
Already as a child he began observing the phenomenon of patterns in nature and the way elements relate and interact,. Being son of two portuguese grandmothers that practiced chamanism, his connection with the language of nature and the voice of spirits was present at a very early age.
The quest for a deeper connection with the ecological and social landscapes made him become a international permaculture expert and a leading facilitator on social permaculture and sociocracy, tools that he used to solve situations of violent communication, conflict resolution and decision making challenges in companies, NGOs, and indigenous communities.
Helder creates an intensive social interdependent network of ideas and creativity diving on to our collective subconscious mind to observe what are our inner attributes and gifts , so that we can become agents of personal and collective positive change.
This change of perspective made him learn with various healers, shamans and curanderos of several indigenous groups what is to be a spiritual being, his conclusions became very simple, We are all connected and we are all ONE.
