El Abrazo del Ángel Comunidad

Accompanying you to discover your Self

Gestalt Therapy, Enneagram, Psychodrama, NLP and Bioenergetics

Let us tell you a story, a vision, a mission.

History and vision

El Abrazo del Ángel Comunidad was founded by Juan Antonio de la Cruz Martin in 2012 as a result of his life experiences. Having the intuition that there was another life waiting for him since childhood, he became a seeker. After more than 30 years of philosophical, spiritual, esoteric and psychological investigation about himself and life, he ended up in this place driven by a vision of a community project. He trusted his intuition which resulted in Self realization. The project was to be grounded in a call of unveiling the Mystery of Existence.

Although this project has no dogma, the core point of view can be described as follows:

  • The search for Truth and Self discovery through experiential and philosophical self-inquiry
  • Honest and open discussion of the ways and means for accomplishing this among fellow seekers

 

Mission

Our interest in El Abrazo del Ángel Comunidad is to provide a safe space for seekers after Truth to explore the hero’s journey with others, expedited by mentors. People can work together to discover a true understanding of their Selves in a non-dogmatic environment.

We are committed in contributing to an individual and collective development of consciousness, which in our understanding, leads to a more authentic and comprehensive sense of living.

In our theatre we offer conditions for confrontational experiences to support insights.

Eventually, our mission is to unveil the Mystery of Existence on Earth through individual Self design realization in collectiveness.

Gestalt therapy is an existential and experiential form of psychotherapy which emphasizes personal responsability and focuses upon the individual’s experience in the present moment. Additionally, it considers the therapist–client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person’s life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation.

Gestalt therapy was developed by Fritz Perls, Laura Perls and Paul Goodman in the 1940s and 1950s, and was first described in the 1951 book Gestalt Therapy.

This therapy focuses on process (what is actually happening) over content (what is being talked about). The emphasis is on what is being done, thought and felt at the present moment (the phenomenality of both client and therapist), rather than on what was, might be, could be, or should have been.

Gestalt therapy is a method of awareness (or “mindfulness” as it is called in other clinical domains) practice. Perceiving, feeling, and acting are understood to be conducive to interpreting, explaining, and conceptualizing. This distinction between direct experience versus indirect or secondary interpretation is developed in the process of therapy. The client learns to become aware of what he or she is doing and that triggers the ability to risk a shift or change.

The Enneagram is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of personality styles or “enneatypes”. The nine types are represented by the points of a geometric figure which indicate connections between them. Although the origins and history of many of the ideas and theories associated with the Enneagram are a matter of dispute, contemporary Enneagram of Personality claims are principally derived from the teachings of Oscar Ichazo and Claudio Naranjo, both partly influenced by some earlier teachings of George Gurdjieff and his legacy “The Fourth Way”.

There are different schools of thought among Enneagram teachers, therefore their ideas are not always in agreement and here we understand the Enneagram as an ancient piece of wisdom which aims to explain the cosmologý and cosmogony of the human being universe in its design.

Psychodrama is an action method used as a form of psychotherapy, in which clients use spontaneous dramatization, role playing, and dramatic self-presentation to investigate and gain insight into their lives. Developed by Jacob L. Moreno, psychodrama includes elements of theater, often conducted on a stage or a space that serves as a stage area, where props can be used. Psychodrama therapy reenacts real-life past situations (or inner mental processes), acting them out in present time, to provide participants with the opportunity to evaluate and reflect their behavior and more deeply understand themselves.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development and psychotherapy, created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California in the1970s. NLP’s creators claim there is a connection between neurological processes (neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming) and that these can be changed to free from repetition and open up to new opportunities.

Impressions of the Project

EADA Founder and Mentor for

Self discovery

I define myself as a mentor in accompanying people throughout the process and path of Self Discovery, which I have walked myself and know quite in detail to a certain extend.
30 years of self research/studies and experiences in psychological, philosophical, spiritual, religious and esoteric traditions, as well as modern knowledge on the mystery of human existence and its quantum physics, root me in mySelf.
I remain accompanying my clients until they feel ready to walk on their own and beyond if they feel like remaining in community.
