Diana Gavajuc

Lecturer Presentation (Red Section): Diana Gavajuc, MA, Psychologist at PREMED Clinic, ISTT Member (also studied: Economy, Marketing MA).
At 41 years of age I’ve learned that when you find tour own anchors and learn how to use them, the stress-provoked chaos can turn into internal harmony. My anchors are my relationship with God and the one I have my husband and our 3 children. In my professional career I had the opportunity to test my resistance, my abilities and my convictions, working for big companies, in the marketing section, for 10 years. My passion for research guided me toward psychology and for the last 8 years I have been learning and sharing the conditions for healing and its joy. I enthusiastically practice co-creation dialogue, discovering every person’s potential for change (including my own) in a therapeutic environment.

Theme Presentation: The failure in yesterday’s mirror…
You wake up in the morning and look in the mirror. What do you see? Research and experience have taught us that it’s not just your face that you see there. Maybe you’re surprised by your internal monologue over your negative feeling or their denial. It seems that we all have a door to our soul that states “Access Denied”. What lies beyond that door? Maybe there is a cave of your yesterday’s failure that is now haunted by fear, helplessness and shame.
Maybe today you find a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but can’t decide if you want to fully invest in what you see in the mirror. Your main purpose for now might be only surviving. But we found that “if you want to walk on water, you have to step out of the boat”. The boat may offer us the safety we’re used to, but it doesn’t allow us to fly, to run, nor to walk. What is your boat?  The hidden cave inside your soul will tell you. Studies will confirm ir. We are human and we are vulnerable. But if you want to pass the restricted are of your heart, I’m inviting you to a meditation about how to face your vulnerability and to find the resources you need to feel well about the reflection in the mirror, starting NOW!
