At the Being Gathering 2017, Mirko Betz will be sharing a talk on Spiritual Practice for Everyday Life.
Mirko was born in Germany. In 1999, he moved to Los Angeles to work in Hollywood as a screenwriter. In 2010 he gave up all personal possessions, and lives a Semi Nomadic Lifestyle since. He stayed in a Zen Monastery for 6 months and practiced with a 90 year old Zen Buddhist Master in Germany, after which he embarked on the sacred journey to Santiago de Compostela.
Working with Abuelita Ayahuasca in Mexico for 4 years prior, he fully devoted himself to his Shamanic initiation work. Based on his own personal Healing & Awakening process, Mirko now offers his unique mixture of practical and simple healing methods, serving people to finally implement their beautiful dreams in everyday life. Mirko is not a shaman, healer, teacher or guru in the traditional sense of the word, he simply shares passionately what he has to still learn and master himself.
Spiritual Practice for Everyday Life
For years we may have read all these inspirational books, attended seminars, traveled India, joined ashrams, followed gurus, and applied the rituals, just to find that once we get home, all our stressful thoughts are still there. Yeah it is easy to be spiritual, calm and “enlightened” when we are in our “Bubble”! But when we visit our parents, we quickly turn into something else.
With Nonviolent Communication we finally heal our communication and learn to express all our needs without force, fear, accusations, or any type of judgement, instead we learn how to communicate peacefully, lovingly and powerfully. And with Byron Katie’s The Work we learn 4 simple and practical questions to free ourselves from all our negative thoughts that cause all the self-created drama and stress in our life.
