Gabriel Figini


The Mind is not in the Body,

The Body is in the Mind


(Based on principles of Chi kung,

Bioenergetics and Sacred Geometry)




What is Training A?


Human-Potential is bringing  Gabriel Figini's “Training A”  for the first time to Europe. A training that intends to explore Self and the possibility to express it in a coherent way through Feeling, Thought an Action.  He invites us, through meditation, music, partner work and geometric dances, to look behind the curtains where movement, the passion that makes you move, takes place .This passion is wherever your heart is, be it dance, theater, music, martial arts, sports, relationships, business, etc.

Have you thought about how coherent is your Self behind those actions?

Who might be interested?


The Seminar is aimed at those interested in learning and improving themselves. 


The goal is to rediscover the coherence between thought, feeling

and action. 


Do you fall in any of the below descriptions?:


  • Are you working with your Body, Heart/Mind and/or  Soul in any way?
  • Are you looking for something to trigger the feeling of integration and to be in Oneness within your Self and without?
  • Are you tired of experiencing separation, lonelyness, anxiety, stress and drepession in your life? 
  • Are you helping other people with the issues mentioned above?
  • Are you looking for new ways to inspire yourself?
  • Are you an Artist looking for deeper ways of expression?
  • Are you a Martial Artist or in Sports, and your Body is your work instrument?
  • Are you a Business Manager?

    Then I have a special consideration for you:

    Living in a world where hard skills are highly needed, it is very easy to overlook soft skills that can make a difference in your business.  Soft skills are related to how good we understand our human nature and with how much congruence we are able to express it, so that others can relate more easily to us and in doing so, improve our impact through our communication skills.

    Coming from inside out is a very much used cliche, but now people are appreciating more and more authenticity in our interactions, and contents.  Why don't we begin to look into our own substance and see how our perception of it can make a difference in everything else we do?

    If you are curious to explore this aspect of life, you are welcome to join us on the Saturday 20tth October in Hilversum.


    This Seminar might give you more insight to enrich your knowledge and confidence in your Self.


    Who has inspired this knowlegde?




    Let's contemplate this:


    What is the common belief about the body?


    That the body is a portion of matter subjected to a series of physical laws, and that is connected to the psyche through the brain and the nervous system. But also the shape of the body and the brain, their morphology and physiology, are the result of the mind, its patterns and dynamics.


    Every mind is a whole and all the minds are just one mind, so the belief that a part of it is physical, and not mental, is a fragmented interpretation.

    If the body is brought under the purpose of the mind, it becomes a whole.


    Unity brings peace, fragmentation produces tension.

    Health is therefore nothing but united purpose.

    So the best use you can make of your body is as an instrument to expand perception till you reach the vision that the physical eye cannot embrace.

    Learning to do this is the only real use of the body.


    "Man has no Body distinct from his Soul, for that called Body is a portion of Soul discerned by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age."


    William Blake
