Feedback Home-Seminar Autumn 2021 Fear, Our Mood and Our Body

…I know that words cannot fully capture the depth and width of all that happened!
In this seminar  I experienced a profound change in my relationship towards myself and the world. Ria guided us to work consciously through places and processes within that are mostly left untended, and so for that reason could be constantly creating inner conflict and fear.
By working through my body, my emotions and my essence simultaneously, all aspects of me have joined into a single sense of Self. Using the mediums of painting, writing and meditating for each process brought me swiftly and simply to the core. Fear is no longer my guide.
I am deeply grateful for Ria’s love, compassion and delicacy while helping us evolve, through putting our fears and emotions into a far bigger perspective. I feel strong, happy and equipped to navigate future moments of fear and emotional upset. I can stay more centred in my true Self and enjoy Life here on Earth! With heartfelt thanks, Sharon Loerzer

The seminar: "Fear, my moods and my body" helped me to look at old fears without fear. Through the clear and loving guidance of Ria, I was deeply with myself and was able to learn once again in depth that everything I need to be the best person I can be lies within me. I am able to draw from this divine power within me and use it in everyday life. Immediately after the seminar I was confronted with a big fear situation from the outside and was able to stay very much with myself and find my strength there, which was lost through the first shock. This showed me how well the seminar had worked and all the other work I have been allowed to do with Ria for years. Although Ria was not live with us in the seminar, her presence and power was clearly felt by me and I enjoyed being able to choose the time for it freely in my busy everyday life. . THANK YOU most sincerely dearest Ria Corinna Wagner

...The seminar made me see more clearly what my fears are and how they are connected to my moods.
Painting and the possibility to penetrate my unconscious with more consciousness support me on my way to get closer to the best version of myself. I take with me inner places/gifts that strengthen me to be well with myself in this time and to shine my light into the world. Once again, I am grateful how Ria is able to enable me to experience such deep and healing processes at home, despite the digital format.
Thank you! <3 Lukas B...

...The seminar "Fear, our moods and our body" was a profoundly insightful experience for me.
It was possible for me to look at my fears and moods and the reactions of the body from a completely different perspective, which would not have been possible for me alone. This allowed me to see the origin, their effects and my behaviour from a more neutral, non-emotional, point of view and thus understand them better. And now work on solving them and changing my behaviour. I have been able to discover very practical approaches for myself on how to implement this.
Thank you for your loving and clear guidance through this seminar and process. All my love, M.A...

...I've been reviewing all the days and looking at the pictures I've painted
Simply seen, everything has become rounder. Mostly I only see circles. What at the beginning only showed tornadoes, lightning, jagged edges and abysses now stands in happy togetherness and I also see myself in safety as a distant observer from outside. Whenever fear arises, I want to have this tool to quickly see the fear as something created and not mine and better to have my happy final image in front of my eyes.

...The seminar was very good for me. I am also glad to have this opportunity to continue working. I am still working on some things. For me it was good to have 2 days. I am grateful for the possibility to divide the time individually. Ria guides us very lovingly and deeply through the seminar "our fears, moods and our bodies". The questions she asks help us to get into a level beyond the mind where real transformation can happen. The instructions helped me to see my fears, which were known to me, more clearly and neutrally. I could see exactly their impact on my life. That alone helped me. I became more relaxed and calmer. I was able to release tensions that are difficult for me to access in everyday life. Through painting, new levels were awakened in me and solutions beyond the mind were found. Thank you very much for your great work, dear Ria.Hugs from the heart, Amina

...the week was very intense, with many lows and highs
Although there was a lot to do, I feel that it made me stronger and many things became clearer again; finding access to my fears through my body makes my perspective change. I feel that I can trust my seeing and feeling more and more. I see how all these fears affect me permanently in my mood and moodiness. I am very grateful that I have been able to see them so clearly. And also deeply grateful that I was able to transform all that I felt and saw into a force that supports and strengthens me. And that became a space in which I can recharge my batteries with peace, strength and light. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Ria! All my love, Ellen

The seminar helped me to get a structured overview of my fears so that I can work on them specifically. One realisation that it doesn't hurt to be reminded of more often is that the "reality" in my head is not reality, but an interpretation of it. I was able to find out a lot of new things about myself in the seminar and was surprised how many answers were already there, just waiting for the right question. Thank you! Lena

The seminar helped me to overcome my fear about my fears. In other words, I realised that I can only deal with and let go of my fears if I am willing to look at them. I have seen that it helps me to look at my fears consciously. It does not mean that I get rid of them all. But by recognising them, I can deal with them and avoid letting them (unconsciously) rule my life. I am very grateful for this insight, because in the past I have always tried to let go without looking at it, which rather led to repression. I would definitely recommend this seminar. Thank you very much, dear Ria!

"The seminar made the importance of the connection to the heart and thus to my inner being very concrete for me with regard to my fears. I became even more aware of how much it is a decision on my part whether I move in the personality or am in my being, and the respective consequences. I am grateful for the experiences I was allowed to have and look forward to integrating what I have learned into my further walking. Thank you, Ria, for all your love!" Shila B.

....When I compare my thoughts before the seminar with my thoughts after the seminar, I notice that I am much calmer and more balanced inside. Just to see what a difference it makes whether I am in my power or not and the effects on the root and sacral chakra was an aha experience for me. Writing down the fears and imprints showed me my own patterns again. The realisation that I am trying to control something uncontrolled is still working strongly in me. I realise that I am allowed to trust here even more. It became clear to me that listening to the files online instead of downloading them was not good because I was missing parts. Thank you very much for the exciting and insightful seminar. All, all the love, Jasmin

...For me this seminar came at exactly the right time, I was strongly guided by my fears and can now better distinguish between old fears and new ones and whether they are justified or unfounded, also how I can better deal with them I have found my centre again, gained new insights that will lead me to next (developmental) steps and I am sooo grateful to you for that!!!! Thank you for doing this work for us and with us, thank you for being here!

..Thank you very much for this seminar. I appreciate your clarity and simplicity, which always shows me that I don't have to be a mystery to myself either. The seminar opened up access to me - to my being - in an immediate way, with which I could then enter into dialogue. Feeling what my fears are, what they trigger in me, how I can meet them mindfully and absorb them into myself and thereby solve them. What needs and conditioning give rise to my fears and how can I recognise my needs, respect and nurture them, strengthen my base, intensify the connection with Patchamama. Looking closer: How are feelings of guilt related to fears? Why do I feel guilt? How do I perceive others? How does "society" perceive me?In the knowledge of our great interconnectedness, overcoming boundaries, accepting and giving love

...the timing of the seminar was just right, as some fears arose externally during this week, for which I was able to find a solution straight away through the seminar! In addition, it became clear to me again and even more clearly than before what range my actions have, even when I am only alone in my flat andcannot seeany effectsthe moment I go my way, as it feels right for me, even if others criticise me for itIt's not egoism, itgetting closer to the truth Thank you very much! Best regards...

...the seminar was made for me, the topics of body, mood and fear and their connection have occupied me for a long time, many aspects unconsciously until now. During the confrontation I became aware of many things, including how a number of fears have become like implants in my system, which has cost me strength and energy and lowered my mood. The seminar helped me to engage in the confrontation. I take pictures with me for my inner strengthening, the invitation for my true inner being to expand more and more within me. Thank you for everything, dearest Ria.

Dear Ria,
A week ago I was close to despair I went through many fears again. I realised what fear was doing in my life, how many possibilities were not used. Since today, I can hand over my current situation to the "top", full of confidence.
I can take both sides, the letting go with loss, the staying, the task that will cost strength. This way I might be able to help some people
Perhaps both are possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, dear Ria, I am no longer on the run. I am back in my heart. Thank you

Retreats Ibiza and Eifel

Dearest Ria.
Thank you from the depth of my heart for your unconditional giving/serving this weekend. Thank you for always carrying us across the waters of our lives to our true selves. (S.S. horse retreat sept.2019)

"These 5 days were a door into a whole new stage of my life. I have already participated in many valuable seminars with different teachers and approaches that have supported me on my healing and unfolding path. This retreat was the crowning glory! Very deep-seated blockages and injuries became perceptible to me and came into solution and healing, which now continues. The warm-hearted, clear, powerful and loving presence and support of Ria in all processes, the great trust in the group, the healing place in the middle of nature, the delicious, healthy and lovingly prepared food made this possible.
I was able to experience a deeply touching encounter with my brother, to experience a level of relationship that we had not been able to live until now due to unconscious patterns from our family. For the first time in my life I was able to formulate the sentence: "I love you". which was overwhelming for me. This door to a freer, more fulfilled life is now open, now it's just a matter of going further, of continuing to discover and live who I really am and what my deepest task is, for which I started on this earth.
Dear Ria: I am soooooo grateful !" (M.S.)

"As a complete non-painter, I was not initially attracted by this offer. Only shortly before the appointment did I think to myself: this is a great opportunity, because in my work with Ria I have never experienced that a non-painter had any significance for the inner work - and I took part. During these days of the retreat I lived in an atmosphere of deep love, openness and mindfulness with Ria and all the participants, which was extraordinary for me. Now that months have passed, many moments of it are still very vivid and I would not have dared to hope before to come to such a depth within myself where things have begun to unravel and I could find an inner enormous strength. In a loving simplicity, Ria helped me to overcome a deep fear with little effort, to face painful experiences that I had not been aware of my whole life and which was subsequently not only liberating, but where I came to myself, could experience myself in my original being.
This experienced unconditional love is still working in me and radiates into my environment. My thanks to you, dear Ria, is the radiation of this love!" (C.K.)

retreat 2

"The retreat with Ria in Ibiza was the most intensive inner emotional work for me and brought deep, also trauma-related misalignments in me to light. Since these misalignments had to do with my fear of groups as well as my fear of authority, I was constantly challenged, not only during the painting stages that were specially guided and intensively accompanied by Ria. She caught me, guided me, challenged me and supported me tangibly with her presence so that opening could happen, so that I could arrive more deeply within myself. The processes of the different participants supported each other and there was so much loving, helpful understanding and appreciation among each other. I am very grateful for this ground-breaking experience for me and signed up for the next retreat shortly afterwards." (F. W.)

"The five most intensive seminar days I have ever experienced, embedded in a holiday atmosphere. I came back from Ibiza liberated, cleansed from the inside and free of fear. And to this day, nothing has changed. This experience is so deep and incomparable that I wish it for everyone." (C.W. -S.)
I now know what it feels like to be happy and I wish I could bring that feeling back again and again. Connected in love, Martina

This was my third painting retreat and the one in which I was able to experience with the greatest admiration how deeply the strings are pulled here by Ria's presence and how they work into the current life, in myself and in some others with whom I noticed it more clearly. In the evenings I also had the impression that nothing happens just like that, be it who asks this one question or who moves someone to dance etc. I trust all of you and that is what I am doing. I trust you all and that is a huge gift for me. I am looking forward to seeing you again (perhaps at the next retreat at Pentecost) and thank you all from the bottom of my heart with best wishes, especially you, dear Ria (Frank Waldvogel).
I am very happy to have participated, because the space and framework that RIA creates so that we can move forward and so much love (in us) can arise, which then creates a harmonious and trusting group that did not know each other before, has only now really become clear to me. (Helmut Godesberg)

It has enriched my life a lot. And what wanted to be said was said, also in personal conversations. There is one thing I would like to add: I was impressed by the tenderness and openness of the participants in their dealings with each other, and I am taking many impulses with me from a week that, on balance, inspired me a lot, even if at times it was anything but pleasant for me, to put it mildly. (Mark).

To the retreat in June 2019

I feel very grateful to be here and to have done these processes and to have gone through all the challenging moments. The issues and questions that I brought with me became clear to me during the week. I have the feeling that I have once again arrived more deeply at myself and am releasing myself from external hold. (Lukas Balfanz, man 28).

I found the days and the group "easy to take". The love for those of you I knew has deepened, that for the "new ones" has grown. I always felt exactly in my place. A. said that she sees with me that it is worth going through all the processes and you, Ria, replied "and at some point they will stop". That touched me deeply. Through the incarnation we looked at together, the feeling deepened in me that my being is enough and that I don't always have to act. For me it was a new experience to be here as a loving couple, to give space to our love and to do this without losing sight of the group or separating myself. When I look at my last picture it shows what I am and what I want to live. I feel stronger than yes as your (Ria's) right hand, the body guard of your heart. And I don't know if I could love you (Ria) any more than I already do. (Corinna Wagner, woman 53)

Today, on the last day, when I looked around at noon, I was very happy; seeing all these people who have gone through processes has touched me very much and I am very grateful for that. The week was very challenging for me, with what felt like tens of processes that accompanied me; I suspect that something has happened, but I can't grasp it yet. And I guess that's how it's supposed to be right now. A key moment was at the picture meeting today when Corinna said that she can see in the picture of S what I will be like. That really did it for me - now I know with absolute clarity where it may continue to go for me. (Shila Schönhals, woman 30)

The first two days I came to very deep feelings of loneliness, of not being right and out of place in this world, with not knowing if I still had the strength to go on living. One session put me in touch with the power that made me incarnate. After that everything changed and I was allowed to experience myself in the wonderful experience of a common previous incarnation as a woman with great power and part of a group of people who lived together in great respect, appreciation and love. This also changed my perception of myself in the current group a lot. I felt that I really loved all the participants, without exception, and had never felt as much a part of them as I do here. And I especially thank you (Ria) for being completely there in every moment of these processes.(AS, woman, 58)

I came here with quite a lot of fear. The processes were deep and fruitful. Then the absolute highlight was the joint incarnation, where I felt well this sense of belonging that I feel here. I didn't know that this was possible with so many people at the same time. The fact that I see so much in the process has given me a lot of security. The emergency situation at home with my partner, which is why she had to leave, has helped me in retrospect to clearly find my place in myself as well as in my partnership and also in the group. In addition, the discussion of the pictures helped me a lot; I am grateful for every task that helps me further. It was an enormous joy to let go of everything so that I could paint my last picture from my centre and it represents exactly what I am. (Axel W. Mann 53)

Dear Ria, the retreat was very profound for me; these five days were very dense. And although I had prepared myself for an intense inner "work", neither "effort" nor "strain" has been noticeable. Rather, it felt like a joint family outing where the trust, connection and love for all participants grew more and more and inner steps were possible with ease. Perhaps the most important point for me was when we talked about the wings; that inspired me to show myself clearly and without shyness, without holding anything back.... Your feedback about taking my place made me realise that my place is also important for others. And the incarnation together has taught me something that is also important here today. I have done several retreats with you, but this one was another quantum leap. Thank you very much for that! (Dr. Christian Kern, man, 63)

Voices from the retreat "learning to show yourself

The retreat was/is a very valuable experience for me. I experienced and lived through many feelings. In between I felt like a hangover at the tiled stove. I find that a great gift, because that is not always possible in my (current) everyday life.
With the penultimate picture, an old dream of mine has come back to my consciousness. This touches me very much and makes me look forward joyfully.
Thank you very much for your loving and caring way and see you soon, Philipp.

This seminar has brought all the previous seminars together for me, and brought deep meaning to my life. What I had sensed instinctively or intellectually but had not achieved, I now feel as my truth. Everything I have experienced so far, in this life and in others, are paths to the light. Even the detours, the mistakes, the suffering. They have all lost their protagonism. Now my consciousness is clearly focused on the real me. The joy in me now is true and very calm. It flows through my body. I have a new relationship with my body, as a wonderful participant in Team - I. I have a new relationship with my body. What needs to be improved in my personality: my behaviour, my processes, are all part of my Project - Me. For all this I am infinitely grateful Ria. P.S.:
a. Before the retreat my defiance came up when I had technical difficulties with computer, links etc. and panicked. Then I received loving support from Ria and the team technique. This was already my first retreat initiation to the new knowledge that I am not alone in the world before the beginning. Thank you again! with love, Sharon

Thank you Ria for your supportive and loving presence during the days - I felt it very much -, for your work in re-modelling this whole seminar and for walking with us with your heart. I leave deeply enriched. Thanks also to Axel and the IT team for the many hours of research until this solution was found! And thanks to all in the group for your showing and sharing - you carried me along. Taija

retreat 3

Ria's retreat on learning to show oneself has brought me closer to myself. I have become even more aware of my being, my light and have recognised the limitations and restrictions that hold me back from showing and living my full being and light. I feel deep gratitude in myself and can recommend it to everyone who wants to progress on their path and come into their full greatness.
Ria's loving presence carries you through these days and you feel protected and enveloped. So that you can also face your deepest fears. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, dearest Ria! Maren

I was able to recognise a few things for myself again. The online form was a good opportunity for me to go further. I received the feedback that was essential for me. Even over the distance I felt very well accompanied by your love, your clarity and your clear vision!
Once again a deep and heartfelt thank you for making it possible in this way, and especially for the many, many hours of work it cost you! You are a blessing! Love, Amina

More voices on Ria's work

"I have been working as a psychotherapist, supervisor, coach and teaching therapist since 1984. A few years ago, however, I noticed the urgency to be in service to the people who come to me with a more holistic way of working. At first, I engaged intensively with what seemed to me to be a promising new development. Then I got to know Ria Panen Godesberg and her way of working. This was the comprehensive answer for me personally and for my therapeutic work. "(Dr.C. K)

"In a very difficult life crisis I got to know Ria's work. She helped me to gradually take on my own responsibility, to let go of the victim role, to get a new zest for life and to come out of the traumatic event stronger. She was never a "guru" who told me what to do. She only ever helped me to find the solution within myself. Today I am happier than before the event and infinitely grateful that I was able to get to know Ria's work. In order to help other people to live their lives more freely, happily and self-determinedly, I started the training and today I work in two professions with great inner fulfilment. Before I knew Ria, I looked for God outside of myself and often did not find him. Today I know how to find the divine power within me and have learned to love unconditionally. "(C.W-S.)

Dear Ria,
It has been a great joy for me to work with the thesis and I am very grateful to you for this topic I have been allowed to see, recognise and heal a lot. Thank you for seeing me!
Thank you very much for everything and I love you more than anything.
Yours M"
(Written after "THE COURSE")

"Since I experienced how THE COURSE with Ria brought me conscious love and self-love skills and thus orientation and independence, the decision phase to start the massage training was short. I am very amazed at what I and the people I massage are able to experience after only a short time of practising, which is helpful and insightful, and I look forward and hope to be able to increase my mediation, empathy and perception skills in this sense, always under the control and guidance of Ria herself and her two Überlingen instructors"(F.W.).

Dear Ria, you are one of the streams through which the Divine can feed and nourish its children. Thank you for carrying this out with such great love! From the heart, Raphaela

Ria,
Your life is not only for you; you have decided to live it anew every year.
You are ready for our questions; you want to guide us when we venture out onto the ice.
So you should also know that what you do for us is never forgotten, even when you rest.
So take these lines into your heart, for we all know that you too feel pain.
There is still so much to tell; but only a few words can be chosen for all this.
Thank you for your love, E.S. and S.S.

Ria, it’s been over ten years since I came to you first time. When I met you, I was impressed with the healing you brought about in me, with the love that I experienced so real for the first time in my life, with your clear sight. Especially because I had been “everywhere” without positive results. Yet now, 10 years later, I must say I am impressed and find it remarkable that you could grow even more. Your love and your skill, your understanding and strength have even amazingly, wonderfully and almost incredibly increased... (R.S.2001)
