José Miguel Silva
16:30 pm - 18.30 pm
José Miguel Silva, from an early age, participated in self-help and personal development groups. He graduated in Advertising Engineering from Universidade Fernando Pessoa. For years he developed his creative side at the service of prestigious companies and clients, having excelled in his field as a copywritter and graphic designer. However, his enormous vocation for therapy led him to graduate in Traditional Chinese Medicine, by IPN-Porto, having interned internationally in Hospitals in China. Later, he specialized in the same field, at the Heidelberg School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, through the University of Porto – ICBAS.
In the course of his profession, he was faced with the impact of emotions on the physical and mental health of his patients. It is then that, after a few years, he decides to transform his area, embracing emotional therapies, having specialized in the approach of systemic therapy of Family Constellations, branch to which he has been dedicated since then.
He graduated in Transpersonal Therapy from Escuela de Desarrollo Transpersonal, having later joined the professional staff as a tutor / teacher for new students in Portugal.
In 2013, together with other members, he became founder and president of APT – Portuguese Association for Transpersonal Development, in office until the end of 2015.
Another decisive moment was the entry into the Integrated Master in Psychology, by the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto, with specialization in clinical and health psychology. Aligned with his path, which confronted him with the clients’ biopsychosocial issues, he decided to embrace with deep interest the need to become a psychologist and, thus, to frame his approach as a therapist with more rigor in the areas of mental health.
This 5-year training culminates with the clinical experience in psychological intervention with children, adolescents and adults in the context of a primary care health unit in a health center in Vila Nova de Gaia.
In the field of psychotherapy, he continues his studies as director of psychodrama by the Portuguese Psychodrama Association.
He positions himself with strong dedication to the areas of transpersonal therapy, training of therapists and systemic therapy of constellations. His journey as a constellator is guided by countless hours of training, therapeutic retreats and participation in the Hellinger trainning Camps run by Hellinger Sciencia in Germany.
With about 12 years of experience in the business, it has hundreds of workshops and experiential meetings with its customers, thus facilitating the path to openness and consciousness.
He has given numerous lectures, courses and workshops on the subject, having participated in the 1st congress of systemic law in Portugal.
Trainer in Family Constellations in Portugal.
There are times in life when we are overwhelmed by issues that truly limit our existence. They limit our potential. They limit how much we have to give and receive. They limit the perception of ourselves, of others, of relationships. They limit professions and health, and all areas that make up living. It is at these times that there seems to be an internal voice that asks us: when, after all, does our Life begin?
Bert Hellinger immediately pointed out that the essential, that part we lack, is simple. And the constellations show that we can only take Life when the clarity and lightness of the places are felt. Taking Life then involves taking the place in Life. Recognizing this place will be the first step. Saying yes to that place will be the next process of taking it as ours and growing with it. It is a place that speaks to us more about time than space and which Bert Hellinger associates with a very specific order. Finding that order is a key in all Hellingerian philosophy. It dissolves conflicts, reconciles and brings them together. It allows us to let go of childish glances and return to the adult we are. It allows the force to enter and Life to prosper even in the most difficult destinations. The order of the place allows love to enter, is at your service, and without order it is just love that gets sick.
In this presentation, I intend to inspire the audience to recognize the order of places and thus serve Life. The places between parents and children; between brothers; in adoption; in marital relations; current and original families; in the countries; in institutions; and education. I will bring in a simple way the essentials of family constellations on the strength of places, so that the path of pacification becomes clearer in each one. It will be an invitation for reflection and also for internal experience, totally inspired by the love that resides internally and in the groups to which we belong.
