Join us for an intimate and interactive journey of self discovery!
The Shadow, said Jung, is the unknown ‘‘dark side’’ of our personality.
In this workshop we will use Points of You® Coaching Game and Faces to meet our shadows, bring them to light and embrace them.
The task in life which thus confronts everyone, according to Jung, is to become conscious of and integrate one’s shadow into one’s conscious personality: accepting it with open arms not as an abhorrent aspect of one’s self, but as a necessary and vital part of one’s being. To accept and embrace our Shadow Self is to go back and become “whole” again and thus taste a glimpse of what authentic “holiness” feels like.
"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious."
"Shadow work is the path of the heart warrior."
"To confront a person with his own shadow is to show him his own light."
Carl Jung
We use innovative, fun methods and tools to facilitate meaningful discussions, lessen conflicts and build bridges between people. A cornerstone of the Points of You® method is the interaction between the right brain, the intuitive and emotional half of the brain, and the left brain, focused on logic and analysis. This occurs when we look at a photograph and a word at the same time.The photograph stimulates our right, creative, brain while the word activates the left, analytical, brain. The simultaneous stimulation of the two brain hemispheres creates a struggle between the emotional and the rational, momentarily “shorting out” the vigilant defense mechanisms of our mind. This “deliberate confusion” gives the mind a short respite from our preconceived ideas on how things “should” or “ought” to be, and allows our mind to open up to new places inside ourselves, shifting our point of view.
Our games are based on associative links between photograph, theme and the issue we have chosen. Each photograph depicted on the Points of You® cards was selected out of thousands of available photographs to achieve this one purpose: introducing a theme through visual stimulus that has no direct or obvious connection to it, thus stimulating our entire rational and emotional system. Doing that, we purposefully leave a space wide enough for personal interpretation, a personal inter-space. This unique inner motion creates a new response, resulting in emotions and insights that are new to our mind and heart.
The method is designed like a sine wave. At its starting point we are wide open and exposed to many points of view regarding our theme of choice: relationships, parenting, career, health or any other issue. After expanding our points of view, it’s time to focus. The focusing process involves being precise and selecting the most significant insight for our specific issue. In the last stage we take our insights into the practical world – tachles, and outline actions to achieve our goal.


Having formally trained in Economics and Graphic Design, Sezin worked with the independent film industry in worldwide distribution and production for over 15 years. About 10 years ago, she was introduced to breath work which started her spiritual path and the questioning of her career path. She soon became a Certified Holistic Health Coach and established the wellness website MindBodySoul.
Sezin found helping people achieve physical health very rewarding but she wanted to do more. In 2016, she attended a Points of You training in New York and fell in love with it. Points of You incorporates photo therapy, coaching, envisioning, creativity and fun to open up new perspectives on oneself and the world. 
Sezin is now a certified Points of You trainer and has led workshops around the world.
She is very passionate about working with people, especially teens and women. Her workshops invite participants to feel empowered and inspired to step out of their comfort zone and live with renewed passion.
