The Third Eye - Dubai

“Know Thyself”, two words of eternal significance. Contemplating this dictate leads the individual into a profound understanding of creation. It transforms unhappiness, fear, sadness, doubt, and all the negative emotions to meaningless.

For the second time, the Rainbow Vortex at The Third Eye is happy to host the Self Journey Through Art program facilitated by Rima Kaddissi. This remarkable program is a road map into the rebirth of the lost self while using art as one of its mediums.

The program’s fundamental aim is to answer the question:
Who am I? Have you asked yourself that question before?
Are you able to see who you really are?
Are you your true self, or just a product of your environment?

A person is a definite product of his/her environment to the extent that sometimes there is a loss of identity which leads the person to feel unaccomplished, un-complete and lost, unable to know what he/she wants from life, how to have a vision, or create a future.

This state of being often leads the person into a place of disconnection from self and environment. If not altered, this may lead to bareness of thought and act which may create personal and social issues where the person may fall into a victim/passive mode where the pure essence of his/her being is lost: the DIVINE ACT OF CREATING.

The SJTA program is a highly interactive and retrospective process through which a person shifts in awareness to become a whole unified independent INDIVIUAL.

How it works:

Rima will guide you through a creative intellectual, introspective process and an experience of understanding, acknowledging, releasing, mending, and recreating the pieces of your self. It is a process of healing, transformation, and evolution.

In addition to the inner realization, there is an analysis and understanding of the external world, and a creation of a language through which you will communicates with the environment while being whole and complete.

As a result of this process, you will shift from being a passive, dominated, imprinted receiver, to an active, empowered, creative avant-garde creator of reality, standing confidently in your reality, and projecting and individual vision of the future.
