FreeFall Immersion – So Africa – 2020

March 13, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - March 29, 2020 @ 5:30 pm

The PaRama Life Sciences; BreakThrough, FreeFall and Mindscape,
Supports individuals’ pursuit of their human potential development.

“It is a tragedy that the human race has allowed itself to create such complexity of negative rules and belief systems around the body they have to live in from birth to death. One would think that when we have to spend so much time with something given to us by God, we would learn to love and respect it. We would want to look after it and nurture it. We would want to train our children to grow up with healthy and positive feelings about it. To be able to enjoy its magnificence of structure and feelings. To respect, enjoy, and love the bodies of fellow life travelers without the denial, guilt, abuse, and hostility we see so commonly in this world.

Individuals who choose to embrace the openness, honesty, and bring with self in it’s natural form, can at least profoundly enhance the experience of joy, health, and peace in their own lives and have a positive effect on those around them.

By encouraging a healthy positive attitude to our bodies, we are encouraging a healthy relationship with our mind, soul, spirit, and our environment. That will make a difference within our own lives and, if enough of us do it peacefully and responsibly, the world.” – Dr. John Veltheim

FreeFall participants explore SELF by stripping off the mask of coping.
The “Coping Mask” is a matrix of fears, judgments, beliefs and behaviors that restrict an individual from embracing and loving life.

    • FreeFall is explored in a safe, confidential environment free of anything sexual in nature.
    • The FreeFall Seminar is by application only. The application is based on a thorough screening process by the Application Committee.
    • Eligibility is limited to applicants having demonstrated an active personal and professional commitment towards the IBA code of ethics.
    • Applicants are reviewed by PaRama Life Science Admissions to determine eligibility; additional information may be requested.

Testimonial from FF1:

Dearest dearest Myriam
I thank you from the deepest recesses of my heart for my weekend with you.
As I write to you with such gratitude, my tears are falling.  They haven’t quite stopped since Saturday…and they are tears of grief, of finally letting go – of all the weight, the heaviness and rigidity that I never quite realised I was carrying until I looked into the mirror.  I realised then that I never really felt…I had no feeling, no attachment, and I thought I was doing decently in life as I have so many other blessings on other levels that I really have nothing to complain about.  I didn’t even understand the vulnerability I had.  
I now do not fear these tears….I embrace.
I didn’t realise the depth of my lack of self worth, of self love.  Until this weekend, I couldn’t see…I even couldn’t look into my own eyes.
Your love and light has changed this all.  Your guidance and support, completely priceless.  
I have finally begun my journey into freefalling, into receiving and letting go…into openness, expansiveness.
Thank you with all of my being
Li-Lin – Singapore





Testimonial FF2:

I write with joy, because I feel it in me, along with hope. I did Freefall 1 and 2 over 2 weekends with Myriam Machado Baker. I came to class with a litany of complaints – of terrible body image, of worthlessness and lack in intimacy, amongst many other issues. Given that there is a pledge of confidentiality, I won’t share any details and it is a huge understatement to say I have left class with a new perspective. 
I can share my afterthoughts – Myriam teaches with such grace and wisdom. She shares her stories as offerings to us – her invitations and nudges to change, to take responsibility and to be strong, have taught me that I am more than strong. And I am many things that form a dual and exact opposite to the negativity that I have held for such A Long Time. Myriam holds the space ferociously and protects the conditions for change with a sense of care, sensitivity and consistency that is admirable.
I don’t claim to now have a positive and glowing body image, and my intimate encounters have not miraculously transformed. In fact, nothing has changed per se, save for my perspective and the potential for change. I am feeling kind to what I see and feel, and that creates such possibilities. Having said that, thinking about the class takes my breath away and I want to cry from what we have realized and awakened these past weekends. After all, what are we as humans if not each a complex combination of experiences – to live through, to recover from, to learn from, to build from, to integrate and move on from. 
I have received care, nurturing and acknowledgment in a manner that humbles and touches me to the core. I am grateful. And I find I want to give back more – to this Freefall group, to anyone who has participated or is thinking to participate in this class and finally to both Myriam and Sufen for creating such magic for us in the class. 
All my heart,
