What is EXSTATICA? Is it good for self-help?
EXSTATICA is an approach to self-help and personal development. It makes easier for you to understand what your life purpose is, and how to express it through your cognition, emotions and behavior. It is inspired by the transformative sparkles that ignited the Italian Renaissance. While we are all well aware of the artistic, economic and spiritual glory of Renaissance, it was also a time of sudden changes, instability, and polarization between forces who wanted a more open, inclusive and evidence-based society on one side, and obscurantism and repression on the other. The similarities with our World today are very strong.
What does EXSTATICA bring to me?
EXSTATICA brings you inspirations and tools to understand what really matters to you. For example, by using the so-called “Mantegna Tarot”. It does not tell you what to believe, or what not to believe. It gives you an opportunity to understand what you are doing due to conditioning, and what you really want to do. And then it makes easier for you to align your life to what is important for you, staying receptive to the feedback you receive from live itself.
Is EXSTATICA about the past or the future?
It is about the present. We are not advocating a return to the past. We are taking the inspirations that made the Renaissance possible. Integrating them with advancements that followed the Renaissance, like contemporary research (especially in the ares of cognitive and physical wellbeing). And putting EXSTATICA at a service of personal wellbeing, to cultivate a more joyful and open society now.
What does EXSTATICA keep in consideration?
EXSTATICA facilitates awareness of what matters for you, plus your cognitive, emotional and physical/behavioural wellbeing. You can apply it to your personal wellbeing, creativity, relationships, career, business, financial wellbeing.
What else does EXSTATICA stand for?
EXSTATICA also wants to remind us the importance of honoring the feminine. The masculine aspects of behaviours, emotions, cognitions and even beliefs, have been over-represented for a long time in our history. The feminine component is still far from being fully appreciated, in all its importance. Call this principle Shekhinah, Yin, or identify it with the beloved women of the Dolce Stil Novo, Dante’s Beatrice, Botticelli’s Simonetta Vespucci. Call it as you wish, but instead of projecting on the feminine the masculine idea of it, let the feminine component express it as it is. In society, politics, relationships, business, art, etc.
