Personalized, individual attention to practitioners

In our relationship with our practitioners everyone is an individual. This means that practitioners have a program developed exclusively for them which follows the guidelines of the DeRose Method and which is personalized. The ultimate objective is to achieve individual progress and evolution.

Practitioners select an Instructor to work with them on this personal development program, setting goals and objectives. Practitioners and their instructors will then monitor the progress consistently and constantly. This program follows the guidelines and the stages outlined in the DeRose Method’s evolutive scale. Each practitioner can go as far into this scale as they desire (although your instructor will always be hoping for a graduation to the next level).

Everyone starts at the DeRose Method at the first degree, beginner. The graduation to the next degree takes place when the practitioner fulfills certain predefined criteria which will also be part of the individual development program. Each stage after that generates a quality improvement producing an effective development goal at each stage of the process.

Are practitioners obliged to progress? Of course not! Our Method can be easily personalized so that each individual can have the experience that is best for them. However, your instructor will always want to have goals to help you to improve.

Through a practitioners’ program the objective is always to maintain evolution and achieve ever higher levels of performance, development and satisfaction!

The day does not need more time: you need more focus!

Article by Edgardo Caramella

It’s natural that, as a good becomes scarce, its value increases in proportion to its demand. This law of supply and demand can be applied not only to goods and services, but also to more subtle elements. Observe what occurs with time, which is less tangible compared to objects or elements of the physical dimension, there is no doubt that time is a factor which affects our lives substantially.

In the words of Jorge Luis Borges: “time is the susbtance of which I was made.” And the brilliant writer was not mistaken in this observation, because we are that: time. In this passage of time is our work, our contribution, our existence and also our legacy when our time runs out. It is extremely valuable to know how to manage it, to spend it in a constructive way, to know that it is a very very precious, fleeting and the basis on which our lives are built.

It’s evident that time adjusts to the different perceptions each person has of it. This diversity of interpretations is a human construct that influences the individual and collective aspects of life in a very important way. Each person has their time, their pauses, their rhythms, and we should know how to relate to others within this range of varying perceptions.

When the clock predominates, time is a very valuable commodity. The phrase time is money, attributed to Benjamin Franklin, establishes this clearly. In contrast, within cultures where the events set the time and its value, the general behavior is more flexible and human relations occupy a place of utmost importance.

Time and money are measured in different ways. I consider the appropriate management of time important, to not lose it as a result of a lack of concentration or in activities that do not generate results. We can incorporate a productive pace, with effective results, and without excessive stress if we learn to do that.

In the workplace, for example, you can avoid the word “URGENT” – which in itself predisposes the excessive production of adrenaline – if everyone establishes a more conscious, logical and constructive relationship with time. The DeRose Method offers an effective tool for training time management, based on a clear understanding that we should incorporate, work on what we are to do what we do better.

The Immense Effect of Doing Nothing

Article by Yael Barcesat, translated by John Chisenhall

We are the architects of our own destiny, even when we do nothing. Nothingness generates consequences, like everything that is said, or not said; everything you do, or don’t do. These non-actions, still contribute a brick to the construction of ourselves.

I wonder if the Cartesian principle “I think, therefore I am” would be more true if we replaced the word “think” for “do”. Hindus codified this natural phenomenon as karma, stating that “everything generates karma”. Professor DeRose defines karma as a universal law of cause and effect.

Taking refuge in the bed under the covers and not leaving the house all day is the equivalent of pretending to avoid the dawn by keeping the eyes closed. But we know that tomorrow the sun will rise again, even though the sky is overcast. Based on this, why not choose a more consistent behavior in harmony with the tendencies of nature and use those forces in our favor. So often, it seems, these forces have been overlooked by humans.

Is it possible to remove the juice from a fruit without squeezing? The same concept applies to our lives and goals, we must go to them.
