HIT – Heroes of Inclusion and Transformation
15/10/2017 – 14/05/2019 (19 months)
Human beings who are not free or not able to express emotions, are manipulable. On the long run suppression of emotions is sickening corporeally and psychically. Our modern rationalist culture places the so-called "negative emotions" like grief, anger, pain and anxiety under a taboo. So-called "positive emotions" like curiousness and joy are desired. Tabooing and sanctioning of "negative emotions" lead to an emotional jam. To submit to order and authority and to attack and marginalize others is the outcome very often and thus forms a basis for generalisation, prejudice, hatred, radicalism, terrorism and violent actionism. In our culture there is no protected space, in which these "negative emotions" can be expressed and reintegrated again in a way, which makes sense.
In this way HIT is a project for the integration of social relevant shadow themes. Inclusion and transformation refer to the shadow sides within ourselves as well as to the shadow (marginalized) people in society. Heroes want to express that people doing this work deserve more appreciation by society.
This project enables to experience the topics of our clients within ourselves, thus having a sharper view on our own identity. This can serve as basis for deepening, expanding and fine-tuning of our own set of methods in dealing with current social shadow topics (competition, fear of change etc.) and allows to work on them and to transform them personally in a group, training and developing new abilities like carrying out conflicts, courage for innovation, thus integrating these and allowing inclusion.
