About

For 1:1 work, you will probably need to wait 4-6 weeks to work with me. I prefer to work with clients for a shorter period, intensive immersion of 4-6 sessions, rather than weekly for an extended period of time. I do hold two types of weekly groups that are ongoing, although they are open to new people from time time. Check my website and youtube channel to understand more about my work and different modules I have available (1:1 sessions, Circle of Being Somatic Shadow Work, Non-Duality, Kiloby Inquiries, intensives or facilitator trainings) https://circleofbeingshadowwork.com/
My approach is experiential, effective and practical -influenced by Hakomi ~Mindfulness based Somatic Psychotherapy, Shadow Work, Gestalt, Psychodrama, Attachment Theory, CBT, as well as a variety of Eastern spiritual teachings (Advaita, 4th Way). I have extensive experience working with men, women and youth in crisis, as well as incarcerated men.
I have a client-centered approach guiding the client back to their own innate inner wisdom, strengths and authentic self. I consider mindfulness and self-inquiry as an important ingredient in the process of healing, freedom from unnecessary suffering, and being happy celebrating life.

Algiu Mihai's Groups

Circle of Being Shadow Work Release Group

This group (8-12 people) is meant to provide a safe and compassionate group container to help its participants look inside and explore any 'shadows' ~ limiting beliefs and undermining strategies that keep us stuck in our life, repeating unsuccessful, misery-creating patters both in personal life, relationships and interactions with the world and career. Through a wide variety of practical and experiential methods, these blocks will be gradually explored and dissolved through bringing more awareness to our patterns, developing ability to be deeply aware of our inner workings and processing unresolved early issues 'clouding' our freedom, authenticity and fulfillment.

More about this group

Circle of Being Shadow Work Release Group

This group modality is meant to take 'healing' and therapy to the next level, by becoming a 'evolutionary tool', meant to help one free oneself from layers of limiting conditioning (beliefs and feeling systems trapped in our body/mind). The inner journey from a 'domesticated' contracted existence to discovering one's true identity and living from that, integrated and embodied, in all aspects of one's life. This experiential group uses a hybrid of various therapeutical modalities (Hakomi, Somatic Psychology, Jungian 'Shadow' work), as well as spiritually focused traditions/teachings such as Advaita/Non-Duality, Buddhism and 4th Way.

More about this group

Circle of Being ~ One Day Intensive

The day will be spent in silent or guided meditation, consciousness exploration, self-inquiry as well as engaging in ‘GUTS’ Shadow Work Group processing for the purposes of freeing onself of stuck, unfinished business and limiting programs holding us back from our true potential and inner peace. The one day intensive will take place at my house (Nevada City), in an outdoor setting, with social distancing, under redwood tree. My co-facilitator is David Klaus (public defendant in Oakland, Zen priest, senior facilitator with Mankind Project as well as versed in prison work that we have done together).
