(Second Part)

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival” Aristotle.

In the story of Ovid, Athena could be a "Troll" of our days. In this series, it is represented as a double entity that personifies "envy" and "Schadenfreude".

Perseus, in order to save his mother, felt forced to kill Medusa with the help of Athena and Hermes, subject to the will of Polydectes.

Freud interpreted the murder of Medusa, as a fear of "castration" or loss of power.

This idea could be related to the aversion to one's weakness and vulnerability, which is usually, one of the main motivations of the new attacks that the traumatised person experiences after the original aggression.

Our defence mechanism activates the limbic system and the reptilian brain as an adaptive response to the situation of risk and real-life threat. This prolonged response changes the physiology of our brain. After trauma, the outside world is experienced with a different nervous system.

“The rational, analyzing part of the brain (…) has no direct connections with the emotional brain, where most imprints of trauma reside, but the medial prefrontal cortex, the center of self-awareness, does”.

Neuroscience research shows that the only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going inside ourselves.” Bessel van der Kolk MD

The continuous training of interoception (feeling our internal organs) deactivates instinctive reactivity, regulates emotions, integrates memories, makes us aware and gives us a new confidence to face vital challenges.

The possible new aggressions could, in most cases, disintegrate in the absence of an internal and external reaction, or a calm response full of confidence.

Life can continue with this unbreakable internal security that confers the capacity for conscious response (responsibility).


The hero is ready for a new transformation. From heroes to gods.

(Segunda Parte)

"El valor final de la vida depende de la conciencia y el poder de la contemplación en lugar de la mera supervivencia” Aristóteles.

En la historia de Ovidio, Atenea podría ser un "Troll" de nuestros días. En esta serie es representada como una doble entidad que personifica “la envidia" y “la epicaricacia”.

Perseo, para salvar a su madre, se sintió obligado a matar a Medusa con la ayuda de Atenea y Hermes, sujeto a la voluntad de Polidectes.

Freud interpretó el asesinato de Medusa, como miedo a la “castración” o pérdida de poder.

Esta idea podría relacionarse a la aversión a la propia debilidad y vulnerabilidad que suele ser una de las mayores motivaciones de los nuevos ataques que la persona traumatizada experimenta después de la agresión original.

Nuestro mecanismo de defensa activa el sistema límbico y el cerebro reptiliano como respuesta adaptativa a la situación de riesgo y amenaza real. Esta respuesta prolongada cambia la fisiología de nuestro cerebro.
Después del trauma, el mundo exterior se experimenta con un sistema nervioso diferente.

“Lo racional, la parte analítica del cerebro (...) no tiene conexiones directas con el cerebro emocional, donde residen la mayoría de las impresiones de trauma, pero la corteza prefrontal medial, el centro de la autoconciencia, sí. La investigación neurocientífica demuestra que la única manera en que podemos cambiar la forma en que nos sentimos es tomando conciencia de nuestra experiencia interna y aprendiendo a familiarizarnos con lo que está sucediendo dentro de nosotros mismos". Dr.Bessel van der Kolk

El entrenamiento continuado de la interocepción (sentir nuestros órganos internos) desactiva la reactividad instintiva, regula las emociones, integra las memorias, nos hace conscientes y nos otorga una nueva confianza para afrontar los retos vitales.

Las posibles nuevas agresiones podrían, en la mayoría de casos, desintegrarse ante la ausencia de reacción interna y externa, o ante una calmada respuesta llena de confianza.

La vida puede proseguir con esta inquebrantable seguridad interna que confiere habilidad consciente de respuesta (responsabilidad).

El héroe está ya listo para una nueva transformación. De héroes a dioses

In the story of Ovid, Athena could be a "Troll" of our days. In this series, it is represented as a double entity that personifies "envy" and "Schadenfreude" (Sadistic pleasure derived by someone from another person's pain and misfortune).

The envy and the sadistic desire to destroy Medusa that Athena feels, in this project is neutralized by the Medusa's conscious observation.

This project is especially dedicated to all those everyday heroes and heroines who, after trauma, decide each day; to live instead of dying, to stand up and walk, instead of being trapped in the spiral of pain and agonising sadness that they feel inside. To those who actively choose to help themselves to help the world. These are the resilient and silent heroes and heroines of our daily world, who, though lacking in fame, fortune and recognition, dare to walk daily through the endless arduous and unknown path of their inner journey, for their self-improvement and survival.

Special thanks to the scientifics and therapists who decided to undertake non-traditional paths within the profession, teach us that trauma, far from being a mental illness, is a transformative life experience (Dr Peter Levine M.D) that can be completely healed (Dr Daniel J .Siegel, Dr Bessel Van Der Kolk, and others).

“If we can make sense of our past—if we integrate our narratives—we can free ourselves from what might otherwise be a cross-generational legacy of pain and insecure attachment. (…) taking responsibility for one’s own mind can lead to the liberation of the self, and to the ability to offer nurturance and love to the next generation.”

Dr Daniel J. Siegel. “Mindsight.”

Este proyecto está especialmente dedicado a todos aquellos héroes y heroínas cotidianos que, después del trauma, deciden cada día; vivir en lugar de morir, levantarse y caminar, en lugar de quedarse atrapados en la espiral del dolor y tristeza agonizante que sienten por dentro. A quienes eligen activamente ayudarse a sí mismos/as para ayudar al mundo. Estos son los héroes y heroínas resilientes y silenciosos de nuestro mundo cotidiano, quienes, aunque carecen de fama, fortuna y reconocimiento, se atreven a caminar diariamente a través del interminable arduo y desconocido camino de su viaje interior, para su superación y supervivencia.

Gracias especialmente a los científicos y terapeutas que decidieron emprender caminos no tradicionales dentro de la profesión, nos enseñan que, el trauma, lejos de ser una enfermedad mental, es una experiencia vital transformadora (Dr. Peter Levine) que puede ser completamente curado (Dr. Daniel J.Siegel, Dr. Bessel van der kolk, y otros).

“Si podemos dar sentido a nuestro pasado, si integramos nuestras narraciones, podemos liberarnos de lo que de otra manera podría ser un legado intergeneracional de dolor y apego inseguro. (...) responsabilizarse por la propia mente puede conducir a la liberación del yo y a la capacidad de ofrecer salud y amor a la próxima generación “.
