Philosophy and aims
We are strongly convinced that spreading of Bates method does not depend so much on how many persons we are able to reach through our seminars and encounters, but on how many Bates operators and teachers are able to reach them.
During the conferences we hold around in Italy, but also during seminars and even during individual encounters we became used to meet persons who had never heard about the method until that moment or that were taking part to the event just because they were accompanying somebody else.
We had always thought it was OK also like that and the most important thing was to speak about it so that people can start knowing it.
Over the years and on the basis of our experience, we changed our mind. We receive persons in our centre coming from really far away. We have persons coming from Ischia, Benevento, Aosta, Verona... , we lead experiential seminars in Lucca, Treviso, Sondrio, Biella, Torino, besides the one in Milan. On the basis of that we think that the only way to approach Bates method to persons needing it is the widespread presence of Bates teachers in all areas.
No worry of competition (we don't have the numbers for that), we only want that Bates method becomes a concrete help and in order to achieve that it must be known and easily reachable by everybody.
Consequently in our opinion the only way to concretely spread this fantastic growth experience is to train as many persons as possible. Prepared and motivated Bates teacher able to popularize the method (after having lived it personally).
