The author of the book INTERMISSIVE COURSE: did you prepare for the challenges of human life?”  talks about the release of her first work, how she took responsibility for her condition as an intermissivist and how this research can help you to assume responsibility for your life project.


Tathiana, why did you decide to write about Intermissive Courses?

In 2003, while still living in Rio de Janeiro, during a bioenergetic activity I had a remarkable experience related to the Intermissive Course. From that moment on I started to thoroughly investigate the issue. Over the years I motivated myself to write this book to help people who do not yet know the science of Conscientiology, but have an interest and openness to consider themselves in a broader manner. So, I gathered my research on Intermissive Courses and sought to didactically organise it to meet the needs of this audience.

Who are intermissivists?

Intermissivists are those people who prepared themselves, before being born, to carry out certain evolutionary tasks in human life, in the most diverse areas. In order to do this they had become students of Intermissive Courses. In these courses the intermissivists’ deeply study themselves, identify their talents, plan their mission for the next existence, and set challenging tasks in life that contribute to the improvement of society in assistantial, peaceful, ethical, and libertarian terms.


How did you find out that you were an intermissivist? When did this “penny drop”?

Since childhood I had the conviction that I should seriously and responsibly lead my life. Despite not being clear about the reasons, I always sought to follow certain patterns of maturity that at times were unusual for people my age. As a teenager, I started experimenting and got interested in bioenergy and parapsychic phenomena. In 1993, upon discovering the various subjects studied in Conscientiology, I saw my values and motivations resonated with the profile of an intermissivist as described in the works of researcher Waldo Vieira. I more deeply understood personal convictions that I held since childhood and the self-confirmation of my intuitions about my life and the need to contribute to Humanity in some way.

What changed in you after accepting that you were a student of an Intermissive Course?

Everything changed! Bioenergetic and parapsychic experiences bring, over time, increasing levels of confidence and well-being. I think that few things can bring more balance to a person than understanding oneself, understanding your role in this life. On the other hand, the greater our general overview on the process of personal evolution, the greater the sense of responsibility to give back, in the here-and-now, the teachings received in Intermissive Courses. Self-awareness of having been an intermissivist, before being reborn, triggers ongoing needs for personal recycling and searching for self-overcoming.

Who do you recommend this book to? Who is the audience?

This book is dedicated to anyone who has, within themselves, the motivation to search for their transcendent reality in order to mature their manifestations in daily life. It is also written for those who want to adopt a more qualified and ethical conduct in interrelationships and to those who do not feel calm in a superficial, materialistic life, dedicated only to robotic routines of the great masses. To be or not to be an intermissivist is a personal and natural conclusion resulting from the study of the work. However, on each page, readers will find highly relevant themes to reflect upon and new techniques to implement to live with greater quality.

If the person took an Intermissive Course, why do they forget that when reborn?

When we are in the extraphysical dimensions, our true home or origin, we can manifest with a far superior level of clarity, insight, and intelligence. However, when we are reborn, those capabilities suffer a huge consciential funnelling, or restricting, due to the human body. So, the intermissivist forgets parts of what they studied in the Intermissive Courses, but keeps seeds or innate ideas within them that can be retrieved in time through self-effort to develop their intellectuality, bioenergies, and parapsychism.

Why is it important to know if we are intermissivists or not?

Firstly, to locate ourselves within the human life and identify our role within our family, social, and professional groups, and identify the directions to be taken within the life programming established before birth. Secondly, to meet with our colleagues from the Intermissive Course, with whom we have projects and commitments in common, joining efforts to conduct more comprehensive and complex tasks on behalf of Humanity. That is what we call the evolutionary group. As in any collective task, each person is a key to the success of the undertaking. When an intermissivist is not self-aware of their role and do not find their colleagues, their absence can affect the goals of the group.

Are intermissivists “chosen” or “special ones”?

Intermissivists are invited to be students of the Intermissive Courses for a special reason: they are personalities who have been prioritizing personal evolution and are willing to become more useful to the community, asking less for themselves and seeking to contribute to the environment into which they are inserted. Because of that,

being an intermissivist is not a matter of privilege, but one of personal merit. In a certain way, intermissivists are singular, because they had positively shown themselves in previous lives and have some baggage in their curriculum or merit that allows them to participate in Intermissive Courses.

What can we do to find out if we are intermissivists or not?

The first step is deep self-research. Try to coldly analyze your talents and virtues, but also your flaws and difficulties. Identify your personal values and intentions. Study bioenergies and develop greater sensitivity and parapsychic ability. With this, one tends to start to remember, little by little, intermissive lessons. In the book Intermissive Course you will find practical tips in each chapter to help you in this analysis. The book is based on the Intermissivist’s Test, composed of 10 questions to help you reflect on whether you are an intermissivist or not.

What would say to those people who identify themselves with these ideas?

Do not lose time! This human life is too valuable to be wasted. Try to study yourself and study new subjects that may clarify your doubts and widen your world view. Put your talents to work, helping those around you. We have a purpose, a mission, a task to be accomplished in this life. Read, question, experiment, acquire new knowledge and draw your own conclusions.
