Where & When
We invite you to join us on a transformational journey into unpacking the wounds of complex trauma. We learn essential skills for working safely with dissociation, memory time zones, regression, vicarious trauma, emotional and physiological regulation, the therapeutic relationship, integrating disowned parts, grief and loss, spirituality, and ritual.
We deepen our Focusing-Oriented Therapy and healing skills as we explore trauma through the understanding of neuroscience, Gendlin’s philosophy and psychology, mythology, Indigenous psychology, and spirituality.
Reflection on our own experiences of being wounded will inform and transform as we engage in readings, presentations, demonstrations, experiential exercises, group work, movement, and coached FOT sessions with one another.
You will learn to read the body of a client, and smoothly dip in and out of regressed states without re-traumatization. Special emphasis is placed on embodied practices for self-regulation and relational presence within the healing dyad. Working with a small supportive group, you will deepen your skills and integrate this transformational process into your life and work.
This training requires an interview and commitment to all five workshops.
