Meeting Format

This is a 6-Module,3 year Relational Wholebody Focusing Trainer Certification program that cultivates a wholebody heartfelt relationship with the Self, with Another Person, and with everyday adult life situations.    By the end of year 2, students achieve Professional Practitioner Certification in this method.  In Year 3, students receive ongoing mentorship support as they facilitate their own students in these same methods with paired Trainer Practicums.  

By the end of three years, students will have expanded their wholebody relational capacities in all kinds of life situations.We emphasize multi-dimensional experiential explorations of the relational interactions between students inside of safe wholebody We spaces.  Relational Grounded Presence, Wholebody Heartfelt Connection and Wholebody Heartfelt Conversation Life Processes will be practiced and refined.  In year One, we deepen beyond the conditioned Mind experience of Self by welcoming our coniditioning and habitual patterning as sources of Relational Body Wisdom.  We then co-emerge, through deeply embodied heartfelt interaction explorations, into the expanded and transformative experience of the  unconditioned Mind-Heart-Body awareness of our deeper Soul-Self.  Adult intimacy opens and expands its possibilities upon meeting another, as a natural and alive person, in this wholebody heartfelt way.
