Sex and Shame – A Workshop for Therapists and other Helping Professionals

Sexuality is a vital, defining part of our identity. We are at our most vulnerable when we experience sexual feelings—therefore we’re the most prone to feeling shame. We are subject to sexual shaming from early childhood, when we are most vulnerable to moral judgments from family and society—and to boundary violations from family members and those older than us. Entering our teenage years, we long to be attractive to others and try desperately to “be cool” and fit in. As adults, we seek a partner and try to balance the constraints of monogamy with sexual adventure. In our mature years, our ability to function sexually diminishes and our faces and bodies are no longer as we remember them.

In this workshop, we will offer tools you can use to help clients talk about, explore, and heal the sexual shame that can arise at any stage in the life cycle—and help them towards a life-affirming sexuality.

We will:
– Discover ways to help clients become aware of the many, often conflicting messages they received about body image and sexuality from family and society.
– Learn ways to help clients repair the disconnect between self and others—and between parts of the self—that have been created by shaming, inappropriate behavior, or abuse.
– Understand counter-shaming techniques and develop tools for couples to understand their shame triggers and communicate about taboo sexual topics.
– Work with the shame that can cause and result from affairs.
– Identify challenges in being a sexual minority in society and the layers of shame that can occur.
– Unfreeze shame and open life force in a grounded and embodied way, helping clients to access and safely explore their sexual energy.

Melting the Shame Freeze – Using Somatic Techniques to Create Safety and Build Attunement
A Workshop for Therapists and other Helping Professionals
With Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon PhD, SEP, BCC

Shame is an embodied belief that “Something is wrong with me.” Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is helpful for therapists to work with shame somatically. In this workshop, we will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance.

We will:
• Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of our own breathing and expanding it in the process.
• Learn ways to help clients repair the disconnect between self and others—and between parts of the self—that have been created by shaming, inappropriate behavior or abuse.
• Explore how to keep our clients more present in the room with us and counter over- verbalization, dissociation and freezing.
• Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of Somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing®), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi) and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).

M.E.T.A. weaves the classic Hakomi experiential, mindfulness-based psychotherapeutic method and the Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) existential and state shifting model, with current interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), attachment and trauma theories. M.E.T.A. embraces all this in an integrative framework that supports deep change. Relationship is the foundation of human development and of change in therapy. In this introductory workshop, Mindfulness, Relationship & Embodiment, offers a glimpse into the world of mindful, somatic, relational therapy. Using the Hakomi Mindful Somatic Therapy method as our base, and referencing attachment theory, participants will learn about and experience clinically applied mindfulness, explore how the body is a window into the unconscious, and practice explicit, nuanced ways to refine and enhance relational intelligence and skills.

In this dynamic workshop you will learn:

  • precise techniques for applying mindfulness in counseling
  • how to see the physical body as a source of psychological material
  • ways to explore client relational templates and support healthy attachment This workshop is appropriate for experienced and new therapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and graduate students in helping professions.

Mindfulness is the development of an alert inner quietness. It is turning away from the outer busyness and the automatic habits of our daily routine toward a deeper place of authentic feelings, ideas, needs, and resources. In the East, mindfulness has been a primary tool for spiritual exploration for thousands of years.

The Hakomi Method of Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy is at the forefront of exploring mindfulness as a primary tool for connecting consciousness and the body. The body is the medium for all human experience. It communicates to us in the language of sensation, tension, relaxation, movement, gesture, posture, and flow of qi. Our bodies have information for us about our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. In this workshop, we will learn ways to track, access and use bodily felt experience as a vehicle for lasting transformation.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – This workshop introduces participants to the basic principles and skills of the Hakomi Method to support personal and professional development. The goal of Hakomi is to uncover and alter unconscious motivations, beliefs and outdated frames of reference that negatively affect mood and relationships with self and others. The method uses experiments conducted in mindfulness and body awareness to gather information about unconscious processes. These techniques, coupled with the attuned presence of the therapist, access implicit memories and gently reorganize entrenched neural patterns.

In this workshop, you will: Learn how to turn awareness inward for self-study, and how mindfulness can infuse this exploration with a sense of curiosity and compassion. Explore ways the body archives experience and expresses our deepest beliefs about life. Practice using mindful experiments and the body to identify and eventually transform unconscious, limiting core beliefs.

The workshop will consist of a balance of talks, experiential exercises, discussion and personal reflection, with an emphasis on skills that can be readily applied following the workshop. This workshop offers the opportunity to experience the Hakomi method of psychotherapy. It is suitable for those working therapeutically with clients and those wishing to deepen their own self understanding. It will be of value to psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and other practitioners who are interested in learning more about Hakomi or are considering enrolling in the Hakomi Professional Training.

In this workshop:

Through talks, discussions and experiential learning, you’ll learn how to slow clients down, shift them into a mindful state, and study their emotional patterns right in the moment they’re happening.

Are you curious about ways to use mindfulness with your clients? Do you want more tools for including the body in therapy? Have you heard about Hakomi but haven’t had a chance to try it out?

Mindfulness, experiential exercises, and the body-mind connection offer direct access routes to clients’ unconscious material. Instead of just talking about things, clients experience them directly and therefore gain deeper insight as well as tools for change. This type of work creates aliveness and creativity for therapist and client alike.

This workshop is an opportunity to learn the basic skills of Hakomi, a method that has been utilizing mindfulness and the body for over thirty years.

In this workshop, you will learn:

Tracking and contacting: How to track and use somatic cues like tone of voice, gestures, facial expressions and body posture to access unconscious material
Mindfulness: How to assist clients to shift into a quiet, grounded state of consciousness that helps them to deepen their awareness and explore inner material that’s not easily accessible through other methods
Accessing: Steps for discovering the core issues that underlie your clients’ challenges
This is a hands-on workshop; you’ll have an opportunity to practice the skills you’re learning in a gentle and safe environment.

https://hakomica.org/what-we-offer/weekend-workshops/18-workshops/238-hakomi-essential-skills-1-27-18

Through lecture, demonstration and experiential exercises we will discover what habitually limits us deep inside and how to move beyond it. Moshe’ Feldenkrais, pioneer in the field of body psychology quipped, “You can’t do what you want until you know what you’re doing.” Hakomi helps us know what we are doing and how to mindfully find other more satisfying ways of being.

Cost is $250 if registered and paid by January 2, 2018. After that the cost is $285.

With Judith Blackstone, PhD
Part one: February 16-20, 2018; Part two: April 6-10, 2018

The Realization Process is an embodied approach to psychological and relational healing and nondual awakening. In this approach, the radical openness of nondual realization is based on deep contact with the internal space of one’s body. In this way, we discover an authentic, quality-rich experience of our individual being at the same time as we transcend our individuality. The Realization Process includes a powerful, precise method for recognizing and releasing psychologically based constrictions from the body.

Judith will teach the main Realization Process practices and their application for psychological health and maturity, including how they can help us cultivate resilience to emotional and sensory stimuli, integrate awareness, emotion and sensation, and experience deep connection with other people without losing inward contact with ourselves. She will also discuss how we create and bind constrictions in our body and teach the Realization Process release technique.

A high percentage of clients in outpatient treatment and a higher percentage of inpatients report histories of neglect, trauma, and/or attachment failure. In addition to being diagnosed with PTSD, this client population often presents as affectively dysregulated, chronically depressed, exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and borderline or other personality disorders. Level I of The Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to better understand the symptoms and issues of these challenging client populations and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of the presenting problems of these clients and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how their issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, students will be able to directly impact the direction of treatment not only for these client populations but also in their practice settings.

The Level I Training presents simple, body-oriented interventions for tracking, naming, and safely exploring trauma-related, somatic activation, creating new competencies and restoring a somatic sense of self. Students will learn effective, accessible interventions for identifying and working with disruptive somatic patterns, disturbed cognitive and emotional processing, and the fragmented sense of self experienced by so many traumatized individuals. Techniques are taught within a phase-oriented treatment approach, focusing first on stabilization and symptom reduction. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be easily and effectively integrated into psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR-focused treatments.

This Training consists of approximately 80 contact hours.

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy identifies two general kinds of interrelated psychological issues: developmental and traumatic. Developmental issues result from disturbed early attachment relationships that lead to limiting beliefs about oneself and the world. Post-traumatic stress disorder results from overwhelming experience that remains unintegrated. Early attachment disturbances can lead to a wide variety of adult relational problems, especially when combined with unresolved trauma.

Level II of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Training Program illustrates how traumatic, attachment, and developmental issues influence one another and how to provide effective treatment given their inevitable intertwining. In this training, research from the attachment and neuroscience fields provides the theoretical foundation for Sensorimotor Psychotherapy interventions and practices that address the effects of suboptimal and/or traumatic early attachment.

This introduction to HAKOMI MINDFUL SOMATIC PSYCHOLOGY is based on the notion that everyone with a conscience has an Inner Critic. This part of ourselves was formed in the psyche during childhood and it is trying to help us in our adult lives. Sometimes however, the Inner Critic becomes obstinate and overly critical especially of other Child Parts of the psyche. In this workshop we will utilize the Following Hakomi Principles to acknowledge, understand and hold compassion for the Inner Critic and the Wisdom of the Inner Child.

Introductory Workshops

Do you or your clients get overwhelmed too often by anxiety or fear?
Does anxiety choke off impulses to speak up or take action?
Would you like to discover a way to work with anxious feelings so that they release their grip?

You probably already know from experience that squelching unwanted feelings doesn’t work for long, right? And sometimes feelings go head to head in conflict, such as the feeling of anxiety and the wanting-to-be-rid-of-the-anxiety.

In this class, we use principles of the body-based method called Focusing to explore and practice techniques for relating to feelings differently, without being taken over by them. If feelings are messengers, they will release their grip when the message has been delivered – and the message will almost certainly not be exactly what you thought it was!
There will be a mix of ideas and experiential exercises, with opportunities for discussion.

November 2 to December 7, 2017
5 Thursdays, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM Pacific Time
Taught by Marcella Calabi. Live online course.
Cost: $195 through end of day October 12, 2017, $245 after.

Focusing has been linked in over 50 research studies with positive outcomes in therapy including greater emotional regulation, more satisfying relationships, and increased self-acceptance.

In the Focusing Training Program for Healing Professionals, you’ll discover an experiential, body-oriented process of self-awareness and emotional healing that you can immediately bring into your work with clients.

Create Better Therapeutic Relationships

What You’ll Learn:

  • a practical, step-by-step method for taking any problem or stuck situation and finding relief, insight, and new steps of action, so you feel bigger than your problems and in control of your life – and ways to help your clients do this too
  • a process that lets you help your clients be in touch with the very place in them with the potential to open up into flow, change, and new possibilities
  • a facilitative language that enables you to be supportive of your clients – and yourself – without pushing (and so without bringing up resistance)
  • a sense of greater confidence and ease that you can be available for what your clients are bringing and at the same time able to guide them to be present and available to themselves

An Evening of Breema
with Angela Porter, Carrie Gray, & Matthew Tousignant

Thursday, October 12 · 7:00-9:00 pm

Register online!

Interoceptive Movement for Self-Care & Transformation in the Therapeutic Relationship

Breema is a simple, natural form of touch and body movement supported by universal principles. The aim of Breema is to bring us to a tangible experience of presence that becomes our foundation for a new dimension of health, consciousness, and self-understanding. The practice of Breema is a direct approach to experiencing body-mind connection, and offers insight into the underlying unity of all life.

Breema self-care and partner movement exercises use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches, and rhythmic movements to create physical, mental, and emotional balance. Based on nine principles of harmony—- No Judgment, No Force, Single Moment/Single Activity, Body Comfortable, No Extra, No Hurry/No Pause, Firmness & Gentleness, Full Participation, and Mutual Support—- Breema’s commonsense wisdom guides the practitioner to support the body’s instinctive healing energy, nurturing vitality instead of focusing on symptoms of illness or imbalance. Issues including compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, stress, and burnout are mitigated, while empathy, acceptance, nonjudgment, and an atmosphere of aliveness are nurtured.

The nonjudgmental atmosphere created by our use of the Principles is deeply nourishing and enables us to let go of conditioned patterns, so that we can connect to new and more natural ways of moving, thinking, and feeling—- this is translated directly into our atmosphere as we work with clients. Breema’s Principles can be integrated and applied in any profession and in all activities of daily life, helping us to revitalize ourselves and bring greater harmony to all our relationships.

Join us for this 2-hour introductory evening workshop at the Expressive Therapies Summit. No prior experience necessary. Everyone Welcome! Come prepared to relax and enjoy!

How do you know if someone is right for you, or vice versa. Maybe he or she is a distancer, too needy, suppressing sarcasm, hostility, and anger, is not very sexual, or thinks about sex all the time.The workshop I am facilitating in Independence, near Cleveland, Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17 will teach you how to read bodies in order to understand if that person will be a help or a hindrance in your life. If you don’t live in Cleveland, fly or drive in and we will help you find a place to stay. If you have friends in Ohio tell them about this great opportunity to learn how to do Core Energetics body readings to improve their lives.

The body is an authentic expression of your physical, emotional, and mental state. Your present personality, current stressors, as well as past trauma is reflected in your body. As a body reader and energy psychologist with classes around the world I will teach you how to tap into the body’s great knowing so you can flesh out your ability to attune to another.

At some point we have crossed paths. And, since the body is ever-changing and ever in need of new considerations the role of this work that I have been teaching for many years is definitely suited for you today, too!

The body is a powerhouse. It reveals information about:

● a person’s wounds
● prior history
● present day struggles
● higher-self qualities, potential and capabilities

I am offering a course in body reading this coming September. It is the one of the few I will be doing this year as I am busy with my 2-year professional program starting up again this coming fall of 2017! 
Body readings can help your goals to:
●      Enhance and grow business relationships
  •  Nurture therapeutic relationships
  • Increase the pleasure of social relationships.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn:
* The basics of how to conduct a body reading
* Interpreting what the body is revealing
* How to approach a body reading with sensitivity
* How to receive a person in their wholeness
* How to sensitively communicate or use this information
When:
Saturday, September 1610:00am to 6:00pm and Sunday, September 179:30am to 5:00pm
Workshop Fee: Early Bird $249 before August 1 or Standard Fee $299 after August 1 ** Workshop fee applied to registration fee for anyone who applies and is admitted to the Cleveland Core Energetics Training Program.

Tinas Pre-Conference Workshop: 8/25,  9:30am – 12pm & 1:30pm – 4pm

Embodied Alchemy®: Awakening Spirit in the Body

“Our task is not to create more images of light, but to release the light that is trapped within the darkness.”               ~ C.G. Jung

How do we evoke the light in the dark body? How do we embody the soul spark, bring it to consciousness, and live it more fully in our daily lives?

In this workshop, we will explore the impactful role of embodied experience and the spiritual dimensions of the healing process.  Participants will have an opportunity to engage the Alchemical metaphor in relation to the embodied individuation process in healing and development. Elements from Jungian theory will be interwoven and further integrated through movement, drawing, and discussion.

The Alchemists’ aim was to study nature and to learn from its profoundly regenerative capacities, discovering the ‘gold’ in matter.  Alchemy’s basic elements can deepen our understanding of embodied transformative processes, experienced spontaneously through natural movement rooted in Jung’s Active Imagination process.

These practices bring awareness to what we least value, ‘cooking’ unwanted material to generate new life.  Alchemy provides an ancient map of the stages in the individuation process: our journey to wholeness. Such a map can help orient people in their therapeutic work, particularly when they are immersed in unconscious material that may cause feelings of anxiety, impatience, or dissolution.

 

Tinas Keynote Session: 8/27,  9:30am – 10:30am (Panel: 11am – 12pm)

Body & Soul in Transition

“The symbols of the Self arise in the depths of the body.”        ~ C.G. Jung

Alchemy is most often understood as a primitive scientific attempt to create elemental gold, yet alchemy also sought the ‘inner gold’. So too, modern psychotherapy has the capacity to transform prima materia, the unwanted material of everyday life, into something meaningful, thus helping us find the ‘gold’ in the shadow.

In this presentation images will be shown from a painter’s journey in becoming her true self, the treasure we all seek. Her images take us from life’s earliest beginnings, through the stages of growth, death, dismemberment, despair and new life reshaped by the transformative elements of fire, water, wind, and earth. Here we see the alchemical process at work. Participants will have an opportunity to witness the process as a whole, and to engage the alchemical metaphor in relation to bodily experience.

Conference Information:

The ancient art of alchemy – the transformation of base materials into a nobler form – continues to captivate the imaginations of artists, poets, scholars, seekers – and depth psychologists.  One of the earliest material technologies found throughout the world, many alchemical traditions over time developed into highly elaborate esoteric systems until nearly being eclipsed at the dawn of the modern scientific era.  C.G. Jung was synchronistically introduced to Daoist alchemy through Richard Wilhelm’s translation of The Secret of the Golden Flower, catapulting Jung into the world of alchemy, capturing his imagination and profoundly influencing his scholarly output for the remainder of his life.

This weekend symposium draws upon the rich influence of Jung’s alchemical psychology, while expanding it for a new generation of scholars, seekers, and practitioners. Scholars of alchemy and Jungian analysts of international renown join to offer diverse perspectives of cross-cultural alchemical systems and their implications for analytical practice and personal growth and transformation.

Join us at Pacifica for this inter-disciplinary odyssey into the rich and diverse worlds of alchemy and depth psychology as they are brought into creative dialogue.

Focusing has been linked in over 50 research studies with positive outcomes in therapy including greater emotional regulation, more satisfying relationships, and increased self acceptance.

In the Focusing Training Program for Healing Professionals, you’ll discover an experiential, body-oriented process of self-awareness and emotional healing that you can immediately bring into your work with clients.

Create Better Therapeutic Relationships

What You’ll Learn:

  • a practical, step-by-step method for taking any problem or stuck situation and finding relief, insight, and new steps of action, so you feel bigger than your problems and in control of your life – and ways to help your clients do this too
  • a process that lets you help your clients be in touch with the very place in them with the potential to open up into flow, change, and new possibilities
  • a facilitative language that enables you to be supportive of your clients – and yourself – without pushing (and so without bringing up resistance)
  • a sense of greater confidence and ease that you can be available for what your clients are bringing and at the same time able to guide them to be present and available to themselves

Join Lucinda Hayden for 5 Tuesdays, September 19 to October 17, 2017. 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM Pacific Time. Course taught by Zoom, an online video conference platform. Cost: $395 during early registration. Free intro webinar available. 12 CE Units offered.

Being in pain can feel like being between a rock and a hard place.
The Rock: I am in pain. The Hard Place: I want it to stop.

Is the struggle with pain a daily reality for you? Or for any of your clients?

Does pain ever feel like a punishment or a burden?
Is physical (or emotional) pain simply too much sometimes?

Pain and the struggle to not be in pain can dominate our daily reality. The thoughts: “What if this goes on forever?” and the feelings: worry, anxiety, depression, despair – compound the pain itself and sap our energy. Emotional pain can be as bad as physical pain, dragging us down and fogging our brains.

When our clients are in pain, it can be much harder to do the work of therapy.

Does it have to be that way? Wouldn’t it be great if our life energy and our unquenchable spirit could emerge, stronger than the pain? And if we could help our clients find that life energy and spirit? If we could find a way to do that, then in a real way even the pain would have a gift in it.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to stop fighting with pain
  • How to use body awareness to track physical symptoms and monitor what kind of help and support is needed
  • The problem with the word “pain” and how the language we use can change our internal experience
  • How to give emotional (or physical) pain the space it needs to change without being forced
  • How to get in touch with the resources you really have that have been masked by the pain
  • Discover the Focusing-oriented way to work with pain. Learn it for yourself and explore how it might be useful for your clients.
