The Rock and the Hard Place: Exploring the Gifts of Pain

September 19 to October 3, 2017 – 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.

Focusing in Daily Life Series: The Urge to Indulge

Webinar: July 25, 2017, 11:00AM – 12:30PM Pacific Time – “Why did I eat that cookie?” “Why did I take that third glass of wine?” “Why did I stay online so long and get to bed so late?”

Despite careful plans and good intentions, the urge to indulge can hijack us into doing something that we are sorry for later. For me, it’s usually when I am tired, at the end of a long day, that I can’t resist that bag of potato chips. I eat it all – and then instead of feeling good, I feel angry at myself for “pigging out” – and despairing of this habit ever changing. Continue reading

Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy: An Introduction to the Hakomi Method – Boulder, CO

The dynamic use of mindfulness is a foundation of the Hakomi Method. When introduced with Hakomi techniques, it creates a rapid, experiential access route to the unconscious “blueprints” and implicit
memories which invisibly shape our lives. When unconscious, this material creates projections, conflict and disharmony in our relationships and self-perceptions. Once conscious and directly experienced, it is available for transformation and the healing of attachment issues. Continue reading
