Focusing in Daily Life Series: Reaching Across Differences

For many of us, the differences are in our own families. The people whose choices baffle us are our brothers and sisters, our children and our parents. And maybe it’s not about politics, but it’s about child-rearing, or about whether therapy helps, or whether forgiveness is possible. It hurts to be so far apart… estranged for years… is there any way to come together again?

In this seminar, I will offer some ideas about how to use Focusing when you want (or need) to have conversations with people who have different values and different assumptions from you. I will be joined by some people who have experience in this area, and I look forward to being inspired by what they share with us. We’ll come away with more hope and more possibilities for life-changing dialogue. Continue reading

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

Saturday, March 25, 10am-6pm & Sunday, March 26, 10:30am-5:30pm – 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. Continue reading

Living From Your Inner Voice with Helene Brenner, Ph.D.

Have you ever wondered if you could stay in touch with a deep sense of your true self – your Inner Voice – in your everyday life, so that you can access it whenever you need to? Continue reading
