    August 29 - September 2, 2022

    New Forest, England

    in-person, residential

    Sponsored by The Radix Institute, this workshop offers participants an extended experience of Radix work without the usual distractions of work, relationships and daily life issues. It is a great opportunity to learn more about yourself in the context of having fun and engaging fully with others.

    The STRUCTURE of the Workshop: We will begin on Monday evening with a group activity and opportunity for participants to meet with their Radix therapists. Morning group sessions and individual sessions will be led by advanced Radix trainees. The afternoon and evening group sessions will be led by Judy Stein, Certified Radix practitioner.

    GOALS: Radix practitioners work with workshop participants to restore the rhythmic flow of the radix throughout the body - both on its inward movement, enhancing self contact, and on its outward movement, enhancing contact with others. Working verbally and with the bodily processes of breathing, movement, sound, touch, and vision, therapists assist participants to discover experientially how their body structure and energetic patterns can interfere with the way they think, act and feel, and to restore and express their aliveness, finding new ways of being that serve their needs and desires more effectively in the world.

    WHO MIGHT BENEFIT? This workshop is

    ... a good introduction to our approach to personal growth if you haven’t experienced Radix work before.

    ... an excellent adjunct to regular individual work. Participating deepens personal work and offers you support from other group members. New issues different from those in individual work often arise because of the wide range of concerns of participants and the interactive nature of the weekend.

    ... a great opportunity if you are considering commencing the Radix training program

    The Radix approach can be applied to most challenges confronting all of us in living our lives more fully. However, people with ongoing mental illness or substance abuse, or a history of severe abuse or trauma, are advised not to attend.

    LOCATION: Avon Tyrrell Activity Centre is located in sixty-five acres of beautiful grounds in the New Forest National Park, located about 80 miles southwest of Heathrow airport.

    REGISTRATION:

    Early bird by May 15, 2022: £ 775

We will follow routes into the body through movement, sensing, breath, sound, and visualization, and out of the body through dance, drawing, writing, and performance. By exploring somatic experiences through the arts, we come into deeper connection with ourselves, our embodiment, our creativity, and ultimately, the world.

    Movement Ritual and Dance Explorations with Joy Cosculluela

    Exploring and Playing with Space

    In this workshop, we tune in to our kinesthetic sense and explore how we stand, move through space, and interact with the architectural elements in our personal space.

    Presented by Tamalpa Institute

    September 12, 19, 26, Oct. 3rd

    4 Mondays, 10 - 11:30 am Pacific Time, Cost: $70

    ONLINE

    In this workshop, we tune in to our kinesthetic sense and explore how we stand, move through space, and interact with the architectural elements in our personal space. We draw on Movement Ritual II, III, and IV for resources in our explorations. We pay attention to where we go and how we get there. We notice how we relate to our surroundings through our vision and notice the different feelings that come about. As we attend to our personal space, we also attend to our social space, the online platform that connects us and/ or challenges the way we connect with each other. We’ll explore our “edges” as we navigate this space and play with possibilities. As we invite attentiveness and curiosity in our dances, we also open to more aliveness in our daily lives.

    Participants will explore structured movements devised by Anna Halprin that enhance range of movement and spark creative expression. Drawing and writing enrich our movement experiences. Please have a comfortable space to move. Open to all. No dance or art experience needed.

    Joy Cosculluela, RSME, MFA, CMT is a performing artist, choreographer, bodyworker, and somatic movement educator. She is artistic director of Wayfinding Performance Group, a multicultural group of artists in San Francisco and has presented numerous works in various venues. She has performed with Anna Halprin & is core faculty for Tamalpa. wayfindingperformance.com

    Love Made Simple - Somatic and integrative couples counseling training 


    Short summary:
    A couples therapy training that is based on an integrative framework, bringing together somatics, mindfulness and personal growth aspects with a strong emphasis on developing the self of the therapist and their unique style. New practitioners will gain tools, strategies and confidence in couples counseling, while more experienced practitioners can expand their skills of working somatically and with mindfulness, as well as develop their therapeutic presence and intuition 


    Presented by: Gal Szekely, MFT and Liron Cohen, MFT . 

    Dates: weekly meetings from September 16th to November 11th , 2022. 


    Full description: 

    Couples therapy can be challenging even for seasoned therapists... It’s easy to feel lost, overwhelmed and even stressed. Still, it’s also a place for creativity, in which you can bring your unique style and life experience, and - most importantly - feel that you’re making a real difference in the lives of others.

    We created Love Made Simple as an integrative framework...

    It brings together the most important insights from leading couple therapy approaches (EFT, PACT, IFS, Hakomi and others) with our experience of working with over a thousand couples one-on-one and in our workshops.


    Somatic and Experiential

    Relationship patterns happen fast and in an unconscious way. An eye roll, a change of breath, a turn of the head can create an impact. Likewise, the therapist can use experiential exercises and somatic interventions to get beneath the words and the mind defenses and provide an embodied experience of change.


    Mindful and Growth-Oriented

    Using mindfulness enables people to slow down, develop self-awareness and learn to see their relationship challenges as an opportunity to grow. We believe that “secure attachment” is not enough and focus on relationships as paths of personal and spiritual growth.


    Intuitive and Structured

    Simple tools, maps and structured exercises help make couples therapy more effective and less chaotic. Yet, they are only effective if you combine them with deep attunement to the clients and learning to trust your own intuition.


    Therapist-Focused Rather than Technique-Focused

    We focus on improving the maturity and relational skill of the therapist and see them as important (if not more important) than learning techniques. We want you to develop your style of therapy, not follow a rigid method.



    Presenter Bios: Gal & Liron 

    We are psychotherapists, teachers, parents, business owners and university professors. But, (this is probably the most important part) we’re also a real couple who have different personalities, different likes and dislikes, yet we share a common vision.

    We started The Couples Center in 2011 and Love Made Simple in 2020 - this is how passionate we are about couples work! We’ve offer couples workshops (Level 1 & Level 2) for over 7 years, and we’ve built a comprehensive online course, plus several other mini-courses, as well as date-nights for couples.


    Gal is a recovered tech guy who became a tree hugger, somatic believer and a meditation enthusiast. He is a teacher of the Hakomi mindful somatic psychotherapy and of the Tamura Method of Conscious Energetic Touch in therapy, and he is an adjunct faculty at CIIS university. In his spare time, you will find him on the tennis court, trying psychological techniques to improve his forehand shots (or forehand shots to improve his psychology).


    Liron started as interior designer, but later realized she was called to transform the “interior design of the self.” She is known for her natural authenticity, intuition and ability to balance warmth and directness. She explores the realms of sound healing and shamanic hypnotherapy in psychotherapy, and she is also an adjunct faculty at CIIS university. She leads a couples-focused supervision group, as well as couples workshops. In her spare time, you will find her baking delicious desserts while holding a baby in one arm.


    Training schedule 

    Training include 52 live instruction time (28 hours online, 24 hours in-person) and 14 hours via a prerecorded online course.

    10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET

    Ancient myths and literature refer to three phases of female adult development as the maiden, the mother and the crone. In more recent years, we have taken the name of the crone, the archetype of the wise old woman, into the gender-neutral and more inclusive title of “the wise elder.” So we ask, “What defines a wise elder? How does one develop into a wise elder and how is the wise elder different from the ubiquitous “senior citizen” that so dominates the cultural language of today? In this online training workshop with Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, and Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we explore the language and the phases of role development with us – and invite participants to step into the gifts of aging with grace and learn to bridge the gulf between life and death.

    A professional training with four CE and Psychodrama credits exploring the role of "the wise elder"

    About this event

    Ancient myths and literature refer to three phases of female adult development as the maiden, the mother and the crone. In more recent years, the crone, the archetype of the wise old woman, has been transformed into the gender-neutral and more inclusive reference of “the wise elder.” So we ask, “What defines a wise elder? How does one develop into a wise elder and how is the wise elder different from the ubiquitous “senior citizen” that so dominates our cultural language today?

    In this online training workshop with Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, and Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we explore and experience the language and the phases of role development with us – and invite participants to step into the gifts of aging with grace and learn to bridge the gulf between life and death. We will use the action of psychodrama, the bonds of relationship through sociometry, plus music and the arts we will explore, honor, and celebrate the Wise Elder – and give you a multitude of ideas on how to integrate these concepts into your work with people of all ages.

    You will learn how to:

    • Identify where you are now as you relate to the wise elder role using Dr. J.L. Moreno’s role theory of development.

    • Understand basic correspondences of Dr. Moreno’s view with the perspective of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychoanalyst who first identified the archetypes.

    • Explore what aspects of the wise elder you already possess regardless of your current age.

    • Practice stepping into the wise elder role and experience through multiple psychodramatic techniques.

    • Explore how your near and far ancestors modeled for you the meaning of aging and how you can hold these meanings in an appropriate way for you in the 21st century.

    Art-making Project

    An art-making project – the making of a Wise Elder staff and accompanying rituals – will be integrated into the training class along with instructions on how to replicate the art-making project with the people you work with.

    You will receive a break for a short lunch 12pm -1pm with ample time to attend to your art-making project.

    After registration and before the class begins, you will receive a detailed list of art materials and found objects to have available to start your staff during the class.

    What to bring

    • A staff, a tree branch, long stick

    • Ribbons, string, cords, thin wire.

    • Assorted found objects such as old jewelry, pinecones, mementos, silk flowers, stones, crystals, little chains, beads, holiday ornaments and other objects that are meaningful to you.

    • A notebook if you wish to take notes.

    • Your curiosity, questions and enthusiasm.

    Who will benefit

    This training is designed for mental health professionals and professional helpers, including social workers, marriage and family therapists, licensed counselors, psychologists, addictions counselors, physicians, nurses, creative arts therapists, drama therapists, massage therapists and bodyworkers, alternative health practitioners, life and wellness coaches, educators, clergy, clinical supervisors, administrators, youth leaders, group leaders, graduate students and others interested in experiential psychotherapies and experiential learning.

      Short summary
      =============

      Bioenergetic Analysis was created by Alexander Lowen, M.D. (New York) in the 1950s. It is based on the work of Wilhelm Reich, a disciple and contemporary of Sigmund Freud.


      In this webinar, I will first describe the theoretical and practical Lowenian foundations of Bioenergetic Analysis: the energetic dynamics of human functioning, then its characterological organization in response to unresolved childhood conflicts and traumas.


      Then I will present the current evolution of Bioenergetic Analysis, enlightened by contemporary research in neurobiology, by work on trauma, by contributions from related theoretical and therapeutic fields, such as attachment theory.


      Learning objectives

      ================

      - Understand the specificity of Bioenergetic Analysis as a mind-body approach.

      - Discover the theoretical foundations of Bioenergetic Analysis.

      - Understand the specificity of the bioenergetic work method (technical, relational and experiential approach).

      - Present its specific therapeutic objectives working with inhibitions, conflicts, developmental traumas or factual traumas.

      Healing Ground Online Teacher Certification Training
      The Spiritual Psychotherapy aspect of the Realization Process

      Online With Judith Blackstone, PhD

      October 7, 2022 – April 14, 2023

      This training teaches the main Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening, and their application to personal maturity and psychological healing. Specific practices are taught for listening and responding to another person as fundamental consciousness, for subtle reading of constrictions and openness in one’s own and another person’s body, and for recognizing and releasing emotional wounds and trauma-based constrictions from the body. The Realization Process practices can help people access a dimension of themselves that has never been injured, that is deeper and more subtle than even the most strongly held negative beliefs, depression and anxiety. They also develop sensory and emotional resilience, grounding, self-possession, and self-acceptance. They can help sensitive people live more comfortably in the world.

      Format: 12 classes live on Zoom with Judith Blackstone. Fridays at 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern. Dates (some may change): October 7, 21, November 11, 18, December 2, 16, 2022, February 3, 17, March 3, 17, 31, April 14, 2023, 6 optional review classes live on Zoom with Candace Cave, weekly practice with a partner assigned from within the training group, monthly practice with someone from outside of the training group, eleven brief written reports/questions responded to by Judith via email, optional cohort practice groups.

      Requirement: five hours of previous experience with the Realization Process and one private session with a senior RP teacher. For workshop options: https://realizationprocess.org/schedule-of-events/ For senior teachers: https://realizationprocess.org/senior-teachers/

      Cost - $1400.

      10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET

      The “comfort eating” during the collective trauma of the pandemic has brought new attention to how we use food to regulate our mood at times of stress. Whether we have overindulged or restricted, become quietly sedentary or compulsively active, we can return to balance with body, mind and spirit. In this workshop, Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, take a look at struggles with eating and body image and show how psychodrama, sociometry and other action methods support stability and healing and renewal. Clinicians, wellness coaches and other healers will find practical treatment guidelines and clinically tested psychodramatic action structures for addressing eating disorders and body image distortion.

      Taking a fresh look at eating disorders and body image with tools to use and 3 CE and psychodrama hours

      About this event

      The “comfort eating” during the collective trauma of the pandemic has brought attention to the way we use food to regulate our mood at times of stress. Whether we have overindulged or restricted our food, become quietly sedentary or compulsively active, we can return to balance with body, mind and spirit.

      In this three-hour online workshop, Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, take a fresh look at struggles with disordered eating and body image and show how psychodrama, sociometry and other action methods continue to support stability and healing and renewal. This workshop provides clinicians, wellness coaches and other health professionals with practical treatment guidelines and clinically tested psychodramatic action structures for addressing eating disorders and body image distortion.

      Psychodrama and related experiential methods safely and effectively circumvent common emotional defenses with spontaneity and creativity. We discuss the neurobiology of the brain and nervous system and ways action methods rewire the brain. Participants will leave the workshop with a variety of experiential methods they can immediately apply in their practice settings.

      In this workshop, you will learn:

      • The importance of the gut-brain connection that contributes to disordered eating.

      • How to assess individuals and groups with action sociometry on a variety of themes and topics.

      • How to build group cohesion and reduce shame and isolation.

      • The use of the timeline to understand the progression of disordered eating, disordered activity and body image distortion.

      • The Three Faces of Eating Disorders as applied to collective and personal trauma.

      • The importance of self-compassion in addressing disordered eating and body image issues.

      Short summary

      =============

      At the very beginning of life, when an infant comes into the world in a cold and hostile environment, his young and fragile organism is profoundly impacted by the lack of a warm and safe “ground” supportive of his growth. Hence, the infant experiences a state of shock as he struggles to survive in an adverse environment. This primitive experience will shape his relationship to himself, to others, and to the world. 


      In this webinar we will explain the kind of family dynamics the schizoid person grew up in, and how the lack of safety affected him somatically, psychically as well as in his attachment pattern. We will discuss transference and countertransference issues that arise in the work with a person of the schizoid type. Finally, we will see how to create a safe therapeutic environment and how to use bioenergetic exercises to help that person reconnect with an inner experience of safety and aliveness. 


      Learning objectives

      ================

      1. Identify the family dynamics conducive to the elaboration of a schizoid structure from a bioenergetic perspective.

      2. Describe tension patterns and understand their relationship to the psychic organization of the schizoid structure.

      3. Understand the type of attachment pattern as well as the neurobiological implications related to the lack of a safe base early in life.

      4. Analyze transference and countertransference issues in working with Schizoid clients.

      5. Experiment various bioenergetic exercises designed to help patients feel the aliveness in their body.

      The 4-Year Practitioner Program is a comprehensive training experience leading to certification as a Core Energetics Practitioner.

      Highly experiential, this program is designed for students to develop in three distinct yet overlapping areas of competence.

      Theoretical Competence

      The curriculum provides the main theoretical & philosophical constructs that underly, support and define the Core Energetics evolutionary model.

      Personal and Spiritual Development

      The program provides a model for personal evolution, energetic integration and spiritual growth and develops the capacity for presence, open-hearted living and deeper engagement with all of life.

      Applied Methodology / Practical Application of Core Energetics

      The program provides the training needed for graduates to responsibly practice Core Energetics and be able to engage clients at every level of being (body, emotions, mind, will and spirit) to support both healing and the clearing of obstacles that hold humans back from bringing forth their inherent gifts.

      The first two years are pre-clinical years. Students develop a foundational understanding of the four-stage Core Energetics methodology as insight into human energy dynamics deepens. At the same time students actively engage in a conscious and embodied process of personal growth through self awareness and interactive participation in process group and in various exercises and experiences with the class and the community. Students in both programs participate in these two pre-clinical years together.

      Students gain an embodied understanding of the nuances of energy and consciousness as the building blocks of human experience. The character defense structures are explored, in all their physical, psychological and energetic manifestations, as keys to understanding human behavior patterns and as the source of most life issues—as well as an entrance into the individual’s unique gifts. Various layers of the personality: the mask, lower self and higher self are studied. Students gain fluency in identifying which layer they or others are acting from, while simultaneously understanding the impact this has on authentic presence and full engagement with life.

      The third and fourth years of the training emphasize the development of clinical skills in the student-practitioner. Themes that support clinical proficiency, such as; assessment, transference, countertransference, resistance, trauma work, working with groups, as well as many others, are explored. Students practice working with the body to release energy blocks, support flow and facilitate integration of newfound awareness. Personal growth is ongoing in classes, community events and process groups as students deepen self-knowledge, as well as integrate and embody the work. It is during this stage in the training that student-practitioners initiate work with clients under the guidance of a supervisor to gain competence in applying the methods in the practice of Core Energetics.

      This is an in-person program held at the retreat center Wisdom House in LItchfield, CT.

      The 2022-2023 program year starts in the autumn. The module dates are: October 21-23/24, 2022, December 2-4, 2022, February 17-19/20, 2023, April 14-16/17, 2023, June 9-11/12, 2023

      Application process can take up to 4 weeks

      Tuition is $4500.00/year

      Housing, Books, and Sessions approximately $3500.00/year

      Short summary

      =============

      When children first get on their feet and start walking, they get a whole new view of the world: Finally, being tall and independent! When the child's aspirations are pushed unilaterally by parents toward success, the child's basic needs and growth are hindered. This creates a basic attitude of holding oneself up, of controlling, of devaluating the other or oneself.


      This webinar will teach you the etiology of the Psychopathic Character, increase your senses for the expressions of and empathy for the Psychopathic Character, provide effective body orientated psychotherapeutic tools from a reflection of transference and counter transference with clients with a Psychopathic Character.


      Learning objectives

      ================

      1. Identify the dynamics of manipulation as well as exaggeration and humiliation.

      2. Describe the deep injuries of the psychopathic character structure.

      3. Apply techniques to accompany people with psychopathic character structure on their way to the ground of reality.

      Short summary
      =============

      With the neurological and muscular system maturation which allows controlling movements, exploring spaces, taking, and holding things in hands, controlling sphincters and all sort of actions “out of the mom’s lap” comes the need for self-determination and independence. It is the process of becoming a subject, separated from the object. This is a delicate moment also for the mother and the way she responds to baby’s sense of independence is going to be part of the way of being, and so the way of suffering, this new person is becoming.   


      Learning objectives
      ================

      1. Identify the family dynamics.

      2. Describe tension patterns and understand their relationship to the psychic organization.

      3. Understand the idea of way of being and way of suffering as a key to deal with the transference and countertransference issues in working with masochist patterns.

      4. Improve the understanding and the compassion as a therapist by understanding somatically the muscular and breathing patterns - experience how to move and express themselves inside those patterns.

      =============

      Alexander Lowen believed that our thoughts were so powerful that they formed energy patterns within the body to shape us. Liane Zink will finish the webinar series 2022 teaching about the last predominant character type: Rigid character. 


      A rigid character limits the energy flow in the body because as a child she/he was told "no" so often that she/he makes a commitment to control her/his world. Liane Zink will teach bioenergetic strategies to help rigid clients heal and how they can begin to enjoy the pleasure of not having to do anything.  


      Learning objectives

      ================

      1. Understanding the structure of Phallic and Hysterical characters according to Alexander Lowen and other authors.

      1. the specialized knowledge of the physiology and energy anatomy of prenatal and perinatal trauma and global high-intensity activation,

      2. the principles of physical and energetic regulation, and

      Persistent imprints from prenatal and perinatal traumas are often in the form of implicit somatic memories with a tendency towards global high-intensity activation in the central nervous system.

      This can lead to long-term symptoms such as anxiety, migraines, heart dysregulation, allergies, attachment and relational difficulties, and emotional difficulties such as persistent low self-esteem.

      Symptoms of prenatal and perinatal trauma and global high-intensity activation can also be seen in clients whose caregivers had activation from causes such as war; or in clients who did not have adequate interactive regulation from their caregivers early in their lives.

      If unresolved, they often form the template of how we are affected by later traumas and compromise our ability to cope with them.

      The course will cover the following topics:

      Major types of prenatal and perinatal trauma

      Existential terror, fragmentation, rage, and shame

      Physiological and energetic defenses commonly involved

      Global high-intensity of the central nervous system

      How to efficiently work with all of the above by building a greater capacity for a larger range of emotional experiences by using the body as a container

      The science of embodied cognition, emotion, and behavior

      The role of archetypes from Jungian psychology as resources for processing emotions

      Included…

      Lifetime online course access

      Three demonstrations
