    • Shrewsbury, Massachussets

    Please join us for this small group process.

    We will use Core Energetics’ techniques to help connect with the self and with others in an aligned way, while strengthening self-awareness, and body consciousness. Using movement, breath work and interactive therapy, we will explore the energetic blocks in the body that hinder self-development. Core Energetics’ is founded in Bioenergetics bodywork with an added spiritual component. It has been successful in treating depression, anxiety, and trauma. Bodywork with consciousness creates a rich experience unique to the individual. Core Energetics’ is a pathway to the True Self.

    The group will meet the first and third Tuesday of each month beginning in September in Shrewsbury, MA.

    The cost is $40.00 each group ($80.00 per month.)

    In this group, you will learn:

    • What your body structure reveals about your patterns of relating to the world, and what blocks in the body keep you from living your deepest purpose. 
    • What your higher-self aspects are and how these aspects can help to create the life and love you want. 
    • The connection between mind, body, and spirit and what keeps you from achieving wholeness.

    The benefits of group process:

    • Accelerates personal growth.
    • Provides a support system.
    • Creates a reparative relational experience.
    • A cost effective way to experience a powerful growth opportunity.

    Space is limited so please contact Anna Smith as soon as possible to reserve your seat and to schedule your intake interview at 508-735-3838 or asmith1459@gmail.com.

    Please join us for The Dreamwork Summit, a 4-day, no-cost online event, November 13-16!


    Are you listening to the messages from your soul?  Interviews with Indigenous healers, Jungian analysts, and Dreamworkers from many traditions will explore this deep, inner source of wisdom & guidance that unfolds while you're sleeping — in the form of symbols, images, landscapes, and emotions that are in service to your wellbeing, happiness, creative fulfillment, and that of the greater world. 

    I’m honored to be among 20+ teachers invited to share insights that will help you transform your relationship to your dreams (and to yourself) — and to heal, enliven, expand your life, and enrich your contributions in community.   I’ll share elements from DreamDancing, including video footage of working with dreams through embodiment and movement  (Wednesday, 11/14 @ noon PST). 

    If you miss any of the interviews you can access them for free up to 48 hours after airing, or tune in at your leisure by purchasing the full Summit via the Shift Network.   

    I hope you’ll join us for this inspiring online global gathering!  RSVP here for The Dreamwork Summit — at no charge:

    Meet Steve Hoskinson MA, MAT as he shares more on Organic Intelligence methods for treating stress, trauma, and PTSD. This will be an interactive webinar with question and answer opportunities as well.

    Please don't forget you have to register twice. First with us (the USABP) here and then with Zoom - using the zoom registration link we email you after your register with us. 

    What is Organic Intelligence?

    Organic Intelligence® (OI) is a unique theory and clinical practice of human empowerment, resiliency, and compassion to resolve the devastating effects of stress, trauma, and PTSD.

    The Organic Intelligence (OI) clinical protocol suggests that, from a systems perspective, what’s wrong with therapy is the focus on what’s wrong — including the focus on trauma.

    Organic Intelligence brings a necessary shift in perspective from pathology and trauma to the proven methods drawn from the wisdom of mindfulness and the science of self-organization.  OI teaches how healing happens from the nervous system up and makes it possible to imagine freedom from suffering. Freedom from suffering becomes freedom for living an authentic, vibrant life in the here-and-now.

    OI teaches therapists how to observe relevant client behaviors according to a very clear map. This mapping allows therapists to understand the nervous system state, and reveals what kind of intervention is most likely to support natural systemic reorganization.

    Rather than providing insight per se, Organic Intelligence aims to shepherd observable physio-emotional states according to a protocol which aligns with subtle, but naturally occurring organismic trends toward increased coherence — the rhythm of an integrative biology. We employ a ‘shaping’ paradigm of positive reinforcement — a true paradigm shift in trauma therapy.

    Organic Intelligence was developed by Steve Hoskinson, MA, MAT, who has trained thousands of practitioners and mentored trauma resolution instructors in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

    For a good example of Organic Intelligence, watch the Jada Video of Steve working with 3-year old Jada, the morning after choking and a subsequent traumatic hospital event. Bookmark the OI Blog to read Steve’s regular updates and discussion of the latest developments in Organic Intelligence.

He has a passion for helping men grow in their understanding of themselves and the meaning of their lives, particularly at the point of integrating experiences of success and failure, loss and grief, the evaluation of one’s life path, and the unfolding and embracing of new challenges and opportunities. While he has operated within the Christian tradition he incorporates the insights of other faith traditions as well as those which do not affirm any religious faith. Men of every background and perspective can support and uphold one another in making our lives meaningful and whole.

    Introduction to NARM Online Webinar: Working with Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    Wednesday, December 19, 2018 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST

    Online Webinar

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and clinical model for addressing complex trauma.  

    There are currently very few therapeutic approaches designed specifically to address developmental trauma.  With the ACEs Study, the Trauma-Informed Care movement, and the need for addressing complex trauma - including cultural and transgenerational trauma - as helping professionals we need to stay in front of this rapidly evolving field.  

    NARM is a perfect training for staying current and deepening your trauma-informed skills.  This cutting-edge model targets attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties. These early, unconscious patterns of disconnection deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships. Learning how to work simultaneously with these diverse elements is a radical shift that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma.  Based on the book by NARM Foudner Dr. Laurence Heller, Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship, NARM is geared toward supporting adults and couples in building greater capacity for self-regulation and interpersonal connection.

    This 2-hr online webinar will offer an overview of complex trauma from a NARM perspective.  While it is geared toward helping professionals working with complex trauma, anyone is welcome and can benefit from the information presented in the webinar.  Understanding and being able to work with developmental dynamics is critical for helping our clients, and ourselves, in the healing process.  We will look at how one’s life experience presents itself in the context of a complex, psychobiologically-driven relational framework that is often largely unconscious.  This framework, laid down by our early attachment experiences, shapes our development, who we are in the world (our Self), and how we relate to others.   When one is having difficulty shifting out of old patterns, these implicit dynamics are at play and must be addressed.  The NARM approach presents a dynamic model that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma.

    Webinar Format:

    • Overview of NARM’s theoretical and clinical approach to attachment, relational and developmental trauma
    • Complex Trauma: Differentiating between Shock and Developmental Trauma
    • Lecture and experiential exercises on each of the five adaptive survival styles
    • Video demonstrations of Dr. Laurence Heller using the NARM approach
    • Orientation to the NARM Practitioner Training Program
    • Q&As and Discussion

    NARM Practitioner Training - Palm Beach, Florida MODULE 1

    January 3, 2019

    Family First Adolescent Services – Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).  

    For more information: www.narmtraining.com


    Course Objectives:

    • A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).
    • How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
    • The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.
    • Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.
    • Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psychobiological symptoms.
    • How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.
    • When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.
    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.
    • A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.
    • A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    THE 25th IIBA International Conference

    The title of the Conference "A bioenergetic view of love, healing, connection and authenticity" highlights very relevant themes in a world which is changing too fast. People's lives are undergoing profound changes they may not understand. In many countries there are precarious economic and social conditions and the expectations for the younger generations are uncertain. People's inner landscapes have also changed, even more precocious forms of narcissism are present and pervasive, and traumatic attachments destroy the possibility of secure connections.

    All this invites us to reflect, to update our therapeutic practice in continuity with our theoretical model. Bioenergetic Analysis has much to say and to offer both from a therapeutic and from a sociological perspective.


    When: May 22 - 26, 2019
    Where: Torres Vedras (Portugal)

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).

    Course Objectives:

    • A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).
    • How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
    • The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.
    • Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.
    • Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psychobiological symptoms.
    • How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.
    • When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.
    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.
    • A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.
    • A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.
