    Touching Developmental Trauma™ NeuroAffective Touch® Foundation Training
    Presented By: Dr. Aline LaPierre

    Short Summary:
    The NeuroAffective Touch Foundation Training integrates the use of touch with psychodynamic psychotherapy to work with developmental, emotional, and relational trauma. We address the key somatic and touch skills necessary to work with attachment deficits and emotional traumas that cannot be reached by verbal means alone. The training is useful to mental health, somatic, and touch therapists who want to integrate the body-mind connection in the resolution of developmental distress and trauma.

    SHORT SUMMARY:
    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.

    Level 1: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy - Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory

    Presented By: Esther Perez, MA LMFT

    Over 3 modules -

    Module 1 Start Date: Mar 26, 2020
    Module 1 End Date: Mar 29, 2020

    Module 2 Start Date: May 07, 2020

    Module 3 Start Date: Sep 10, 2020
    Module 3 End Date: Sep 13, 2020


    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    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.

    The Hakomi Character Map

    SHORT SUMMARY:

    The Hakomi Character Map training details a complete set of character strategies—patterns of behavior, feeling and cognition that determine much of what happens in our internal and external lives. Many of the most difficult issues we confront in our personal and professional lives are linked to the unconscious strategies that keep us feeling stuck, small, afraid, and unlovable, to name a few.

    Presented by: Shirley Bar-Dvir, MA, LMFT

    Dates

    April 3-5,

    May 1-3,

    June 5-7, 2020

    Times Friday 12:30-5:00, Saturday 9:30-5:00, Sunday 9:30-5:00

    The Hakomi Character Map training details a complete set of character strategies—patterns of behavior, feeling and cognition that determine much of what happens in our internal and external lives. Many of the most difficult issues we confront in our personal and professional lives are linked to the unconscious strategies that keep us feeling stuck, small, afraid, and unlovable, to name a few.

    Changing these patterns is possible through awareness, practice and experience. The Hakomi Character Map offers a kind of precision in accurately recognizing the patterns. In addition to detailing the character map, this training will provide practical Hakomi tools to allow for deep and permanent shifts within the psyche.

    Identifying these patterns and learning how to work with them, offers psychotherapists and other helping professionals a guide to the essential issues of human growth and change.

    What You Will Learn

    This training will support you to recognize commonly encountered character strategies/patterns through lecture, demonstrations and experiential exercises. For each type we will explore:

    Etiology/developmental causes

    Underlying emotional world and core beliefs

    Body language and postures

    The visceral feel of each strategy from inside the experience

    Strengths and positive qualities

    Relational habits, trances and projections

    How to apply specific Hakomi interventions for each strategy

    From the Instructors

    How we respond to life is a complex weave of emotions and beliefs often rooted in what we have learned at each developmental milestone. The experiences of early childhood shape our minds and bodies in unique yet collectively recognizable patterns. The purpose of this training is to provide the opportunity to learn, by "walking in another's shoes." We will understand the developmental journey as we uncover the universal responses to how we are attached, loved, received, related to in our lives. This training will give you a deep understanding of people’s actions towards and feelings about themselves and others. The method of study is powerful, imaginative and accessible.

    For Whom:

    Anyone interested in personal and spiritual growth or improving effectiveness with clients, including:

    Psychotherapists, psychotherapy students and interns

    Coaches and other helping professionals

    Body workers and somatic coaches

    Health practitioners

    Spiritual counselors

    Online Workshop: Moving Within by Natan Daskal

    Connect with us on Zoom from anywhere in the world to remember your body, recapture your creativity and renew your spirit. 

    Fridays from 10-11:15am PST beginning April 3rd, 2020 through May 29, 2020

    Register here.

    As we come together for this workshop from within our own homes, we will take the time to slow down, stand on the ground beneath us, listen to the wisdom of our bodies, and express ourselves creatively through dance. This weekly series of online classes is founded on the work of Anna Halprin and the Tamalpa Life/Art Process, using anatomy-based movement improvisation, somatic exploration, and creative expression to connect more deeply with ourselves, our global community, and even our sense of place. Each session will end with a drawing exercise based on your movement experience during the class.

    To get the most out of this online class, please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for the drawing activity.

    An online event

    The more we care about each other, the more vulnerable we are to shame. Intentionally or unintentionally, we poke each other in the tender spots. In this workshop we will explore the blame/shame game people who care about each other can fall into and learn how to help them stop shaming each other and work together to create a secure base and heal the wounds of the past.

    We will:

    • Look at some of the many subtle ways shame can be triggered.
    • Explore shaming moments with great care so we can teach our clients how to avoid shame-based reactivity.
    • Learn the gentle art of counter-shaming and how to avoid triggering feelings of inadequacy in yourself or in another person.
    • Talk about, have compassion for and heal past shaming incidents within the relationship.
    • Help each person to understand, have compassion, and be there for each other—to learn to face the shame dragon together, to avoid shaming in the present and heal shame from the past.

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    The NARM Therapist Training is an advanced clinical training designed to enhance the skills of professionals who work with developmental trauma. The training is intended for mental health practitioners with an active practice so the material presented in each module can be applied and developed. Graduate trainees and interns actively seeing clients are welcome to apply.

    Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, and may include a personal interview with a NARM faculty member.

    NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is an advanced clinical training for mental health and somatic practitioners who work with developmental trauma. NARM addresses relational and attachment trauma by working with early, unconscious patterns of disconnection that deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships. Integrating a psychodynamic and body centered approach, NARM offers a comprehensive theoretical and clinical model for working with developmental trauma.

    NARM draws on psychodynamic models such as attachment and object relations theory, somatic models and character structure approaches, in addressing the link between psychological issues and the body. Working relationally in the present moment, and within a context of interpersonal neurobiology, NARM offers a new approach of working relationally that is a resource-oriented, non-regressive, non-cathartic, and ultimately non-pathologizing model. Grounded in mindfulness and contemplative spiritual practices, NARM supports a non-western orientation to the nature of personality. Learning how to work simultaneously with these diverse elements is a radical shift that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma and supporting personal and relational growth.

    In the NARM Practitioner Training, you will learn:

    The different skills needed to work with developmental versus shock trauma; when and why shock trauma interventions may be contraindicated in working with developmental trauma.

    How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions, such as toxic shame and guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, 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 developmental 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.

    Presenter Bio: Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC, SEP, NMT is a NARM faculty trainer. Brad has studied under his mentor Dr. Laurence Heller for nearly 20 years and is a NARM Practitioner and Consultant. Brad is also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Consultant and Instructor. Brad began his career as a Humanitarian Aid Worker in Asia which introduced him to personal and collective trauma. He became passionate about supporting individuals and communities in the transformation of trauma. Brad has since focused his work on the integration of Somatic Psychology, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and wisdom from Spiritual Traditions and Traditional Cultures. Brad lives in a small town in Northern California with his family where he is a Somatic Psychotherapist, College Professor, and International Presenter on Shock and Developmental Trauma.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:
    The End of Trauma™ Course is a 9-week online course that teaches tools and practices that work specifically and directly with the biology to get people out of suffering and onto the path of deeper healing.

Your nervous system wants to heal - and here we will deepen into the tools and strategies for making that happen.

    The course will feature weekly live coaching and weekly live webinars with OI Founder, Steve Hoskinson. He will speak directly to you on the science behind each week's topic, offer guidance on how to get the most out of the week's practices, and answer your questions.

    Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory

    SHORT SUMMARY:
    This 80-hour training in Affect Regulation, Attachment, and Trauma equips therapists to make sense of the symptoms and issues of traumatized clients and to work with them in a more effective way. With a better understanding of how trauma is remembered and equipped with interventions that speak directly to how post-traumatic issues are driven by the body and the nervous system, you will discover new and deeper ways of helping clients resolve the traumatic past.

    Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Level I Training
    Affect Dysregulation, Survival Defenses, and Traumatic Memory

    Presented By: Esther Perez, MA, LMFT
    Presented By: Kekuni Minton, PhD

    3 Modules: MARCH 5 - JUNE 7, 2020
    Module 1: Mar 05 To Mar 08, 2020
    Module 2: Apr 02 To Apr 05, 2020
    Module 3: Jun 04 To Jun 07, 2020

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    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.

    USABP Spotlight Webinar Series brings you a presentation from The Life Centered Therapy Training Institute founder Dr. Andrew Hahn. 

    There will be a one hour of demonstration of the work with full community participation. See details below.*

    If you'd like to be a participant in the experiential process section of this program please email, liam.b@usabp.org.* 

    Dr. Hahn asserts we can change the past because it is living in the present. What we have to do is master in the present what couldn’t be handled and integrated in the past.

    So what creates healing? When there is something that can’t be handled, in that moment an uncomfortable Sensation is born. If we can choose to bring all of our awareness and focus all our attention and become the sensation from the inside out, then we are aligning with Life and the Witness, and we can choose to be the One who is bringing awareness to, holding, hosting, and re-membering the stuck energy as it reveals itself to us as physical discomfort. We then go from being the one who is identified with the one who is traumatized to the One who is remembering that one. As soon as we do that, we become free of the past.

    *Live Demonstration ... Experiential Overview

    Andy will be doing a demonstration of the work as part of the webinar. He will do a session with one of the participants.

    All the participant has to do is be willing to have their work be witnessed by everyone in the group. All members of webinar also will be participating in the work and potentially doing their own work.

    Andy has done many live demonstrations at conferences all over the world. No demonstration subject has ever asked to stop the work and, if the demonstration subject wishes to stop the work, they get to decide.

    Andy will invite the person who is working to just share what they would most desire to get from the session if they could have anything they intend, even if they weren't sure it was possible. He will then take them on a journey to where their blocked intention originated and have the participant transform it at root cause.

    Dr. Hahn maintains a private practice in Waltham MA and trains mental health professionals in mind-body and psychospiritual approaches to healing trauma.

     Main Points of Workshop

    • How to do trauma therapy without every re-traumatizing our clients!
    • Why regression therapy is NOT regression and why this is so important.
    • Why there is no such thing as resistance, only reliving. When we bring awareness to what we are re-living we go from identifying with the one who is traumatized to identifying with the One who is re-membering them.
    • Everything the client does or says is part of the therapeutic process, literal, a re-living of a trauma and not a commentary on the therapy in the Here and Now.
    • Every client, without exception, can experience the body and be in their body. You only need to know how to do it.
    • Learn a new way of understanding the theory behind trauma therapy and the profound implications and applications for a work that can be immediately integrated into our practice.

    Our work as therapists is to discover:

    • What the true underlying blocked intention is and not necessarily just focus on the symptoms that are manifesting in the client’s life. The symptoms often are clues to the underlying intention
    • What the root cause of the trauma is.
    • What is required for healing if awareness and sharing the traumatic story is necessary and not sufficient.

    Agenda

    Introduction and Presenter Interview about their journey and vision for our field - 10 minutes.

    A Talk about the nature of Life, and its implications and applications for trauma therapy. 30 minutes

    A demonstration of the work with full community participation. 1 Hour

    Q and A and Conversation. 20 minutes


    Learning Objectives. Participants will learn:

    • A new way of understanding the theory behind trauma therapy and the profound implications and applications for a work that can be immediately integrated into our practice.
    • A method to heal trauma efficiently, effectively, and elegantly without re-traumatizing the client and without the need for slowly titrating the therapeutic process
    • How to have clients experience their body and be in their body-even if on the surface they see to be dissociated or “out of their body”
    • How to use the content the client brings to the session that they may think is a commentary on their therapeutic process, as a window into what they are unconsciously reliving and rapidly accelerate their healing and growth
    • How to work with clients who say they have difficulty being in their body because they are feeling numbness, “nothing” in the body, or feelings of emptiness. Hint, the key is paradoxical; those feelings that the client attributes as being blocks to sensing their body actually ARE body sensations created from trauma and the key to their healing

    License, Massachusetts Psychologist, 1987. Hahnemann University, Psy.D., Clinical Psychology, 1985. Harvard College, B.A., Magna Cum Laude, Social Studies/Psychology, 1979.

    Andrew Hahn, Psy.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist. He received his A.B. Magna Cum Laude in Social Studies/Psychology from Harvard University and his Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Hahnemann University. He is certified by Helen Palmer to teach the Enneagram and has also been a faculty member in the graduate Counselling Programs at Lesley University and Northeastern University.

    While Dr. Hahn’s strong foundation and significant experience in traditional psychology has served his clients well, he has been untiring in his effort to better understand what is going on for people so that he could better help them live more contented and healthier lives. This calling for greater understanding, as well as certain experiences which he could not fully comprehend within the confines of traditional Western paradigms, led him on a search for answers that opened him to the worlds of Buddhist and Eastern Psychology; Mystery Trainings; and Depth, Archetypal and Spiritual Psychology.

    In 1997, after several years of witnessing the power of the work, Dr. Hahn developed the Life Centered Therapy Training program for those who want to facilitate and/or teach this process. Today, Dr. Hahn has a private practice in Waltham, MA; speaks, teaches and leads trainings and healing groups internationally; and continues his effort to better understand what is going on for people so that he can better help them live more contented and healthier lives.

    Our relationship with our body is our first and most important relationship. Yet many people feel uncomfortable in their own skin. When we are able to live in our bodies instead of hiding from them, we are able to have relationship with ourselves and then with others.

    This workshop focuses on aspects of body image and embodiment, including working directly with eating disorders. It will include theory and also be a process group with an experiential component. We will explore embodiment through somatic embodied processes, expressive arts and drama therapy. We will learn to help the client listen to the secret conversations inside, because those conversations have to do with perfectionism and shame.

    You will learn to help clients:

    • Move beyond the toxic shame into healthy shame that can allow healthy nourishment and pleasure.
    • Talk to the inner child at different ages.
    • Identify a kind inner coach.
    • Learn mindfulness techniques to feel into emptiness and fullness.
    • Work with the secret conversations inside.
    • Develop and/or deepen the relationship a person has with her body, which begins with kindness.
    • Learn to gently open to feeling the vital life force through embodied journal writing and movement, and through exploring the body’s story of embodiment.

    There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

    Judith Blackstone will teach all aspects of the Realization Process: meditation, embodiment, relational attunement and the release of trauma-based constrictions from the body. This is a chance to do deep, intensive practice of the Realization Process in this spectacular natural setting on Whidbey Island, complete with gardens, a labyrinth and hiking trails.

    Event - Jun 17 - 21, 2020

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    The Realization Process is an embodied approach to psychological and relational healing and spiritual awakening. Judith Blackstone will teach all aspects of the Realization Process: meditation, embodiment, relational attunement and the release of trauma-based constrictions from the body. This is a chance to do deep, intensive practice of the Realization Process in this spectacular natural setting on Whidbey Island, complete with gardens, a labyrinth and hiking trails. 

    You will learn a series of powerful but gentle, precise attunement practices for realizing your own nature as fundamental consciousness– an undivided expanse of luminous transparency, pervading your body and environment as a unity.

    Pervading your body, fundamental consciousness is the basis of your sense of existing as an individual. It deepens and refines all of your human capacities: for physical sensation, emotional responsiveness, understanding, and perception. It opens you to your innate happiness. Pervading your body and environment, fundamental consciousness is the basis of an actual experience of oneness with everything around you. It enriches and refines your contact with other people and with all of nature.

    The Realization Process includes the Healing Ground, a unique approach to psychological and relational healing by applying fundamental consciousness to the release of psychological holding patterns.


    Presenter Bio:

    Judith Blackstone, PhD, developed the Realization Process, a method of embodied psychological and relational healing and nondual spiritual awakening. She is the author of Trauma and the Unbound Body, Belonging Here, The Enlightenment Process, The Intimate Life, and The Empathic Ground. She is retired from forty years as a psychotherapist in private practice. An audio series of the Realization Process is available from Sounds True.

    Trauma-Safe Series: Nurturing Our Well-Being

    SHORT SUMMARY:

    There are so many complexities of living with health challenges. Just to have someone who can really hear and understand these complexities is the first support. Paula DeMasi has lived these challenges. She found Organic Intelligence® and OI Founder Steve Hoskinson, who provided maps of well-being that finally made sense. Connect with Paula and Steve, and others who have found support for well-being, and get your own map for your own unique path of well-being.

    Presented by: Organic Intelligence® Founder Steve Hoskinson
    And also Presented by: Paula DeMasi, PhD

    Monthly Webinar

    Each month Paula will share a key theme that can help you navigate toward feeling better and living better. It might be reflections on grief, on navigating the health care system, on daily living skills, on relationships, and more...

    Getting Together

    In-between the monthly webinars, join Paula and OI Expert Nathan Rehm, who are happy to talk with our growing community. Live, online, in person — you can ask questions and share your experience of NOW. Participate as much or as little as you like — listen in or check in. Only you know what’s best for you. We’re honored to be a part of this journey with you.

    A Bounty of Compassion

    To nurture our well-being, we are constantly honing what is too much — even of a good thing — and what is just right. Steve says, “Nothing is achieved by trying too much.” We’ll provide you with maps that will help you get the feel of the sweet spot of “just right” — which we often discover by doing too much, and then too little. That’s the honing process!

    When It's the Right Time for You

    We’ll offer you a LOT of resources, including links to websites, relevant research, interviews with experts, recorded meditations, writings, etc. We understand the impulse to get better can be like deep hunger, and once you find something that really helps, there’s a temptation to overindulge. Take time, and let the resources we provide be part of your practice of finding the sweet spot for input of not too much and not too little. Everything will be right here, recorded for you — when it’s the right time, for you.

    Spirit of Sharing

    Nurturing Our Well-being is offered in the spirit of both generosity and reciprocity. If you can give support for the many programs we freely offer in these challenging times, thank you. Your membership helps provide care for many others who may not be so fortunate at this time. In these days we discover again and again how we each need one another. Choose a level of monthly membership that reflects you best, and that you can feel good about. If you need support, then be blessed with the gratitude for compassionate provision. If you can provide support, accept deep gratitude on behalf of others. Your compassionate participation, at any membership level, supports all of our Trauma Safe™ programs of compassion. Your monthly membership can be changed as needed, at any time. You are wholly welcomed into this community of sharing, where the opportunity of sharing heartfulness is the greatest gift.

    Find Your Joy: An Introduction To Body-Psychotherapy
    Presented By / Facilitated By: Aylee Welch, LICSW

    This experiential workshop will give participants the opportunity to experience the basic premises of Somatic Psychotherapy that originated with Wilhelm Reich and now integrates Core Energetics and contemporary approaches including body-oriented approaches and current neurobiology and trauma therapy. The workshop combines lectures with movement and experiential opportunities. I also bring my understanding of many other practices to employ creativity and spirituality to enhance the journey.

    About the Presenter:
    Aylee Welch has been working with people in therapeutic environments, and writing and teaching since 1989, and has been certified in Core Energetics and Core Soma since 2006. Aylee is an Independent Clinical Social Worker licensed in Washington, California and Oregon.

    Day 1 Event Date: Jun 20, 2020
    09:00 AM to 06:00 PM

    Day 2 Event Date: Jun 21, 2020
    09:00 AM to 04:00 PM

    EVENT DETAILS

    Traditional psychotherapy works toward congruence in a person’s thinking, emotions, actions, and life choices. Body-oriented therapy understands that the body is also profoundly affected by our life experiences. Identifying and releasing attitudes and old images held in our physical structure adds an important component to therapy. This promotes lasting change, allowing for free flow of life energy from within us so we can more fully realize our life, our joy.

    This experiential workshop will give participants the opportunity to experience the basic premises of Somatic Psychotherapy that originated with Wilhelm Reich and now integrates Core Energetics and contemporary approaches including body-oriented approaches and current neurobiology and trauma therapy. The workshop combines lectures with movement and experiential opportunities. I also bring my understanding of many other practices to employ creativity and spirituality to enhance the journey.

    Pilgrim SoULL, Weekend 2 - Racine, Wisconsin

    The Nature of Relationship

    SHORT SUMMARY: Students will examine how they develop, get ill, heal, inevitably end and also live forever. The inevitable experience of grief will be explored, as well as attachment, breakups, and the components of good and bad endings. In this weekend, we study the Horizontal Pulse, the Vertical Pulse, and the Dual Pulse, patterns of natural life movement within a relationship. In sum, we will be studying the energetics of human relationship and how they effect our bodies.

    Presented by: Jeanne Denney, Director, School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL)

    FIRST DAY EVENT: Jul 09, 2020

    LAST DAY OF EVENT: Jul 12, 2020

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    The School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL) is a multi-level somatically focused program about human life which helps you take your own life and work to a new level of depth and presence. SoULL’s primary task is to connect human helpers, healers and creatives with wisdom teachings sourced from the natural world so that they first recognize themselves and others as natural and find radical applications of this awareness. We live in much greater separation from Nature in our time than any other time in history. We seldom recognize ourselves as being actually a part of it. We fear change and death to extraordinary degrees, and resist the natural changes of our bodies, psyches or relationships. SoULL is a remedy for this distress that powerfully changes student’s outlooks on their own life and how professionals approach their human service work.

    Level 1 - Pilgrim SoULL is a 100+ hour program that runs (generally) from spring to fall. A primary goal of Pilgrim SoULL is to teach students to recognize the deep, energetic patterns within the life of the human being regardless of culture or race. It teaches how life energy naturally shapes us through every stage of bodily life, including its end. I call this our common human “Life Language”. It presents radical insights, not only on individual human life, but on relationships, community, and the deep, intrinsic connection between them. In its essence, Pilgrim SoULL is an initiation which teaches about birth, death, all that is between and after, the body, energy, how we grow, change, connect, release, die and love.

    Level 1 takes place over three residential weekends with distance learning and group dialogue in between.

    Weekend 2 THE NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP: July 9-12, 2020 will be held at the DeKoven Center in Racine Wisconsin

    Presenter Bio: Jeanne Denney is a transpersonal and somatic psychotherapist, educator, a hospice worker, healer, and author of The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying. She works in many venues to help people fearlessly embrace a life which includes aging and dying. Jeanne has spent years at bedsides, contributed pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, death and grief work, and been deeply involved with creating the Art of Dying projects in New York City. Her insights on energy and the body through aging, illness, and dying are derived from a wide lens of human experience and deep understanding of our mortal journey.

    Tamalpa Experience: Life/Art Dances with Rosario Sammartino

    **We are announcing upcoming programs with awareness and the understanding that we may need to cancel programs in responsible action to safeguard the health of all in our community. We are staying updated and current with all of the latest news on a daily basis.

    Held at the historic Mountain Home Studio, Kentfield, California

    15 Ravine Way 
    Kentfield, CA 94904

    How does your life shape your dance? How does your dance shape your life? How can movement inspire and renew your creativity?

    In the Tamalpa Life / Art Process, movement and life are intertwined. The body contains our life experiences and movement is our primary language. When we dance, we say something about our lives. When we dance our lives, we also connect with the creative forces that live within and open to new ways of expressing who we are.

    In this introductory workshop, participants are introduced to The Tamalpa Life/ Art Process, an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, and life experiences and art making. Using somatic-based movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art’s symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.

     A Theoretical and Experiential Exploration of Body-Based Sex Therapy

    Presented By: Stella Resnick, PhD

    SUMMARY:

    The ERST training integrates body-based Gestalt therapy, sex therapy, couples therapy, and interpersonal neurobiology. ERST is a holistic body-mind approach to individual and couples’ sexual enhancement through present-centered experiential processing, breath awareness and intention. The work is supported by the latest developments in neurobiology, grounded in an understanding of human sexual biodiversity, and attuned to the critical roles of pleasure and play in healing, health, and happiness.

    Presenter bio:

    Stella Resnick, PhD is a clinical psychologist, trainer, author, speaker, and AASECT-certified sex therapist and supervisor. She trained with both Fritz and Laura Perls and many other early pioneers in body psychotherapy. She has been studying interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory since 2001 and has been in a peer study group with Allan Schore for ten years. Her full-spectrum approach (cognitive-somatic and experiential-behavioral) focuses on the quality of life and health benefits of not only resolving chronic emotional pain but also specifically enhancing the capacity to enjoy pleasure and play. She views sexuality holistically, as a core aspect of the whole person and recognizes sexual development, and sex-negative or positive programin,g as intricately intertwined with the self-development from infancy, through childhood, adolescence, and throughout the lifespan.

    Short Summary: Throughout times movement, dance and the expressive arts have provided individuals and communities with a means of soulful expression, healing and connection with the spirit. This workshop will generate opportunities for participants to find such meaning connected with the real issues in their lives.

    Event Description:

    Throughout time movement, dance, and the expressive arts have provided individuals and communities with a sense of soulful expression, healing, inspiration and connection with community and spirit. In our lives today, we need to reconnect in these ways.

    In this workshop, movement, drawing, poetic narrative, individual and group dance, reflective exchanges, performance and witnessing practices will generate new thresholds of exploration and expression. Away from the distractions of daily life, there will be time to feel and listen deeply to the powerful intelligence of the body, to play and express with imagination through the arts.

    Morning sessions will begin with somatic awareness, individual and group movement exploration to tune the physical body to sensation and feeling. Afternoon sessions will facilitate creative encounters with the art mediums of dance, drawing, spoken and written narrative in explorations of relevant themes and personal life experiences.

    Participants will:

    -Develop body/mind awareness and connection

    -Expand creative expression through art-making

    -Learn how movement/dance and expressive arts can be applied to their personal process and professional practices

    -Experience improvisation and performance designed for the beginner and the experienced alike

    -Explore old material in new ways

    -Generate new resources to bring into daily life

    This workshop is designed for everyone. No previous experience in dance or art is needed.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    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.

    Experiential Therapy Training Program - Third Year Cohort

    Incorporating the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and indigenous practices, students of SSBP's integrative certification program gain a strong foundation from which to organize their approach to clients. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening the client's perception to the greater world around them as well as to their own unique offering which I call "Referencing From the Self".

    Presented by: Aylee Welch, LICSW

    Event Date: Sep 07 - 11, 2020
    Times:  9am to 6 pm

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: As a therapist, I consider myself a tracker, scouting reaction patterns that are experienced on all levels of our physiology. At SSBP, we hone our tracking skills to understand the original needs of our defensive patterns, discerning the reasons behind the current form. Meeting these needs in their original energetic allows for new perceptions and experiences to arise. Through patient observation and awareness we learn specific interventions in a combination of individual and group therapy. We also teach how to gently open the physical system to dissolve the limitations created through holding patterns developed over decades.

    As an Herbalist and Ceremonialist the program is truly an integrative mind-body therapy training. I bring teachings on basic health and its effect on our well-being, and the power of the Imaginal Realm and its role in healing. Graduates will gain skills to assess from a body-oriented viewpoint based on the tradition of Core Energetics, to organize information and back up their choice of interventions through the treatment plan over time. An additional Practitioner's Skills track is available for attendees who do not already work in the profession in order for them to achieve Certification.

    Class Topics

    Tracking ~ Developing Heart Perception ~ The Yes and the No ~ Body-Reading ~ Core Energetics and The Work of Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen and John Pierrakos~ Character Structure and its Application in the 21st Century ~ The Segments of the Body and Their Impact in Perception & Life Patterns~ Leading Safe Process Groups ~ Herbs for Mental Health ~ Working From Within the Imaginal Realm and Its Affect On Neuroplasticity ~ Ceremony for Health and Healing ~ Current-Diagnostics in a Larger Context ~ Somatic Therapy Approaches ~ Counter-Transference in Body-Therapy ~ Working with Dreams and Imagery ~ Trauma & it's Treatment ~ Working With Our Many Internal "Parts" ~ Clearing Spaces Internally and in the Environment ~ Interpersonal Work in the Group Setting ~ Movement to Impact Body Structure ~ Referencing From the Self

    Presenter Bio: Aylee Welch has been working with people in therapeutic environments, and writing and teaching since 1989, and has been certified in Core Energetics and Core Soma since 2006. Aylee is an Independent Clinical Social Worker licensed in Washington, California and Oregon.

    Tamalpa Experience: Life/Art Dances with Joy Cosculluela

    Presented By: Tamalpa Institute
    Facilitated By: Joy Cosculluela

    Short Summary:

    In this introductory workshop, participants are introduced to The Tamalpa Life/ Art Process, an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, and life experiences and art-making. Using movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art’s symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.

    Joy Cosculluela, RSME, MFA, CMT draws from her rich background as an artist-woman-immigrant-bodyworker whose dance practice is inspired by the indigenous practice of wayfinding, the process of navigating our relationship to the environment. Performance as an act of staying present, navigating the known and the unknown, showing up with curiosity, courage, and compassion.

Using movement, drawing, poetic writing, and improvisational performance, participants will tap into art’s symbolic language to explore current life themes and generate new resources.

    Event Description:

    How does your life shape your dance? How does your dance shape your life? How can movement inspire and renew your creativity?

    In the Tamalpa Life / Art Process, movement and life are intertwined. The body contains our life experiences and movement is our primary language. When we dance, we say something about our lives. When we dance our lives, we also connect with the creative forces that live within and open to new ways of expressing who we are.

    In this introductory workshop, participants are introduced to The Tamalpa Life/ Art Process, an approach that enlivens dialogue between body and imagination, and life experiences and art-making.

    Trauma-Safe Series: Nurturing Our Well-Being

    SHORT SUMMARY:

    There are so many complexities of living with health challenges. Just to have someone who can really hear and understand these complexities is the first support. Paula DeMasi has lived these challenges. She found Organic Intelligence® and OI Founder Steve Hoskinson, who provided maps of well-being that finally made sense. Connect with Paula and Steve, and others who have found support for well-being, and get your own map for your own unique path of well-being.

    Presented by: Organic Intelligence® Founder Steve Hoskinson
    And also Presented by: Paula DeMasi, PhD

    Monthly Webinar

    Each month Paula will share a key theme that can help you navigate toward feeling better and living better. It might be reflections on grief, on navigating the health care system, on daily living skills, on relationships, and more...

    Getting Together

    In-between the monthly webinars, join Paula and OI Expert Nathan Rehm, who are happy to talk with our growing community. Live, online, in person — you can ask questions and share your experience of NOW. Participate as much or as little as you like — listen in or check in. Only you know what’s best for you. We’re honored to be a part of this journey with you.

    A Bounty of Compassion

    To nurture our well-being, we are constantly honing what is too much — even of a good thing — and what is just right. Steve says, “Nothing is achieved by trying too much.” We’ll provide you with maps that will help you get the feel of the sweet spot of “just right” — which we often discover by doing too much, and then too little. That’s the honing process!

    When It's the Right Time for You

    We’ll offer you a LOT of resources, including links to websites, relevant research, interviews with experts, recorded meditations, writings, etc. We understand the impulse to get better can be like deep hunger, and once you find something that really helps, there’s a temptation to overindulge. Take time, and let the resources we provide be part of your practice of finding the sweet spot for input of not too much and not too little. Everything will be right here, recorded for you — when it’s the right time, for you.

    Spirit of Sharing

    Nurturing Our Well-being is offered in the spirit of both generosity and reciprocity. If you can give support for the many programs we freely offer in these challenging times, thank you. Your membership helps provide care for many others who may not be so fortunate at this time. In these days we discover again and again how we each need one another. Choose a level of monthly membership that reflects you best, and that you can feel good about. If you need support, then be blessed with the gratitude for compassionate provision. If you can provide support, accept deep gratitude on behalf of others. Your compassionate participation, at any membership level, supports all of our Trauma Safe™ programs of compassion. Your monthly membership can be changed as needed, at any time. You are wholly welcomed into this community of sharing, where the opportunity of sharing heartfulness is the greatest gift.

    The Radical Aliveness approach to personal growth, spiritual development, and social awareness is a unique group process that welcomes powerful feelings and dynamic group interactions. We work with the personal, interpersonal, and systemic to invite profound healing on every level.

    Participants will work with blocks to life, facing conflict head-on, and opening to the unpredictable energy of life. Everyone will be encouraged to bring their voice, their energy, take risks, be emotionally honest to help build a dynamic group process where every member is an essential part of the whole. This process is unlike group work you’ve done before, demanding courage, committed engagement with others, and a strong desire to discover and develop your potential within an accelerated, intense time frame and setting.

    Experiential Therapy Training Program - Second Year Cohort

    Incorporating the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and indigenous practices, students of SSBP's integrative certification program gain a strong foundation from which to organize their approach to clients. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening the client's perception to the greater world around them as well as to their own unique offering which I call "Referencing From the Self".

    Presented by: Aylee Welch, LICSW

    Day 1 Event Date: Sep 28, 2020

    Day 2 Event Date: Sep 29, 2020

    Day 3 Event Date: Sep 30, 2020

    Day 4 Event Date: Oct 01, 2020

    Day 5 Event Date: Oct 02, 2020

    Times:  9am to 6 pm

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: As a therapist, I consider myself a tracker, scouting reaction patterns that are experienced on all levels of our physiology. At SSBP, we hone our tracking skills to understand the original needs of our defensive patterns, discerning the reasons behind the current form. Meeting these needs in their original energetic allows for new perceptions and experiences to arise. Through patient observation and awareness we learn specific interventions in a combination of individual and group therapy. We also teach how to gently open the physical system to dissolve the limitations created through holding patterns developed over decades.

    As an Herbalist and Ceremonialist the program is truly an integrative mind-body therapy training. I bring teachings on basic health and its effect on our well-being, and the power of the Imaginal Realm and its role in healing. Graduates will gain skills to assess from a body-oriented viewpoint based on the tradition of Core Energetics, to organize information and back up their choice of interventions through the treatment plan over time. An additional Practitioner's Skills track is available for attendees who do not already work in the profession in order for them to achieve Certification.

    Class Topics

    Tracking ~ Developing Heart Perception ~ The Yes and the No ~ Body-Reading ~ Core Energetics and The Work of Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen and John Pierrakos~ Character Structure and its Application in the 21st Century ~ The Segments of the Body and Their Impact in Perception & Life Patterns~ Leading Safe Process Groups ~ Herbs for Mental Health ~ Working From Within the Imaginal Realm and Its Affect On Neuroplasticity ~ Ceremony for Health and Healing ~ Current-Diagnostics in a Larger Context ~ Somatic Therapy Approaches ~ Counter-Transference in Body-Therapy ~ Working with Dreams and Imagery ~ Trauma & it's Treatment ~ Working With Our Many Internal "Parts" ~ Clearing Spaces Internally and in the Environment ~ Interpersonal Work in the Group Setting ~ Movement to Impact Body Structure ~ Referencing From the Self

    Presenter Bio: Aylee Welch has been working with people in therapeutic environments, and writing and teaching since 1989, and has been certified in Core Energetics and Core Soma since 2006. Aylee is an Independent Clinical Social Worker licensed in Washington, California and Oregon.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    The NARM Therapist Training is an advanced clinical training designed to enhance the skills of professionals who work with developmental trauma. The training is intended for mental health practitioners with an active practice so the material presented in each module can be applied and developed. Graduate trainees and interns actively seeing clients are welcome to apply.

    Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, and may include a personal interview with a NARM faculty member.

    NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is an advanced clinical training for mental health and somatic practitioners who work with developmental trauma. NARM addresses relational and attachment trauma by working with early, unconscious patterns of disconnection that deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships. Integrating a psychodynamic and body centered approach, NARM offers a comprehensive theoretical and clinical model for working with developmental trauma.

    NARM draws on psychodynamic models such as attachment and object relations theory, somatic models and character structure approaches, in addressing the link between psychological issues and the body. Working relationally in the present moment, and within a context of interpersonal neurobiology, NARM offers a new approach of working relationally that is a resource-oriented, non-regressive, non-cathartic, and ultimately non-pathologizing model. Grounded in mindfulness and contemplative spiritual practices, NARM supports a non-western orientation to the nature of personality. Learning how to work simultaneously with these diverse elements is a radical shift that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma and supporting personal and relational growth.

    In the NARM Practitioner Training, you will learn:

    The different skills needed to work with developmental versus shock trauma; when and why shock trauma interventions may be contraindicated in working with developmental trauma.

    How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions, such as toxic shame and guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, 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 developmental 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.

    Presenter Bio: Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC, SEP, NMT is a NARM faculty trainer. Brad has studied under his mentor Dr. Laurence Heller for nearly 20 years and is a NARM Practitioner and Consultant. Brad is also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Consultant and Instructor. Brad began his career as a Humanitarian Aid Worker in Asia which introduced him to personal and collective trauma. He became passionate about supporting individuals and communities in the transformation of trauma. Brad has since focused his work on the integration of Somatic Psychology, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and wisdom from Spiritual Traditions and Traditional Cultures. Brad lives in a small town in Northern California with his family where he is a Somatic Psychotherapist, College Professor, and International Presenter on Shock and Developmental Trauma.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    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.

    Integral Somatic Psychology™ Professional Training - Austin, Texas
    Module 1: The Physiology of Emotions

    Integral Somatic Psychology™ is a new paradigm in body psychotherapy based on the emerging neuroscience of embodied cognition, emotion, and behavior. It offers all therapies including all body psychotherapies a complementary modality for reducing treatment times and improving cognitive, emotional, behavioral, relational, and spiritual outcomes; through developing a greater capacity for a comprehensive range of emotions including the often overlooked but always present sensorimotor emotions.

    Presented by: Dr. Raja Selvam


    EVENT DESCRIPTION: MODULE 1 • The Physiology of Emotions

    Working with Emotions with Greater Efficiency through the Science of the Physiology of Emotions and Principles of Energy Psychology.

    This course has been designed to help improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in all therapies on the basis of emerging evidence-based theories of embodied cognition, emotion, and behavior in neuroscience. We will study the findings on how cognition, emotion, and behavior depend not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment; how the three are inter-related in the physiology of the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment; and how emotion and the body’s involvement and capacity for emotion are important for improving cognition, emotion, and behavior. We will also study the older and newer findings on the physiology of emotions in depth in relation to the physiology of self-regulation. We will study and practice clinical strategies that can potentially help all therapies to improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes in their work by involving the body more in a broader range of emotional experiences (primary, secondary, and always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions). In addition, we will also study how energy psychology can be used to further improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes through emotional embodiment.

    In the first module of the course, the focus will be on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature of the legs, the arms, and the head and neck areas in the body. In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, introductory work with two layers of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named ether and air, will be presented.

    Module 1 Course Content:

    1. Basic principles of Integral Somatic Psychology: Increase in capacity for emotion through its embodiment as the core clinical strategy in ISP. Working with psychological, physiological, and energetic defenses against emotion to expand and deepen the emotional experience in the body and to build a greater capacity for tolerating it. Scientific evidence for the effectiveness of emotional embodiment in improving cognitive, emotional, and behavioral outcomes.

    2. Working to improve self-regulation as well as emotional regulation across the three layers of the physical body:

    • The muscular system governed by the somatic nervous system
    • The viscera governed by the autonomic nervous system
    • The central nervous system and structures that surround it.

    Presentation of a model of regulation with seven easy-to-learn flow patterns to regulate the physiology during cognitive, emotional, and behavioral work without compromising or eliminating the very psychological experience one is working with, a common problem in some body-oriented and energy-oriented approaches in psychology.

    3. The role of the body in psychological experiences: The seven basic dynamics such as constriction/flaccidity and hyper/hypo arousal through which the three layers of the individual physical body are used to generate as well as defend against different psychological experiences such cognition, emotion, and behavior. Theoretical and empirical evidence for these common dynamics from scientific research in academia and clinical research in body psychotherapy traditions.

    4. Affect theory: Theories of affect and affect development. Levels or types of affect. Affect and psychophysiological disorders. Relevant research.

    5. Choice of tools: Awareness, intention, imagination, breath, sound, movement, self-touch, touch of another, bodywork, and energy work as clinical tools that can be used appropriate to the therapist’s training, preference, and licensure context. Understanding of the relative advantages, disadvantages, and limitations of each tool.

    6. The role played by the muscular system in generating as well as defending against psychological experiences: The psychological functions of the muscles of the legs, arms, head, face, and neck areas. Relevant research and techniques for working with muscles during psychological work.

    7. Introduction to the role of the energy body in psychological experiences. The heart center, the air element, and their physiological and psychological functions. Working with the zones of the air element in the physical body to bring about greater balance between cognition and emotion in psychological work using the basics of Polarity therapy.

    FIRST DAY AND TIME OF EVENT: Oct 08, 2020
    LAST DAY AND TIME OF EVENT: Oct 11, 2020


    EVENT DESCRIPTION: The School of Unusual Life Learning (SoULL) is a multi-level somatically focused program about human life which helps you take your own life and work to a new level of depth and presence. SoULL’s primary task is to connect human helpers, healers and creatives with wisdom teachings sourced from the natural world so that they first recognize themselves and others as natural and find radical applications of this awareness. We live in much greater separation from Nature in our time than any other time in history. We seldom recognize ourselves as being actually a part of it. We fear change and death to extraordinary degrees, and resist the natural changes of our bodies, psyches or relationships. SoULL is a remedy for this distress that powerfully changes student’s outlooks on their own life and how professionals approach their human service work.

    Level 1 - Pilgrim SoULL is a 100+ hour program that runs (generally) from spring to fall. A primary goal of Pilgrim SoULL is to teach students to recognize the deep, energetic patterns within the life of the human being regardless of culture or race. It teaches how life energy naturally shapes us through every stage of bodily life, including its end. I call this our common human “Life Language”. It presents radical insights, not only on individual human life, but on relationships, community, and the deep, intrinsic connection between them. In its essence, Pilgrim SoULL is an initiation which teaches about birth, death, all that is between and after, the body, energy, how we grow, change, connect, release, die and love.

    Level 1 takes place over three residential weekends with distance learning and group dialogue in between.

    Weekend 1: THE NATURE OF BEING HUMAN is offered twice this year, in two locations. See our additional advertisement for registration about these events:

    STONY POINT CENTER in Stony Point, New York: April16-19, 2020

    DEKOVEN CENTER in Racine, Wisconsin: May 14-17, 2020

    Weekend 2: THE NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP: July 9-12, 2020 is being offered in Wisconsin only. See our additional advertisement for registration about this event.

    Weekend 3 THE NATURE OF COMMUNITY : October 8-11, 2020 is being held at the DeKoven Center in Racine Wisconsin.

    Presenter Bio: Jeanne Denney is a transpersonal and somatic psychotherapist, educator, a hospice worker, healer, and author of The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying. She works in many venues to help people fearlessly embrace a life which includes aging and dying. Jeanne has spent years at bedsides, contributed pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, death and grief work, and been deeply involved with creating the Art of Dying projects in New York City. Her insights on energy and the body through aging, illness, and dying are derived from a wide lens of human experience and deep understanding of our mortal journey.

    Module Two: Sept. 10, 2021 – June 12, 2022

    Structure:

    The Comprehensive Training has been revised to cover more material than in previous trainings. We still have two modules, but Module One has an additional weekend now. So, we now convene for 19 weekends total instead of 18.

    Module One, offers a thorough grounding in the theories and techniques of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychology. Module Two presents an advanced level of the work including a developmental model of character structure, basics about trauma and the body, increased practice session time, feedback for practitioners (strengths and growing edges), ethical issues and support, and guidelines for certification as a Hakomi Practitioner.

    For Whom

    This training is for professional therapists and counselors, healing arts practitioners, coaches, students of counseling and psychotherapy, interns, educators, clergy and people transitioning into the field of body psychology who want to learn the method in its entirety.

    Prerequisites

    A two day Hakomi workshop or class with Hakomi Institute SW faculty

    A completed application including recent photo and resume or vitae

    A non-refundable application fee of $85.00

    An in person interview with HSW faculty

    In some situations, the Institute may require additional information from an applicant, an additional interview with the HSW faculty or the completion of specific additional learning.

    What You Will Learn:

    In this hands-on, experiential training, you’ll learn how to:

    Energize and strengthen your work using Hakomi’s inspiring principles like mindfulness, nonviolence, organicity, mind-body holism and unity

    Use mindfulness to identify and transform hidden core beliefs driving self-defeating behavior

    Gain greater self-awareness by mindfully studying your own limiting reactive patterns

    Work from a compassionate, nonjudgmental state that helps clients feel safer and go deeper

    Apply unique and innovative methods for melting client resistance and overcoming impasses in your work

    Description of Module One:

    Module One includes in-depth coverage of the Hakomi principles, Hakomi theories, maps and models as well as specific techniques. Training weekends include a mix of didactic material, experiential exercises, discussion, movement/embodiment exercises, group maintenance time and supervised practice times.

    Description of Module Two:

    Module Two offers a developmental theory of character including specific stages of development and learning tasks associated with each stage. A general understanding of Attachment Theory is included. In addition, students are taught basics about traumatic activation: how to recognize it, how to resource someone dealing with it and when to refer to more specialized body-centered practitioners.

    Module Two also includes more advanced practice and integration of the Hakomi method.

    Course Requirements:

    In addition to regular attendance, there are monthly reading assignments and monthly peer study groups. Since proficiency with the method comes through practice, it is highly recommended that students arrange practice sessions with appropriate volunteer clients. Upon graduation, those meeting the above requirements will receive a Certificate of Completion. Qualifying as a Certified Hakomi Therapist or Certified Hakomi Practitioner is competency based. This usually involves advanced supervision from the Hakomi faculty including video session review.

    Integral Somatic Psychology Demo - Chicago, IL
    Presented by: Dr. Raja Selvam

    This is demo is followed by a weekend workshop. 

    How to work with the effect of trauma on development and attachment with greater efficiency through emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance

    The workshop will demonstrate how to improve outcomes and shorten treatment times in working with attachment issues through: 1) a differentiated understanding of how developmental and shock trauma can affect developmental tasks in stages of early childhood development (existence, need, autonomy) and cause variations in a person’s attachment style (avoidant, ambivalent, disorganized); and 2) the tools of emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance from Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™).

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: The workshop is offered in one 3-day workshop. Optional demonstration day offered ahead of workshop (October 16).

    WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

    How an insecure attachment style (avoidant, ambivalent, or disorganized) shows up as specific adulthood difficulties depends on the stage of childhood in which the developmental or shock traumas affected our relational capacities and the specific developmental tasks affected in that stage of development.

    This three-day workshop will describe and demonstrate how to work with adult relationship difficulties differentiated in terms of attachment styles and various developmental tasks in at least three early stages of development using clinical strategies of inter-personal resonance and emotional embodiment from Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™), a modality based partly on emerging paradigms of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive neuroscience and psychology.

    • Learn to work with avoidant, ambivalent, and disorganized styles of insecure attachment and their variations that are often in the form implicit sensorimotor emotional memories through emotional embodiment and inter-personal resonance.

    • Learn to identify and work with the different developmental tasks or functions in at least three early stages of childhood development (existence, need, and autonomy) the wounding of which by developmental and shock traumas determine specific vulnerabilities driving the insecure attachment styles.

    • Learn how to access and work with a wider range of emotions especially sensorimotor emotions in relation to attachment and relationship from the very first session with a client.

    • Learn how to help clients work through and develop a greater capacity for extremely difficult emotional experiences having to do with attachment and relationship faster by using the body as container and regulator.

    • Learn how to improve your ability to regulate your client emotionally through embodied attunement, a very important component of effective attachment work, through specific skills of inter-personal resonance.

    • Learn about how the emerging paradigms of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive neuroscience and psychology can help improve outcomes and shorten treatment times in all therapies including body-oriented modalities such as Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy®, through embodiment of a greater range of emotions from the very first session with clients.

    In the three-day workshop, Dr. Raja Selvam will cover all of the above topics. The format of the workshop will be lectures, live demonstrations with workshop participants (at least two per day), questions and answers, and short, guided dyadic and group exercises to make the workshop experiential for the participants as well as to manage activation among them. To impart as much knowledge as possible during the short three-day workshop and to accommodate participants with varying levels of expertise, there will be no lengthy practice sessions among participants.

    Experiential Therapy Training Program - First Year Cohort

    Incorporating the work of Wilhelm Reich and Core Energetics with contemporary therapies and indigenous practices, students of SSBP's integrative certification program gain a strong foundation from which to organize their approach to clients. The result is as spiritual as it is psychological, opening the client's perception to the greater world around them as well as to their own unique offering which I call "Referencing From the Self".

    Presented by: Aylee Welch, LICSW

    Event Date: Oct 22 - 26, 2020
    Times:  9am to 6 pm*
    *Note: Oct 24, 9am to 9pm

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: As a therapist, I consider myself a tracker, scouting reaction patterns that are experienced on all levels of our physiology. At SSBP, we hone our tracking skills to understand the original needs of our defensive patterns, discerning the reasons behind the current form. Meeting these needs in their original energetic allows for new perceptions and experiences to arise. Through patient observation and awareness we learn specific interventions in a combination of individual and group therapy. We also teach how to gently open the physical system to dissolve the limitations created through holding patterns developed over decades.

    As an Herbalist and Ceremonialist the program is truly an integrative mind-body therapy training. I bring teachings on basic health and its effect on our well-being, and the power of the Imaginal Realm and its role in healing. Graduates will gain skills to assess from a body-oriented viewpoint based on the tradition of Core Energetics, to organize information and back up their choice of interventions through the treatment plan over time. An additional Practitioner's Skills track is available for attendees who do not already work in the profession in order for them to achieve Certification.

    Class Topics

    Tracking ~ Developing Heart Perception ~ The Yes and the No ~ Body-Reading ~ Core Energetics and The Work of Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen and John Pierrakos~ Character Structure and its Application in the 21st Century ~ The Segments of the Body and Their Impact in Perception & Life Patterns~ Leading Safe Process Groups ~ Herbs for Mental Health ~ Working From Within the Imaginal Realm and Its Affect On Neuroplasticity ~ Ceremony for Health and Healing ~ Current-Diagnostics in a Larger Context ~ Somatic Therapy Approaches ~ Counter-Transference in Body-Therapy ~ Working with Dreams and Imagery ~ Trauma & it's Treatment ~ Working With Our Many Internal "Parts" ~ Clearing Spaces Internally and in the Environment ~ Interpersonal Work in the Group Setting ~ Movement to Impact Body Structure ~ Referencing From the Self

    Presenter Bio: Aylee Welch has been working with people in therapeutic environments, and writing and teaching since 1989, and has been certified in Core Energetics and Core Soma since 2006. Aylee is an Independent Clinical Social Worker licensed in Washington, California and Oregon.

    > modules times: 9:00am-5:30pm all days


    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    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.

    Short Summary:

    This workshop will be a creative exploration on returning home to the body and to the heart of what matters in your life through movement and art-making.

    Event Description: “To dance with life and not against it, to move responsively instead of reactively, this is a way to make spirit visible in the world.”

    This workshop will be a creative exploration on returning home to the body and to the heart of what matters in your life through movement and art-making. There is a potent connection to be made between our physical, emotional and imaginative experiences. As we make this connection, movement can serve as a metaphor and a narrative that reveals, expresses and transforms. Encountering old stories, we discover artful ways to re-story ourselves, bringing new vision to the life themes that matter to us.

    EVENT DESCRIPTION: 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.
