    Active Imagination in Movement – Encountering the Other Within Us, Between Us, and in the World

    August 25, 2019

    International Association of Analytical Psychology International CongressViennaAustria

    9:00am – 5:00pm

    Pre-Congress Workshop on Authentic Movement: Danced & Moving Active Imagination

    The unrelated human being lacks wholeness, for he can achieve wholeness only through the soul, and the soul cannot exist without its other side, which is always found in ‘You.’ Wholeness is a combination of I and You, and these show themselves to be parts of a transcendent unity whose nature can only be grasped symbolically          –  Jung

    Co-leaders: Antonella Adorisio (CIPA-Rome), Joan Chodorow (CGJISF-San Francisco), Margarita Méndez (SVAJ-Caracas), and Tina Stromsted (CGJISF-San Francisco).

    Interweaving theoretical, experiential, cultural and clinical material through presentations and discussion, this workshop will explore dance/movement as a form of active imagination, with special attention to the living body in analytic practice. By listening to the body to access and express the imagination, individuals may discover inner-directed movement as a way to bridge the realms of conscious and unconscious, body and psyche, instinct and spirit, affect and image, memory and emergence.

    Sometimes called “Authentic Movement,” this form of active imagination focuses attention on felt bodily sensations, impulses, multi-sensory images, feelings and emotions, which are then allowed to emerge as symbolic enactment. The work is done with one’s eyes closed in the presence of a witness, whose task it is to hold and contain the experience of the person moving.

    Analysts use the connection between body and psyche as a central clinical tool, yet there may be few opportunities to foster the development of this dimension. This workshop offers a structure within which analysts can both have a practical experience of their own moving imagination as well as enrich their understanding of its application to verbal analytic practice.

    Morning and afternoon sessions include Introduction, bodily awareness, reflection, and movement experience, toward dialogue and exchange. Participants are invited to wear comfortable clothing and to bring a notebook and/or drawing materials to record their images and experiences

    ISP PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, MODULE 1

    Still Waters Retreat - Austin, Texas

    Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training, Module 1: The Physiology of Emotions. One can take module one before committing to modules two and three.

    The Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training (ISP):  Improving outcomes and shortening treatment times in all therapy modalities (including those already body-oriented) through greater embodiment of a larger range of emotions.

    What is ISP?

    Are you interested in improving outcomes and shortening treatment times in your practice?

    New evidence-based theories of embodied cognition and emotion in cognitive psychology and neuroscience offer the possibility of improving outcomes and shortening treatment periods in all therapies including those that are already body-oriented such as Somatic Experiencing (SE).

    Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP), has been developed by Dr. Raja Selvam on the basis of findings in these emerging and exciting scientific paradigms, on over a hundred years of research on the physiology of emotions, on findings from multiple body psychotherapy approaches on various physiological defenses against emotions, and on principles of energy psychology.

    ISP offers therapists in all modalities a complementary approach to improve cognitive, emotional, behavioral, physical, energetic, relational, and spiritual outcomes in all therapies through fuller embodiment of a larger range of emotional experiences including the always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions that can be readily found in almost every clinical situation.

    Who can benefit from ISP?

    ISP is for experienced clinicians engaged in psychological work with individuals or groups in therapeutic practice or teaching. If you are a psychologist, psychiatrist, marriage and family therapist, social worker, professional counselor, psychiatric nurse, or art, movement and breath therapist, coach, bodyworker, energy worker, psychology trainer and educator, clergy, meditation and spiritual teacher, you will find the training valuable in your clinical practice or professional education work that involves psychological processing.

    What is covered in ISP?

    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 cognition, emotion, and behavior 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 in 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 in the brain and the body. We will study about defenses against emotions in the quantum body of the individual as well as in the connections between the individual and collective psyches. 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 the embodiment of a broader range of emotional experiences (primary, secondary, and always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions).

    Module One will focus 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 Two will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the musculature and diaphragms in the torso as well as through the autonomic nervous system and the organs, glands, and blood vessels governed by it. The topic of inter-personal resonance, its scientific basis, how to use it, and its value in emotional embodiment as well as attachment work will be covered.  In addition, as an optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, how to work with four layers of the quantum level subtle body introduced in part one, metaphorically named ether, air, fire, and water, will be presented.

    Module Three will focus on how we can facilitate greater emotional embodiment through the physiology of the brain, spinal cord, and the structures that surround and protect them (cerebrospinal fluid, membrane, bone, fascia, tendon, ligament, muscle. An optional topic for the consideration of participants for the purpose of further improving emotional embodiment, how to work with another layer of the quantum level subtle body, metaphorically named earth, will be presented. Another optional topic for the consideration of participants, how to work to connect the individual psyche to various levels of the collective psyche to further improve emotional embodiment, will also be presented.

    ISP Module 1 Objectives:

    1.    To be able to describe the ways in which cognition, emotion, and behavior have been found to be dependent not only on the brain but also on the body and the environment.

    2.    To be able to describe the ways in which cognition, behavior, and emotion have been found to be inter-related in the brain as well as the body and its relationship to the environment.

    3.    To be able to describe the importance of emotion and the body’s involvement in emotion for improved cognition, emotion, and behavior.

    4.    To be able to describe how the greater use of the body as a container for regulating emotions can improve cognition, emotion, and behavior.

    5.    To be able to describe the major findings on the physiology of emotions in the brain, the body, and the body’s relationship to the environment.

    6.    To be able to describe the different ways in which the muscular system has been found to be involved in generating as well as defending against emotions.

    7.    To be able to describe specific tools (awareness, intent, expression, movement, breath, etc.) that psychotherapists can use to expand and regulate the brain and body physiology to expand and regulate emotional experience.

    8.    To be able to describe the different types or layers of emotional experience (primary, secondary, and sensorimotor).

    9.    To be able to describe the seven basic feedback patterns in the model of regulation used in the ISP approach to facilitate blood, nervous system, and energy flows in the brain and body physiology to improve physical and emotional regulation.

    10.To be able to describe how to work with the musculature in the arms, legs, and head and neck areas to expand these areas to foster greater emotional regulation.

    The USABP Webinar Series and The Radical Aliveness Institute Present: 

    Explore specific ways in Group to work cross-culturally, cross-nationally, with polarization and “trauma.”

    For 20 years Ann Bradney has been on the ground developing the Radical Aliveness model for working with groups. Starting from her somatic psychotherapy background, this journey and exploration has led to some very specific ways of working cross-culturally, cross-nationally, with polarization, and “trauma”. In this webinar, Ann will talk about what she has discovered about how to hold a group process that includes bodywork, awareness and relational work to create a powerful and inclusive container where all levels of the human experience can be seen, heard and validated. This requires very specific things from the leader.

    To help illustrate the Radical Aliveness Approach to group work, Ann will provide case examples from around the world.

    When you can learn to engage powerful feelings without the need to control or tame them, that is Radical Aliveness.”
    - Ann Bradney, Founder

    WHAT IS RADICAL ALIVENESS?

    The training programs and retreats of the Radical Aliveness Institute work with the intersection of systemic reality and emotional process, creating a space where hearts can be held with an awareness of world and social realities as well as family-of-origin issues. It is an environment where people from all walks of life, from all positions and roles, have space to be in relationship with each other and understand, feel, heal and transform on all levels of their being.

    Offering a rigorous, ground-breaking curriculum for personal transformation and leadership, RAI cultivates leaders worldwide who authentically act from their hearts and from a deep place of knowing and understanding themselves and others. The innovative and unique Radical Aliveness method trains students how to skillfully work with, heal and transform complex personal and social issues. Radical Aliveness is eye opening, awareness growing, conflict resolving, community making. It bridges gaps and promotes understanding, relationship and connection where profound differences have lived, where we have despaired of solutions.

    This workshop provides essential, basic knowledge of how to work with shame. You will learn what shame is and how it is created, and how to help your clients recognize shame, work through it and move on. We will discuss how to become more sensitive to the shaming often implicit in the therapy situation and how to counter shame in therapy.

    “The body is merely the visibility of the soul, the psyche; and the soul is the psychological experience of the body. So it is really one and the same thing.”      
        – C.G. Jung


    How do we hear the call of the soul and the guidance of our inner voice to nourish ourselves in these volatile, polarized, fast-paced times? Join us as we engage Jung’s active imagination method, illuminating a pathway by sensing your body, exploring your dreams, and accessing your inner wisdom through movement, drawing and writing.

    What does it mean to live a vital, embodied life in our modern world, which is so devoted to power, speed, technological advancement, and materialism? How can we rediscover the sacredness of our bodies and the Eros in everyday life?

    Jung’s Active Imagination method provides avenues for receiving guidance from your inner landscape through body awareness, movement, dreamwork, drawing, and writing. These approaches allow access to rich inner resources – reawakening our natural rhythms, instinctual wisdom, and the songs of the soul. Integrating Jungian Theory, BodySoul Work®, Somatics, and the creative arts, we will explore bodily experience in the process of healing and transformation, so vital to therapeutic practice, daily life, and the wellbeing of the planet.

    Join us for a day-long retreat to nourish your own voice and illuminate your path. Together, we can learn from and support each other in building toward a more resilient, resourceful community.

    No experience is necessary. Clinicians, healing practitioners, educators, artists, and those interested in growth and matters of the spirit… all are welcome!

    The Embodied Consciousness Immersion is a six-day deep dive into exploring consciousness through the lens of somatic psychology, social justice, and spirituality and is led by world-renowned somatic facilitators and leaders of applied spiritual wisdom including: Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Dr. Scott Lyons, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Dr. Rae Johnson, Dr. Theresa Silow, Rev. angel Kyodo Williams, Tara Judelle, Dr. Judith Blackstone, and Sally Kempton.

    This immersion invites participants to move beyond the research and theory of consciousness and to step directly into the felt sense of it. 

    Join us for a week of movement, meditation, lectures, yoga, and dynamic practices in both group and partner work. Throughout this immersion, we will address developmental, socio-cultural, and psychosomatic dynamics that impact our ability to experience wholeness and aliveness throughout our life. We will introduce and utilize a range of tools from Body-Mind Centering®, Somatic Experiencing, Focusing Technique, Nondual Tantric Philosophy, Embodied Flow™, Life Visioning Process, Breathwork, Realization Process®, and Hakomi method to attune to our inner landscape and help cultivate self-awareness, agency, resilience, and purpose. Ultimately, these embodied practices create and cultivate bridges of interconnection to others, ourselves, the environment, and beyond.

    This week will provide you with practical tools in working with yourself and others towards living a life in deep connection and relationship, moving us ever closer to a world that is beyond false division — one that is consciously embodied. 

     

    WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS EVENT?

    Unlike a conference, this immersion is an experiential journey, from start to finish, to guide you in working with yourself and others in this profound mind-body-spirit medicine. This world renown faculty is working together to co-create a journey for you through the processes of embodying consciousnesses. 


    ENROLLMENT

    Enrollment is limited to around 100 people to make it a really intimate event. If you enroll by June 13th, you can benefit from the early bird rate. If you would like more information about this event, please email immersion@embodiedflow.com.

    NARM PRACTITIONER TRAINING – PHOENIX, ARIZONA MODULE 1

    Wednesday, October 23 - Sunday, October 27, 2019

    Hampton Inn & Suites  – Scottsdale, Arizona

    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).

    In this training I will synthesize one of the most important developments in psychotherapy over the past few decades. This includes breakthroughs incorporating the body into the work of psychotherapy, the influence of attachment theory, the ever-expanding use of the therapeutic relationship as a modality for healing, and new changes in the field of addiction.


    Clinical Application of the
    Adult Attachment Interview
    with Joni Lavick, MFT

    October 26, 2019
    10:00 am – 5:00 pm

    In this training I will synthesize one of the most important developments in psychotherapy over the past few decades. This includes breakthroughs incorporating the body into the work of psychotherapy, the influence of attachment theory, the ever-expanding use of the therapeutic relationship as a modality for healing, and new changes in the field of addiction.

    Attachment is learned behavior and passed on from parent to child. Insecure attachment strategies manifest in maladaptive interpersonal relationships and failed attempts by individuals to resolve or repair wounds resulting from past traumatic experiences. Insecure attachment creates affect-regulation problems characterized by mood disturbances, poor impulse control, substance abuse and dependence, and the lack of ability for self-regulation.

    My approach is practical, based on my 25 years of experience and study. It is always my goal to teach useful interventions you can bring to your practice immediately. You won’t be disappointed!

    We will use The Adult Attachment Interview (c) by Mary Main, Ph.D. to explore working relationally with individuals and couples. It provides real time methods to bring the healing power of therapy into the room.

    Please note: This workshop is an introduction to the clinical application of the AAI and is not a substitute for the required formal training to properly score it.

    This exploration is unique in that it explains the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) as the valid and reliable assessment tool it is. You will learn to give the AAI and receive the knowledge of how it is evaluated.

    Attachment is learned behavior and passed on from parent to child. Insecure attachment strategies manifest in maladaptive interpersonal relationships and failed attempts by individuals to resolve or repair wounds resulting from past traumatic experiences. Insecure attachment creates affect-regulation problems characterized by mood disturbances, poor impulse control, substance abuse and dependence, and the lack of ability for self-regulation.

    Part 1: We will explore the structure and function of this 20-question assessment tool. The inventory begins with early childhood attachment, separation, trauma assessment, and shifts in attachment from adolescence to adulthood. I will discuss the organized attachment strategies in infants and adults.

    Break: Secure Snacks!

    Part 2. This is a demonstration of the meat of the AAI followed by a dyadic experiential breakout where you will give and answer this part of the AAI. Following this interaction I’ll begin to introduce how the AAI is evaluated.

    Lunch on your own: Separation and individuation!

    Part 3. We will move on to trauma assessment and changes in the AAI from adolescence to adulthood.  We will focus on trauma resolution and how this matrix impacts sustaining secure attachment. This section will also include a demonstration and experiential dyads.

    Break: More Safe Snacks.

    Part 4. We will learn how use the AAI to develop a treatment plan to guide clients toward earned secure. Analysis of how attachment strategies reveal themselves in the transference will be explored.

    At this workshop you will learn:

    • To use the Adult Attachment Interview in a one session framework and how to listen for and understand the adult categories of organized attachment.
    • Identify your own attachment strategy
    • Administer the AAI
    • Use the AAI to help identify the attachment patterns of your clients.

    Please note:  This workshop is held in a private home in Encino and lunch is included.

    The subject of death remains largely taboo in our culture.  Yet, a growing number of Americans are reaching the stage of life when we must face the decline and death of elderly loved ones while feeling increasingly vulnerable to aging and illness ourselves.

    These tangible signs of mortality open us up to the richness of life that becomes accessible when we are willing to explore within ourselves and venture into delicate, often difficult discussions about end-of-life issues with our closest relatives and friends. While too many of us defer these sensitive conversations until it is too late, they clear a path to deeper relationships and the quality of experience we want to have at the end of life. We hope you will join us in a dialogue that may open the door to your reflections and intimate conversations with your loved ones – and greatly enrich your life.

    In the morning of this workshop, Sherry will share her end-of-life conversations with her husband of more than 25 years. Joe died peacefully at home at 92 after a battle with Parkinson’s disease that left him bedridden for several months. About two months before he died, he told Sherry:

    It feels like I’m living between two places, between human life and death.

    His greatest gift was to talk about what he was thinking and feeling as his life came to an end. Sherry took notes during many of their conversations as part of her healing process, and the results are a good example of what can happen when the topic of death is no longer taboo.

    In the afternoon, Michael will facilitate experiential exercises to open us to engaging in end-of-life conversations that will explore the fears and challenges that get in the way of being present and connected.  We will explore our personal experiences as the means through which we can increase our capacity to support family, friends and clients during end-of-life experiences.

    This workshop will combine didactics, self-exploration and experiential exercises.

    At the end of the workshop, therapists will be able to:

    NARM PRACTITIONER TRAINING – AUSTIN, TEXAS MODULE 1

    Wednesday, January 15 - Sunday, January 19, 2020

    Still Waters Retreat Center  – Austin, Texas

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

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Trainingis 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).
