Join our compassionate community on a transformative journey towards healing, empowerment and skills-building!
The CARE Training is a transformative 3-year journey to learn, practice and embody bio-psychosocial skills for personal healing and professional development in the midst of a nourishing community. What’s UNIQUE about CARE compared with other therapy approaches?
1. Social somatics: in the CARE Training you will learn all the nervous system science to be able to reliably assess your clients’ autonomic nervous system patterns. Additionnally, unlike with other somatic therapy approaches, you will be able to facilitate group processes harnessing the power of somatics and embodiment (Resiliency Circles). You will learn to hold and empower groups as a social organism. This is a unique aspect of NeuroSystemics, combining the amazing work of Irvin Yalom (Boaz Feldman’s mentor) with Polyvagal theory insights.
2. Highly experiential therapy: Personal session work, group processes and community therapies all have embodiment, here-and-now attention and safety-oriented interventions at their core. The CARE Training offers a unique educational space to be able to practice all 3: (i) 1:1, (ii) group and (iii) community skills experientially, and then use them with our clients, groups and communities.
3. Therapy as systemic activism: The book “100 years of the therapy and the world is getting worse” by James Hillman describes how therapy is hyper-individualistic and underrates the influence of societal culture. In our Empowerment Forum sessions, you will learn to hold community processes which tackle issues of systemics trauma and systemics resilience. That way, your 1:1 therapy practices will help with personal issues, groupwork with relational ones and community processes will heal and strengthen resilience from systemic traumitization stemming from dysfunctional aspects of our culture and society. The CARE training is the only therapy training which provides all these skills in a single training with a somatic and embodiment framework.
4. Neuro-spiritual therapy practices: A growing litterature describes ‘nature deficit-disorder’ and ’emptiness’ as damaging symptoms for our mental health. The CARE training includes rigorous conceptual frameworks and practices from eco-systemic and contemplative sciences to increase therapeutic effectiveness and respond to these 21st century challenges.
NeuroSystemics is an integrative clinical methodology building resiliency and empowerment internally and in relationships. We focus on embodiment approaches in individual, small group and community practices using a systems framework. It includes bio-affective (somatic), cognitive, relational and neurospiritual practices and uses meta-maps to track our clients’ states and development.

Is the CARE Training for me?
The CARE Training is for:
Therapists, clinicians, psychologists, doctors, psychiatrists: learn to work with the body, build solid group facilitation skills, integrate your tools in a transdiagnostic framework, include attentional and emotional regulation, explore psycho-spiritual practices.
New or experienced meditation practitioners and MBSR-MBCT teachers: deepen their practice with a bio-psychosocial framework to integrate the impact of social and societal influences on individual psychological and somatic levels.
Corporate and community leaders and human resource managers: develop social intelligence practices, deepen attunement to others by becoming more sensitive to somatic, affective and cognitive processes.
Social workers, yoga teachers, health-practitioners and educators: learn to create safe environments for learning and engaging optimally, understand nervous system functioning to support resiliency and empowerment
Professionals in the helping professions and NGO’s: empowerment and inspiration in tackling social and environmental crises and injustices, prevent burnout and tackle stress optimally, engage in the mutual nourishment
The completion of a CARE week-end introductory workshop is required for registration on the CARE training program, but there are no other pre-training requirements.
The full CARE Training includes 6 training modules (CARE 1-6), they are all ONLINE and each of the 6 modules include:
- 8 days full days of training (over 2 long week-ends, 2x Thurs-Sun): These are the main training sessions with lecture, demonstrations, small group practices
- 8 hours of workshops (4 x 2h): Faculty-led workshops where participants choose what they need to receive to complete their learning (i.e. added faculty inputs, questions, practice, demonstrations)
- 6 hours of Mentor groups (3x2h): small groups where participants will be able to discuss their learning and practice relevant skills with mentors (6-8 people per group)
The whole training will be recorded and an online platform will be provided to review any part of the course.
It is possible to participate only in CARE 1 + 2 without committing to the full 3-year training.
