In this workshop, inspired by and based mainly on Process Experiential, Phenomenology, Humanistic-Existential, and Mindfulness-based traditions, participants will learn how to help clients move from self-shaming and self-alienating states to states of self- and other-compassion. Tapping also into Gestalt, Family Systems, Emotion-Focused and mind-body inquiry practices we will utilize individual and group based psychological inquiry practices, therapeutic explorations, mindfulness practices, reflections and discussions, to explore the following themes:
  • Principles of conscious healing, including families of mindfulness practices
  • Neo-Humanistic existential frameworks for understanding the ways we internalize a sense of the deficient self and contract against parts of the self, including brief discussion of Internal Family Systems (IFS), Process-Experiential Emotion Focused and Buddhist psychological frameworks
  • Explore and identify our own living processes of contraction and rejection of parts of self
  • Explore and identify living processes for making contact with our own deep basic goodness and capacity to accept and integrate self toward congruence and wholeness
  • Explore and identify collective resonance around basic vulnerability and basic existential longings at the heart of our contracted and transforming self.
