“This journey has been an incredibly fulfilling, and is one for which I am eternally grateful. I have learned more about myself in this training than any endeavor I have ever done.  The clarity I now embody has prepared me to hold space for others in my healing practice.   I have been reviewing all the material so generously provided to me over the 9 months and I stand in awe of the comprehensive depth of what has been delivered.  What an immense value this course offers; 80 collective years of professional experience condensed into a nine month training. Thank you!”

Voice Dialogue, Gestalt and NVC Non-Violent Communication: Ways of understanding our relationship to self and to other. Bringing closure to past events. Discovering more effective ways to interact with our self and others through cultivating empathy.

Voice Dialogue enables one to contact, understand, and work directly with the many selves that make up the human psyche. It is precise, like a laser beam, enabling the facilitator to focus upon a specific area of psyche for exploration, understanding, and healing.

Gestalt therapy emphasizes that to alleviate unresolved anger, pain, anxiety, resentment, and other negative feelings, these emotions cannot just be discussed, but must be actively expressed in the present time.

Non-Violent Communication is a process that strengthens our ability to inspire compassion from others and to respond compassionately to others and ourselves and to reframe how we express ourselves and how we hear others by focusing our consciousness on what we are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting

Heart Intelligence, Psychodrama, and Family Dynamics:  Shows us how to be present to what is happening moment to moment, gives us the ability to more deeply see and understand the patterns we picked up from our family, culture and early training, to then track these patterns.

Heart Intelligence is a series of practices that allow us to be more present to what is happening moment to moment, and make choices that continually guide us toward what has the most heart, meaning and juice for us. We get still, get clear, get inspired and get moving in the direction that will bring us the most joy.

Psychodrama is an active and creative therapeutic approach that uses guided drama and role-playing to work through problems, gain new insights, resolve problems, and practice new life skills and behaviors.

Family dynamics are the patterns of relating, or interactions, between family members. This includes family alignments, hierarchies, roles, ascribed characteristics and patterns of interactions within a family.
