Intensives are an opportunity to explore the root causes of self-defeating patterns affecting your life negatively, release painful emotions, reclaim personal power, and make progress that sticks by acquiring the tools necessary to make positive change. This rapid immersion will give you solid ground to support sustained growth and healing.
Customized to Fit Your Needs
Valuing and creating a healthy relationship with one's self is an important component of healing from emotional wounds. Less than nurturing experiences in childhood cause us to adapt and become who we think will please others rather than discovering our authentic self.
Your Personal Intensive takes place over three days and is a dynamic educational and experiential process that will help you understand how your earlier life experience affects your current life. You will begin the process of resolving past hurts that have kept you stuck in unproductive and destructive patterns (depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders and painful relationships). Various therapy modalities will be integrated to design a personal intensive that best fits your needs and goals.
The Intensive takes place from 9am-3pm each day.
Available in October
This is a private, two-day personalized couple's experience. Intensives are a great way for busy, motivated partners to dig into specific areas of their relationship in an efficient, rewarding way. An intensive brings the clarity needed to better understand and accept one another, while also realizing how to have your own wants and needs.
During an intensive, we’ll focus attention on learning a way of communicating that will help you explore and get to the heart of an issue for lasting change. The experience will bolster each partner’s confidence as a partner and individual.
You will come away with a book of customized tools you can use when challenges arise in your daily life to support sustained growth.
The Healing Journey
The Healing Journey is a small group three-day dynamic educational and experiential process that will help you understand how your earlier life experience affects your current life. You will learn how to deal with emotions connected to less than nurturing events, and begin the process of resolving past hurts that have kept you stuck in unproductive and destructive patterns (depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders and painful relationships). The focus is not on blaming caregivers, but rather healing the trauma of any past events impacting adult life. This program is based on the groundbreaking work of Pia Mellody and utilizes her treatment model for healing.
Phase 1 - Educational
Participants will be presented with an overview of Pia’s model regarding childhood trauma, and the impact unresolved trauma has on current relationships, including relationship with self. Participants will begin to understand the relationship between the child and the adult, as perceived by the child. It is from these relationships that children internalize their sense/source of value and worth.
Phase 2 - Debriefing
With the help of the therapist, participants will explore the less-than-nurturing and/or abusive recollected childhood experiences with a focus on the associated emotions.
Phase 3 - Experiential
Guided by the therapist, participants move through a series of specific processes which help to identify and heal childhood relational trauma issues. In this safe and nurturing environment, participants often release painful emotions and begin the process of reclaiming their rights and personal power.
Phase 4 - Ongoing healing
Participants will receive a set of strategies, tools and resources to use on a daily basis for ongoing recovery, self empowerment and healing.
Due to the intensive nature of the work, the intensive is limited to 4 participants. The Program takes place from 9am-approximately 6pm each day.
