“We are all gifted with ‘futures’ – potentials of our true self – which we may or may not realize in the course of time.”
“The true self is the ‘kernel’ (or core) of our being, invested with a ruthless demand to realize its potential through the ‘use of another’ …The true self is our unique form-in-being, or ‘idiom’, that expresses itself through our effect upon the other…a forward momentum that is intrinsic to human formation.”
– Christopher Bollas

A New PSEN WORKSHOP
Three Days of Enlivening Depth Work based on the work of Christopher Bollas.
Some of most our satisfying exchanges come from witnessing our client’s fresh capacity to come from their own aliveness – to bring themselves alive – through their ability to make use of the Therapist’s personality and presence.
In this workshop, we will demonstrate and practice this combination of availability and skill of the practitioner. We hold the client in mind and in body in a receptive and responsive orientation, one that allows the client to bring forth their as-yet-unlived potential residing in the core of their being.
“The practitioner embraces the true self expression of their client
through their internal emotional response to its presence.
The idiom of the client moves through the practitioner’s interior

Have Questions About The Workshop?
“The therapist’s availability and receptivity to the idiomatic form of the client can support the release of that person’s true self. Through the therapist’s alive and witnessing presence, the client can realize futures that have been unknown to them, and have gone unexperienced by them.”
“I have a firm belief in this now, not only in terms of my own experience, but in knowing about the experiences of other people. When you follow your bliss, and by bliss I mean the deep sense of being in it, and doing what the push is out of your own existence – it may not be fun, but it’s your bliss and there’s bliss behind pain too…
You follow that and doors will open where there were no doors before, where you would not have thought there were going to be doors, and where there wouldn’t be a door for anybody else…
There’s something about the integrity of a life and the world moves in and helps. It really does…And so I think the best thing I can say is, Follow Your Bliss. If your bliss is just your fun and excitement, you’re on the wrong track. I mean, you need instruction…Know where your bliss is.
And that involves coming down to a deep place in yourself.”
– Joseph Campbell
