Who is this Workshop for?

During this workshop we will gain more clarity about what is ‘worth the struggle’ when it comes to our deepest desires and discern when our struggles are simply distractions and avoidances from the effort needed to bring ourselves more fully alive.

This workshop is for professional practitioners and therapists from various healing modalities, as well as anyone with a sincere interest in furthering their own personal development.

“Until we grow up and step into the large challenge of living our journey as individuals and as a society, we will get the demagogic leaders and the infantilizing culture we deserve.”

James Hollis

This highly experiential workshop provides participants with an in-depth exploration of our fundamental need as human beings to grow beyond our limited sense of being, and to re-ignite the zest for life we may have once embraced at an earlier time in our lives. We will attend together the most fundamental questions that make us human.

  • Who am I apart from my history and assigned script?

  • Why am I here?

  • What is life asking of me right now?

  • What is the new story I find myself pulled towards, what brings me alive?


About this workshop:

During these 3 days together, we will support each other in examining the deeply rooted and unquestioned believes and assumptions we hold in our bodies and minds, which keep us separate from who we are and from the world at large.

  • We will explore a deeper awareness of our innate vulnerability, that comes with living in this world, and grow an appreciation how this is crucial to both move beyond our old story, as well as understand why we withhold so much from the world.
  • We will also come face to face with the inevitable ego deaths required as we attend to our desire to step into a larger life and become more able to approach the inevitable anxieties that arise as we enter meaningful and creative encounter with others.
  • We will grow our appreciation for what it takes to truly move our lives forward, and to embrace new possibilities for enlivening and passionate engagement with the world and others, and we will examine the ways in which we tend to resist change.
  • Together we will find meaningful ways of challenging our habitual selves by stepping into the unknown again and again. We will dive deep beneath the surface of our experience, through the gateway of our bodies, our minds and our being together. 

Both as a group as well as in our work together in diads and triads, we will find ways to enter the unconscious by slowing down, by learning to content with our moment-to-moment experience and to notice when we resist what is. Together we will radically open to a felt sense of an emergence that can only come once we surrender.

Our daily practices of mindfulness and embodiment will provide us with the necessary ground for our work together. We will also practice engaged witnessing and presence, and we will experience the impact of our engaged and enlivened presence with each other.

In summary, we will gain more clarity about what is ‘worth the struggle’ when it comes to our deepest desires and discern when our struggles are simply distractions and avoidances from the effort needed to bring ourselves more fully alive

About Our PSEN Approach To Depth Work As Practitioners:

A basic premise of our PSEN approach is to look more deeply into our own unconscious depths, those areas and aspects of ourselves that are ‘as-yet-unknown’ to us. We recognize that what we can’t see about ourselves holds power over us, and contributes to our compelling and disturbing troubles that elude resolution.

As practitioners, we can appreciate that our ability to keep ourselves interested and alive in the presence of our clients is both our job and our responsibility.  Our aliveness, in relationship to our client’s being, can also be a profound gift that supports our clients in life-moving, and potentially, life-changing ways.

Our passionate involvement with the inner world of our clients creates the possibility of their deeper transitioning into life.

More About PSEN Depth Work For Practitioners:

Living systems need to be disturbed in order to be grounded and enlivened enough to change.  Disturbance comes through the ability of the individual to feel and think differently from others, and differently than their own fixed ideas and rigidified beliefs.

As a practitioner, the ability to be a grounded support, and yet also a disturbing force for another, provides our clients with the following:


  • A sense of being seen and directly engaged where they currently are, while at the same time being challenged to take worthwhile risks and lean into new potentials, in ways that are unlikely to come from within themselves.
  • Introductions to and demonstration sessions of various methodologies of PsychoEnergetics process facilitation – our uniquely crafted body-mind approach to in depth psychological work .
  • An approach to and in-depth exploration of our fundamental need as human beings to grow beyond our limited sense of being, and through passionate encounters, to reconnect to a zest for life that can renew us, and move us forward.
  • An opportunity to engage practitioners in the depths of their own psyches while having a felt sense of a lived energy through sensations in the body, in order to better support their clients in becoming more whole and alive.
