“You do not have to be good

You do not have to walk on your knees

For a hundred miles through the desert

You only have to let this soft animal of your Body

Love what it loves…”

Mary Oliver

About this workshop:

This highly experiential workshop presents a truly bottom-up approach to working with developmental and transgenerational trauma.

  • During the three days together, we will gain an appreciation of what it takes to fully enter the experience and vulnerability of being a body and connecting with other bodies from this place. We will learn to experience what it means to live and act from bottom-up, rather than top-down. There are many subtle ways of conceptualizing our embodied experience instead of living it fully. The difference needs to be experienced.
  • In our work with others, we will specifically learn to pay attention to our client’s body’s expressions and unconscious messages, such as interrupted gestures, incongruent movements, tone of voice, etc., as they arise during the session and can be felt and witnessed together. We also pay specific attention to how we are affected by our clients. This process will require of us to be deeply present, open, curious and embodied and to slow down, so that we can pay close attention to the flickering moments of opportunity between us. We will learn how to deepen a process step by step by being specific in our mindful inquiry, while at the same time, wide open. We will be working in dyads, triads, as well as in the group.
  • Our body will be our primary resource, while at the same time emphasizing a body-mind integration. We will practice mindfulness meditation centered in and through the body to help us deepen our experience of being in the body, and we will explore movement and voice to access more freedom of bodily expression.

 

 

Living in Western Society comes with a prize. From a young age we become accustomed to favor mind over matter, rational thinking over the body’s wisdom. When we lose touch with the deep intuitive wisdom of our physicality, we also lose touch with nature and the world around us. I believe that living disconnected from our bodies is part of the reason which allows us to collectively destroy our beautiful planet. When we are attuned with our bodies we naturally care for others and the world.

In a very real way, we embody the encoding of our biological history as well as the unquestioned assumptions, orientations and expectations of our families, societies, and ancestors. These unquestioned assumptions and emotions, as well as forgotten and rejected parts of our history, are stored in our body and signal messages to others, which we are largely unconscious of, and which are often incongruent with our conscious values and intentions.

Our tone of voice, our unconscious movements and gestures, our postural and facial expressions, our eye gaze and affect tell others what we expect from them and life in general, based on our early experiences. We also pick up these signals from others which, together with our personal and cultural biases, unconsciously shape our perception of them and our ways of reacting to them.

Through bringing awareness to these unconscious body signals, we can make space for unprocessed memory and connected emotional content to arise and move through us. In this way we learn to appreciate and integrate the original function of our protective behavior. This process will help us explore new ways of being and acting and access a greater freedom of choice and a new zest for life.

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.
