Sat, Oct 20 - Sat, Oct 20Insight Meditation Daylong With Peter Williams: Your True Home, 303-476-0726
8:45 am - 5:30 pm, Saturday, October 20, 2018 Central Boulder. Suggested donation $60. If you plan to attend, please email Peter at . Only you know what it is really like to live inside your mind, body, and heart. This is your true home, the place you always are no matter where else you are. As such, you are the highest authority in your life. The Buddhist meditative path of awakening is based on a radical trust in your own authority. The trust is not in conceptual experience, which is always hypothetical, but in sensory experience, which is always clear and simple. The direct contact of mindfulness is empowering because it avoids dogma or reliance on other people's opinions. Instead, it cultivates personal insight into what works and doesn't work to make you happy. Further, in the presence cultivated by mindfulness you feel happy in your own skin, naturally worthy and loving. From here is where the generosity and courage come to help a troubled world. This retreat is open to both beginning and experienced meditators. Peter has practiced meditation for 25 years and has taught since 2003. Learn More...

Turner, PhD., Marcia Warren Edelman, LPCC, and Phillip Horner, LCSW, CGP, bring a collaborative and dedicated focus to working with racism, identity, and diversity by supporting groups and individuals to discover and change the narrative around racism, and to make new choices towards meaningful communication and appreciation across difference.

Sat, Nov 10 - Sun, Nov 11The Mosaic of Healing- Portal into Transformation, 303-618-5328
This workshop is designed to educate therapists on how to incorporate the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) created by Dr Stephen Porges, in advanced trauma-informed therapy. The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), in this particular program, is utilized as a preparatory tool that can be used at the beginning or during critical phases of the client's treatment in order to kindle and help them stay within their "window of tolerance" as they advance in their healing process. The SSP utilizes sound frequency (listening program) and it is a short-term modality used during the client's intervention (only five days of listening, seven day total program). The SSP is meant to prime the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) in being more open to heal in relationship to the self, experience, therapist and another. It brings a state of calmness and grounding that is sustained when one is working with activating and traumatic content. Beyond the utilization of the SSP, we will introduce specific tracking tools for the reflection and meaning of the client's experience. The adoption of the SEGAC (Sensation, Emotion, Gesture, Action, Concept) will allow for the therapist to help the client to actively participate in their personal journey in a multi-sensory and embodied way.
