Sat, Oct 2. Dreaming with the Horses, 7202358582
Dreaming with the Horses Workshop Have you ever had a dream that sticks with you? Sometimes when we dream there is a strong feeling after waking. At first it isn't always clear what it is. This workshop is designed for people who want to make meaning of their dreams. We will be reexperiencing the dream to invite a deeper sense of knowing. Horses require us to be congruent where our insides have to match our outsides. Because of this we recognize our emotions with clarity. Being around horses drops us into your bodies where we can feel out our truth versus getting stuck in our head. We are allowed an embodied way to stay with dream imagery and sink fully into the experience and meaning. Through this process the dreamer will have an opportunity to step into their aligned wholeness, offering a space for real transformation.

Series of discussions, dialogues and conversations between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and International existential therapists Online in Zoom “Welcome to this series of discussions, dialogues and conversations between various existential therapists and myself. Existential therapy is a wide ranging arena, with many perspectives and different views that also, fundamentally, share an attitude expressing a way of thinking and being with people. Representatives of the existential approach from different parts of the world have agreed to engage in an open-format discussion with me. Each of them will bring their own particular topic of interest as the focus for the discussion. From these, participants will hopefully see that existential therapy and existential thought in general cover a huge range of topics, view points and perspectives and explores these in a way that it is different, stimulating and enjoyable.” Prof Ernesto Spinelli PROGRAMME 2022 Ten Saturdays from 2pm to 3pm (UK time) Existential Dialogues between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and the following guests: Dr MANU BAZZANO "Therapy and the Daimonic" (22 January) Dr KATERINA ZYMNIS "Diving into the Co-Created World of the Psychotherapeutic Encounter" (19 February) Dr TODD DUBOSE "The Power of Phenomenological Openness" (19 March) MICHAEL MONTGOMERY "Reconciling the Past" (23 April) Dr YAQUI MARTINEZ "Challenges to Existential Therapeutic Practice" (21 May) BÁRBARA GODOY "Brainstorming the Basis of an Existential Laboratory" Learn More...

Coaching in a New Key: An Applied Existential Approach

Sat, Feb 12 2022 - Sat, Aug 27 2022

Betty Cannon and Robyn Chauvin, BPI - 303 494 0393

Have you found during the pandemic that you actually like working online? Then you might want to consider adding existential coaching to your professional repertoire. Unlike therapy, which is limited by state laws, coaching can be done across state lines or actually anywhere in the world. This class will help you retool some of your existing knowledge for coaching. Since existential therapy is already attuned to life issues, this is a transition that is easier to make than the transition from more medical-model approaches. But there are some important differences between coaching and therapy. You will learn to use specific existential coaching interventions with individuals, couples, and groups or organizations. Since the coaching relationship tends to be more egalitarian than the therapy relationship, there will be plenty of room for creativity for both client and therapist. The training is both didactic and experiential. We will talk about principles and techniques, demonstrate them, introduce experiential exercises, and ask you to practice with each other and/or practice clients outside of class. Participants who complete the class will receive a 48-hour Certificate of Study in Applied Existential Coaching.
