Sun, Nov 17 - Sun, Nov 17ORDINARY MAGIC: Rituals for Grief and Gratitude, 720-434-5942
All lives have times of deep gratitude, feeling awe for what namelessly fills our heart, and times of deep grief, wondering if we will ever see color or light again. Ritual brings power and shape to those times by stirring our hearts and spirits to bring their strengths to our experience. As we carry an intention to enrich the meaning of a time or event, we also allow it to shape us. Events change us. Rituals transform us. In this day-long workshop, we'll explore the substance of time-honored rituals and the alchemical power of personal ritual. Using storytelling, art, a labyrinth walk, and personal symbols, you will understand the nature, purpose and effect of ritual as an approach to life, and learn to create personal forms that you can use in any situation at any time.

Being able to understand and address root biochemical issues gives many mental health practitioners the edge they need to help clients overcome physiological distress that may drive relapse! *10 CEUs* This PART II, subsequent 3-month ACCELERATED EDUCATION course builds on the integrative nutrition knowledge acquired in PART I. It further applies the tenets of functional medicine to mental health and addiction recovery by evolving student understanding of metabolic regulation and support for particularly sensitive clients, with a focus on alcohol, ammonia, glutamate, and histamine. A thorough review and deeper understanding of where to find and how to use proteins (amino acids), lipids (fatty acids and cholesterol), and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) for mental health, digestive wellness, and detoxification will be explored. The synthesis, reuptake, regulation, and degradation of major neurotransmitters will be examined through a nutritional lens. The student will explore connections between liver and brain health by learning about histamine, alcohol, and ammonia metabolism and how they impact mental health and addiction recovery. Lectures meet on alternating Tuesday evenings from 6:15 - 8:15 pm MTN time, 1/14, 1/28, 2/11, 2/25, and 3/10.

Fri, Feb 7 2020 - Sun, Feb 9 2020Learn EMDR Therapy To Help Heal PTSD and Trauma - Complete EMDR Training Package - EMDR Training in Denver Tech Center / Englewood, Colorado - February and May 2020 - 10 Hours of Group Consultation Included, 1-800-674-3637
Learn EMDR Therapy to Heal PTSD and Trauma and See Real Change in Your Clients Today! As clients struggle with not making the changes they are longing for in therapy, many therapists become frustrated and feel helpless that they are lacking the skills to help their clients make lasting change and transformation. If therapists only pay attention to what the client is saying, and the client is struggling to make lasting change, then something is missing in the therapeutic process. The solution may be a somatic approach to healing trauma using EMDR therapy. This evidenced based, integrative modality, is a recommended treatment of choice by several international mental health organizations for healing PTSD and trauma. Millions of people around the world have transformed the negative impact experienced from traumatic events into more adaptive ways of living by increasing their confidence, sense of joy and feeling more at peace. Real change is possible! This EMDRIA Approved EMDR Training program is personally taught by Barb Maiberger, the founder and CE Program Administrator for the Maiberger Institute. Barb's proprietary approach has pioneered the further integration of somatic interventions into EMDR therapy. She is the author of "EMDR Essentials: A Guide for Clients and Therapists", and co-author of "EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment in Trauma Treatment."

Sun, Apr 5 2020CONCENTRIC SEX THERAPY: A SOMATIC SEX THERAPY TRAINING FOR STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS, 7203459144
Level I & II training Dates Below Saturday: 9:00 am -5 pm & Sunday: 9:00 am - 1 pm with Melissa Walker, MA, LPC, R-DMT with Anna Mayer, MA, R-DMT 9 DORA CE Compliant Credits Available Our clients step into our offices clogged with years of negative messages about their sexuality. These negative messages write themselves directly onto the autonomic and somatic nervous system of the body and impact the way we inhabit ourselves and the relational space. When clients access the language of the body they learn to trust themselves and navigate the tangle obstructing their eroticism with pleasure and responsibility in real-time. Concentric Sex Therapy is a confluence of sexology, somatic psychotherapy, and Dance Movement Therapy. This model activates the innate tendency towards growth and complexity supporting an embodied experience and expression of the sexual self. During this training you will learn the practice of Erotic Bodyfulness, full-body arousal anatomy with a somatic approach to the human sexual response cycle, and embodied expression toward one's personal erotic potential and healthy relational sexuality. Level I training in Lafayette, CO, April 5th & 6th 2020 Level I training in Albuquerque, NM, May 16th & 17th 2020 Level II training in Lafayette, CO, September 2020 Learn More...
