Fri, Aug 27 - Tue, Jul 27. FOCUSING-ORIENTED PSYCHOTHERAPY, 7202442299
Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy will be reviewed by Susan Lennox, Ph.D., CPC, and Kate Kendrick, MA. They will share the pioneering work of philosopher and psychologist Eugene Gendlin, who collaborated with Carl Rogerson at the University of Chicago on the question of what helps clients to change and succeed in therapy. Gendlin's research revealed that clients who naturally referred to their own bodily "felt sense" ( a term he coined) were more likely to experience successful therapeutic outcomes. The felt sense is holistic in nature and contains within it much more than the client can easily think or emotionally know about their situation. By contacting the felt sense, the client transcends what he or she knows on the levels of behavior, emotion, and cognition and brings forth meaning from the deeper level of the felt sense. Since many people were unaware of the felt sense or had difficulty accessing it, Gendlin developed "Focusing", a process for helping people to access their felt senses. Focusing is now widely used by laypeople around the world for self-insight, healing, and growth and also is incorporated in a form of therapy known as Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT). In Focusing-Oriented Therapy, the therapist works with the client in a way that helps the client to find his or her own intricate bodily felt sense. In this workshop, we will introduce you to Focusing and some of the fundamentals of working with our clients in a Focusing-oriented way. This will include e Learn More...

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.
