    Focusing Roundtable

    Bringing The Pause Into Business

    A conversation hosted by Annette Dubreuil, Chiara Borrello & Rosa Zubizarreta

    Much remains to be explored and learned about how Focusing can enhance organizational effectiveness, leadership and the employee experience. In this Roundtable we will explore what happens (or could happen) when The Pause is brought into our organizations, businesses and workplaces.

    Presented by The International Focusing Institute

    July 29, 2021

    Mindfulness and meditation are increasingly used as tools to beat stress, foster resiliency and promote creativity at work. However, these processes are not yet integrated into the core of organizational strategies—and Focusing is virtually unknown in the business world. Much remains to be explored and learned about how these processes can enhance organizational effectiveness, leadership and the employee experience.

    In this Roundtable, we will explore what happens (or could happen) when The Pause is brought into our organizations, businesses and workplaces. Questions we might explore together include:

    What happens when we bring our whole selves to work by including our felt knowing?

    What changes when we incorporate deep listening in our relationships, teams, and group conversations at work?

    How we can use Focusing and the Felt Sense to become embodied leaders?

    How might our group Pauses create more fertile space for co-creation and emergence?

    We will explore these questions using a mix of dyads, as well as large and small group discussion. We will regularly pause, to check what is wanting to emerge next from our felt sense.

    Who might be particularly interested in attending this Roundtable?

    Anyone curious about this topic, especially Focusers who have experience or interest in bringing Focusing and body-centered awareness into businesses and work.

    CONNECTION>CONVERSATION>COMMUNITY

    What to expect from Focusing Roundtables: Each Focusing Roundtable is designed to promote informal peer-to-peer conversation. Rather than acting as expert presenters, the Hosts will serve as conversation moderators to encourage sharing and exploration of the topics from the participants’ own perspectives. All participants’ sharings are welcome and valuable, no matter what level of experience or knowledge you have on the topic. To preserve the nature of informal conversation, the program will be offered live only and no recordings will be available. Registration is limited and on a first-come, first served basis. Participants are encouraged to create follow up opportunities for connection among themselves after the Roundtable.

    Focusing Highlights:
    Organizing The World Around The Felt Sense

    What might our human world look like if we were to organise it with the felt sense in mind?

    We can make the felt sense an organising principle for everyone in responding to the world around us in a reflective manner. We can listen to it in facing our collective challenges, including climate change and other threats to our future.

    In this Highlight webinar Peter will present a neuroscience perspective on the felt sense as the expression of one half of the brain – the right hemisphere – and he will suggest some features of this organising principle.

    The illustrated presentation will be followed by discussion so that participants have the opportunity to contribute their own thoughts on the subject.

    July 30, 2021

    What Might Our Human World Look Like If We Were To Organise It With The Felt Sense In Mind?

    The felt sense is our feeling for the whole of a situation, a whole that links our outer world with our inner body-centred world. It is a background aspect of our experiencing much of the time, whether we have learnt Focusing or not, and we must give it some attention if we are to keep outer and inner worlds aligned.

    In this Highlight webinar Peter will present a neuroscience perspective on the felt sense as the expression of one half of the brain – the right hemisphere. This hemisphere forms an ensemble with the body, weaving changes in the outer world together with changes inside us in a flow of felt experiencing. The felt sense is where we can listen not only to our inner world, but also to each other and to the natural world we all inhabit.

    As well its personal aspects, we can make the felt sense an organising principle for everyone in responding to the world around us in a reflective manner. We can listen to it in facing our collective challenges, including climate change and other threats to our future.

    In this class, Peter will suggest some features of this organising principle. The illustrated presentation will be followed by discussion so that participants have the opportunity to contribute their own thoughts on the subject.

    All are welcome to attend. Some familiarity with Focusing will be helpful, but is not required.

    We use Zoom videoconferencing for our online classes. In this webinar format, you will see the presenter and host, but you will not be seen. You will be able to ask questions during the webinar by typing them.

    You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred. All registered participants will be sent a link to the video recording approximately two weeks following the class. So if you are unable to attend the live webinar, you will still be able to view it for one month.

    Bio

    Peter Afford has been practicing and teaching Focusing for years. Based in London, he is a Coordinator for TIFI and a founder member of the British Focusing Association. He also works as a counsellor and therapist in private practice, and has been studying neuroscience for over 20 years. He is the author of Therapy in the Age of Neuroscience, and has written articles on Focusing and neuroscience which can be found at focusing.co.uk/neuroscience

    Friday, July 30, 2021, 8:00am - 10:00am PST

    This live online class is pay-what-you-can. The suggested payment for US residents is $30.

    Resolving Conflicts Through Skillful Communication

    Focusing Meets Nonviolent Communication

    An online, interactive 4-session course facilitated by Amona Buechler. Takes place on 4 Wednesdays: August 4, 11, 18, and 25, 2021.

    Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Focusing in combination offer a beautiful ground for exploring how to refine these delicate listening and communication skills.

    Presented by The International Focusing Institute

    August 4, 11, 18, and 25, 2021

    Fruitful communication starts with owning our feelings when challenging situations present themselves to us. This means to go beyond right and wrong, to stop pointing fingers, at others in blame, or at ourselves causing shame. Instead, can we become interested in how differently each of us perceives what’s happening? Can we become interested in how each of us feels about it?

    So, let’s get curious.

    When this open and curious atmosphere has been established, this can enable us to more clearly recognize needs and wishes, our own and those of the other party involved. As we learn to truly listen to one another, unseen pathways toward resolving a conflict can be found.

    But there is yet another step: How can we empathically, honestly, and self-responsibly communicate with one another so that we feel inspired to meet each other’s needs?

    Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and Focusing in combination offer a beautiful ground for exploring how to refine these delicate listening and communication skills.

    This workshop provides a space to explore the following:

    • Recognize, accept, and express our feelings and needs
    • Identify what we hope to experience when our wishes are being met
    • Learn to self-responsibly and empathically express ourselves
    • Discover new possibilities of meeting each other’s needs
    • Release the habit of judging and demanding
    • Recognize unspoken needs behind the words of others
    • Learn to respect everyone’s freedom of choice, including our own
    • Give space and time for that which is (yet) without words
    • Envision & sense into the joy of fulfilling each other’s wishes

    We will benefit from useful shortcuts as used in NVC to identify what feelings we are experiencing and what needs are present. Explicitly recognizing our feelings, needs, and wishes can be very eye-opening and breath-opening.

    We will benefit from learning the art of aimless inner listening into what’s initially vague and fuzzy, as practiced in Focusing…a way of freshly being with a felt experience for which we may not have words (yet).

    Prerequisite

    Familiarity with Focusing or Nonviolent Communication. If you have neither Focusing nor Nonviolent Communication experience, please book an online session with Amona before this course begins. This way you get to know and experience the basic tools in a one-to-one guided setting. Contact Amona for details at https://move-with-life.org/online/

    About Your Facilitator

    Amona Buechler has been offering courses, workshops, and sessions on- and offline since 1998. She is a certified Focusing Trainer as well as a certified Feldenkrais Practitioner. Before starting her journey with Focusing she had a 15-year foundation of daily meditation and regular Feldenkrais practice, two approaches in which the inner inquiry is taken on one's own. The challenge of expressing that, which is noticed inside to another person, and the interactive component in Focusing added a precious value to her growth process and work. Currently, Amona offers Basic Focusing Skills Courses. She also offers a variety of courses inspired by Focusing, with themes such as finding ease and clarity in one’s professional life. In co-facilitation with her sister, she offers retreats combining Focusing with Authentic Movement. With great fascination, Amona explores how insights from the Focusing process find their way into our lives, leading to self-responsible and empathic communication and wholehearted action.

    August 21, 11:00 AM to 03:30 PM


    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy catalyzes powerful change by bridging the gap between yoga and mind-body psychology. This form of mind-body therapy uses yoga postures, hands-on assists, and therapeutic dialogue to facilitate growth and healing. Clients are gently guided through a meditation that brings them to a state of self-awareness and inner presence, from which profound wisdom can arise. The result is clear insight and a practical, action-based approach to lasting life change.


    Course Objective

    Gain deep understanding of the Phoenix Rising Method™ and its paradigm of life change based on the intersection of Yoga, Buddhism, Psychology, and Neuroscience.


    Who can benefit from this program:

    Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, Mental Health Professionals, and others who want to empower students and clients to create more powerful, meaningful, and fulfilling lives in both classroom and practice environments.


    What to expect:

    • Learn the distinction between present-centered awareness (direct experience) and narrative referencing, and why this distinction is essential from a neuroscientific perspective.
    • Learn skills to engage others in direct experience through the body so that they can immerse themselves into a profound state of awareness.
    • Acquire tools to engage others in integrated mind-body practices.
    • Gain understanding of the process of change. Explore the interaction of the body, breath, mind intellect, and emotions.
    • Acquire tools for body-mind integration that leads to life changing action and an understanding of how to apply this approach in your own classes or private practice.

    Presenter Bio:

    Michael Lee, MA, Dip.Soc.Sci, Dip.T., C-IAYT, E-RYT500, Founder and Dean of Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy, grew up in Australia, where he worked as a teacher and behavioral scientist in the field of personal and organizational change before leaving for the USA in 1984. He wanted to learn about the effectiveness of yoga and Eastern practices for changing lives and so immersed himself at the Kripalu Center (then an ashram) in Massachusetts for two years. This began a career in yoga and yoga therapy with a focus on mental and emotional health now spanning 36 years. Michael founded Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy in 1986 based on his learning and integration of yoga and elements of contemporary psychology which is now supported by neuroscience.


    Michael is the author of two books, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy—Bridge from Body to Soul and Turn Stress Into Bliss. He is also a contributing author to the American Psychological Association published book Beyond Talk Therapy: Using movement and expressive techniques in clinical practice. Michael was a keynote speaker at SYTAR for the International Association of Yoga Therapists in 2016 and the opening keynote speaker at Yoga Australia Conference in 2018, as well as a regular presenter at other major conferences.

    Dates: 12 Sept – 18 Sept 2021
    Location: Whidbey Institute, Whidbey Island, WA


    SUMMARY
    MABT teaches therapists how to facilitate their clients’ ability to learn and develop interoceptive awareness (awareness of internal body sensations) and related skills for self-care and emotion regulation. MABT is an evidenced-based approach that is particularly helpful for clients who are disconnected from their bodies due to stress, pain, trauma, or chronic physical or mental health conditions. MABT is taught using therapist and /or client touch to teach fundamentals of interoceptive awareness and the more advanced capacity to sustain mindful interoceptive attention to inner experience. MABT increases emotional awareness and embodied sense-of self ~ research highlights increases in emotion regulation and well-being. 

    This course is offered by the Center for Mindful Body Awareness. Limited to 12 participants in order to provide personalized instructional support throughout the week. This course is for any therapist/clinician who is interested in incorporating interoceptive awareness into their practice and can include: bodyworkers, psychotherapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, mindfulness teachers, yoga therapists, etc. Please click on the following links to learn more about MABT
    (https://www.cmbaware.org/about-mabt/) and training approach used (https://www.cmbaware.org/training-programs/). 

    The course will take place at the beautiful Whidbey Institute ~ all accommodations will be single rooms, the food is superb, and meals can be made to address any dietary considerations. The cost of $2500 includes the program, accommodation and meals.

    Presenters:
    Cynthia Price, PhD MA LMT is the Center Director, a Research Professor at the University of WA, Cynthia developed the MABT approach as a body-psychotherapist, and has completely numerous studies examining the benefits of MABT in community setting (https://www.cmbaware.org/publications/).

    With Stella Resnick, PhD

    Online Zoom Two-weekend Training

    Friday and Saturday, September 17-18 & 24-25

    (AASECT, APA, MFT, LCSW, LPCC, and more)

    This didactive and experiential integrative approach blends interpersonal neurobiology, sexology, and present-centered processing as described in my 2019 book Body-to-Body Intimacy: Transformation Through love, Sex, and Neurobiology.

     

    Offering research and anecdotal evidence, group discussion, individual and group Gestalt experiential processing, conscious breathing methods, and present-centered improvised experiments, we explore the healing and growth-promoting powers of broadening the relational and erotic pleasure spectrums and how therapy itself can become more pleasure-focused.

    Each day in the four-day process we focus on a different pleasure theme with each day building on what came before it:

     

    Sept. 17: Pleasure Basics: Happiness and Contentment

    Sept.18: Intimacy Basics: Love and Romance

    Sept. 24: Sexual Basics: Erotic Arousal and Desire

    Sept. 25: Sweet Surrender: Letting Go and Orgasm

     

    Partial Scholarships are available for students and those who require financial assistance to attend.

    Through the Looking Glass: Using Imaginal Resources to Heal Shame

    A Workshop for Therapists and Other Helping Professionals with Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT & Bret Lyon PhD, SEP

     

    2 Saturdays, September 18 & 25, 2021
    10am–5:45pm PDT

    Working with shame cognitively can only get us so far. When clients get stuck in shame, the most powerful way to help them get unstuck may be to activate their imagination. In the Imaginal Realm, logic and time are fluid and flexible. What actually happened can be explored and changed. What was stuck in the cognitive realm can be reexamined and shifted. Shaming situations from the past can be revisited and resolved. In this workshop, we will utilize techniques from Drama Therapy, Focusing, Expressive Arts Therapy, Jungian active imagination processing and Hakomi. We will explore the critical voices and/or the childhood scenes that are still driving the internal shame dynamic in the client.

     

    You will learn to help clients:

    ·      Externalize shame so that it can be worked with directly.

    ·      Work with roles, parts and shame-based introjects.

    ·      Access strength, resilience, inner resources and role repertoire.

    ·      Find a deeper understanding by working with objects you already have in your office.

    ·      Utilize imaginal techniques to give the shame back, so that it stays in the Imaginal Realm.

     

    Once the shame is worked through in the Imaginal Realm, the client can interact with the world differently.

     

    There is no prerequisite for this course.

    Presented by: Michael Lee, with PRYT Faculty

    DAYS AND TIMES OF EVENT:

    September 25 - 26, 11:00 AM to 03:30 PM

    September 30,  2:00 PM to 03:15 PM // 06:00 PM to 07:15 PM

    October 2, 11:00 AM to 03:30 PM


    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy catalyzes powerful change by bridging the gap between yoga and mind-body psychology. This form of mind-body therapy uses yoga postures, hands-on assists, and therapeutic dialogue to facilitate growth and healing. Clients are gently guided through a meditation that brings them to a state of self-awareness and inner presence, from which profound wisdom can arise. The result is clear insight and a practical, action-based approach to lasting life change.


    Course Objective

    Gain deep understanding of the Phoenix Rising Method™ and its paradigm of life change based on the intersection of Yoga, Buddhism, Psychology, and Neuroscience.


    Who can benefit from this program:

    Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, Mental Health Professionals, and others who want to empower students and clients to create more powerful, meaningful, and fulfilling lives in both classroom and practice environments.


    What to expect:

    • Learn the distinction between present-centered awareness (direct experience) and narrative referencing, and why this distinction is essential from a neuroscientific perspective.
    • Learn skills to engage others in direct experience through the body so that they can immerse themselves into a profound state of awareness.
    • Acquire tools to engage others in integrated mind-body practices.
    • Gain understanding of the process of change. Explore the interaction of the body, breath, mind intellect, and emotions.
    • Acquire tools for body-mind integration that leads to life changing action and an understanding of how to apply this approach in your own classes or private practice.


    Hours: 16 hours total

    Prerequisites: Some yoga experience

    Recommended Reading: Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy: A Bridge from Body to Soul by Michael Lee

    Presenter Bio:

    Michael Lee, MA, Dip.Soc.Sci, Dip.T., C-IAYT, E-RYT500, Founder and Dean of Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy, grew up in Australia, where he worked as a teacher and behavioral scientist in the field of personal and organizational change before leaving for the USA in 1984. He wanted to learn about the effectiveness of yoga and Eastern practices for changing lives and so immersed himself at the Kripalu Center (then an ashram) in Massachusetts for two years. This began a career in yoga and yoga therapy with a focus on mental and emotional health now spanning 36 years. Michael founded Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy in 1986 based on his learning and integration of yoga and elements of contemporary psychology which is now supported by neuroscience.


    Michael is the author of two books, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy—Bridge from Body to Soul and Turn Stress Into Bliss. He is also a contributing author to the American Psychological Association published book Beyond Talk Therapy: Using movement and expressive techniques in clinical practice. Michael was a keynote speaker at SYTAR for the International Association of Yoga Therapists in 2016 and the opening keynote speaker at Yoga Australia Conference in 2018, as well as a regular presenter at other major conferences.

    Shame and trauma are both states of freeze. Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Shame almost always accompanies trauma—and being shamed can have a traumatic effect. In working with trauma, there is a tendency to miss the shame component that is often hiding in plain sight. And shame can be worked with most successfully as a form of trauma, utilizing many somatic techniques. Shame is also a primary emotion. And it has a strong cognitive component—the belief that “something is wrong with me”—that needs to be addressed.

    Being able to understand and have compassion for the parts of the person that are still frozen in shame and trauma helps us be able to sit with a client without having our own shame triggered. In this workshop, we will explore the connection between shame and trauma and look at ways to unlock somatic and imaginal resources to work with both effectively.

    Course Level - Intermediate

    PREREQUISITE: This workshop is open to students who have either taken at least one Healing Shame workshop with us or who have significant training in working with trauma.

    Tamalpa Institute Level 1 Training Program
    PERSONAL EMBODIMENT OF THE LIFE/ART PROCESS®

    Level 1 Online Training Program: Personal Embodiment of the Life/Art Process®

    Learn how to use artistic and therapeutic principles to uncover and explore autobiographical material through a “body mythology” that connects you to the compelling events, issues, and questions in your life. The training includes experiential exploration through the arts, philosophy, and theory of the practice, and basic maps and methods of the work

    Presented by the Tamalpa Institute

    January 14, 2022 - December 4, 2022

    In Level 1, we use artistic and therapeutic principles to uncover and explore autobiographical material through a “body mythology” that connects us to the compelling events, issues, and questions in our lives. Working with intermodal art mediums – movement/dance, drawing, vocalizing, writing, and dialogues – we reflect on our history, who we are now, and the changes that we would like to embody in order to live more artfully in all aspects of our lives.

    Maps & Methods students will experience over the course of the training:

    Body Part Mapping: Includes a study of the movement repertoire, associated themes and particular images and life experiences associated with each body part. 

    Integrative Movement/Dance: Unique activities and exercises which have been developed and taught at Tamalpa Institute over 40 years. These practices are representative of our movement-based approach to expressive arts education and therapy.

    The Psychokinetic Imagery Process: A map for using movement, drawing and narrative to generate body/mind awareness, creative expression, and learning through multimedia art making.

    RSVP Cycles: A system used to design and present experiences, performances and to generate collective creativity.

    During the final phases of the training, a self-portrait is created and explored. Each student’s self-portrait performance is enacted as a ritual within the safe container created by the Level 1 cohort and faculty. In the online format of the training, these performances are shared with the cohort and faculty via Zoom. The training ends with a harvest of the learning experience.

    About Tamalpa Institute: Founded in 1978 by dance and expressive arts therapy pioneers Anna Halprin and Daria Halprin, Tamalpa Institute is internationally recognized for its unique approach to movement, dance, and expressive arts therapy and education.

    Healing Shame in the Inner Teenager and Actual Teenagers

    A Workshop for Therapists and Other Helping Professionals with Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP

    2 Fridays: November 12 & 19, 2021

    10am–5:45pm PST

    Online – Live and recorded, using Zoom

    $395 full price / $375 with full payment by October 8 / Special price for interns

    13 CE credits available for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs in California* – $40 fee

    (See website for details) 


    Our inner teenager lives on! Though we may develop adult bodies and think our teen years are long behind us, somewhere inside that frustrated, scared, ornery, embarrassed, desperate-to-fit-in teen is still alive, deeply influencing our thoughts, words and actions.

    In this workshop, we will teach you how to help your clients reestablish a healthy relationship with their inner teen—how to both listen and talk to that sensitive, creative and essential part of us. We will teach about developing identity, boundary setting, relationship dynamics, body image, nourishment, healthy eating and healthy self-care, and understanding the shame and fear that get in the way.

    In this workshop you will:

    • Join and explore the world of the teen. Find out where there was squelching of identity.

    • Provide an inner champion or protector to provide healthy boundaries and a kind adult influencer/role model.

    • Re-enact scenes when a teenager was shamed and/or subjected to peer pressure and/or made bad decisions, and repair or replace what they wish they could have said and done.

    • Explore the psychosocial development of the teen years using Erickson’s stages “Identity vs. Role Confusion” and “Intimacy vs. Isolation.” 

    • Use drama therapy and expressive therapy processes, including role play, enactment and working with symbols and objects, to create a new coherent narrative that transforms the shame and trauma of teen years into new awareness, resilience and creativity.

    This workshop will also cover case presentations, clinical processes, and exercises, for working with teens age 13 to 19. Each different age and each teen need different techniques. We cover therapeutic storytelling and story-making, therapeutic writing and poetry, and how to work with difficult emotions, such as when the client does not want to speak.

    There is no prerequisite for this course.

    Judith Blackstone, Ph.D, in a USABP Spotlight Series Event, presents an afternoon to explore the healing power of fundamental consciousness.

    "Just as an open hand is hidden within a fist, our true nature, with its innate capacities for happiness, love, and wisdom, is hidden within our pain and numbness. Just as we can open a fist to reveal a hand, our unbound, unconstructed being can emerge from our pain and breathe again."

    ―Dr. Judith Blackstone, 
    Trauma and the Unbound Body

    This event will be recorded and available for members and non-members who register for this event. This course will not include CEs.

    Check back as new information on this event happens regularly and updates are ongoing. The following is an idea for how this event will go.  


    Presenter Information

    Amazon description states, "Dr. Blackstone weaves her 30-plus years of psychotherapy practice to present a simple yet revolutionary approach to healing trauma. She writes, "All of the constrictions in our fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles and organs) are moments of our past that we have stopped in their tracks and held in that way, unconsciously. They are frozen moments of our past." Trauma and the Unbound Body explains how and why the body constricts in response to trauma, causing physical and emotional pain. Dr. Blackstone guides us through step-by-step processes to unwind those constrictions by attuning to fundamental consciousness, setting the body free of trauma once and for all by uncovering an unbreakable, unified ground of being."

    Judith is an innovative, experienced teacher in the contemporary fields of nondual realization and spiritual, relational and somatic psychotherapy. She developed the Realization Process, a direct path for realizing fundamental (nondual) consciousness, as well as the application of nondual realization for psychological, relational and physical healing. She currently has six books in publication and has taught the Realization Process for over thirty-five years throughout the United States and Europe. Her newest book is Trauma and the Unbound Body: the Healing Power of Fundamental Consciousness.

    Judith studied with many teachers in the Hindu traditions (Advaita Vedanta, Bhakti and Kashmir Shaivism), and the Zen Buddhist and Tibetan Buddhist traditions. She was in residence at a Zen monastery for a year and has received teachings, over the past three decades, in the Mahamudra and Dzog-chen paths of Tibetan Buddhism. However, the Realization Process practices for embodied nondual awakening emerged outside of any traditional lineage. The practices arose in response to her own needs for healing and realization, and the needs of the people in her classes and private practice. Her main teacher has been nature–the subtle emanations from all living forms, the challenges presented by a severe back injury, the natural unwinding, in meditation, of the body, heart and mind toward openness, and the spontaneous emergence of fundamental consciousness.

    She has a Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology and a Ph.D. in Psychology, Eastern Religion and Embodiment. She trained at the Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy in New York City. She has thirty-five years of clinical experience as a psychotherapist and is now retired from private practice.

    Judith is the author of Trauma and the Unbound Body: the Healing Power of Fundamental Consciousness, Belonging Here: A Guide for the Spiritually Sensitive Person; The Enlightenment Process; The Intimate Life; The Subtle Self and The Empathic Ground: Intersubjectivity and Nonduality in the Psychotherapeutic Process. Her essays have been published in the Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, the International Journal of Self Psychology, the USA Body Psychotherapy Journal, Undivided, Inner Directions Journal and the anthologies, Listening from the Heart of Silence, Finding a Way, Being Called, and The Self-Acceptance Project. A six-CD audio series of Judith explaining and teaching the Realization Process is available from Sounds True.

    She has presented the Realization Process and papers on the interface of psychotherapy and nondual spirituality at Psychology of the Self conferences, the Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy conference, the Towards a Science of Consciousness conference, the Consciousness and Experiential Psychology conference at Oxford University, UK, the USA Body Psychotherapy conference, the Science and Nonduality conference (SAND), the Society for Consciousness Studies conference and the Conference on Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy.

    With her husband, Zoran Josipovic, Judith founded the Nonduality Institute, dedicated to the practice and scientific study of nonduality. For more information on Zoran’s scientific research, visit www.nondualityinstitute.org

    Shame and Aging – Healing the Shame of Aging in a Society that Worships Youth

    A Workshop for Therapists and Helping Professionals

    with Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP and Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT

    2 Saturdays: December 4 & 11, 2021

    10am–5:45pm PST

    Online – Live and recorded, using Zoom

    $395 full price / $375 with full payment by October 30 / Special price for interns

    13 CE credits available for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs in California* – $40 fee

    (See website for details)

    We all go through it. No one is immune. And nothing produces more universal shame in our society than aging. Whereas many societies have deep respect for people as they age and see a vital role for elders, our society still worships youth.

    In this workshop, we will explore and learn to be more comfortable with our own aging process. And we will explore ways to help clients talk about, explore and heal their own shame around aging. We will:

    • Discover ways to help clients become aware of the many messages they received and continue to receive about aging and body image from family and society.

    • Learn ways to help clients cope with the shame of not being able to do all that they once did.

    • Understand counter-shaming techniques to help ourselves and our clients find pride and joy in the new reality—seeing that there are real gains as well as losses in this new stage of life.

    • Work with the shame that can cause and result from sicknesses and injuries.

    • Identify challenges in being looked at as unimportant and “not up to par” by a youth-oriented society and the layers of shame that can occur.

    • Discover how to make the necessary adjustments so we can regain access to the life force and creativity that we still have in a grounded and embodied way.

    • Begin to shift and transform cultural stereotypes about aging by finding a reservoir of vitality, inner vision and clear action for the next phase of life, that may be hidden under shame!

    There is no prerequisite for this course.

    Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Essentials

    SHORT SUMMARY:

    In this introductory intensive, you will gain greater insight into the mind-body connection and learn to skillfully apply the tools of yoga in an individualized direct experience using the fundamental principles and techniques of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy.

    Presented by: Michael Lee, with PRYT Faculty

    DAYS AND TIMES OF EVENT:

    December 4 - 5, 11:00 AM to 03:30 PM

    December 8,  2:00 PM to 03:15 PM // 06:00 PM to 07:15 PM

    December 11, 11:00 AM to 03:30 PM


    EVENT DESCRIPTION:

    Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy catalyzes powerful change by bridging the gap between yoga and mind-body psychology. This form of mind-body therapy uses yoga postures, hands-on assists, and therapeutic dialogue to facilitate growth and healing. Clients are gently guided through a meditation that brings them to a state of self-awareness and inner presence, from which profound wisdom can arise. The result is clear insight and a practical, action-based approach to lasting life change.


    Course Objective

    Gain deep understanding of the Phoenix Rising Method™ and its paradigm of life change based on the intersection of Yoga, Buddhism, Psychology, and Neuroscience.


    Who can benefit from this program:

    Yoga Therapists, Yoga Teachers, Mental Health Professionals, and others who want to empower students and clients to create more powerful, meaningful, and fulfilling lives in both classroom and practice environments.


    What to expect:

    • Learn the distinction between present-centered awareness (direct experience) and narrative referencing, and why this distinction is essential from a neuroscientific perspective.
    • Learn skills to engage others in direct experience through the body so that they can immerse themselves into a profound state of awareness.
    • Acquire tools to engage others in integrated mind-body practices.
    • Gain understanding of the process of change. Explore the interaction of the body, breath, mind intellect, and emotions.
    • Acquire tools for body-mind integration that leads to life changing action and an understanding of how to apply this approach in your own classes or private practice.


    Hours: 16 hours total

    Prerequisites: Some yoga experience

    Recommended Reading: Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy: A Bridge from Body to Soul by Michael Lee


    NOTE ON DATES: For the mid-week session, students will choose ONE of the two times listed to attend.


    Presenter Bio:

    Michael Lee, MA, Dip.Soc.Sci, Dip.T., C-IAYT, E-RYT500, Founder and Dean of Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy, grew up in Australia, where he worked as a teacher and behavioral scientist in the field of personal and organizational change before leaving for the USA in 1984. He wanted to learn about the effectiveness of yoga and Eastern practices for changing lives and so immersed himself at the Kripalu Center (then an ashram) in Massachusetts for two years. This began a career in yoga and yoga therapy with a focus on mental and emotional health now spanning 36 years. Michael founded Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy in 1986 based on his learning and integration of yoga and elements of contemporary psychology which is now supported by neuroscience.


    Michael is the author of two books, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy—Bridge from Body to Soul and Turn Stress Into Bliss. He is also a contributing author to the American Psychological Association published book Beyond Talk Therapy: Using movement and expressive techniques in clinical practice. Michael was a keynote speaker at SYTAR for the International Association of Yoga Therapists in 2016 and the opening keynote speaker at Yoga Australia Conference in 2018, as well as a regular presenter at other major conferences.
