"...looking deep within the mind, in the very most interior part of the self, when the mind becomes very, very quiet, and one listens very carefully, in that infinite Silence, the soul begins to whisper, and its feather-soft voice takes one far beyond what the mind could ever imagine, beyond anything rationality could possibly tolerate, beyond anything logic can endure." - Ken Wilber

This workshop teaches an innovative approach of using double focus of attention from egoic to expanded awareness through intuitive mindful skills and resonance, enhancing the AIP model within which EMDR is based. Current research and literature will explain the convergence of psychology, science, and spirituality. The relationship to an accelerated process of higher brain integration and awareness will be linked to skills of silent intuitive processes within an interconnected field of energy and informational flow between therapist and client within each phase of EMDR.

You will learn to identify intuitive feedback mechanisms and apply it within a nonlinear, moment to moment integrative therapy through discussion, case presentation, and experiential exercise. This workshop is highly experiential with the opportunity to apply new skills with the EMDR protocol allowing your clients to have the opportunity to process trauma from an expanded state within a shared interconnected field of information and energy flow.

You will:
  • Indentify the relationship between science, psychology, and spiritual philosophy as it applies to resonance and mindful awareness.

  • Develop skills of meditation and mindful awareness.

  • Identify skills of alternative ways of knowing such as inner vision, hearing, knowing, kinesthetic bodily sensations.

  • Identify skills of internal intuitive tracking to determine client/therapist resonance as an assessment and healing tool.

  • Apply the skills of mindful awareness, resonance, and internal feedback mechanisms into the EMDR protocol, creating a non-linear approach within the standard protocol.
