"...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. This program teaches valuable skills that can be applied to any form of psychotherapy that allows for the client to process information in the silent spaces of the imagination within an experience of mindful awareness and expanded consciousness.
You will learn to identify intuitive feedback mechanisms and apply it within a nonlinear, moment to moment integrative therapy through video recorded lectures, case presentation, and experiential exercise. This program is highly experiential with the aide of audio recorded guided meditations. You will learn to apply new skills to your practice, allowing your clients to have the opportunity to process trauma from an expanded state within a shared interconnected field of information and energy flow.
