Description

When we feel stuck—repeating patterns in relationships or avoiding them, not finding joy in work, living with anxiety or depression, even being frustrated in our spiritual practice—we can deeply benefit from emotional healing.

This highly experiential workshop creates a safe space for exercises that facilitate greater aliveness for those of us plagued by chronic low self-esteem; difficulty being assertive; persistent anxiety, depression, substance abuse or recovery issues; and the long-term effects of trauma and family dysfunction.

Healing occurs when our wounds are given thoughtful attention, unraveling the coping habits with which we avoided pain in the past, but do not work for us now. Without emotional healing, healthy pleasure in current relationships is hard to cultivate because old coping mechanisms return when we are under stress.

Upon completion of this workshop participants will be better able to:

  • Describe the betrayal of insight and wisdom that originates in the psychoanalytic pleasure principle and libido theory 
  • Discuss earlier attachment theory and the inevitable developmental conflict
  • Demonstrate a clear understanding of the developmental hurdles that emerge with gender identity awareness at both the Oedipal stage and at puberty
  • Recognize how healthy aggression is both a deeply personal expression towards goals of creativity and connection to loved ones that is highly respectful of others
  • Discuss a developmental pathway and theory of dysfunctional defense mechanisms as a response to previous emotional wounding
  • Utilize effective tools to help themselves as practitioners and others manage intimacy, authority, and the therapeutic relationship within the various contexts of their lives
