About Time

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles,CA90025

Psychotherapy is about perceiving and changing personal, interpersonal or intergenerational patterns. Patterns exist both in nature and in human nature, and our brains are designed to be pattern makers. But where do these patterns come from and what is the deepest most useful level of drawing connections? This seminar is all about fractals: perhaps the most universal pattern of patterns in nature. Fractal patterns extend across mind, body, brain, soul, world, and relationships.

Introduction to Voice Dialogue 2018-1

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles,CA90025

Voice Dialogue gives us a map and an experiential method of learning about these selves, embrace them and integrate them – giving us a sense of wholeness and well being.  It is a unique and powerful blend of attachment theory, Depth therapy and Family Systems work.

Voice Dialogue emphasizes three aspects of consciousness. The person who is the Client is asked to embody and give voice to any and all aspects of the mind/body/soul that desires expression. The facilitator mirrors this expression and holds a presence with warm curiosity. The group serves as the Container holding a sacred space as they witness the moment-to-moment unfolding of this unique experience of self.

The Parenting Process 2018-1

May 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles,CA90025

In spite of the best intentions, adults tend to repeat the very injuries with their partners that they themselves experienced as children. When intense conflicts arise over seemingly insignificant things, they are really tender spots from childhood that resurface in the relationship. These baffling conversations may happen over and over because their underlying themes are elusive. This workshop is reparative, healing current emotional wounds within and between family members. It attends to intrapsychic injuries from childhood promoting adult maturation and more harmonious relationships.

Neuroaffective Regulation: Observation and Intervention 2018-1

August 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Insight Center, 1404 Greenfield Ave.
Los Angeles,CA90025

We often hear clients say that they feel like their body was hijacked in the face of a triggering event. They can’t think, their nervous system seems to have a mind of its own. They loose their sense of home with their sense of self compromised. Mindfulness and somatic awareness practices can be key factors in returning to a secure experience of their felt-sense, a return home to safety.
