Men’s Retreat: Action Change Group for Post-Traumatic Growth @ Temenos Community Retreat House
Aug 2 – Aug 4 all-day

Men today are facing a world that challenges notions of identity and what it means to be a ‘man’. In order to find harmony in our life and society, we need to reflect on who we are within the world, strive towards accepting the various aspects of our own identity, while also building a more inclusive society. We must face the internal conflicts that tear us apart and block us from emotional intimacy, find a better footing in these challenging times as we define for ourselves who we want to be, and reawaken our wholeness after trauma.

This workshop explores various aspects of our experience and how it has impacted us in our work, in our relationships with others, and ourselves.

Potential topics to be explored will trauma, loss, addictions, recovery, culture, race, sexual orientation, gender, identity, disabilities, spiritual beliefs, ageism, inclusivity, and diversity.

Using action methods inspired by the latest healing knowledge, we invite you to join us in this men’s group. Together, we will increase the strengths within ourselves, transform our defenses, and cultivate post-traumatic growth through experiential therapy, psychodrama, and the creative arts.

In examining the roles within ourselves, we can discern which ones contribute to us being the best men we can be, while also adding new roles to expand beyond the limits of our current selves. This workshop is experiential in nature, providing anyone who self-identifies as male with a safe place for personal work..

Residential Retreat Price: $1000- Early Registration Available

Workshop fee includes tuition,meals and shared room.

The Brain in Action, the Neurobiology of Trauma @ Spain TBA
Dec 5 – Dec 8 all-day

People who have experienced traumatic events can have significant changes in the neurobiology of their brain. The right brain holds emotions, relationship information, and unprocessed trauma, often in the form of flashbacks, body memories, intrusive thoughts and dissociated feelings. It is always turned on by an overactive amygdala. The left brain’s coherent function, which provides meaning to stay in the here and now, is interrupted by stress hormones as the result of danger signals from the amygdala.

Participants will learn to use the Body Double (bd) intervention to work  with the energetic body and the ‘rhythmic rupture’ it suffers, along with the physical body and the brain, due to traumatic events. The brain-in-action, along with attachment structures, are taught through demonstration and live supervised practice and can be used immediately following the workshop in individual, couples and family therapy, as well as by educators and community organizers. This workshop expands the repertoire of students and practitioners of emdr, eft, sensory motor integration, as well as drama therapy and psychodrama.

More information coming soon!

Transforming the Trauma Triangle @ Bangalore
Feb 8 – Feb 11 all-day
Transforming the Trauma Triangle @ Bangalore

The Therapeutic Spiral Model’s (TSM) “Trauma Triangle” is a unique configuration that clarifes the destructive cycle of victim, perpetrator, and abandoning authority. Indistinction to Karpman’s Triangle, this last role was created by TSM to explain the subtle, yet damaging, presence of someone who was absent—not there to rescue—i.e., there was no appropriate authority.

The Trauma Triangle represents a closed circuit of energy embedded in the personality structure of those who have survived cruelty or trauma, repeating itself as life-long patterns of abuse and neglect. This training provides tools that empower transformation of self-neglect to self-care and that instill healthy problem-solving.

Participants gain a deeper understanding of the internal personality and neurobiological structure of PTSD; learn to integrate TSM’s Prescriptive Roles & Safety Structures into clinical practice, and experience the power and depth of a TSM group process that is used across cultures.

This workshop offers training hours for Psychodrama and can be a stand-alone or foundation course for TSI’s International Certification Program in Trauma Therapy.
