The Art and Science of Presence: Applications for the Consulting Room
Copyright :


It seems that human consciousness—dominated by the automatic survival instincts of our Stone Age ancestors—must now evolve very quickly if we wish to meet the many social and ecological challenges we face on this precious planet. What role, if any, can therapists play in shaping the emergence of this new consciousness? This workshop will focus on how findings in a range of disciplines—neuroscience, quantum physics, attachment theory, and the emerging science of presence—can be applied in everyday therapeutic practice. You’ll explore:

  • Why integration—the process of creating differentiated linkages among different brain systems and aspects of personality functioning—is essential to the process of psychological healing
  • Clinical tools to enhance the integration of consciousness, including The Wheel of Awareness, a reflective exercise that opens up pathways to expanding personal identity and moving beyond the limiting sense of a skin-defined self
  • How to increase your own sense of moment-to-moment immediacy and presence in creating healing connections with your clients
