Phase One: Self-Energy and Managers
6 Weeks (Jan 16th -Feb 20th)
Our first two weeks will focus on how to uncover, recognize, and experience the curiosity, clarity, compassion, and calm of Self-Energy as the basis for all healing work to come. The following four weeks of this course we will focus on working with our manager parts to heal our relationship with them, gain insight around our resistance to healing work and happiness (aka vulnerability), and get “permission” to go deeper.
Phase Two: Firefighters
4 weeks (March 13th-April 3rd)
Four weeks of healing our relationship with our reactive and most problematic defensive parts; the parts of us that would be our best allies; the parts that hold our propensity for rage, addiction, numbness, callousness, perfectionism, self-loathing, and intrusive thoughts. We will help these parts to trust Self-Energy, and work with them to find new roles that they will enjoy, such as helping us be more disciplined and purposeful.
Phase Three: Exiles
4 weeks (April 10th - May 1st)
Four weeks of working with our inner children; the parts of us that hold our propensity for spontaneity, sweetness, playfulness, empathy… and yet get bogged down holding our deepest wounds and most adverse experiences. We will help these parts to trust Self-Energy, recalibrate distorted beliefs, mature, and release their burdens. The result can be a profound release of new energy and zeal for life.
