The Sacred Path of the Therapist: Modern Healing, Ancient Wisdom, and Client Transformation
Friday, March 26th, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
*This event will be held in TWO sessions.
Presenter: Irene R. Siegel, Ph.D., LCSW
Drawing from her unique experiences working with master shamans as well as practicing as a psychotherapist and an Approved EMDR Consultant, Irene Siegel discusses the evolving role of the therapist as both therapist and healer. Dr. Siegel will follow the information as written in her book of the same title.
Integrating Western psychological understanding with ancient wisdom traditions, this presentation addresses how spiritual resonance is achieved within the psychotherapeutic process. Participants will learn how mindfulness practices and attunement can help them move clients toward recovery and beyond, allowing full potential to emerge within a shared coherent field of awakening consciousness. Topics include translating transpersonal theory into practice, understanding the human energy field, and the integration of psychotherapy and spiritual initiation.
Using lessons from the evolving field of transpersonal psychology, as well as guided meditation exercises, participants will learn to access the innate inner wisdom and healing potential of their clients, expanding the content and context of therapy. EMDR is used as an example of integrative therapy, but the tools and techniques may be applied to a varied group of therapeutic modalities. Prior understanding of EMDR is not required.
