This workshop will show you how we can therapeutically bring about a transformational integration to our mind, body and spirit even at the molecular level. We will demonstrate how therapeutic intervention changes our cells and how this integration of self results in a natural balance, empowering harmony of the self, even in the face of great distress. Genetics do not have to determine our destiny. You will learn, as a holistic practitioner of integrative psychotherapy, how one can alter not only our perspectives and relationships but also our biology.
Is enlightenment possible? We propose Erickson’s naturalistic – utilization therapy and Rossi’s 4-Stage Creative Process are consistent with yoga’s science of self-inquiry, mental dexterity and Buddha’s 4 Noble Truths. We will practice gentle yoga exercise for all fitness levels and share transformational stories of our new neuroscience of mind-body therapy.
Zen is a venerable tradition, illuminating inner nature. Neuroscience corroborates that Zen enhances mind and brain in extraordinary ways, helpful for therapy, and this workshop describes new findings. Participants are guided into the Zen experience—open and aware. They will enhance their hypnotherapeutic sensitivities and learn Zen methods for working with clients.
Departing from neurophysiological differences between Hypnosis versus Meditation we will focus on metaphor creating and its clinical application. Participants will learn a systematic technique to help patient in order to create solving problems metaphors.
Participants are invited to explore and transform Ericksonian methods by creating meaningful associations to three cutting-edge conceptualizations. How the Principle of Uncertainty or of quantum potentials, for instance, is applicable to seeding & utilization; how Erickson’s existential philosophy is consistent with indicators of high Spiritual Intelligence (SQ), and how Rossi’s avant-garde proposals envelop all of them.
We illustrate how easy it is to integrate yoga narrative and movement with Ericksonian mind-body work. We engage the entire audience in a live experience of facilitating brain plasticity for the creation of new consciousness. Demonstrations with volunteers illustrate how to utilize the natural 4-stage creative cycle of problem solving and healing in everyday life. Every level of fitness and mindfulness from beginners to mature wisdom gurus are welcome!
The use of guided imagery using hypnosis will be demonstrated with a volunteer as a method of doing brief therapy. The volunteer may present a physical or behavioral difficulty for this demonstration. Also demonstrated will be the use of physical anchors.
Come see and experience how to move seamlessly and effortlessly into a conversational trance induction while introducing clients to meditation. You will learn how to dissolve the difference between description (“Here’s what meditation is and how you do it”) and invitation (“You can just notice and note the feel, . . . the sense . . . of your breath”). The method will be demonstrated with a volunteer, but everyone in the audience will have an opportunity, if they wish, to participate in the experiential part of the process.
In Turkey I had the opportunity to research the resources about Sufism (for example Rumi is the most well known sufi in the world and he lived in Turkey) and I studied it both as a student and as a therapist about 15 years. Sufism has actually two big steps. Understanding yourself and life first by mind than by heart. While I was creating the Optimum Balance Model (OBM) I think I did the first part. During this conversation I'll try to explain steps of the inner journey of a Sufi, I'll share my experiences and the story of how they try to tame their Ego.
