Comprehensive Resource Model Basic Certification Training
Jan 23 – Jan 26 all-day

The Comprehensive Resource Model for the Treatment of Complex PTSD provides the neurobiological scaffolding that allows for fear responses to be extinguished while the client is fully present in the moment. The CRM provides the opportunity for re-connection to one’s true self; to the meaning of the truth of one’s life; and to the ability to embody love in one’s actions. Remembering and reconnecting to our internal as well as ancestral resources and joy is as important to this process as is the integration of traumatic and painful memories through the removal of the distressing emotions they have been carrying.

This method of resourcing allows for a healing alchemy: the experience of re-connecting to the innate resources in the soma within the context of our pain allows for the transformation of suffering from emotional and behavioral fight-flight-freeze to the manifestation of our spiritual purpose through action while living in a human, physical body. This is what we desire, what we are looking for, consciously or unconsciously.

Becoming BodyWise: A Weekend with Dr. Rachel Carlton Abrams
Feb 1 – Feb 3 all-day

Spend an invigorating and insightful weekend with Dr. Rachel Carlton Abrams, author of the groundbreaking book BodyWise, described by Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette as “Direct, deeply knowledgeable, and inspiring.”

A Stanford University and UCSF trained physician, Dr. Rachel will lead you on a journey of exploration over the weekend of February 1 – 3 or March 8 – 10. Dr. Rachel will guide you towards a deep understanding of the wisdom and intelligence that lives within your body.

By focusing on the five fundamentals of health: eating, sleeping, moving, loving, and finding purpose, you will gradually learn to tune into your body’s language and identify the places that prevent your full, vital expression as a living, loving being. Once you can understand the messages your body is sending you, you can leverage your new body wisdom to create vitality and health.

Be prepared to experience the miracles that happen when your mind, heart, and body are aligned!
