The New Online PSEN US Training Year

FACING CHAOS, UNCERTAINTY & COMPLEXITY
TOLERATING DYNAMIC TENSION IN SERVICE OF CHANGE AND GROWTH 

Embodied presence and active witnessing deepens the practitioner’s ability to be receptively moved and informed by their character, thus becoming more effectively responsive to the nuances of the client’s unfolding process.

PSEN Training Segments 

Kundalini Breathwork

Consists of optional embodiment opportunities each morning to start the training day with yoga postures and/or pranayama breath work. 

Practice Session Dyads

Our primary practice tool to develop the ability to deepen process sessions for practitioners, and for the client to learn more about their own depths.

Peer Support Groups

A primary support function for each trainee, it provides a gathering space to integrate or complete fresh learning that happens during the training week.

Embodied Meditations

Deepening our embodiment is fundamental to the mind’s ability to calm itself, and be present to a felt exchange with the world around us.

Using A Practitioner’s Mind 

An important segment that allows for the practitioner to think in new and useful ways about their client and themselves during & after a session.

Evening Integration

An informal, communal relaxation and ‘down’ time, for spontaneous social exchanges in ‘mutually wanted’ space, for the enjoyment of being together.

Training Lectures

Embodied transmissions of emotional and psychological content relevant to the depth work and process facilitation taught in each week.

Large Group Supervision

Offered through individual ‘demo’ sessions done by staff or students, followed by questions and explorations taken further by the group as a whole. 

Community Bonding

The work is deep, meaningful and intense. The engagement and support of the large group is a key to each person’s development and learning.  

 Required Reading

The Readings Provide The Clinical Foundation For Our Learning

  • The books are required.
  • Some PDF reads will be provided.
  • Some of Michael’s Lecture Notes will also be provided.

 

Having fun and carrying a light-hearted spirit of play provides an essential balance to the gravity and depth of the process facilitation work!

Process Teachings

Support how deeper psychological and emotional processes come alive in us, and move through us.  

We reference these frameworks for deepening processes regularly throughout the training. They provide us with a useful lens through which we can keep our attention on the unfolding process.

Process teachings help to create the conditions necessary to bring to the surface the naturally unfolding, deeper movements of our lived experience.

Grounding and enlivening the practitioner’s body and mind

 

to facilitate deeper meaning and vitality in the client.

 

PSEN Core Values

Our core values are what we consider to be the most necessary attributes that we must cultivate in order to become an embodied presence – both for ourselves and for the clients we serve.

Cultivating these core values helps us to gradually transform our lives. Our values help us to become more conscious and more connected to the larger world around us, supporting us as we find our rightful place in life.

Training Content

The view from one of the bouldering climbs near Lifebridge sanctuary.  

 

 

We can make our minds

so like still water

that beings gather about us

that they may see 

it may be,

their own images,

and so live for a moment

with a clearer,

perhaps even fiercer life

because of our quiet.

Our Training Community

We use a circular learning model for our training, which allows us to accept a certain percentage of new trainees in our training annually.

Therefore, trainees in our learning group will have varied years of participation.  We find that this greatly enhances the learning and deepening process, especially for the new arrivals.

We prefer that our trainees have prior experience and training in either psychotherapy, counseling, body-oriented work, or some type of depth facilitation.
