Spirituality is feeling like a whole and complete person with meaning and purpose. It is an inner path enabling you to discover the true essence of your being; the deepest values, morals, beliefs, and meaning by which you live. Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. Transpersonal psychology is a school of psychology that integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience with the framework of modern psychology. It is also possible to define it as “spiritual psychology.” The Transpersonal has been defined as “experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, psyche or cosmos.” Issues considered in transpersonal psychology include spiritual self-development, spiritual evolution, intuition, personal growth, healing, and wellness. Each individual is a unique unity of mind, emotions, heart, body, and soul. Respect is given to the entire person, all possibilities of being, and experiences that are beyond the ordinary, ego, and self. Spiritual Psychology techniques help individuals heal the soul and spirit by releasing limiting thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and patterns. Spiritual Psychology can help you feel whole and complete and able to reach your full potential.

This workshop will introduce you to Spiritual Psychology Theories, concepts, and techniques to support your own healing journey and path to wholeness. For those of you that are holistic healers, you can also use these tools to assist your clients and patients on their journey. Receive an overview of Spiritual psychological theories and techniques including Transpersonal Psychology, Humanistic Psychology, Positive Psychology, Holistic Psychology, and Cognitive Behavioral Psychology. Learn how to hold space and facilitate healing. Learn about the Healing Crisis, Dark Night of the Soul, Kundalini Awakening, and Spiritual Emergencies. Learn how these crises of the spirit mimic emotional illness and how to assist someone experiencing one. Learn how to integrate, center, and ground. Receive an overview of Archetypal Astrology, how to use it, and how it can impact your healing sessions. We will cover Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, The Psycho-Spiritual Framework, Cartographies of the Psyche, and ways to utilize this information in transformational healing sessions. We will also cover the Spectrum of Consciousness, ways to access and enter the spectrum, and introduce participants to altered states of consciousness as a powerful tool of personal growth, insight, healing, and spirituality. Fee: $199. This class is 8 hours long with an hour lunch break. 

 

Prerequisite: None. This workshop is open to everyone with a focus on Reiki practitioners, yoga teachers, massage therapists, bodyworkers, holistic practitioners, herbalists, aromatherapists, nurses, social workers, counselors, and other holistic healthcare providers.

 

Goal of this Workshop: This is a professional development and continuing education class open to Reiki practitioners, massage therapists, bodyworkers, life coaches, intuitives, and other holistic practitioners. As Reiki and other holistic modalities become more and more popular, learning additional techniques can greatly enhance your client healing sessions by adding a spiritual psychology/spiritual counseling component. Learning additional techniques can also improve your business potential by giving you more experience and knowledge than other providers. There is a need and demand for quality holistic practitioners as more venues (Hospitals, Hospices, Clinics, etc) are adding holistic and spiritual services to satisfy clients and patients. This is also a great workshop for social workers, counselors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to learn spiritual techniques and concepts to integrate into their healthcare to make it more holistic.

 

Please note: This workshop presents spiritual and holistic approaches that treat the whole person. These services are considered alternative and complementary. They can greatly complement and accentuate Western Medicine and Conventional psychological/counseling approaches but they should not take the place of them.

 

Spiritual Psychology Series: This is the first class in a planned series of Spiritual Psychology workshops Christina will teach. Additional classes include ‘Art, Music, and TranscenDANCE’ and ‘Altered States.’ Additional topics in future classes may include Shadow Work, Archetypes, and Dreamwork. Classes to be scheduled later in 2019 and 2020.
