Preparing to Awaken: September 2018


Preparing to Awaken

 – 4 Sundays in September 2018

 

I have to go to the woods, and I have to meet the wolf, or else my life will never begin.”  Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Preparing to Awaken is a training course offering the pure delivery of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) within a feminine context. It interweaves traditional ACT philosophy, metaphor and experiential exercises with inquiry, deep listening, and women’s circle. This way of approaching ACT leverages the strength of feminine process to deepen your subjective understanding of the material — thereby preparing the way for awakening.

Topics to be covered in this course include:

  • Waking up from the Myth of Control
  • Opening to the Stuff We’ve Been Avoiding
  • Gaining a Felt-Sense of Willingness
  • Packing Our Picnic Baskets… and Heading Into the Woods

What next?  The long-term vision is an inspired community of women supporting one another’s self-discovery and transformation through the ongoing, advanced-level Cultivating Wisdom Circle.

What if I miss a session?  I recommend enrolling for this course only if you can attend all sessions. If you miss one, then please listen to its audio recording prior to the next session. (The material builds upon itself.)
