Gaining Traction-2018

Posted by on Jul 26, 2016 in events, workshops | Comments Off on Gaining Traction-2018

GAINING TRACTION A workshop for people who have recently completed an addiction treatment program. Note: This is not a clinical program, nor is it to be substituted for an intensive outpatient program. This 4-day workshop is designed specifically for people who have recently completed an addiction treatment program for either substance addictions (alcohol/drugs) or process addictions (gambling, food addiction, sex addiction, etc.). In this 4-day workshop, we help clients identify the core emotional addictions (to security, sensation, power-control and suffering) inherited through familial and cultural imprints that make us vulnerable to relapse into substance and/or process addictions. We pay particular attention to the challenges presented in the early months of recovery from dependencies and provide tools (both left brain and right brain tools; cognitive as well as intuitive) to sustain the insights and progress gained during treatment programs. We guide clients through exercises that develop ease in intervening with ruminations, triggers, and the addiction interaction disorder by which one compulsive behavior is replaced with another. Through this workshop, clients early in recovery from substance and/or process addictions gain traction in their recovery by deepening their emotional awareness and acquiring tools to sustain emotional resilience and sobriety. Workshop Dates for 2018: January 24-27 February 28- March 3 April 25-28 May 23-26 June 27-30 July 25-28 August 22-25 September 19-22 October 24-27 November 14-17 December 12-15 Sign up now! –> caroline@cfhmc.com Workshop Fee: $3,000.00 A non-refundable deposit of $300.00 is required.

Inner Journey 1 – 2019

Posted by on Apr 5, 2015 in events, workshops | Comments Off on Inner Journey 1 – 2019

Inner Journey 1 is the Center’s foundational workshop. In this 4-day workshop clients uncover and begin to transform negative imprints, the deep-seated self-defeating beliefs that shape our perceptions and our emotional experiences of reality. Attached to negative imprints are core emotional addictions to security, power-control, sensation and suffering. These emotional addictions both trigger and are fueled by negative imprints, and in turn keep us in reactive states until we identify them, and through the practiced application of attention and intention, release their energy. The workshop leads clients through self-reflective work including presentations, individual coaching, group discussion and sharing, guided writing exercises, and practices in heart-focused attention and breath work. The educational component aligns with latest findings in neuroscience. Recent neuroscience breakthroughs are helping us understand how our imprints affect our ability to know ourselves deeply and transform our lives. Encoded in our brain’s memory pathways, the imprints of our life experiences impact our perceptions, our thinking, our feeling and doing. These experiences shape and our shaped by our biology. They can also be reshaped by our deliberate intent, thus changing neural pathways and future experiences. “From an interpersonal neurobiology perspective, attention is the ‘scalpel’ that helps remold neural pathways: attention is to a clinician or teacher what a scalpel is to a surgeon” (Siegel, 2012, p.32). Group Workshop Dates: 2019 January 16-19, 2019 February 6-9, 2019 March 27-30, 2019 April 10-13, 2019 May 8-11, 2019 June 12-15, 2019 July 17-20, 2019 August 7-10, 2019 September 11-14, 2019 October 9-12, 2019 November 13-16, 2019 December 11-14, 2019 Private Individual Workshops also available–Call to schedule Sign up now! –> caroline@cfhmc.com   Group Fee: $2,295.00  / Private Individual Workshop Fee: $3,000.00 A non-refundable deposit is required: $200.00 for group workshop; $300.00 for private. Balances of $2095.00 (group) and of $2,700.00 (private) are due 2 weeks before group workshop begins.
