    The tongue-in-cheek subheading for this course easily could have been:

    “Your ego is not just being a jerk.” 

    Sometimes in spiritual culture we can receive messages such as 1) the suffering we experience is pointless and/or meaningless, and 2) that by applying “awareness,” it will all someday go away. An initial awakening experience – or even several peak experiences – will not necessarily heal the defensive patterning that we have learned during our formative life experiences. This is because much of this defensive patterning is purposeful – it serves a function in meeting our needs or protecting us from pain, even though it is also burdensome. 

    An example of this defensive patterning with a purpose would be: “I need to be the strong one in my family, because that is how I will get love.” Of course, being strong and resilient are both positive qualities. With that said, if strength and resilience are the only modes we can operate in, and they are coupled with a fear that “if I’m not strong and resilient, I won’t receive love anymore,” then this can prove to be a source of suffering. It will lead to a condition of never being able to let our guard down and relax, even in contexts where letting our guard down is fully appropriate.

    This class utilizes three primary practices for addressing and healing trauma:

    1. Attunement. There are focusing techniques we can use to find the part of our mind-body system that is already well, and feeling into this as a safe and stable foundation prior to doing trauma release work.

    2. Release. When we feel that there is a constriction in our body that is due to some form of emotional suffering, the Realization Process release technique is one very simple tool we can use to feel into the constricted part – and gradually release it – with open awareness and compassionate focus.

    3. Inquiry. One of the key aspects of healing from trauma is becoming conscious of the purpose of a given constriction in our mind-body system. Common reasons for constricting are to protect ourselves, or to get our needs met in some way (love, autonomy, etc.). To uncover the purpose of a constriction or holding pattern – by bringing the unconscious beliefs, needs, and desires of our mind into conscious awareness – is a key factor in the healing process.

    In this class, you will practice and learn how to facilitate for yourself:

    1. Unveiling an element of suffering at its core, using an experiential, non-analytic framework
    2. Employing experiential attunement and release techniques
    3. Finding the unconscious positive value(s) of an item of personal suffering
    4. Integrating the unconscious basis of a trigger point with the conscious mind
    5. Healing a thread of suffering by feeling into (and resourcing into) fundamental consciousness


    1. Your presenting concern is of mental vs. organic origin (i.e. you are not looking to heal a brain injury, hypothyroidism, etc.)
    2. You have done psychological work in the past – whether experiential therapy, dynamic therapy, cognitive therapy, transformational or holistic forms of coaching, or other mind-body healing methods such as Realization Process, Sedona Method/Release Technique, Bioenergetics/Core energetics, EFT, Somatic Experiencing, etc.
    3. You agree to help co-facilitate this work with other participants by fostering an environment of acceptance and support, and agree to keep all discussions in class expressly confidential.

    1. The Realization Process release technique: How to practice this simple somatic release technique for releasing trauma from the core.
    2. Inquiring into the purpose of a holding pattern: Some key techniques for discovering unconscious patterns and making them fully conscious.
    3. Attunement: Finding innate qualities in the body such as love, power, and clarity, and using these as resources for trauma release work.
    4. Creating a supportive environment: Some suggestions will be given to group members as to how to foster a safe/supportive space for deep-level work.
