Whether you are new to the Inquiries or you have been using them for some time, Deepening Courses are a great way to explore in more depth. Led by the Senior Facilitators, these courses enable participants to learn about and experience for themselves just how transformative this work can be.
Every Deepening Course consists of three or four group calls (a total of six hours in either three or four meetings). Meeting together as a group gives us the opportunity to learn, share and resonate with one another. A safe, supportive space is created in which we can begin to investigate and inquire.
Deepening Courses are often themed, as this gives us the chance to explore an aspect of our experience in a much deeper way. We offer courses on a wide range of topics, including anxiety, trauma, money, embodiment, food and eating issues, sex addiction, childhood, and being present. We also offer women-only courses.
As well as the group meetings, each participant receives a total of six individual sessions, four with the course leader(s) and two with the certified facilitators who are supporting the course.
Each course also has a private Facebook room in which participants can discuss and share.
If you have an idea on a course you would like us to offer, please get in touch. We can also design individual Deepening Courses.
The full cost of Deepening Courses, including the group calls and six individual sessions, is $425
Embodiment: Getting to know and love all of you
With Lisa Meuser. March 11, 25, April 8 2017
Embodiment is about being fully present with the “here and now” of life. Aligning with and attending to safety in the present moment is an important aspect of being able to journey through current day challenges as well traumatic/difficult experiences from our childhoods/past. In this Embodiment Deepening Course we will explore how to develop the ability and capacity to slow down so that we can gently and safely turn attention toward the present moment while simultaneously tuning into our experience of the present moment- whatever that might be. We will curiously explore the realm of aliveness in our experience- sensations, energies and feelings. We’ll also be inquiring into all the thoughts and images, taking a look at what seems true, and then experiencing what’s actually true. We’ll explore barriers to experiencing wholeness, and useful resources in developing kindness with our experiences- especially with those we tend to turn away from.
This course will utilize the Living Inquiries, the N.O.W. practice, natural rest, breathing techniques, and some gentle body movement to explore your various experiences- shame, trauma, depression, anxiety, compulsions, identities, body contractions, debilitating thoughts and/or memories and more. You will also become familiar with the nervous system, vigilance centers, the fight-flight-freeze responses, and learn about ways to support and be kind and loving with your self. Lastly, you will get to experience the different inquiries first hand, and be able to practice skills for learning how to self-inquire.
I will be facilitating and guiding you in practices which will start to re-wire your nervous system and limbic system in ways that are profound.
You will have recordings so that you can practice on your own between class dates, which will help replace old habitual behaviors with new useful behaviors. Also included in the course will be multiple natural rest and guided rest audios and videos, and a private Facebook group for participants to share and receive support. All of this will set the stage for deeper self-intimacy and knowing, with compassion and love.
