We have all had the joy of accomplishing something almost effortlessly and automatically. These intuitive moments may seem unusual, and yet a large part of the brain is devoted to unconscious processing. In fact, your unconscious is a reservoir of potential. Recent neuroscience research shows that the brain has many intelligent, unconscious pathways. You can engage and use these unconscious pathways to help accomplish goals that might be elusive to your deliberate efforts. Meditative hypnosis provides ways to access that potential.
This workshop will give an intensive and powerful experience of meditative hypnosis to activate unconscious processing automatically and naturally. You will familiarize yourself with your own positive unconscious through exercises that develop an intuitive felt-sense. You will learn to use different forms of direct and indirect suggestion, experience the ideomotor mind-body link, and learn focusing, open-monitoring, and self-transcending meditation methods that tap into unconscious processing. You will experience ways to bypass conscious limits and overcome barriers as you learn how to work with your unconscious to overcome difficulties and discover wellbeing. Therapists will also gain techniques for attuning to their own unconscious and utilizing clients’ unconscious resources to facilitate lasting change. This workshop will inform, uplift, and transform.
