Personal Transformation Intensive


The Personal Transformation Intensive (PTI)
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. ~Carl Jung

The Personal Transformation Intensive (PTI) Most of use have emotional, physical and mental blocks that limit our joy, prevent us from knowing the truth about who we are, and interfere with manifesting our full potential. The PTI is a powerful experiential program that utilizes group process to release these blocks, explore our deeper selves and reclaim unacknowledged and hidden parts of ourselves.

The PTI integrates Gestalt, Humanistic, Transpersonal and Existential healing approaches using Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy, Integral Breath Therapy, Guided Visualization to deeper connections in relationship with self, with spirit and others.

Each of us, through heart-centered spiritual energies, has the ability to access internal resources of strength, wisdom and healing. Within these five weekends, we will enhance your internal resources and external support to explore, identify and eliminate emotional barriers that have previously blocked you from accessing the powerful resources of your Higher Inner-Self. Together we will explore the heart energies of self-compassion and self-acceptance, as well as the untapped powers of the unconscious mind towards growth.
