The Upledger Institute’s Therapeutic Imagery and Dialogue 1


Stan Gerome


This workshop offers a dynamic adjunct to the work of CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and is designed to help you access the client’s “inner physician” by using the cranial rhythm, the soft touch of CST, and interweaving concepts from the work of Carl Jung, Fritz Perls, and Roberto Assagioli. With this method you are guided by imagery as it is presented by the client, rather than serving as the guide to imagery.


Course highlights:


• Explore techniques to bring your “nonconscious” into a more material existence


• Practice drawing your nonconscious images and dialoguing with them face to face


• Use sounding vowels and other internal vibrations, along with a ten-step protocol designed to enhance imagery and dialogue


• Discuss in detail Dr. Upledger’s ideas on imagery and dialogue and the psychosynthesis map


• Practice using the significance detector


Prerequisite: The Upledger Institute’s SomatoEmotional Release 1

From Isolation to Intimacy: A Relational Journey


Deborah Ullman & Carol Swanson


Many of our most difficult and stuck behaviors developed in a felt sense of isolation from our world. These include a sense that we should be able to pull ourselves together, ought to stop needing the approval of others, must initiate the changes we long for in our lives on our own. These are shameful feelings generated in a world that celebrates individual competitive accomplishments over cooperation and shared vulnerability. Shame and the defenses we devel- op for managing shameful feelings are among the most difficult of all our life experiences. We develop strategies, some of which are clearly protective postures, to defend ourselves from further wounding. On the other hand, shame can open us to finding our way to the wholeness and intimacy we long for.


The workshop leaders will cocreate a safe space for sharing journeys that can transform these longings we have for connecting into new expe- riences of support, balance, and belonging. We will explore specific ways to change the impact of our history on our current relationships.


The outcome of our time together will be tools, including a seven-step practice, for transforming shame and fear of new woundings, and the habitual, often self-destructive behaviors we’ve developed to protect or comfort ourselves, into a new sense of creative empowerment, accessible support, and belonging. This can infuse our rela- tionships with clients, colleagues, throughout our personal life, and as visionary leaders in the larger world. This work is especially important for psychotherapists and healing practitioners. It is also helpful for leaders, managers, and par- ents.

The Alchemical Art of Glass Fusing Dana Zed


Glass is a particularly magical medium for mak- ing art. Clear as water, strong like stone, trans- parent yet solid, glass can be invisible and yet act as a barrier. Being a synthesis of opposites, it is an ideal medium through which we can express our spiritual nature. During this workshop we will learn a variety of glass sculpture techniques and use these to give our ideas form. When we play with light and color and glass, the objects we make will change in satisfying and surpris- ing ways. Light through colored glass can create desirable illusions and we will take this inspira- tion into the land of symbol and beauty.
