Continuing Education Classes
Narrative Health Coaching offers an integrated approach to clarifying and attaining desired client outcomes. Incorporating awareness of “story,” Narrative Health Coaching engages the whole person – body, mind, heart, soul and spirit – by increasing awareness, motivating change and encouraging healing.
In this class we explore and deepen our understanding of our stories about healing – both salutogenic (health-generating) and pathogenic (disease-centric) approaches. We work to uncover your present healing story to see how it supports or limits you.
We focus on discovering how writing and sharing narratives influences your experience of healing. We explore the impact that receiving feedback has on you and your narrative. We invite you to consider how your healing narrative increases resilience in a way that allows you to bounce forward rather than back. Finally, we guide you into using narrative healing in your health coaching practice.
Join Reggie Marra, poet, educator and Integral Master Coach™, in this eight-week exploration of poetry, healing and self.
In Living Poems, Writing Lives we will explore ourselves and poetry, with an emphasis on writing poetry as a healing narrative. No poetry writing experience is necessary. While we will engage the language of poetry, participants are welcome to write in their genre of choice. Over 8 sessions we will provide a basic introduction to/review of literary devices such as point of view, revision, image, comparison, diction, drama, the line, music, theme, texture and completion – as both tools for writing and vehicles for healing.
Specialty Classes in Healing
Archetypal Healing, Sacred Circle
The Healing Archetypes of Inspiring Homeopathy offers a unique opportunity for both individual and interpersonal healing. As a complete set of medicinal products, these seven remedies form the basis for shamanic journey in a group setting, facilitating direct 1st-person experience of the subtle but powerful nature of Inspiring Homeopathy.
Dr. Tinus Smits’ system is built upon seven universal archetypes reflecting the entire developmental lifespan of a human being. Rather than an individualized remedy read out of a book, the healer learns to identify the experience in him or herself and intuitively prescribe these potent archetypal forces. Healing begins with the self in this powerful system.
