This study opportunity is offered for students who have successfully completed the Foundation Training and Practicum classes  in GPC.  The focus is on deepening understanding of what injures and what heals people. This class has been updated and redesigned from earlier versions.  Close attention will be paid to cultivating empathetic, secure presence in your role as guide, and facilitating your own deep healing work.  Peter Levine wrote in The Unspoken Voice, “Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside us in the absence of an empathetic witness.”;  “a state of unbearable aloneness” D. Fosha. 

In our study together, we will do a lot of practice, attending to the spiritual and interpersonal dimensions of the healing process.

The class is limited to eight students and will take place over five weekends and will include two online meetings in between.

The class will be held in Goshen, CT at Sara’s home.  At the first class we will choose meeting times for the online, Zoom sessions.

Cost is: $3600. Inclusive of training and room and room and board.
