Care and the Shadow

Aims:

Debbie Hegarty and Matthew Henson invite you to join them for an interactive and experiential exploration of care and its shadow; specifically, the relationship between care for others and poor or non-existent self-care; a phenomenon that is both well-known and often ignored within the psychotherapy and counselling professions.

The workshop, which provides 21 certified CPD hours, is facilitated by two highly experienced, IAHIP registered, psychotherapists. They are also qualified psychotherapy trainers who work well together, bringing a balance of both female and male perspectives and energies to the group.

The event is for practising psychotherapists, counsellors and supervisors. From a humanistic integrative base, we will draw on a range of therapeutic traditions and methods, in solo reflection, pairs, small groups and the whole group, to attend to whatever emerges around this important theme. We will also create opportunities to relax, recharge and have fun.

Practicalities:

We will gather together at the Emmaus Retreat Centre, Dublin (www.emmauscentre.ie) on the morning of Friday 22 September 2017 and work through to Sunday afternoon.

Full price, including all meals and accommodation: €580

Early Bird (book by 4 August 2017): €530

‘The Hero’s Journey’

A Call to Adventure – “The Hero’s Journey” Residential Workshop

A Seven-Day Residential Workshop Presented by The Fool’s Dance Gestalt Company – Paul Rebillot School in Ireland

The ‘Slí an Chroí’ Centre, Kiltegan, Co. Wicklow, July 1st to July 7th, 2017.

THE HERO’S JOURNEY: Do you have a sense that there could be more to life than you are living? Do you experience an inner yearning for fulfilment? Paul Rebillot’s ‘Hero’s Journey’ workshop could help you come into contact with your own internal call for transformation. The workshop – an exciting group structure combining Gestalt process and groupwork with elements of myth, theatre, ritual, music, art and movement – is a modern-day rite of passage.

Significant change challenges us to move from one level of being to another, to step into the unknown. Traditional societies used Rites of Passage – overseen by a ritual master or shaman – to ceremonialise, celebrate and guide members of their community on their journey through important life stages such as birth, puberty, adulthood, marriage, eldership and death. Importantly, these rituals also taught the initiates that change was part of the normal order of things and showed them ways of dealing with it.

Responding to what he saw as our society’s urgent need for help in facing change, Paul Rebillot drew on his professional skills as actor, director, musician and psychotherapist – and on his personal experience of spiritual and psychological crisis – to develop a rite of passage for our own times, a blueprint – based on the universal monomyth of the Hero’s Journey – for dealing with change and transformation.

Entering the Hero’s Journey process we come to discover the Hero within us and – having heard a Call to Adventure – we set off with her or him on a …read more

Galway Psychotherapy and Consulting Sexuality, the Body, and Body Image

Dublin

Wednesday to Friday, 28th to 30th June, 2017

Marine Hotel, Sutton Cross, Dublin

Facilitated by Mike O’Halloran and Evelyn P. Gilmore

This workshop provides an opportunity for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, coaches, educators, health care professionals and allied professions to enhance their awareness of their own sexuality, to build greater awareness of their bodies, and to explore various aspects of their body image in a new way. During the workshop, as participants explore these issues and gain greater awareness themselves, it will provide them with new opportunities and greater insight when working with their clients on issues around sexuality, the body, and body image.

Sexuality, the Body, and Body Image can provide great pleasure, excitement, aliveness and choice in one’s life. However, often individuals struggle to cope with issues around their sexuality, with shame and guilt around their bodies, with feelings of powerlessness around life choices and decisions related to sexuality and the body, and with a distorted body image. This three-day workshop on Sexuality, the Body, and Body Image will explore both aspects of the above.

During the three days, participants will be provided with an opportunity to explore the following:

  • Exploring Sexuality and the Body
  • Personal, Familial, and Societal Influences on our Sexuality
  • Freedom and Choice Around Sexuality
  • Sexuality and Fear
  • Working with the Body
  • Tuning in and Trusting the Body in a New Way
  • Exploring the Individual’s Body Image
  • Self-Image, Body-Image and Dress
  • Aliveness, Excitement, Pleasure and the Body
  • Shame and Guilt around the Body and Sexuality
  • Guilt-free and pleasurable experiences

Style of the Workshop

The learning over the three days is highly experiential with a focus on participants’ process and experience. We will use Gestalt work, Biodynamic work, attention to Dreams, and Small and Large Group Process. The work will include Music, Movement, Dance, Drawing, and Guided Visualisation to bring into the present …read more

SOUL SEMINARS: The Stormy Search for the Self

WHEN; Thursday 29th June
Where: The Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2
Dear friends,

The next Soul Seminars will be hosted by our own Martin Duffy on the topic of ‘The Stormy Search for the Self’ at the new location of The Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2.

About the Night

The Stormy Search for the Self

From Spiritual Emergence to Healing and Re-birth

Many people today are experiencing a stormy search for themselves, characterised by feelings of loneliness and isolation, fear and anxiety, depression and addictions and a search for purpose and meaning in their lives. Soul Loss is endemic on a personal and collective cultural level.
People involved in personal transformation are experiencing spiritual emergencies/crisis when the process of growth and change become chaotic and overwhelming. Individuals experiencing such episodes may feel that their sense of identity is breaking down, that their old values no longer hold true, and that the very ground beneath their personal realities is radically shifting. In many cases, new realms of spiritual experience may enter their lives suddenly and dramatically, resulting in fear and confusion. They may have fear and anxiety, or have difficulty coping with their daily lives, jobs and relationships.
Unfortunately, much of modern psychiatry has failed to distinguish these episodes of spiritual emergencies from mental illness.
However there is another perspective which views such crises as transformative breakthroughs rather than breakdowns that can hold tremendous potential for physical and emotional healing. When understood and treated in a supportive manner, spiritual emergencies can become gateways to higher levels of functioning and new ways of being.
At this seminar we will explore ways to identify and deal with spiritual emergence and emergencies.

The Mysterious Connexion: Projective Identification and Enactment in Process Work

A Two-Day Workshop with Dr. Heward Wilkinson

When: 1-2 July, 2017

Where: The Metropole Hotel, MacCurtain Street, Cork

Cost: €180.00. Tea and coffee included.

CPD Hours: 11 – certificate awarded on conclusion.

Dr. Heward Wilkinson has lectured extensively on Projective Identification and Enactment, developing a rich and thoroughly considered approach to these topics, from which he has prepared a special two-day experiential workshop for Symposion. The Mysterious Connexion promises to be a memorable experience from which practitioners will draw in their work for years to come.

Projective Identification – the other side of its mirror is Counter-Transference! – is a mode of communication, found far beyond process work in therapy. It is alive and well in vast human communication processes, families, groups, and collective situations. Therapy process work is a uniquely powerful mode by which to tap into it. It is not merely the raw reactiveness of either therapist or client, but more, – profound interactive communication.

And, as, in Eliot’s phrase, the ‘tentacular roots, reaching down to the deepest terrors and desires’ – and shames – of its underneath reachings, are expressed in process and in replications, we grasp that, – not merely various forms of ‘acting-out’ or ‘acting-in’—but all therapy process modes, mentalised and/or embodied, are a seamless shot silk tapestry of Enactment. Enactment process actually defines and underpins the therapy processes of the narrative-relational therapies. Enactment is not simply regressive or defensive, but the all-pervasive medium of the work, rising to poetic epiphany. In and upon that rich medium, Projective Identifications play out subtly at all the levels – above, below, and in-between.

Both Projective Identification and Enactment are commonly oversimplified, even shrivelled down to reductive guises. But, they are both realities, – and powerful metaphors amongst many metaphors. We’ll seek to explore them together, in this workshop, in all their richness …read more
