Entering the Castle: A Journey into Mysticism and Contemplative Practice

8:30 am08:30

Entering the Castle: A Journey into Mysticism and Contemplative Practice

  • Gestalt Institute of Cleveland

Mystics are the discoverers and keepers of esoteric knowledge—living wisdom gained through various forms of contemplative practice. Mystics from all religious traditions, from ancient times through present day, tell a remarkably similar and inspiring story of human potential. We are much more than we seem! Search beyond what common sense or reason allows, dip below the surface of everyday seductions and distractions, and discover that part of ourselves that can access the Divine and Eternal. Journey inward to lift the veils of illusion that hide the Truth of our being, to dissolve our perception of false self and separation and to open our sense of connection to each other and to a Divine force.

Continuing Education (CE): 6.5 Contact Hours

Tuition: $130.00 (per workshop) with lunch
$104.00 (per workshop) without lunch

Faculty:
Linda Miller, PhD, GPCC™, PCC

“Entering the Castle” takes inspiration from the life and writings of Spanish mystic and Roman Catholic Saint, Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582). According to one admiring critic, her seminal work, Interior Castle, "lays bare…the most impenetrable secrets of true wisdom in what we call mystical theology.”  To enter the first room of the Castle, one must cultivate brutally honest self-awareness and reflection: a practice very familiar to our Gestalt community. How far does self-awareness take us along the spiritual path? What are the pitfalls we might encounter? What other characteristics must we develop to progress farther? Come join a day of contemplation and see what answers arise from our collectively focused and quiet stillness.

In this series of workshops, we draw inspiration from Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu mystics to deepen our own spiritual practice and to build a supportive and ongoing spiritual community. Each workshop is a day-long retreat designed to introduce and support a contemplative practice. 

Learning Objectives
Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Cultivate self-awareness by reflecting on one’s personal spiritual journey;
  • Practice two techniques for deepening a meditation practice;
  • Develop a richer, personal presence by practicing intuitive expression; and
  • Identify ways to support an ongoing contemplative practice.

In this increasingly complex and sometime chaotic world, interpersonal relationships have never been more important—or more complicated! Relating effectively with others can advance your professional career and enrich your personal life. In this fast-paced, multitasking world, the ability to relate authentically is easily compromised. It is often easier to withdraw into isolation and lose sight of our need to contribute to the creation of stimulating and supportive relationships and communities. Relating well is based upon using our capacities to be self-aware, curious and open to another's experience and viewpoint, as well as having the skills to communicate effectively in order to influence with integrity.

"Life Changing"
These 3 days were life changing for me ..
In addition to other powerful experiences from the weekend, this workshop helped me to:
Provide a theoretical framework for a present-centered and empowering approach to working with clients/systems from a wide variety of backgrounds
Bring clarity and insight into the ways that I related with my clients, professional colleagues, friends, families and partners
Get me energized and passionate about life in an unexpected way with resources that I never knew I had.
--Heather Kamper

We invite you to participate in a Gestalt Experience Workshop (GEW) and learn how a Gestalt approach can help you to build more productive and satisfying personal and professional relationships. This workshop focuses on increasing your self-awareness and supporting your learning through direct, present experience and respectful exchange with others. Our skilled faculty facilitators create a space in which to explore, observe, practice and discuss interpersonal interactions. In addition, core elements of Gestalt methods are explained to help you to integrate your learning.

This is a potentially transformative weekend that offers an opportunity to take some of the mystery out of creating and sustaining more satisfying professional and interpersonal relationships.

This workshop satisfies the Introductory Gestalt Workshop prerequisite for the Gestalt Training Program (GTP) and may contribute to acceptance in other GIC training programs.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Experience interactive processes, based on Gestalt theory that are rooted in the present moment;
  • Experiment with elements of embodied presence, such as: using the breath, body posture and movement;
  • Explore the ways your behavior affects others;
  • Describe how interpersonal interactions with others affects you;
  • Recognize the unintended consequences interpersonal interactions may have;
  • Observe the process of dialogue from a Gestalt perspective;
  • Practice using Gestalt methods to make meaningful contact with others;
  • Summarize 3 basic Gestalt principles or methods that may be applied in your work; and
  • Identify one or two new ideas or behaviors you will take away from this workshop.

Addiction and Shame/Body: Healing the Feeling of Unworthiness in Recovery

  • Gestalt Institute of Cleveland

Friday, 9:30am-6:00pm
Saturday, 9:30am-6:00pm

Our bodies are the secret home of feelings and shame and unworthiness. Within our body self we can carry messages of what is "wrong" with us in our tissue. Addicts use substances to manage these feelings of shame and yet the process of addiction paradoxically creates more shame. Eventually their own body becomes a reminder of what they want to avoid. This whole cycle increasingly separates them from contact with their own body and others. For addicts in recovery, the healing of shame begins with sensing their body in the context of a relational field.

Continuing Education (CE): 13 contact hours

  • Review how shame develops in addicts through direct experience, and others' responses to them;
  • Explore how/where addicts may carry and hold shame in their bodies;
  • Describe how shame can be healed for addicts through a relational process;
  • Identify three interventions in decreasing shame in addicts;
  • Practice using these interventions;
  • Experience sensing the body in the context of a relational field;
  • Identify ongoing supports to enable addicts to become shame resilient; and

Gestalt Experience Workshop: An Introduction to Gestalt

Friday, 1:00pm-7:30pm
Saturday, 9:00am-6:00pm
Sunday, 9:00am-1:00pm

In this increasingly complex and sometime chaotic world, interpersonal relationships have never been more important—or more complicated! Relating effectively with others can advance your professional career and enrich your personal life. In this fast-paced, multitasking world, the ability to relate authentically is easily compromised. It is often easier to withdraw into isolation and lose sight of our need to contribute to the creation of stimulating and supportive relationships and communities. Relating well is based upon using our capacities to be self-aware, curious and open to another's experience and viewpoint, as well as having the skills to communicate effectively in order to influence with integrity.

"Life Changing"
These 3 days were life changing for me ..
In addition to other powerful experiences from the weekend, this workshop helped me to:
Provide a theoretical framework for a present-centered and empowering approach to working with clients/systems from a wide variety of backgrounds
Bring clarity and insight into the ways that I related with my clients, professional colleagues, friends, families and partners
Get me energized and passionate about life in an unexpected way with resources that I never knew I had
--Heather Kamper

We invite you to participate in a Gestalt Experience Workshop (GEW) and learn how a Gestalt approach can help you to build more productive and satisfying personal and professional relationships. This workshop focuses on increasing your self-awareness and supporting your learning through direct, present experience and respectful exchange with others. Our skilled faculty facilitators create a space in which to explore, observe, practice and discuss interpersonal interactions. In addition, core elements of Gestalt methods are explained to help you to integrate your learning.

This is a potentially transformative weekend that offers an opportunity to take some of the mystery out of creating and sustaining more satisfying professional and interpersonal relationships.

This workshop satisfies the Introductory Gestalt Workshop prerequisite for the Gestalt Training Program (GTP) and may contribute to acceptance in other GIC training programs.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Experience interactive processes, based on Gestalt theory that are rooted in the present moment;
  • Experiment with elements of embodied presence, such as: using the breath, body posture and movement;
  • Explore the ways your behavior affects others;
  • Describe how interpersonal interactions with others affects you;
  • Recognize the unintended consequences interpersonal interactions may have;
  • Observe the process of dialogue from a Gestalt perspective;
  • Practice using Gestalt methods to make meaningful contact with others;
  • Summarize 3 basic Gestalt principles or methods that may be applied in your work; and
  • Identify one or two new ideas or behaviors you will take away from this workshop.

Sunday, 9:00am-6:00pm
Monday, 9:00am-6:00pm
Tuesday, 9:00am-6:00pm

Prerequisite: Completion of the Coach Certification Program

Our coaching work with clients becomes more powerful when we attend to our own embodiment and that of our clients. If you've attended the Gestalt Coaching Certification Program, or are a coach having taken Introduction to Physical Process, and want to take your coaching skills to a deeper level - this workshop is for you!

We operate with a core belief that our bodies carry our life experiences, in our musculature, our stance and posture. Over time, we take on a physical shape that moves beyond habit, and into a fixed structure - a Character Structure. In this very experiential workshop, you will be exposed to five Character Structures, including the shape/energy/movement of each Structure, typical re-occurring life-themes, and ways to tap into the strengths and work with the dilemmas of people having that Structure.

"The character of the individual as it is manifested in his typical pattern of behaviour is also portrayed on the somatic level by the form and movement of the body" ~A. Lowen

Relevance of this material to ICF core competencies and Gestalt Stance is reinforced as we incorporate presence, using self as an instrument, considering the person and their environment, experimenting, and attending to the emergent present.

Outcomes
For three full days, participants will explore coaching through the lens of Character Structure, including:

  • Noticing patterns for using one's own physical process while coaching;
  • Learning about, trying on and experimenting with five Character Structures as a lens to perceive a client's embodied expression;
  • Experimenting with expanding the client's awareness and choices for action through asking powerful questions, facilitating experiments, and co-creating embodied practices for ongoing learning;
  • Understanding the ethical standards and contracting guidelines for coaching with physical process; and
  • Relating coaching with physical process skills to International Coach Federation (ICF) core competencies #4 Coaching Presence, #5 Active Listening, #8 Creating Awareness, #9 Designing Actions.

Deconstructing Shame: A Gestalt Approach to Shame

Deconstructing Shame: A Gestalt Approach to Shame

  • Gestalt Institute of Cleveland

Shame is a powerful experience which lives inside the mind and body of every individual and is especially present those who have experienced trauma.  Shame is often at the seat of anger, perfectionism, avoidance of intimacy and somatic suffering.  

As we live and work in a world where trauma is becoming increasingly more prevalent and acknowledged, the need to explore the role of shame and trauma becomes more salient. Our culture is driven by fear and lack of connection, resulting in shame becoming further embedded in the individual and collective narrative of human beings.  

As practitioners, when our own shame stories are often left unexplored and outside of our own awareness, we become less available in our ability to be in relational contact with our clients.  A lack of availability for contact in the therapeutic relationship is problematic in that shame creates an intrinsic sense of being different from our clients and is best addressed with the context of relationship.  Additionally, this phenomenon results in a greater chance for countertransference to develop, as well as the risk of reactivating our client’s trauma responses within the therapeutic relationship. 

Through the combination of didactic and experiential activities, we will explore our unexamined shame narratives and the potential for healing shame within a relational dynamic.  Participants can expect to develop a deeper understanding of embodiment of shame, skills for resourcing and grounding, and empowerment of healing by authoring narratives, which are grounded in connection. 

This workshop is open to all levels of mental health professionals. Others are welcome.

  • Explore the embodiment of shame and the research related to new developments in neuroscience/somatic healing; and
  • Practice grounding skills (i.e. use of breath/presence) to support one’s self and clients in processing shame.

Gestalt Marathon Group

  • Gestalt Institute of Cleveland

This group experience engages participants in holistic, present-centered and process-oriented interactions by attending to both ‘What is being said’ and ‘What’s not being said.’ By attending to the ‘Here and Now,’ ‘I – Thou,’ and ‘What and How,’ awareness and contact is attended to in a manner that allows participants to experience authenticity and integrity in their personal and professional living. Past marathon group participants have reported fresh insights, creative adjustments, and life-changing awareness, thus experiencing a new sense of self, expanded potential for novel behavior and alternative ways of relating to others. Participation in this workshop fulfills 15 hours Continuing Education (CEUs) in interpersonal processes, group dynamics and organizational applications. Satisfactory participation in this workshop meets the prerequisite Gestalt group experience for applicants to the post-graduate "GTP" programs. While we will be together as a group most of the day, there will be opportunities for sub-grouping and alone time. Participants are asked to bring a sack lunch and small snacks, e.g., fruit, nuts, etc. that may be shared. We will be "ordering out" for dinner, the cost of which is to be borne by participants.

This workshop is designed for all levels of mental health professionals.  Others are welcome.

In urban centers, where we have access to more diversity than our rural counterparts, we struggle to embrace the unique contributions we could bring to each other. Those of us who get stuck feeling separate or "on the fringe" are 45% more likely than others to die an early death. Isolation is tightly correlated to an array of poor health outcomes. We need a systemic intervention NOW. Our well-being depends on promoting a culture of re-connection.

Our efforts to generate solidarity and collaboration often falter. In addition to the unprecedented scale and complexity of problems we face, from social erosion to gaping inequality, and climate collapse. We also struggle to trust and rely on one another so we can work together to find the right solutions. We need to create change, however, in this culture our most popular stories of achievement glorify competition and heroism. Drawing on values of "disconnection" derails our collective efforts, breaks apart our relationships, and fractures our organizations and movements.

The Culture of Radical Engagement training supports participants to lead a shift in culture, an essential and often elusive arena of social transformation. Bringing together community organizers, scholars, educators, students, caregivers, and healers from diverse fields, we work toward strategies that ensure we can depend on one another, without shying away from the challenges of diversity, power, and trauma. We explore how to embody values of support, empathy, interdependency, inclusion, and shared leadership.

The framework for this 3-day training is based on an integration of social capital research, social neuroscience, relational theory, community organizing, and somatic education. It presents a nuanced approach to issues of identity, intersectionality, and privilege using an embodied, relational practice of narrative and movement. Modules in this training include: Stories of Separation, Stories of Connection, Ecology and Diversity, Support for Conflict Resolution, and more.

 LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Participants completing this workshop will be able to:

1) Create a values-driven, strength-based narrative of personal leadership (Stories of Connection);
2) Link that story to a larger collective narrative that identifies share community values;
3) Use these stories as engagement tools to inspire others to join together and take action;
4) Engage in a Resonance Practice, which structures group activities focusing on mutual attunement and collective empathy to deepen bonds and build new ones;
5) Teach Stories of Connection and Resonance Practice to others in their home communities and/or organizations.

Get Empathy Training

PREREQUISITE: Culture of Radical Engagement TTT: must be attended first. 

A youth project developed by The Relational Center, Get Empathy is a training program that promotes resilience and leadership in young people. The curriculum targets teachers, guidance counselors, school administrators, mentors and parents. Benefits include increases in social emotional learning, social resilience and creative expression. The program builds skills for preventing isolation, bullying, violence, low self-esteem and loneliness. The design stimulates protective factors for resilience through a values-focused storytelling strategy and includes a protocol for compassionate listening.
 
As a school-based social resilience program, Get Empathy teams up with students who are already showing leadership tendencies. Youth are mobilized to engage their peers in creating conditions consistent with the original aims of public education: to develop an informed citizenry. Youth learn the legacy they have inherited; the responsibility required for steering a purposeful direction for the human community into the future; and a way to identify what their contribution will be to civic life as they move toward adulthood. To support these outcomes, participants may choose to host ongoing peer-groups in which students connect at regular intervals to share stories, address meaningful challenges, share artistic, creative expression and learn how to be leaders in their worlds.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Participants completing this workshop will be able to:

1) Help schools and youth-serving organizations to launch resilience-focused peer groups and leadership campaigns;
2) Teach Stories of Connection and Resonance Practice to teachers and youth-serving professionals;
3) Train teachers and youth-serving professionals to teach young people to use the same tools.

Sunday, 9:00am-1:00pm

In this increasingly complex and sometime chaotic world, interpersonal relationships have never been more important—or more complicated! Relating effectively with others can advance your professional career and enrich your personal life. In this fast-paced, multitasking world, the ability to relate authentically is easily compromised. It is often easier to withdraw into isolation and lose sight of our need to contribute to the creation of stimulating and supportive relationships and communities. Relating well is based upon using our capacities to be self-aware, curious and open to another's experience and viewpoint, as well as having the skills to communicate effectively in order to influence with integrity.
