Addressing the Spiritual Experience in Personal Growth and Healing
Professional training with CE credits
In this highly material world, many of our clients are called to explore spirituality in their process of personal growth and healing.
For sure, there are many ways to explore the spiritual part of self, along with the larger spiritual realms, and many methods to access and integrate the spiritual experience.
In psychodrama, the method, theories, and techniques developed by Dr. J. L. Moreno, we can see that he built much of his theories from his philosophy about the relationship between God and humans, and frequently encouraged his patients to role reverse with God – as he often did. Moreno wrote regularly about our connection to the divine, which he termed as the Cosmos, and developed a specific kind of drama, known as axiodrama, to dramatize issues of ethics, cosmic relationships and values.
In Family Constellations, family therapist Bert Hellinger, a former Roman Catholic priest, originated the concept of the greater knowing field, which could support us in accessing new information beyond what is available from the rational mind. Family and Constellations sessions frequently explore themes of life, death and the unknown.
In this workshop, instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we will explore psychodramatic, action and arts-based routes to explore spiritual themes with individuals and groups.
