About the Class

This program will be taught within a “retreat” environment. Literature about transpersonal psychology will be presented, along with transpersonal research studies that explore treatment outcomes of EMDR as a transpersonal therapy, as well as the impact of a transpersonal approach to psychotherapy.
An authentic Hawaiian priestess will take us through a meditation and ceremony at powerful sacred sites on the Island. The program includes participation in an evening gathering of drumming, meditation, and ceremony, in accordance with the policy and permission of the hosting facility.
