Clinical and Non-Clinical Tracks Available
For over 20 years, I have been supporting spiritual and religious practitioners, teachers/leaders, and communities to heal, grow, and thrive. Through the research and publication of four books on these subjects, over two decades of clinical experience as a psychotherapist, teaching extensively on these subjects, and integrating reader, student, and client feedback, there are deep and overarching themes and discernments that arise that are applicable to teachers and practitioners across a variety of religious, spiritual, and psychological traditions. This mentorship program is designed to teach, mentor, supervise, and “pass on the mantle” of this work to a small group of professionals who can become part of my personal referral network. Participants will emerge with knowledge, methods, protocols, and tools that can be integrated into their spiritual and religious communities, professional offerings, and personal practice in order to work skillfully and effectively in these areas.

The Clinical Track focuses on specific psychological diagnoses and treatment specific to mental health practitioners, and includes licensed or license-track psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, nurses, and other mental heath professionals. The Non-Clinical Track is open and relevant to an array of counselors, spiritual teachers/students, yoga teachers/therapists/studio owners, coaches, graduate students, and those who wish to use the material to support their spiritual growth, communities, and creativity. The groups meet both together as one group, and separately, throughout the program. Instructor will assign tracks after initial entry interview. Interviews begin in October, 2020.
