An Intensive Training in the R-CS Model & Method


Interweaving neurobiology, mindfulness and somatic, experiential psychology, the Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) Intensive Training provides participants with theories and methods immediately applicable in both their professional and personal lives.

In R-CS, therapy is not seen as an exploration and gradual resolution of old wounds, but as a celebration of innate resources and an opportunity to re-embody an already existing core sense of Self. When, in our development, this sense of Self was opposed, we accommodated the various obstacles and hurts we endured—and protected our ultimate integrityby fragmenting our consciousness into various trance-like self-states.

Long held as habitual neural networks in the brain and body, these fragmented states of consciousness perpetuate both our illusory sense of wounding, and the limiting behaviors that follow. R-CS seeks to identify these perceived selves, and to foster disidentification from them. R-CS does not focus on the content or historical origins of these states, but instead invites people to learn to shift immediately into a more expansive, already present, preferred state.

What You Will Learn     

• A comprehensive and practical map of the structures of the Self    
• An understanding of the neurological basis of identity and stuckness     
• A clinically supported orientation towards client wholeness and resources, as opposed to pathology   
• Techniques to pursue the Ideal Self and the evolution of Selfhood     
• Refined methods for inspiring commitment and empowerment      
• New, scientifically-based perspectives on the actual nature of client change   
• Facility with navigating issues of identification and disidentification     
• Immediately applicable skills for shifting fragmented client states   
• An appreciation of the diverse roles of the therapist     

For Whom    

Grounded in mindfulness and somatic awareness, R-CS is an experiential method that offers mental health and other healing practitioners of all sorts an opportunity to enhance the effectiveness of their present work.

"The R-CS work has continued to have a profound impact on both my practice and personal life... I'm happy to say I've been going the distance with what I've learned from you, relying on blending intuition with courage. It's a combination that keeps me at my own cutting edge."    
—Paul Woolery, MA, therapist, White Salmon, WA     

"I feel so blessed to have been part of that process towards deep change. [The work] that you and I did around Organic Self was so expansive for me... I feel that I am in a totally different place in my life than ever before... Each and every moment everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be... all I have to do is lower the mental chatter and listen for the next "right step" in my life. I honestly, for the first time in my life, feel grown up, truly an adult."        
— Andrea Kober, LMT, bodyworker, Victoria, BC
