Eric is not only teaching me more advanced ways to work with and become very intimate with my emotional landscape, but I’m also getting solid practice on a weekly basis so I can use what I’m learning." ~ Rob

This course is for you if you want to go deeper with your healing work, if you want to add more tools to your empathy or counseling practice, or if you want to have more online community for deeper healing work. I will draw from the training I've done in various therapeutic modalities, and all of it will be held within an NVC needs-based consciousness. This course is not for you if you are looking for the NVC basics or for NVC dialogue practice. 

Except for the first call, which will be used for introductions, course parameters, and guided processes each call will be 2 hours long and will consist of

  • an opening segment in which I explain or guide participants through different key principles of therapeutic healing work and of various therapeutic approaches to healing;

  • a demonstration with a participant of the various therapeutic processes I draw from in my counseling practice (volunteering for demos is not required);

  • a review of the demonstration and content of the class with Q&A.

  • You will also have one partner call per week (between class calls) to practice the tools we'll cover in the course.

Some of the therapeutic theories or modalities that we will explore or touch on in this course include

  • NVC-Based Depth Empathy

  • Somatic Empathy

  • Attachment Theory

  • Interpersonal Neurobiology

  • Inner Parts Work / Internal Family Systems

  • Somatic Experiencing

  • Hakomi

  • Plant Medicine Ceremonies

Some of the therapeutic/healing principles and concepts that I'll outline include

  • Safety/trust/choice

  • Resonance

  • Resourcing

  • Regulation

  • Titration 

  • Pendulation

  • The Window of Tolerance

  • The Vagus Nerve

  • Implicit Memories and Trauma

All of the above will be explored as experientially as possible on the course calls and the partner calls. There is no required reading for this course, but I will suggest various books, talks, and other resources for participants to explore should they wish to find more information.

"Eric first described the Going Deeper course as a healing experiment. For me, it has been one of the best experiments I have ever tried. Through practical and experiential learning, our group of 8 has witnessed not only personal healing, but collective healing as well. Thank you very much Eric for creating this experiment”. ~ Laura

"I am deeply grateful for the tools and knowledge Eric is sharing in Going Deeper Together. I am learning to support deeper healing in myself and in my relationships with others. I love the sense of community that is building with the other participants as we practice the material and processes on our between-class partner calls. This course is a game-changer for me. It offers a powerful, common-sense approach to healing and growth. Thank you Eric for your support, patience, and clarity." ~ Dana
 

In order to fit into our families and into modern society, and in order to survive our traumas and overwhelming experiences, we had to cut off from our bodies to varying degrees and live more in our minds. Living more in our minds makes it very difficult to pay attention to and understand the information our bodies try to tell us, important information about how safe and connected we feel, about our instincts and intuition, about our personal boundaries and desires, and about our physical, emotional and spiritual health. 

Coming back to the body is often a challenging journey as it requires that we go against the unconscious survival strategies we used to get through our childhood. The inner healing work that allows us to return to and deepen into the body needs specific awareness, tools, and support. With all of the above in mind, I designed this 9-Week Going Deeper Together course.
