Going Deeper Together: 9-Week Online Course

"Going Deeper Together really lives up to its name. This course is a unique, engaging and well thought out experience. 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 (former GDT course participant)

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.

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

  • Part Work / Internal Family Systems

  • Somatic Experiencing

  • Breathwork (I've developed and NVC-Based Breathwork Process that I'm very excited about)

  • Hakomi

  • Plant Medicine Ceremonies

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

  • Safety/trust/choice

  • Resonance

  • Resourcing

  • Regulation

  • Titration 

  • Pendualtion

  • The Window of Tolerance

  • The Sympathetic and Parasympathetic branches of the Autonomic Nervous System

  • The Vagus Nerve

  • Implicit Memories and Trauma

"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 in my life. 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”.

I am offering this course partly through a relational economy. Relational economy (very similar to gift economy) is an economy in which we're not "just doing business;" we're partaking in a human to human exchange. Find more on my version of a relational economy here.

"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 (past course participant)
