Our programs focus on live interactive sessions, with practice and mentoring. Between sessions the work deepens with written discussions, articles, and videos.

All of our programs are based on the 4 Pillars of Authentic Communication.

  1. Here and Now Process Work
  • Stay in the here and now to deepen intimacy, trust and connection
  • Discover how to make interventions at the individual, interpersonal, and group level
  • Diagnose group process and name patterns

2. Nonviolent Communication

  • Share observations free of judgment, feelings free of evaluation, needs free of strategies and requests free of demands
  • Support folks to make group requests and group decisions
  • Create brave space for giving and receiving honest feedback

3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

  • Explore unconscious bias, unlearn white supremacy, and heal internalized oppression
  • Respond to microaggressions and repair harm
  • Support people from marginalized groups by shifting from ally to comrade

4. Internal Family Systems

  • Support individuals to speak for their parts rather than from their parts
  • Honor the positive intention of all parts of the psyche including protectors and exiles
  • Welcome all parts and expand the group’s Self energy
