PeakStates™ Therapist Training (7 days)This professional training is on peak states of consciousness and our techniques for acquiring them. It is designed for professionals (and qualified laypeople) who are interested in exploring the new frontier of peak states of consciousness (read comments from your colleagues who have taken the class).
This class provides an intensive exposure to the newest generation of both trauma and peak state techniques and, for many of you, personal acquisition of a variety of states. Rather than being just a workshop designed to satisfy curiosity, this is a training for professionals designed to teach participants some of the newest generation of models and techniques in the new field of peak states of consciousness. Theory is mixed with doing applications to acquire peak states for ourselves and each other.
However, taking this class does not authorize you to use these processes on clients yet - certification by the Institute is required for safety and other reasons, and you will be signing an agreement to this effect. The certification process is based on acquiring certified trauma emergency skills, acquiring competence through self-practice and practice with the other course participants or individuals who have previously completed the course, and other requirements. See the webpage on the Basic PeakStates certification process for more detail.
The class will be using several peak states processes, some our own, some developed by others. Everyone in the class will be expected to acquire the Silent Mind state. This state gives a wonderful silence in the mind and is critically important state for your own mental health when using merging techniques. Simple to do, it is ideal for clients. We'll practice the Inner Peace Process in class, which gives a continuous state where past emotional trauma doesn't normally get triggered. We'll also work with other important peak states that have minimal risk or adjustment problems for students.
The training is designed for several purposes: 1) acquiring some important peak states of consciousness; 2) be exposed to ways of inducing peak states into others; and 3) an introduction to more fundamental spiritual and shamanic states of consciousness.
As with anything, what you get depends on what you put into it and some luck. If you prepare ahead of time, your experience will be richer and more useful. You will be using trauma healing techniques which are applicable to any situation in your life, and can be done on yourself by yourself at home. We fully hope to see you in at least one peak state before you leave, but it will depend on how much trauma material is blocking your states. So there is no guarantee, but at a minimum you will leave with an understanding of what you need to continue working on when you get home.
Detailed Course Syllabus
Some of the unusual problems with acquiring peak states and ways to deal with them will be covered. How to deal with the Tribal Block to acquiring peak states will be used on everyone who attends, and is useful for clients in a variety of circumstances. This class uses the Basic PeakStates Therapist Manual (see the table of contents). This manual is available only in class - it contains material that could pose safety risks for people who had not taken the training.
