Program Overview

Our Professional and Self-Mastery training programs are designed to support you in:  

  • Applying the PAUSE Model™ in a personal and professional setting.  PAUSE is an acronym that defines five essential Resource States that chart a Path to Wholeness through deeper levels of embodiment, personal awareness, physiological balance, guidance, and fulfillment.
  • Exploring Body Centered Psychotherapy: To experience being fully present and enhance the body’s full vitality and capacity to renew, energize, and heal
  • Understanding Character Defense Systems: To recognize how our bodies hold powerful directions to defining transformative work
  • Understanding the Enneagram: To better understand ourselves, while increasing our ability to communicate with others and understand their world view
  • Utilizing Trauma Resolution Processes: To unwind the past, and release the future.
  • Incorporating powerful universal Spiritual Principles and Resources: There are powerful principles, practices, and resources found at the core of nearly all major spiritual systems, including Christianity, Yoga, Buddhism, and A Course in Miracles.  Using these resource states provides a path to release, peace, and empowerment.
  • Utilizing Neuro Linguistic Psychology (NLP):  To set and accomplish your goals, and incorporate powerful communication and transformational tools into your daily life
  • Mastering Self-Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy:  To clear limiting images and beliefs

The Five Resource States of PAUSE:

A-Aware Witness
U-Unified Self
E-Evoke Essence

P-Present uncovers how we resist the natural flow of health and well-being in our bodies.

  • Based on a practical application of Character Analysis, inspired by the works of psychiatrists Wilhelm Reich, John Pierrakos, and Alexander Lowen.

A-Aware Witness identifies and addresses the personality patterns contributing to most of our challenges and frustrations.

  • The many authors of the Enneagram and Mindfulness Training influence our teaching of the Aware Witness. 

U-Unified Self  supports us in integrating the various apparently separated aspects of ourselves to deeply increase our resources in the present, creating a more empowered and expansive state of existence.

  • Based on the research of leaders in the field of neuroscience and trauma resolution, a unified, coherent sense of self generates feelings of confidence, self-esteem, and productivity.

S-Surrender invites us to confront unconscious patterns of resistance and projection that obscure the underlying lessons life offers us in every moment.

  • Based on the timeless wisdom of A Course in Miracles and other Spiritual Principles, resistance and projection are transformed into a bridge creating an abiding connection to our true nature.  The lessons our personal curriculum teaches us lead us to understanding, forgiveness, and peace.

E-Evoke Essence aligns us with the ultimate resource, the part of us that reflects the highest and best aspects of ourselves, which we call the Essential Self.

  • Grounded in consistent, reliable resources, we are aligned with the ultimate resource – the Essential Self.  The individual’s path to wholeness becomes clear, with Comfort, Gratitude, and Joy as our guides.
