Accessing and Living from Self Retreat

Presenter:

Richard Schwartz, PhD. and Loch Kelly, M.Div., LCSW

Location:

Mandali Retreat Center 

Via Belvedere 2
28898 Quarta Sopra (VB)
Italy 

Schedule:

September 24th - September 29th, 2018

Description:

Realizing Self is the centerpiece of both IFS psychotherapy and most meditative traditions of awakening. 

Self is not a part, not a meditation state, and not your ego. Instead, selfless-Self is knowable as your ground of Being, unity consciousness, unchanging essence, and open-hearted awareness. Accessing Self, and welcoming all our inner parts, is the ultimate medicine.

Through his writing and teaching Loch Kelly has become an internationally known leader in helping people quickly access Self in the midst of their daily lives. Richard Schwartz is expert at helping people bring the healing qualities of Self to their troubling inner voices, compulsive distractions, and feelings of vulnerability, inadequacy, and overwhelm. These parts of the psyche unburden when approached from the Self, with its natural respect, patience, and compassion. 

These two leaders will offer a retreat on how to access and live from Self.


Participants will leave with new tools for understanding and accessing their own Self Leadership.

*Pre-requisites:

  • This retreat is designed for experienced students ready to explore Self.
  • It is recommended that participants be familiar with IFS
  • It is also recommended that participants be familiar with Loch Kelly's book and audio meditations, Shift into Freedom. (UK) Shift into Freedom (US)

9th Annual Cape Cod Couples retreat: Bringing Courageous Love to Your Intimate Relationship with Richard Schwartz, PhD

Presenter:

Richard Schwartz, PhD

Location:

Craigville Conference Center, Centerville, Massachusetts

Schedule:

Thursday, October 11 - arrival after 4:30 PM, dinner at 6 PM
Sunday, October 14 - program ends 2 PM

Description:

We have all been taught that our romantic partner should end our misery and make us feel happy and alive. When he or she doesn't we wonder if they're the right one.  Yet, for most of us, no partner is capable of keeping our heads above the pools of pain and shame we bring to intimate relationships. Only we can drain those pools and become the primary caretakers for the young, needy parts of us that are drowning in those pools.  Once this inner trust is achieved, we can love our partners courageously and unconditionally because we don't need them to always do the heavy lifting of our spirits. Released from being our primary emotional caretakers, they can revel in the freedom that comes with being the secondary one.

This workshop is designed to help you and your partner learn how to achieve this kind of courageous love. Based on the presenter's Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy, you will learn how to find and heal parts of you that interfere in your intimacy. In addition, you will discover the effectiveness of communicating with your partner from a place of compassion, calm, clarity and confidence called the Self. When couples have Self-led conversations, their relationships harmonize naturally. They can discuss even highly charged issues productively and feel safe to reveal their most vulnerable parts to each other.

The workshop is for intimate partners of any kind. Appropriate for therapists and non-therapists.

Fees:

Tuition is $2,300 per couple including 3 nights lodging and 9 meals.

Description:

Are you ready to create emotional, mental, and spiritual change? Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy provides a groundbreaking model for transformation, taking an effective and compassionate approach to the parts of you that are stuck in reactive patterns and holding you back from living your best life.


Developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD, IFS draws on systems thinking with the view that the mind is made up of relatively discrete subpersonalities, each with its own viewpoint and qualities. Importantly, IFS also sees people as being whole underneath this collection of parts, the true Self.


Dr. Schwartz has been using IFS in retreat settings for more than 30 years. In this 5-day workshop immersion, you will participate in a variety of inner-focused experiential exercises in both large and small groups.

You will learn:

  • How to use IFS for identifying and engaging with the various parts of yourself
  • How and why these parts swing into action in ways that prevent you from experiencing the happiness and fulfillment you seek
  • To lead your life from the Self, an inner essence of calm, clarity, curiosity, courage, and connectedness.

Discover the new possibilities available to you as you free up energy trapped in parts of yourself with other agendas.

Enjoy spending time in the space of your wise inner self, independent of all the parts, who has been there all along, waiting to support you in becoming all you know you can be, as you experience newfound coherence in the pursuit of your life dreams.

Tuition: $525.00
