In this workshop, we will explore the intrinsically related processes of presence and relationship within the context of our personal history and contemporary culture. Our approach will be based on integration of contemplative practices, inner work, and relational practice. We will focus on two practices for relationship: 1) being present with another; and 2) understanding the psychological dimension in relationship and its use for meaningful connection with self and other. As well, we will attend to the community culture development as pertaining to our weekend workshop community with the aim of creating an optimal environment for learning for our own growth and for work with clients.


In this workshop, you will learn to:


• be fully present in the moment with yourself and another on multiple and integrated levels: physically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually;
• bring more vitality and flow into your practice, yourself, and your relationships;
• engage with life, personally and professionally, in a more profound way;
• discover a unique way to work with the development of psychological mindedness with yourself and with clients.


This workshop is particularly appropriate for counsellors, psychotherapists, mindfulness practitioners, and those interested in consciousness development and relationship.


This 1 ½ day workshop focuses on the art of developing increasingly full presence and attunement. The power of these two dimensions, skillfully applied, can take the practice of therapy, mindfulness, and being human to a deeper level by meeting from exactly where you and the other are, moment-by-moment, thereby facilitating resolution of whatever has been blocking the flow of life energy and arresting the course of nature and human development. The development of psychological mindedness as an integrated and fascinating part of the whole process will be demonstrated and practiced.


This workshop will be conducted as a collaborative learning community that practices presence and psychological mindedness. Dr. Avraham Cohen will facilitate the workshop, supported by Dr. Heesoon Bai. The day will include time in mindful attunement, contemplative and psychological teachings about presence and multi-dimensional connection, demonstrations, self-inquiry practice activities, and group process work. Attention will be paid to how these new learnings can be integrated into your practice and everyday life.
