Dates: Thursday, April 28 - Monday, May 2, 2022 (limited space available)
In partnership with Ergos Institue, we are pleased to be offering this amazing master class in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, featuring Legacy Faculty Dr. Abi Blakelsee and Dave Berger. Dave and Abi have been mentoring under Peter A Levine, Ph.D., to teach Somatic Experiencing Master Classes so that post-advanced work can spread to the new areas and continue as his teaching slows. Information about Dave and Abi is included and provides a glimpse into the depth of knowledge and experience they have. We are so excited to welcome them to Saskatoon!
The training is being held in person.
Any covid precautions will be determined and communicated before the start date.
All trauma involves an encounter with threat and, hence, a touch with death. However, some individuals actually experience states of death from which they are revived. In fact, some of the deepest and seemingly most intractable trauma symptoms occur with clients who become “stuck” in these profoundly altered states of consciousness that emerged out of a near-death experience (NDE).
Every year, in the USA alone, over 50 million people undergo surgery and other invasive medical procedures, often with powerful dissociative and amnesic agents. Many individuals experience partial (or full) awakening during these procedures. These terrifying ordeals can create ruptures deep in consciousness; these often go far beyond our conscious/verbal capacity, making these traumas difficult to access and heal.
According to the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, 774 varied NDEs occur every day. Often debilitating, these same near death experiences hold the extraordinary potential for deep, positive, and enduring personal and spiritual transformation if they receive proper guidance and support.
Dr. Levine’s EOTN two-part series addresses how to apply Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) principles to a variety of near death experiences, including but not limited to drowning, vehicular accidents, physical attacks, illness, and surgery. SE techniques applicable to a wide variety of traumatic experiences are not always sufficient to treat trauma related to NDEs, and Eye of the Needle work is vital to complex cases demanding the most dedicated and skilled practitioners of SE.
