Reaching Out On the Inside: Processing Courage, Choice and Change While Confronting Our Shadow Selves

Presented by Donald M. Mihaloew, Ed.D., LMFT, CFLE

We have two egos, not one, and two unconsciouses, not none! As such, we need to know the differences and learn how to use them all. Because the brain is 80% wired for survival, we all have to dig deeply inside our Selves to come up with a notion of creation based on True Self discovery rather than on false self protection. Otherwise, we squander our Life Energy compensating for real or imagined inadequacies and settle for a life of what Freud called “normal misery”. We can only go forward by going in deeply.  

Authentic Engagement: A Radical Way of Being

Presented by Bob Edelstein, LMFT, MFT

Authentic engagement is the ability of a human being to access all of their inner life, and then, in the most constructive way, to express what is important to them. This workshop will examine the three facets of authentic engagement. Participants will experience the differences between each of the three facets and learn how they can facilitate their clients to experience being authentically engaged in their life.
