We Are All One

This workshop is designed for those familiar with the state of interconnectedness and those who are beginning to understand of nature of “Oneness.”  Participants do not have to be of any spiritual, religious, or theoretical perspective to appreciate how “We Are All One” joins us collectively.  Our approach provides fundamental principles that underly personal development and transformation and is applicable to the therapeutic experience.  Our workshop will provide both theoretical and practical approaches to core, intrinsic experiences of single unity and integration.

As humans we have a compelling urge to discover and become aware of our true nature, which is innate, and lies at the core of our being.  This truth connects us all. We acknowledge that every culture has different traditions, attitudes, and values, yet underneath the quest we are all the same. We seek to awaken this sense of oneness through connection where we experience universal happiness and love. A central problem arises in that we have become conditioned by our fears and anxieties to believe that unifying consciousness risks the loss of our own self-identity. This is a myth. This self we are protecting is a mere image, which we have created to separate our known self from our unknown self. The belief has fostered the dualistic split that we are either all one or we are all separate.

What are the characteristics of this experience of interconnectedness? How can we achieve such a state of oneness in our daily lives? How might we become free of the self-design we have formed so that we might understand the whole of who we are? How do we achieve a deeper self-awareness and become more sensitive to ourselves, others and the interconnectedness between us?

All life is spiritual, so all are problems are spiritually based. In this presentation we aim to challenge ourselves to integrate the spiritual with the psychological in therapy. We will do this through didactic and experiential exercises.
