ICP Supervisor Talk: Anthony Guarnieri, "Kaleidoscopic Supervision"

Monday, October 1, 2012
In this seminar I propose a new practice of psychotherapy that transforms the role and assumptions of traditional psychotherapy. I call for a new engagement with healing that is non-formulaic, based on no individual school of thought or predominant culture: an approach that is non-reductionistic; non-pathologizing; non-pharmacological; non-deterministic; and in many ways, non-Western. This new approach re-claims and honors people who have been marginalized and subjugated.

Kathleen Dunbar, "From Parts to Wholenesss"

Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2011
One way to describe therapy is helping clients discover how to make good choices for themselves. What is exponentially transformative is helping clients distinguish their “True Self”—their Wise Man or Wise Woman—from the gallery of “Parts.” Then making good choices isn’t just a practice of using tools. When a client inhabits his or her True Self, good choices come naturally.

It is the archetypal “Doctor of Kindness” that acknowledges all disharmony through non-dual consciousness. The great women healers offer insight into the healing power and strength of their spiritual connection as well as the methods they used to attain mastery.
