Along side of individual sessions, you are invited to participate in a myriad of group process experiences that are offered throughout the year.  Because even though the details of our lives may be unique and dynamic, the root of what’s needed to heal often times is the same, I have found that health and wholeness happens exponentially in a group (especially circles of women - which have had an immense healing impact since the beginning of time).

Connection, belonging and empowerment will be the impetuses to our journey.  

Those who wish to join in the group process without individual therapy will be welcomed and assessed on a case by case basis.  Depending on the group process, each client will be required to meet with Jackie at least once for an intake so that both client and therapist can engage in dialogue about their interest and readiness for that particular group process.   Any educational/experiential workshops will be open to all without an intake. 

why group THERAPY? what are the benefits?

  • Groups provide support. Hearing from others with similar issues helps you see that you’re not alone in having challenges. Groups help you remember that you are not alone. 

  • Groups provide a sounding board. Hearing from other people can be very beneficial, specifically when it is facilitated in a way that fosters healthy giving and receiving feedback. You will receive a wider range of perspectives and help you relate to the problems more effectively.

  • Groups offer an “in the moment” opportunity to explore how you relate to the world around you.

  • Groups teach you about yourself. Every other person in the group, not just the facilitator, offers a mirror for you to see yourself and therein offer a pathway to understanding your experience more intimately. By utilizing “mirrors” through other people or situations, we uncover the blind spots that may be blocking your ability to overcome your problems.

  • Group therapy costs less than individual counseling. Group therapy is much more cost effective in that you receive more sessions and experiences for same or less financial investment.

Illuminating Consciousness: Shadow Work and Energy Psychology   The body holds incredible wisdom of healing and integration. As yogis, we utilize the powers of the body through physical movement, breath and meditation to both deeply listen and discern the actions we must take in order to find a place of “flow” in this, at times, tumultuous life.   On a large spectrum, no living being is left untouched by pain, difficulty and challenges in this life. We will examine the multidimensional field that is your own unique journey through in-depth contemplation of each chakra and how it relates specifically to the psyche and the consciousness of our own minds.   We will also review how the physical body will eventually communicate the wounds and traumas that have been supressed or repressed through physical illness or disorder and what the body is asking us to do through this, at times, confusing and painful expression.   Through compassionate hearts and minds, we will call forth the parts of ourselves that we have forgotten, caste out or have been shamed and see their power in transcending into the most healing journey that is ultimately the dharma (purpose) of our soul’s journey - to enter into a journey of flow and healing.   Dive into discussion and experiential exercises that will help each student embody the wisdom of Energy Psychology and introduce the power of shadow work as integral to not only individual healing but the healing of the collective consciousness as well. Truly connect the physical realm with the energy that we all know exists. Tap into the Divine Consciousness that is you, unleash creative force and begin a journey of empowerment through our time together.

Sacred Tools: Mudra and Mantra for Healing   Notice. In this moment, where are you holding tension?   Swami Chetanananda teaches that life is about releasing as much tension as possible so that we can access the great abundance that is offered to us at any given moment... right now. Whether it is physical, mental, emotional or relational, we all have holding patterns that prevents us from opening to the limitless possibilities of the NOW.   Harness the intelligent system of yoga through the power of mudra (hand positions) and mantra (a tool of voice activation that transforms the mind). In doing so, you will learn to alchemize tension into freedom. There is no need to “think through," process or actively unwind the tensions we hold. Rather, we simply surrender to the wisdom of the body and let go.   In this workshop with Jackie, we will review the energy system known as the chakras (wheels of light and energy). Through this understanding we connect with our whole selves (physical and emotional) and our relationships with the world. From there, we will learn specific mudras and mantras to activate healing of any wounds, traumas and tensions that are diminishing our true power of living.   See the Sacred. Find your Voice.

Tasting Life: a Journey into Tantra Yoga + The Radiance Sutras   In contemplating a way to describe this afternoon together, words beyond what Lorin Roche writes in his book “The Radiance Sutras” pales in comparison to the beauty that flows from this conversational poem between two lovers.  We will gather for a day of exploration deep into the heart of Tantra, embracing the Radiance Sutras as the vehicle through which we will transport our hearts, bodies and souls into a love affair with our most sacred self. At {be}, we encourage all who enter this space to awaken to the most sensual life.  In this 5 hour journey together, students can expect to not just learn but to feel the teachings of Tantra as we play the vibrant strings of the heart through readings and explorations of this intimate conversation between God and Goddess - which are all within you - through the text The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche.  This text is a translation of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, one of the early teachings on yoga and meditation. The name, loosely translated, means “The terror and joy of realizing oneness with the Soul."  We will examine the potent elixir of embracing duality in all of its forms and embodying life with both fire and nectar practices in body, mind and heart. Weave a more intimate connection with your life, yogis. There is more in each breath that you perhaps have ever realized.
