About the Perceptual Integration Training
The Perceptual Integration Training is an educational
process for connecting with and reclaiming the center within one’s self
and for exploring the potential this experience holds for generating a
new grace in being.
Most of us desire to be in greater contact with what is
most deep and real in ourselves.
We understand that our outer circumstances and achievements alone do not
guarantee a sense of fulfillment. To become complete and whole involves
something more. While we expend a great deal of energy and time
supporting our outer life, experience shows us that nourishing and
cultivating our inner life is equally important. Ultimately, we discover
that our outer life does not evolve unless we do.
In these increasingly accelerated times, there is less and less quiet in
which to evolve our inner life. The events of the world are such that
our minds and hearts are rarely still. We forget that wisdom, decisive
action and good fortune arise most effectively from the still center

This approach does not represent or adhere to any ideology, religious stance or
rigid set of practices. It is an educational process for developing
self-awareness, starting from within. It encourages participants to access
their own inner wisdom that lies beneath their habitual concepts and beliefs,
and to embrace the authenticity of their own direct experience.
At the Heart of the Process
Through awareness practices, we develop the capacity to distinguish thought
from sensation and intuitive feeling from conditioned response. We learn to
locate our center and come to rest within ourselves. From this location, we are
able to choose our responses instead of being at the effect of circumstance. We
become proficient at managing our own state of being.
Physical presence is the capacity to ground one's self in the moment of
immediate felt experience. As we practice being embodied in the present, we are
released from our interpretations of the past and our projections of the
future. Consequently, anxiety is replaced by a new feeling of vitality for
realizing one's own vision for life.
Energy is what we are and what surrounds us. It is how we experience Spirit in
its infinite range of frequencies. The practice of energy awareness develops
our capacity to move within these energetic frequencies and to take creative
responsibility for their direction. This results in an infusion of expanded
self-awareness that connects us with a deeper sense of unity. We recognize that
we are more than we perceive ourselves to be.
About the Programs
The Perceptual Integration process consists of a series of one-day trainings in
which participants learn and practice together within a group setting. The
trainings are designed to create a safe, open and experiential environment.
Participants learn to focus on their state of being: how to manage it and how
to expand it with the skillful practice of self awareness. This opportunity to
practice with the support and shared energy of a training community is a
catalyst for individual learning and growth.
CREATIVITY AND CONSCIOUSNESS WORKSHOPS
Art manifests in the moment of direct experience. When you’re in the moment,
creativity naturally occurs. Conversely, when you are creatively
self-expressive, you connect with your intuition and easily come to rest within
your own center. In this special workshop, artistic media function as the
vehicle for learning to play with creativity. This workshop is about using art
to connect with yourself. By bringing meditative practice into painting, clay
sculpture, voice and movement, we connect with our own creative energies.
This training creates the opportunity for committed partners to nurture their
connection through the practice of presence. In a non-confrontational and
supportive environment, you and your partner practice engaging in the moment.
By emphasizing empathic listening, intentionality, energetic connection and the
generation of good will, together you create a deeper, more accepting and
loving state of being. When presence is practiced in intimate relationship, we
are not only heard we are received.
Training is available for those who wish to engage in an
individual course of study, designed to meet their particular needs,
circumstances and schedule. One-to-one training accelerates the
development of self-awareness through close guidance and support.
