SourcePoint Therapy ® Advanced Intensives

The Single Point.

This one phrase describes our advanced trainings for the coming year. Look at the points on the spiral in the image above. Each one of those points is an Advanced Intensive.





All of what you learned in the basic three modules is contained in each of those points. The field of the Intensive allows you to go deeper into what you have learned. The single point expands infinitely.  As Bob and I continue to explore the Navel Point, for example, we are amazed at what emerges, at how much can come from the practice of simply holding the Navel Point with a simple question and then scanning. What you are doing doesn’t look any different from the outside, and certainly the actual holding of the point is easy to learn. What’s actually happening there, at many levels simultaneously, is complex, open to expansion, and worth exploring further.

Simplicity is the key word of SourcePoint Therapy, and simplicity is a challenge. People want to learn more, and they always want to know more. There is a difference between learning more and knowing more. The Intensives will help you to know more, to understand what it is you are already doing. You will experience more of the ongoing process of getting out of the way. We’ll work with the integration of SourcePoint into your daily life and professional practice.  And we’ll go deeper into that Awareness that is the Source from which SourcePoint arises.

Our intention in the Intensive is to support, affirm and nurture the growth of each person present, to focus on specific individual issues and questions, and to bring Awareness to your unique path. In daily Awareness sessions we’ll explore how you can develop for yourself your own way of working with the principles and practices of SourcePoint Therapy. What doors can it open for you? Where can it take you? How does it become a part of you rather than something you’ve learned?

All this is possible because we will be working in a small group. Bob and I will be both be there, and the maximum attendance in Santa Fe is eight people. That’s a lot of individual attention, and lot of support from your fellow practitioners.

Our vision is of a community of practitioners that support each other, guided by, but not dependent on, the original teachers, with a common love of exploring health, energy, and consciousness.

Those of you who have completed Module Three know that you can’t be in the field of the Blueprint without experiencing transformation. With the Intensives, we want to provide an environment where the personal transformative process continues in the context of loving, supporting community.

I can’t give a daily schedule or a list of new techniques you will go away with. I can say, there will be regular anchors and activities: Awareness sessions with time for questions, as well as demonstrations, discussions, lots of practicums with feedback, meditations, and time to process and share.  Depending on the group, here are some possibilities of what we’ll cover: further work with the Navel Point, the Third Point, and the Guardians; continued exploration of the Blueprint and how it works. How ancestral patterns and belief systems obstruct the free flow of information from the Blueprint. The mandala of the body and the energy worker as artist. We can look at issues that arise when working with energy: psychic protection, clearing space, grounding yourself, to name a few. And, we’ll take your questions ahead of time so we can integrate them. I will be in touch before the training to find out what you hope to experience, what questions you have, and what you would like to focus on.

I’m writing this in response to people who have wanted more information about these advanced training, and also for those who have not yet completed the basic modules, to invite you to continue the exploration.

I return you now to the image above, where the spiral growing from the triangle represents the path of SourcePoint training. I ask you to reflect on your own journey with SourcePoint, beginning with the three points of the first three modules, the triangle.  Feel the generative energy of the triangle, and how it gives rise to new life, continued movement. There are many points on the spiral. There isn’t a set linear curriculum for Advanced Intensives. Each one is unique. Yes, there will be some repetition of information you already “know.” And yes, you will be challenged to know more, always.

Or as Bilbo Baggins said “The Road goes ever on and on.”

Practical details. The two Intensives scheduled in Santa Fe for 2012 are full; we have a waiting list and may schedule more if there is interest. Contact us through the contact page of the website, or personal email or Facebook, for more information. The cost of the Intensive in Santa Fe is  $750 for the 5 days and we are open to making arrangements to pay in installments. The Intensives in October in Laguna Beach and in Europe in autumn of this year still have openings and are not only for Structural Integrators. Contact Information can be found on our website.

No matter what teachings I receive or what practices I follow, the question for me is always: how do I integrate this into my daily life? How does this become a part of who I am, not just something I experience while meditating or working with a client or in a workshop or retreat?

So, how can the principles and practices of SourcePoint be applied in everyday life? You can practice it by using it in your work with clients, family or friends. You can visualize the points to experience connection to Source. But how does it help in those every day situations of stress and conflict we all experience?

Look at things from the perspective of Order, Balance, Harmony and Flow. Take time to question: what does this situation need to bring a greater balance to it, a greater flow? An answer may immediately appear. More likely, you will just hold the question in your mind and let it guide you. Once you have asked that question, your deep intention becomes to act in alignment with that fundamental flow, and that will have its effect. The question itself opens a door into insights, into awareness. To be able to stop and ask the question in the midst of a conflict is a moment of detachment, of awareness.

In any given situation, you can ask yourself: how do I stay connected to Source in this particular situation? How do I ground myself? And, perhaps most importantly, how do I activate that information of Source in this situation? No matter what the circumstance, you can take a moment to visualize the Diamond Points around yourself. Ask yourself: what point does this situation need the most? Is it connection, or grounding, or activation? Any difficult situation wants transformation, that’s a given, but which of the other three points do you need to dwell on, spend some time with, in order to bring that transformation? As you visualize the Diamond Points for yourself you bring that energy into the room, into the situation. Human health isn’t just a matter of individual health: it’s the health of a relationship, a community. As you visualize the points for yourself you remind yourself of a simple fact: change begins with you, not with what the other(s) may or may not do.

The activation point is very helpful in a common pattern: when we know what we should do, or want to do, or have learned we need to do, but we stay stuck in acting according to the same old patterns. The information required for transformation is there, but it still isn’t activated. In these instances you might find yourself moving quickly through the source point, pausing a little longer at the grounding point, and spending a long time with the activation point before moving onto the transformation point. This can be done in meditating with the points for yourself or doing them for someone else.

Source, Grounding, Activation, Transformation: these points are not abstract concepts. Every day I feel them creating an energetic structure that supports me in so many different situations: the loom upon which I weave the patterns of my life.
