Psychotherapy in the 21st century is interdisciplinary in unprecedented ways. Healing systems from all quadrants and zones weave together in infinite constellations, each depending upon the unique alchemy of therapist, client, and the present moment.
Integrally informed psychotherapy considers healing from any direction, and cultivates compassion and depth of consciousness to support healthy perspectives and actions.
It further involves co-creating cultures in which the client and the client’s universe are cherished, each moment is experienced as a gift and an opportunity, and healthy beliefs and actions are considered beautiful, good, and true.
Integrally informed therapists cultivate second—and third—tier functioning by discerning states of healthy response to the present moment and defensive states, disidentifying from defenses, and identifying with states of healthy response. Healthy states tend to flow from interior and interpersonal attunements and are experienced in multifaceted ways including accepting curiosity, compassion, pure presence, Big Mind, Big Heart, or grateful joy.
Reaching for these states while consciously attuning to self and client from AQAL perspectives distinguishes Integrally Informed Psychotherapy from other forms, many of which implicitly attune from AQAL perspectives.
Integrally Informed therapists develop inner authority to perceive reality from a shifting landscape. They develop Natural Healing Styles blending their most authentic selves, their passions, and their deepest gifts, while being open to instantly change direction if the moment calls for it, even at high velocities.
Dr. Witt will explore these principles, related practices, and demonstrate clinical techniques in this lecture.
BIO: Dr Keith Witt (www.kwwitt.com): Author of, The Gift of Shame, The Attuned Family, Sessions, and Waking Up—a textbook on Integrally Informed therapy that Ken Wilber says he “very much likes”—offers 36 years of experience as a therapist, lecturer, and teacher. His article, Developmental Engagement Field Theory, can be found in the summer, 2009 edition of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice. He has conducted over fifty thousand therapy sessions in Santa Barbara with individuals, couples, and families from all walks of life including the film and music industries, corporate management, information technologies, engineering, academia, the law, and a full spectrum of other cultures.
Dr. Witt is a licensed psychologist and marriage family therapist who has taught and practiced psychotherapy in Santa Barbara since 1973. He received his BA in psychology with honors from UCSB in 1973, his MA in Counseling Psychology from UCSB in 1975, and his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The Fielding Institute in 1982. His dissertation exploring somatic psychotherapy was entitled an investigation of the effectiveness of talking plus touching in enhancing health.
In the last decade Keith has been synthesizing and applying Integral psychology, various teachings about the masculine and feminine, ascending and descending spiritual practices, developmental neurobiology, manifestation systems, and attachment research. This work has yielded classes, workshops, books, and clinical training organized around the principle that therapists best serve by discerning and enhancing their natural healing styles.
SORRY, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.
Small and medium businesses represent major players in any growing and healthy economy. If you are a business owner or an entrepreneur, you may be facing challenges in an innovative, expanding, green economy. You might have been asking yourself the question: “are there sustainability processes and tools that are manageable, low-cost, and easy to implement within my business?”
Listening to your needs, Boulder Integral is launching a new series of group discussions, with four very dynamic and dedicated women – Fabiana Nardi, Kristin Wegner, Kimberlee Derhammer, and Natalie Shrewsbury. Welcome to Integral Sustainability in Action for Small and Medium Businesses! This inspiring and educational series of facilitated evenings offer an inviting space for authentic business leaders who have a passion for leaving a positive heritage in society through their personal and professional actions, but haven’t found the right community where to share their sustainable ideas and learn practical green management tools to put into practice the very next day. The processes and tools are strategic, low-cost, easy to implement with achievable goals and aimed at saving your business money, increasing profitability and nurturing a more just and sustainable society.
During this series of four gatherings of two and half hour group discussions, the facilitators–experienced business consultants with M.A. in Environmental Leadership–will present how to implement zero-cost green processes considering your company’s values, behaviors, culture, and business models. Participants will also be invited to put into practice each of the “monthly green tools” (a practical teaching/learning tool to take back to work with you) and test how it is possible to profit from environmental and social initiatives while creating a cultural change that makes sustainable projects an integrated part of their business strategy.
Extra Opportunity to get a personal learning experience: Enrolling in this program, participants will have an exclusive opportunity of having a twenty-five minute coaching session with the facilitators. During the coaching session, the facilitators will offer personal advice on how to start or improve sustainable practices within their company, taking into account the specific needs of their businesses.
