THE POWER AND PRACTICE OF
WITH ANGELA AI & DAVID SUTCLIFFE
APRIL 28 - 30
"It's like ten years of therapy in one weekend."
NEXT WORKSHOP: JULY 7 - 9, AUSTIN, TX
"Once in a while an opening occurs which offers us the opportunity to breakthrough our limiting patterns & emerge as more pure, more free, more authentic versions of our selves. The workshops I have participated in with Dave & Angela provide the structure & support for this type of alchemical transformation. Through this work, I gain deeper access to the parts of me I have kept hidden, the parts that have been shamed & exiled. In the safety of the container offered, I reconnect with the true depths of who I am, I live into my essence, reclaim my power, & practice bringing the fullness of myself into community. I come away feeling more integrated & more alive, more intimate & more embodied, with an expanded sense of self, & an inspired relationship to the possibilities available to me. The support I have received has profoundly changed my life." - MARISSA BRANCA
APRIL 23 - 25
"Raw and real. After having done 'work' on myself for 10 years, venturing into the uncomfortable has become a familiar feeling. However, David's workshop helped me feel safe enough to face the parts of myself that I have been shying away from. Through his guidance, I was able to reconnect and integrate with a long-suppressed primal aspect of my being, which is rare even amongst similar practices. I feel amazing and powerful. My results are a testament to David's guidance and the work he shares."
ABOUT MY WORKSHOPS
I serve as a guide for people to discover and connect to their deepest gifts.
I help uncover the false assumptions and limiting beliefs that keep you from understanding and claiming our full power.
I work to confront and integrate the shadow – the hidden part of us that wants to withdraw from life, stay separate, judge, hate – with the awareness that these self-destructive impulses are protecting our deepest vulnerability and pain.
I work with the techniques of Core Energetics*, a somatic psychotherapy, to help release blocked emotional energy.
I believe in the collective wisdom of groups, and the healing power of relationship and community.
My workshops are co-creations. I encourage participants to not hold back, to speak their truth, and risk expressing everything inside them.
I teach empowerment through self-responsibility. This means letting go of blame and taking ownership of our emotional reactivity, relationships, and life circumstances.
I believe we are here to serve life, to support the evolutionary process, and that our fulfillment comes from feeling we are a part of, and contributing to, the growth of the whole.
WHAT TO EXPECT
My workshops are designed to bring you into deep states of feeling.
You will likely experience and be in the presence of powerful emotional expression.
You will only be asked to participate in whatever way feels right for you. I honor your autonomy, your right to work at your pace, in your way.
There will be movement, sound and touch. Boundaries are always respected.
There will be connection, laughter, and play. Fun and pleasure are integral to healing.
There will be structured exercises and times that feel like "controlled chaos". To access deep parts of ourselves it is necessary to enter into the unknown and let go of the ways we habitually control.
Creating safety is paramount. Safety creates a container that allows for deep work and healing.
WHAT IS CORE ENERGETICS?
Core Energetics is a dynamic body-based process that works with our unconscious resistance to being fully alive and present. It was developed by John Pierrakos in the 1970s, evolving out of his work with Wilhelm Reich and Alexander Lowen. Core works with the body as a means of exploring the unconscious mind. Physical techniques are used to support the expression of held-back feelings, with the intention of bringing consciousness to them. The liberation and integration of these feelings bring greater awareness, presence, self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and a renewed connection to the physical, mental, and spiritual vitality that is our birthright.
