Personal Transformation Intensive (PTI) Reach the deepest healing

The Intensive is a powerful heart-centered personal growth program. It is an experiential program for anyone who is seeking physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. The PTI is an innovative adjunct to individual therapy because it takes people farther in their healing process than they can possibly go in a one-on-one setting.

The Intensive integrates transpersonal, existential and humanistic psychological healing approaches to help you create deeper connection in relationships, with spirit and with yourself.

  • Take a giant leap forward in your emotional, mental, and spiritual life
  • Learn to create your life, not just observe it
  • Find more in your life beyond stress and boring routine
  • Improve your health and improve your finances
  • Find the meaning and purpose in your life
  • Feel fullness and joy in your life

The Intensive uses innovative and powerful techniques in a safe and accepting group setting, and thus creates healing and transformation that both compliments and also improves the ability to gain from individual therapy.
