Nurturing the Heart with the Brain in Mind This year-long advanced program in interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) is held in the quiet, supportive environment of Bonnie’s home and garden, about 15 minutes from Portland, Oregon’s international airport. Having discovered that three-day meetings in a small group seem to be optimal for this depth of learning and personal transformation, we will meet for four three-day gatherings beginning in March 2016.

At each meeting, we will address particular topics in ways that are designed to foster both right hemisphere and left hemisphere learning on the first and second days, and will spend part of the third day with in-depth consultation about your relationship with your clients and how it may touch your own inner experience. We will use sand, miniatures, art, and embodied tableaus, as well as reflection, contemplation, and conversation to cultivate embodiment of IPNB and support personal healing experiences.

At our first gathering, we will create Listening Partnerships for the year, a process that provides a unique depth of support. People are reporting that this way of exploring fosters a rich felt sense experience for making IPNB their own. This deepening awareness of ourselves and our clients can give our presence a foundation of solid understanding coupled with broad compassion.
