connecting psychotherapy and spiritual growth for human awakening
This page lists day workshops, weekend workshops, and “other workshops” in date order. The workshops are intended to deepen and enrich through insight and understanding, both experiential and intellectual. Except where listed in “other workshops”, they take place in a beautiful and peaceful setting in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Southern Spain at weekends.
To help you decide which workshop is right for you, consider which theme attracts you most. If you are entirely new to personal growth, An Introduction to Inner Work is the best place to start. All the workshops are open to beginners or those with experience of inner work, both individuals and couples. For more information about working in groups see this interview about group therapy.
Please also see courses for further exploration and deepening on your inner journey. For longer courses see the Psycho-Spiritual Development Course and for training with Richard see Online Training and the Psycho-Spiritual Training Group. The calendar listing provides dates of all courses and workshops.
HOW TO BE HAPPY4 July 2015 A Workshop on the Three Principles of Happiness
Nothing makes you happy. Real happiness simply is. Many of us have forgotten about happiness—genuine happiness. There are three rules or attitudes to remember and practice. Practice is the key element. It is not and never is enough to know, to collect knowledge, and become clever. Real intelligence is recognizing the need to practice, what to practice, and how to practice it.
In this workshop we will remember and reclaim happiness from wherever we lost it. Using visualization, sharing writing and drawing, emotional sharing and release, breathing exercises, work in pairs, guided imagery, meditation we will discover practice and gain insight from the three principles of happiness.
There are currently no weekend workshops planned in 2015.
Richard is available to run workshops on therapy and spiritual growth internationally. If you would like to organize an event or invite Richard to facilitate an existing group please contact us.
Richard also works with existing groups, businesses and communities who are experiencing difficulties in achieving their aims. For full details of his group dynamic approach see Facilitating Groups and Communities.
To Receive Workshops Updates:
Working with Richard has literally changed my life. His supportive workshops helped me to see the restrictive patterns that I was living my life by and allowed me to move towards a life of greater self-responsibility and one in which I can respond to situations rather than simply react…In great appreciation of the quality of work that you offer… D.E.
You have never been forgotten. I have just completed a 5-day residential seminar, which was OK, but not a patch on your groups. The profundity of experience, energy and fun of your workshops has never been surpassed. Since my experiences with you, I have largely been attracted to people and practices who work intuitively in the moment; I think it is a rare gift, even in these so-called enlightened times. Peter Zealley, Craniosacral Therapist
