Neuroscientific advances in memory reconsolidation enable us to achieve therapeutic breakthroughs with previously unheard of consistency. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to engage the neural process that decommissions implicit learnings that drive PTSD, compulsive behaviors, and insecure attachment. You’ll see how reconsolidation underlies the effectiveness of a wide range of therapies and is key to transformational change. Videos and live demonstration will show you how to mobilize the brain’s power to unlock and dissolve long-entrenched schemas, ego states, and emotional conditionings. You’ll discover:
- The series of steps in the brain’s core process of profound unlearning
- The process that swiftly reveals the emotional schemas generating symptoms
- How to combine resource states and negative learnings into the juxtaposition experience that triggers reconsolidation and transformational change
- How to shift unconscious emotional learnings into richly felt, conscious targets of change
