Earth-Based Psychotherapy Training


For thousands of years, cultures across the world have utilized earth-based practices for healing. These rituals have a deep connection with the earth and are guided by powerful forces. These practices utilize the healing attributes of the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire.

Come explore and practice how to weave these ancient practices with modern psychotherapy techniques, particularly Internal Family Systems. In this immersive on campus program, you will learn and practice how to utilize these practices to heal depression, trauma, anxiety, and everyday disease. Through lectures, discussions, and exercises, you will learn

  • The basics of Internal Family Systems 
  • The properties of earth, water, fire, and air and how they can be used for healing 
  • How to connect with your personal guides, helpers, angels, and/or power animals 
  • Become aware of Legacy Burdens (also known as trans-generational transmission of trauma) and how those inform your beliefs and decisions 
  • Recognize whether your beliefs and decisions may be a carryover from past lives 
  • Release any negativity that you carry.

Whether you are a clinician, coach, or simply someone seeking tools for a happier and freer way of being in the world, take home several practices and tools for embodying a new way of living.
