Below is a list of the upcoming training opportunities, brought to you by The Evolution Group, Inc.

Mindfulness-Based Somatic Emotional Processing

Our bodies, our feelings and emotions, is where our inner guide resides. Here is the wisdom. Sensory experience tells us about our experience, there is a quality to it, a nature to it, and a flow. It tells us, we smell the elk, we feel the trees, and we hear the wind, It is the old way.

Mindfulness Based Somatic Emotional Processing (MBSEP) as it is now called, is a coming back to basics – to our senses. The need for emotional regulation and a way to process emotion is a basic human function. The simplicity and flexibility of the MBSEP approach to emotional regulation and processing allows it to be used as a clinical tool which can easily and seamlessly be introduced to support the therapeutic process/flow within other therapy/counseling techniques. MBSEP is especially effective when the therapist wants to shift from “talk therapy” to a somatically based, non-cognitive approach to emotional regulation and processing.

Integrity Recovery Workshop

The Integrity Recovery Workshop is about training in recovering wholeness. This implies a multi-layered process, as we humans are a conglomerate of aspects, including mental, emotional, physical/material, and spiritual. Healing, then, takes place on multiple levels.

We have found that group work broadens the reach in self-discovery as it develops a balance between trust and vulnerability, from which place real growth and change occurs. Our team has developed a broad spectrum of educational and process groups to support you along your path to wellness. As part of your tailored treatment plan, you will be able to take learn about many of the following groups:

  • Integrity Recovery Group
  • Mindfulness & Meditation
  • Boundary Setting
  • Gratitude
  • Parenting Education
  • Sexual Wellness
  • Harnessing Anger
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Co-Occurring disorders
  • LGBTQI
  • Financial Education
  • Gambling Recovery
  • Indigenous Populations
  • Substance Abuse Recovery
  • Nutrition & Wellness
  • Gender Specific (Men’s & Women’s Groups)
