The Masters Center for Transformation (MCT) Presents




July 11-17, 2018 (full, taking waiting list)

November 26-December 2, 2018

February 16-24, 2019 (residential, Maui)

Limited to 8 or 10 participants only


We are excited to be continuing to offer training to professionals in the healing/awakening field, and to have it unfold through the same intuitive, organic approach that we employ in our private and group work.

Participation in our foundational training is required for further training with us.

This training’s purpose is twofold: (1) to engage in very deep personal/relational/spiritual work; and (2) to deepen and expand your capacity to guide others through a dynamic, intuitively structured approach that optimally integrates body, mind, emotion, and spirituality.

We will be not so much teaching specific techniques as transmitting/providing a context for guiding others into the deepest sort of healing, awakening, and integration. Through this you’ll directly experience the essence of what I’ve covered in my books, as well as get an inside, illuminating look at how our work works.

The training will blend your personal work and your work with others; much of the teaching will directly and naturally emerge from whatever personal work needs to be done. Your experience in the training will be enhanced by being in a group with kindred spirits who are as deeply dedicated to their personal work and evolution as they are to being as effective a guide as possible in their work with others.


Imagine an approach to healing and well-being that integrates the psychological, somatic, emotional, social, and spiritual with exceptional effectiveness and efficiency. It’s Integral.

Also imagine that this approach does not rely upon nor operate from any preset methodology, but rather allows structure and direction to spontaneously arise in fitting accord with our real needs, whether in individual, couple, or group contexts. It’s Intuitive.

And imagine that this approach works deeply and thoroughly with all our emotions, going to the heart of each, recognizing that emotion connects body and mind, past and present, intention and action, containment and expression, biology and biography. It’s Emotion-Focused.

And imagine that this approach operates in a deeply relational context, making a priority out of illuminating and deepening the connections between ourselves and others, and also between various aspects of us. It’s Relational.

Finally, imagine that this approach’s emphasis on relatedness is rooted in intimacy, not only intimacy with others, but also intimacy with all that constitutes us — including our every emotion — so that the personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal are all together honored and worked with. It’s Intimate.

This, all brought together in the context of our innate wholeness, describes the kind of work that you can expect to engage in and learn about in this training.


Each training is for those who (1) have a minimum of three years working full-time as a psychologist, psychotherapist, or counselor; (2) feel a very strong resonance with our way of working and with my books; and (3) have an abiding passion not only for working with others, but also for their own healing and awakening. (Some exceptions may be made for those who do not meet the three-year requirement.)

Limiting each training to 8 or 9 participants ensures that each person will have ample time to receive in-depth work and guidance. The training will be both a sanctuary and crucible for working with your edge psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually.
