Bringing mindfulness to action and compassion to life!

Our Approach

We approach healing with curiosity and kindness. Integraltherapy combines discussion, action and reflection - the components of mindful living. We like the acronym “MARC”: Meditation and Mindfulness, Active investigation, Reflection, Compassion and Connection as a template for investigation. We draw upon various meditation traditions including several Tibetan practices. In our work, we slow ourselves down purposefully, focusing not only on emotions but also on physical sensations, for when we are in our bodies we are more present and able to experience our pain and joy. When “present” we have a higher capacity to receive information from the external world and the world within us. We enrich our understanding of ourselves and others. Learning to observe and distance encourages shifts in our perception of the events, patterns. Our range of responses expands and our choice of responses becomes more skillful and deliberate.

Our approach can help you:

  • Increase awareness
  • Investigate choices
  • Learn to identify interpersonal conflicts as an opportunity for growth
  • Reduce reactivity
  • Live with intention
  • Rediscover your capacity for joy
  • Increase capacity to hold difficulties with compassion
  • Tap into spontaneity and creativity
  • Increase concentration

Presence grows through the practice of:

  • Slowing down
  • Learning to pause,
  • Developing our capacity to observe without judging
  • Noticing reactivity.
  • Relational mindfulness
  • Experiential investigation
  • Meditation ,Mindfulness and Compassion Practices


Definitions

Mindfulness is the moment-to-moment awareness. It is to be present to situations as they unfold.

Sociometry is the study of choice. We all make choices within interpersonal relationships. Choices are fundamental to life as human beings.

Active Investigation is based on the theory that creative expression has a healing effect on psychological problems. Action helps us expand and deepen our understanding.

Psychodramatic Processes We have drawn from the Psychodramatic theories of how we grow and develop. Role reversal, empathy spontaneity are cornerstones.

Relational mindfulness is moment to moment awareness of what is happening between us without judgement. Awareness and empathy increase with our capacity to reveres roles.

Study of Interpersonal Relationships helps us to gain knowledge about ourselves and our reactions in relationship.

By studying our interpersonal relationships we develop strategies that help us become more skillful in our communication.

Meditation is a practice that teaches us to slow down, pause and quiet the mind's chatter. Meditation practices help us see things as they are.

Conscious Action is the integration of presence and action.

Testimonials

The psychodrama master class was excellent. The teacher was wonderful; the class size was perfect." "The most valuable session I attended was Jaye Moyer's "Active Compassion: Mindfulness in Psychodrama & Group Process." The session was very small (8 participants) and was tremendous as a self-care and re-centering exercise. I have no training in psychodrama, but the experience was very powerful." "Very therapeutic!...excited to roll out with clients &...

“You provide a gentle atmosphere of trust by your presence… In my mind, I finally have been able to move beyond the pain by imagining getting validation and support for the injustice; both have been empowering actions that have moved me from the paralysis (caught in the headlight) of victimhood- especially the Benefactor [practice])… I learned to physically connect with my body and soothe myself and have found an amazing way to do so, one I never thought of...

“I have deep gratitude for all the learning experiences I have had with Jacquie and Jaye. They have an inspiring gentle presence that they bring to all of their workshops… Jacquie and Jaye have perfectly merged the here & now philosophy of psychodrama with the practice of mindfulness allowing people to develop and rehearse the behaviors of compassion… I encourage every clinician to learn from Jacquie and Jaye as it will grow your own compassion, bring the practice...

The first time I stepped into the Labyrinth I was very naive to the journey I was about to take. I had no expectation, but stepped gingerly, not sure how many walls I would bump into and bounce off of along my way. I had never experienced psychodrama before and am grateful to the women I journeyed with who gently held my hand and guided me. I was unprepared for the raw emotion and the profound learning, and thankful for the incredibly safe and loving environment Jaye...

I attended your session, "Releasing Personal And Interpersonal Wounds Through Forgiveness," was quite please and inspired by your presentation and process. I appreciated your series of warm ups, allowing us to choose mantras, and warming us up to how each of us may have harmed others, been harmed by them, or by ourselves. I was struck by how this process would be welcomed and easily could be adapted and applied to some church groups with which I am associated. Because of...
