CEU-qualified Training

Cultivating Presence in the Relational Field (Closed)

Training for Social Workers, Licensed Creative Arts Therapists and Mental Health Practitioners.

(6 New York State CE credits for the above professions) * 

In developing mindful awareness we are growing our ability to be more present in our internal landscape. In interpersonal mindfulness we allow the lens to encompass what is happening around us in the context of the larger world. Close contact with others is our greatest longing but it also brings us into intimate contact with parts of ourselves and history where wounding has occurred. Wounding happens between people and becomes an obstacle to connection with people. Painful experiences frustrate our desire and ability to connect and be present in our practices as well. In mindful awareness, we learn how to attend to our internal state without losing our connection with others. We learn that the obstacle is actually the opportunity to deepen connection.

Jaye and JacquieIn this training we teach meditation to calm our nervous so that we can be more grounded in our bodies. When we are grounded, we are present. Group and dyad interaction will be used to support deeper listening and speaking. We will use action explorations, such as role play and role reversal in our investigation of obstacles.

This training is designed for therapists or mental health practitioners interested in integrating mindful awareness, meditation, and compassionate presence within the therapeutic setting. However, it is open to anyone who wants to explore interpersonal mindfulness.

At the completion of this training, participants will have learned to: 
1. Implement two techniques that help stabilize self and client
2. Translate mindful awareness from meditation to the relational space

3. Listen and speak with greater presence

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...

The value I receive from attendance in the workshops transcends both personal and professional space. Learning the techniques of deep reflection requires the time to pause, reflect—and discover. Moving from internal reflection to integration and then external action, requires a different set of tools—and practice, practice, practice! The ability to learn these techniques in a mutually-supportive environment with talented and knowledgeable guides and mentors is a...

I had the pleasure of participating in the mindfulness group presented by Jacqueline Siroka and Jaye Moyer. As a meditator with experience in several mindfulness-based programs, I found this format especially enriching and meaningful. Each session provided a new framework for applying mindfulness and compassion to one's life while offering a safe, supportive environment to question how these skills support our personal well-being. The opportunity to connect with other...

“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 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 &...
