Session 211: The Undivided Self: The Role of Dual Consciousness in EMDR Therapy

Thank you

Ongoing concerns of COVID pandemic, political divide, and social injustice, trigger fear and trauma. Planetary, societal, ancestral, and spiritual perspectives assist in understanding EMDR as a transpersonal therapy, and the role of integration of egoic and expanded states of consciousness in personal and social transformation. Transpersonal tools using internal focusing and mindfulness throughout the EMDR protocol, potentially awakens consciousness leading to swift trauma resolution, adaptive functioning, emotional regulation, RDI, and connection to a holistic and integrative perspective of the undivided self of personality and higher-self. New meaning and context of trauma is realized as inner wisdom emerges healing the roots of ancestral, personal, and societal wounds. Identify applications of dual consciousness and state change within EMDR protocol, taking clients from trauma to transformation, social and planetary interconnection, and unification of essential self used in creating a future template. Case presentation, video, and experiential exercise demonstrates application to EMDR Therapy.

  1. Participants will be able to identify the application of integrating dual consciousness and state change within the EMDR protocol for taking clients from trauma to transformation and unification of essential self.
  2. Participants will be able to identify 3 key elements of meditation practices that integrate within the EMDR protocol for the healing of trauma related to personal, cultural, and social injustice experience, while awakening consciousness that assists us in approaching our current world crises from inner wisdom, strength, and unity.
  3. Participants will be able to identify two internal skills of transpersonal resourcing though inner focusing, mindful awareness, and resonance, utilizing higher consciousness internal resources and sensing, which can be applied to client EMDR sessions, leading to a future template true to the 3 prong AIP model, changing the context of the trauma.
