Overcoming Addictive Thinking and Behavior – A Path to Inner Freedom

August 16, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

| $220


Fixed ideas and habituated behavior patterns are the greatest obstacles to individual, social and environmental transformation.  They block our quest for self determination, self expression and self empowerment.  They create restrictive living, unhealthy lifestyles and ultimately ill health.  Most chronic illnesses result from long term habituation to unhealthy life patterns.  And addictions of all kinds are a direct consequence of the fixed positions of neediness and desperate search for gratification.

Using a variety of cognitive, experiential, artistic, dramatic-expressive and participatory activities, you will discover the full power of human experience.  This skill set will allow you to access the hidden domain of the subconscious psyche through the physicality and vitality of the body on the one side, and the eye of the spirit on the other.  There you will meet the habitual characters and discover creative new resources which will transform the old into the new.

“It was impressive and moving to watch Dr. Goldberg in action at Esalen Institute with a young man suffering from drug addiction and emotional pain. Goldberg’s compassion, wisdom, and the quality of his listening was outstanding, and the results were truly remarkable!” ~ Allan Badiner, Contributing Editor, Tricycle Magazine

“The single most powerful experiential technique or therapeutic tool for self discovery. It is safe, empowering and will revolutionaries the need and dependency on psychotherapy because it cuts to the heart of the limiting issue. This has been a profound and moving experience.” ~ Dr Rene Nassen, Head of Psychiatry, Lentegeur Hospital,
