The Lucid Sessions

Introducing: New Insight Gatherings

Guided by Gil Bar-Sela

A playfully reflective experience to stimulate your potential.

What becomes possible when you see clearly?

In this experiential workshop we’ll use refreshingly generative tools for inner exploration, and approach life themes with curiosity and play. Envision what you want to create in your life, meet yourself from a new perspective, and walk away with tangible actions to propel you toward your new frontier.

Each session of the series will be a different experience, and each of them is stand alone -- no prior experience is needed. I invite you to join the first session, Zooming In. Come and discover yourself anew.  

Space is limited to 12 participants.

Journey to the Heart of Israel and Palestine

 

In challenging times, perhaps the most courageous act is to meet and humanize, and not abandon. Our primary purpose for this delegation is to support the peacemakers as we deepen our understanding of, and connection with, the land and people of the region. ~ Andrea Cohen Kiener

TCLP founder Leah Green began leading annual peace-building delegations to Israel and Palestine in 1991. Today, after 31 delegations and many conflict transformation workshops for Israelis and Palestinians, TCLP is one of the oldest organizations engaged in people-to-people peacemaking.

Journeys begin in Jerusalem with an intensive introduction to Compassionate Listening. The November 2016 delegation will focus on listening to and supporting Israeli and Palestinian peacemakers, while practicing our craft of listening and speaking from the heart. Through our daily practice in the field and our group sessions, participants come away with a deepened understanding of Compassionate Listening, a powerful skill set for peace-building in our families, communities, and in all conflict situations.

We listen to people whose lives are profoundly impacted by this protracted conflict. Our goal during these visits is to understand and dialogue with the person in front of us. Compassionate Listening allows dialogue to take place “heart to heart” and has an entirely different quality. In challenging times, perhaps the most courageous act is to meet and humanize, and not abandon. Our primary purpose for this delegation is to support the peacemakers as we deepen our understanding of, and connection with, the land and people of the region.

Harpitecture — Harp Sound Bath and Guided Journeying

 

Relax, let go, and tune up your mind-body in the soothing, sonic environment of the harp. 

Therapeutic Harp Practitioner Matt Tutsky and Integrative Healer Gil Bar-Sela join forces to offer a harp sound bath combined with a guided journey designed to reshape and heal your internal landscapes. 

We will use the harp’s gentle, yet powerful resonance in the body to slow down and ascend into an elevated state of consciousness where deep listening and healing can take place. 

Then, you will be guided through a mindfulness journey into yourself to let go of the hard exterior that no longer serves and connect with your own intuition, guidance, and true power.

Connecting with Calm

Connecting with Calm

These are difficult times.
For many of us, political conversations with friends and family have become too painful, and we are looking for strategies to manage our stress in this current political climate.
There is a way for us to connect authentically, despite our differences, while staying grounded. We can make our relationships with family and friends a little kinder. We can talk courageously about our hopes and fears, and perhaps learn something new about each other in the process.
In this workshop, Compassionate Listening facilitators Andrea Cohen and Gil Bar-Sela will offer practical tools to engage productively and empathetically in these tense situations. You will learn to:
- Speak from the heart without it turning into another futile fight.
- Cultivate skills needed to transform the space of conversation into a healing opportunity.
- Practice self-care while staying engaged. 

* Our intention for this event is to create space for a safe conversation, very different from a debate or an argument. If you have any thoughts, concerns or reservations please feel free to contact us with any questions. We'd be happy to talk privately to people who might be nervous about attending. Safety is our first priority! 

* In this safe container, we would also like encourage diversity of opinions. If you know of someone who holds a different perspective (maybe someone you would like to practice with) that could also benefit from this healing experience, we encourage you to bring them. Please contact us for a special two-for-one rate.
