Personal Transformation Intensive

Personal Transformation Intensive (PTI) is a powerful growth/therapy program for anyone seeking to live life to its fullest.   The PTI is an innovative adjunct to individual therapy because it takes people further in their healing process than they can possibly go in a one-on-one setting.

Most of us have mental, emotional and physical blocks that limit our joy, prevent us from knowing the truth about who we are and interfere with living up to our full potential. When we release these blocks, we allow our true self to be in charge of our life rather than old unacknowledged, hidden parts of us. Personal transformation means getting down below the surface of the roles that we play in life and reclaiming our authentic, deeper self. The PTI is a powerful experiential program that utilizes group process to release these blocks, explore our deeper selves and reclaim unacknowledged and hidden parts of ourselves.

Heart-Centered healing modalities utilize altered-states of consciousness to access unconscious material, a deeply experiential approach, an acknowledgment of the vital role of the client's own spiritual connection and an unfailing link with the unconditional love accessed through their heart center. PTI providers are thoroughly trained in the clinical techniques used and have at least three years of advanced training at The Wellness Institute in hypnotherapy, breathwork, and psychodrama.

How PTI Works

PTI is structured as a five-month program that meets one weekend each month from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon for an approximate total of 130 hours. Each weekend covers an educational theme that includes: Healing Codependency, Healing Addictions, Healing Sexual Abuse, the Mind-Body Connection, and Relationships.

PTI is facilitated by Yvon and Linda, two specially trained Advanced Heart-Centered
