For over 20 years, I have been supporting spiritual and religious practitioners, teachers/leaders, and communities to heal, grow, and thrive. Through the research and publication of four books on these subjects, over two decades of clinical experience as a psychotherapist, teaching extensively on these subjects, and integrating reader, student, and client feedback, there are deep and overarching themes and discernments that arise that are applicable to teachers and practitioners across a variety of religious, spiritual, and psychological traditions. This mentorship program is designed to teach, mentor, supervise, and “pass on the mantle” of this work to a small group of professionals who can become part of my personal referral network. Participants will emerge with knowledge, methods, protocols, and tools that can be integrated into their spiritual and religious communities, professional offerings, and personal practice in order to work skillfully and effectively in these areas. Each month of the mentorship includes (1) 2-hour instruction/inquiry group; (1) 2-hour supervision group; and (2) 1-hour peer-mentoring calls. Also included are (2) 30-minute mentoring calls with the instructor at the beginning and end of program.

Areas of focus include:

  • Clinical Interventions for Spiritual Emergence and Emergencies
  • Working with Trauma in Personal Practice and Spiritual/Religious Groups
  • Mediating Conflict between Spiritual Teachers and Students
  • Providing Psychological Support in Scandals and Exiting Communities
  • Preventative Psychological Health Protocols for Spiritual Leaders, Practitioners, and Communities
  • Identifying and Healing Spiritual Bypassing in Spiritual/Religious Practitioners, Leaders, and Communities
  • Discerning Usefulness and Pitfalls of Psychedelics for Psychospiritual Integration, and Support for Psychedelic Crises
