Graduating from Pacifica’s M.A. in Counseling Psychology Program in 2004 gave me a foundation that has nurtured my work since then. Today things have come full circle. This year, not only have I begun the Community Psychology, Liberation Psychology, and Ecopsychology Specialization of the Depth Psychology Program, but also the non-profit organization that I co-founded in 2007, Off the Mat, Into the World ®, will be offering a training intensive entitled, Mindfulness, Compassion, and Social Justice at Pacifica this December, 2016.
Our work at Off the Mat is steeped in an embodied exploration of leadership and justice. We believe that transformation can happen from the inside out, and our goal is to invite people to do the inner work that connects them to external realities such as oppression, inequality, and environmental destruction. We know that we are incredibly resilient beings, and that through the shadow work, the light emerges – and gets stronger. We see that a just world is possible, and we strive to inspire hope in the hearts of our leaders.
