Extended 5-day introduction to Brainspotting
My training team and I are excited to offer this unique in-person Brainspotting experience at Sedona Mago Center for Well-being, a one-of-a-kind healing center near Sedona. You will learn and naturally embody the fundamental setup frames and theory of Brainspotting in a diverse and inclusive group setting. The training portion offers opportunities for you to put what you're learning to immediate use.
Participants will witness and facilitate personal and group healing using 4 different Brainspotting setup frames. You will also experience Sundo Energy Flow Yoga, starlight meditation, and freshly prepared pescatarian/vegetarian meals to nourish your physical, spiritual and energy bodies. Sedona Mago is a tranquil oasis providing daily access to the famous healing garden, meditation labyrinth and miles of walking trails on over 600 acres of sacred land in the heart of the red rock Arizona desert.
This is a chance for all of us to unplug. No TV’s in the rooms and wifi and cell service is limited mostly to the Welcome Center and Chun Hwa meeting hall areas. The goal of this time together is to nurture our mind, body, and spirit while embodying how Brainspotting can help heal and expand those who are ready. Give yourself the gift of a retreat experience in the heart of Arizona's red rock wilderness.
Experienced practitioners repeating Phase One will get a chance to gain clarity as we deepen and broaden our experience with BSP theory and practice with breakout groups. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to boost your confidence and learn to attune with ease.

BSP Training Overview:
BSP TRAINING OVERVIEW Brainspotting Therapy™ (BSP) is a therapeutic process that uses specific points in the client’s visual field to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. BSP uses relevant eye positions, somatic awareness, focused mindfulness and the therapist’s attunement to process and release the stored traumas which underlie a wide range of emotional and physical problems. This brain-body-based treatment is an open and integrative model. BSP can be adapted to many different areas of specialization and integrated with other treatment models. In this introductory Brainspotting: Phase1 training, participants will learn four basic BSP techniques. In addition, participants will receive an overview of the:
standards of care and professional practice for brainspotting practitioners,
research that supports the primary assumptions of brainspotting; and
challenges of research and evidence-based treatment for conditions such as Complex PTSD
Registration Includes the Brainspotting training, accommodations & 3 meals a day

Testimonials: Fall 2023 Sedona Brainspotting Group
“This was a powerful and healing training. It was more than learning Brainspotting though. The power came in the easy and natural group cohesion, the helpful facilitators, watching my cohort heal in their demonstrations, the fact the entire group was at the same place and same remote environment, and the disconnect from the outside world.” - Katie V. (Wisconsin)
“I was so impressed with the quality of the instruction, both in terms of knowledge base and degree of empathy and compassion. On a personal level, I feel much better after the brain spotting experience.” - Fred L. (Alaska)
“My experience at the Sedona Phase One training was very powerful and continues to unfold even a week after the training. I found the practicum work to be highly beneficial following the classroom learning. As a clinician I was able to practice the learned skills and as a client was able to get a felt understanding of the healing process. Participating in the demo was such a profound, impactful, deep experience. It was instantaneously healing and freeing. Joy’s attunement and compassionate/ confident nature combined with a safe/supportive atmosphere was perfect for healing. I continue to feel so incredibly grateful for the opportunity! Additionally, the setting, Sedona Mago, was beyond words and added a dimension to this training that is almost indescribable… the best energy! The grounds invite inward exploration and connection. The food was not only delicious but nurturing as well. It was hard to leave!!” - Heidi L. (Illinois)
