In this Deep Talk, psychotherapist Helen Kramer will share pragmatic and accessible tools to help us dissolve ‘interferences’ in our lives to unlock greater potential for liberation and joy. Sounds amazing, right?!
Originally trained as a psychotherapist, very early in her career, Helen began to intuit that there were biological interferences to (or distractions from) our realizing our infinite potential. In her studies, she was deeply impressed by the work of Kurt Goldstein, who believes that all living organisms have an organic drive for mastery. His work deeply resonated with Helen’s own experience and her life’s work has been about identifying the interferences to this drive and developing the tools to remove them.
Helen calls her work “emotional education,” as opposed to psychotherapy, and describes it as a nonjudgmental, nonpathological approach to developing what she calls “replacement behavior,” so that we can transform any pattern that is causing pain or discomfort. Without knowing these interferences exist we often blame ourselves and others for unproductive or painful behavior. Understanding and replacing these interferences liberates us all from the unnecessary blame and constriction that robs us of the energy we need for growth.
Where: This Deep Talk will be held in Helen’s beautiful Manhattan apartment where she has been holding salon style gatherings and private sessions for many years.
