Self of the Therapist: Strengthening the Therapeutic Container with the Help of Spirituality (MACP Seminar Series) @ AUSB Community Hall
Jan 28 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Guest presenter: Rudi Lion, MFT

Holding our clients’ stories and lives can be challenging. Cultivating joy and maintaining self-care helps us with the successful containment of our clients’ narratives. How do we establish a sustaining practice that grounds and strengthens our therapeutic container? How do we stay present, balanced and inspired in our work?

Developing a spiritual practice has greatly enhanced my personal as well as my professional life. Feeling connected to my higher self, my soul, the Divine, Source (whatever terminology feels comfortable to each of us) has increased my capacity to love and hold family, friends and clients alike.

This class offers a meditative reflection on who you are as a therapist in the context of your own spirituality. Through journaling, guided meditations, dyads, class discussion, and an art project, you will leave the day with a renewed connection to yourself and the Divine of your understanding. In addition, you will have a greater awareness of how you want to integrate spirituality into your clinical practice. A portion of the day will be spent in silent, reflective time.

Please bring a journal, lunch, and be prepared to spend it at a local park in silence.

Please RSVP to Danielle Gomez at dgomez[at]

Rudi Lion is a therapist in private practice in Santa Barbara and also adjunct faculty at Antioch University of Santa Barbara. Since she was a young girl, Rudi had a hunger for understanding the great human existence. Her daily spiritual practice keeps her grounded and averts burnout and overwhelm. Spirituality is often not an easy subject to broach and explore. With this seminar, Rudi wishes to encourage that conversation.
