Lifespan Integration Learning Labs with Lea (Vajralila)

Lea is excited to be offering her inspirations in these Learning Labs and to provide an opportunity for the LI community to come together to connect, learn and practice, in informal yet focused ways.

The workshops will link current perspectives from trauma and neuroscience and unpack their relevance and application to our LI work.

If you have inspiration for further Learning Labs, we welcome your ideas and requests. The aim is to explore relevant perspectives and look at ways they inform our understanding of the LI process, they are not a reflection of LICC core teaching unless specified.

We are offering each 2hr Learning lab for just £45 to make them accessible, and they can be booked on the Eventbright link. The link will only be offered to Therapists that have done at least a level 1 LI training.

Using active imagination, targeted coaching with timelines, and a map of the key developmental stages, AR protocol can repair deficits in developmental growth caused through trauma. We will show clips of the key developmental stages as well as map them and become familiar with what to look for when key developmental milestones are not reached through having to prioritise survival. We will show a video clip of this work in action.

  • Open to any therapist that has completed level 3 LI training or beyond.

This session will build on all of the previous sessions.

Lea will set a road road map of what could be expected in a Standard Protocol session. The emphasis on 3 potential areas will be drawn out. 1. Take child self to a safe place. 2. Adult protects and /or fights the persecutor 3. Adult supports child to stand up to the persecutor.  Included in this we will cover the use and appropriateness of ‘annihilating the persecutor’ in a SP session.

Sarah will include the knowledge of the healing potential of using active imagination to provide the body mind system with an equal or opposing force.

We will also get to look at an example of bringing in an Archetypal figure in this demo.

Open to any therapist that has completed level 2 LI training or beyond.

This is a new application of the PTSD protocol.

We have both found this profoundly helpful for ourselves and our clients in processing the trauma of the last year. At this 1-year anniversary of lockdown, it is a great time to be offering this to clients.

We will introduce the process, demonstrate it and provide the theory underpinning use off the PTSD Protocol with Covid-19 trauma

Open to any therapist that has completed level 1 LI training or beyond.

Beginning with Lea’s presentation of  Steven Porges’  Polyvagal Theory and its usefulness in LI work; we will then apply this by developing a personal Polyvagal map.

Using the map we will explore how Lifespan Integration timelines can be facilitated and tracked against the Polyvagal ladder.

This is taught in the new Level 1 training

Open to any therapist that has completed level 1 LI training or beyond.

Sarah will follow on from the previous Polyvagal workshop by exploring practical ways to regulate the client’s autonomic nervous system during timelines, to keep them in the optimal zone for integration. Positive Feedback Loops will be explained and their practical application in regulating the client in LI sessions.There will be space to practice this.

This 4 limb regulation is taught in the Level 1 training

Open to any therapist that has completed level 1 LI training or beyond

Lea will present on types of memory

Sarah will then present the theory of ‘memory re-consolidation,’ which unpacks the stages for fixed neural networks, holding implicit learning, emotions and behavior patterns, to become ‘plastic’ and update or ‘re-consolidate’, through LI timeline work. The stages will be mapped against the shifts seen in clients during sessions and reflections on which interventions between timelines facilitate the process. The aim is to become conscious of the neural process happening during LI Therapy and learn ways to optimize it when the process gets stuck. There will be a demo illustrating aspects of the teaching and Polyvagal theory in action.

The last portion of this session will be set aside for participants to ask questions about anything LI and share practice tips or dilemmas in an organic and relaxed way.

This method, based on extensive research is now included in the level 2 manual

Open to any therapist that has completed level 1 LI training or beyond.

When we learn that who we are is not acceptable, ego states can go off line leaving us alienated from our wholeness. This is particularly relevant for minority groups.

LI is an excellent way to go back in time and gather and affirm these ego states and welcome them back into the self. Lea will explore this in relation to being sexually and/or gender diverse, give case examples, video session clips and create a safe and non judgmental space for therapists to explore this area .

Lea will unpack the difference between who we identify as, who we are sexually attracted to, our biological sex and how we express ourselves. These areas are often lumped together.  For people who have all of these areas aligned in a socially acceptable way, it can be hard to understand that there are other ways to exist in the world, especially a world in which these differences are judged and shamed. For therapists taking on LGBTQI clients, it is important to understand difference so that our clients, including any split off ego states, can be met with authentic non judgmental attunement. This learning lab will help us integrate this understanding into our LI work.

Sarah will elaborate on the latest evolution of Baseline, developed by Dr Anandi Janner Steffan, to enhance work with type 3 complex trauma clients. This session will look at three types of clients; constructing Timelines; working with fewer cues, speed of cues and use of voice; bouncing cues and network dynamics. Sarah will look at ways of ‘tweaking’ the process when working with clients who are habitually in hyper or hypo aroused states and will review the use of pre-verbal and pre-natal cues. Reference will be made to Polyvagal Theory and regulating the client to keep them within their ‘Window of Tolerance’.

This is taught in the new Level 1 LI Training

Open to any therapist trained to Level 1 and beyond.
