The Inner Art of Functional Integration® Lessons : Small Group Mentoring

Functional Integration lessons are a sophisticated art form that requires a high degree of sensory acuity and the unusual ability to join ourselves with another. To my mind, it has an ‘outer’ aspect and an ‘inner’ aspect. The outer aspect is concerned with how a lesson is composed and adapted, which functions are explicated, and how developmental and neurological dynamics may be involved. The inner aspect of Functional Integration lessons is concerned with the ways we use our own thoughts, images, intentions, organization, and dialogical understanding to communicate biologically potent information to another person’s nervous system. In order to achieve the “magic” of Functional Integration, I believe we must engage fully with this inner, or internal aspect. In this unique mentoring situation, we will concentrate on the inner art of Functional Integration; the subtle, in-the-moment, internal and organizational qualities that can be the difference that makes the difference, and renders FI® lessons truly transformative. You will receive direct feedback which will be personal, rich, precise, consequential and compassionate.
