Course Structure

The Diploma of Soul Focused Psychotherapy consists of six modules. Each module may be studied separately and in no particular order:

Module 1 – Ego, Soul, Spirit Workshop

The Ego, Soul, Spirit Workshop is a 2-day weekend workshop, which presents a model that examines levels of consciousness experienced by humans, and the traps / pitfalls / breakthroughs that occur between levels of consciousness. Ego (also known as personality or lower self) operates in the levels of shame – the lowest vibration – through guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger and eventually pride – ego’s highest vibration.
Soul (higher self) operates in the levels of courage, neutral, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace and eventually enlightenment.
The workshop focuses more on the theory of the ego or personality levels of consciousness, with overview of the soul levels of consciousness.

Hours: 10

Module 2 – Lectures

Lecture 1 – Archetypes / Ego States / Roles We Play
  • Identifying archetypes: How to bring an archetype to the surface for expression
  • Interact, encourage listening, watch the archetype as the therapist
  • Become that which the archetype has “issue” with
Lecture 2 – Karma
  • The levels of karma operating
  • The nature of karma and how it is created
  • The role of karma in healing and / or suffering
Lecture 3 – Yin (Female) / Yang (Male)

Much of our behaviour can be understood as the interplay of these energies. From the nothing came the one, from the one came the two, from the two came the many. Looking deeply at the nature of Yin/Yang interactions within ourself first, then between two (or more) persons is vital for understanding how change can come about.

This lecture will investigate the difference between Yin and Yang operating principles and their qualities, characteristics, tendencies and operating patterns, and how and when to include this as an approach to therapy.

Lecture 4 – Possessions and Entities

Clients can arrive “affected” by something that feels “not me”. This can be:

  • Voices telling the client what to do or how to act
  • Behaviours not encountered before
  • Desires destructive to self or others

Types of possessions, entities and angels. How to bring them to the surface in a session:

  • Listen to them
  • Talk to them if appropriate
  • Remove them if appropriate

Hours: 20

Module 3 – Observation of Soul Focused Psychotherapist / Client Session
