A two-day workshop that is scheduled during a single weekend.
In thirteen hours of group sessions (of 8 to 12 people), we explore, through discussion, visualizations, and fantasies, our life’s perceptions and the effect they have had in our bodies. While Cherie works with each person, the group serves as a surrogate family and loving witnesses to the process. Without the judgments to which we have all become accustomed, we can truly experience who we really are, in an environment of safety and trust. The group meets from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on a Saturday and Sunday, with an hour break for lunch on each day.
The format is the same as a Weekend Workshop, condensed into seven hours over one day, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on a Saturday (with an hour break for lunch). One day workshops are usually scheduled with fewer participants to ensure enough time for individual work with each participant.
This training is open to anyone who works with people and/or desires to understand and accept human responses more readily. In addition to working with people directly, Cherie will also discuss the didactics of the process, teaching how the body relates and holds information and history, how to work with different personality structures, techniques for dissolving energy blockage and releasing energy, how to develop the intuitive process, and how to utilize the chakras for healing. Following each piece of work, Cherie discusses the major elements of transaction: “What I saw, what I did, what other directions I might have chosen.” Each student has an opportunity to practice the work in front of the group, receiving valuable feedback while connecting intuitively and energetically with the other members. Professional workshops meet one weekend a month for six months, for twelve hours over the weekend. The group meets from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays, with an hour break for lunch, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following Sunday.
Cherie will cover topics of many modalities, including Gestalt, bioenergetics, creative fantasy, Ericksonian hypnosis, eidetic imagery, etc.
Students must register to attend all 6 weekends and enrollment is closed after the first weekend. Payment is on a tuition basis and thus non-refundable.
Working one-on-one with individuals Novato, CA, Cherie creates an atmosphere of loving acceptance — what most of us missed as children — that allows the student to experience him/herself on the cellular level, promoting self-acceptance and discouraging self-judgment. “What do I sense in my body?” “What’s happening for me in my life?” and “What are my patterns of behavior?” These are the questions that are asked and answered on the path to inner truth.

6-Month Ongoing Group
The Ongoing Group is similar to the Weekend Training, but with the added benefits of the continuity that comes from engaging in the healing process on a monthly basis, and membership in a nurturing community of others who are committed to your personal development, as well as their own. As with the Weekend Training, each student has an opportunity to work with Cherie in front of the group, receiving valuable feedback while connecting intuitively and energetically with the other members. Students commit to attending this training once a month for six months. The Ongoing Group meets for ten hours over the weekend, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, with an hour break for lunch, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following Sunday.
