Coming September 2021!
Check back here or on my Facebook page for the launching of these informative offerings (a 4-module Program as well as stand alone free and paid seminars).
The 4-Module program … Honing Your Sword.
This signature program guides participants to greater self-awareness and insight of how unconscious material influences their lives. The material is based upon what I feel to be the cornerstones of personal growth. You’ll gain more clarity of self and intentions, acting and making decisions more aligned with your True Authentic Self. Content is through the lens of Depth Psychology – one that addresses and honours soul/psyche, unconscious or Shadow material, creativity, curiosity, inner wisdom and one’s personal journey. Each module builds upon and connects concepts, material and insights.
In this program you will
- Shift dysfunctional patterns and dynamics
- Gain insights into what underlies your behavior
- Let go of roles, patterns that no longer serve you
- Gain skills in how to manage negative cognitions
- Deepen your connection with Self/inner world
- Handle bothersome, triggering, stressful/anxious situations
- Better grasp psychological concepts and how they show up in daily life: Self, Shadow, projection, Ego, individuation
You will feel: more content (less bothered), more in the flow, more confident in who you really are, and more accepting/compassionate of self and other. Perhaps even, more at peace!
What participants are saying:
“Honing Your Sword is insightful and compelling. The lessons were clear, with a good balance of theory, examples and moments of personal reflection and Diane’s style is open and approachable. It’s a great journey of self-discovery and healing for those wanting to clear out their old, and maybe recent, ‘baggage.’”
“I highly recommend doing this course if one is ready to go deeper and is prepared to do the work in order to understand the unconscious “drivers” that rob one of living fully and in alignment with that question, “Who am I?”
Format: It’s like your own 2-3 day workshop! (See full topic outline here.)

Module 1: Introduction to Self – Connecting with Self FREE!
This presentation introduces participants to the foundational concepts for the course. Using a Jungian or Depth Psychology perspective, you’ll learn about parts of the conscious and unconscious, how they were formed and the significance of its content in your life. Most importantly, you’ll learn how Self reveals itself and thus, how to better relate and connect with your inner truths.
Lesson 1: Introduction to Self
Lesson 2: The Divided Self
Lesson 3: Our Inner Partners
Lesson 4: How Self Speaks
Lesson 5: Watch Your Words!
Lesson 6: Dreams
Lesson 7: The Body Talks
Lesson 8: Projection
Lesson 9: Fate & Concluding Thoughts
Module 2: Working with Shadow Projection
This talk takes an in-depth look at the Shadow – focusing on how to identify when shadow material is ‘up’ and what do to about it. Here we will learn about the ever-so important process of projection. You’ll learn how to better handle ‘button-pushing’, triggering, and situations where you and/or others’ reactions “don’t fit the crime.”
Module 3: Revisiting Childhood – Our Haunting Wounds
You’ll explore the origins of your complexes, the negative self-talk and the patterns, roles and beliefs that no longer serve you. Deepen into who you truly are by claiming what you now believe – rewiring your pathways with the truth! What needs to be let go of? What gets in the way? Why is changing our narrative so difficult?
Module 4: The Individuating Self
The concept of Jung’s individuation will be explored; it’s function and how specifically it is showing up for you. You’ll reflect upon insights gained in the previous sessions, redefining who you are and what you are being asked to do to live more aligned with your True Self. You’ll make a specific plan on how to honour Self (these insights) – opening to new, facing fears, removing blocks, asserting and setting boundaries with self and with others.
COST: $199 (September launch $179)
