Level 1 May 14-18
CTD 101 OVERVIEW ALL-CHAKRA TANTRA
In All-Chakra Tantra, you center yourself and orchestrate your chakras--inner power plants that generate security, sexuality, power, love, communication, vision, and feelings of oneness with everything and everyone. You learn a chant and a ritual that teaches you how to waken each chakra.
CTD 102 PERUSE PRIMAL THERAPY
Parents either meet need or fail to meet your needs for love as a child in a way you directly sense. If they truely love you, they hold you and encourage you to develop in your own direction at your own pace. Explore symbolic resonances of any love you lacked. Learn, for yourself and clients, how imprints rule your lives now, dictate the ecology of inner voices, dominate your bodies, project into dreams and direct spiritual aspirations. Probe imprints from conception, gestation, labor, delivery, childhood. Learn how to modify imprints to suit life today.
CTD 103 MEND MOM'S MISTAKES WHEN YOU MATE
One aspect of our personalities, the Inner Brat, developed from our emotional pain and from adopting our parents' worst traits. If Mom or the females that had charge of us when we were wee did not completely love and accept themselves and others, we copied this. She couldn't model self-love and overflowing love to others if her parents, in turn, didn't model it. When we're unloving and self-defeating, we express negative love, some of which we adopted from her. In this class we, then those we facilitate learn to stop getting even with Mom, to lovingly divorce her, rise above her negative example, realize she'll never meet our childish demand to love us with nothing asked in return. First we prosecute Mom: we emote anger for her example and for wrongs she did us. Then we put yourself in her place and get how she was molded into giving us negative attitudes by her parents' attitudes. The class ends when we and our partners experience deep compassion, forgiveness and love toward our mothers. Then, in homework, you guide others through this experience so they can love in the present instead of applying programs imprinted from interaction with females who had charge of them when they were young to their current loves.
CTD 104 DELETE DAD'S DEFECTS IN YOUR LOVELIFE
If Dad didn’t completely love and accept himself and others, you copied this. Divorce Dad, rise above his negativies, realize he’ll never love you unconditionally. You express anger, then you put yourself in his place and feel how his parents imprinted him to imprint you. Finally, you forgive him and tell him you love him. You practice taking other people through this process.

CTD 106 MANAGE IMAGOS
Imagos–inner voices--make people feel madly attracted certain other particular people. This imago (the inner self that says who to love) acts like an inner nurturer--Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister and Good Teacher combined. The imago makes people seek lovers like it, so she or he has what a person loved about caregivers. Partners you facilitate in class and in homework--Receivers--seek in lovers you represent what they loved about their caregivers. You also represent what they hated about parents. The lover you represent can hurt Receivers like their parents did. Help Receivers heal; model loving instead of hurting them. Help them experience their Inner Children, the voices of their emotional reality. Then start reprogramming Receivers’ Inner Childen for Interdependency rather than neurotic co-dependency. Learn how to constellate their Inner Parents as an antidote to co-dependence on their lovers.
