This is a group for anyone ages 23 and older who are interested in in-person help and instruction on how to pursue a spiritual path towards awakening as Awareness. The group meets monthly, on the first Wednesday of each month, to meditate together and begin to create a safe community space to provide supportive company on the spiritual path.
In each session, we will begin with a meditation of about 20 minutes. If anyone is new to meditation, a brief introduction will be offered. Following meditation, group members are free to describe their current spiritual path, and ask any questions they have about how to progress towards spiritual awakening. Note that this is not a psychological process group, during which to air issues and get psychological feedback; it is a group about spiritual awakening and enlightenment.
The facilitator, Jonathan Labman, LPC has been leading spiritual awakening groups for 22 years and is experienced in creating a safe and positive community environment. The normal confidentiality and boundary rules of therapy groups provide a safe container for this experience.
Jonathan Labman is a Licensed Professional Counselor in eastern Pennsylvania who has been practicing for 24 years. His clientele is an eclectic group of people who are in recovery from trauma, addiction, and other complex issues. He will work with you on all aspects of human life: physical, mental, emotional, psychological and spiritual.
Jonathan will help you to learn how to be an effective human being. He will teach you to determine if the thoughts you're using to make decisions are based in truth or in false assumptions. He will help you to face and identify feelings (including flashbacks) and trace where they come from, to determine if they're coming from truthful sources and are therefore useful for insight and action.
Clients are from all walks of life, ages 21 to 90. Some have never had therapy, others didn't feel it worked, and some have explored psychological healing but don't feel complete or whole yet. For those of you interested interested in spiritual awakening and enlightenment as an important dimension of recovery, Jonathan can guide you there too.
Jonathan knows how to work with your pain and suffering with deep spiritual and psychological understanding. He applies 54 years of personal and professional exploration to create very interactive sessions for you. He will 'mirror' you to yourself and reduce what seem like 'complex issues' to the very simple habit patterns (of thought, action, feeling, spirituality, and creativity) that are actually in your way, so they can be dissolved.
You can meet Jonathan in his consulting office in Holicong, Pennsylvania (near Doylestown) and/or by videoconference through an encrypted and HIPAA-compliant platform for therapy in Pennsylvania.
