The Experiential Training is the Heart of EHI!
EHI Faculty, noted leaders in the field, emphasize the key ingredients of the E-H approach to model how students can create safe, collaborative and life-changing therapeutic encounters. They demonstrate how the therapeutic relationship, in and of itself is a vehicle for healing and change and how therapeutic “presence” cultivates sensitivity and appropriate responsiveness to clients emotions, relational patterns and inner worlds. These two essential principles: building the therapeutic relationship and working in the “here-and-now” are the foundational blocks of E-H therapy and EHI training.
The experiential intensive involves a combination of relationship-building, learning of theoretical foundations, and first-hand experiences wherein theory comes to life.

What About the Coronavirus?
Read our Coronavirus Caveat.
At this point, we anticipate holding our 2021 Experiential Retreat Training in-person at Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma, California, October 10 – 15. This is based on a best guess that it will be safe enough to meet in person by that time. The Coronavirus Caveat outlines 2021 contingencies and fee/costs refund/transferability policies.
