JAMP™ Transformational Coaching & The Four Archetypes "The Unseen Balance of The Opposites"

Richmond, B.C., Canada

October 19-21, 2023

About the conference

It is a beautiful yet frightening time in the world, as humanity is being asked to step into a global consciousness, which requires walls to come down. In reaction, fear, xenophobia, and racism are rising to high levels once again.

To balance that spiral of fear, many of us are being called to rise higher in our actions. A study of Archetypes is a perfect mirror of accountability for us to begin to rise and vibrate higher and see the stories we are holding onto that no longer serve us.

Nothing is as precious as your own power, it is time to call it back.

“The Unseen Balance of The Opposites” refers to the Archetypes and how they play in the world of form.

We will be exploring the Archetypes at the conference with some of the most innovative people in the field, this will help if you are feeling lost and searching for a sense of direction.

Come join us and learn about our revolutionary treatment, Jungian Advanced Motor Processing™ with Dr. Lahab Al-Samarrai.

As children, adolescents, and adults, many of us had traumatic experiences that have remained with us. These traumas are usually unique to every individual but as individuals we all have complexes. For example, a father complex and a mother complex are structures in the psyche that are there in part to protect and defend us, but these complexes are autonomous in nature. Thus, the complex can wreak havoc on us. trauma follows a path where an emotion such as fear, rage, or a stimulus, for example, a sound or image that is caused by the traumatic event is dissociated in the complexes, because the traumatic event is so chaotic and terrifying to our Psyche it must be dissociated.

Jungian Advanced Motor Processing™ helps reintegrate what was once raw and unintegrated, disturbing material brought on by the trauma. The integration process starts a deep change in the individual’s Psyche a process of profound integration, what Jung would call Individuation. Thus, the person will be able to be in their bodies and not dissociated from their bodies. Through the ability to be in one’s own body and not dissociated, the person can finally experience inner harmony and begin to heal.

This is for you if…

  • You would like to be able to understand the impacts of emotional trauma in your life and how to heal it in less time than traditional therapies.
  • You would like to be able to heal old patterns that keep you feeling stuck and hold you in the loop of confusion and pain.
  • You want to explore and learn the newest innovative techniques in transformational treatment for emotional trauma.
  • You want to learn how to recognize your Survival Archetypes and see where they are sabotaging you now.
  • You would like to learn how to identify your own specific Archetypes and how they move you in the world.
