A 1-Week Group Devoted to Deep Healing, Awakening, & Integration
December 8-14, 2013: Ashland, OR
ROBERT AUGUSTUS MASTERS, PhD
and DIANE BARDWELL MASTERS
Deeply effective work for those who are ready to fully face and work through whatever’s obstructing their well-being with a group of kindred spirits, in the beautiful town of Ashland, Oregon.
All kinds of issues and concerns — ranging from the deepest trauma to the seemingly trivial — will be addressed through a dynamic, creative mix of psychospiritual guidance, bodywork, emotional opening, spiritual disciplines, dreamwork, and group practices.
We’ll have plenty of time — a week! — for consistently deep work, plus time for spiritual deepening practices and sound healing with Diane (as well as time to enjoy Ashland’s considerable natural and cultural attractions).
The group will be small, being LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS ONLY, so that there will be ample time for everyone to receive in-depth attention.
LOCATION & TIME: Ashland, Oregon. Ashland is nestled in the far south of Oregon, a few minutes north of the California border. The group begins Sunday September 22nd at 2pm and ends Saturday September 28th at 2pm.
TUITION: US$1800. Nonrefundable deposit of US$500 required. Contact us to arrange payment. Full payment is due August 30, 2013.
PREREQUISITE: Previous in-person work with Robert & Diane, or with Robert in the form of at least one phone session (if you’ve had previous experience with psychotherapy or counseling), or sufficient work with a member of the core faculty of the Masters Center for Transformation. Please fill out our Client Application and read Experiencing the Work.
REQUIRED READING/LISTENING: Robert’s books Spiritual Bypassing and Transformation Through Intimacy, and audio program Knowing Your Shadow.

Robert Augustus Masters, PhD, is a relationship expert, a psychospiritual teacher, and a transformational guide, with a doctorate in Psychology. He is the cofounder, with his wife Diane, of the Masters Center for Transformation (MCT), a school featuring relationally-rooted psychospiritual work devoted to deep healing and fully embodied awakening. A substantial portion of his work involves training MCT practitioners. He is also the author of fourteen books, including Transformation Through Intimacy and Spiritual Bypassing. At essence his work is about becoming more intimate with all that we are, in the service of the deepest possible healing, awakening, and integration. He works side-by-side and in very close conjunction with Diane. His website is www.robertmasters.com.
Diane Bardwell Masters, Robert’s wife and spiritual partner, works with him in their sessions, groups, and trainings, contributing deeply to the work being done. She is a relationship expert, intuitive healer and Reiki master, and a songwriter, professional singer, and sound healer. She brings great heart and insight to the work she shares with Robert.

The structuring of our groups and trainings is not preset, but rather is allowed to spontaneously arise in fitting accord with the energies and needs of participants. This keeps the work — and teaching — fresh, vital, alert, immersed in a flow akin to that of good conversation between intimates, a flow that dynamically supports openness and breakthrough. The “container” for this work is perhaps best described by the classical Greek word temenos, meaning a sacred enclosed space, a vessel or environment in which transformation and optimal learning occur.
Our groups and trainings feature a dynamic mix of psychospiritual guidance, gestalt, bodywork, spiritual deepening, dreamwork, relational dynamics, and emotional opening, along with fitting instruction. All the work is intuitively done in the context of everyone’s innate wholeness. For a sense of what happens in such an environment, see Our Groupwork in Practice [please link to this]. In our trainings there is, of course, much more teaching, but this is not done not apart from all the personal work that is happening, arising instead in intimate conjunction with it, so as to optimize whatever learning is happening.
