Deepen Your TRE Knowledge, Develop Your Skills, and Finish Your Certification!

Don't miss this rare opportunity to learn from two pioneers in the field of health and wellness. Lynea Gillen, LPC, is world renowned as an award-winning author and founder of Yoga Calm for Children. In her search for new trauma healing tools, she found Dr Berceli and brought him and TRE to the Pacific Northwest seven years ago. She brings her extensive background in counseling, yoga/mindfulness, and child development to her work with TRE.

Supporting and supervising Lynea's debut as a trainer is Dr Berceli. This is also our seventh time hosting Dr Berceli for a Portland training event and we are honored to have him back. Together they will provide you with a rich training experience that features a practical approach that emphasizes experiential learning and lessons learned from years of experience with TRE and other therapeutic modalities.

This workshop is for those interested in becoming certified to teach individuals and groups in TRE. Module 2 is open only to participants who have completed the Module 1 workshop, who are registered in the TRE certification program, and who are currently engaged in supervision.
