Evolutionary Playground: New Paths to Change for Uncertain Times, Summer 2024 @ REMOTE
Aug 15 @ 4:00 pm – Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm

This is an online course meeting from 4 – 7pm Pacific on six consecutive Thursdays: August 15, 22, 29, and September 5 and 12, then a one-week break, and then September 26, 2024

Would you be willing to live your life out to and past your edges?

Are you willing to end your addiction to adrenaline, fear and busy-ness?

Are you ready to move into resonance and ease as your foundation for being and doing?

For years our introductory seminar Essentials focused on the skills to shift old patterns easily with body intelligence tools. We’re now exploring the possibility of living primarily in an evolutionary cycle of presencing, connecting and playing through collaboration and harmony. Yes, it’s possible to live free of blame and criticism, even inside your own head. Evolutionary Playground will focus on co-creation and resonance to expand solutions and new ways of living in this time of accelerated change and uncertainty.

We are inventing our future now. Humans are grappling with how to ground themselves in this time of chaos and crumbling traditional structures. So having a felt sense of how to encounter the unknown and how to create new structures that are based in reality are becoming more and more vital right now. The act of welcoming opens the heart of invention—saying yes to what is happening, what you are feeling, what you notice. When you welcome and include, you create a context, an environment, where everything is fuel for aliveness and where each moment arises from turning toward, accepting, choosing and taking actions from your essence. Imagine a future where you welcome others whose essence likes to dance with yours, and your co-created dance inspires others around you to join your personal evolutionary movement.

In Evolutionary Playground, you’ll get out of the head-centric orientation that has skewed reality for several millennia, and into your whole-body creativity, where you can make your dreams real in your life. You’ll learn to use simple, powerful skills, backed by scientific research, that take you from “working on” your life to consciously creating your life. EP is partly an adult playground where flow replaces struggle, and partly an unfolding of the new paradigm of body intelligence and co-creation. Evolutionary Playground opens up a new path through deep, experiential learning and discovery. You author your own map to create true love for yourself and others that you embody in your moment-to-moment choices.

Access to Essentials Online will be included for all who enroll in Evolutionary Playground. Essentials Online is itself a complete seminar, including workbook and over twenty videos, guiding you through the foundational practices that Katie has been teaching for a couple of decades. 

Completing this course will meet the first requirement towards completion of the Big Leap Coach Certification. 

Watch this video to hear Katie answer questions about our Coaching Program:

 

Evolutionary Playground includes:

-Introduction to The Evolutionary Cycle of presence, connect, play
-Favoring the opening rather than banging on the closed door of the past and familiar patterns
-Creating and collaborating with ease
-Letting go of opposition and resistance and letting the universe move through you—creating your own magic and muchness
-Harnessing the power of authenticity to find and sound your unique tuning fork and experience as a unique and evolving work of art
-Generating flexibility and range of focus with attention and awareness: for example, easily being aware of your inner experience while able to giving full attention to a person while tracking the energy flow of a group
-Access to Essentials Online will be included at no extra cost for all who enroll in Evolutionary Playground

Participants will receive handouts and other materials, outlines for practices between Zoom sessions, and access to a private Mighty Networks group for continued exploration of the course content.

NOTE:  Completion of Evolutionary Playground or our previously taught Conscious Loving and Living Essentials is a prerequisite for our advanced training events.

  • What People Are Saying About Evolutionary Playground

    I have attended at least 5 Evolutionary Playgrounds! I love it so much, I keep coming back. Each time, I learn something new as Katie invents new ways to invite the growth of a nervous system that can handle more and more positive energy. At the last E.P. I attended, I discovered I had been fainting through life. I had been fainting that I faint. I knew that I had a tendency to run when I was scared. And discovering that I energetically faint when I am scared has given me a sense of waking up. Since then, I have been more active in my community and in my life!”
    -Crystal Dawn

    If you’re not willing to experience BIG, POSITIVE shifts in your life, then this is definitely not for you! Immersing  myself with the tools learned here has literally shifted my perspective of the world. My reward is to be living and creating my life to the fullest, most enjoyable experience possible. I’m learning to expand my ability to give and receive love and am now nourishing myself in a ways that are struggle free. When I first came across this opportunity, I felt scared and unsure and did it anyway.  Now after attending 3 Evolutionary Playgrounds (I’ve  experienced each training uniquely) I can undoubtedly say that choosing EP is the single best decision I have made in service of myself. Katie is pure genius,  modeling living in integrity and wholeness. Come and learn for yourself.

    Evolutionary Playground offers cutting-edge techniques with the latest tools I can use with my clients. It builds on essential basics for personal transformation based on amazing and ongoing discoveries in human consciousness from my favorite masters in awareness, Gay and Katie Hendricks. It is ideal for beginners and experienced journeyers alike! I look forward to coming back again-and-again and playing with deeply hearing what’s emerging.

    This Program has been revolutionary in my personal and professional life.  I am authoring my life through embodied wisdom.  I am creating out of greater stability, ease and generosity.  I am in a direct and satisfying relationship with everyone and everything in my life.  I feel I’m learning the doctorate level of creative mastery. Quite pleasantly, with the brilliant tools of Katie and Gay Hendricks I’m accomplishing more in my work and personal life through discovery and joyful play than I ever did with hard work. I thank my lucky stars to have been introduced to their Evolutionary Playground!

  • What if love and connection could be easy?
  • What if creativity and co-creativity could replace control and adrenaline dramas?
  • What if your body wisdom, the way you breathe, move and notice, was the quickest path to relationship fulfillment?

If these questions perk up your curiosity, you might be ready to dive into this somatic approach to relating. In the thirty years since Conscious Loving became a bestseller, we have continued to evolve the only body-centered approach to relationships in the field. We have worked with thousands of partners and professionals around the world to continue developing a new paradigm of relating that is based in uncovering, sharing and celebrating our essential selves.

Most people long for the experience of being themselves in the full presence of another loving person. They imagine being deeply seen and appreciated while co-creating a life of fulfillment together. And many people don’t realize that popping out of old relationship myths and getting real can be as easy as breathing and moving in new ways.

This training is designed to equip you with the essential relationship-building skills we’ve developed during the past forty years. Whether you use these skills personally or professionally, you’ll find that you get stuck less often, shift more quickly, and spend more of your time living the relationship life you design by choice.

The Conscious Loving Advanced Training is highly experiential and life-changing for the participants. It was created for those individuals, couples and professionals dedicated to inspiring conscious relationships at home and in the workplace. Some of the concepts and techniques covered:

  • How to facilitate the five essential skills of conscious relationship: Commitment, authenticity, healthy response-ability, appreciation and creativity
  • How to let relating and transformation be easy
  • How to shift from working on to shifting and discovering
  • How to use a reliable road map to relationship fulfillment
  • How to recognize and expand the steps in the Relationship Dance of unity and individual creative fulfillment
  • How to facilitate breakthroughs in long-standing impasses
  • How to use breath, movement and body-centered techniques to speed up problem-resolution
  • How to resolve sex and money issues in close relationships.

Participants will be given a comprehensive manual during the course and a set of videos and workbook to facilitate Conscious Loving workshops with singles, partners and groups.

Prerequisite:

Completion of Evolutionary Playground: New Paths to Change for Uncertain Times or our previously taught Conscious Loving and Living Essentials: The 3-Day Seminar is a prerequisite for our advanced training events.

How The Hendricks’ Work Is Different From Other Approaches to Coaching and Transformation

1) We emphasize personal integrity in all of the techniques that we teach. Whether at home or in business, we help partners learn to tell the truth to each other. When a person is hiding some truth, he or she will tend to complain about a relationship issue. Misunderstandings of responsibility fuel much relationship conflict. We help each partner in a relationship take full responsibility for any issue, especially if the issue looks like it belongs only to one person.

2) We believe that the central issue people face is expanding their capacity to give and receive love and to handle greater levels of unity and intimacy in their relationships and lives.

3) We balance cognitive techniques with powerful body-centered techniques that draw on the organic wisdom of the body. For example, in a couple’s coaching session or a corporate consultation, we make use of movement, conscious breathing and other tools that focus people on the natural healing capacity of their body processes. We have developed a transformational model that provides a flexible, yet comprehensive structure based in whole-body learning and collaboration.

4) We are very interested in concepts and techniques that emphasize unity instead of difference. Many currently popular approaches focus on the differences between people. While this may be useful at a certain point in evolution, we are very interested in laying the groundwork for the next stage of evolution, which we believe involves the fundamental unity at the base of all creation, people included. To this end, our techniques are focused on helping people reveal their own essence–who they really are at the spiritual depths of themselves–and to perceive the essences of other people.

5) We focus on specific actions over which you have control. Examples: You can’t control whether someone likes you, but you can control whether you pick up the phone and call them to talk to them about your feelings. You can’t control when you’re going to feel scared or anxious, but you can control whether you take a slow, deep breath or use Fear Melters®.

6) We are interested in ongoing innovation. We encourage our students and coaches to incorporate our materials freely and to continue to create dynamic applications that contribute to their own growth and professional development.

7) We don’t belong to traditional coaching organizations, primarily because their mind-centric approaches are too intellectual to reach the deeper level we’re interested in exploring through our body-mind work. In addition, we’ve had experience with numerous bureaucracies and have found them all too limiting.

I just spent a day going through the videos and manual of your Essentials Online. It is terrific! It’s a concentrated version of many trainings with gaps edited out. So I could review the best stuff easily. I was entertained by watching you, Kathlyn, and watching everyone else we knew from the last few years of trainings. And where audio might be difficult to understand there are captions so everything is clear. This is a BIG help to me in planning my own courses. The big flow chart, the way you set up participants for the day–it’s all there organized for us. There you are holding our hand as we go forward. I feel confident.
Many thanks, Kathlyn. Recommended to all!
