(texttrim This group (and the intake for it) was my first major interaction with the Crisses, and I came away very honored for having been part of the experience. This group was an incredibly engaging place where we felt safety for many members of our system to come out and express ourselves, as well as learn from both the wisdom of others and the experience of a very mature, mentorship-focused system. The Crisses did an incredible job advocating for everyone internal to the system, and going way far above and beyond the call of duty to actually invest in everyone and keep up with how theyre doing. As a system, they are incredibly generous and kind, and set a strong example for how to safely engage with a crazy, topsy-turvy world from a place of healthy functional plurality .(much more, follow link…)') (more)
I was a part of one of the trial groups, which was offered for free, and I've personally found I've gotten so much value and personal respect for the Crisses that I'll be going back and paying for it as if it was a "real" non-trial group session. In terms of group belonging, safety, and attachment, I found myself very much missing the group as we headed into the last two weeks. I simply didn't want it to end. This experience is worth every bit of what you put into it, and I'd reach out to the Crisses to start a conversation even if a group session and/or personal coaching is outside of your financial avenues. I firmly believe that everyone on the plurality spectrum would benefit from going through these groups, multiple times, to learn all of the layered lessons that lay the foundation for an incredibly healthy system. I now have the tools I need, far more than before, to really start making a healthy impact in my own life. Additionally, it's helped me provide support in my personal relationships and interactions with other systems as well.
Put simply -- you won't regret it.
