Living Alive Phase I - Intensive
26 consecutive days at The Haven.


In Living Alive Phase I you will have rich opportunities to become aware of your patterns of behaviour and energy. You will develop insights and skills to help you transform the patterns you wish to, and release blockages in your energy.

  • Know yourself and your patterns of behavior more fully
  • Discover your own personal resources
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Make your fantasies and imagination work for you
  • Embrace the hidden aspects of who you are
  • Work in relationship with others to learn new information about yourself
  • Incorporate increased self-awareness, interpersonal skills and insights into your daily life


Living Alive Phase I Intensive is the format that has been offered at The Haven for more than 30 years, providing a unique opportunity for those who choose to devote 26 consecutive days to the experience of self-discovery with a face-to-face group that remains together for the whole time. Throughout the program, participants work individually and in both large and small groups. A range of experiences is offered, all of which are intended to maximize your potential for self-awareness, self-responsibility and healthy relating with others.
