Now in two formats for maximum accessibility!


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


Living Alive Phase I - Integrative
At The Haven, at home and online, over 8 months.


In Living Alive Phase I (Intensive OR Integrative) 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 has been a life-changing program for people over many years. Because it is not always easy to take 26 days away from home and work in order to have this opportunity, for the first time in 2015 we are offering the program in two formats:



Living Alive Phase I Intensive


Living Alive Phase I intensive is the format that has been offered at The Haven for more than 30 years. This Intensive format provides 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.

Living Alive Phase I Integrative


The new Integrative format is designed to maintain a high level of integrity to the core components of the Living Alive Phase I program while bringing in new ways of delivering the experience through virtual learning and community.


Living Alive Phase I Integrative provides and supports unique opportunities to apply, challenge and integrate the program content. It allows for a sustained learning period while minimizing the time away from home.


The eight-month Integrative format combines three on-site modules, 4 to 8 days in length, with directed, intentional at-home work both individually and in virtual groups, supported by regular teaching and processing via video conference.


The format will include an online community; this web-based location includes all program materials, schedule, and online materials, as well as a private discussion forum where you can interact with one another and with your instructors.


There will be three scheduled online group sessions per month, each of 90 minutes to 2 hours.
