I was privileged to experience Merle’s latest workshop intensive and enjoyed both immediate and profound effects.

Merle has a gift for ‘conscious and emotional intuition’ which allows him to see those things that we refuse to see buried inside of us.

I had been caring an ‘emotional block’ inside my inner child for over 57 years regarding issues around boundaries with women and authority figures in my life. Within two days Merle allowed me to see my challenge and help me learn how to feel the boundaries of this block and learn to not only self-correct myself, but to also learn to stand in my power with confidence by using the word No and No More.

I am already experiencing the effects of reclaiming my space, my power, and defining where I stop and others energetic field begins.

I highly encourage anyone facing emotional, psychological,Spiritual, or karmic blocks to consider a ‘lovingly powerful way out’ through Merle’s workshop intensive.

I attended Merle Yost’s workshop on therapeutic boundaries. As a therapist I was searching for a way to keep my own energies after a work day and not need two hours of nap time… What I experienced was so much more! Merle took us through basic information about the group and what to expect. Then we got down to work. The experience exceeded all of my expectations. I entered the group a spiritually hidden guy and finished on a whole new adventure. Expect the workshop to be part instruction on needed skills for therapy, and more than part kind, safe, personal therapy. If you want to learn why Merle thinks this kind of work is fun, and not stressful, sign up!!!!

The boundaries workshop was nothing short of transformative for me. The exercises Merle facilitated gave me a very clear experience of what my own energy is and how I experience it in relationship to others. Merle has a particular gift of being highly attuned and perceptive during the exercises, which was so validating and brought a deeper knowledge and trust in myself.

I now have newfound clarity around how I can relate to others in a way where I feel more safe and protected and don’t take on their energy. I also came away from the workshop with a much keener awareness of the sensations and feelings in my body, and a deeper experience of my spirituality. I highly recommend his workshop!

Merle Yost’s skillful and sensitive teaching provides important, and usually neglected, information about boundaries. Over time, I have realized that helping clients (and myself) actually understand boundaries is the most basic element of our work in therapy. I particularly liked Merle’s experiential focus. We learn instantly when we experience something, in our own bodies, in the moment. His Gestalt approach was integrated into my own work with clients the very next day. Colleagues who have taken the course have been 100% glad they did, including myself.
