About

The chinese pictogram for 'crisis' combines the figures for 'danger' and 'opportunity'. Most of my clients are feeling better about what they are doing in the world, since the start of Covid. We are all on our unique journeys. We are all... to quote Charles Eisenstein in a "rehab program from normality". My clients are not blamers and willing to take responsibility for writing the story of their lives. Covid is personal growth on steroids. A lot of deep and unconscious issues are surfacing for people. I am a depth psychologist. I am a mentor. I've been in practice for 35 years. I orient towards the healing power of pleasure.
I love working with couples and believe that being in relationship is one of the best ways to grow and awaken. With couples, I prefer to work with my life and business partner, Amelia Perkins. As practitioners of Tantra, we focus on pleasure, presence, intimacy, connectedness, and mentoring people towards being the best agent of their own transformation.
I see clients whose needs fit my style, techniques and maps for encouraging transformation of mindset and consciousness. I am a trauma expert and know that "the drama of trauma" consists of embodied, breathing, and neural patterns that cannot be changed by talking alone. I provide experiences and resources for greater resilience, coherence and presence.

Erik Muten's Groups

Tantra and Tenderness

This group, which is lead by Erik Muten & Amelia Perkins, meets monthly to explore core principles of Tantra and combines experiential exercises with didactics. Some of the principles of Tantra are: the healing power of pleasure and everything is an experiment. We tend to focus on the "inner marriage" of masculine and feminine principles in all of us. Dates of Tantra & Tenderness are October 17th, November 28th, and December 19th.

Situation Lab: Neutralizing Psychological Attacks

In our life, we will encounter people who want to intimidate, blame & shame, or coerce us into something that is against our self-interest. There are effective counters to neutralize these psychological attacks. In this workshop-laboratory, we use structures from martial arts and role play to investigate our options for holding our ground in emotionally violent or manipulative situations. This is a wonderful opportunity to work on a situation where you feel disempowered. This group is facilitated by Erik Muten & Michael Burkhart. Upcoming dates: November 7 and December 12, 2018.
