ReCreation of the Self (R-CS) 

M.E.T.A. Professional Skills Training Module 2:

Jon Eisman, Director, M.E.T.A. and Donna Roy, Certified Hakomi Trainer, LPC

The M.E.T.A. Professional Skills Training modules use a thematic approach to teach the essential theory and techniques of the Hakomi Method, The Re-Creation of the Self Model of Human Systems, integrated trauma interventions, and advanced maps for enhancing therapeutic understanding and strategy. Module Two presents The Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) Model of Human Systems, which offers a unique and fascinating, non-regressive approach to client change. Helping the client to recognize the limiting trance states they have embodied, it provides proven, specific techniques for allowing the client to shift immediately out of their limiting neural patterns and back into the already present, more expansive, vital and whole core self. Emphasis is on understanding the nuances of the map, mastering state-shifting skills, the embodiment of the therapist’s resources, and the assumption that ultimately the client will need to commit to his or her own Selfhood.

Developed over the past 30 years by world renowned therapist and teacher Jon Eisman, The Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) Model of Human Systems is both a comprehensive map of the inner Self, and a powerful, paradigm – challenging method for effecting client evolution. Grounded in mindfulness and somatic awareness, R-CS seeks not to resolve the content and history of client distress, but to shift immediately the state of consciousness in which the distress is held. A direct and experiential method, R-CS offers practioners of all sorts a dynamic, mind-opening opportunity to enhance the effectiveness of their present work.


• A cutting edge, clinically supported orientation towards client Wholeness and Resource, rather than pathology

• New, scientifically-based perspectives on the actual nature of client change

• An understanding of the neurological basis of identity and stuckness

• A comprehensive and practical map of the structures of the Self

• Powerful techniques to pursue the Ideal Self and the evolution of Selfhood

• Paradigm-altering skills for the immediate shifting of habitual trance states

• Facility with navigating issues of identification and disidentification

• Refined methods for inspiring commitment and empowerment

• New clarity on the diverse roles of the therapist

Interweaving neurobiology, clinical, mindfulness, somatic-experiential psychology, and transpersonal perspectives, The Re-Creation of the Self Intensive Training provides participants with theories and methods immediately applicable in both their professional and personal lives.

In R-CS, therapy is not seen as an exploration and gradual resolution of old wounds, but as a celebration of our innate resources and an opportunity to reembody our inviolable and already existing expansive, core sense of Self. When, in our development, this sense of Self was opposed, we accommodated the various obstacles and hurts we endured (as well as ultimately protecting our integrity) by fragmenting our consciousness into various trance-like, limbically-held self-states.

Long held as habitual neural networks in the brain body, these fragmented states of consciousness perpetuate both our illusory sense of current woundedness, and the limiting perceptions and behaviors that follow. R-CS seeks to recognize and disidentify immediately from these perceived selves; to recognize their actual underlying organic intent; and to support the client’s re-immersion in his or innate wholeness. R-CS does not focus on the content or historical origins of these states, but instead invites people to choose to shift – right now! – into their already present, more expansive, and preferred state of Selfhood.
