The International Association for Generative Change is dedicated to promoting Generative Change globally in many different ways. We offer certification, membership, learning experiences and a community to those professionals who are interested in creating a world to which we all want to belong. Generative Change (GC) means creating something beyond what has yet existed, either in one's personal or professional life. To generate means to create something new. Thus, the core focus in generative change is creativity: How do you create a successful and meaningful work life? How do you create great personal relationships? How do you develop a great relationship with your self, your body, your past, your future, your wounds and your gifts?

The Hero’s Journey:
More than ever, the worlds needs passionate, creative people and communiites. This workshop explores how to live in such a way, based on the ground-breaking Hero’s Journey work developed by Joseph Campbell. In this journey, a person senses and acts on a life calling, using this deep connection to create an extraordinary path through the world. Such a life requires full commitment and surrender to life, as well as intensive self-development. The training invites each participant to make such a commitment, and explores the generative methods by which life dreams can become real.
The structure of the course follows 8 steps of the Hero’s Journey:
The general steps of the journey will be explored in a series of intensive exercises, demonstrations, and group processes designed to awaken your consciousness to experience more love, exceptional creativity, and positive living. You will be both challenged and supported in this intensive process, and also receive guidance in how to coach others on such journeys.
Generative Psychotherapy can be a very effective process in working with such individuals. Developed by Dr. Gilligan over his 40 years of experience in psychotherapy, Generative Psychotherapy teaches psychotherapists how use generative change principles within a therapeutic process. Special attention is given to: how to develop a generative relationship container to do intense transformational and healing work; how to establish and maintain positive resources; how to transform negative symptoms into positive resources; and how to replace the “negative trance” of a symptom into the “positive trance” of a creative state.
These 4-day personal development courses are held in Dr. Gilligan’s office in Encinitas California. Limited to 9 people, they are intimate, transformational events. Each person has an opportunity to do a 2-3 hour piece of core work directly with Dr. Gilligan in the middle of the group. In addition, Dr. Gilligan offers mini-talks and group trance and hypnotic experiences. The nature of the core work is both archetypal and personal, expressing both the unique experience of a given person but also a deeper archetypal, collective experience of being human. This double level of experience opens the creative unconscious at its best, and an interesting sort of quantum field opens within the group. Some really amazing changes happen in these meetings.
