Opening my eyes I felt awed to have relived and healed an important piece of my souls journey. My husband and I contemplated how some 13 years ago, my own career as a teacher and counselor had begun with teaching childbirth education, the same thread drawing me to this life?s work. By the next day, the class at my church was filling and a few days later was full. The class was a great success and I was aware as I taught it of feeling freer within myself to speak and to engage in the important work of helping women heal their own similar past life traumas for themselves and for all women. Only then can we find deep connection with ourselves and with the feminine divine. My work continues to grow and unfold.

He is certified by Helen Palm to teach Ennegram and has also been a faculty member in the graduate Counselling Programs at Lesley University and Northeastern University. While Dr. Hahn's strong foundation and significant experience in traditional psychology has served his clients well, he has been untiring in his effort to better understand what is going on for people so that he could better help them live more contented and healthier lives. This understanding, as well as certain experiences, which he could not fully comprehend within the confines of traditional Western paradigms, led him on a search for answers that opened him to the world Buddhist and Easter Psychology; Mystery Training and depth, Archtypal and Spiritual Psychology. During this period, Thich Nhat Hahn, Brugh Joy, Dick Olney, Helen Palmer, Barbara Hastings, and Claudio Narajo were particularly infludential and powerful teachers for him. In 1997, after several years of witnessthing the power of the work, Dr. Hahn developed the Life Centered Therapy Training Program for those who want to faciliate and/ or teach this process. Today, Dr. Hahn has a private practice in Waltham, MA; speakes, teaches and leads training and healing groups internationally; and continues his effort to better understand what is going on for people so that he can better help them live more contented and healthier lives.
