The Atlantis model emphasizes GIM as a music-centered psychotherapy for individuals and groups.  We teach a system that utilizes guiding skills in combination with the use of music as one's co-therapist to support depth work with clients.  Our trainings are a blend of opportunities for interactive lectures, depth experience, community building and expression of one's potential to become grounded in the transpersonal aspects of life.

Atlantis Institute offers a post-graduate supervisor-in-training week-end course to develop the skill set for becoming a supervisor.  FAMIs from other programs are welcome.
