Announcing the Compassionate Inquiry Online Training

I’m excited to announce a new online course that has been years in the making, Compassionate Inquiry. Created with the collaboration of N.D. and international yoga teacher Sat Dharam Kaur.

Compassionate Inquiry is an in depth teaching and distillation of the approach I have developed to working with human beings beset by personal issues, health problems that need gently guided exploration, mental health challenges, addictions, relationship difficulties and, above all, an unhealthy relationship to their own selves.

Using Compassionate Inquiry, you will be able to unveil the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real messages in clients that their words both express and conceal.

Therapists and health professionals are invited to participate in this 240 hour, year-long, graduate level online training for personal and professional development. You will receive bi-weekly facilitated training, weekly practice sessions and a comprehensive assessment process, with access to certification at the end of the course.

Start dates are January 14, 2019; April 18, 2019; or August 12, 2019. Registration deadline is December 23, 2018.

For more information, please visit the Compassionate Inquiry website.

  1. Dear Dr. Gabor.
    I’ve missed the deadline, and yet, I really really need to work and learn with you, on this seemingly brilliant course.
    I’m a mental health advocate. I work with people who struggle with bipolar, borderline, depression, ptsd, adhd and anxiety disorders.
    Pls, is there any way at all I could still register? I care deeply about what I do, knowing the physical is manifested by the mental and emotional parts of ourselves.
    I’m in the process of building a retreat in Portugal to give people space for silence, meditation, and begin healing.
    You and what you’re offering I know, can and will greatly positively affect these people’s lives.
    Please let me know whether I have any chance of registering for your course. Please.
    With kind regards
    Deborah Mann

    Stephanie or Dr Mate,

    Sheila O’Malley here from Dublin Ireland. I would love to do the Jan 14course but I only heard about it very recently. Is there any way you could include me for the January course. I work in the corporate area and feel this would be of huge benefit?

    Fingers crossed until I hear from you,

    Warmest wishes,

    Sheila OMalley

  3. Stephanie or Dr Mate,

    I had enquired just before the end of the year as an alternative,the new course you will have for personal growth, I would appreciate if you could advise approximately when you will know dates it’s likely to run? This is because I don’t have time for my 1:1 clients due to corporate talks/courses so wonder if that may be a better fit for me, but keen to have dates as work gets busier as Year kicks in!

  4. Thank you for offering this to us. As you know so many need this understanding and work. I support families touched by Autism helping them with nutrition and natural lifestyle choices to empower the mother to put herself first heal herself and thus release and open up healing for her children and break the cycle of unaware parenting and a toxic lifestyle. I would love to bring your work to my families. I often work for free or donation with some paying clients. I am in service as when my boys where born with disabilities and Autism and I had a lonely hard road to recover then through diet and most importantly healing myself and starting the journey of self love. I had no one supporting me, so I try to support as many families as I can. I wanted to ask if you take scholarships to your course starting in April? It could help me and all my community and my vision of working with 1000 families and beyond. Thank you for your consideration on this. If I had the money I would invest as I believe in your work.

  5. Hello,
    I hope and pray that one day this approach will be available to those outside of “professional realm” I am and have been Very interested in self help and self growth. I have been on a healing journey for many many years and I have unearthed much trauma both in therapy and by myself. Still on the journey. I’ve listened to many of Dr Mate’s videos and I resonate so much with his approach.
    Thank you,

  6. I’m so happy i found you in my life.i listen to you everyday.inspired and completely amazed at your clarity and sharing.i m from India.I have an addiction issue.addiction of people pleasing and controlling how they see me.i really want yo study your work.i have done essence training of five years.A.H.almaas and FaisalMuqqadams work.therapy work of osho.worked as a keinisiologist.years of searching.

  7. I am interested in taking the compassionate inquiry course. I am a recovery Coach and have clients all over the world and this would be great course. I also have been through workshop with Gabor on Tramna before. I also have a book coming out and have permission to use some his Gabor quotes.

  8. I would like to hear your advice on iatrogenic addiction. Many of us, women especially, were given benzodiazopines as “medicine”and now it will disable me for years to recover my Gaba receptors. I have done great things with meditation and community. I was severely abused and have MTHFR which you may not believe in (and I know changes when I experience love and support; I collect articles on rapid DNA change.) I am NOT an abuser and I AM addicted and I am angry about it all. I am developing a program to help myself and others deal with the detox and fear how difficult this will all be. I choose to heal. Can you point me in a direction? I am seeking funding too.

    Dr Mate, I have been following along with your insightful YouTube talks and interviews for about a year now. I gain a lot of learning from these discourses. This has simultaneously been the worst year for my PTSD and depression since my child died at 3 and a half 13 years ago this month.
    My question is this, how does someone get this kind of help without financial means, without insurance in an attempt to recapture not only myself, my health, my ability to function, but even more importantly, keep from continuing down this path in the interest of my 10 and 12 year old daughters?
    I can already see some of the generational traumas triggers from my own childhood, but I am also witnessing how my own stresses of the past and especially the grief and fears throughout pregnancy, early childhood, the abrupt departure of my ex, the crazy hours I had to spend working just to keep our roof over our heads after that when the girls were just entering headstart, has already left their own traumatic marks on my girls!
    I wish there were resources for us underinsured/uninsured, hardworking yet desperately income poor individuals.
    Are there any online support or group therapy sessions free or very very low cost?
    Are there any guided videos, anything at all? I feel I have reached the limit of my ability to “do the work” on my own.
    Thank you. Thank you for your compassionate work. Thank you for sharing your own journey so deeply and frankly.

    Is this course a self healing course. I feel people are waking up from social conditioning, brain washing really, is this course a way to heal from it, insane beliefs, patterns’, generational conditioning. Does this course connect people with soul. Let me know what this course is about, helpful with.

    Hi, I just received this. I am a craniosacral therapist. I want to take my skills and understanding of the body to body mind connection onto an online platform. Is there anyway I can find out more about the current process to get into this. Sent May 11th 2020

  12. Matteo Dossena

    Hi, great work. Signed up for your webinar at MAPS Canada, looking forward to that. Are you going to continue your training program? Not a professional, but trying to shift career. I think could be useful anyway.

  13. Hi, first of all, I want to thank you, Dr. Gabor, for all the knowledge you’ve endowed us with, especially online (YT) free lectures and through your books. I stumbled across your YT videos, perhaps not by accident, but due to soul searching since 2018. I am not a therapist or psychologist, or other ‘ist’ of some sort, rather I’m just someone who is keen to learn more in such an interesting human subject. I started reading your book ‘In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts’ two days ago. Will make every effort to get your other books.

    Thanks for enlightening us, the laymen, with your beautiful and amazing mind, on such intricate issues.

    Thank you so much from Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands. Stay blessed.

  14. I love Dr.Gabor Maté. I have been on a soul search journey for almost all my life. Hard work, but worth it! Searching has made me discover beautiful souls, like dr.Maté, my soul, human soul. His kindness in listening and seeing hurt/traumatised people is a healing in it self. It is an act of love. Wish our paths could cross only for a hug. Much love,

  15. Music is a source
    of beauty and meaning
    outside myself
    that I can claim
    as my own
    without exploring how,
    in my life,
    I keep from directly experiencing
    those qualities.

    (from In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts p 242)
    Sounded poetic to me, so here it is as a poem.

  16. Bettina Bouskila

    Since hearing you on a podcast years ago you’ve always been a source of grounding and inspiration for me. I would love to take this course with you if it’s ever offered again!

  17. Hi – I am from NZ and a Bodytalk practitioner/ often clients feel safe to reveal traumas of the past and I am at times not feeling qualified to discuss this future with them- is the course still running ?
    Thank u
    Ash bailey
