Change the Body, Change the Mind
The Adult Attachment Repair Model (AARM) is an innovative therapy for addressing neural disregulation in the body. The AARM is based on seminal research and some of the latest discoveries in attachment theory, neurobiology and complex trauma. Through the integration of principles from Ego State Theory, Ethology, Consilience Theory and Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory the AARM creates an opening for releasing trauma and introducing vital sensory narratives in the body.
The Master Plan for Healing
According to Dr. Marion Solomon of the UCLA Neuropsych Institute and The LifeSpan Learning Institute, attachment is the master key for accessing all forms of psychopathology. When we are able to heal attachment wounds in the body, all other pathologies follow.
Peter has devoted the past sixteen of his forty years in practice to developing this profound healing modality and breakthrough contribution to mental health.
The Experiential Learning Environment
The AARM Training is an experiential learning process, both cognitive and emotional. The practicums and demonstrations in this training embody the true healing process accessing attachment traumas and unresolved grief in the body. It is recommended one have a therapeutic support system in place while pursuing this training.

This workshop is hosted by the Luminous Awareness Institute:
This is a Luminous sponsored workshop dedicated to creating healthy, loving, and lasting relationships. This workshop develops deep presence and somatic sensing in an entirely unique and profound way. Luminous is aware that working with our capacity for healthy attachment is key in our healing journey. Being able to have healthy bonds with another is fundamental to our happiness and essential to creating a more loving world.
We are hosting Peter Cummings as a teacher at Luminous because of the power of his unique approach and his in-depth background in attachment.
In this workshop, we will train therapists to elicit sensory data from the client that they will learn how to frame into a somatic narrative. The therapist helps the client establish and maintain a dual focus on their attachment process through the use of a transitional attachment object that gradually creates a scaffold of secure bonding experiences.
