Online Processing Group [Shifting the Power]

Online Processing Group for Shifting the Power Banner with Anneke Lucas and Christina Merkley on her drawing tablet working on a visual map. Against a field of wildflower, poppies and purple strife.

Survivors of some of the deepest Darkness on our planet are courageously sharing their stories, and even more amazingly, their healing journeys into the Light. In doing so, they are Wayshowers and Teachers, and inspirational examples to all of humanity.

Anneke Lucas is one of these remarkable Survivors and Teachers. Her experiences as a child slave to an elite pedophilic network have placed her adult life entirely in the context of healing from trauma.

colorful wildflower line art with poppies, daisies and cornflowersAfter more than 30 years of personal practice exploring a combination of modalities to heal her own trauma; and sharing her healing with traumatized populations including fellow Survivors, she developed The Unconditional Model – a mindfulness modality with a particular focus on Providers, to optimize one’s ability to hold space.

In this Online Processing Group, Anneke Lucas, together with Christina Merkley (pioneering Visual Coach and creator of The SHIFT-IT Visual Coaching System) guide you to clearly and compassionately do your inner work during these times of great change.

Processing ourselves, our trauma, family dynamics, child-rearing practices, and issues resulting from business, academic, economic and political structures.


This Online Processing Group offers The Unconditional Model, with its suite of tools, within a supportive and informed community.

In order to:

  • become more conscious;
  • break taboos around trauma;
  • support healing with self-love and compassion; and,
  • extend that awareness to aid in the reduction of trauma in others and in the world at large.


This Online Processing Group offers live coaching by Anneke and Christina.

Whether you volunteer to process directly, or parallel process by holding space, you will gain new awareness and tools for your healing process, which translates into your increased ability to support others.

This group is for anyone personally interested.

For Providers (therapists, coaches, teachers, healthcare providers, and the like) who wish to continue their personal work, and their development in The Unconditional Model, in order to be of greater assistance to their clients.

Also for Survivors and anyone recovering from trauma, and authoritarian and narcissistic abuse (in its many forms and spectrums).

For anyone who may not be able to afford private coaching at this time yet wishes to have access to Anneke and Christina’s skills and expertise, and this healing community.

This program is a companion to Anneke’s and Christina’s Shifting the Power course, although it is not a prerequisite to participate in this group. However, those who have taken the course will have greater awareness and experience with The Unconditional Model, and its concepts and tools, than those who have not.

Over time, and with sincere personal application, all will have greater understanding and fluency in this innovative depth work.

Each of the 10 Online Processing Sessions is co-created in an emergent style. Each webinar begins with a short meditation, then proceeds to spontaneous processing with volunteers.

Over the course of the series, there will be many opportunities for live, spontaneous processing, for those who wish to do so. Powerful “parallel processing” also happens, as participants witness and apply insights and realizations to their own circumstances.

All sessions are recorded and only shared with fellow members. They are viewable online and are not downloadable. A private online forum is also part of our infrastructure, for community interaction between sessions.


Anneke and Christina hold specific concepts regarding power dynamics and use specific inner work tools.

Some of these concepts and processing tools have been created individually, and some have been developed jointly. All of them are in service of Anneke’s Unconditional Model, and demonstrate its principles in action.

Projecting Down: identifying and owning our ‘dark projections’, where we project our negative qualities onto others.

Parental Self: connecting and receiving direct support from the archetypical essence of healthy parenting.

Parts Work: connecting with and soothing our inner Parts that may seem to have conflicting goals yet acknowledge their attempts to protect our system and help us survive.

Exiles: accessing and comforting the raw emotions of our sacred inner children.

Orphan Rescues: energetically rescuing and integrating our Past Selves from single incident or complex trauma.

Future Self: connecting and practically benefiting from the greater perspective and compassion of our Future Selves.

Inner Alignment: mediating our internal resistance to our mission, purpose and callings.

Self Inquiry: courageously welcoming what is, to assist in untangling and freeing the individual, group and collective Consciousness.

A Note About Multi-Sensory Processing:
Christina’s expertise in Visual Thinking adds a multi-sensory approach to our depth work. All of the processing methods have optional visual components, for those who are aided by processing visually.

Anneke has recently written a memoir called Quest for Love. In it she invites the reader into the perspective of herself as a young girl living in Belgium, sharing the events of one year of her life, in an elite sex trafficking network. The voice of her Child Self is supported by the vocabulary and understanding of her Adult Self.

It is recommended, if possible, to read this book in preparation. Links to the book are here.

Anneke has been granting interviews since the book was published. Viewing some of them may assist your understanding of her journey and mission. These Videos can be found here.

Additionally, this Processing Group is a companion to Shifting the Power, with Love (a 10-week online program, hosted twice a year). Processing Group members are welcome to participate in the program before, after, or not at all (knowing it contains useful additional support).
