Dance with Gaia: Process Your Community
16-18 December, 2023
Dance with Gaia: Process Your Community will focus on the wisdom of Arnold Mindell, the founder of Process Work or Process-oriented psychology. Process Work uses awareness to track psychological and physical processes that illuminate and possibly resolve inner, relationship, community and world issues.
To track and follow the processes mean to follow the nature, by following the visible and subtle signals coming from people and events. This means respecting individuals, groups, and the environment, exploring reality and also the dream and essence levels of events. By doing this we often gain more understanding and get surprising temporary solutions as well.
WHAT WE WILL LEARN TOGETHER:
- 3 levels of experiences
- Rank awareness
- The structure of process
- Concept of edge
- Inner work
- 4 phases in group process
Apart from the above, Dance with Gaia: Process Your Community will take participants to learn:
- how to use Processwork as a methodology to work on personal issues and help supporting other to work with his/her issues
- how to approach and facilitate conflict and how to listen and embrace all voices
- how to deal with differences and diversity to enrich individual and group potential
- for those who are interested in facilitation skills to work in dyads or triads and hopefully, to have opportunity to do group work.
Day 1 Welcoming (Notice the field, atmosphere, diversity) 3 levels of reality, Inner work: Recreate Your World, and Rank awareness
Day 2 Inner Work: Life myth, Edges Exercise: Body movement, and Amplification Exercise: Disturbing energy X Group process
