Course description

Over the last thirty years I have been experimenting with Groupwork and Worldwork, applying it in a wide range of settings including world hot spots, organizations and communities. Through this time I have wrestled with developing my awareness, managing heat, and noticing what in the applications work and where refinements are needed. Refinements not so much in Process Work theory but in how it is understood, used, and applied.

More recently my ideas are beginning to gel and I am becoming clear on some of the changes in our approach and how it might allow deeper impact in the world. To experiment more deeply with these ideas I am offering a five week class online for PWI, for two hours each to explore these ideas as well as explore any challenges or issues you might have in applying Process Work in groups.

The group will be limited to those who are familiar and have experience with Groupwork and Worldwork and its application, and have an open inquisitive mind. We will have a maximum size of 15 people. The course will be both theoretical and experiential and will be held online.

I am excited by this offering and hope you will join me in it.
