ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS

ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS

A process-oriented approach to out-of-ordinary states of awareness

As children we go in and out of experiences full of fantasy, imaginary characters and dreaminess. With the socialization process we are taught to fit in and engage with life from a more rational and culturally appropriate perspective. However, unusual states of consciousness are very much part of the dreaming process and occur fairly regularly to all of us, even if we are unaware of them. They manifest through our dreams, body symptoms, relationships, addictions, and interactions with the world. They bring information that can be helpful in encountering challenging and difficult moments, and cultivate greater understanding of our processes and directions in life.

In focusing on altered states, we will have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in different parts which may be beyond everyday reality but which we still meet fairly regularly on both inner and outer levels. We will practice techniques that allow us access to these in order to harness their teachings and qualities, learning how to integrate them and build bridges between our “usual” identities and what is beyond the mostly known and recognized aspects of ourselves and our experiences.

We will be learning to:

  • Notice altered states when they occur
  • Navigate fight or fright experiences
  • Make the meaning of the altered state useful in our lives
  • Integrate various tools that are helpful in working with altered awareness

PLEASE NOTE:  This workshop is for all those interested in exploring a Processwork approach to altered states of consciousness. Suitable for beginners as well as those with experience.
