Three classes in the series:

Tuesdays April 16, May 14, June 11, 2019

12noon-2pm Pacific Time Zone

Today’s monopoly capitalism was partly built on colonialism, slavery, and genocide; followed by military spending, marketing, planned obsolescence, waste, and many meaningless & destructive goods; all leading to profit and polarization of excessive wealth and poverty, and degradation of our air, water, and soil. The Indigenous Konaway Nesika Tillikum = All Our Relations, interconnection with all of life, carries us to our immense creative potential. As the human animal part of nature, how do we increase our own meaningful action, with awareness and deep love for all creation?

  1. Exploring how our souls relate to our modern economy, leading to greater awareness and choice for living on our planet.
  2. Reconciling inner and outer environments to protect our Earth System.
  3. Being ethically aware and active as we proceed from one earthly challenge to the next.

Delivery Method:  Livestream ONLY

Price: Regular $120, Early bird $108 if you register by April 8th (please contact PWI for member pricing and registration.)

  • May 11, 2019 - May 12, 2019
    10:00 am - 5:00 pm

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.

Your Unique Facilitator Style:

Exploring Your Hidden Powers as Therapist, Facilitator, Teacher, and Helper

Instructor: Amy Mindell, PhD.

The unique qualities of your work as a facilitator, therapist, teacher, coach, or other helper, are often unknown to you! Yet, these qualities bring your work to life and make it most unique and effective. In this class we’ll explore one hidden aspect of your style, and then, discover how it is part of your rich palette of “substyles.” Greater knowledge of your substyles will help you flow more as you work, and, feel more at home in all you do. Expect theory, discussions, and fun exercises.

  • Day 1. Love, Aging, Symptoms, Day of the Dead
    May 24, 2019

  • Day 2. Your Personal Story: What is Your Worldwork?
    May 31, 2019
    3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Instructor: Arnold Mindell, PhD.

Remember the Mexican Day of the Dead. We age, and die, or do we die?

What is aging, death? What’s the meaning of life??

See picture below (Thanks Wikipedia)

“Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl. The holiday has spread throughout the world, being absorbed into other deep traditions in honor of the dead. It has become a national symbol and as such is taught (for educational purposes) in the nation’s schools.”

In Processwork, we may ask: “What does all this mean for your life and for process oriented psychology, for your innerwork, relationship and conflict work?
