Community meetings are held in the Big Room at the Process Work Institute located at 2049 NW Hoyt Street in Portland, Oregon.
These community meetings are open to all interested in or curious about Processwork and the Process Work Institute. They provide a space to come together and create community by following process. Facilitators are chosen from the group each time, and we begin with open sorting for issues that are on people’s hearts and minds. We then choose a topic that the group wants to focus on, and explore together more deeply using a process-oriented facilitation approach.

Added Dreambody Medicine Forums
We would like to add some additional Dreambody Medicine Forums focused on the Coronavirus. Join us next Friday, March 27, 2020 from 7pm-8:30pm, on Zoom https://zoom.us/j/398926784
Due to physical distancing all forums will be online until further notice.
We would like to work with someone on any issues related to the virus. If you would like to work with one of us online at the forum please let us know by sending me an email.
In these forums we explore the link between individual experience of body symptoms with larger cultural and social issues.
We hope to bring an atmosphere of exploration, curiosity and enrichment.. Using Processwork we work with symptoms following an individual’s signals in a non pathologizing, non interpretative way to find meaning in our experiences. This may help relieve the symptom and help us relate to our symptoms differently. Respecting each person’s experience as their own.
All welcome. Free of charge.
These forums are for everyone. People with all types of symptoms and care providers whether family members in home or medical professionals. Anyone with an interest in health and medicine and helping themselves and others.
Here are the additional dates which will also have a focus on the virus.
(Fridays from 7-8:30pm)
Add them to your calendar and we hope to see you there.
Dates are subject to change.
