Annual Process Work Intensive Course 2010
January 18 – February 19, 2010 Portland, Oregon
The Process Work Institute would like to invite you to the 25th Annual Intensive Course in Process Work, which will be held at the Process Work Institute in Portland, Oregon from January 18-February 19, 2010. The course offers a unique opportunity to learn Process Work in an intensive format and within an international group setting. The course includes Process Work’s many applications and its most recent developments, and it is designed as an adult learning event. Participants will learn and study together by means of theory, experiential exercises, and group processes. Since the course attracts students from many nationalities, ethnic groups, and religious backgrounds, issues such as multiculturalism, diversity, and community building are part of the learning experience.
What is Process Work?
Process Work is an awareness practice that follows nature and the unique expression of what is trying to happen. It is an innovative approach to individual and collective change, which brings psychology, spirituality, social activism, and creative expression together into a single paradigm. Process Work was developed in the 1970s and 80s by Dr. Arnold Mindell. At the time, Dr. Mindell was a Jungian analyst, who began researching illness as a meaningful expression of the unconscious mind. He discovered that the dreaming process manifests not only in nighttime dreams but also in physical symptoms, relationship difficulties, addictions, extreme states of consciousness, and social tensions.
The Process Work paradigm believes that approaching these dreamlike processes with openness and respect can lead to new insights and create energetic shifts that are vital for our development. With its roots in Jungian psychology, philosophical Taoism, and modern physics, Process Work is based on the assumption that the solution to a problem is contained within the disturbance itself, and that within the problems of today lie solutions for tomorrow. Recent developments in Process Work theory have deepened the connection between quantum physics and process-oriented awareness training through the concepts of sentient reality and earth-based psychology.
The Intensive Course The Intensive course offers a comprehensive beginning training in essential process work philosophy, skills, and metaskills and includes topics such as dream work, body work, relationship work, inner work, large group work, and working with non-ordinary states of consciousness and addictions. Throughout the five weeks, classes are held Mondays-Fridays and are taught by different teaching teams. Morning classes focus on basic applications of Process Work, and afternoon classes help participants to further their understanding of the material by focusing on theory, inner work, group process, and skills training.
No classes are held on Friday mornings, but the Intensive course joins with the larger community for Arny Mindell’s class on Friday afternoons. This provides Intensive participants and the larger Process Work community with an opportunity to meet. Arny’s classes are an integral part of the Intensive course and offer an exciting completion to each week’s studies. In addition to classes, each participant will be in a small group that meets twice a week and provides an intimate container for learning and mutual support. While not included in the price of the tuition, private therapy is highly recommended in order to deepen your personal experience of the large group. Both diplomats and phase two students will be available for scheduling personal therapy sessions.
Process Work trainers and diplomats are certified Process-oriented therapists, group facilitators, and teachers, who conduct seminars and training workshops throughout the world. Trainers hold academic degrees in fields such as psychology, medicine, theology, art, physics and other disciplines.
