Nov 4th: The “Process” in Process Work: What it is, where it came from, and how to recognize it when you see it.
The first workshop explores “process”. Process is the essence of change – it flows along regardless of our attempts to pin it down to fixed structures and objects. Process work implies facilitation of process – recognizing what is changing, valuing the direction it is going, and helping it get there. In this seminar we’ll take a look back at the origins of the process concept in Arny Mindell’s work, and why it still keeps process work alive and exciting.
Our emphasis will be on the dynamics of process – how it continually unfolds, with or without our help, from the therapeutic practice to all aspects of everyday life. Short exercises will help you recognize process and its unfolding in inner, relational, and a social contexts. We will also experiment with “Vitamin P”, tiny bits of process awareness that can help facilitate process no matter where or when you find it.
Nov 18th: The Two Faces of Rank as State and Process: discover your inner resources, no matter who you are or what your social status.
Hierarchies of power and privilege often seem like inescapable consequences of our social being. But viewed through the lens of process, rank reveals a second side of its nature as an evolving, living dance that keeps re-asserting itself through the intricate details of how we interact with one another moment by moment. Cultivating awareness of rank as a dynamic process can free us from the pessimism of seeing rank only an inescapable fact privilege and status.
In this workshop, we will experiment with recognizing the flicker between these two faces of rank, with the goal of developing our sense of inalienable power that lies beyond social status and privilege. It is precisely this deeper source of strength that can make us more effective, congruent and trustworthy agents of social change.
About your Teacher
Joe Goodbread writes: I am fascinated by the philosophical roots of Process Work, and particularly of World Work. How does philosophy influence our world view? How does it contribute to our facilitation skills? My interest in philosophy led me to my current research into the processes of social marginalization. How do groups and individuals become marginal? How can we encourage the so-called mainstream to reflect on how it marginalizes individuals and groups? Another research area that fascinates me is the development of ‘tiny’ training programs that help people like social workers, mental health workers, mediators and others acquire just enough process work skills to facilitate their work, without having to enroll in a full-scale process work training program.
