Working on Your own Relationship… inviting a friend

Working on Your Own Relationship

This is part of a series of posts inspired by my students who are studying “working on your own relationship”.  For the past years I have been intensively teaching this topic to various groups either in person or on Skype. This challenging aspect of relationship work in Processwork asks the facilitator to facilitate a relationship in which they are involved and most often those where there is a conflict. Read more ›

Bi-monthly classes from September until December. The dates are Sept .14, 28,
Oct. 19, Nov. 9, 23, Dec. 7 
 taught in German and English. It is sometimes perceived that the newer developments in Process Work like Processmind contradict  the structural rigour, tools, and attitudes that were developed in the early days. This class is designed to help guide learners in how and when to use different processwork methods. We will find the overlapping fluidity of the structural analysis of the first training and the deep self knowledge of the second training.

There are many folks who worked hard to publish the original journal and we feel it should be available to all of us. Please check out the short history and credits on the page. Read more ›

Power Transformed

Chernobyl power plant today

One of humanities greatest troubles and mysteries is power: who has it, who does not? One of the biggest difficulties I see in therapy is if you have it how do you use it? It is unusual for someone to identify with being powerful without the fear of abusing that power. This fear is problematic. It creates a denial of power that banishes it. It makes power inaccessible when needed. Most people have power. Think of someone you know who says they are weak but has the power to make you change your plans, even your life, without asking directly for what they want.

Power can show up in your relationships through conflicts, either implicit conflicts or explicit ones. It can show up in blocks and impedances to hoped-for outcomes in life. While working with physical symptoms I have seen a lot of power emerge. While this sounds unlikely read on and see how Andri transformed the power of his symptom into vitality and hope in life.

Writing Block Dreamwork

Writing BlockI have had a writing block for most of my life. I can’t count the times that I’ve had an impulse, even the need to write about the learning and ideas that fascinate me. Countless people have said to me, “You have to write, you are doing such interesting stuff.” I’ve worked on it numerous times, yet I am still plagued with something like a faulty gene that won’t let me write.

Recently a friend told me that she remembered Arny Mindell saying that if you have a depression take on an impossible task. Read more ›

Rank is earned and unearned. It comes from the situation you were born into, like being supported by parents, the country you were born into the economic situation and so on. Earned rank comes from things you have worked for: education, professional or personal accomplishments.
Rank is related to power.

There are different kinds of rank: Read more ›

Aging and moving

Moving and a not-so-friendly attitude toward aging are surprisingly linked. This anti aging attitude shows up in various ways as a sort of background fog or a constant and annoying underlying tone.  There is a sense of being undermined by thoughts about diminishing faculties or a preoccupation with checking for symptoms and uncertainty about the future. This became clear to me one day last week as I was vacuum packing some nuts. Read more ›
