Welcome

Process Oriented Psychology (Process Work) is a cross-disciplinary approach to individual and collective change. It is applied in personal psychotherapy, dream and body work, conflict resolution, creativity and the arts, mental health, the environment, organisational development and worldwork. RSPOPUK offers psychotherapy training accredited through the UKCP.

..... what has been before us, why we have come into being, and where our lives are flowing?
This flow has a geometry - the path is an arrow, a vector.
It is, as Jung said 'a story that has no beginning and end'.

Creativity, Power and Leadership

Seminar with Drs. Max and Ellen Schupbach

London, University of London Union
November 22 - 24, 2013

Strategic, Emotional, and Spiritual Aspects of Creating Sustainable Change in Yourself, Your Life, Your Team, and Your Organisation.

Join us for our seminar on how to create new cultures in your life, your team, and your organization in a world that matters to you.
Deep Democracy Leadership is a creative path that doesn’t focus on managing change, but instead notices, frames and co-creates emerging futuristic solutions to existing issues and dilemmas.
For some of us, this is a strategic effort to bring creativity and counter culture into what we do; for others, it is an emotional reality that shows where and how we can be active in a way that feels good to our health and sustains our relationships; for others, it is a deeply spiritual path of following a calling that we cannot always explain even to ourselves, asking for our courage to follow the unknown.

Autumn Intensive Seminar: The World in Relationships

Facilitated by
Arlene Audergon with Anup Karia and Stanya Studentova

London, England : 27th September - 2nd October 2013

Arlene Audergon is teaching the upcoming 6 day Intensive Course, 'The World in Relationship', September 27-October 2, in London. (Camden). together with Anup Karia, Stanya Studentova, and the RSPOP UK faculty.

An underlying idea for this course is that our community and world problems are my personal stories and yours, our family stories, and our intergenerational, collective history and a part of all our relationships. What happens when we facilitate this spot where our personal histories, and collective histories touch, transforming that history and even creating our future together?

Many of us are involved in movements of social change and community development, or work with individuals and families, small or large organisations, trying to bring about a positive contribution. Finding ways to facilitate these dynamics makes a huge difference –to feel less isolated and more compassionate to the whole process, even within difficult and intractable situations.

We will also explore what links us, beyond 1+1, a dreaming field that brings us to life, and makes life worthwhile, cultivating the ability to perceive the relatedness of all parts of the ‘dreaming patterns’ organizing our short and long-term relationships.

Global Change International Conference

A Forum for Sustainable Group Process Methods in Working with Social Challenges

28th – 30th April 2012, Volkshaus, Zurich 

Since the beginning of the world economic crisis, the social tensions in Europe and in other parts of the world have increased considerably. These transformations are a matter of concern to all of us. And they raise the question of which methods are suitable to facilitate the current transformation processes in our communities and organisations.

This three-day conference has the aim to create a forum for representatives from various sustainable methods and by doing so to create a signalling effect:

We are the world:

Power, Privilege, Marginalisation and Oppression as Potential Sources for Deep Connection

 with Jan Dworkin Ph.D

A Three Day Workshop
Findhorn, Scotland  7th to 9th November 2014

This seminar is open to individuals and couple, newcomers to Processwork as well as seasoned learners.

Unintentional Music: Releasing Creativity and Transforming Stage Fright

Facilitated by
Lane Arye

Cooper Hall near Frome in Somerset, England : 26th - 28th April 2013, Friday 18:00 Sunday 16:00

Whenever we create, just like in other areas of our lives, some things happen that do not go along with our intentions.  The unintentional aspects of the music we make – the unwanted note, the cracked voice, the strange croaking sound we try to avoid, the rhythmic problem we cannot erase even after hours of practice – contain more wisdom than we think.  They are intimations of parts of ourselves, and of our music, that lie beyond our awareness.  Exploring the unintentional with curiosity and love can help us to tap into the wellsprings of our deepest creativity, and make our music, and ultimately our lives, more authentic, meaningful, and original.

Lane is a singer and songwriter, as well as an internationally known Process Worker and workshop leader who has helped thousands of people worldwide transform themselves and their creativity. Watch a video or download the attached flyer.

Research Studio

A Research Studio on the Application of Process Work in the World.

Notting Hill Gate London. U.K. 30th November - 1st December 2012

A participative studio for sharing and exploring Process-Oriented research into facilitation and psychotherapy

Process Work involves a willingness to be open to what’s emerging. Come and hear about others’ research and share your own research journey – wherever you are on it.

Everyone is welcome - whether or not you identify as a researcher, or a Process Worker – join us to share and explore the spirit of enquiry.

It’s a myth that research is an individual activity – it happens in community, through sharing, collaborating, and how you orient yourself in relation to what already exists. This studio will offer a range of formats to support and to study the process of doing and sharing research.

The Key to Life: A Global Approach to Personal and World Problems

A seminar with Arny and Amy Mindell

London 3-5 May 2012

Body, World Conflict, Financial and Ecological problems are interconnected with local and global problems….as we all know.

They require both local and global teamwork. But until now, our human race has not seemed especially gifted at this. Of course, catastrophes force us to work together. However we will suggest that besides catastrophes, a more global method to resolve recurring personal and planetary problems.

We call this method, “the facilitator as dreamer”. This method is an ultimately practical method of dealing with many unsolved personal +world problems. Perhaps you sensed in quiet moments, something moving you. We will show that this spirit of process, described five thousand years ago as the “Tao that can’t be said” can help us today.
