What was the dream that helped you decide you wanted to study Process Work or is most closely related to the beginning of your studies for you?
The night after I was accepted on to the Foundation Year I had a dream I was watching a DVD of Process Work's beginnings where Arny is sitting in the shop window of a café watching people walking past and he looks depressed. He is middle aged, balding and intense looking (based on Amy's sketches of him working with people in the middle of their seminar in “Riding the Horse Backwards”). Suddenly, “Eureka!”, he hits on the idea of process work/understanding that the nature of the universe is process-oriented and excitedly goes over to tell the café cashier about it. She says she is interested in Arny's ideas but she loves women. Arny chuckles and goes out the shop, looking cheerful about what comes next.
How do you see the dream now?
I think this dream was an instant response from the Foundation Year entry interview that showed studying to be a process worker could help me to work with both the "Cashier" part of me that tries to stay comfortable and the "Arny" part of me that wants to learn how to connect with others.
Does the dream have any suggestions for things you could do more now or in the future?
If I was going to do something to include both my self-learning and self-loving aspects more in my life I would go and open a supportive “café” of my own. Hmmm...I realise as one of the editors of Wave that I feel I am working towards creating a Support Café in the moment by writing this response. Far Out. Thanks to our community for creating the opportunities for me to follow my dreams. It feels wild that I don't know what will happen to my dreams when I finish writing this response and it feels fun finding out. In the moment I realise that I am already the café myself and RSPOPUK is a DVD of process work's beginnings and future. Wow. It feels beautiful to have found not only a café inside me but one in the world. Such a relief for my inner cashier! Now if I take a step to see what comes next...
