Seminar: My Dreaming Body Our Dreaming World: An online training in working with somatic experiences
September 25-27, 2020
(Lilly Vassiliou + Andy Smith)
* OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
100% ONLINE IN ZOOM (due to the uncertainty of restrictions by COVID19)
Our bodies have a wild uncanny and unpredictable wisdom, unmediated by our thinking minds, belief systems and the pressures of everyday life.
Our body experiences, symptoms and illnesses don’t just exist in isolation within our bodies, but are part of the social, cultural and political field in which we live, and co-create with others. Inner dynamics are connected to societal dynamics and vice versa. Grappling with the collective as well as the individual dynamics is needed for the welfare of the whole.
The world is in us, as much as we are in the world. Our body experiences are our bodies and the world dreaming! They can not only tell us about the power dynamics and cultural edges in our society; they also contain the keys to living our deepest truth and purpose as co-creators in this world.
But how can we unfold and make sense of these deep body experiences and live their wisdom?
In this seminar we will use awareness skills and practices relevant for our personal and professional lives.
Using Processwork methods and tools we will learn to explore our body experiences with curiosity, following verbal and non-verbal communication signals to discover the wisdom that is revealed to us through our bodies.
- Facilitators of groups and organisations will find ways of welcoming personal feelings and experiences that make the collective work more effective.
- Therapists, counsellors and coaches will find ways to engage with the collective dimensions of individual client issues.
- Everyone will explore inner awareness practices which combine everyday reality, the creative fluidity of dreams and dream-like body experiences, and insights that have a deeper essence quality connecting us with the larger universe.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The uncertainty generated by the arrival of the Coronavirus in our country forces us, as an Entity, to carefully observe our environment to adopt different protection measures for the entire community. These next weeks will be of changes and we have to see how everything evolves and how we adapt to what is coming. The School cannot live with its back to reality. And for this reason we are already working — in online meetings —- so that the activities of the coming weeks are as little affected as possible.
NOTE ON THE ZOOM PLATFORM: The School of the Work Process Institute will continue doing the activities online from Zoom. The trainers have instructions to manage the platform in the best possible way and it is also the responsibility of each participant not to spread the links to the sessions and to close the sessions after each use. We will make an exhaustive control of the access to the sessions and as always we will stick to the current data protection legislation.
