Topic 1:  Relationships On All Levels

To develop a meta-view of the relationship is powerful.

The focus is to notice signals, unfold and flow with the process of the relationship.

Here we learn how to track our own state of mind and that of the relationship itself. The Meta view reveals when and what to do and not to do and how to be in the non-doing. We will work with the field, the diversity of parts and the Metaskills of holding parts. Recognizing the levels of consciousness determines at what level to work.

The learning is more like a circle than linear as are relationships.

We will include the therapeutic relationship and those in teams and work places.

Included in each seminar week will be time on group dynamic and supervision / case control.
