Addictive Tendencies and Altered & Extreme States
3 & 6 Day Seminar
Sunday 7th - Saturday 13th of October (Free day Wednesday)
The first 3 days of the seminar are a public workshop open to all and the last 3 days are more focused on practitioner skills and supervision.
Facilitators: Dr Kas Robinson & Annie Blair
Where: Southern Highlands NSW Australia - The Barn House, 2 Argyle St Mittagong NSW
Part 1: Sunday/Monday/ Tuesday
The first three days will be a public workshop focused on: Cravings, compulsions and addictive tendencies can disturb our lives, moods and relationships. We will use Process Mind and signal awareness to dive deeply into these tendencies, access the energies contained there, and discover their contribution to creative, unexpected and meaningful expression in our everyday lives.
Finding the deeper thread of meaning behind addictive tendencies can change our relationship to ourselves, others and the world. As part of this course we will explore the meaning and energetic patterns within our childhood dream or life myth and how they can be a map for our life path or vision. We will also explore connections between our life myth and our addictive tendencies.
Wednesday - Free day to explore the beautiful Southern Highlands!
Part 2: Thursday/Friday/Saturday
The second three days will be directed towards practitioners and focus on: Altered and extreme states of consciousness, such as peak experiences, extreme anger, city shadows (i.e., states that mainstream society represses) all of which can be challenging and disturbing. In this course, we will learn to be more comfortable with our own altered states and those of others.
We will explore and unfold frozen or incomplete stories and patterns, enter into worlds and experiences that need to be seen, understood and unfolded into people’s lives.
We will discover ways to make meaning, reduce suffering and increase coherence out of what appears difficult to relate to or understand.
We will use process work methods, such as Process Mind, signal work, and symbolic thinking, to discover and unfold the meaning and energies behind states of consciousness that disturb our lives and the lives of others.
Additionally, we will focus on the therapist or facilitator's experience while working with people in altered or extreme states, in order to make these experiences useful for the client, the team, and for your wellbeing.
