NOTE: This is an excerpt from the full 90-minute DVD
In the first half-hour of this two-part DVD, Dr. Mindell provides an overview of process psychology and its relationship to the ancient Chinese concept of the Tao. He describes his approach as a “meta-psychology” which incorporates dreamwork, bodywork, relationship work, movement, family systems, spirituality, and global work.
In part two, Dr. Mindell discusses the concept of the “dreambody.” He discusses process oriented psychology as a form of meditation, providing examples of its application in areas as diverse as conflict resolution and medicine. He emphasizes the importance of not relying on therapist interpretations in the practice of process psychology.
Dr. Arnold Mindell is an innovative psychological theorist and therapist. Founder of the Center for Process Oriented Psychology in Zurich, Switzerland, and Portland, Oregon, he is author of Dreambody, Working With the Dreaming Body, City Shadow, The River’s Way, The Year One, Working on Yourself Alone and Coma: Key to Awakening.
