What is Process Oriented Psychology?

Process Oriented Psychology supports individuals, relationships and groups to discover themselves.
Processwork uses awareness to track emerging psychological and physical processes that can illuminate and help to resolve inner and outer issues including personal growth and the facilitation of relationship, team, and world challenges.  
Process Oriented Psychology is an evolving, trans-disciplinary approach to change facilitation and a multicultural, multi-level awareness practice for individuals, relationships, and organizations in all states of consciousness.

What Our Students Have to Say

It is a joy to experience being taught so well. I believe the impact of the teaching is magnified by the material of PW: I think we are essentially being taught skills and tools to know ourselves better; how to use and fill out more of our humanness.
The intensive was an opportunity to get to work with so many different teachers, facilitators and counselors; to experiment and practice with peers; to attend small groups for deepening, digesting and connecting. I loved it!
The intensive was like a nudge (or, sometimes, a straight out shove) for things to start moving and working, and they're still moving and working, and gaining momentum, and I have no idea where anything is going, and that's probably what I love the most.
A truly remarkable opportunity to engage in deep development and transformation on many levels while learning about Processwork and its many applications!
The opportunity to work deeply on yourself, on relationships, on the world, on the body and movement and altered states, means having a diverse and multi-layered inner and outer experience as well.
I love the Intensive Course! There’s always a rich mixture of participants from all over the world, bringing their own cultures and individual perspectives. With the world going through such big changes, it is inspiring to learn and grow together as a global community.
