On Saturday, December 13, I will host my second 3-hour Dreaming Feeling Background Self-Development Workshop! The first one in the Detroit area on November 8 was a huge success, so I’ll be keeping most of the format intact. This time it will take place at the Crazy Wisdom Bookstore & Tea Room in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan. Their Community Room is a perfect space for this kind of work.
You can expect:
– A featured demonstration of how dreams and body sensations can guide us through interpersonal conflicts.
– Individual, pair, and/or small group exercises to develop awareness and communications skills.
– A full Group Process including some role playing.
– And: flowing with whatever needs to happen in the moment.
Here are the other details:
What do relationship and group conflicts, body sensations, movement urges, nighttime dreams, altered states, and nature experiences have in common? They’re all part of the same process of becoming. When you feel stuck or disturbed by one area, the others can help you get flowing again. In one sense we are individuals living in the universe – and in another sense the universe is happening through bodies, dreams, relationships, etc.
In this 3-hour workshop, facilitator Nick Meador will offer a variety of self-development teachings and exercises to build awareness and communications skills. We’ll witness the parallels from individual to relationships to groups, and see how there are always multiple ways of interpreting and working with our experience.
In his facilitation Nick incorporates Process Work (or process-oriented psychology), Nonviolent Communication, cognitive therapies, and his own unique ideas. Nick trained at the Process Work Institute in Portland, Oregon. Process Work is an awareness paradigm that sees opportunities for growth and transformation in the disturbances and mysteries we find in dreams, body symptoms, and our interpersonal lives.
