Process Work

Process Work is a cross-disciplinary, multi-cultural approach first formulated by Dr. Arnold Mindell in Zurich in the late 1970s. With its roots in Jungian psychology, Taoism, and quantum physics, it approaches disturbance as a source of meaning and development. In unraveling difficulties and challenges, new awareness emerges that leads to the growth of wisdom, and the enrichment of individuals, groups, systems, and cultures. Process Work is applied in many fields and is useful in working with:

It provides a practical framework through which individuals, relationships, groups and systems can connect with greater awareness, depth, sensitivity and effectiveness.
