LEARNING ABOUT OUT-OF-ORDINARY STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND HOW TO ENGAGE WITH THEM

Ingrid Rose, PhD

How do we make contact and join with those who are in far-out states of consciousness such as those found in deep altered states, dementia, coma and near-death? Medical research is only just beginning to acknowledge that the person in deeply altered, vegetative or comatose states, still shows a degree of consciousness. Methods of making contact are generally still being developed.
 
Processwork, however, has an already established toolbox of techniques and interventions that are used not only to access the profound experiences often found within these states, but to also cultivate an awareness for all concerned of the deep meaning which may be held there.
 
In this talk, Ingrid Rose, will share with you some theoretical concepts, case studies and examples, highlighting how Processwork methods are used and how they embrace all experiences as valuable for the individual and those around them even when those experiences are disturbing. Not only do we look at how to value these often uninvited guests, but also how to engage with them to unravel deep insights into the unique process of each individual.
