From Processwork to Politics: Lesson on Leadership and Power Under Pressure

Saturday-Sunday; 9/17-9/18; Saturday: 10 am – 1 pm + 2 pm – 5 pm, Sunday: 10 am – 1 pm
Instructor: Vassiliki Katrivanou

From my experience being a Member of the Greek Parliament for four years in a country in the midst of deep political, economic and existential crisis, I used every ounce of my Processwork training to survive and be creative.  In this seminar we’ll explore the application of process work into politics and leadership roles, and how to create change and be close to our vision when consensus reality is polarized, depressing, and without alternative. In particular, we will explore: The multiple dimensions of power: power that attracts, power that harms, and power that creates, Becoming a role and finding in the midst of it our humanity and personal vision again, Addictive tendencies and blind spots of power, Facing public harassment and bullying, Self-care when our bodies absorb tension and become a battlefield.
