Searching for Gold on a Wobbly Planet. Process Mind and Neuroscience.
ANZPOP Workshop Melbourne, Sept.2011. New perspectives in Process Work.
“More gold has been mined from the thoughts of man than has ever been taken from the earth.” Napoleon Hill
Process Work is an innovative approach to individual and collective change. It brings psychology, group dynamics, spirituality, and creative expression together in a single paradigm. An offshoot of Jungian psychology, Process Work was developed in the 1970s by Jungian analyst, Dr Arnold Mindell.
He began to research illness as a meaningful expression of the unconscious mind. He discovered that this manifests not only in night time dreams but also in physical symptoms and relationship difficulties. Also in addictions, death and dying, depression, anxiety and social tensions. Process Work is an innovative, ‘awareness-based’ approach to individual and collective change.
It has now been scientifically proved that we can change our thoughts and our minds and that changes our brain! Neuroplasticity (also known as cortical re-mapping) refers to the ability of the human brain to change as a result of one’s experience. ie. that the brain is ‘plastic’ and ‘malleable’. When we use earth based psychology techniques and practice accessing our Process Mind altered states intelligence, it helps us expand who we think we are. We shift from our primary identity and we access different states of mind that are not part of our ongoing daily consciousness. (our secondary processes, which are those aspects of ourselves that are further away from our conscious mind) This, in turn changes how we think and feel and therefore changes our neural pathways in the brain.
