What is Process Work?

Process Work is an innovative approach to individual and collective change that brings psychology, group dynamics, spirituality, and creative expression together in a single paradigm. An offshoot of Jungian psychology, Process Work was developed by Jungian analyst Arnold Mindell in the 1970s when Mindell began to research illness as a meaningful expression of the unconscious mind. He discovered that the unconscious manifests not only in nighttime dreams but also in physical symptoms, relationship difficulties, addictions, and social tensions. Drawing from his background as a quantum physicist, as well as from Taoist principles, shamanism, Zen Buddhism, aboriginal wisdom, and communication science, Mindell formulated the idea of the "dreaming process," a coherent and meaningful flow of experiences that underlies all life events.

Over the last thirty years of application and research by Dr.'s Arny and Amy Mindell and their colleagues, Process Work has developed into a comprehensive interdisciplinary system designed for working with the full spectrum of human experience.
