Psychotherapy and the Work of the Soul
I feel honoured to be invited to share my thoughts about psychotherapy and the soul with members of the Jungian community. Thank you.
My use of the word ‘soul’ is strongly influenced by the work of Hameed Ali, pen name A.H. Almaas, the originator of the Diamond Approach to personal realisation.
Following my first contact with psychotherapy over 35 years ago, I have been attached to and identified it as a path for self-realization.
‘Family constellations go beyond the concept of a purely personal experience of trauma to include trauma that has been the fate of others, primarily those we are bound to in empathy and blind love and in a kind of unconscious attempt to balance and compensate. This, too, extends beyond the limits of present time and space.’ (p32, Schneider, 2007)
8.15-9.45 pm TUESDAY 19 JANUARY 2016, London.
In this talk I will share my thoughts and personal experiences in relation to an advocacy for an extension of the dialogic-gestalt notion of healing through meeting. I believe healing contact can take place from within, from the divine, and through meeting with other people; that genuine contact has a depth within whatever dimension it manifests. I also believe it can help free us from the restrictions of our personality structure, and connect us to deeper truths, that lay beyond the confines of what we have taken the world and ourselves to be. I will draw upon my study of the Diamond Approach with the Ridhwan School, family constellation work, and also, Jürgen Habermas’s concepts of ‘knowledge constitutive interests’.
This talk is one of the 'Leaading Edges' series which was initiated by Dr. Gottfried M. Heuer in 2010.
