Big Mind & Process Work

 

It is interesting to explore how the different approaches to unveiling the nature of Existence relate to each other.

Big Mind
Big Mind grew out of a combination of a Buddhist view and Voice Dialogue, and Voice Dialogue in turn grew out of gestalt therapy and Jungian analysis. It is a “yang” approach in some ways, focusing on clarity of understanding and view. It brings awareness of the different ways the mind functions and manifests, on the personal and transpersonal levels.

Process Work
Process work grew out of combination of a Taoist view and insights and techniques from Jungian analysis and gestal therapy. It is more of a “yin” approach, emphasizing a full bodied exploration of the mysterious unfolding of the process. It also brings awareness of the different ways the mind functions and manifests, on the personal and transpersonal levels.
