Procedure: presentations, discussions, small group work, self-reflection, exercises and of course self exploration in the beautiful and culturally rich city of Marakech. We will set the foundation for this program by introducing the practices of sitting meditation and yoga. The foundations of Ashtanga yoga will be presented with the intention of preparing the body to sit in meditation. This will allow participants to learn to identify more subtle aspects of their own experience. This information can then be applied to the therapeutic process.
In addition we will explore unique aspects of the creative process that can shed light on the workings of the subconscious for use in the therapeutic setting, including social dreaming.
Mornings will focus on the individual self-exploration so that the therapist has a personal experience of the practices. Afternoons will focus on applying the tools to the therapeutic context with clients.
