Deep Democracy, Dreams, and Your Body


March 16 2018 - March 18 2018


Dr. Ellen Schupbach, Dr. Max Schupbach

In this three-day seminar, we will demonstrate and practice skills for working with acute and chronic experiences of body symptoms to find their connections to the Dreaming Process, the underlying deeper narrative of your personal journey and development.  Awareness and understanding of your deep nature and how it manifests in your current life situation is a key source of information for creativity in your everyday life that can support innovative changes in your professional, relationship and physical lifestyles.

Day 1: Dreambody: Your Body – Your Path

Introduction to the concept of the Dreambody: We will study and practice coaching tools to guide the awareness process of the client to discover the unique meaning of their issue and its relevance to the challenges that she or he is facing. You will work in pairs, and also have a chance to observe demonstrations of various Process Work interventions, including movement work, imagery, and “edge work”, interventions that bring awareness to the client about how to work with inner conflicts that appear in connection to personal changes.

Day 2: Lifemyth, Chronic Symptoms, Addictions, and Your Deeper Purpose

We will study space and time invariant (timeless) aspects of the self (your essence or lifemyth) which show deepest aspects of who you are, and your purpose in this lifetime. This can be helpful in working with your own chronic symptoms and possible addictive tendencies, and can be applied to your vision, professional development, career, and creativity.

Day 3: Health, Your Body, and Your Social Identity

This day will focus on embodied leadership; issues of gender, age, movement, sports, and addictive habits, and how your own deeper personal process might conflict with possible cultural habits. It will also focus on lifestyle and stress.

We will introduce and work with Process and health, and how lifestyle and medical thinking about what is healthy and what is not healthy is connected to social and cultural identities. We will experience and study how lifemyth and personal dreams can be healing elixirs for cultural trances about how we should be, live, and relate.


This is also the first Module of 8 as part of our 2 year certification program.
