Tracking, Hunting and Dreaming your Place in the World !
Deep Democracy and Job Hunting

Dreaming, a key concept in Process Work, is an approach/mindset/practice/discipline, which allows us to break through the confines of our social realities and helps us to enter a world in which our behavior is no longer primarily focused on fulfilling inner and outer expectations of “normal and common sense” only. It is daydreaming with a discipline to find meaning in what we do and develop attitudes and skills to stay with this meaning because it makes us happy, not because it brings outer success.

This class was originally developed out of conversations with some of my African friends in which we discussed the complicated situation in a very restricted job market that is often barely accessible without connections or money.

For our students, grappling with impossible situations is a key learning and training area. The goal is not predominantly to succeed in these situations, but to develop the attitudes that bring resilience, happiness and personal power in the face of life’s challenges. Don’t go for what is most likely to happen; develop the discipline to follow your dreaming even if it means that the most unlikely will have to happen. Compare it with a martial arts training, in which overcoming the opponent is not the goal, but developing a practice of awareness and presence, focusing on finding yourself and following the stream of life and energy. 

The class has three components. 1. You will receive an exercise 48 hours before the online class begins to prepare yourself with inner work for the class.

2. During the class, we will work with some of the participants on their situations in the job market.

3. At the end of the class, you will get an exercise that you can either do on your own, or you can pair up with another participant and complete the exercise together. For 3 days after the class, we have an email list in which you can ask questions and share your experience with others.

Please sign up by April 24th, so that we can send you the exercise ahead of time. It's an online class, but in some cases, you can participate by phone, please check with our coordinator.

The price of the class is US $ 60. Please check with our coordinator about fair trade fee for your region and currency system that you are part of. Workscholarships are as always available
