Module contents: Psychopathology and Emotions
Why and how exactly do we close our heart in relation to ourselves, in our work or in all-day-life? And what exactly do we need to reopen it?
Basic understanding of emotions: Basic and superficial emotions, levels of emotional activation – 4 (5) patterns of human perception. Emotional intelligence. The heart as the gate way for deeper experiences: Overcoming inner splits (e.g. self-interruptive splits, the inner critic).
The magic formula of the heart.Based on a scientific and experiential conceptual perspective I shall assist you in essentially understanding the role of emotions and of your heart. You will recognise the four basic patterns of human perception and experience (Attending/awareness, identification, felt being, letting go from the heart). This will help you to get in touch with what I call your “Central Drama”. In this “drama” we unconsciously try to move towards something (the longing pole) and also away from something (our deepest wound). But unfortunately, the contrary happens: we never find what we are longing for and end much more often with what we desperately attempt to avoid. The “central drama” is the key to reach profounder levels of understanding in your personality and reach out to the innermost core of your soul. In this whole framework we will also deal with different pathological topics, such as depressive and maniac disorders, anxiety and psychosis. The hero's journey can be used as an inner map in mental crisis. The very significant principle of failure and sacrificing will be in the focus. Humor as part of the spiritual journey will play a vital part. In all of this you will find answers and certainly new questions about how a transpersonal psychotherapist can work from a truly connected, heartful and emotional level. We will use breathing techniques, two-chairs-work, impro-theatre-work, dancing, and meditation.

This is quite a unique team of trainers. Not only are most of us leaders of transpersonal training centres or influential transpersonal psychotherapists in our respective countries, but also did we spend countless emotional meetings - debating, confronting, and forging together a view of transpersonal psychotherapy which allows diverging standpoints and yet, a common base for offering this far-reaching training program. These meetings resulted in two important outcomes. One is the book Coming Home – The Intimacy of Consciousness Exploration and Transpersonal Psychotherapy (Cambridge Scholar Publishing, 2017) which we wrote together, and which bears testimony to the many days and nights of common investigation. The other is a deep heart-felt friendship which grew gradually out of our encounters and has become more and more powerful over the last years. We believe that this will be a good fundament for running such a large-scale training together. You might be interested in this training out of different reasons. Whether you are a healer who has been engaging in psycho-spiritual practices with clients for many years, or whether you are a mainstream psychotherapist who wants to extend his world-view and his healing capacities, or whether you are a spiritual seeker who is searching for greater meaning in your life, this training “The Healing Field” may be just the perfect fit for what you have been looking for. It begins in spring 2019, and consists of two ten-day sessions, held in the spring and autumn for each of the four and a half years. We meet in beautiful and serene locations in Southern Germany, the Paris countryside, in Barcelona, St. Petersburg, Moscow, and in the desert of Morocco. If you join this training you acquire for yourself - next to profound individual and collective experiences - a multitude of transpersonal tools and methods from 12 teachers, who all have long years of working and teaching experience. They will assist and guide you to find your style, your own well-grounded therapeutic attitude, and the methodical set of transpersonal tools which will suit you best and the people which you work or will work with.
