Community of Practice- Healing History September 2020

The Covid pandemic and the worldwide BLM demonstrations show us that the world is in crises and that we are all affected. How do we make sure that history doesn't just repeat itself? How do we transform our stories of the past to a collective future? Healing History is very much needed. Now more than ever. But how?

Healing histories practice track is a community of practice program with four 1,5-hour online work- and learning-sessions. It is available for participants of previous processwork and/or healing histories workshops. During the month of September three gatherings take place in which we’ll work with exercises from the healing histories manual.

They allow you to work on several personal-, relationship and world topics at home, while in the online sessions we’ll share learnings, give needed context, answer questions and have additional practice. The exercises and the online sessions will be hosted in the SH!FT platform allowing for all participants to exchange learnings and ask for mutual support during this journey.

The session will be hosted by the SH!FT team facilitators and on October 2nd we’ll close with a group-coaching session with Gary Reiss.

This Community of Practice will focus on:
• practice facilitating the inner and outer critic
• rank and power exercises
• beginning to explore your history• know the basic steps of conflict resolution• practice inner work exercises

Community of practice sessions run from 19.30 - 21.00 CET on the following three dates: 10th, 17th and 24th of September.
Closing coaching session with Gary Reiss will be 19.30 - 21.00 CET on the 2nd of october.

Healing Histories: Healing our Historical Trauma

Much of our stuck points in healing our personal psychology is based on our psychological inheritance from our families. Our psychological inheritance refers to the way we inherit personal issues and historical issues that our parents and their parents didn’t process. The more we become aware of these issues the more free we can be of unconscious patterns that run our lives, organize our body symptoms, and tend to sabotage our work and relationships. The more groups and nations become aware of this history the better the chances that people can break historical patterns and not just keep repeating the painful unlearned lessons of history.

Without this historical trauma awareness individual and collective life seems like it doesn’t go anywhere except around in circles. Gaining awareness of the healing processes we carry that are historical is a key step to breaking free of the painful repetitive programs destroying our lives and our world.

In this seminar we focus on:

- Burning our wood we carry from many generations and harvesting the gifts of our family lineage
- Identifying and freeing ourselves from unconscious patterns that run our personal and collective lives.
- Getting out of the hypnotic binds of growing up in a family
- Discovering how historical trauma is behind our biggest difficulties, and transforming this into our greatest powers for world change
- Learning how to facultative groups and open forums on community based healing for historical trauma

Healing the History of Personal and Collective Trauma

Living in our families, our institutions, and our world, we are so often flooded with so much of our own and our families, and our people’s hurt that we can’t process that hurt, digest it, and move it through us. Instead we go into symptoms of trauma and post-traumatic stress. We freeze and split off major parts of ourselves and in the process of doing this, limit our energy, fluidity, and potential.

In this online seminar we have an opportunity to learn how to unfreeze ourselves and restore our flow so we can heal our own trauma and help others heal their trauma through the latest techniques and approaches from Process oriented Psychology.

This seminar includes:
• Healing personal trauma—moving from frozenness to fluidity
• Healing family trauma
• Healing historical trauma
• Working with the role of trauma in body symptoms
• Moving from trauma victim to empowered world changer
