Western assumptions regarding self tend to isolate each self such that it appears to us and can be defined as separate and distinct to other selves. Existential phenomenology proposes a view of self that is always and inevitably in relation. This interplay between “I” and “not-I” provides a very different view and understanding of self.
Clock time is a measure of the linear sense of time. Lived time, as phenomenology describes it, is a vertical spiral in which every present moment carries a creative capacity to remember the past in light of imagining a future and vice versa. This capacity is the foundation of human freedom with implications for psychotherapy.
Supervision is not ‘management’ but open exploration. It is a soulful endeavour. At the heart of group supervision is the crucial notion of affect, the modification or variation produced in a body/mind by the interaction with other bodies/minds.
These Master Workshops provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at our practice and re-view assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist.
