ADVANCED EXISTENTIAL SUPERVISION with Prof. Ernesto Spinelli
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Spinelli

These 4 Master Workshops provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at our practice and re-view assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist.

“Group supervision sessions seek to provide participants with a safe, yet challenging, space, to consider and address the issues that arise for them when discussing their own, or another participant’s, experience of being a therapist. They provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at their practice and re-view their assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist and doing therapy. Group supervision can be a valuable and enriching experience for all participants since even though the focus may be on a particular supervisee’s account, it is likely that all participants will discover broader issues and concerns that resonate with their own encounters with clients.” Prof. Ernesto Spinelli

All dates: 20th January, 28th April, 23rd June and 27th October
Morning Option: 10am to 1pm
Afternoon Option: 2pm to 5pm

THE LABYRINTH AND THE MASK An Exploration of Nietzsche’s Life-affirming Psychology with Manu Bazzano
Apr 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Manu“To you, bold searchers, tempters, experimenters, and whoever has embarked with cunning sails upon terrifying seas” A course comprising of lectures on Nietzsche’s vibrant thought, with links to Zen, contemporary psychotherapies and philosophies and featuring experiential exercises and meditations.

“What would it be like to apply Nietzsche’s ideas to the art of psychotherapy and, more generally, to our way of being in the world? How can we make creative use of Nietzsche’s thought in our life and practice? Here is a little taste.The first step is embracing naturalism. This means giving primacy to nature and the body over consciousness. The latter needs to occupy, in this naturalistic view, a humbler position. Consciousness observes the body and the complexity of bodily affects and passions and then sends dispatches of this vast and complex felt text. Its relation to the body and the ‘instincts’, consciousness is subordinate. It is an aspect of the instinctual life, one that is not particularly better, more moral, or even fairer. What we call our thinking is also the result of a relationship between natural forces. ” Manu Bazzano

The course will be divided into three parts:

(a)   We will look at the intrinsic intelligence of feelings, emotions and passions, comparing Nietzsche’s breakthrough insights about the Dionysian and the Apollonian dimensions with contemporary notions of eudaimonía or flourishing, developed against more facile notions promoted by the ‘happiness’ industry.

(b)   We will explore notions of time in relation to what Nietzsche calls eternal recurrence, an exhilarating myth as well as a koan (or existential riddle), potentially useful in bringing forth a bold affirmation of existence and one that is intimately linked to a path of self-acceptance and deep appreciation of self-other-world.

(c)    We will sketch two powerful and far-reaching themes from the Nietzschean corpus: 1) morality and its close link with the notion of the self as-we-know-it, i.e. the Cartesian self and its various surrogates and dead ringers; 2) power, reassessed, paradoxically, not as power over others (for Nietzsche a sign of weakness) but as active cultivation of vulnerability and generosity.

Part One: 19th April, 26th April and 3rd May.
Part Two: 17th May, 24th May and 31st May.
Part Three: 14th June, 21st June and 28th June

ADVANCED EXISTENTIAL SUPERVISION with Prof. Ernesto Spinelli
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Spinelli

These 4 Master Workshops provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at our practice and re-view assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist.

“Group supervision sessions seek to provide participants with a safe, yet challenging, space, to consider and address the issues that arise for them when discussing their own, or another participant’s, experience of being a therapist. They provide the opportunity to ‘look again’ at their practice and re-view their assumptions and expectations regarding being a therapist and doing therapy. Group supervision can be a valuable and enriching experience for all participants since even though the focus may be on a particular supervisee’s account, it is likely that all participants will discover broader issues and concerns that resonate with their own encounters with clients.” Prof. Ernesto Spinelli

THE LABYRINTH AND THE MASK An Exploration of Nietzsche’s Life-affirming Psychology with Manu Bazzano
Jun 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Manu

“To you, bold searchers, tempters, experimenters, and whoever has embarked with cunning sails upon terrifying seas” A course comprising of lectures on Nietzsche’s vibrant thought, with links to Zen, contemporary psychotherapies and philosophies and featuring experiential exercises and meditations.

“What would it be like to apply Nietzsche’s ideas to the art of psychotherapy and, more generally, to our way of being in the world? How can we make creative use of Nietzsche’s thought in our life and practice? Here is a little taste.The first step is embracing naturalism. This means giving primacy to nature and the body over consciousness. The latter needs to occupy, in this naturalistic view, a humbler position. Consciousness observes the body and the complexity of bodily affects and passions and then sends dispatches of this vast and complex felt text. Its relation to the body and the ‘instincts’, consciousness is subordinate. It is an aspect of the instinctual life, one that is not particularly better, more moral, or even fairer. What we call our thinking is also the result of a relationship between natural forces. ” Manu Bazzano

The course will be divided into three parts:

(a)   We will look at the intrinsic intelligence of feelings, emotions and passions, comparing Nietzsche’s breakthrough insights about the Dionysian and the Apollonian dimensions with contemporary notions of eudaimonía or flourishing, developed against more facile notions promoted by the ‘happiness’ industry.

(b)   We will explore notions of time in relation to what Nietzsche calls eternal recurrence, an exhilarating myth as well as a koan (or existential riddle), potentially useful in bringing forth a bold affirmation of existence and one that is intimately linked to a path of self-acceptance and deep appreciation of self-other-world.

(c)    We will sketch two powerful and far-reaching themes from the Nietzschean corpus: 1) morality and its close link with the notion of the self as-we-know-it, i.e. the Cartesian self and its various surrogates and dead ringers; 2) power, reassessed, paradoxically, not as power over others (for Nietzsche a sign of weakness) but as active cultivation of vulnerability and generosity.

Part One: 19th April, 26th April and 3rd May.
Part Two: 17th May, 24th May and 31st May.
Part Three: 14th June, 21st June and 28th June

Nine Thursdays from 7pm to 9pm
Fee: £600 for the whole course
