It's not about me (2) - What I'd love to do

Posted by Michael Gavin on March 25, 2012 at 6:20 AM

“what I could offer, what would I enjoy offering, what I would love to offer, in the way of Training and Professional Development. “


What I would love is a fairly small committed group meeting for a day, or even two days, three of four times a year.  People with some life experience, some professional experience, a curiosity about theory and practice, a spirit of intellectual and emotional adventure and an interest in embodiment and in depth (whether it be the dark depths of Michael Eigen’s Psychotic Core  or the archetypal depth of Jung’s  Collective Unconscious.)



I would love to work with a combination of approaches: supervision and demonstration, close reading of interesting texts, experiential exploration as well as discussion, and some teaching, practicing and experimenting with techniques.


I should love be part of a group that was  interested in exploring the ramifications of transference and counter-transference both as aids and as potential hinderances to  work with people affected by trauma.


It would be great if there are enough people who are interested and available to work in that way to make this a reality.  Obviously I should love that outcome. But ...it’s not about me.

To let me know what you would love, please comment below, join the discussion on LinkedIn, or complete the survey.  If you manage to finish the survey, as a thank you you get the Compassion Satisfaction and Fatgue Self Test and the Self-remebering email series.
