Pink or Blue: A Gender Agenda?

An exploration of gender from a deep democracy point of view
with Lisa Foale & Peter Lloyd.

Welcome to an evening exploring gender. Is there such a thing as masculinity? Or femininity? If so what are those male or female qualities? How are we affected by them? Are they universal? Are we programmed to behave as our perceived idea of how our gender behaves? There can be so much pressure on us whether cultural or internalized within us to be a certain way, to emote in certain ways, to relate to anger or sensitivity in a particular fashion, that sometimes we can miss our own nature.

“Gender uncertainty opens up a world of human experience not male experience or female experience. It means as humans we are unlimited in our capacity and interest in being whole, not being split in a gender category that defines us..” Dawn Menken PhD ‘Raising Parents: Raising Kids’.

This discussion will be facilitated from the Processwork paradigm.

VENUE: Avalon@Highwick (11 Highwick Avenue, Claremont)
DATE: Sunday 28th January
TIME: 6-8pm (Arrival anytime from 5:30pm onwards)
CONTRIBUTION: R50

Who knows where the time goes – Exploring Ageing – for all ages

We all age. Usually we notice our bodies as we lose the energy, flexibility and inner energy of our youth. But we can also give up and let go off the drive to live and settle into auto-pilot mode. In the distance mortality knocks on our awareness calling us to our deepest self. As our youthful sense of eternity fades what calls us in our lives? How can the most disturbing aspects of ageing become a liberation or doorway into a new experience of life and living?

In this morning workshop we will explore through movement, sharing and inner work how we relate to our own ageing using Process Work (POP).

August 12th. 9am -12.30. Cost: £10-20. Location: Sunshine Room. Contact: Peter Lloyd email: ptlloyd (at) gmail.com 01309 690665.

Dreams and the Dreaming Process

‘A dream which is not interpreted is like a letter which is not read’  Talmud

Welcome to a morning to explore and share dreams. We all dream every night and have dreams of varying intensity and meaning. In this collaborative evening we will share our dreams, explore different approaches to understanding why Jung and Freud called dreams the royal road to the unconscious. The Greeks turned to dreams for divination, and Mindell the founder of Process Work found that dreams reflect our body symptoms and dreaming process wishing to unfold.

In addition to night dreams, we will explore other aspects of our dreaming – day dreams, sychronicities and other ways the dreaming world can call upon us.

We will explore how our body symptoms relate to the deeper dreaming emerging through what Mindell called our Dreambody. The dreambody affects us in the daytime as well as in night dreams and we will explore where the dream is in the moment.

The dream shows the inner truth and reality of the patient as it really is: not as I conjecture it to be, and not as he would like it to be, but as it is.” CG Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections.

Peter Lloyd is in an Advanced Phase 2 student of Process Oriented Psychology in the UK and has a private practice. He is also an interfaith minister, Findhorn Fellow and former editor of Positive News Hong Kong.

Body Symptoms – finding meaning in our body experiences

Our body is constantly communicating with us. By exploring consciously what our body is saying to us, it can allow deeper messages and meanings to emerge. This mini workshop will be a chance to slow down and discover what could be behind any symptom from a scratch to a chronic illness.

Peter Lloyd and Lea Misan are both Advanced Phase 2 students in RSPOPUK, the British Process Work school.

Rank and Rank awareness

Welcome to an evening to explore and learn about Rank and Rank Awareness.
We all have different ranks depending on context, social factors such as gender, sexual orientation, income, class amongst many. This will be an evening to learn about rank as theory and practice. We all live in a world of often shifting privileges and struggles in our lives and knowing where we have eases helps to open our hearts to others. As well as being very individual rank can also help understand larger collective issues all the way from village politics to global power issues. To be blunt unconscious rank creates resentment so understanding our own privilege has helped me understand conflicts i am more.

Blue or Pink? a Gender Agenda

Welcome to an evening to explore gender. Is there such a thing as masculinity? Or femininity? If so what are those male or female qualities? Are they universal? Are we programmed to behave as our perceived idea of how our gender behaves? There can be so much pressure on us whether cultural or internalized within us to be a certain way, to emote in certain ways, to relate to anger or sensitivity in particular fashions that sometimes we can miss our own nature. Depending on interest in this evening we will also explore topics including the legacy of patriarchy, whether gender identity affects sexuality (or vice versa), the recent decision by Germany to identify a third ‘intersex’ for those of no gender, how our views of gender affects us as parents.

“Gender uncertainty opens up a world of human experience not male experience or female experience. It means as humans we are unlimited in our capacity and interest in being whole, not being split in a gender category that defines us..” Dawn Menken PhD ‘Raising Parents: Raising Kids’.

Take it like a man, don’t cry, don’t cry. 
Take it like a man, hold your head up high. 
Sure she broke your heart, when she said goodbye, 
But you, you gotta take it like a man.

Separation and Loss

The painful Phoenix of life;

using Process work to understand relationship disturbance

“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” ~ Alfred Lord TennysonIMG_0161 copy

Separation can be such a horror, bringing up not just the pain of losing your partner, but also plenty of other unresolved issues in the background like loneliness and regret. By its nature loss can be raw and grief has its own schedule beyond our own wishes. Even if it’s a happy and mutually appreciative ending, there are sometimes unspoken back-currents which take years to emerge. If a partner has passed away then the vacuum of their presence can linger in a very vital and real way. Not only not ‘happy forever after’, but publicly too after being together all the hopes, ideals and wishes are put on the compost pile of life, ready to be recycled into new relationships, bitternesses, fears or ‘never again’.
So is it possible that divorce, separation or loss could be a new beginning and what could be some of the ground rules for that. Could there just, oh so possibly, be some learning for us in what our ex partner accused us of? Is it possible that we can differentiate between things we could improve on, parts where we did our best and then that sense of simply drifting apart despite our best intents.
This will be an evening with no set answers, just a willingness to explore what’s usually a taboo subject. It will also introduce core philosophies of Process Work on Relationship, including working with disturbance, relationship myths and how they affect us, marginalised parts of ourselves and how they wish to be included in our awareness.
