WELCOME

The original therapeutae were people who combined elements of Jewish, Hellenistic, Egyptian, and Christian spirituality. They worshipped a god called Serapis who combined characteristics of many of the Ancient Greek gods. Their main centre was in Alexandria in Egypt. We have taken their name for this group to designate a place where any aspect of spiritual psychology or body-mind-spirit psychotherapy can be discussed.

this Serapis space is very interesting. I was wandering if it would be possible to dedicate a corner of it to group practices that are not explicitly "therapeutic" but have very much to do with curing and healing as they help people to re-think their ways of living and working and to open new paths of individual and meta-individual understanding.

I recently carried out a group counseling intervention in an ICT company with colleagues of mine. It was not easy but in the end it was a success. Very rewarding. It is probably an example of the kind of new therapeusis (how to call it?) that I would like to reflect about. Maybe it has something to do with Rogers' groups (but some research would be necessary for better focusing differences and similarities).

The video (link below) has been produced by one of the participants in the intervention. He presented it in the last day of the intervention, in which we invited the participants to bring something which could symbolically witness the meaning for each one of the many hours spent together. He used many key words we suggested during the intervention.

Relationship.

Found this on a Chogyam Trungpa video…

''The relationship between student and teacher is like a dance…

In relating with the teacher, your critical input and your surrendering work together. They’re not working against each other. The more input you get from the teacher and the phenomenal world and the more you develop, at the same time, the more you question. So there is a kind of dance taking place between the teacher and yourself. You are not particularly trying to switch off…

Reflections on Foolishness.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on September 5, 2017 at 11:50 2 Comments

I sometimes can’t believe how defective I am!! Whilst despairing of myself the other day I remembered a Shinran teaching that I found some time ago. It really made me think and reinforced my resolve to practice.

It is a Pureland teaching about the depth of our sin preventing us from being genuinely good. Our efforts to be decent, caring beings are always based in and therefore contaminated by our self centredness, greed hatred and delusion. This is due to the…

Great Intentions.

  • The power of intentions is a topic that comes up regularly for me and always provides me with food for thought. In a recent service I was struck by the gravity of the Bodhisattva vows that we sing as part of our liturgy. ”Innumerable…
