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.

As far as my life goes, it is pretty boring; nothing too exciting or too adventurous. We had a ‘minor scare’ over Christmas, however, but it turned out to be nothing but a change in hormones. Had it come to fruition it would have meant another three years of my life doing nothing but the same thing that I have been doing for the past six years, and boy oh boy, I am so relieved that it was just a scare. You can never be too careful, and at the same time you can’t even plan the perfect time to…

I am currently in Milan - a fine city. This is the commercial hub of Italy, home of many big names and innumerable small enterprises that attract shoppers from all over the world. There is quite a strong sense of energy here. The biggest tourist attractions are La Scala and the Cathedral.

JOHNNY HALLYDAY

Posted by David Brazier on December 6, 2017 at 10:08 1 Comment

Johnny Hallyday died just after midnight this morning.

A vous autres, hommes faibles et merveilleux

Qui mettez tant de grâce a vous retirer du jeu

Il faut qu'une main posée sur votre épaule

Vous pousse vers la vie, cette main tendre et légère

On a tous quelque chose en nous de Tennessee

Cette volonté de prolonger la nuit

Ce désir fou de vivre une autre vie

Ce rêve en nous avec ses mots à lui

Quelque chose de Tennessee

Cette force qui nous…
