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.

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
