THE ROOTS, THE MISSION, THE PATH
The school of Arte del Processo was founded in 2015 by a team of dreamers; Melania, Monica, Angelica, Genny e Samuel - holding between them a rich diversity of experience and professional skills. United by a shared passion for Process work they shared the desire to bring home to Italy this innovative approach to life and to change. Ours is a grassroots school, founded, not by teachers, but by students who are also members of the organising team of the school. Like any living thing, both our organising team and our school are in a continual process of evolution.
In awareness of the historical significance of the huge challenges we are seeing today to the protection of our own sacred national Constitutional democratic values, we present Processwork and its method of process-oriented facilitation as a precious instrument for raising awareness and offering support for both current individual and collective dynamics in our society. We believe that the richness and practical nature of Processwork’s theory and code of ethics together with its versatility and efficacity as a tool for facilitation, are ingredients that together can offer great inspiration and help for any one of us who would like to contribute to the creation of a society and of a culture grounded in a deeper democracy.
As a school of awareness and of deep democracy, all members of the school are encouraged to actively participate and to take the initiative, finding ways to contribute to the community of the school and to the relationships within it, and to join in as part of this grassroots project to the process of experimentation and of learning together how to employ the ethical and theoretical values, attitudes and skills required to build a process-oriented community.
Thanks to our team of highly specialised international teachers we can guarantee a level of teaching that reflects their personal and professional commitment to Processwork and that is both serious and full of the enthusiasm that characterises the way they share and teach from what they live and know. The proposed path aims to teach how to follow the wisdom of nature , manifesting in things that ‘happen to us’ and in the concrete challenges of everyday life, as well as in the subtle signals, and dreams and in the emotions that precede and accompany them. Developing such awareness and intervention skills allows us to:
- Develop curiosity and trust in the aliveness of an emerging process , and in ourselves, and our feelings.
- See a useful resource within any problem or discomfort, be it physical, emotional, relational, organisational or environmental.
- Unveil the hidden message in any significant experience to access its creative potential and its evolutionary significance.
- Evolve towards a holistic understanding of ourselves and of our relational dynamics and of the forces at play in the system.
- Be more fully ourselves in order to flow with change.
- Build genuine and deep and collaborative relationships , using our awareness of the ways in which we are privileged, and of any role in which we hold power in some way, including our own style of leadership.
- Explore and transform tensions, conflicts and altered states , our own and those of others, in ways that are characterised by the fostering of respect.
- Integrate the concepts and practices learned within any other discipline or professional skill set with which there is a compatibility of purpose and of values, improving their applicability and effectiveness regardless of the context or subjects involved.
This training enables professionals to facilitate a deeper democracy, both within ourselves and in our external environments, in support of personal and collective evolution and change. This approach both contains and includes the ways in which we are all different whilst also transcending those very differences.
