The larger goal of Deep Democracy is not me changing you and you changing me. But us learning how to relate with each other.

Our school – Arte del Processo and Deep Democracy

Since the birth of our school in 2015, we have been the first training body in Italy offering certified courses in Process Work, also known as Process-Oriented Psychology. This includes training in the transformation and resolution of conflict.  



Understanding the movements of discrimination and oppressive forces.  

Seminar, by Gill Emslie (training days by Sergi Barrientos will follow) 

Partecipation fee: 230€

17-18-19 MAY at Marti (Pisa) 

While being in groups, it often happens that problems of structural discrimination, prejudices and unaware dynamics of rank and power ruin harmony and interconnections between people. An effective and profound communication is the key for a sustainable community. In this seminar, we will learn how to facilitate diversity in a group context, developing wisdom.

Messages and awareness


Every symptom, dream, diversity and conflict, internal and external, has a message for us. We can integrate it or marginalise it. If we can integrate it, our life becomes one of flow and enrichment. If we marginalise it, our life becomes heavy, difficult, conflictual, superficial. We make this choice continuously, every day, all our life, most of the time unconsciously.

Develop the awareness necessary to live more fluidly and with greater awareness.

This is Arte del Processo. Have a good journey!

What is Processwork?

It is a discipline that is both theoretical and experiential, rooted in Jungian, transpersonal and systemic psychology and ancient wisdom traditions such as Taoism.

The father of Processwork – Arnold Mindell – physicist and Junghian analyst, discovered that the same patterns that reveal themselves through our night dreams are also recognisable in our bodily symptoms – once we know how to look for them. From this, a model was developed READ MORE…

Our Philosophy: Deep Democracy

A democracy in which the majority irretrievably wins over the minority is no longer enough for us.

We seek new ways to gain awareness of how we use our privileges and the impact of our behaviour on all levels, welcoming and exploring the value of diversity and bringing social innovation through inner awareness.

for us, being ourselves is an act of social responsibility. Learn more at
