Sit with us in this transformative fire.
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 Processwork, also known as Process-Oriented Psychology. This includes training in the transformation and resolution of conflict.
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.
Whilst all these traditions and schools of thought may seem very different at a glance – they are in fact all united by a common thread – an understanding of the nature of LIFE AS A PROCESS – and the experience of how healing it is in any situation – when we are able to read and include the underlying process – such that ALL the different elements are included and all voices are welcomed.
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…
