PSYCHE INTEGRATION

 

Text Box: Psyche opening the Golden Box

Psyche integration evokes the paradox that we are looking to put something together that is already together. It raises the enigma of ‘I’ and ‘me’: who am I to put me together? In psyche integration, there is no guru or therapist to do the job, and no theory dictating what the self or soul might be. What is provided is a structure of experiences, gone through in the company of others. Each form of experience illuminates the others, and each person supports the other participants.

It does all this by weaving together several different practices or forms of experience, each of which corresponds to an intrinsic way of processing experience. Each of the several methods not only gives a form of experience but also a way of seeing what experience means. The practices have been developed from work going back over many years, with which the facilitators have been intimately connected. The facilitators are responsible for the smooth running of the process, but the inner work is done by each person in their unique ways.

Participants identify and explore their own aims. Some may wish to go more deeply into themselves while others will want to go into and understand better the workings of mind in self and society. Others still may want to explore creativity.

It enables people to explore for themselves the fundamental questions of ‘Who am I?’ the making of a soul, and our relations with the past and future. It helps people deal with the stress and confusion of contemporary life. It brings mind, heart and body into better balance.
