Lao Tse Press - www.laotse.com/

 Lao Tse Press is dedicated to publishing information about process-oriented psychology. Since our birth in 1988 in Zurich as the Process Press, publisher of the Journal of Process Oriented Psychology, we have endeavored to uphold the highest standards in publishing. We have limited our focus to books on process work: the psychotherapeutic, group facilitation, and conflict resolution system developed by Drs. Arnold and Amy Mindell and their colleagues. Process work, with its roots in Taoism, theoretical physics, Jungian psychology and indigenous spiritual and healing practices, aspires to addresses the full spectrum of human experience with curiosity and respect. Like its ancient Taoist master from whom we draw our name, process work and its publisher Lao Tse Press are committed to helping people from all walks of life follow nature in its joyful, mysterious and disturbing aspects


Alternative to Therapy

by Amy Mindell, PhD

Book Description: The innovative concepts and practical methods of Process-Oriented Psychology (process work)—many of which have never been published—are explored in this highly unusual textbook. The goals of process work lay not in traditional psychotherapeutic theory, but rather in the unique wisdom and path of process, or nature, itself. Each of the 32 chapters represents a "class" in which one of the principles is highlighted and investigated from many angles, allowing the author to present the highly structured content in a playful way that is both attractive and useful to helpers and therapists from many different backgrounds.

Earth Based Psychology
by Arnold Mindell, PhD

Book Description
Drawing liberally from physics, psychology, aboriginal beliefs, and shamanism, this spiritual guide defines, explores, and applies both earth-based psychology and the related idea of path awareness—the innate ability to sense where to turn at a given moment. By drawing together disparate elements of contemporary science and ancient wisdom, it is shown here that new methods emerge of determining the best direction through inner turmoil, relationship trouble, team and community issues, and world issues. Jung's work is taken further and linked with diverse disciplines and wisdom traditions, making scientific ideas accessible to nontechnical readers. Theory and experiential exercises are presented in a simple, imaginative manner, with diagrams and illustrations to strengthen lessons for readers.

 

 


The Dreaming Source of Creativity

by Amy Mindell, PhD

Book Description: Written for professional therapists as well as the interested layperson, this book reveals where hidden sources of creativity and inspiration can be found in everyday life, such as in the body, the environment, material objects, or even daily activities. Numerous stories, exercises, and pictures illustrate this take on creativity from a process work perspective by tapping into art, music, puppets, movement, and more. This inspirational guide to bringing artistic elements into one's life examines dreams, body experiences, and overall life situations.

An Excerpt: "The point of this book is to tap into the generative flow of the Intentional Field and its constantly creative potential, whether we are working with puppets, going to work, relating with others, or simply walking down the street. My greatest hope is that life becomes more magical for all of us - that we make space for the dreaming to hatch and come to maturity in the fabric of our everyday lives..."

A Path Made by Walking

by Julie Diamond, PhD
and Lee Spark Jones, PhD

Book Description: Written for professional therapists as well as the interested layperson, this book reveals where hidden sources of creativity and inspiration can be found in everyday life, such as in the body, the environment, material objects, or even daily activities. Numerous stories, exercises, and pictures illustrate this take on creativity from a process work perspective by tapping into art, music, puppets, movement, and more. This inspirational guide to bringing artistic elements into one's life examines dreams, body experiences, and overall life situations.

An Excerpt: "Process Work is an evolving modality, a 'path made by walking.' Its development is best understood as Arnold Mindell's lifelong quest to piece together the mysteries of human consciousness, physics, and psychology. Starting out as an attempt to incorporate physical experiences and body symptoms into Jungian psychology's primarily dream-based method, Process Work has grown in unforeseen directions. It has become an awareness modality with applications in areas such as organizational and community development, diversity and leadership training, spiritual practice, individual psychotherapy, relationship counseling, and group work."
