PROCESS WORK IN PROGRESS

A collaborative learning program bringing together learners from around the world to share, explore and extend diverse applications of Process Work.

2023 THEME:

Living in an Unliveable World

There are so many ways this world is unliveable, but do we have to wait for them to change before we can truly live?

Join us and discover with and from others living creatively in the midst of it all.

THIS PROGRAM IS FOR PEOPLE WITH A WIDE RANGE OF LIVED AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE, INCLUDING PEOPLE WHO…

resonate with the question of “how to live fully in what can sometimes/in some ways, be a difficult world to live in?”

are keen to learn from and with people with different lived experiences from around the world

work with change processes, be it one-on-one, in groups, organisations or whole communities

want to deepen their understanding of reconciliation, allyship and structural discrimination

work with processes of belonging, whether that be personal or structural belonging, with others or in your own personal process

are interested in progressing the Process Work paradigm

No previous experience of Process Work is required to fully participate in any part of the program.

THE LEARNING CONTAINER – AN OVERVIEW

Process Work In Progress is an emergent learning program that invites participants and facilitators to learn together through collaboration.

To support diversity in collaboration, our learning container is designed for flexibility, enabling people to participate in a range of different ways – you can chose what elements are right for you.

Part 1

Two-Day Seminar

The program starts with a two-day in-person workshop exploring Belonging in an Unliveable World. Hosted in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia, 24-25th March, 2023.

Part 2

Monthly Seminars

Every month for six months, starting in April 2023, a three-hour online experiential exploration of the program theme, facilitated by Process Workers from around the world, sharing the unique ways they apply the paradigm in their version of an unliveable world.

Part 3

Learning Groups

For those registering for all of the Monthly Seminars, you have the option to join a small learning group (three people) and meet together between each online session to deepen and apply your learning. Experiential practices will be provided from each online session for learning groups to work with.

Part 4

One-to-one Sessions

Work with a Process Work Diplomate in one-to-one sessions to ground the learning in your personal context. A list of Diplomates with fair trade fee options will be provided to participants to ensure equitable access. One-to-one sessions are organised by the participant and the facilitator of their choice.

THE TWO-DAY SEMINAR

 We begin the exploration of Living in an Unliveable World with a two-day in-person seminar in Melbourne, Australia. 

The theme for the two days:

Belonging in an Unliveable World

What does it mean to belong? 

How is belonging and not belonging connected to experiences of unliveability? 

The two days are facilitated by three Process Workers with different lived experiences and ways of exploring belonging, coming together to create a learning space for diverse explorations of belonging.
