Peer Supervision Group: Being resourceful


PEER SUPERVISION GROUP:

BEING RESOURCEFUL

Are you a psychosynthesis practitioner?  Do you sometimes feel you are operating in a vacuum?  Would you find it useful to share thoughts and get feedback on cases? If so, this is for you!

The intent and Purpose of this supervision session is to explore with the group various ways, strategies, techniques and specific tools we use as professionals, to be resourceful for our clients, by anchoring into our own source of resources: the I, the space of Awareness and Will, free of contents. In order to participate, please be prepared to present a case for supervision and feedback in a peer discussion format, facilitated by a trained psychosynthesis practitioner, through a spirit and mindset of Presence as a foundation of the process of “Explore, Expand, Empower” toward more ‘I’, then anchoring this awareness as a new way of Being Resourceful.

When there is an imbalance between demand and resources, what’s helps as “support”.

How is strengthening support a skill we can develop and how?

Where does the support come from?
Who is supporting what?

Who or what supports me in my integrity as an external resource?

Who or what in myself supports me in my totality?
We’ll explore how support comes from ourselves, from other people and from the environment around us, as a way to enhance ourselves, therefore, our clients.

Furthermore, we will explore how believes they can be comfort zones, limiting the vision and efficiency to support others reaching desired and meaningful goals.

As a Psychosynthesis Guides, we will discuss the meaning of working to generating alternatives, evaluating evidence and putting in perspective, as a process of empowering the client to reach the best performance, by eliminating interferences.
Being resourceful means being anchored into the “I” allowing the power of the Source energizes the personality, transforming contents from limiting to strengths. This strategy allows us to see events from a point of view of

ADAPTATION, FLOW, LEARNING and GROWTH MINDSET, the path toward Resilience.

Be aware of the qualities in your whole, the Self, and affirm:

“I (name) have many resources, I am creative, I am a unity into diversity when I am the Self.”

I’m looking to work with all of you who wish to grow together and increase our professional tools kit as a Psychosynthesis Guides, through an exchange of experiences in a peer to peer supervision.

She raced sleddog professionally for more than 20 years at world championship levels, a sport that brought her in contact with wilderness nature and intense work with beautiful Siberian Huskies and Wolves for more than 30 years, in Europe and North America.

During a series of life-changing events, she resumed her passion for the study of the psyche, concentrating on the Transpersonal aspects, attaining a Masters in Indovedic Psychology as a foundation for subsequent Masters level studies in Psychosynthesis Counseling, Transpersonal Counseling, EcoCounseling (Ecopsychology applied in Counseling) and Psychoenergetics in Counseling. She has specialisations in Green Coaching (Life Coaching in Echopsychology- following a curriculum she developed with a colleague from the Ecopsychology school in Italy), has recently completed a further specialization as a Certified Resilience Practitioner, and is currently studying the “Foundation of Positive Psychology” with Penn University.

When not engaging with coaching clients on-line or in in person in her “natural” setting in the Orobian Alps, she also works as a Psychosynthesis Counselor. Since 2011 she is a volunteer at the paediatric department in the local hospital and conducts training sessions for volunteers working with pediatric patients as well as designing and conducting classes in Ecopsychology at a local school.

Trainer, practitioner and researcher, she brings into Synthesis the reconnection with our Self, through Nature, working in person, with groups, in educational and vocational settings, and on-line.

Certified Psychosynthesis Life Coach with The Synthesis Center (TSC), and Staff Member of TSC, Cris is co-founder and lead instructor of The Synthesis Center’s TransAlpine program currently providing a unique opportunity for Certified Psychosynthesis Life Coach training in the Italian language.

PEER-TO-PEER SUPERVISION: Anchoring into the ‘I’


PEER-TO-PEER SUPERVISION: 
ANCHORING INTO THE ‘I’ 

The intent and Purpose of this supervision session is to explore with the group various ways, strategies, techniques and specific tools we use as professionals to anchor the “new awareness” emerging as we work with clients into the ‘I’, and how we also anchor ourselves into the ‘I’.

In order to participate, please be prepared to present a case for supervision and feedback in a peer to peer discussion format, through a spirit and mindset of Presence as a foundation of the process of “Explore, Expand, Empower” toward more ‘I’, then anchoring this awareness as a new way of Being.

As an example, we may explore how the problem of transference and countertransference can arise as we, as Guides, resonate with our clients through empathy, and how we manage these situations in realtime during the session so that the session closes with the client feeling empowered, rather than disempowered by the transfer/countertransfer process.

Our role as Guides is to immediately step outside this “danger zone” of transference/countertransference, and the accompanying emotional reaction when this feeling arises during the session. We have to be in the neutral and free space of the I/Self and from there, as Observer and Director of the contents and context become the external Self for the traveller (the coachee/client), or as described in Psychosynthesis, we become the External Unifying Center. This process leads to a re-orientation of the client toward him/herself, and by resonating in the sacred space of the Self, the client acquires a new awareness, a new vision of the situation, becoming more resilient and aligned with his/her Purpose. Our role is to enable the anchoring of this awareness into the ‘I’ of the client.

From there, we move onward, holding the space where the transpersonal process of Synthesis occurs, passing from a “fixed” mindset within which we are downloading data (being “stuck”), to a “growth” mindset characterized by the ability to listen and choosing to follow the “Call of the Self” with open mind, open heart, and open will. This is the state of Presencing, described in the Theory U (Otto Sharmer), having disidentified ourself and the client from the content limiting the perspective.

PEER DISCUSSION GROUP Evoking Presence…


Peer Discussion Group:
Evoking Presence, Exploring Purpose:
Unfolding the “I-space” in Service of Self.

PEER DISCUSSION GROUP Evoking Presence, Exploring Purpose: Unfolding the “I-space” in Service of Self

The theme for this session’s conversation is Presence, that quality, process, way of being that when cultivated through Awareness and Will transforms the present moment. Whether we’re evoking Presence as part of our own “work within the work”, holding the space for a fellow Traveler (as Guides are all Travelers too!), or simply being in the moment when faced with the difficulties of life, taking the time for Presence, I feel from experience that developing techniques for Presence to emerge is central to any Psychosynthesist’s path.

It is in Presence, through Awareness and Will, that we come to hold compassionately our old stories/scripts, limiting beliefs, Subs (inc MMS), Psychological Function defaults, and those wounds/traumas we carry.

In this session the intention is to share our experiences of embodying the qualities that inform the “I” that Presence is, well, present! The core  model I’ll be referring us all back (and forward) to is the Egg, and the Field of Awareness from which Presence emerges.

We can group-explore practical methods/meditations on evoking Presence, and share those experiences in-session.

“I’m from England, UK, working part-time as a Psychosynthesis Coach and Hypnotherapist, working with people in a ‘Life Transitions Coaching’ frame for the past c.4 years. 

I live in Nottingham in the Midlands, and I’ve been subjected to the usual suite of Robin Hood puns. So that’s the semi-professional intro out of the way, time for some extras.

My previous career in IT as a business consultant for 12 years, since late 2005, and before making that career choice, I was a post-graduate researcher in ancient environmental and climate change. 

My background prior to that was in (mainly) prehistoric field archaeology, with a big helping of human evolution/paleontology. I loved the research work, especially the field work, as I was (note the was) a mountaineer. Turning a little serious for a moment, I took a pretty big tumble off Ben Nevis, Scotland, in February 2001; I’ve come to term this event as the ‘Call to Self’, my deeply personal, visceral “initiatory event”. 

Surviving that c.800 ft fall planted the seed for the continuing evolutionary path which led me to Psychosynthesis, central to my coming to terms with that life-transforming day and its consequences, and ultimately bringing me into contact with others as a Guide (an relatively recent identification that has at times a curiously numinous quality).

My ‘journey’ with Psychosynthesis began without my even knowing of the existence of Assagioli’s ‘framework of becoming’, through being drawn to Carl Jung’s work, and Depth Psychology in general, in the Spring of 2012. I took a 5-day introduction to Psychosynthesis with the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust in London, and afterwards took a quiet step back from Psychosynthesis. I wasn’t aware that life coaching had a transpersonal element, so when I discovered that life coaching formed part of this year’s International Conference in Psychosynthesis’ agenda, I took a chance…more a leap of faith…booked my place, a flight and a hotel room, and trusted. 

It was in Sicily that I met Didi and Jon, together with a whole bunch of like-minded folks, and took another leap of faith on the journey, to sign up to the Synthesis Center’s Transformational Life Coaching Program.” Since then I have certified, and integrate Psychosynthesis throughout all my work with fellow Travelers, in honoring their own Call of Self.

Besides my evolving Psychosynthesis practice, I have begun co-leading on one of the Synthesis Center’s coaching programs.

A couple quotes that really resonate right now, from seriousness to lightness 

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” 

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
