with Hilde Knottenbelt

No matter how skilful we might become at turning our attention to the present moment as facilitators, group leaders, therapists, coaches, and co-creators, we can never capture 'presence' as an artefact, to be stored up for later use. Presence remains a thing of the moment: ephemeral and emergent, requiring our attention and intention, and a commitment to enter the unknown.

In response to migration and refugees, Angela Merkel opened the German border and Donald Trump is putting deportation and building a big wall on his US Presidential ‘to do’ list. Here in Australia, a third of us were born overseas and we are said to live in one of the most successful multicultural nations in the world. Yet successive Australian governments detain asylum seekers off shore, despite clear evidence of the damage this is doing.

This evening session is an invitation for us to consider our experiences, impulses and challenges in coming to grips with our country’s approach to migration, refugees and people seeking asylum. Aspects of the psychodrama method will be used to help us build our connections as we discover more about the things that matter to us.

We live our lives in a busy, worldly, multicultural city on a blue planet at the edge of the galaxy. And while many of us are not religious, “sacred” experiences  in our everyday lives can often delight and sustain us.

In this experiential workshop you will be invited to reflect on moments in your life which you might call sacred. There will be a chance to participate as some of these experiences are explored in action. You are likely to come away with an enriched view of yourself and others and our inner worlds.

11-13 September (3 days)

Many groups face the challenge of creating a culture in the world that will enhance our development, and be a community of learning, where there is mutual respect and interest. For creativity to flourish in a group, attention needs to be paid to the emerging interpersonal dynamics. If these are anticipated, valued and understood, the likelihood increases of individual and group purposes being achieved.
