Yearning for the immensity of the ocean: spirituality and connection in therapy, coaching and everyday life

With Dr. Asaf Rolef Ben-Shahar
17-19th August 2013 – Stockholm, Sweden

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, instead teach them to yearn for the vast immensity of the ocean
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Connection between people allows for one of the most immediate bridges into the wider field, into the spiritual realm. When we are able to truly be present to another – and to ourselves, we invite a greater presence. But can we think deeply, connect meaningfully and be grounded in reality while still being open to spirit?

Can we find connection to ourselves, the other and spirit without falling into the traps of spiritual-pop-culture and spiritual fast-food?

In these three days we will together get lost in the search of the place of spirituality within human connection. Within the framework of relational body-psychotherapy, and specifically Integrative-Mindbody-Therapy, we will look for ways of enlivening our interactions. Through trance and dance, touch and therapeutic work, explorations and practices, we shall open to spiritual connection that is both embodied and deepens the therapeutic human connection.
We will practice ways of enriching and deepening our engagement with ourselves and others, and be reminded of the power of community and of contact.

This workshop is for people who work with people – psychologists and psychotherapists, coaches, group facilitators, teachers and healers, who wish to bring more spark and magic into their work and their lives. When we are inspired, we are at our best, and this is just what we will do: practice disciplined inspiration.

Dr. Asaf Rolef Ben-Shahar is a husband and father, relational psychotherapist, writer and teacher, working worldwide in creating communities that matter.
