Arnold Mindell, MS, PhD, is an American therapist, author, and founder of Process-Oriented Psychology, a form of transpersonal psychology. He is known for his blend of quantum physics, dream analysis, bodywork, shamanism, and Jungian therapy called Processwork.
Dr. Mindell provides an overview of process psychology and its relationship to the ancient Chinese concept of the Tao. He describes his approach as a "meta-psychology" which incorporates dreamwork, bodywork, relationship work, movement, family systems, spirituality, and global work.
What if you could dream 24 hours a day, even while awake? According to innovative psychotherapist Arnold Mindell, Ph.D., we already do. The seeds of dreaming arise in every moment of the day, in body symptoms, problems, relationships, subtile feelings, interactions, random thoughts, and fantasies.
Mindell, the author of “Dreambody” (1982) and an experienced shaman who has encountered African, Native American, Australian aboriginal, and Indian Hindu healers firsthand, outlines the process of accessing one’s “dreambody'” and developing a shamanic approach to everyday life.
It is not a stretch to say that The Quantum Mind and Healing is quite probably Mindell's most important and best work yet. In it, Mindell explains that you can use the discoveries of quantum physics to access your body's own intelligence and self-healing abilities.
In his latest book, Mindell expands on his earlier concept of the processmind as he develops the notion of space–time dreaming or “dance of the ancient one” in his rigorous efforts toward the elucidation of a ToE (or theory of everything).
