w/ Gary Reiss PhD at the Apricot Centre  May 3-4 2014  Essex/Suffolk

Bringing awareness to natural and dreaming processes can help lead the way towards building a world based on economic justice and well being for all. ‘Potent Pathways’ helps us explore how we can live in ways where economic wellbeing, passion and meaning flow, whilst at the same time taking care of the world.  

The present economic crisis has generated much suffering, insecurity and fear. ‘Potent Paths’ brings together ancient mystical wisdom, with powerful (‘process-oriented’) psychological techniques to reveal how your dreams and dreamlike experiences can guide you down an easier, more direct path to ‘wealth’, and how to utilise this create more meaning in your life. Wealth is explored in the wider context of a connection with abundance (ecology, eco-justice, right livelihood, wellbeing, community relationships, good food etc..)

Using practical exercises and experiential work we will focus on:

  • Creating an abundant, sustainable life path and world
  • Abundance, economic justice, and world change
  • How our relationship to money and wealth is  connected to central myths in our lives. 
  • Adding "dreaming" and "non-doing" to traditional methods of planning and ‘effort’ in making money. 
  • How psychological and spiritual traditions can open up the flow of money in ways that are meaningful in making our lives richer not only in terms of £$s but also towards fulfillment and well-being. 
  • Tools to deal with money issues in relationships and in the world with more clarity and compassion.

‘Potent Pathways’ will give you time and space to explore dreaming and awareness-based pathways to creating wealth, towards ‘right livelihood’ work feeding wellbeing and nourishing community and environment. Gain tools and methods for unblocking ourselves to enjoy more abundance, richer relationships, and discover the conscious use of wealth to change the world.
