Over the years the Institute has developed a method of facilitated learning that integrates the excitement and stimulation of direct experience with the focus depth and direction that comes from a thorough understanding of ideas. The training environment is not only for the training of the professional, but also, and of utmost importance, for the training of the individual.
Our programmes have evolved over 40 years from the inspiration in experiential learning workshops learned in the early 1970s to the integration of this inner work to outer academic and professional excellence. It provides a road-map for the training and a tried and tested template for psychospiritual development and, at the same time, a practice and apprenticeship under supervision for the application of that which is being taught. We work in groups and build training communities which are reflective of how the world is. In this way the work, whilst being deeply reflective and inner-directed, is always grounded and anchored back into individual’s lives where transformation is experienced as a direct consequence of the course.
We offer a programme that has at the heart of it an in-depth exploration of the inner world of the individual and their existential and soul’s journey; a journey towards the realisation of a spiritual reality as well as the exploration of the psychological disturbances consequent to that realisation. Much attention is paid to the development of Mindful Self-Reflection and Self awareness and of building a compassionate relationship towards oneself and others. The training group environment becomes the sanctuary or container in which profound and sensitive processes can be explored and held with integrity, and where meaningful and soulful relationships can be developed and valued within a community. Throughout the training attention is paid towards the ’embodied’ nature of experience and the capacity to be and stay ‘present’. Through this we come to understand complex inner psychological dynamics and develop the capacity to transform the history of both ourselves at an individual level and that of our forebears. This has value because we often find ourselves as inheritors of a psychological past which leaves us unable to respond to the spirit of our times.
