Drs. Arnold and Amy Mindell come out of the Jungian tradition and have been doing pioneering work around the world.
Dr. Amy Mindell is in private therapeutic practice in Portland, Oregon and teaches in many countries in the world. She helped developed process oriented psychology in the areas of coma, creativity, and dance. She holds a M.A. and Ph.D. in psychology and is a diplomate of the Process Oriented Psychology Center of Zurich. She wrote Metaskills: The Spiritual Art of Therapy, Riding the Horse Backwards with Arny, Coma, a Healing Journey, and An Alternative to Therapy as well as many papers in professional journals. Her work with art, music and puppets appears in her newest book “The Dreaming Source of Creativity”. Her studies of the feeling skills in therapy, or “metaskills”, are at the core of much of her work.
Dr. Arny Mindell is also in private practice in Portland, Oregon, and teaches with Amy in many places. He is known for his development of the “dreambody” and “process work” (process oriented psychology). He is the author of 19 books in 21 languages, including Dreambody, The Shaman’s Body, Quantum Mind, and Quantum Mind and Healing. Arny has an M.S. from M.I.T., was a Jungian training analyst, and has a Ph.D. in psychology. He is also known in the area of conflict management for his Sitting in the Fire and for his integration of psychology and physics, work on dreams, bodywork, relationships, and for interventions in near death situations.
Amy and Arny are often keynote speakers at international conferences on therapy, psychology, physics, and conflict work and have been on local and national radio and TV in many other countries. They work together as a team, teaching, doing town meetings, and working on conflict resolution and organizational development projects for small and large businesses, cities, and Aboriginal communities. They have been resident teachers at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, Ca. Members of scientific and Aboriginal communities have applauded Arny and Amy’s trans-disciplinary work.
They are avid researchers, and love skiing, running and hiking. They reside part of the year in Portland Oregon, where they give classes at the Processwork Institute with many other colleagues. They live part of the year on the Oregon coast where they do residential seminars and watch whales.
