An Integrated Systemic Approach to Trauma
This experiential workshop will set out an array of approaches to working successfully with trauma: trauma as experienced in the body, and trauma as experienced in the mind and trauma as experienced in the family, captured through the lens of an understanding of attachment and child and adult development; it will include unconscious and psychoanalytic perspectives on the inner world; mindfulness, and felt presence, trauma and culture, modelled throughout with ideas of how best to enable survivors to navigate their own recovery, all integrated into a systemic perspective that can be translated into work with adults and children, and couples and families.
Zen and Poetry
Bristol Zen Centre are very happy to welcome Jeremy Ryokan Woodcock back for another day of “Zen and Poetry” at Oddfellows Hall.
For centuries haiku writers have expressed the most profound insights of zen,
the stillpoint of the turning world, the heart soft and open to all experience. This is another day of zen practice with Jeremy, an opportunity for zazen, listening to haiku and zen poetry and to sit with haiku as koan practice.
Renga is an exercise in communal haiku and poetry writing. There is the possibility of writing haiku individually and composing renga together, depending on the wishes of those present on the day.
The day is open to all levels of experience. All are welcome.

You are invited to join the Intersubjective Buddha, an occasional group that meets to sit and contemplate the borderlands between psychotherapy and Buddhism, led by Jeremy Woodcock, Sensei and Psychotherapist. On this occasion we will ponder attachment, now so much part of the therapeutic thinking and seemingly understood quite differently in Buddhism where we are often entreated to let go of attachments. How are we to understand these polarities and can we arrive at a deeper experience of attachment as psychotherapists through contemplative practice?
