Working with People in Coma, Vegetative States (UWS), with Dementia or in Dying Processes in Remote States of Consciousness 

Just because people fall silent does not mean that they no longer communicate, nor that they lack consciousness, or that we cannot relate to or communicate with them. As any anyone, a person in a coma, vegetative state, after a stroke and other neurological disorders, with advanced dementia or in a dying process, people need company and support. They go through deep inner processes of their lives and go through existential experiences in which we can reach out to them, communicate with and support them.  

Processwork, developed by Arnold Mindell, is an awareness based approach to individual and collective change and also offers a broad of theory and methods in working with people in remote states of consciousness.  

Beyond learning how to relate to people in remote states of consciousness you broaden and deepen your communication also with people in your everyday life!
