Osha – The work that reconnects


Liz Thompson & Louis Taeijon offering workshops in 2017. We are calling the workshop “OSHA” this is a Hindu word meaning gift to the world.
The work that reconnects is based on the work of Joanna Macy. The course encourages us to live a more balanced life psychologically, emotionally, and physically, and spiritually. Living from the inside out rather than from the outside in. Making changes that help us to maintain our own personal and spiritual life balance. Yet this work is not just for yourself this work is for you and for the world…

About Liz

Before becoming an independent Celebrant I worked in social care and social inclusion for many years. My main training specialities are Person Centred Practice and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. I value working with all kinds of people, whatever your background or lifestyle choices, believing that difference enriches and brings value to our lives.

I am a qualified trainer and have completed the Fundamentals in Psychosynthesis at the London Institute of Psychosynthesis which has enriched my practise as a Celebrant and had an impact on how I develop and deliver training courses, e.g. working in Transpersonal Psychology and Eco Psychology. What has emerged is an exciting and vibrant working relationship with Louis Taeijon, UKCP Reg, Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist in which we are offering continuous professional development (CPD). The context that we are offering is a psychospiritual way of working or as it is also known a transpersonal psychology.

I’m very excited about being able to offer the course and to be working with Louis who has experience in facilitating this course from his time at Cortijo-Romero in Spain. Where he ran the course with John Shiers in 2007.  Our course has emerged due to mutual interest and desire to create CPD programs that will encouraged deeper thinking of the self and our environment. We have both trained and worked with transpersonal psychology in our professional lives. Our unique skill set complimenting each other brings a depth and richness to our work that makes it a little bit different, because what we offer on the workshop reaches beyond the personal, into the transpersonal world.

About Osha

As separate individuals people can feel cut-off and disconnected. The workshop invites you to consider what it means to be interconnected, to live an interconnected and compassionate life. Life with the other and with the world. Were calling this the I-Thou relationship. So the work invites the space for the opening to interconnectedness which opens the possibility to make the changes that we desire to see in ourselves and in our sacred planet.

Often we have conflicting thoughts and feelings about what is good for us or who we really are. This can make life seem like a struggle between the different parts of us wanting different things. The personality is a whole with many parts. Just like looking at the world from the universe, one planet with oceans and landscape, and clouds. The personality, is a whole with many parts, and many parts of the whole exist. Each part is an aspect of the self.

The most significant way to facilitate our growth is to know the different aspects that drive us. Gradually we can then begin to regulate and direct them into a clear expression. According to our purpose and meaning. This workshop is a journey in getting to know that deep connection to your own truth that is within you.

How will we work within the course?

We will be working through Group discussion, Visualisation, Creativity, Drawing, Body work, Time travel, Clay modelling, Ritual and Having fun
