This transcript of a process-oriented psychology seminar provides a theoretical overview, and then continues on with demonstrations of how to work with individuals and groups. The interactions between Drs. Mindell and the seminar participants show that in order to get to the process, it may be necessary to employ trickster-like ways, based on the fabled, wise trickster of a Native American tribe, who did everything differently. His horse went forwards, for instance, but he rode it facing backwards, thereby taking a new approach.

Review: Riding the Horse Backwards: Process Work in Theory and Practice

User Review  - Kate - Goodreads

This was assigned as part of my work with Interchange (www.radicalcounseling.com) and I loved it. It gets into how one can access different channels of the body to work with clients (or, theoretically, with oneself). It is well written, much like getting an insiders view of a workshop.
