ProcessMind: A User's Guide to Connecting with the Mind of God

Front Cover
Quest Books, Nov 1, 2010 - Religion - 304 pages
Einstein said, “I want to know the mind of God, the rest are details.” This book is therapist Arnold Mindell’s response. By processmind he means an earth-based experience of the universal state of consciousness that, he argues, pervades all reality. It is perhaps our most basic, least known, and greatest power, combining the nonlocality of modern physics with altered states of consciousness found in peak experiences. What makes this book unique is that it offers some experience of this mind-state to the reader. Mindell does so by connecting cosmic patterns seen in physics with experiences occurring in psychology and world spiritual traditions. He draws together ideas about Aboriginal totem spirits, quantum entanglement, and nonlocality to describe the “structure of God experiences.” Enhancing his clear presentation are around 80 illustrations and 30 experiential exercises based on tested approaches that actualize our deepest, unitive consciousness. Through rational thinking and earth-based, inner experience, the reader can sense how the processmind’s self-organizing intelligence helps with dreams, body symptoms, relationships, and large-group conflict issues. Altogether, the book is a kind of user’s guide to tapping into an immense power that can benefit our own individual life and, ultimately, the world.

About the author (2010)

Arny Mindell developed process work or what is called today, "process oriented psychology" (p.o.p.), in the mid 1970's. Beginning with Taoism, physics and Jungian psychology, by the 1990?s, he expanded process work to include quantum theory and a deeper form of democracy that applied to all states of consciousness for individuals and groups. Arny's recent research and practice has lead to "process-oriented Ecology" integrating large group conflict work with environmental issues. Together with his wife, Amy, and their many colleagues in Portland and around the world, Mindell was the co-founder of the original school of process oriented psychology in Zurich, Switzerland in the early 1980's. Today, the Mindells consult and work as facilitators on community and conflict problems for groups, cities and governments worldwide. They teach process work, give personal therapy and classes in their home city of Portland, Oregon and work in many places around the world. Mindell's books include Dreambody, The Shaman's Body, Sitting in the Fire, and Quantum Mind.
