Worldwork (WW) was developed by Dr. Arnold Mindell, founder of Process Oriented Psychology or Process Work and colleagues.

Worldwork is both an experiential training seminar that takes place usually every 2 years and is also a small and large group Process Work method/philosophy as explained below.

“Deep Democracy is our sense that the world is here to help us to become our entire selves, and that we are here to help the world to become whole.”

Arnold Mindell

a) Worldwork is an experiential training seminar in conflict work and community building. The seminar provides a unique opportunity for people from all over the world to come together in a powerful forum for focusing on and working with social, environmental, and political issues using group process skills. Between two and three hundred people from over thirty countries participate in these 6 day gatherings. The large staff team facilitates a diversity of learning experiences that include large group focus and interaction, small group meetings, one-to-one sessions and networking groups.

“Deep Democracy is the principle behind a community building process that hears all voices and roles, including our collective experiences of altered states, and subtle feelings and tendencies. It is a principle that makes space for the separable, the barely speakable and the unspeakable.”

Arnold Mindell

b) Worldwork is a small and large group Process Work method that uses Deep Democracy  to address the issues of groups and organizations of all kinds. To resolve reality problems and enrich community experience, Worldwork methods focus on finding and employing the power of an organization’s or city’s dreamlike background (e.g. projections, gossip, roles, and creative fantasy). Worldwork facilitators listen to the land, do innerwork, practise outer communication skills involving role consciousness, signal and rank awareness to enrich organizational life.  Worldwork has been successfully applied to the analysis of, and work with multicultural and multileveled groups, Aboriginal communities, universities, small and large international organizations, city hot spots, in corporations and world conflict zones.
