A time I experienced Collective Flow/ Team Flow
I’ve experienced flow in team sports during some field hockey games (11 players on the field, several off plus a coach).
In a design 5-person team I was involved with at the end of a 4 week intensive on sustainable community design. We were struggling to agree on how to present our design, with some of us reluctant to use powerpoint or whiteboards. A change of physical space was recommended, at which point new ideas emerged. These sparked other ideas and by the end of it, we had developed an embodied presentation through which and with which viewers could walk while experiencing and engaging with different aspects of sustainable design.
Group processes – some processwork group process where the group is deliberately polarized around a conflict. Group sizes vary below about 30. I suspect flow is entered when skillful facilitators find ways to unfold the conflict and deepen into emerging and unknown, generally personal, aspects of the conflict.
My passionate work...
I’m passionate about human kind’s continued push, and capacity to push, the edges of the ‘known’ world – physically, emotionally, mentally, holistically. I’m fascinated and intrigued by our relationships & the space in between ourselves and others – other humans, other creatures, the animate and inanimate world. I’m into technology, cognitive & neuroscience, processwork.
What attracted me to joining the Flowing Tree Research Team, I am fascinated by flow states and living in ‘flow’, both from experiential perspective and research perspective.
The methods and tools that I most frequently use are: Authentic Movement, Focusing, and Process Work
Education: Life experience, Processwork Diplomate
