Working with Unconscious Forces:
Understanding & Using ‘Potential Space’ To Deepen Process
“My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance –
and charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.“
– Rainer Maria Rilke

The view from outside our training room on the Costa Brava in Spain.
Our practice with and experience of depth work informs us that it is the unconscious forces of our character that thwart our conscious ‘best efforts’ to change, heal or grow. These nonverbal forces are often an unconscious form of communcation to others.
This training year helps practitioners better understand and appreciate ‘what it takes’ to get below the surface of the ego’s conscious efforts to maintain itself, and to enter to the realm of rich potential in the unconscious – the ‘not-yet-known’.
