Diversity, Conflict & Community Building

Workshop with Bill Say, M.A.

April 22, 10am-5:30pm


*Practice the Worldwork model of processing world, social and local issues

*Practice role awareness to resolve conflicts and enhance understanding

*Learn a model of rank and power that accounts for their fluidity, context and your own personal power!

World Work, created by Arny and Amy Mindell, is processwork applied to small and large groups, communities and organizations, international events and earth based problems. It’s been used to address global tensions, war-like conditions, organizational change and a full spectrum of diversity issues around the world including with UN organizations, non-profits and community groups.

Under Our Skin

Addressing Internalized Oppression

For People of Color

Innerwork and Group Approaches

With Bill Say

December 29, 10-5:30pm


As well as external forms of oppression such as institutionalized racism, people of color may also face related self-criticism, self-doubt, and issues including depressive moods and low self-esteem: internalized oppression. These processes can impact physical, mental, spiritual, relational, familial and communal well-being as well as one’s sense of empowerment, confidence and pride.

In this workshop we’ll come together to learn, grow and connect with each other. You’ll have the opportunity to practice Innerwork methods to address internalized oppression and co-create group approaches for greater awareness and wholeness.

The Innerwork and group work methods come from Mindell Process Work which has been practiced in many community settings worldwide.

Bill Say, MA, is a Korean Japanese American and Process Work Diplomate. He teaches at CIIS, trains and consults on diversity matters with non-profits and community organizations and has conducted a private coaching practice for many years. His website is: www.billsay.com

Annual Winter Intensive in Process Work

January 20th – February 21st, 2019

Process Work Institute, Portland Oregon

The course offers a unique opportunity to learn Processwork in an intensive format and within an international group setting. The course includes Processwork’s many applications and its most recent developments, and it is designed as an adult learning event. Participants will learn and study together by means of theory, experiential exercises, and group processes. Since the course attracts students from many nationalities, ethnic groups, and religious backgrounds, issues such as multiculturalism, diversity, and community building are part of the learning experience.

Plus, it will be my first time teaching in the Intensive!
