The Inner Camino Workshops are based on and have been prompted by the recent publication of the book, “The Inner Camino”. A number of people contacted the authors, Sara Hollwey and Jill Brierley, to ask if there would be a follow on in terms of the practical application of the concepts in the book. The workshops are based on a synthesis of eastern spiritual practice and western psychological principles. Sara and Jill teach how to combine the spiritual, the psychological and the political in a grounded and practical way. The series offers a simple methodology that teaches how to mindfully view our lives from an entirely different unhooked perspective. It was Einstein who proposed that in order to solve problems we need to change our consciousness from the one that created these problems in the first place. Sara and Jill help people to identify what may be blocking them from moving forward into this new consciousness. Throughout the Inner Camino Workshop series they introduce a language and practical strategies for embarking on this journey. The first workshop is on 16th and 17th June in Dublin and is called 'Power, Rank, Diversity and Adversity'. The politics of power are at the root of much human suffering, both at the personal level and in the organizations where we work. A society without rank and power differences is not possible. These differences are not in themselves bad, but the potential unconscious abuse of this power is. We know that with greater self-awareness and interpersonal skills such abuse can be minimized. In this workshop you will first discover ways to connect with your own inner strength or personal power, before exploring the power dynamics around you. Through experiential exercises and practical skills you will become more conscious of the often hidden strata of rank, power and diversity. With increased understanding of how power and rank are wielded, you can gradually reduce any toxic or oppressive effects, and promote an atmosphere of cooperation and co-creation in the organization. This is also the foundation for building a strong sense of team spirit that brings engagement, equality and creativity. The workshops are based on the practice of ‘stepping out’ of whatever situation a person is in and developing their ability to observe, and in doing so, become a little less emotionally triggered. This in turn opens up a space for new ways of thinking, being and relating to the particular situation. The workshops are suitable for people working in organisations or people who are on their personal exploratory journey. Sara Hollwey (Reg.Psychol.P.S.I; MIAHIP; MIACP; Dipl.PW) is a clinical psychologist running Personal & Professional Development training in the School of Psychology at University College Dublin. She has a private practice with individuals, couples, families and groups, and trains and supervises with Inner Camino curriculum. Jill Brierley (UKCP; Dipl.PW; Accredited EMDR practitioner, ret.) worked in private practice for 20 years with individuals, couples and groups. Jill now trains and supervises students studying with the Inner Camino curriculum. Please contact Helen O’Connell at for further information and bookings. Closing date for bookings for the first workshop is 6th June. Cost is 250euro for two days.
