 DEATH?? If we follow the signals of people just before they die, they never  seem to die!!?  They dream and even speak about next steps....Sooo, who are we really??  Just normal people, YES, and perhaps timeless spirits!??

A Life Deeply Lived

Dr. Arnold Mindell, author, physicist, and founder of Process oriented Psychology, passed away on June 10, 2024, in Yachats, Oregon.
Born January 1,1940 in Schenectady, N.Y., Arny was the first baby born in New York state that year. In 1964 he earned an M.S. from MIT in applied physics and mechanical engineering, did research at the ETH technical Institute in Zurich Switzerland, and received a PhD in psychology from Union Institute in 1972.
Wanting to understand the nature of people as well as the physical universe, Arny studied Jungian psychology and became a Jungian analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute in Switzerland in 1970. He then developed Process Oriented Psychology (or Process Work) now with over 20 schools around the world. He also wrote 23 books on the subject. He was known for his unique synthesis of physics and psychology, the concept of the "Dreambody" (the connection between our body and dreams), "Worldwork", a method for working with small and large group conflict situations and social issues of all kinds, and much more.
He and his wife Amy have taught Process Work throughout the world and together with colleagues, founded the Process Work Institute school in Portland, Ore., in 1989.
Since 1986 Arny and Amy have had a home in Yachats where they have lived until today and where Arny rejoiced every day at the magnificence of nature and the sea.
He was loved as a beautiful partner, friend and brilliant teacher to thousands of people all over the world, and known for his joyful spirit, passion for research, and deep desire to make the world a better place for all. He will be deeply missed, though he will always be present in the hearts of everyone who loved him.

Celebrating Arny's Life Together


Through both my tears and deepest gratitude for having lived such a beautiful life with Arny, and his birthing of Process Work and this wonderful community, I’d like to invite you to some events to honor and celebrate him. When I woke up the other day, I knew the first date had to be on August 22nd which is our anniversary. I’m thankful to good friends who are helping me create these gatherings. I’m also aware that some of you have already gathered in various parts of the world to honor Arny, and that is so touching to me.
