THE LEADER AS MARTIAL ARTIST

Arnold Mindell describes "The Leader as Martial Artist" in his new 2014 preface: "Here you will find my first introduction to Deep Democracy, as the core of organizational process. Here is where you will find a basic and today, still completely relevant application of field theory, how it connects with Taoism, and “time spirits”. The stress upon awareness in the midst of psychological and political turbulence is timeless. We are especially thrilled to be able to republish the “The Leader as Martial Artist”. All of us here at DDX after having read the book, resonate with the following quote of Mindell updating this 3rd edition: “If I was a Taoist and lived hundreds or thousands of years ago, and found the Leader as Martial Artist, I would leave my quiet monastery. Then I would make “worldwork” as described in this book, my next step.

Overview

 

Deep Democracy, the inherent importance of all parts of ourselves and all viewpoints in the world around us, is introduced as the concept that fascilitates conflicts in relationships, communities, and the world. Skills and attitudes needed in situations of chaos, attack, transformation and conflict are provided, and examples from all over the world illustrate the theory.

Meet the Author

Arnold Mindell, Ph.D., a graduate of MIT and the C. G. Jung Institute, Switzerland, is the author of over 20 books including Riding the Horse Backwards (with Dr. Amy Mindell, Lao Tse Press, 2001), Dreambody (Deep Democracy Exchange, 2011), The Shaman’s Body (Harper San Francisco, 1993), Quantum Mind (Deep Democracy Exchange, 2012), and ProcessMind (Quest Books, 2010).

He is known throughout the world for his innovative synthesis of dreams and bodywork that integrates Jungian therapy and group process, with studies of consciousness, Taoism, shamanism, quantum physics, and conflict resolution.

In the 1970s, Mindell began to develop Processwork, also known as process-oriented psychology.  His work has given rise to a new paradigm with applications in a diversity of areas including individual psychotherapy, personal meditation practice, medicine (including coma and near-death experiences), large group and change management processes, and environmental issues.

Dr. Mindell travels widely in the US and abroad with his partner and coresearcher, Dr. Amy Mindell, holding workshops, seminars, and making frequent appearances at professional conferences and on television and radio shows.  They live in Oregon, and work as consultants and facilitators for groups, organizations, cities, and governments worldwide.
