Stephen Gilligan, Ph.DSystemic Trance Work
This new training in Systemic Trance Work (STW) synthesizes generative trance, especially integrating mindfulness and somatic-based consciousness, with systemic work involving multi-level identity systems.
Generative Trance is seen as a fluid and powerful mind-body state where self-identity is created and transformed. STW sees these identity systems as holons—identities that are whole at one level, but just a part of a larger whole at the next higher level. This dual-level sensitivity requires skills of aesthetic intelligence— that is, harmonizing all the parts of an identity field to create an extraordinary performance.
