Life, Life Energy & Grounding with Ken Mellor

Key Elements of Our Fulfilment in Life

A Workshop with Ken Mellor

Thursday 28 September 2017


For many years, Ken Mellor has explored ways to promote fulfilment in everyday life. All his contributions to Transactional Analysis theory and practice since 1975 have supported this end. All are designed for immediate use to expand understanding and to get results.

The workshop will include discussion, shared exercises, and the use of practices designed to open awareness to the significant traces that Life’s presence leaves in our everyday lives.

  • Life is a fifth dimension that gives existence to and sustains everything captured by space and time. It is not directly detectable.
  • Life-Energy, known as physis by Eric Berne, is readily identifiable in our everyday worlds as internal sensations, and external perceptions.
  • Grounding is our best means of promoting its living vitality, and of making the most of all, it has to offer us.

The processes of the workshop provide ways to understand Life, Life-Energy (physis), and ready to use this understanding in both therapies and everyday living.

Key themes to be explored include:

  • Life affects us every moment of our lives. It is Life that gives our bodies  core awareness and consciousness.
  • How we can know Life, though it is beyond the reach of everyday consciousness, i.e., sensory experience and descriptions?
  • Life’s oneness, wholeness, completion, etc. perpetually impact us, drawing us into alignment by being a hidden template of our fulfilment.
  • Life-Energy saturates all aspects of our physical being as it flows through our bodies. Its flow is our experience of aliveness.
  • Grounding in which its flow is the avenue to our health, wellbeing, release from the past, personal balance, and spiritual awakening
