Deep Memory Process is a practical and highly effective therapy of the soul developed by Roger Woolger which combines active imagination (Jung), bodywork (Reich) and psychodrama (Moreno) with shamanic/spirit journeying and integration between lifetimes. This is derived from the Buddhist bardo wisdom of The Tibetan Book of the Dead.
Introduced as a technique in 2002, Deep Memory Process broke regression therapy from the narrow confines of hypnotherapy and talk therapy, giving it embodiment and live experience through psychodrama and bodywork. It is rooted in yoga concepts of the subtle bodies and shamanism and draws upon Tibetan teachings about death and transition through various bardo or intermediary states, Deep Memory Process has been recognized as a major contribution to transpersonal psychotherapy.
Deep Memory Process Sessions take 2-3 hours. The first half of the session is spent getting the clients’ life story and also uncovering any feelings, emotions and body traumas from the past life. The second half of the session involves healing traumas and reconnecting fragmented parts of the soul. This may include reuniting family members, loved ones, friends and tribes in the bardo, (spirit world.)
The client is encouraged to dive deep into their feelings/emotions and fully express them during the session. DMP therapy can help us to live more in the present; by adopting our “shadows”, understanding life situations, increasing synchronicity in life and helping us to live our life closer to our soul’s purpose. It has been recognized as a major contribution to transpersonal psychotherapy.
