PRESENTATION OF THE TOPIC

According to Moreno, the human being is not only a case of psychodynamics and sociodynamics. There is a larger world beyond this understanding, which is defined by Moreno as “cosmodynamics”. Man is a cosmic man.

The tree of life is a cosmic symbol. It is universal symbol all over the world, existing in different continents, nations and religions. It is a tree of wisdom, axis mundi. Its roots are strongly connected to the feeding power of the ground. Its brunches are in touch with the spirituality of the sky. We are inviting you to come together under its brunches and get into a spirit of unitedness in the roots and variability of the brunches.

We are living in unpredictable and chaotic time. We feel the upcoming changes in the air. How do we experience the messages of time, what do we feel?  Are we scared, embarrassed, energized, activated, angry, sorry, aggressive or creative? Shell we use our spontaneity in the way of constructive adaptiveness, being flexible enough for the necessary changes without losing a connection with the roots of stability?  “It is, therefore, through man’s faith in the infinite creativity of cosmos, that what he embodies in a psychodramatic world may one day actually become true” – Moreno says.

Nowadays it seems important to be careful and conscious of changes, which are happening to the psychodramatic method. On one hand, psychodrama is opened to the advantages of the other psychological approaches. We can see a reach experience of combinations of psychodramatic school with analytical, behavioral and other methods. On another hand psychodrama is enriching and renewing trough adapting to certain social groups. In any case the survival of psychodramatic method depends on keeping in touch with the roots, the Morenian understanding of cosmos, true encounter among people, role reversal not only on the psychodramatic scene, but also in our minds, spontaneity, creativity and a presence of the future in us.

The tree of life, connecting past and future, unconscious, conscious and spiritual, roots and brunches will give us resources for the identity of the psychodramatic community. The tree of life, in our way, will give its input for the safety of the world
