Karo Miura 

   Having lived in Mexico for over 10 years, Karo had the opportunity to support street children and provide grief care for women who lost their loved ones. Since returning to Japan in 2003, she has been involved in trauma care for children and adolescents, and has experiences in counseling as a clinical psychologist with people of a wide range of age groups, nationalities, genders and sexual orientations. 

  Since 2018, she has immersed herself in coma work, based on process-oriented psychology, provided psychological care to families and deepened her practical knowledge of "altered states of consciousness (distinct from everyday consciousness)". Her life work is "coma work" in a broad sense, which facilitates exploration of the meaning of life for all people, by awakening to the unique powers and "personal myths" that lie dormant within us. 

   With more than 12 years of experience living abroad, Karo is at home with diverse population and can provide sessions in English, Spanish and Japanese.

ABOUT

aboutus

comawork.org

     "You are not a drop in the ocean, but the ocean in a drop." Authored by Rumi, the 13th-century Islamic mystical poet, this small sentence expresses the essence of our existence in a simple yet profound manner.

​      In contrast, our when our life is as busy as a spinning wheel, we may lose sight of our very existence and be struck by a feeling of despair. Such a moment may be when the door that invites us to a deeper existence opens.

​     comawork.org, using the perspective of deep psychology, aims to support each individual, even during those wheel-spinning times, to awaken to "the ocean in a drop" or the "Self (the "Bigger Us" with unique and often unexamined powers)" that sleeps in the deep sea of our psyche.  Let us open ourselves and rediscover the meaning of life.

TWO DISCIPLINES COME TOGETHER TO SERVE DIVERSE GOALS

Process-Oriented Psychology

  • Based on the basic stance of Process Oriented Psychology, founded by Arnold Mindell who was a Jungian analyst, we support people in their life paths and true sense of fulfilling life regardless to what state of consciousness they are in.

Process-Oriented Comawork

  • The principles of Process Oriented Psychology form the basis for Process-Oriented Comawork: a powerful method of establishing communication with people who are in special states of consciousness, including coma, dementia or delirium.

  • Talking and touching the body delicately while paying close attention to and confirming the feedback (response), we try to connect with the person in such states of consciousness.

  • ​These techniques have been further refined to reach out to the families and friends of the affected patients, who have their unique set of challenges and concerns.
