This is an amazing article, entirely relevant to anyone who has a loved one in a coma. I'm not sure how to categorize it, but might put it somewhere between philosophy and medicine. Even if the person has a Living Will, this "process-work" is important. My Dad had a major stroke a few weeks ago. Just yesterday his docs and family decided to put him on "comfort care" which includes agreeing to remove his feeding tube. Tonight he looked at me directly in the eye, grabbed my hand, pulled it to his lips, and kissed it with an audible "smack." He then smiled brilliantly while maintaining eye contact with me. I've never cried harder in my life. Knowmoore (talk)

This is anecdotal. Process work is largely unrecognised outside of Arnold Mindell's own unaccredited Process Work Centre. In my opinion this page is just advertising for the Mindell organisation, it does not meet NPOV and is not noteable. Lierooreil (talk) 18:47, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

This article appears to be little more than advertising for Mindell's books. Lieroll (talk) 16:08, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

This article is based almost exclusively on Mindell and sourced by his own books. There is a lot of un-sourced point-of-view editing which has been tagged for months. A large amount of material is not sourced at all. The material is almost exclusively primary sourced and unreliable and I have removed it. Felicitatious (talk) 14:57, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
