Peter Wrycza, PhDPeter Wrycza, PhD - International Academy for Deep Transformation

Peter Wrycza, PhD

Peter is the developer of the simple yet profound Conversations on the Edge of Silenceapproach to working with individuals, couples, groups, and communities through ‘Generative Dialogue.’ 

For the past 45 years, he has been exploring the prerequisites for deep transformation and natural awakening working with individuals and groups in Europe and Asia. Out of this work (in collaboration with friend and colleague Jan Ardui) has emerged a unique holistic approach to personal and organizational development – ‘the Way of Unfolding’.

This approach, a kind of ‘Tantric Advaita’ embraces the natural unfolding of things through the extraordinary interplay of opposites within the deep wholeness of Life. This work draws on a unique synthesis of the core of traditional Balinese wisdom and best Western practice. For Peter this approach is underpinned by extensive meditation and self-unfolding movement practices.

Committed to supporting transformation and awakening in individuals and groups, Peter has trained, mentored, and supervised coaches and mentors in many countries for almost 20 years. He is the developer of Deep Transformational Coaching, and the Re•Patterning Process – a unique method for exploring and updating life-patterns.

With an academic background in literature, learning, creativity and higher states of consciousness, Peter is a former colleague of Tony Buzan and a graduate of Nathalie Rogers’ Person Centred Expressive Therapy Institute. He has been a major contributor to the field of NLP and his work has been recognized in many countries, including UK, Italy, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Morocco, Indonesia, India, Russia, Canada, and USA.

His current interests cluster around stimulating and supporting a natural Awakening through unfolding inner energy and awareness through gentle ‘Conversations that Matter’.

Peter is the author of Living Awareness, and co-author of Moksha and Living in the Spirit with Luh Ketut Suryani. Co-author of When Performance Meets Alignment, with Jan Ardui, he is currently writing about his experience with ‘innerdance’, in collaboration with its founder Pi Villaraza.

He is the founder of International Academy for Deep Transformation (2012) of the Nirarta Centre for Living Awareness in Bali (1995) – an inspiring location, where East and West meet, for people to change, learn, and grow together, as they unfold inner awareness. When not teaching internationally, Peter is based at Nirarta, leading retreats, seminars, writing, and enjoying Balinese life.

Originally from Norfolk, England, he is of mixed Polish, Italian, and English parentage. An avid traveller, and a curious learner, he speaks fluent French and Italian, with good conversational German and Indonesian. He enjoys creative writing in his spare time.
