The activities of The Lifwynn Foundation are based on the research of Trigant Burrow, an early American psychoanalyst. Burrow introduced group analysis in the nineteen-twenties, a forerunner of group therapy and other group approaches. It was a scientific investigation of the causes of human conflict and alienation in which the feelings and motivations of the investigators provided the material to be investigated. Burrow and his co-workers recognized that the societal pathology they were examining was embodied in themselves as individuals and as a group. They developed the ability to observe the disorder within their own interrelational processes, and find a healing response within the observation itself.
