Do you ever wonder if the way you act and live is pre-determined? Or are you the master of your life and decisions? Is there an underlying pattern in your life or is it a chaotic series of events?
WHO IS IT FOR
This one-day Life Myth workshop is for people who look for meaning in their personal and professional life. It’s also for people who are going through challenging moments in their life, moments of transition, on the verge of big decisions. People who ask themselves ‘what now in my life/work’, but feel no strong direction or motivation will find this workshop interesting and insightful too. Professionals working in counselling, coaching, tutoring are welcome as well as those interested in personality psychology and personal growth.
WHAT’S IN THE WORKSHOP
Following native shamans, ancient Taoists, and modern psychotherapists, we will explore the driving forces behind our everyday actions and events. What we do, our choices, accidents and events that happen to us, express the basic pattern. It also is our basic inner conflict as well as a source of purpose. We call this pattern, conflict and purpose the Life Myth.
You will learn how to find your Life Myth and how to use it in everyday situations. Sometimes you can even look into the future through the prism of your Life Myth (we will play with this too:))
Exploring Life Myth brings a better understanding of the choices we’ve made and the situations we’ve experienced. It helps to better understand long-lasting or repeating conflicts and illnesses. It also gives, sometimes unexpected, insights into our potential to resolve such conflicting situations. Getting in touch with our Life Myth opens us to creativity and spontaneity.
There will be also a brief theory about history and practice on this topic from ancient to present times.
The workshop is highly experiential, including paired exercises, guided inner work, and experiential case studies, all designed to leave you with practical take-homes, based in your own personal experiences.
The experiential part of the workshop – exercises and case studies, will be based on Process Oriented Psychology (aka Processwork).
Processwork is a comprehensive awareness paradigm that seeks to observe, follow, and support the flow of nature as it emerges and unfolds through people, groups, and communities.
Developed primarily by Drs Arnold and Amy Mindell throughout the 1970s (and ongoing) it combines Taoism, Jungian psychology, communication and systems theory, Shamanic tradition, and quantum physics, into a trainable model that enables practitioners to identify the subtle signals of emergent processes and then help them become more known to the individual or group, such that they increase awareness of self and others.
