A Life in Balance: Using a Wellness Wheel for Health and Healing
A healthy life balance encompasses much more than work and home: we must holistically balance our physical, emotional, intellectual, financial, social, and spiritual needs for optimal health. In this workshop, we will look at the meaning of wellness and identify creative ways to add balance and calm. You will create a current and future wellness wheel based on your unique circumstances and goals.
Grief & Loss Workshop
Loss comes in many forms: the loss of loved ones through death, divorce, immigration, or the end of a relationship, loss of career in retirement, loss of place in relocation, loss of health, loss of finances, etc. This workshop, for those experiencing loss of any form, will use a dynamic, interactive approach to explore Worden’s 4 Tasks of Mourning.
Adults & Teens (Sunday afternoon?)
Psychologist Carl Jung described our shadow as the “part of ourself we rather not be.” Our shadow is often hidden from us and a part that we project onto others. Often, our shadows are parts of ourselves that have been wounded as children, which we try to protect through addictions and other behaviors. In this workshop, we will start from the premise that ALL of our parts are worthy of love, and that true self love means looking compassionately at the totality of who we are.
Through the use of intuitive collage, we will begin to learn about ourselves, and explore the parts we show the world and the parts we like to hide. We will begin the process of identifying shadow parts and looking for their hidden gifts, while reflecting on our inner self that desires to be shared with the world. By identifying and bringing shadow parts into the light, we can meet unmet needs and lessen the hold they have on our lives. We can become whole.
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”
— Carl Jung
The Journey to Self Love is truly a journey of self-knowledge. Subsequent workshops will address other topics in the journey to loving ourselves, including identifying needs, finding one’s voice, cultural messages, and others.
