We like to think of ourselves as purposeful, decisive, and resolute.
So when we find ourselves uncertain, confused, and befuddled, it deflates us.
Underlying the experience is a futile struggle to become the single-minded people we imagine ourselves to be. But we are more complex, and interesting, than single-minded!
Symbolic characters live within us who are at once adults and children, men and women, wise people and fools. They are the mother and father, the doctor and patient, the hermit and party goer, the saint and ruthless criminal. Everyone in our life drama holds part of the truth.
This workshop will help you:
- Live on friendlier terms with those characters and discriminate their creative aspects from their destructive aspects.
- Shed light on unexplained fears.
- Clarify your life’s direction.Bring a writing journal, a comfortable pen, and a playful attitude.
The workshop is an expansion of part of Felix’s book, The Pebble and the Canyon: Reflections on Composing Your Life.
Felix’s book will be available to purchase in hardcover at the workshop, or you may order it at your local bookstore, or visit Amazon.com to purchase it in either hardcover or as an ebook.
