Workshop 1 - Relating

Explore your relationship with yourself and what it means to be 'you' and gain new perspectives and fresh options on how to manage challenging relationships 

In this first workshop we look at our relationship with ourselves and our relationships with other people.

To help us look  more deeply at ourselves we reflect on our names - our name after all is a representation of who we are. But how did you get your name? What does your name mean to you, what do you associate with it, what's its history, who uses your name and how do they use it? Perhaps you dont use your given name anymore, perhaps you call yourself something different. And if so, why? using creative techniques , we explore our selves of 'self' and what it means to be 'you'.

To explore our relationship with other people we use a kinaesthetic and visual way to provide an opportunity to externally represent ourselves and our relationships with other people that always uncovers new perspectives and fresh options on how to manage ourselves in challenging situations. 

In each workshop, in support of the main theme, we introduce a variety of tactile and creative techniques that provide prompts or metaphors to help you explore the topic and provide the mental stimulus to find new associations and insights that develop new pathways of thinking. 

Every workshop also includes an activity that takes us outside to get some fresh air and feel the power of nature and the perspective it gives us. We use nature and creature ideas as another medium to experience how movement aids the thinking process and how changing our environment supports our ability to reflect. 

Workshop 2 - Influences 

Explore what's influenced you, where your beliefs and values came from and how your experiences have helped shape you. Uncover what is still serving you well and what is getting in your way

Workshop 3 - Faces 

Angels and Demons

Explore the faces you choose to show the world and the face you choose to keep hidden. Release your shadow-energy back into your life in a positive way. 

This workshop centres on exploring what has influenced us over our lives to date. Where have our beliefs and values come from and they still serving us well? What are we still carrying around with us that we are no longer consciously aware of, but may be causing a feeling of burden or 'weight'. Depending on the workshop we select from a range of techniques such as the following. 

We explore gender and where our sense of being a 'girl' or a 'boy' came from and what expectations that puts upon us. How has this affected our behaviour over the years and what might we have moved away from and what might we still be clinging to that is no longer helpful

Our favourite story as a child, or the books or films we were drawn to tell us something about ourselves, but we rarely explore what that is. Here, we have the time to think about the messages we were attracted to and briefly capture them in our own 100-word story, and we build upon this new insight to creatively explore how it's showing up in our lives today. 

Our life experiences also influence who we are today and using a wonderfully simple and creative technique we capture, in one place, all our greatest experiences be they happy or not so happy. This hugely cathartic expression of all that has gone before helps us to see our resilience, our ability to overcome, recognises our strengths and acknowledges our happiest moments. And it opens up an opportunity to look at what, if anything still needs to heal, what we are still carrying around with us and what we can now safely let go of.

All of us, probably, have 2 faces. The external persona , that behaves and speaks in a certain way, that conforms to a set of rules, that externally expresses the beliefs and values we live by. However, we all have a hidden face, a shadow-self, that is often a lot less nice, less forgiving, less kind and that we can often hear as our inner voice. And there is nothing wrong with this. It's normal. But it can also be exhausting. If we are struggling so hard to keep the dark side of our shadow-self hidden, it is energy that we are not able to expend in any other way.

 

Using creative techniques we help you to elaborate on the face you show the world and help you notice and acknowledge the face you keep hidden and provide you with an opportunity to bridge the 'gap' between the two or merge them to become 'one whole' and release the shadow energy back into your life in a positive way.
