Letting Go and Holding On: The Role of Story in Holding On and Letting Go in Individuation
September 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
We will explore the dynamics of Holding On and Letting Go as two aspects of a vital and ever-changing flow of beliefs that keeps life fulfilling. Using experiential techniques, writing, and small group sharing we will identify and explore the stories that we live by and how they affect our tendency to constrict or expand. Our process will encourage a bottom up process in which deeper aspects of the psyche can emerge and develop, rather than a top down process in which the ego controls and limits.
