What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life
May 16, 2009 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT
Together we will consider the paradoxes that we encounter in the conduct of our brief transit on this earth. Leading a more conscious life brings us to choices which either enlarge or diminish. Our time together will bring a more considered reflectivity to our daily lives. Each person should bring pad and pen for personal reflection. Our objectives will be to:
1. discern how a client’s personal values,philosophy of self and world, profoundly influences his or her mental health;
2. identify the ubiquity of fear management systems operating autonomously in clients and our lives;
3. promote a more considered awareness of the de facto “stories” served by the client, and move toward a more conscious authorship;
4. utilize an inherent desire for an enlarging spirituality to reframe the client’s understanding of self and world; and
5. become more thoughtful oneself around these matters so that one is in a better position to meet a client’s depth and complexity. Non-clinicians are welcome and the discussion will be applicable to non-clinical situations, as well.
Saturday Workshop Participants, for this event we will break for an hour and thirty minute lunch. The workshop will end at 4 PM.
