Due to the coronavirus, many events have been canceled or postponed, and our listings may not reflect those changes. Please check with organizers before making plans.
We like to think of ourselves as purposeful, decisive, and resolute. So when we find ourselves uncertain, confused, and befuddled, it deflates us. Underlying this 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, and 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.
