Reflecting on the Self
A series of three Saturday morning workshops that uses psychodrama for exploration, change and healing the Self.
“It isn’t the mountains ahead that wear you out. It’s the grain of sand in your shoe.” - Proverb
Psychodrama is based on the ancient art and healing power of drama, role play and symbolism. It is a creative and deep psychological method that has been developed by J.L.Moreno who believes that spontaneity and creativity are our most important resources in life to facilitate personal and collective change, healing, transformation and growth. It can heal transgenerational trauma and aims to bring healing and growth to the individual and their communities.
A psychodrama is born and created in the moment, in the ‘as if-ness’ of the here-and-now, relying on the director’s guidance and the collective work of the group. Nothing is rehearsed, designated roles are given to members of the group and the energy of spontaneity is released. Acting out our hopes, fears, and dilemmas, can be cathartic, free up blocked energy and lead to insight and resolution.
Psychodrama aims to connect you deeply with your own process, your inner world; and through action methods, drama and role taking, enables you to tap into your individual and collective unconscious, to help reclaim lost parts of yourself or discover new dimensions. It draws on your spiritual self to regain your personal power and lead a balanced and harmonious life.
This is a closed group; participants will need to attend all three workshops, which helps to deepen the individual and collective process.
