Self and life exploration workshop - Oct 11 - Nov 22 (7 Tuesdays and one Saturday)

Event Cost: 

This workshop series is designed for anyone who is willing to take the time, and has the time, to focus on what is important to them. The workshop theme of exploration relates to the capacity of the psychodrama method to uncover important elements in a person’s life, areas that may be in a person's blind-spot or out of awareness, and fully take these into account. The exploration may include feelings, intentions, creativity, vision, and purpose. The exploration will take place behind the barriers, the worries and fears, and off the beaten track.

Psychodrama is a group method which focuses on the development of creativity within group participants so that an individual's creativity gets going and produces new results for old problems or produce whole new outlooks of life. Some people come along simply in order to feel creative again in their own life.

In this workshop series you and your fellow participants will spend time stimulating your imagination, and spontaneity, with regards creating significant positive developments in your lives. In the collaborative secure and confidential setting you will have time to develop your capacity to work on the areas of your life that are crying out for change, exploration or attention. If you have been part of the workshops series then during these sessions you will be actively developing your dreams for yourself and your life with artistry, imagination and love.

If you are considering coming along please let me know as soon as possible. If you would like to contact me please use either my phone number or email on this website.

What is meant by acting?

When folks read about psychodrama including drama, which may include ‘acting’, they often become worried: “But I am no actor”. Well, may I ask you if you act like a son when you are with your mother? Do you act like a person in an elevator when in the elevator? Do you act like a dad when with your children?  Certainly there are elements of acting in all these situations, but they also come to us easily, we are well trained. The acting we do in psychodrama is not the acting of the stage, it is the acting of daily life, where we often don’t have a clue, but proceed anyway. Where we feel lost but outwardly seem confident. Where we drive like a formula one driver, listen to music like a fan, where we curse loudly and long about the many and various fully justified complaints we may have of our politicians, bosses, friends, family or lovers. The acting of psychodrama is actually acting as ourselves.
