4 day Workshop: The Growing Edge

Event Cost: 


As human beings, we regularly find ourselves at our growing edge. It may be the edge of awareness, the edge of our skill, the edge of what we can tolerate. This involves a dance between the inner forces that undermine the natural need for growth, and the ability to hold oneself in the unknown and stay open to what might be emerging. Then once something new does emerge, we need the ability to integrate that into our lives. This particularly applies in getting clearer about what psychodramatic practice can offer. One of the potent aspects of psychodrama is that direct experiences are more likely to be integrated into our being by entering the action centre of learning, rather than the content centre of information. This is Moreno’s spontaneity theory of learning in action.

Based on his core philosophy of spontaneity-creativity, Moreno created a set of living principles that are flexible and open-ended enough to be applied in 1:1 sessions, in groups and in life. This means that we need to be flexible and open-ended about seeing how these principles apply in our development as we work at our growing edge. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to explore your growing edge, your role development, your process of learning and what you would like to develop further, both at work and in life.
