To all those out there who want to break the cycle of trauma..hola!
“A well-thought-out story doesn’t need to resemble real life. Life itself tries with all its might to resemble a well-crafted story.” - Isaac Babel
The intent behind the workshop is to restore your connection with yourself and consequently your story. The aim is to challenge the old narrative that has been given to you as conditioning and learn to construct from a place of understanding what is your optimum wellbeing.
As a protagonist of your own story, I will work with you to support your healing through investigating your personal history and the complex narrative structures that created your unhealthy conditioning and patterns of behaviour that don't serve your health.
We will delve into understanding trauma on the individual, collective and ancestral level, the types of trauma and how to come to life from a trauma informed place.
The focus is to put on the key narratological aspects - genre, author, text and the audience - as those elements represent the core of your story. The ultimate goal is to show how this theoretical vehicle functions on your own personal healing.
Deconstruct The Narrative workshop is delivered through a range of therapeutic approaches including but not limited to: creative performance psychological coaching, integrative therapy, art and drama therapy, breath work, meditation and psycho-education.
I usually work with the group to develop an end result project which in some cases was a play, in others it was an art installation. It is up to the group dynamics to decide.
The next round is on September 2023. If you would like to receive a programme information sheet and application for the workshop. Please get in touch here.
