Experience guided reflection with symbols, imagination, and dreams as a path to exploring: Who am I? How can I clear away the layers that have been imposed on me? How do I live authentically in a world that isn’t always supportive of my true self? Explore:

  • Your true self emerging through guided visualization and creative expression
  • Mindfulness and self-care practices to be present to who you are
  • Deepen your trust and compassion towards self and others
  • Discover more of who you are through using dreamwork and symbols

A chance to share ideas for authentic living with others who are asking similar questions. The course includes weekly 50 minute workshops with interactive group exercises, guided creative expression activities, self-compassion and mindfulness practices to try at home, and a meeting with a staff coach or a group coaching session. You will submit a short weekly reflection about your experiences of these exercises.
