Module F: Taking Charge of my Life
First Steps in Biography Work
This workshop is a learning opportunity for everybody intending to ‘take charge’ of their own life’s journey. It offers a deeper understanding of the physical, social and mental developmental stages in one’s life.
The workshop is based on Life Story- or Biography Work ‘a guided tour’ for self-reflection on our biographies. We take stock by looking at our gifts, challenges and patterns from the past and how they appear in the present. Strengthening and deepening self-knowledge, this offers keys for future change and growth. By exploring how we learn from life we become more effective for life and the challenges we meet.
Participants take this and other Living-way workshops for personal and professional development and it has proved to be especially beneficial for individuals in social, therapeutic, educational, organisation development, personal development and training professions.
Secondly the workshop serves as the Foundation Seminar for any other Living-way course and a Life Story Work training. This training provides skills and theory for offering Biographical Consultations or blend Life Story Work with other social, educational, therapeutic or consultancy professions.
Thirdly the workshop is a practical and life-related Introduction into Anthroposophy.
Taking the personal aspects explored in the Foundation Module further into professional development, many therapists, teachers, facilitators and consultants find that seeing everyday experiences as part of a whole life-picture has resulted in a deeper understanding of layers and phases in life, and opened new perspectives and approaches in their work.
Life Story Work contributes to resilience and health by strengthening the individuals Sense of Coherence (Antonowsky, 1970), resulting from the ability to make sense of life, to interact with and be part of life events and to contribute meaningfully to life situations. Some just call it “to be in tune”. From that perspective Life Story work helps to tune-in; to resonate with what is meant to be or to happen.
“Life is not a problem to be solved
but a mystery to be lived.”
