Acceptance and Letting Go
November 8 – November 10, 2019
Incomplete closures lead to failed new beginnings. In this weekend, you will explore that which is unfinished. Participants will address the natural but often difficult process of accepting that which is real and no longer. As a group member, you will have the opportunity to explore your challenges with acceptance, say goodbye and face your grief by harnessing strengths in a gentle, supportive environment.
Participants will utilize action methods to face obstacles and release that which has ended or needs to end. Some examples of impending or past losses participants often investigate may relate to a person, a group, a life stage, a dream, a role, an expectation, an identity, a country, culture or place, a habit, a substance, a lifestyle, or a physical or a psychological part of the self, among others. By moving into the place of grief and acceptance, you can begin to forgive, make amends if needed, experience closure and dream again.
This workshop will be highly experiential and may utilize many of the techniques of psychodrama: Role reversal, empty chair, doubling, role play, letter writing, journaling, mirroring and sharing. No prior experience with psychodrama is necessary.
