Biography work helps to map these personal experiences against the backdrop of archetypal development – this can help us feel that we are part of a larger plan and intention, supporting us in moving from feeling like ‘life is just happening to me’ – to feeling that we can engage creatively with our lives and feel empowered and on the right track. The approach includes using varied creative exercises to access thoughts and feelings as methods that support the process.
Biography work can help with issues such as:
- A crisis in mid-career
- Evaluation and reflection on next steps
- Identifying values, beliefs and core life themes
- Finding meaning for life events
Workshops are available in Biography Work and can be used for personal and professional development for individuals wishing to explore their life themes in a creative way. This approach is also useful for relationship building when brought to groups and professional teams.
