October 2015 Personal Development and Communication Part II.
December 2015 Introduction to Reinventing myself
January 2016 Reinventing myself
I design workshops that will allow you to find ways of learning new tools in order to apply to your own personal development. You will be sharing time and learning experiences with people from contrasting backgrounds and different ways of being. This will serve as a space of very deep learning where thoughts and discoveries will be interchanged through experience-based exercises.
In the life of an expat we often wonder what to do with all the skills we have developed throughout our education and our professional lives. Children grow and become less dependent on us.. We wonder what we did with those skills, knowledges and abilities that are sometimes stored inside our warehouse, waiting to be used more wisely. We are uncomfortable when people ask us, "what do you do as a living?". When we return to our native countries and get together with those loved ones, we often feel unable to give a clear and conventional repsonse to that question.
Perhaps the answer we need to search is in a deeper dimension; an existential dimension. We have to ask ourselves honestly and openheartedly: What is our true desire? What do we really want?
Maybe Switzerland is a great opportunity to reinvent ourselves.
If you're ready to begin your process of reinvention, I invite you to this workshop, where we will explore the following topics.
• Who am I? What kind of observer am I? Addressing the observer and his world from the conception of Onthology of Language of Rafael Echeverria and Humberto Maturana among others.
• The wheel of my life. What I have and what I'm missing. Evaluation of my life balance.
• Recognize my values. How to fully live with my values.
• Who do I want to be? My life purpose and visualization of my future self to bring out the best in my present.
And especially the art reinvent yourself with other people in a shared learning process.
Methodology: experiential exercises, guided discussions and group and personal reflections. These issues will be addressed as well as others that will emerge sporadically as we go on. These have the aim of looking deeper and try to incorporate distinctions to help us with our growth and fullfillment.
• Four meetings of four hours each (Friday from 9-13 hours)
• Coffee break
