Fire and Water---Mining Powerful Personal Stories

Entertainment and inspirational narratives in our culture are dominated by stories of heroic achievement and of triumph: of victims saved, goals reached, and passions fulfilled.

However, from youth to old age, life experience reminds us that not all passionate action, however well intended,  leads to fulfillment and that not everyone and everything can be saved. Likewise, world mythology and spiritual parables from all faiths advise us that we must recognize and face the demons, failures, and discouragements if our life paths are to lead to eventual peace, integration, and serenity; that, in fact, there are riches to mine from difficult times.

This workshop will explore lifes crooked and undulating path upon which most of us tread --- the path that does not always rise with the heat and spirit of passion and inspiration but meanders like water, uncertain of its eventual goal, and yet often leads to the unexplored, underground caverns where our gold awaits, shimmering in the darkness.

Participants will be invited to explore the territory of our conflicts, rake the coals of our most paradoxical relationships, and life stations, to find the buried, glowing coals of insight from which can be shaped meaningful stories.
