Dream a New Dream: Live a New Story, Part 1
October 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDTFree
We live in our stories. Our stories give us meaning and help shape how we see our world. They are our personal mythology. But there are times when the story we live in is shaken up and no longer supports our personal and collective sense of wellbeing. It is as if the past has pushed us out and we are left anchorless and somewhat lost. We are living in such a time today, a time of turbulent unraveling in our world, as we birth a new story. In this course, you will be skillfully guided into 3 pillars of inquiry: Who are you today? Who are you seeking to become? How will you get there? Students will be introduced to dynamic new teachings on the transformational power of the new story in our world. They will discover the 3 foundational principles that are vital to the new story. They will learn about the illuminating power of the Seven Lanterns and its ability to offer a powerful roadmap into their future. They will connect with their dreams and visions through a guided Future Self Dialogue process where their future, rather than the limitations of a weary past, will show them the way. They will leave with a Map of Possibility, one that will offer practical and inspired action steps in five areas of their lives. This visionary journey promises to be both sacred and strategic, contemplative and action-oriented. It offers a unique perspective on living our lives from a place of courage, commitment, and profound care for ourselves and our world. Each session will be a weaving of inspirational teachings, reflective journaling, and student dialogue.
