Event description

Description

Envy is the ulcer of the soul
-Socrates

Ironically, the magic in storytelling, the feelings of awe, wonder and connection with its characters, most often comes from what’s left out. The magic arises not from what’s told, but from the uncertainty and tension created within the story’s gaps and ambiguities. Western literature tends to fill in these gaps, leaving little to the imagination, yet the trade-off is stories that are far less compelling than those told in the ancient works of literature.


Using the underlying framework of psychodrama, participants will learn a new way of storytelling and interpretation applicable to their stories and the stories of others. In this workshop, we will explore the most famous murder of all time - Cain’s murder of his brother Abel! Full of archetype and the universal feelings and experiences of envy, shame and sibling rivalry, this workshop works as both a stand-alone as well as a continuation of the Hero’s Journey workshop. Useful for anyone who wants to explore the universal shadow sides that plague all of humanity, as well as learning the technique of Bibliodrama and psychodrama for self-exploration or as a vehicle to improve storytelling.


These ongoing sessions present sociometry, psychodrama, spontaneity-creativity theory and role theory. Participants will learn and practice techniques for use in their field of interest. Attendees have the opportunity to experience and learn about the roles of group member, auxiliary ego, protagonist and director. Sessions will offer unique instruction in the application of experiential methods to a variety of life circumstances and themes. In addition, by being involved in all the roles of psychodrama, participants will benefit from deep personal growth work. Psychodramatic methodologies of role reversal, doubling, mirroring and future projection will be demonstrated and experienced. Lunch not provided.



7 training hours can be credited toward certification by the American Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy.
