Have you ever answered a question like “What are you working on?” or “Who do you work with?” or even “Who are you?” with “Well, uhm, it’s complicated”?
Then, this workshop is for you.
Are you profoundly empathetic, an amazing out-of-the-box thinker or a deep analytical thinker? Do you love exploring and helping others?
Then, this workshop needs you.
A. What's going to happen?
@Thomas Goorden will be leading an experiential, experimental and intensive workshop loosely based on Joe Edelman’s “Hyperactive Listening” format, sprinkled with a dash of “Enlightenment Intensive” (the ultra-light version) and punctuated with an intentional walk.
You can participate as either “Story” or as “Co-counsellor”:
Your “story” (a project, idea or problem) will become the center of an investigative group exercise. The messier your “story”, the better the workshop will be. Perhaps you are working on a project, but aren’t really sure what it is or have difficulty explaining it to people? Perhaps you are stuck in some kind of dilemma or conflict that you find difficult to get past?
Perfect. We will take a significant amount of time to figure out what is going on and help you get on your way (again).
The outcome of the workshop (for you) could be text, diagrams, video and pictures that you can use to explain your story when those questions come up once more. But most importantly, some fundamental insight into your own story.
A good co-counsellor is in the first place someone who can listen to someone’s story (even if it is your own). You’ll then get to ask questions, investigate, analyse, try to distil the essence of a story, receive feedback and start from the beginning again. Until we get it “right”.
You’ll learn and practice all sorts of skills valuable for telling your own stories when they need it. And of course you will discover all sorts of projects other people are working on. But mostly, you will have the deep satisfaction of having been able to help someone.
Please note that part of the format will relate directly to discovering who you are, so you may expect some personal insights as co-counsellor as well.
The workshop can normally only accommodate a maximum of 8 people, of which 3 people can bring a story. Should there be a lot more interest, we’ll try to figure out how to handle it. Please indicate in the comments if you would like to bring a “story”.
