This month: Getting Through These Strange Times
Thursday 28th January 7.30 – 9pm
This session is free.
This month we’ll explore how noticing that we live through the stories we bring to each moment can help us practically to navigate through these strange times without getting lost.
Victor Frankl, neurologist, psychiatrist and holocaust surviver is famously quoted as saying:
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.“
What if we didn’t need to wait until everything was taken away first to really see the truth of this? What if this is our first freedom? If we look more closely at ourselves, we begin to see that our attitude in any moment is linked to the story we’re telling at that moment. We think that this story is ‘true’. But what do we really mean by this? Spend a few minutes checking over your past, even the past few days. Don’t some of our attitudes change all the time, depending on our mood? Our thinking? A new piece of information? So what does all this have to do with navigating these times?! Come along and we’ll explore this together.

Looking forward to seeing you.
Through folktale and myth these sessions look at how the way we experience life comes from the stories we’re telling ourselves, moment to moment, and how beneath these stories is a knowing that we are life itself.
