How to rewrite your own life script
Have you ever been startled by a behavior that seemed to pop out of nowhere or bewildered by unexpected overreaction? Perhaps you've been fascinated by whispers of family secrets during childhood or puzzled by the contribution of past events to present choices. According to Shakespeare, we're all players on the stage of life. Few get serious about defining the roles they play or evaluating the script they were handed a birth—or before. And most scripts need some rewriting! Family-of-origin strategies can assist you in identifying hidden triggers and managing your present behaviors.
Have you ever been startled by a specific behavior that seemed to pop out of nowhere? Or bewildered by a reaction out of proportion to the situation at hand? Perhaps you've been fascinated by whispers of family secrets during childhood or puzzled by the contribution of past events to present choices? Maybe you've even dreamed of writing a story about a unique relative! Whatever the trigger, family-of-origin work, may be just the ticket. It's the process of getting to know who we are against the backdrop of nature and nurture and all of us can benefit from the exploration in one way or another.
Not only are we players on the stage of life, your brain has a stage with actors, dressing rooms, and wings. You can identify the roles that were handed to you and that you have developed, the script you have been following, rewrites that need to be done so the script better matches who you are innately, and so on. This seminar is designed to highlight key benefits of family-of-origin work along with strategies that can assist you in the process.
