Sensei Mui and Charlotta Koppanyi
*Limited to 12 participants.
C.G. Jung was among the first psychiatrists who worked with art as a gateway to reach, communicate and understand his patients’, and his own, psyche. Jung concluded that spontaneous and intuitively expressed art carried symbols and archetypes and therefore connected us to a deeper level of our psyche, both the individual and the collective unconscious.
In Buddhism, there are three foundational hindrances which create obstacles to spiritual well-being. This workshop will explore how these hindrances relate to leadership in our personal and professional life. Focus will be on the three hindrances illustrated in the hub of the Wheel of Life (Samsara), which is portrayed as the rooster (greed), the snake (ill will) and the pig (ignorance). Utilizing art, we will give form to our personal hindrances and discuss how they impact us in our daily life.
