1:00 pm CST - 5:00 pm CST
Instructor: Charlotta Koppanyi
In this hands-on art workshop, the focus will be on the “What Now?” situations and how we handle them. We will explore this by thinking about our past, what we relished doing, finding the joy, and bringing it back to the Now as we move on to the next phase in our life.
The question, “What Now?” tends to be expressed when we are in situations of needing or wanting a change, i.e. when a modification of circumstances is forcing us or providing us with the opportunity to make a change. Regardless of how or why the “What Now?” arises, we have the choice of how to move forward with it. Jung talked about the need to listen to our psyche and adjust accordingly because ignoring it could lead to consequences forcing a change rather than allowing us to choose how to change.
By working with images of the “What Now?” situations and images of what we enjoy in life, we have a road map to move forward. The approach used in this workshop is positive and constructive, identifying what gives us joy, satisfaction, curiosity and action.
