SHAME | a 3-week Intensive LECTURE ONLY
Alchemizing Shame for Powerful Storytelling
- 153 US dollars$153
In this intensive we will examine Shame and the many ways it shows up and contorts our lives and world views. Through a combo of lecture, group discussion, and journal prompts we will shed light and dismantle the Shame in our lives. Once we have examined our personal relationships with shame, we will consider how to use that wisdom to create dynamic characters and compelling stories. In this course you and your heroes will journey from shame toward authenticity! WORKSHOP AGENDA: We will be meeting every other week due to the weight of the topic and depth of the work. WEEK 1 | Big Shame We will come together as a group to discuss Shame on a macro level. All the programming that teaches us to internalize shame from media, society, unspoken rules & mores, intergenerational trauma, and more. We will use a combo of journal prompts, group discussion, and _____. Each Group Container call will end with a 15min group reiki session to relax and decompress. OFF WEEK | Integration Take a break this week to relax, notice, and integrate the work from the week. We will send out some journal prompts, writing exercises, and resources if you'd like to take the practice deeper. Otherwise - RELAX! WEEK 2 | Personal Shame This week we'll come together as a group to discuss Shame on a Personal Level--the ways it shows up in our bodies and lives. We will consider when we feel the ping of shame and how it affects our decisions. We will continue with journal prompts, group discussion, and a writing exercise to go deeper into the topic of Shame. PLEASE NOTE: You will lead how much or little you participate in the group shares. You may keep personal details to yourself! I am much more concerned with revelations or philosophical discussions out of respect of personal privacy. OFF WEEK | Integration WEEK 3 | Alchemizing Shame On our final group call we will take all that we learned and apply that to our storytelling. We will consider how to embed shame, and--more importantly--overcoming shame to arrive at authenticity, in our Hero's Journey. This week we'll focus on Story Structure, Character Development, and Catharsis through Lecture, Group discussion, and a writing exercise.
