Announcing A Free and Introductory Workshop
Discover The Dandelion Principle In Our Lives
When: October 1, Saturday – 1:00 – 3:30pm
Where: 100 N. High St., The First Christian Church, main office entrance
Duration: Two and a half hours
Prior registration required, limited to 15 participants
How does a dandelion live? It is well grounded with strong roots. Machines and poison, hate and disdain cannot keep it down. It is confident of its place in the world, and returns again and again, alive and whole. It is the symbol of subsistence healing, our innate capacity for self care, providing our own sense of balance, aliveness, wholeness, our Dandelion Principle.
Using memories, various narrative methods, and techniques derived from Appreciative Inquiry discover the Dandelion Principle in your life.
Developed and led by Ishita Ghosh, historian, teacher, artisan, and long term practitioner of subsistence healing, the workshop will involve intense and creative self-exploration and group work. Become attuned to what “works” in your life, discover your generative potential, share your stories. What you learn and create about yourself may continue to impact your life beyond the workshop.
