EVENT: Letting Go of the Past – Saturday, 8 June 2013

On the 8th June we are running a workshop in collaboration with St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, using narrative-based techniques to explore self-forgiveness and to transform personal stories of mistakes and failure.

Many of us carry stories within us that we hesitate to share with others.  Stories of mistakes or failure – times when we let ourselves or others down, or made choices which had consequences that were hard to live with.  None of us are perfect – our lives are subject to human error.

Learning to forgive ourselves is not always easy, and can impact on our ability to forgive others or to build peace.  But our mistakes also carry transformative potential.  We can sometimes learn more through our mistakes than from our successes, and they can be equally rich in meaning.

In this workshop, we will find simple non-threatening ways to explore some of the difficult stories we carry (sharing as much or as little as we feel comfortable with), in the process making space for new possibilities and potential.

Using story-telling and narrative techniques, reflection, dialogue and sharing.

From 10am – 5pm at St Ethelburga’s in London

Cost: £35
