This workshop’s concept is philosophically based on the fact that Epictetus the slave, Marcus Aurelius the emperor and Seneca the power broker and playwright, are three radically different men led radically different lives. But they seemed to have one habit in common: Journaling. Writing on a regular basis focuses the mind, makes the person aware of connections that they might otherwise have forgotten. It’s not a substitute for memory, but rather a way of forcing each person to put the scattered memory fragments together. An individualized writing therapy will allow every participant to write down his thoughts about disturbing issues, beliefs, future vision, self-confidence etc. Analyzing written pieces around specific well-being topics during the workshop will allow each attendee to dive into an ocean of emotions and memories capable of allowing the attendees to discover themselves and the blockages which are the reason behind any distress or feeling of dissatisfaction. It is a fun, enlightening and evolving experience that highlights the need to keep a personal/philosophical journal and keep on writing…
