Contrary to popular belief, a myth is not a fallacy but a symbolic story imbued with universal and collective truths. They are the tales woven through time, tethering us to our ancestors, society, and culture. Unpacking these myths illuminates the origins of your actions, attitudes, and behaviors.

In this workshop, you will discover an ally, a guide, who you can look to for support whenever doing experiential self-work. Together, we will unpack myths that support and impede living authentically. When you identify these narratives, you’ll discover that attempting to live another person’s story will always feel ill-fitting. And more importantly, your true, ever-evolving self has a beautiful myth to tell.
