In this workshop, learners will explore some of the stories and world views held by their ancestors that they have consciously and unconsciously woven into the fabric of their life.



Some of these stories are healthy and others, when lived into, are out of alignment with the authentic self. In this safe space, learners will come to discover an Ally or guide; they may be human or animal.

The ally will be a source of support as they unpack these stories and learn tools to let go of those that are no longer serving them.

Learners Will:

  • Find their ally – create a visual expression of this inner source of support.
  • Discover the stories they carry from those who have come before
    • Explore themes that emerge
    • Unpack how the different sides of one’s family lives into the same themes
    • Unpack how the different sides of one’s family lives into different themes
    • Explore how these myths show up in their life
    • Which myths are supportive
      • Are these a part of the learner’s worldview? Why or why not?
    • Which are maladaptive?
      • Have they taken these on? If so, how might they change the narrative?

Art Materials to have on hand for the workshop:

  • materials to make a collage- whatever you would like;
  • a journal or something to take notes in.
