 Return to Workshop Calender

Feb 28 2020

Newport Beach
5 Gates of Grief
 Personal Growth Workshop

Regardless of the cause of it, loss can be painful and overwhelming because it requires us to let go of something cherished, accept unwanted changes, and find a new way of existing in the world. We are offered no roadmap for this daunting path and often travel it alone. Many of us cope with loss by shutting down of our hearts, but that serves to isolate us even more. In the midst of such despair, it’s hard to imagine that we’ll ever be happy again.

Please join us in this one of a kind, small group retreat, where we will explore our unique experiences – through the 5 Gates of Grief model – deepen our understanding of loss and mourning, build connection and community, and develop personal rituals of healing. Loss is permanent but through resilience, we can each find a new sense of being and create a vision for the future.


February 28 – March 1, 2020

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
