Module 3-1: Mission and Meaning
Life as a spiritual journey
Supporting the Self in search for meaning
Spirituality is part of the ‘here and now’, not otherworldly, pre-birth or after life. Images taken from world myths and fairy tales – including contemporary movies – suggest that the development of our ‘silent self’ is nourished by a ‘water of life’ which can be found as a hidden fountain within the ‘ordinary world’. Exploring your biographies, we trace life-giving, life-supporting and life-changing influences, and learn how to call on them more consciously.
We also reflect and share about meaningful texts and practices from the variety of backgrounds represented between us. This includes poetry, verses, meditations, prayers and guidelines for inner work or dynamic meditations.
We share a rich variety from many different backgrounds and indications for very different purposes – from Anthroposophy to Dervish Dances to Zen Meditation and so on. After this workshop we may return home with heads, hearts and hands full of ‘philosophical or spiritual gems’ collected and shared between us. This provides a rich context for reflecting on your own biography or that of another.
