Self-discovery is a lifelong process of acquiring insight into oneself, consciously developing self-awareness and personal capabilities that allow us to live at deeper, richer levels of our being. It involves looking closely at our capacities, constraints, and potential in contrast to our (and others’) assumptions and expectations of ourselves, and it is often initiated by life changes that impact our sense of identity, such as the loss of a relationship or job.
Archetypal energies beckon us to live a larger life. We are all healers, warriors, visionaries and teachers - but often these potentials remain in latent form. Through song, dance, storytelling and meditation we can activate these archetypes.
