Write your autobiography

What is my story? How did I become the way I am? What were the events in my life that changed it? Who influenced my look on life?

What: Take the time to reflect on who you are; become the author of your life through writing and collaging your autobiography in a supportive group to share your story with

Why: What holds us back in our life are stories from our past. Distinguishing and sharing them helps us transform them.

How: Online group call for 1 hour every week with writing homework

When: Every Wednesday from 6:30-7:30pm UK for two months (9 sessions) 10th June – 5th August 2020

Price: £100 (£8 a session)

This was an amazing process of writing my story, reflecting on who I am and how I become that person.

How do these calls work?

During our weekly call, you will get to reflect on your own life path and share how your identity was formed and start to transform the seeds of the past. You will be heard by the others in the group who will also share what they are discovering about themselves. Outside of the call, you will be set writing each week that will become your autobiography. Take the time for yourself to look at your life to date so you are free to create the life you want.

You will be part of a WhatsApp group where you get to share weekly insights and pictures of your autobiographical work. In community is a way to help us break free from the narrative of separation into a sense of belonging. You can benefit from our practices regardless of your age from 20 to 80’s and beyond, our community welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds.

Doing this with others, the sharing was so moving and I got present to how I belong to one big family, that no matter the age or where we come from or our social background – we are all the same.

What do I get out of these calls?

These calls allow you to have a better understanding of your life path, create balance and a clearer direction to go forward in your life. To live in the present moment by using powerful creative tools such as collage, writing and group sharing. To be part of a community.

Here are some things that will get covered: 

  • [Coll]ages: We will work with collages on the narratives we created about ourselves and the world at different ages, so we may bring more awareness on the dynamics at play in our life
  • [I]dentity: we will explore how our sense of “I” was formed
  • [Auto]biography: we will bring more consciousness into our life journey rather than living from our subconscious mechanism 

The collages were powerful as a creative process to free myself from the past.

Why Art Earth Tech value the practice

Part of creating a wiser world we all want to live in, is by becoming more aware of how we form our identity and narratives, so we may master the perspective we have on the world, ourselves and others. We see that having deep understanding helps being empowered, and sharing that with others is where you can transform your story.

Hi Petra and Sylvie, I would love to do this, but the evening slot may be a bit challenging because of childcare/family commitments. Any chance you could do this in the mornings? I found Sylvie’s creative practice sessions at 7:30-8:30am to work really well – but I realise people have different schedules and needs 🙂
