As healing professionals, we face ethical dilemmas from time to time. Some of them are big and scary. Those are the ones we get help with – either from peers, friends or even our old ethics texts. Then there are little, everyday issues to which we pay less attention. We can develop a sort of “autopilot” or habitual pattern of not seeing which allows us to drift out of our sense of authentic self. Before long, we can find ourselves wondering if we are living the life we intended.
In this workshop, we will seek to identify our core values as healers. Then we will practice identifying the daily choices we make that either encourage or discourage living into those values. We will learn to avoid the pitfalls where we lose our sense of balance.
Using lecture, experiential exercises, group discussions, movement and touch the class will explore how to intentionally create relationships that are healing for all involved. Students will leave with a greater sense of themselves and how they want to relate to the world around them.
