CCA July Lunch & Learn | The Gifts of a Life Review: Exploring Our Lived and Unlived Life (Online)

About the Event
The traditional life review is the ego's life review – the story that we consciously lived. But we know that the personal unconscious, or Shadow, carries its own stories. Join Connie Zweig and discover how to add the dimension of the Shadow to a life review, and to bring a deeper perspective to this practice. We will explore the many ways of connecting what we've expressed in our individual life with what was repressed and unlived. In this way, we can give a voice to our unlived life, and help it to move into conscious awareness. Through presentation and self-reflection, learn how a life review can help you discover, and maybe even reclaim, some of what was sacrificed in our pursuit of greater consciousness – lost dreams, talents, and opportunities for reconciliation and healing.
