At the next Spirit in the City entitled ‘The Adventure of Self Discovery” we will be delving deep into the different tools we have to explore the depths of who we are. The evening will be hosted by Martin Duffy and as always will begin with a drumming journey.
About the Talk
The inner journey is the most important trip that we will ever take from birth to death. Many wise ones have said that "to know thyself" is the ultimate goal of our lives. Jung called this process individuation and he stated that the goal of life was to bring our shadow into light, to make the unknown known.
At this meetup we will explore different methods of self-exploration and maps of consciousness.
Some of the topics we will discuss at this meetup are, Holotropic Breathwork, Jungian and Transpersonal Psychology, Shamanism, Grofs maps of Consciousness, How our Birth influences our personalities, Non Ordinary States of Consciousness, Dreamwork, Projection Mindfulness and how we Create our Own Reality, "what we hold within ourselves, we meet in life as fate" C.G. Jung.
