Biography Workshops & Training – Berlin Part 2

Module 2-1: Socialisation – Life Encounters and Relationships

Dependency, Independency, Interdependency – Anima and Animus

How are relationships formed and sustained, changed and dissolved? We consider the meaning of family experience, childhood and adolescent relationships, partnerships, friendships and collegial contacts. In reviewing developmental themes and social attitudes we aim to deepen our understanding of difficulties and possibilities that can arise. We will explore evolutionary-biological, socio-cultural, psychological-soul and spiritual perspectives to look at femininity and masculinity as qualities and polarities, and how they influence human relationships. The family is seen as the primal experience and mould for the life-theme “relationships”, which will be looked at through the window of “Dependency – Independency – Interdependency”. Further themes will be love, partnership, marriage and their development and meaning. We will also introduce ideas on developmental phases of relationships.

Module 2-2: Conflict – Polarity and Diversity as a Developmental Challenge

Ways to Recognising and Working with Conflict Patterns

In this workshop we will explore the potential for self-development in the challenging encounters with other people.
Typical incidents out of personal experience will be explored to find individual patterns and personal styles of action and reaction in conflict situations. We will also look at constructive and destructive forces influencing conflict situations, the dynamics and escalation of conflicts, and how it can be insightful to consider the conflict partner’s perspective. The seminar encompasses experiential work and group dynamics as a learning element.

The ‘Seven Step Learning and Transformation Process’ – introduced in the ‘Destiny Learning’ module – will be reintroduced, deepened and applied. The starting points being individual conflict situations. Participants are asked to bring notes about small conflicts that have happened to them and which could be used as learning material during the course.

Fundamental ideas for this workshop have been derived from Friedrich Glasl’s book ‘Confronting Conflict’, Rudolf Steiner’s indications regarding Spiritual and Subterranean Hierarchies and Carl Gustav Jung’s work on the Shadow.

Module 2-3: Crisis – Experiencing Trials and Thresholds

Reflecting on Peak-, Abyss- and Transition Experiences

Mozart’s opera ‘The Magic Flute’ depicts trials as incidents within a formal initiation process. Modern life and consciousness has stepped beyond formal settings, but trial-like incidents appear as part of daily life. In difficult life circumstances we may feel as if we are losing the ground from under our feet, being swept away by a wave, or feeling consumed by a fiery experience. We aim to distinguish the distinctive nature of contemporary “trials” that confront us as individuals especially within social life and compare these with the old pictures of “fire, water or air trials.” We also explore what the expression “humanity is crossing the threshold” actually means in this context. Phenomenology related to the elements fire, water and air will give points of reference to explore the theme on lofty spiritual levels and down to the unvarnished reality of daily life.
