Module 1-1:  Typologies – Themes and Patterns in Life

Temperament, Soul Type, Qualities, Rhythms and Cycles in Life

Two archetypes are guiding images for this workshop: The four-fold archetype of the Temperaments which are, for example related to the elements earth, water, fire and air and the seven-fold archetype of those seven planets visible to the naked eye.

Seven Qualities and Rhythms, derived from the archetypal image of the seven Planets are introduced as windows for creatively exploring events, cycles and qualities in human biography and personality. The Seven Soul Types each give a distinct soul colouring which influences us in the way we meet people and situations.  Insights into the Four Temperaments help us to understand habitual patterns.  The way our Temperament and Soul Type interrelate, affects many aspects of our lives including our inner balance.  Other typologies i.e. MBTI, DISC and Jungian typologies will be introduced and compared to complement the seven and fourfold image.

Module 1-2: Destiny – Learning from Life Challenges

Introducing a Seven Step Transformative Process

This workshop pursues questions of destiny, revealing how the Double or Shadow can be understood as a Destiny Signpost and helper. The exploration starts with individual examples of repeated unsuccessful patterns in our lives where usually we repeat what works well for us. We follow a Seven Step Transformative Process that encourages an empathetic viewing of how we meet challenging events in our own characteristic ways. Blind Spots can become more conscious and learning opportunities can be taken up where previously we may have experienced only an obstacle.

The approach presented on this workshop has been originally researched and developed by Coenraad van Houten who also introduced the term ‘Destiny Learning’. Being an adult educator he saw formal learning processes happening in schools and universities as ‘Learning for Life’ and ‘Destiny Learning’ as ‘Learning from Life’, if we are ready to take ourselves on as a ‘Life Learner’. In this context Karma or Destiny is seen as part of everyday life and a spiritual reality. The theme will be explored through workshop content, supportive small group work and by creating imaginative pictures.

Workshop fee:  $380 inc. $77 non-refundable enrolment fee inc. GST.

Module 1-3:  Encpounter – The Helping Conversation and Deep Listening

Three Levels and Seven Qualities in Encounter and Conversation

In this course we practise how to follow thoughts, sense emotional messages and grasp underlying motivations (or will directions) in conversations.  The workshops aim to help us become aware of the different approaches we can take to meet daily interactions in life more consciously, more effectively and less charged.  Communication skills are introduced through the exploration of seven approaches derived from Seven Planetary Qualities.  By emphasising the importance of authentic and compassionate interaction, we aim to widen our range of listening and responsiveness.  We also focus on how to create open spaces and open questions.  Combining Helping Conversation and Destiny Learning 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 the dynamics and escalation of conflicts and how it can be insightful to consider the conflict partner’s perspective and find ways to defuse or un-fuel conflicts or challenging situations.

Workshop fee: $380 inc. $77 non-refundable enrolment fee inc. GST.
