In this relaxed retreat style, we explore our life story through biography work and the law of causality or karma. In biography, we look at the human being and discuss its nature. Karma or the law of cause and effect is behind biography work. We make ourselves our study. When we learn to read the script we begin to lift the veil to rediscover our true nature. We use human biography to understand karma and through that we begin to wake up.
The task of doing biography work is to awaken a living imagination of what it means to be human, and an awareness of the laws and rhythms of biographical development and the nature of the human encounter as a foundation for the helping relationship. Biography can contribute to the awakening of a new consciousness and the questions and trails in individual lives today. Biography encourages participants to get in touch with their own existential questions and creativity. It aims to deepen self-knowledge and open a path of inner development that can heighten sensitivity and ethical awareness.
It is important to not only work with our own biography but to also listen to others' biographies. Meeting and listening to each other with reverence and interest so that we can get in touch with our real questions and potential.
