“Let’s Act Out”

A client talked about how embarrassed he had been about his recent behaviour. A trained facilitator, he was about to embark on a great Odyssee and he feared his ego had got the better of him in the last few months.

“There I was, acting out…” he complained [about himself].

I promised him I would create a whole workshop around the theme.

The archetypes: Hamlet; Hamlet with Yorick’s skull, pondering death [and childhood attachments]; Antony fearing loss of libido and following Cleopatra’s ships turning tail against his own army, the Romans… 

I shall borrow a skull, a sail, and a manuscript, and put this workshop in motion. Who would like to join me?
