Testimonials for Callan

“Just a quick note to let you know that your workshop last week was one of the best I have been to in a very long time (maybe ever…). You made a real impact on me and I believe everyone else in our team, but it was such a great reminder and I have really found myself stopping and thinking before I speak, judge and act.”

Team Leader, Corporate Client

“I’ve just read the letter you prepared (from our session) and I’m blown away by how accurately you’ve captured every detail. In all my years seeing physiologists, I have never felt so ‘heard’.”

JS, therapeutic practice client

During this interactive workshop you will:

see how the heroic journey metaphor plays out continuously in our life stories.

identify some of the defining moments of your life.

learn how to map your life experiences to the heroic journey.

When you leave, you’ll:

appreciate that everyone is on their own hero’s journey.

have a greater awareness of life’s less useful scripts that can entrap you.

recognise patterns within your own life and that of others.

understand the enrichment that transformation brings to our lives.

Concerns stopping you from taking action:

My personal stories are uninteresting; they feel boring.

The stories from our past need not define our future. We all tend to be critical of our own stories and repeat a few in our heads. In this workshop you will learn to embrace a multi-storied life and how to restitch your narrative or story in a new way that will feel far from boring.

I’m shy about sharing my story in front of strangers.

You can share as much or as little as you like in this workshop. Breakout groups can be a really useful way to gain insights into your own situation and uncover new ways to excavate your story. But there is no pressure to share more than you are comfortable with.

Certain things just happen in life from which we can derive no meaning

The trap of replaying negative stories about ourselves is an easy one to fall in to. In this workshop you will learn how to positively reframe life experiences and overlay them with meaning.

So, what have you got to lose?

If you are curious about how to move beyond self-limiting stories that are holding you back, then you should consider attending this interactive workshop. We are inviting you to lean in, to step up and take action. Don’t put this off a second longer…
