Uncovering Blind Spots: Shed some light on the cataracts suffocating your imagination * One Day Workshop
“Until you make the Unconscious Conscious, it will Direct your Life and you will call it Fate." - Carl Jung
Blind spots are areas where we lack self-awareness. They are personal habits that we don’t see but which are often painfully obvious to others. Some of them simply hamper our development, while others can ruin our lives.
Despite the rise of positive psychology, very few people are actually flourishing. While accentuating the positive is indeed valuable, it is only half the story. Blind spots are areas where we lack self-awareness. They are personal habits that we don’t see but which are often painfully obvious to others.
There are countless examples of historical figures who achieved great things, yet remained terribly flawed as human beings. The legacies of Walt Disney and Steve Jobs have brought joy to millions of people, but those who worked alongside them spoke of their tyrannical, power-mad tendencies. While we all have our character flaws, blind spots can not only hamper the development of our potential, they can ruin our lives.
In the first of our ongoing series of personal development workshops, we will be looking at identifying our blindspots, finding the gift in them and remedying their destructive elements. To do so, we will draw on the insights of philosophy, psychology, biography and poetry.
Find Your Tribe
Paul Hawken rightly claims that “Humanity is coalescing. It is reconstituting the world, and the action is taking place in schoolrooms, farms, jungles, villages, campuses, companies, refuge camps, deserts, fisheries, and slums.” In order to create something better, we’re going to need all the pioneers, change agents, different drummers and other outliers to come together.
Come and meet other progressive thinkers and learn about how personal blind spots keep us small, but only if we stay oblivious to them. This workshop has a strong practical focus, for ideas alone remain impotent.
