Purpose, Politics and Influence - Richard Olivier and Ana Rhodes Mon 15 Oct - Thu 18 Oct

  • Sustainability

The art of making a difference

We are entering an age of ‘re-politicisation’ – but how can we engage without sacrificing integrity? This experiential Mythodrama workshop uses Archetypal psychology and Deep Democracy  methodology to unlock the wisdom coded into Shakespeare’s political masterpiece, ‘Julius Caesar’. Politics without Passion can be egotistical but Passion without Politics is often all too ineffective. This story draws particularly on the Archetypes of the Strategist, the Sovereign, the Dreamer and the Renegade as key ingredients to develop emotional and political intelligence in life passions and working purpose. We invite participants to bring a live issue or big question connected to where they want to make a difference in the world. We will also use live world political issues as group process forums to practice debate, dialogue and effective influence.
