Living small: We see it in the faces of people who move from one bad relationship to another, not questioning how or why they are in the same situation, just with different people. Or, we hear it in the voices of individuals who are frustrated because they possess the talents and credentials to be successful in their careers, yet they find themselves in positions that are extremely limiting. We can ask ourselves why any of us stay in these situations, but the reality is that we would change if we knew to do so. Unfortunately, we are living unconsciously—we are living small.
Trauma and our personal complexes keep us locked in these unconscious patterns, repeating them over and over. There is no choice to be made. These patterns leave us adrift where we respond to the world in ways that marginalize and potentially destroy our lives.
I invite you to join us for this four-hour virtual seminar. Through our lectures and discussions, we will address unconscious patterns and how they are manifested in our lives. And, most importantly, we will explore how these patterns can be made conscious, allowing us to live more richly and meaningfully.
Abraham Heschel, the leading Jewish philosopher and theologian of the 20th Century referred to living a conscious life when he stated, “Never once in my life did I ask God for success or wisdom or power or fame. I asked for wonder, and he gave it to me.” It is through this sense of wonder that we can experience those moments when the veil is lifted, and the contours of our lives are more clearly seen.
