While the modern world is rapidly making us into “global citizens,” we experience increasing isolation as individuals in our own society. There is a pressing need for us to develop new forms of relationship with family and society. Through working consciously on our own life-story, we can build bridges to other people and develop a new understanding for the lives of others.
The ideas and methods presented here are the result of the author’s many years of therapeutic work with groups and individuals, dealing with personal and professional crises. The life stories described are the authentic stories of participants in the courses and workshops. The first part of the book outlines the principles of development underlying a person’s life. The second part discusses the methodology of the author’s programs and presents a number of ways in which individuals can work on their own life-stories.
