DIGNITY in Dream Identities Workshop-Style Virtual Event
January 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Many of us look at the New Year as a time to start again – to reconnect with ourselves, our aspirations, and our dreams. This year, perhaps, more so than ever. With so much having changed, and a seemingly never-ending sense of uncertainty, we find ourselves yearning for the stability and strength of self – for self-assurance, groundedness, and authenticity.
In this workshop-style virtual event, Dr. Beth-Sarah Wright will draw from the insights in her latest book, DIGNITY: Seven Strategies for Creating Authentic Community, to help us explore our own barriers to authenticity, how to excavate our own truths, and create lasting and sustainable change. This is an invitation to embark on the difficult yet hopeful work of authentic living.
The term dream-identity is what Dr. Wright refers to as the identity that drives the purpose of our work towards authenticity. It is our aspiration, what we strive towards and what we hope to become our lived identity.
Bring your notebook or journal and a pen, your openness, and bravery, prepared to dig a little deeper this year, as we work together to manifest our most authentic selves as we strive to achieve our aspirational and dream identities.
