Ancestors and Family – Writing Family Stories
One day we too will be ancestors. Our stories will be gifts for those we leave behind. We write those stories and place them next to those of our family, immediate, extended and chosen. The idea of family includes not only blood but our spiritual tradition, culture and the line of those who have influenced us. The workshop also touches on healing the family tree. It raises questions such as
• Can we influence ancestors?
• Do children and parents choose each other?
• How do we create new patterns?
Bring writing materials, any family memorabilia e.g. photos and old magazines, scissors I’ll provide tea, coffee, cookies. Bring a light lunch.
Dorian Haarhoff is a published writer, story-teller and former Professor of English. Passionate about developing innate creativity and imagination, he believes in the power of stories to create new realities. His workshops are based on his text The Writer’s Voice.
He draws his inspiration from mythology, whole-brain theory, narrative therapy, creation spirituality, the new physics and eco and Jungian psychology.
"There is such a strong spiritual presence in your workshops and in your work. I am astounded by how you are always absolutely present, how you always allow yourself to be touched by other people’s stories." (Mari Pete, published poet)
