More About The Class

The importance of culture is often misunderstood and overlooked Music, film, literature and the visual arts, aren’t simply entertaining; they help us develop a sense of meaning in life. Our identity lies in the hands of culture, influencing our values, views, loyalties and fears. What is culture really for? What importance does it play in our lives? How best can we draw value from it in order to lead more emotionally fulfilling lives?


How Culture Can Change Your Life teaches:

 

  • That the power of culture emerges best when we rely on it as a therapeutic tool
  • Culture aids us in our quest to develop self-knowledge, empathy and communion
  • Culture provides a sense of consolation
  • This workshop connects a range of cultural masterpieces with our own dilemmas and pains around love, work and society, and invites us to see culture as a resource with which to address the complex agonies of being human

The format of this workshop is highly interactive and involves a combination of teaching, group discussion and individual reflection. The facilitators of the workshop aim to create a confidential space where all participants are welcome to contribute freely and comfortably. If you have any questions about the format of the workshop please get in touch at [email protected]
