‘Unmasked’ – Psychodrama Workshop on 16th & 17th June 2018 at Delhi

We all wear a MASK outside, be it a workplace, in family, relationships, in general to the outside world. The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first. Your Joy is Your sorrow UNMASKED. It helps one to get in contact with your inner self and this knowing is helpful so that you can live with more purpose and joy. Psychodrama is essentially a group action method that helps a person to embrace one’s own capabilities. This could be used in clinical setting (hospitals, therapy centers), non-clinical setting like a business establishment in team building, conflict management, stress management, identifying and working with stress, improving communication, building trust, identifying issues etc. This is a spontaneous and creative method which is used by certified psychodramatists who is otherwise called the Psychodrama director.

Families and how to survive them

A Psychodrama workshop with Marcia Karp

 

How and why we fall in love? How we develop from babies to adolescents to adults, and how during this development we so often become “stuck” in childlike behaviour, and how all these things are influenced by previous generations in our families.This knowing of  how families behave and function, what makes some work and others fail, and how families can move up the scale towards greater health and happiness is helpful  towards making life more understandable, meaningful, and enjoyable.Psychodrama is essentially a group action method. This could be used in any business establishment in team building, conflict management, stress management, identifying and working with stress, improving communication, building trust, identifying issues etc. This method is a spontaneous and creative method which is used by well trained and certified psychodramtists who are usually called the Psychodrama director.

Finding your own creative genius

Personal therapy session with Marcia Karp

Therapy is a way to share your problems, and by so doing begin to find creative solutions, by talking it through, by action, by identifying with others, or by  just stating the issues. For some people, the latter begins a whole new process of hope that something new may shift in their life. The  physical and psychological inertia ceases and the work begins. For others, a commitment to try something new in action, a new way of relating to an old situation, or an adequate way of relating to a new situation, may help the individual spontaneously create their own answers. Finding the autonomous healing place of each person seeking help is an important focus of the work. The therapist is a mid-wife to that process.  

Date: 26th & 27th February 2018

Fee: 3000/ hour

“Your Miracles are an inside job. Go there to create the magic that you seek in your life”

– Wayne Dyer

 

Do you have a dream or lifestyle in mind you want to make come true because you know it will be liberating (starting a new creative business, buying a house, driving a car, writing a book, making a big move etc.) but are paralyzing yourself with doubts, fears and negativity? To help you make noticeable shifts in your understanding of what has been holding you back experience the ‘Create the Magic’ Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy Workshop.

 

According to Dr. J.L. Moreno, in psychodrama “a man can play the part of a woman and a woman can play the part of a man; an old person can take the part of a child and a child the part of an old person; a man can be an animal; an object can be a man.”

Psychodrama is an active and creative method that enables participants to use guided drama and role-playing to work through issues. The basic concepts of psychodrama are:

 

  1. The warm-up, preparing for an act
  2. Spontaneity and creativity
  3. The encounter
  4. Simulation
  5. Concretization and acting out
  6. The mirror
  7. The double
  8. Sensitivity training
  9. Role playing and role reversal
  10. Surplus reality

 

By means of these methods a healthy person may live more effectively, a sick person may learn to bear his misery, and the dead may continue to play a part in our lives. Fear is dispelled, human limitations are stretched and creating magic becomes a part of our life.
