Biography Work

"Biography is: a system in which the contradictions of a human life are unified."


- Jose Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955) Spanish Essayist and Philosopher.

"Narratives are the primary way in which we make sense of our lives, as opposed to, for example schema, cognition, beliefs, constructs. Definitions of narrative include the important element of giving meaning to events and experiences over time by connecting them as a developing, continuing story"


- Bruner

I can offer a structured six session form of Biography Work with people who bring a specific life question. It is a brief yet profound way of working. Sessions are fortnightly and last for two hours with a break of 20 minutes halfway. In the first session we look at the question itself, and you and your life . . . the second session focuses on the physical, the third on the etheric, the fourth on the astral and the fifth on the 'I'. We have a final session to bring it all together re-examining the life question in the light of renewed self knowledge and self reflection.
