The Power of Leisure Identities & Valued Social Roles
Led by Judith McGill of LifePath Facilitation and Training
Tuesday, December 7, 2021 AND Thursday, December 9, 2021
10:00am – 3:00pm Eastern each day
This two-day course helps to build a more robust understanding of how social roles define how we come to know others in social contexts and how we become known. Without this role “lens” it is difficult to help adults to take up a meaningful life in the community where they can offer their gifts and make a contribution.
This energizing and thought provoking course begins with personal introspection around the ways each of us creates a life for ourselves. The unique exercises and dialogue lead to a fuller appreciation of leisure and how it can create aliveness and balance in our lives. Some leading questions include:
- What does it take to support others to go after their dreams, to really do what they have always imagined doing?
- How can people be supported to get on with creating a passionate life for themselves within their leisure.?
“What is really intrinsic in leisure identities is the combination between the doing and the relationship. We appreciate that others really “see us.” We need to be both the giver and receiver. Not always the receiver. Even though it may change over time what remains is a sense that “I have something I am passionate about and I can share that passion with you and get acknowledged for the passion.” That is important for all of us. Particularly for those who live with labels and seem to always be on the receiving end. Our passions help others to see one another as a belonging member of society.” – Past Participant
