Live an Authentic Life

CCOM 4011

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” - C. Jung

Do your daily activities, goals and priorities enable you to do what you enjoy and express who you truly are? If not, join instructor Barb Buckley on a reflective journey aimed at living a more authentic life.

As you reconnect with your “real” self, you can look forward to guided exploration of your own thoughts, feelings, values, strengths and life experiences. In a relaxing and non-intrusive setting, you’ll use the children’s classic, “The Velveteen Rabbit” as a springboard for discussion.

To help you develop a clearer personal path, there will be a series of carefully designed introspective activities. You’ll also experiment with a weekly collage-type journal as a way of nurturing your talents and unlocking insights, hopes, dreams, and possibilities.

No materials required.
