Finding Your Niche: March 8, 2023
Joseph Campbell famously coined the expression, “Follow your bliss.” This has become a compass and guidepost for many seeking their unique individual expression. But how do you know what your individual bliss is? And how does this relate to working with specific niche of practice/focus in psychotherapy?
Common knowledge suggests exploring multiple areas of interest until we discover which one(s) resonate most with our individual self. While this is a valuable pursuit and holds much merit, it leaves out an essential question: “What is looking for you?”
Cultivating skills of curiosity, receptivity and self-trust, we can learn to listen for our bliss not only through the analytical cognitive mind, but also through our deeper “wisdom body” or — to use psychological language — allowing the unconscious to speak to us.This webinar works with all of these mentioned themes, using both active and receptive approaches to align us with more joy, meaning and fulfillment in our unfolding journeys as practitioners.
