Rewriting Your Story: A Workshop for Changing Your Past, Present, and Future

Julia Jones

Saturday, December 9, 2017 10:00 a.m. (90 minutes) (71a)

This class allows participants to choose one event from their past that creates suffering for them and re-cast the event in order to release past pain and prevent the event from continuing to limit the participant in the present and the future. Methods used for teaching participants to rewrite their story are based on cognitive behavioral therapy, conscious empathy, and the development of self-compassion.

Through a recasting of the past event, participants will discover how many of their own facts were based on feeling and judgment, will consider alternate motives and explanations for people involved in the event (including themselves), and will access long-term positive growth that comes from even the worst life circumstances.

During the class participants will be asked to write their story as they currently tell it to themselves. The instructor will then lead participants through a sorting exercise where fact and feeling are made distinct. Participants will be reminded that their feelings are theirs and should be honored, but it is possible that a re-examination of the facts and the thoughts we have about them might allow for different feelings. The instructor will lead participants through examining their thoughts about their story and analyzing how those thoughts impact their feelings. The instructor will lead participants to consider new thoughts about the story that are accurate or believable but create less suffering.

The group will consider motives, explanations and other details that can often be more broadly understood and interpreted as we gain experience through aging. Participants will be asked to explore how they feel about themselves in the situation from the past. The instructor will lead participants through exercises designed to release old hurts and provide relief and forgiveness to younger versions of themselves. Participants will then write a new version of their story that acknowledges their current and past strengths and that relieves or at least diminishes suffering from the past event.
