A Map for Tough Times
This two-part experiential workshop offers an opportunity to design your personal resilience map for stressful or challenging times. It has been designed by Conny Weyrich, a Certified Practitioner and active member of our Map of Meaning community. Conny will facilitate all sessions and you can find out more about her expertise and background below.
This is a two-part experiential workshop consisting of two sessions: a 2-hour and a 90-min online session in a small group of max. 10 participants.
In-between the two online sessions, you will have time to digest and reflect on your resilience map as well as try some strategies in practice before we meet for a refinement and Q&A session.
Part 1: Designing your resilience map
A 2-hour online workshop in which you will learn about a resilience framework based on the Map of Meaning and develop your personal map for tough times. Your map will be filled with strategies that have worked for you in the past as well as new ideas that seem practical and appropriate for your personal circumstances.
You will anchor yourself in a past story of resilience, when you successfully navigated a challenging situation – Conny will facilitate an approach that helps you tell this story through the lens of meaning.
You will then combine your insights from your past story of overcoming a challenge with the resilience framework to expand your personal map – your map will be built on your strengths, personality, your personal circumstances, and strategies that resonate with you.
Part 2: Reflecting, clarifying and sharing
2 weeks later, we will meet again for a 90-min online session to share reflections on your resilience map and how it held up in real life.
This session is also an opportunity to clarify any questions, refine your map and be inspired by others as well as held by the energy of a community as we support and witness each other.
This workshop will guide you in crafting your personal resilience map as something that feels doable, supportive and tailored to who you are and want to be.
