Biography Group and Workshop

Posted on by

“[Biography work] is a schooling path to strengthen and stretch our “I” and to develop faculties for meeting our fellow human beings: capacities of observation and thinking, of tolerance, empathy and interest. It instills us with gratitude for all that comes to us, opening a path to the sensing of karma.”
Margli Matthews (Foreword to “biographical work – the anthroposophical basis)


This is a workshop in the traditional meaning of the word: it is designed to not only give a first overview of the seven-year cycles and the many ways of working with them but to explore and work with our own biographies in a safe and supportive group setting. Through the development of individual timelines participants can gain a deeper understanding of the archetypal forces and patterns of these cycles in their lives. Through art work and sharing a deeper understanding of the individual expression of those patterns in each participants own life can be gained.

Group size is held to six participants to allow for a personal and safe experience. Meetings include theoretical information, exploration, personal sharing and art exercises. Weather allowing, some creative exercises may be done outdoors. Some work in between sessions is encouraged to receive the fullest benefit from this workshop. Topics explored include:

  • the seven year cycles
  • planetary influences on the life cycles
  • working with the biographical chart
  • turning points and crisis in biography
  • etc.
