It's your life - but only if you make it so.
I started MY WAY to explore with others how much are we living life that feels like ours. It was at the time when I felt stuck, doing many things that I did not want to be doing. How did I get here, I wondered. Number one regret of people on their deathbed is that they lived life that someone else designed for them, they adopted someone else's wishes and plans and did not give enough space to theirs.
Since then I have worked with many people and this theme has been relevant for each of them in some way. I am not talking about egoism, I am talking about stepping into the space I have been given, about humility in the face of the mystery of life I have been invited into, about owning my decisions and choices I am making. About checking with myself often, how am I doing? Is this what I want? What options do I have? When I feel I do not have a choice, does it reflect my current reality or is it a feeling I learnt in the past?
I grew up in communist Czechoslovakia and although the regime is gone, we are still feeling its effects ripple through us. I feel them myself, I sometimes keep silent while others are very vocal, I feel I have to adapt, to put others first, to be vigilant because something bad can happen. In any culture and society, experiences of trauma or marginalization might have left many of us feeling disempowered, thinking we do not have a choice even when we are not in that trauma situation anymore. We bring these experiences also into groups we form, whether it is families or work teams.
I will explore with you how to bring awareness into moments where you feel some disturbance, so that you can reconnect with the flow of life. By grappling with these moments, you are creating and living YOUR WAY.
