The Authentic Voice, the Authentic Life: Maria Sirois

New York Open Center, 22 E. 30th St., NY, NY

“May what I do flow from me like a river,” wrote the poet Rilke, and to be in that flow, and create an authentic life we must first find what’s true for us, express it and live it. In this workshop we’ll discuss the elements of authenticity, how they work to bolster self-care, happiness and resilience, and explore the dynamics of authentic speech. Through small group work, conversation, introspection, journaling and meditation we’ll practice moving toward deeper authenticity and discover how to let go of the barriers that make authenticity difficult. And we’ll come to know when to speak our truth, how to do so in the most difficult moments, and what to keep to ourselves. We will leave the workshop with a life plan and practices to support us on our journey.
