“Life Review”: Going Further
with Marv Westwood, Dianne Westwood, and Lin Langley
"LIFE REVIEW" is a form of guided autobiography that explores the impact and meaning of life experiences.
Life Review is a form of guided autobiography. The process includes reflection, writing, reading, and witnessing the stories of others in a small group.
Participants also listen to and describe how others’ life stories have affected them. Considering the events and experience of the past, individuals come away with a better understanding of the present and are better equipped to chart their future.
This workshop delves into new themes for people who have already completed a Life Review or an equivalent process.
We will meet in both large and small groups, encouraging each person to more deeply examine their life as lived. The Going Further themes include early shaping experiences, the role of stress over a life, unfinished business and the dreams that emerge in our lives.
