DANTE’S DIVINE COMEDY | 7 SINS & VIRTUES | A BIGGER, BALANCED LIFE
– 3 DAYS –
Personal leadership development has never been more urgent. Structures that framed professional responsibility in the past no longer fulfill this function satisfactorily. In fluid and networked workplaces, everyone is a leader with responsibility based on personal power.
A revised, 2nd edition of my book, Female leadership: Management, Jungian Psychology, Spirituality and the Global Journey Through Purgatory, will soon be published. Although some things have changed since it was originally released, the rationale for personal leadership development remains unchallenged, and is perhaps more forceful than ever.
Analytical psychology holds that our strength and potential for development lies in the avoided, discarded or disgusting – the shadow. Development entails growth by inclusion, that is, integration of unwanted thoughts and feelings. That way, they transform from stains to jewels. In Purgatory, the second part of The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri describes a journey through polarities of the shadow – the 7 sins and virtues – towards a balanced, free and big life.
During the retreat we will explore the sins and virtues and their significance and relevance for your personal and working life. You will be working in group and pair dynamics as well as individually with me, focusing on your private work on the sin of your choice. You will experience how leadership is fundamentally a private matter – nothing assigned or framed by external expectations – reflecting your inner structures.
The retreat is an opportunity to delve deep and to resurface fully refreshed. It will guide you to expand your horizons and enter 2019 clearer and more resourceful.
The magical medieval village of Airole is situated in delightful Northern Italy, nestled in stunning countryside between the Ligurian Riviera and the Cuneo Alps. The retreat will be hosted at an intimate location close to the Piazza Santissima Giacomo e Filippo, with intermezzos in the beautiful surrounding nature.
