Anne de Wild and Chris Burke will also be running a Weekend Workshop that follows on from the talk.
A biography is the life of a human being from birth to death. When we think of an animal we can’t speak of a biography because the freedom humans have in acting and thinking has no parallel in animals. A person’s biography is not simply the sequence of days and years filled with incidents or occurrences that comprise their lifespan. Rather it’s a vessel that holds within itself secrets that reveal themselves when working and connecting with one’s own biography. Everything in life can be decisive and yet, when it happens, you often don’t know the full extent of its meaning.
Anne de Wild is a naturopath and biography worker in Basel, Switzerland. She devotes the majority of her working life to biography and social art to show her clients and participants in her lectures that their lives are full of wonder and that they can draw courage from this for the challenges of everyday life. Artful listening and humour are the main ingredients she works with.
Anne will also be running a workshop at Emerson on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd on the theme of: “What is Biography and Social Art?” - Details to be announced shortly.
