Workshop title – The battle of belonging or another way of being… married!
Athens, 221 BC –
The wedding has just ended, the celebration has begun. A sibling (a child who has both parents in life) walks among the guests and distributes bread, repeating the phrase: “I escaped something bad, I found better!“. This is a typical wedding scene in Ancient Greece. But similar expressions of the soul are repeated in all ancient traditions to this day, in modern times, at all stages of marriage.
But do the customs and traditions of the peoples, as well as their evolution and change over time, reveal only the systemic dynamics, those that are the determining factors for the longevity and experience of happiness in marriage? And are these factors, after all, independent of race, origin, descent, or social class, stemming from a deep human bonding in soul?
To this day, that wish, “I escaped something bad, I found better!”, is the first therapeutic systemic admission needed by a married couple. Therefore…
Now, I can see my own future ahead and change my life only for the better, now I am free for a new better life!
Online workshop with Nikos [Vayiakakos] and Anna [Saliverou] to systemically explore Marriage as a phenomenon of Belonging. Who is getting married? When does the couple get really married? How marriage is related to the generational preservation and to family continuity? Our individual and group quest will be facilitated through phenomenological exercises. You will need blank A4 paper-placeholders and a personal space of about 2 sq.m.
