Psychodrama is an experiential modality originated in the 1920’s and is practiced on all continents in clinical, educational, community and business settings. It involves creative action techniques where a participant is skilfully guided by a psychodrama director to enact their story, and by choosing group members to play significant roles; they may develop insight, raised consciousness, and increased capacity for spontaneity.
The Voyager Tarot cards are visually intriguing and act as a powerful catalyst for delving into the personal and collective unconscious, and beyond. Julie facilitates the group to work with the cards as a warm up to personal exploration of past and present stories that may connect to, and prepare for, future stories.
