Project: “Baggage”(500 wd. min.) [50 pts.]


Healing is a transformative process that brings us back into the flow of life. We become energized and present. Although there may still be pain, we are no longer anchored to the things that dragged us down; cutting us off from the sweetness of life. It is safe to say that all of the obstacles that prevent us from being fully engaged with life are areas that need healing.


This project is an opportunity to get a glimpse at some of the subtle and not so subtle areas of inertia in our lives. Take note of where and possibly why you begin to plug your energy reserves into the areas of your life that draining (worries, future concerns, unfinished business, “baggage”, drama, unresolved anger, “story lines”, etc.).
