It includes stories of both famous and everyday people that overcame structural and personal obstacles to following one’s heart. Discovering, living and sustaining one’s passions are foundational but are often sacrificed in a highly individualistic, hyper-productivity oriented dominant culture. Individualism and hyper-productivity present ethical challenges for many practitioners in the helping professions. Self-knowledge and self-care are ethical keys to being a contribution to client’s lives and essential to being an effective agent for change. This presentation will engage attendees in examining what most brings them alive, what can sustain them in order to live their best life for themselves and to better serve others through sustained self-care that supports ethical practice in the role of helpers, healers, counselors and therapists.
