ANALYTIC SELF EXPERIENCE
Is your life taking an unexpected tournament? Are you looking for new stimuli, creative insights, a new beginning? Do you feel dissatisfied with your job/relations, deprived of drives, will and desires? Do you feel stressed, anxious, moody, vulnerable? Uncertain about your potential, goals and motivations?Do you question yourself, your gender and identity? There are moments in life when too many uncertainties make us feel as if we were “lost in the wood”, with no clue about what to do. Those transitional stages are often perceived as existential crisis, bringing anxiety and uncertainty about the future; but they can also be good occasions to start a journey of self-discovery of our inner potential.
Working together in an analytical setting we will use expressive techniques like biographical narratives, drawings, fairytales, sandplay, giving space to a journey of discovery as well as recovery informed by your emotions, dreams, anxieties as part of experiencing and learning from new life circumstances.
One of the most fascinating myths of antiquity is the expedition of the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece, celebrating the deeds of the most extraordinary talents of the ancient Greece, like Heracles the invincible hero, Orpheus the cantor of the gods, the Dioscuri twins Castor and Pollux, and many others. What did the 50 heroes have to prove when they sailed with the ship Argo to the Colchis, a faraway country on the edge of the world, following Jason, a reckless young man without a kingdom whose only merit was owning a beautiful boat and having a destiny? All of them were already famous; many of them left a kingdom, a family, lot of certainties; some of them did not return. However, all of them were driven by the same urgency to start the journey, accomplishing the deed, challenging fate.
The Argonauts addresses people who live a transitional stage in their personal and/or professional life and wish to transform these challenges in opportunities for the disclosure of inner resources and the increased awareness of their potential.

If you believe in the creative power of dreams, think that dreams can be a resource to change our point of view on reality in such a dramatic turning point of our society, wonder if we have lost the bonds and collective values that held us together, then you may be interested in this proposal.
“The Dreams Journey” is a proposal that comes from our experience of Social Dreaming during the pandemic and aims to combine the evocative power of dreams with the need to find new points of reference, new maps to be able to move more easily in the new territory that is emerging. The program can be seen as a safe space to overcome a collective trauma, or, more simply, as a tool to deepen together with other travel companions the need to understand where we are going thanks to dreams, hooking the introspective capacity to a collective feeling and nourishing the desire for a different way of sociality, different forms of intimacy.
The next Dream Journey will start soon, to explore “the many fears, anxieties and requests for hope and renewal” that today, at the dawn of 2022, come from all over the world. Be ready to join!!

In the last two years the dramatic global impact of the pandemic led people living and working in organizations, companies, communities to question themselves and the fragile balance of our global society.
To become more aware of our responsibilities for a sustainable world, to repair our fractured connections with nature and the environment, we need to re-imagine our future together, listening to ones others and adopting a multipolar regard.
The Golden Glue Labs delve on these issues, inspired by the ancient Japanese technique of Kintsugi. Tailor-made projects for organizations and communities, to mend the broken relationships with the social environment, developing new points of view to sustain organizational change.
