Guided Autobiography Workshops Project
c/o Social Planning Council of the North Okanagan
Vernon, BC


“TELLING YOUR LIFE STORY” GUIDED AUTOBIOGRAPHY WORKSHOP. The purpose of these nine-session workshops is to introduce to individuals to methods of guided autobiography. This Guided Autobiography (GAB) workshop provides participants informal group discussions to explore common life themes that are influential in shaping our lives. An experienced Workshop facilitator guides initial explorations of the life themes selected, and suggests tools and perspectives on preparing for discussions. To prepare for each meeting, participants write two pages on the selected theme and meet in small discussion groups to share. Common themes in the fabric of everyone’s lives for this workshop include branching points, family, money, work, health, death, spiritual and philosophical issues, and goals and aspirations. Limited to 15 participants.  For more information contact: James E. Thornton at (250)558-3487, [email protected] or the Social Planning Council at (250) 545-8572, [email protected]
