Our current life problems not only reflect unresolved issues from our past but also provide us with invaluable information about what keeps us from the successful unfoldment of our future. Potential healing solutions to life problems are found by opening a creative dialogue between where we are, where we want to be and the problems that keep us from those goals. Thus we come to see that even our most painful symptoms are often attempting to show us the next step in life. It is our own inner voice, not the doctor's or society's that leads us to fulfillment, and such internalized impositions may even be part of what stands in the way of our growth.
Our entire life story is the raw material of this work. This includes both outer events and the frequently neglected inner world of feelings and dreams, which often dramatically symbolize our situation and indicate needed new perspectives.
