On the 17th of March, our Dutch volunteer organized a workshop on “How to get to know yourself”. The goal of this workshop was to learn methods that the participants can use to get to know themselves. Furthermore, during the workshop, the participants needed to answer some questions to understand themselves better.
The workshop started with some basic definitions of the terms self-knowledge and self-awareness. Then the participants learned the reasons why it is important to get to know yourself. For example: if you know yourself, you will learn to accept who you are and self-knowledge boosts your confidence. When you have a better idea regarding the benefits of knowing yourself, the urgency to get to know yourself becomes more apparent.
Next, the workshop provided many methods and questions to get to know yourself better. Journaling, silent meditation and core quadrants are examples of exercises you can do to get to know yourself. Also, questions like: What is the most important thing in my life? were asked. Lastly, the most important tip was given: Stepping outside of your comfort zone. Because the best way to get to know yourself is to challenge yourself.
After the workshop, the participants didn’t leave with a complete understanding of themselves. They did leave with a lot of methods on how they can get to know themselves.
