Journey to Self-Discovery

Journey to Self-Discovery

How well do you know yourself? Do you know what you want in life? Sometimes it can be confusing to distinguish your beliefs and values from someone else’s. We can all be influenced by others or feel pressure from society to conform.

This class takes you on a journey of self-discovery. You will create a personality profile that helps to discover your personal 'why' by seeing the past and pushing for future goals and fulfillment.

The class includes 3 sections:

Section 1: Reflection (How)

  • Explore the context of understanding self
  • Take a brief look at the past and how that has shaped you
  • Discuss society and your metric of life satisfaction

Section 2: Exploration of Self (Who)

  • Explore your values
  • Assess your personality
  • Reframe your view of self

Section 3: Looking Ahead (Why)

  • Finding your why
  • Creating personal goals
  • Practice

Who can attend?

Anyone aged 18 or over  who has a desire to learn more about themselves

What will you learn?

You will discover more about yourself by understanding:

  • Some of the foundations of how we think about ourselves
  • Society’s messaging about identity
  • Your personal values
  • How your personality is unique
  • How to challenge some of the assumptions and beliefs we have of self
  • How to start the journey of finding your ‘why’
  • How to create goals that work in your life

When and where is it offered?

  • The class is available as a group workshop and a private class.
  • The group class is offered several times per year. Scroll down for upcoming dates.
  • You can attend this class in person at our office at 9912-106 Street, Edmonton.
  • In our group workshops, you will have many opportunities to ask questions, learn about yourself and your family, hear others’ experiences, and practice new skills. Many people who attend our workshops say they feel better after attending because they realize that they are not alone.
  • In a private class, you will receive the same amount of information as our group workshops, condensed into 3 hours with the facilitator. These are ideal for individuals or couples who want to get started sooner than the next group workshop, can’t attend the group workshops due to work schedules or other personal commitments, or simply prefer a more private setting.

How much does it cost?

Group workshop: $150 per person

Private session: $325 per person

If you cannot afford the full cost, the group workshop is offered at no cost thanks to funding from the City of Edmonton Family and Community Support Services.

If you'd like to donate to The Family Centre in lieu of paying for the class, you can do so here. All donations go right back into covering the next person who cannot afford the full fee. Please add “Education Services” to the message field.
