This workshop will explore the idea and experience of power from the perspective of force and vulnerability. We will discuss new research in the area of confirmation bias and the purpose of the rational mind as well as explore the experience of force in our own culture. We’ll then contrast these experiences with the power of vulnerability in a demonstration using the dream of a volunteer.

The learning objectives of this webinar are to provide the attendees with an understanding of the elements that contribute to the “I’m right, you’re wrong” culture that we live in and the tools that we have to mitigate its effects.

Will Sharon has been working with dreams since he was a young therapist at the Veterans Administration in Manhattan.  Following 13 years of clinical work, Will spent some time studying acting and working on NYC soap operas. He then embarked on a 25-year corporate career in which he was fortunate to hold several “C” level positions. Throughout his life, he has experienced the cultural definition of success and failure and the many ways that each can disconnect us from the essence of who we really are.

As a coach, Will developed a process for working with dreams in the context of the fundamental tools of coaching; listening and asking powerful questions.  Instead of interpretation, which extracts meaning and then discards the dream, Will helps the client animate and add dimension to the creation of their imagination. In keeping the dream alive he believes that it will inform the client over time.

By seeing the experience of dreaming as an ordinary experience we can better appreciate the extraordinary experience of being human.

A lifelong New Yorker, Will is now a resident of Santa Fe where he is grateful for the experience of the high desert on his morning walks with his dog, Jack.
