Kill it or feel it?
Making puppets and making them alive was fun and quite easy for everyone, but finding a story for them to play was much more challenging.
But eventually the women in the group came back to the same topic as they started – everyone came here with personal difficulties, boundaries and inner pain and finding a way through them was the most common goal for everyone. How do we cope with emotional hurt – do we try to kill it as soon as possible or do we try to live it through and let the Time do it’s job?
The answer is yes and yes. We are all different and different methods work for us. Therefore, the puppets played two versions about coping with inner pain – destroying it drastically and trying to find a reconciliation slowly.
During the final reflection all women mentioned the feeling of community as the most important aspect of the whole workshop session.
