As the Greek philosopher Epictetus wrote, many
centuries ago, "It is not what happens to us that is
important, it is how we react to what happens to us
that is important."
Personal mythology is an
approach to personal transformation using the development of
participants' personal stories about existential human issues
for self healing and personal growth. There are also cultural,
institutional, ethnic, and familial myths which influence our
personal myths. We use our stories as personal myths. Often they
can be found through our dreams, where we are often informed long
before we know intellectually. There are four factors that influence personal myths:
biology, culture, interpersonal experiences, and transpersonal
experiences and how to work with them. By identifying,
evaluating, and transforming dysfunctional myths, beliefs, and
worldviews, and working with them you can transform them.

self healing & personal growth and for all those who heal
This work is based on Krippner and
Feinstein’s books/articles on dreams and personal mythology
which draws upon the work of such writers as Carl Jung, Albert
Ellis, Joseph Campbell, Jean Houston, Ram Dass, Dan McAdams,
June Singer, and Stanislav and Christina Grof.
In this highly experiential
workshop, Dr. Krippner will devote concentrated instruction
with mental health and other helping professionals to help
them learn the following:
1) Personal Myths are those
beliefs and worldviews that consciously or unconsciously
influence our clients decisions and give meaning to their
lives. You will learn how personal myths are formed, continue
to develop, and shape ones lives.
2) Some of these myths are
helpful and some are harmful. Learn to identify influences on
clients’ personal myth: biology, culture, interpersonal
experiences, and transpersonal experiences. Learn how the
technology of shaping personal myth would apply to the
development of clients’ personal growth and development.
3) Learn how to evaluate and
transform dysfunctional myths, beliefs, and worldviews and,
develop a set of skills to continue this inner work, and to
apply the tools of this technology to helping clients.
The workshop uses a variety of
exercises (artwork, movement, and Gestalt techniques) are some
of the exercises to demonstrate what's involved in changing a
dysfunctional myth into one that functions well in a person’s
life. Learn to identify/work with personal myth for your healing
or to guide your patients, clients, students.
Krippner offered a great deal of very pertinent information
for psychotherapists, counselors, psychologists in a kind of
compassionate manner. It was possible to work on personal
growth and personal issues while learning new techniques and
accomplishing CECs. This all took place in a beautiful
environment with a great support team.
been a remarkable and joyous experience. Dr. Krippner is a true wisdom keeper.
is a wisdom keeper and a world treasure. In his hands, I have
discovered and grown. He is gentle and great fun! I wouldn’t
have missed this experience for the world.
He is so
full of knowledge. Decades of wisdom and tradition pour out of
him – a National Treasure.
This workshop filled a need in me for some guidance. What
better way to get this guidance than from my own inner myths.
I understand more about myself and in a way I can relate to.
The workshop was well organized and flowed smoothly. Dr.
Stanley was/is wonderful, charming, and vastly knowledgeable.
He gave me permission to do my work.
Stanley’ stories and how he genuinely cares about people.
This has been a delightfully inspiring workshop experience
from a Master who is extraordinarily gifted in his field.
His extensive knowledge combined with his powerful way to tell
stories has been very engaging for me. I intend to explore the
application of the content of this workshop with the children
on the autism spectrum whom I serve.
Krippner is a very wise man with an accepting, compassionate
interpersonal style. This led us through steps to discovering
our personal mythology with grace and good humor. I greatly
appreciated the opportunity to begin this work with him.
I was able to identify what I
always wanted. Discovering my myth gave me the courage and
conviction to begin a new life immediately.
Dr. Krippner’s workshop has had
an extraordinarily positive impact on my life! When I took
his class, I had been working on a book project for several
years. After his workshop, my motivation to complete my book
increased dramatically and six months later I was a published
author! The personal mythology workshop arrived at just the
right time in my life and I am very grateful to Dr. Krippner
for sharing his life’s work with the world.
