      Transformation psychotherapeutic tabletop game “Wheel of Life”

      The psychotherapeutic transformation tabletop game

      “Wheel of Life”

      Dear friends, this is a THRILL OF A GAME that will help you improve quality of your life and find answers to the questions you’ve been long looking for!

      Register for the game and discover more resources and opportunities. Only positive result are guaranteed!

      THE TARGET AUDIENCE:

      If you are constantly moving forward, ready to change your life and go to the heights of success – WELCOME! If you are looking for a unique opportunity to advance in UNDERSTANDING your life situation and identify possible ways to solve it – this game is for you!

      The game will infuse you with DETERMINATION to take action, expand your VISION of the issue, enable you to be sincere and honest with the most important and precious person – with YOURSELF!

      Dear Friends, if you want to get answers to questions related to diverse aspects of your life, learn how to deal with internal obstacles on your life path (e.g. opinions, habits, attitudes) or just understand at what stage of life you are now and what is really valuable for you at present, you should join us and play the Psychological Game “Wheel of Life”.

      We invite everyone over 14 years old.

      DESCRIPTION:

      The game “Wheel of Life” is the only psychological transformation game licensed in Ukraine (decision of the regional psychological expert commission of May 28, 2013, protocol No. 9). The author of the game is Elena Tararina.

       

      Both in life and in a game, everything comes in response to our thoughts, attitudes, emotions, feelings. What are you thinking about? What reality are you creating?

      Conditionally, a human life can be divided into 8 spheres (directions) of activities: family (dynasty), personal life (your partner and you), rest (passive time), leisure (hobbies, hobbies), career, health, friends, and spiritual life.

      These 8 spheres are represented in the form of sectors on a wheel. For a life to be full and harmonious, it is important that a person should maintain balance between the spheres of life, so that the “wheel of our life” rolls in the right, correct direction. But, unfortunately, this is not always the case. In certain periods of our life, we stop paying due attention to one or more spheres of life, and the “wheel of our life” changes direction or moves in the wrong way. In order to harmonize all these spheres of life, this psychological game was created.

      How the game was created.The author of this psychological game is E. Tararina, a practical psychologist.

      Actually, the term Life-couching is quite applicable to the psychological game “Wheel of life”.

      The transformational metaphorical game “Wheel of life” can be used in the following spheres:

      • Relations (in all spheres):

        • Who is to blame for a tough situation: “they all are bad” or “it just happened” so?
        • How to get out of a downfall of relations, recover harmony of feelings and joy in life?
        • How to find love and get married??
      • Plans, projects, new ideas, work:

        • How to build relationships that will not upset your plans?
        • Who is your main ally in solving ambitious tasks?
        • I want to change the job – where should I go?
      • Business development:

        • What or who hinders effective development of your business?
        • How to make the most of your internal resources?
        • Self-actualization, mission, spiritual growth.
        • “What is my true calling?”
        • “What is the meaning (mission) of my life?”
      • Corporate issues (sales, starting new projects, start of business).

      THE DIFFERENCE OF WHEEL OF LIFE FROM OTHER SOCIAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL GAMES:

      Unlike standard training processes, the game creates a space of constant responsibility for the player’s choice with minimal leader’s intervention.

      Transformation is characterized by quick results, unexpected changes: just in one game you can achieve the result that takes years to get in real life.

      GOALS:

      The goal of the GAME is to get a comprehensive vision of the problematic situation you are interested in working out and identify possible ways to solve the problem.

      Transformation is characterized by quick results, unexpected changes: just in one game you can achieve the result that takes years to get in real life.

      The game fulfils the following tasks:

      • Enables to look at the situation from a new point of view and offers the solution to the problem;
      • Helps to see the root of the problem and find the resource;
      • Deals with any request from any sphere of life;
      • Enhances associative thinking;
      • Teaches you to take responsibility for the events that occur in your life;
      • Nurtures communication skills.

      • spend a few hours with your goal and understand whether it is really yours;
      • find out why you haven’t taken the first step yet;
      • see the obstacles that prevent you from achieving your goal and the resources you have!

      The training helps participants realize their goals and resources they have, enable them to look at themselves as if from outside, to realize their unconscious attitudes. The key moment of coaching through the game WHEEL OF LIFE is the following: the participants themselves set a goal for the game, work out the options for solving their problem and, together with the leader formulate the fixation on success.

      During the training, participants change their inefficient strategies of thinking or actions to effective, “winning” ones.

      FORMAT OF THE MEETING:

      A psychological game.
