Class Overview

"Values are like fingerprints. Nobody's are the same, but you leave them all over everything you do." Elvis Presley

How to Discover Your Core Values (And What to Do With Them)

There was once a time, upon hearing that a blizzard would envelop the countryside, farmers in the Great Plains would secure a rope from the door of the house to the door of the barn. They had heard too many stories of loved ones being lost in the storm while returning from the barn and freezing to death. Only a few feet away, in a whiteout it was easy to lose your way home.

Values are like that rope. When chaos ensnares us and we lose our way, our values help us find our way home. Our most uncompromising values — what we call core values — are the truest, most vivid expression of who we are. When we no longer live in accordance with our core values, we no longer resemble ourselves. They are that core to who we are. 

Knowing what we value is an indispensable part of knowing who we are, yet it’s an exercise that most of us never undergo. Your values tether you to who you are, and they illuminate the way you should go. This one-hour workshop will help you get clear on your deepest and strongest core values, and begin to discern how you can animate them in your life in a more intentional way.

Who should attend:

This workshop is intended for people who are beginning their self-discovery journey or for people who have been on this journey for a while but have yet to identify their core values. This workshop is a foundational class; the psychological scaffold will be built off of your values.

Your Teacher

Dr. Shelley Prevost

Shelley is a licensed therapist, educational psychologist, and experienced workshop facilitator. After working as a business psychologist and startup executive for the past 10 years, Dr. Prevost has come back to her roots in positive psychology and promoting her belief that psychology is “soul work.” Modern psychology, in its attempt to systematically diagnose disorders and quash symptoms, has divorced the soul almost entirely from understanding psychological health. Through the Big Self School, Dr. Prevost hopes to change that. She believes that we experience life as whole humans and that arbitrary barriers exist between the roles in work and life and parenting and friendships. The goal of our human experience is an authentic integration of all these parts of ourselves, which begins in a deep and abiding sense of self. Only when we know and appreciate ourselves can we rejoin our soul with our roles.

He also has experience writing as a journalist for startups in tech and logistics. He is the author of several books of poetry, as well as interactive-fiction for youth. Over the years, he has innovated writing processes to foster reflection and insight, narrative strength, and authentic voice.
