GBA 297 - Andre
5 days ago
In GBA 297 we get better acquainted with Andre. He talks about transformation and change in his life and work. Our conversation covers education, dialogue, theology, writing, psychology, acting and so much more. He shares the "origin story" of how he exchanged his adopted name for the original one on his birth certificate, how he became a Priest finally (after being rejected first time round) only to find himself on a different path to the one he'd expected, what he does when practicing systemic therapy, and the relationship between therapy, spirituality, performance and narrative.
