Animal Body, Animal Soul

March 13, 1999 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Native people have always looked to animals as important teachers and appreciated their soulful qualities. Whether predator or prey, bird, reptile, mammal, or amphibian, knowing the nature and habits of the animals inhabiting our dreams can lead us into greater integration, authenticity, embodiment. Attending to these animals can assist us in developing an authentic libidinized life. Through the experience of play, interaction with animal images, and active imagination, this workshop will explore the instinctual aspects of the psyche.
