Creativity as Repair and Transformation
January 22, 2011 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PST
In this workshop participants will explore aids to the mourning process by awakening the imaginal realm with various exercises in active imagination. We will attempt to identify our personal myth and look for ways to connect our inner and outer worlds through symbols. In addition, we will see various practical ways we can use to open ourselves to healing and transformative experiences. Although there will be times for discussion and sharing our stories, silence will always by honored. Please wear comfortable clothing; bring journals and any personal art supplies you may have.
