Riding the Untamed Dragon: A Workshop on Active Imagination

November 13, 2004 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Workshop:

Active Imagination is the technique, first described by C.G.Jung, through which we enter the imaginal realm. Used properly, active imagination creates a union between the ego and the unconscious, enriches the individuation process and empowers one’s inner voice. It is the means by which the inner world becomes real. Dr. Raff has developed a series of exercises that allows beginners, as well as those more advanced in inner work, to engage in active imagination. This workshop is primarily experiential with some discussion of theory where required. The goal of the workshop is to increase the ability of participants to perform active imagination on their own.
